Great location
90% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
Built in the Eighteen-Ninetees, the Sheriff Murphy house is a charming "Victorian" adobe home, with a wrap-around porch, two bedrooms, kitchen, a great room, and bathroom with a large old-fashioned bath tub (w/shower). The fenced in yard is ringed with fruit trees.
This house is under new ownership, but not new management. Catherine is still managing the property for us, and you can see the old listing with reviews here: https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/7595694?s=51

The space
A great option for a nice stop along the way through the mountains to Silver City. Or a chance to spend some time in a peaceful and welcoming small western town with friendly neighbors on the edge of the Aldo Leopold Wilderness Area.

Guest access
The entire main house is your private rental space, including the kitchen. There will be 2 tenants staying in the casita and office (separate buildings in the yard), so the yard and laundry room (separate building) will be shared space. The tenants, Tricia and Kaylie, are very nice and respectful people working on their Masters project and volunteering on our project on a neighboring ranch. Kaylie has a friendly but shy dog, Sam, who might spend some time in the yard, but Kaylie will work with you to make sure you are comfortable with Sam and if you have a dog she can arrange for them to meet or spend time in the yard separately.

Other things to note
Most cell phone providers do not get coverage in Hillsboro, but there is a land-line phone and wifi access at the house. If your phone has this option, you can set up "wi-fi calling" which allows your phone to make and receive phone calls via the wi-fi.

Location

Hillsboro, New Mexico, United States

This home is located in Hillsboro, New Mexico, United States.
Hillsboro, New Mexico is an historic adobe village, dating from the 1880s, when it was at the county seat and center of the Black Range Mining district. It's now a small but active community of artists, writers, ranchers and other colorful characters. It's located where two branches of the pretty Percha Creek converge, and the tall trees that line Main Street, which is also NM 152, tap into the moisture flowing in the shallow aquifer.

There is a great cafe, The General Store, a local vineyard tasting room, The Black Range Vinyard, a classic old Post Office, the Black Range Museum, Hillsboro Historical Society, a couple antique shops, and a Library/Community Center, which hosts monthly concerts and other community events. The cafe and library both offer free wi-fi. On Saturday mornings downtown, there is often local music and fresh local produce in season.

There is not a gas station or grocery store in town, but there is a gas station/convenience store at Caballo Lake, a 20 minute drive away. Truth or Consequences, NM is a 35 minute drive away where you can find grocery stores, restaurants, gas stations, hot springs, and even a small movie theater.

We are Wildlife Biologists who split our time between South Carolina, New Mexico, and South Africa for work. Travis is a biology professor and together we run an environmental biology study away program for undergraduates. Travis blacksmiths in his spare time, and Megan spends a lot of time with our two dogs. We love traveling and adventure, but also really appreciate getting to spend time at home. We manage a private room for rent out of our home in Greenville/Traveler's Rest South Carolina when we are staying in SC. Our friend Catherine (and former owner of the house) manages the rental of our new house in Hillsboro, New Mexico.
