Host Inn | Bear Mountain Lodge

Set on 178 acres nestled against the Gila National Forest, the grounds alone offer a setting of natural tranquility. This luxurious, intimate lodge is a mix of rustic comfort and modern convenience throughout. The cozy but expansive common areas welcome you to relax and read or connect with other guests over a glass of wine. Enjoy the peaceful landscape from your own private balcony or immerse yourself in nature hikes around the property.

PROPERTY FEEL

Rustic luxury with an artsy side

 

UNIQUENESS

Bear Mountain Lodge is located just a few miles outside of Silver City, founded during the silver rush and boyhood home of Billy The Kid. The lodge is filled with purchasable art provided by the Blue Dome Gallery. The lodge property has its own trail system that connects to trails where you can hike the Continental Divide.

 

MEDIA

The Bear Mountain Lodge has been featured in AFAR magazine and The Washington Post to name a few. One of our favorites is their feature in the popular book “1000 Places To See In The United Sates and Canada Before You Die”.

 

SUSTAINABILITY

We love BML’s ongoing sustainability efforts. Before COVID rules required them to pack more in plastic they were almost completely plastic free and working back towards that goal.

CULTURAL IMPORTANCE

This experience connects you to the rich culture of southwestern New Mexico in this serene corner of the Gila Mountains. When you think of a vacation in New Mexico, you probably think of Santa Fe or Taos, but there is so much more to explore in this culturally rich state. We invite you to experience the unique flavor of a less explored side of NM, deeply influenced by the history of the natives of this land.
