Silver Creek Inn Review

Just getting to this property in the ghost town of Mogollon in the western region of the Gila is something of a thrill; the scenic and twisty mountain road that leads here has some heart-stopping, steep drop-offs along the way. Once you've arrived, settle into a room at the one-time J. P. Holland General Store, one of the original, two-story adobe structures in this old mining town, which is now all but abandoned (population about 15). The large, ochre-colored 1885 inn building has been refurbished beautifully, and further tweaks and finesses are an ongoing project for the committed innkeepers. Each of the four rooms has a private bath, and a delicious full breakfast is included in the room rate (rate is dropped $20 per person if you opt for the simpler Continental breakfast). Head here if you're looking for a relaxing getaway in an out-of-the-ordinary locale. The inn is open seasonally and is for adults 21 and over only. Walk-in arrangements are often possible, although advance reservations are recommended.
