Historical Rural Mesilla - Casa de Line Shack

Historic vacation home in Mesilla
We welcome you to our own little get away in the rural area of Mesilla, Nm. This 1 - bedroom, 1 - bathroom with room for 5 guests has amazing comforts, beautiful scenery, great scenic walks nearby, and within walking distance to the plaza, this casita has everything you need to get away! The home is made from Adobe blocks that range from 18" thick to 30" in some places. The Living room and Kitchen of the Casita was actually the original carriage house of the main house. You will find rural Mesilla a quieter and slower paced area of Las Cruces. With its rich history dating back to the mid 1800's you will find history with Billy the Kid, Pancho Villa, and the Santa Fe Trail. Mesilla Plaza shopping area and restaurants are a short walk down Calle de Sur through Pecan Orchards and Historic Mesilla. Wonderful art galleries featuring local artists, great shopping, and one of a kind dining experiences await on the Plaza. The Casita shares a driveway and a courtyard with the property owners, Christopher & Russell. When you open the rustic gates to the courtyard you are welcomed by a trickling pond and beautiful flowers and plants everywhere you look. This 900 sq/ft Casita has a beautiful kitchen with a electric stove, convection microwave, and every other amenity you need for your stay. A large living room with a fireplace, TV, Sleeper Sofa (Queen) and other luxuries to make your stay as homey as possible. The bedroom has a comfy queen sized bed with a large double French door closet. A bathroom with all amenities included, and a shared washer and dryer with the property owners. We hope you will find our slice of Rural Mesilla as peaceful and calm as we do.

4/5 Good

Came to explore Las Cruces
A bit hard to find (Google Maps does not take you to the address). Keypad entry was not working properly, but owner did come to rescue us. Was woken up around 3 am to very loud fireworks/gunshots?..Kitchen is cute and came stocked with goodies for us to enjoy, however the large wood latch door rattled and let lots of cold air in during our windy night. Location is good for exploring the area and the fireplace and Netflix made for a relaxing night. Courtyard was cute as well.

5/5 Excellent
