It's elegantly decorated with local art and antiques from the historic Old Cuchillo property and comes furnished with a full bed, desk, dresser, closet, bedside table, TV, and DVD/VCR player (with a selection of movies). It has convenient access to a fully furnished kitchen, diningroom, livingroom and bathroom available to all guests.

The courtyard, which is wonderfully shaded, has outdoor seating, a small fire pit, gas grill, fountain, a fig tree and a pear tree.

Cuchillo is a small ghost town hidden in a small valley in the Southern New Mexico Desert. This historic property once served as a stagecoach stop for the mines in Chloride, NM and the railroad at Engle, NM and the old hotel has given shelter to travelers in the area for over a century, and is now available as a short or long term vacation rental near Truth or Consequences, New Mexico.

The historic hotel building is set on the Old Cuchillo Bar property, which has housed the old saloon, general store, post office, mercantile, stables and hotel since being established as a stagecoach stop in the mid 1800s. The historic adobe hotel structure was elegantly remodeled with sustainability and awareness in mind. The home is elegantly decorated with artifacts, antiques and art from many of the local artists. The Old Cuchillo Hotel comes with everything you need to quickly get away from the real world for a rest.

The Old Cuchillo Bar invites you to come and enjoy ultimate relaxation and comfort in this gracious 1800's historic adobe hotel.

Cuchillo, NM is located 8 miles off Interstate 25, only 2 hours south of Albuquerque, 3 hours from Santa Fe and 2 hours north of El Paso, Texas. 4 hours from Tucson.
