Mogollon (mo-go-yone) is a notorious ghost town nestled high (6500') in the sky island of the Mogollon Mountains of southwest New Mexico. Uniquely situated above breathtaking valleys midway between Albuquerque and Tucson, it is a two hour drive north of Silver City, New Mexico. Surrounded by the Gila National Forest and Gila Wilderness, opportunities for solitude abound.
When you visit, stay at Silver Creek Inn, a rare two-story adobe structure built by Frank Lauderbaugh circa 1885. The old adobe building has been renovated and restored by Stan King, who arrived in Mogollon in 1980.
Today, the Silver Creek Inn once again offers rooms of character and warm hospitality to visitors of this expansive country.
The Inn provides accommodations for adults only, and is smoke and pet-free. Rooms are available nightly with reservations. All four rooms feature private baths. The Inn is open seasonally from May through October.
Come enjoy the peace and quiet. Hike, bird, bike, photograph. Retreat to an area of openness and art, to talking creeks and creaking stairs, to a town of population 15 and a tradition of southwest hospitality.

Silver Creek left its banks the night of September 14, 2013 and caused historical changes to the town site of Mogollon. Silver Creek Inn survived the raging waters, however State Highway 159 leading to the town site is washed out in Deadwood Canyon and requires high clearance vehicles or 4 wheel drive the last mile to access the town site and the Inn.
Silver Creek Inn is currently taking reservations for the 2015 season beginning May 1, 2015.
Model Behaviors Just 9 miles up and over the winding pass from Alma Store and Grill, Mogollon is a living ghost town tucked between the dark, forest valley below. . . The Silver Creek Inn is owned by Pie Town's Stan King, and maintained by Mogollon expert Sue Lingo, one of the most interesting people that I've ever encountered. In the morning, take a hike up to Mineral Creek Box and pass the giant carved crypt of one of Mogollon's most infamous ghosts, while Sue prepares a wonderful Mogollon breakfast.

Outside Magazine Online WHEN MY GIRLFRIEND, Marin, and I drove into the ghost town of Mogollon (unofficial pop. 15) last July, we thought we'd be treated to the same tourist show we'd seen all over the West. We also thought we'd be checking into just another B&B in southwestern New Mexico, but the 126-year-old Silver Creek Inn is not so much a hotel as a labor of love. . .
