Planning a trip to Silver City for a two-nite stay in mid-September. Thinking about staying at Bear Mountain Lodge, but then that would mean doubling-back into Silver City for breakfast prior to heading to the Gila Cliff Dwellings. We don't want to fix our own breakfast, and it does not appear that there are any restaurants open for breakfast in Pinos Altos. How much time does it take to get back-and-forth from Bear Creek Lodge to Silver City?
Maybe we should just stay in Silver City so that we don't have to double-back for breakfast?
Also wondering if there is any place to eat at or near the Gila Cliff Dwellings, or should we take a picnic lunch (which would also mean that we would need to get lunch supplies in Silver City).
Bear Mountain Lodge looks nice, but I just don't know about going back-and-forth.
Also considering staying at Lake Roberts, but it also looks "iffy" for eating breakfast and for getting lunch supplies. Any thoughts about Lake Roberts?
