A Natural Treasure

5 on October 13, 2014

An awe inspiring view of the Tooth Of Time and it's mountain range. Warm and comfortable hospitality each and every time we stayed.

Wonderful place

Wonderful place and setting. Would stay again and would recommend. Only thing wrong was that I found some sand under my pillow. Who knows, maybe the sandman stays here. Davi Debris

Our favorite place for R and R

The Casa has been a favorite family get-away for years, whether it's a 'Christmas In July Gathering' where we have reserved the entire place or an Autumn visit with friends to just enjoy the peace & quiet, the awesome stars & Milky Way, meet new people, and play a little cards and dominoes.

A Great Place to Get Away

3.8 on October 08, 2014

This place is a gem if you just want to get away for a night or two and relax. You can curl up before the fire with a book from the library or read it on the sun porch or courtyard.. And for those that want something to do during the day, we visited the nearby Seton Museum and Villa Philmont as well as the Chase Ranch located on Ponil Creek and the Kit Carson trading post in Rayado. All four are run by BOY Scouts of America. We also visited the Old Mill Museum in Cimarron. While the Casa only serves breakfast, we had a great dinner at the historic St. James Hotel in Cimarron. Other great places to check out are The Porch for lunch and the Colfax Tavern, "Cold Beer", about 20 miles east on Rt. 64. Their green chili cheeseburger is well worth the drive.

A wonderful place to relax!

This was our second visit to "The Casa". It was just as enjoyable as the first: great hostess, comfortable rooms, and wonderful views.

NM at its best!

This place is a gem! Nestled within the Philmont Scout Ranch, it is a wonderful respite.

The Casa is a nice place to stay while visiting Philmont.

3.2 on August 18, 2014

Nice place to stay, but the innkeeper stayed in her room most all of the time and didn't appear at breakfast.

B&B not to be missed

5 on August 09, 2014

We had a wonderful stay at Casa Del Gavilan. The room was comfortable and nicely furnished, the breakfast was fabulous, and the views breathtaking. I would recommend it for anyone in the area, especially if you are visiting Philmont.
