Night at the Casa

4.0 on August 13, 2016

Great Location, nice room, funky shower didn't work well but great soak tub. Other Adult guests were very rude and noisy at 5:00am as they left and they are regulars so beware!!! But the staff and Casa are wonderful. Lovely Breakfast, great snacks and coffee!!!! Beautiful star fill sky's made for a lovely evening.We will think about visiting again, just hope the regulars are not there.

A Wonderful Retreat in the Mountains

After staying in the Casa del Gavilan while visiting a friend in New Mexico, I can honestly say that I would return just to stay here again. The people are very friendly, and it has a community environment in which all of the guests are encouraged to get to know one another. The location provides stunning views, and there are many chances for close encounters with the friendly deer and rabbits that wander around the hotel. Homemade breakfast is served each morning in a large dining room. I would definitely recommend this place to any staying in Cimarron.

Innkeeper Response
I am glad you got to know the other guests-the environment is very conducive to meeting others. The wildlife is always a hit, especially the large jack rabbit. Thank you for your recommendation, and I look forward to your next visit.

I'm happy you enjoyed the hospitality. I hope to see you again!

Best overnight experience we have ever had.

Our stay was for two nights and my wife and I both agreed the Casa del Gavilan Historic Inn is the best experience we have ever shared together in our thirty years of being married. We have spent upwards of $400.00 a night to stay in places around the United States known as 4 and 5 star hotels, but our stay in Cimarron is at the TOP of the list. Wonderful staff, beautiful surroundings and I slept like a baby (QUIET). Also, we had the best breakfasts, especially the egg casserole on our last morning. We were treated to a wonderful experience and plan to be back for another stay(s). Thank you to Allison for her care and making sure our stay was the best it could be, because it was!

Innkeeper Response
I am humbled by your kind words. I am pleased you liked the breakfasts-the egg casserole seems to be the favorite of guests. I'm glad you enjoyed the quiet of the Casa, and I await your next visit.

A Wonderful Place to Stay

Casa del Gavilan is a unique experience, offering a community environment in which to meet new people who are also staying there. It is situated in a stunning location at the base of mountains. The people there are very friendly qnf caring. A stay at this house could be a vacation by itself.

Innkeeper Response
We strive to make every stay the most unique experience around, from the views, to meeting the other guests, to how we treat each guest. I am happy to hear you enjoyed your stay, and hope to see you again.

Casa is a wonderful old historic bed and breakfast located within the borders of Philmont Scout Ranch. It is very secluded with outstanding views of the Sangre De Criste Mountains. There is an abundance of wildlife. The grounds are beautifully kept. Allison, the Innkeeper is great and her breakfasts are outstanding. Great place for peace and tranquility.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for sharing your experience. We strive to make every guest's visit a memorable one. I am happy the wildlife decided to visit! I hope you visit again soon.
