We're glad we came.....

4.4 on November 17, 2014

The Casa del Gavilan was a first night stop on our "girls weekend" of 3 women of "a certain age". It made for the perfect start. The building, a historic adobe structure, is an attraction in it's own right with its thick adobe walls and vigas. It is an old building but the character quickly overshadows any notice of some wear around the edges. The breakfast was both elegant and filling. We stayed in the Guest House which was clean and comfortably furnished and worked well for our group. This B&B is a hidden gem slightly off the beaten path. If you want street lights and city sounds this is not the place for you. But if you are looking for a restful comfortable place with a beautiful vista, I would strongly recommend it. Bring a camera and a book and plan to unwind.

Extraordinary beauty tucked in the edge of the mountains and high plains. Send time and plan to come back more!

Great couple days

We were visiting Philmont for a days and the Casa was a perfect stop. We will be back, rooms are very nice and the views of the Tooth are wonderful if the weather cooperates.

Great Experience

Stayed here for two nights and had a wonderful experience. The room was very nice, and comfortable. The breakfasts in the mornings were delicious. I highly recommend the stay.

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

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.
