Rancho Gallina

31 Bonanza Creek Road , Santa Fe, NM 87508 USA (Show map)


Rancho Gallina is a tranquil retreat, located on the scenic Turquoise Trail south of Santa Fe. Authentic New Mexico meets the 21st century at this solar powered bed and brunch, nestled among working ranches and world-class cycling, yet only 10-20 minutes to hiking, art colonies, and the Santa Fe Farmer's Market. Guests enjoy organic farm fresh breakfasts from our classically trained chef/owner, evening wine and cheese, and excellent coffee and espresso. Rustic elegance abounds, from serene courtyards and desert gardens to high quality linens and private baths. Guests love our hand-built cedar hot tub, surrounded by mountain views and amazing night skies. This 10 acre oasis is a bird-lover's haven, and we are proud to have been awarded Green Leader Platinum status by TripAdvisor.

The perfect home away from home!

Leslie and Mitch are absolutely fantastic, and the home that they have created at Rancho Gallina is heavenly. Our interactions with them prior to arrival, during our stay, and even after we left have been fun, informative, and easy. From the moment we arrived, we felt welcomed, comfortable, and ready to relax on the beautiful property. The main home really promotes a sense of casual comfort and quaint simplicity, as if you were hanging out in your own living room. The warm decor and build of each room inspires you to want to stay forever! Leslie and Mitch are excellent cooks and hanging out with them in the morning is definitely part of the fun :) The is much to discover and explore around the property. We will return many times!

Look No Further!

Look no further for your stay in Santa Fe! Leslie and Mitch are top notch hosts who will provide you with a beautiful remote authentic location to stay with your own privacy. The breakfasts were better than any restaurant. 5 stars!

Truly a home away from home.

Staying at Rancho Gallina was like visiting old friends in a spectacular setting. Leslie and Mitch and their two daughters were so hospitable, warm and generous that we felt like we had known them for years. The rooms are lovely and the grounds gorgeous. Spending Thanksgiving week here in the very beautiful outskirts of Santa Fe,, baking pie in the Ranch House kitchen and reading by the blazing kiva fire, was magical. We particularly enjoyed the delicious and creative breakfasts made by Leslie and Mitch, and dining with them and the other guests (who also felt like old friends) each morning in the Barn. For our family, it was a rejuvenating, spirit-lifting and unique holiday.

Wonderful Get-away

We spent 2 nights at Rancho Gallina. It was great and we would certainly love to go again. There are full kitchen facilities, with a wonderful outdoor eating area. We met other like-minded people there, and spontaneously shared dinner, wine and great conversation. Breakfasts are delicious--Mitch is quite the New Mexican chef, whipping up buckwheat crepes with prosciutto and perfectly cooked sunny-side eggs from the chickens who live out back, and huevos rancheros with chile sauce. I would love to have a party catered there if we lived closer, and I can certainly imagine renting out the whole place for a family reunion. Leslie and Mitch make you feel completely at home.

Great Weekend!

Data page wouldn't take outstanding ratings! Bad news! Leslie and Mitch have a wonderful B & B! Definately outstanding all the way around. Two folks who work hard at providing a home away from home. Great food, friendly knowledgeable hosts, clean large rooms, eco friendly grounds. We'll be back!

Comfortable, enjoyable stay

My fiancée and I stayed for two nights in the Moroccan Room at Rancho Gallina. We felt that we had ample space in the room, and access to the rest of the house including the kitchen to cook a number of meals was an added bonus. We enjoyed the home-like feel of the place. The breakfasts were delicious and exceeded our expectations. We enjoyed the hot tub, the animals on the premises, the other guests were friendly and interactive, and our hosts went above and beyond in terms of friendliness and hospitality. Overall we would highly recommend. Only thing to keep in mind is that Rancho Gallina is a bit outside of Santa Fe but if you don't mind a slight drive (20 mins) this will be OK.

Northern New Mexico at it's Best!

True Santa Fe Experience

4.8 on July 24, 2015

We chose Rancho Gallina because we wanted to stay in an adobe home and to experience an authentic New Mexico vacation. We were pleasantly surprised by the fantastic breakfasts and the friendliness of our hosts. Family emergency caused us to cut the vacation short and Leslie and Mitch were willing to help us in any way to get home. They made our stay very enjoyable. Evening bonfires, howls of coyotes, sunsets over the mountains, fresh country eggs for breakfast and friendly hosts made our stay one of our favorite bed and breakfast experiences.

About the innkeepers

After full careers in union and social change work, Mitch went to French culinary school, Leslie took up chickens and organic gardening, and we were lucky enough to find a slice of authentic New Mexico that has only improved with TLC and time. Renovating and running the ranch is our full time work, play and hobby. We love cooking, cycling, music, hiking, coffee, traveling, our daughters and our pets. And we love visits from friends new and old.
