Amazing stay at Casa Gallina

5 on July 21, 2014

We couldn't have asked for a better experience. The room was comfortable and full of modern touches, the property was charming, and our host introduced us to some of the best sights and activities in Taos. We'd visit again in a heartbeat!

This was our second visit. We first stayed here in 2007 and were so impressed and taken by the place we vowed to return. To our shame it took us 7 years. After this length of time it is often the case that a return to a place can be disappointing. However this was not the case on returning to Casa Gallina, we are delighted to say our lovely memory's of our first visit were surpassed. From the welcoming delecasies and the constant supply of culinarine treats from Richard to the accomdation and surrounding views. Our 5 night stay in the Red Rooster Casita was with out a moment of hesitation 5 star.

wonderful experience

Richard was a great host and always welcoming. The casitas and the property are a little slice of heaven. We could not have asked for more. Definitely worth the nine hour drive. We will be back!

Wonderful visit

Our family enjoyed Casa Gallina immensely. The accommodations were outstanding. The kitchen is well equipped. We arrived late to find a bottle of wine and tasty hors d'ouevres on the kitchen table. No meals are available, but the owner provides 1lb of freshly ground excellent coffee, along with fresh eggs and home made pastries, daily; and plenty of information and advice about places to go and things to see in Taos. The grounds are delightful and the eggs are provided by a small army of chickens that are maintained in a fenced area on the property. The location is a few minutes from the town center, which suited our preferences. I highly recommend Casa Gallina, and we plan to return.

Our stay at Casa Gallina was delightful. When we arrived, there was a bottle of wine and antipasto to welcome us. Richard mapped out the key points of interest in Taos. The decor was charming. The accommodations were very comfortable. There were home made afternoon treats as well as fresh eggs from the chickens. Richard is a wonderful host who sees to it that his guests are well cared for.

Staying at Richard's Casa Gallina is like entering a world set apart. Everything from the welcoming bottle of wine to sitting in the garden watching the girls scratch for food is a pleasure. Richard has seen to every detail for your comfort. Because of him my husband and I now own chickens. I admit ours do not have the class of Richard's girls. I highly recommend Casa Gallina, karen frances

I miss my casita at Casa Gallina

4.8 on April 25, 2014

I had a lovely stay in Taos and my casita was a highlight. I only stayed two days, but it immediately felt like home. I had a great deck with views of the mountains. A cozy living area with a fireplace and a nice kitchen. The bottle of wine and the snacks waiting for me were a nice touch. I would stay there again if I make my way back to Taos.

Just amazing!

This is such a beautiful and serene place to be! It is beautifully decorated, and so comfy and cozy! Our host Richard is so kind and thoughtful and just wants you to be happy and feel at home. Which we did! He made sure all our needs were met. He also spoiled us with delicious and homemade treats everyday! And made a point to check in us regularly to make sure we were taken care of! I just love it here and can't wait to return!

A Slice of Heaven in Taos

5 on February 04, 2014

Everyone who runs a B&B hopes or aspires to offer the kind of hosting that Richard does effortlessly. Truly warm, welcoming, charming ... we adored our little adobe home, the views towards the mountain are fantastic, the furnishings great, all the little touches perfect. We got to see a side of Taos we would have missed with spot on dinner and country walk recommendations. Easily one of our favorite B&B experiences ever. We'll be back.
