Great host: left antipasti, fresh eggs, wine, cookies, etc for our stay. Richard was the most welcoming host ever. The casitas were so charmingly decorated and comfortable we can't wait to stay again. Gorgeous views of the surrounding mountains, by a wetland with birds, an interesting town and surrounding area to explore, and on and on... I can't say enough.

Richard was very helpful upon our arrival but was somewhat reticent upon our leaving. Also, it did not feel nice to see the personal welcome sign for the next guests posted on the gate before our departure.

We celebrated our wedding anniversary with a trip to Taos and a stay at Casa Gallina. It was so comforting to walk into a warm, inviting kitchen with a bottle of wine and plates of goat cheese, crackers,and olives. The casita was so cozy and cute, that I didn't want to leave it to go to dinner. Richard also left some fresh laid eggs so that we could have breakfast in the morning. The kitchen was well-equipped, with coffee and tea-Richard had half and half and butter in the fridge, so there really is everything for a nice breakfast. We loved feeding the chickens and there was a garden to pick some lettuce and parsley. After a full day of touring Taos, we came home to a plate full of the best oatmeal cookies ever made-! Richard made our stay so special-we hope to come back soon.

Casa Gallina defies the category of bed and breakfast. We stayed in our own casita, 2 bedrooms, 2 baths, fully stocked kitchen, plenty of quiet spaces inside and on the property. Richard, innkeeper and owner, is gracious, helpful and obviously gifted with generosity and warmth. You will immediately feel at home and invited to rest. We shall surely return. (Dining great in TAOS.)

My husband and I took a three-day weekend in Taos in early October. Though we've lived in Albuquerque for years, we had never made it up to Taos, so we had high hopes for this mini-vacation. Casa Gallina did not disappoint. Our casita was perfectly appointed and we arrived to a warm welcome from Richard and a lovely little spread of snacks and wine. Richard gave us insider's tips about the best places to eat and the sights to see while in Taos. Casa Gallina is close to everything but you still feel like you're away from it all. So quiet and peaceful! The kiva fireplace got heavy use during our short visit. We just LOVED our time here and we can't wait to come back for another visit. Thank you, Richard, for everything!

Stayed two nights and wish we could have stayed longer. Richard is extremely welcoming and helpful with recommendations for local activities and restaurants. A must if you are in the Taos area.

Extremely nice place to stay. Having our own casita was special. The 3 star for dining is simply because you cook your own breakfast in your kitchen. Fresh eggs and a garden with a nice selection of veggies are available. Richard provided a great welcome with a bottle of wine and munchies. Couldn't have been nicer.

Richard has created an amazing oasis! Every detail ….. from peppermint shower gel to organic hot tea, fresh eggs, fresh flowers, herbs, access to garden for veggies made it such a little home away from home. I cried as we headed back home and still look back often at pictures just to have a moment of peace! It's so important to take time for recharging and relaxing in order to stay healthy and this place is perfect to do just that!! We even enjoyed gluten free homemade treats and never ate out during our stay! The place was comfortable and worked out great to have a full kitchen for cooking up some simple homemade meals. We felt so recharged!! We will certainly return for some more relaxation!!

Our 3 night stay at Casa Gallina was amazing. Bantam Roost was the more private casita, although each one appears unique and has privacy as well. From the fresh eggs to the peppermint bath soap, fully equipped kitchen, treats, furnishings, property with stream running thru, friendly dogs, chickens, garden ---- Richard has thought of everything and makes each guest feel so welcome. With gluten allergies it is often difficult to travel, but not this time! Richard brought us fresh gluten free treats. We never ate out while we were in Taos. The setting at Casa Gallina is so relaxing that we didn't want to leave for meals. This truly is a gem tucked away in the meadow. It way exceeded our expectations. We are already planning our next stay!
