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!

We wouldn't stay anywhere else. Have been there for the past 6 years and it's so wonderful. Richard is the best host we've come across in any small lodging settings. He's warm and friendly as are all the casitas. You'll find organic fresh garden veggies in the summer to prepare in well stocked kitchens. Outdoor private seating for units and beautiful grounds to stroll. The bedding is wonderful. We feel relaxed and well taken care of when we leave and look forward to the next trip. One caveat, you may want to bring ear plugs for the chickens in their coop waking up early. But it's worth it if you eat eggs and want them fresh in the am.

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.

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!

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
