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 lovely headquarters for any Taos adventure. The casitas are comfortable, beautifully rustic and uniquely decorated. The grounds and very pleasant. Fresh eggs daily and surprises from host including welcome wine reception and cookies.

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.

This was among the best inns I've ever stayed in. Richard, the host, was phenomenal. The casita we stayed in (Bantam Roost) was beautiful--clean, artsy and well-appointed. I cannot think of a better place to stay in Taos!

My partner and I had a wonderful stay at Casa Gallina on our recent trip to Santa Fe and Taos. Richard, the owner, has created the perfect getaway on the rural outskirts of Taos. The beautifully-decorated casita we stayed in had a full kitchen, entertainment center, comfy furniture, and a lovely fireplace. It felt like home away from home. We enjoyed fresh eggs every morning from Richard's girls in the backyard. We found special treats ready for us after a day of exploring the Taos area. And we also enjoyed the very nice shampoo, soap, and lotion that was available to us. Normally, when we're on vacation, we are not happy when we experience inclement weather. Here, we were actually happy when it rained one day, because it gave us an excuse to hang out in that cozy casita. We thank Richard for his attention to detail, and for his hospitable, but nonintrusive, approach to our stay at this highly-recommended place.
