A prefect time and location, close to the heart of Taos but on a quiet country road. Owner knows the area well and gave good recommendations for dinner and museums. Will definitely recommend this spot to anyone planning to visit this area.
I had never been to New Mexico and always wanted to go for a creative retreat. I found Casa Gallina a bit on a whim--looked at the pictures, read the reviews, and booked in about 15 minutes. Best 15 minute decision ever! The property is beautiful, with Richard's heart and soul evident in every little touch. I've never felt more welcome upon arriving at a destination ever! Map, directions, tips on restaurants, things to do, coffee places (and oh...the coffee from World Cup...) The cassitas are homey and gorgeous and comfortable and every day Richard stops by with a little extra something from his own kitchen or yard. The chickens are soothing, the sky is huge--if you want to experience New Mexico, do it from Casa Gallina!
Our host LeAn was welcoming and helpful with evening plans. And she cooked up a memorable breakfast which we enjoyed while chatting with her about cats, peacocks, and all things Taos. The room was comfortable Southwest and having a fireplace with real wood was a special treat. I'd definitely return to American Artists Gallery House on my next stay in Taos.
Case Gallina is a perfect way to experience the rustic beauty that is Taos. Every aspect of our cottage was great- it was cozy and convenient - had exactly what we needed- good coffee- cozy bed with nice sheets- a great fireplace- chickens in the back yard that offered us the most delicious eggs ever! I will return again and again! Thank you, Richard. I know there is a lot hard work and attention that goes into the east and simplicity of it all. Kindly, Todd
My wife and I stayed a couple of nights in the Gecko's Garden room shortly after Christmas. The room was very nice and comfortable and the Inn was conveniently located. Breakfasts were delicious. We recommend this Inn to Taos travelers.
If you want to be among the scenery and stars, enjoy a room, fireplace or near a little village, look no further than Adobe & Stars. The breakfast is the highlight of this place with Corrinne giving hospitable and French touches to each breakfast each morning. We were slow to leave but want to come back again.
The Inn was lovely, inside and out and decorated beautifully for Christmas. Every room was clean and delightful to include the living room and dining room. The Inn was easy to find and once there we had easy access to our room which was large and well-appointed and also very clean. Yolanda, the owner, made our stay special and treated us like old friends. She was delightful and funny and very helpful in recommending good restaurants and even the best slopes for skiing. Altogether it was a wonderful place to stay and we will go back again.
My wife and I stayed at Dreamcatchers in November 2015. Our hosts were wonderful even before we arrived. John provided excellent advice on getting to the Inn from Santa Fe and even though we arrived at night we did not get lost! Our room was wonderful and cozy and the wood burning fireplace was great on a cold night with snow outside on the ground. Recommendations for places to eat were excellent and we ate at Lambert's two nights in a row for outstanding gourmet meals with excellent wines. Breakfasts were wonderful and fun given the mix of interesting guests at the table. Certainly, this is where we hope to stay next time we come to Taos!
John and Prudy have created quite an oasis--within walking distance to town square yet far enough to maintain that quiet, rustic feel. Wealth of knowledge made planning our time there a breeze; we didn't feel like we wasted a minute. Scrumptious breakfasts, catering to guest needs and food sensitivities. Looking forward to a return trip!
Lovely digs. Very quiet and restful. Spectacular views. Lots of privacy. No "group breakfast" here, so one can wake up at your own pace. Owners are very sweet. Rooms tastefully appointed, avoiding the kitsch of many B&B's.
This place is a most wonderful getaway. Comfortable, private, quiet, charming, I can only say good things about our stay. It is not exactly a bed and breakfast, in that you have your own kitchen and farm fresh eggs are provided, plus kitchen staples are provided, but you will need to buy and prepare your own food for the most part (although Richard happened to provide us with the occasional delicious and delightful snack here and there). This is not the cheapest place to stay, but the location is great, the whole experience was wonderful, our host most charming, the accommodations everything we expected and more. I would highly recommend that anyone stay here if you want a non-chain experience that is first rate in every way. We would go back in a heartbeat and will always remember our fantastic stay here!
This is a very nice, well worth the price, off the beaten path, out of the way B&B. Having stayed at three other B&B's in Taos over the years, we have found a place we will definitely be returning to. The breakfast is excellent!
I have had my eye on Casa Gillina for a couple of years. When I found it online, I researched it along with all the other B&Bs in the Taos area. In my research, I found Casa Gillina to meet my needs the most. It did NOT disappoint. Everything and more than what I could have asked for. The Leghorn is well appointed and beautifully decorated. The fresh eggs each morning we're a delight. The baked goods were delicious. The grounds are beautifully maintained. The hosts are very friendly and helpful. We will return in the future. Thank you for a most enjoyable vacation!
We have stayed at Casa Gallina multiple times and are always impressed by the property-inside and out. The rooms are so well decorated and appointed that you feel right at home. The large grounds/yard are very well maintained and provide an inviting opportunity to explore and sit and take in the wonderful environment of this rural place. The girls (chickens) are enjoyable to watch and the gardens with the acequias crossing the yard create a magic atmosphere. Our hosts, Richard and Matt, provide and maintain a welcome mat all their own. They bring hot muffins one morning and warm cookies the next along with unlimited eggs delivered to your room. Each time we arrive there is a personal thank you note awaiting along with wine and snacks. Even the neighbor's donkeys give out a welcome shout. We WILL be back!
