Perfect Getaway

5 on January 09, 2017

The Casa is truly one of a kind. So unique, beautiful, and surrounded by mountains and wildlife. How we loved saying good night to the owls, and good morning to the deer, right outside our door! Not sure how they did it, but the temperature in every room was perfect! The best sleep I've had in I don't know how long. Felt nice to wake up refreshed, relaxed, ready to explore. Thank you Allison, for going above and beyond to ensure us the full experience. Amazing food and service too!

Innkeeper Response
We appreciate your review of the Casa del Gavilan. It is pretty amazing to hear the owls calling to each other at night, and to see the deer walk right up in the front yard during the day. I am pleased to hear that you had a refreshing night's sleep, and you enjoyed the food. We strive to provide every guest with a memorable experience. I hope you will think of the Casa when you are planning your next getaway.


Offers unique opportunity to see the Cimarron area

4.4 on January 02, 2017

Casa del Gavilan is a step back into the time of early twentieth century western ranch estates. It is rustic, yet comfortable; offers quietude, but is not too isolated; and most importantly it allows you the opportunity to consider life and listen to others in a way we rarely do in our all-too-fast-moving and noisy world. The trail around the property offers fantastic overviews of the area and should not be missed. Allison was a wonderful host.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for your review of the Casa del Gavilan. I am glad you enjoyed hiking the trail and taking in the sweeping vistas. It sounds like you had a peaceful, relaxing stay. I am pleased you enjoyed the area and look forward to your next visit.


Casa Del Gavilán Review

5 on October 29, 2016

This is such an outstanding historic property near Philmont Scout Ranch & Villa Philmonte- a peaceful retreat. Breakfasts were outstanding each of the 3 mornings we were there. The separate guest kitchen for snacks was such a nice touch. Allison was very accommodating in allowing our Philmont kids to join us for breakfast- with advance notice & a nominal fee. All was outstanding!! J & G of California

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for reviewing the Casa del Gavilan. I am glad that the kids could join you for breakfast-the other guests enjoyed their stories. I hope you will be able to visit again.


What a Vacation Should Be

5 on October 27, 2016

Beautiful surroundings in a quiet, peaceful area. If you want loud night life outside your door and police sirens, go somewhere else. You can have a full bar experience at the old St. James hotel 6 miles north. Here you get solitude and 225 acres of mountain area to hike and relax. Breakfast was included and was wonderful. The hostess was exceptional, and we've stayed in a lot of B&Bs, so we've seen it all. We will definitely stay again.

Innkeeper Response
We appreciate your review of the Casa del Gavilan. It certainly sounds like you had a very relaxing, peaceful stay. I am happy you enjoyed your visit. I look forward to your next visit.

The Casa and why I recommend it

5 on October 02, 2016

We have been long time visitors to the Casa. Each room is unique, we are happy to stay in any of them. The den and study are great places to visit with other guests or just to be alone. The feel of the whole place really speaks to us. The walk down the 1.2 mile long driveway as the sun is rising is spectacular and the sunset isn't too shabby either. Before you go, take time to study the area's history- the Santa Fe Trail for example. The Boy Scouts of America Philmont Scout Ranch is next door. Take time to visit their Villa Philmonte, their Tooth of Time Trading Post andnthe Seaton Museum ( open, but in a temporary home while a new one is being constructed )

Innkeeper Response
We appreciate your review of the Casa del Gavilan. I am happy to hear you enjoy staying in any of the rooms. The den is a nice place to visit with other guests, or just a quiet place to sit and relax. I certainly look forward to your next visit!


20 years anniversary. ..PERFECT

5 on September 14, 2016

Was able to surprise my wife with a weekend stay for our 20th anniversary. We were pleasantly surprised when we were let in thru the gate and started down the 1.25 dirt road and saw dear on one side and antelope on the other we knew this was going to be a special weekend. When we arrived at the covered portico and greeted by Allison , she already had our room key, gave us a tour of the beautiful home and it's history. She showed us to our room, The Phillips, and it was beautifully decorated with its period and private bath. This room was only one with a fireplace but since it was labor day weekend wasn't needed. We parked out vehicle in the assigned area, we were warned that a bear has been rummaging in the area lately so make sure we didn't leave any food in our vehicle. The views were stunning when we pulled into parking area. We slept in perfect peace in the bed that you just melted into. The next morning my wife awoke like a kid in a candy store when she saw seer grazing outside the window, of course I was still one with the bed, but it was nice to see her excited. We went to breakfast with the other couples. Allison had made fresh coffee and juice, to go with quiche that was out of this world. We spent the day exporting the local area of Cimarron and the St James hotel which was fantastic since I love history. We had a late lunch and went back to the B&B, when we arrived Shannon went to the room and I made us some hot tea, on the way back she started squealing like a child on Christmas morning, when I arrived she said shhh you might scare him away. She was looking at the bear in the woods outside out window. She took a bath and commented about how the softened water made her skin feel smooth. We noticed that the room had been cleaned and freshen up. We slept again peaceful again. We went to breakfast again to stuffed toast with all the trimmings. Sadly we had to end our weekend had to come to an end. But we will definitely be back.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for your kind review. You certainly sound like you had a relaxing anniversary. I am happy to hear that you enjoyed the breakfasts, and it is always nice to know that the beds are comfortable. Most of the wildlife around seemed to make appearances. Please let your wife know that the bear is no longer making an appearance-I'm sure she will be thrilled to know that hers was the last sighting! I am looking forward to your next visit.


Paradise at Casa del Gavilán

5 on September 12, 2016

Location nestled against the Sangre de Cristo was fabulous. Five nights gave us the peace we always need. Allison was the best host! We enjoyed our evenings star gazing and watching thunderstorms far in the distance. We came for the land and we not disappointed. The Casa and Allison were a bonus.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for your review of the Casa del Gavilan. I am happy you got to enjoy both the star gazing and watching the thunderstorms to the east, and that you had a peaceful stay. I do hope you will stay with us again.


September '16 Getaway at Casa del Gavilan

4.8 on September 07, 2016

I was looking to find a remote location which would reunite me to with the New Mexico I have always enjoyed. Fresh mountain air, stunning colors, rugged smooth and welcoming terrains. Unexpected sounds and visits from wildlife. Gentle-styled floral with welcoming fragrances. Adobe buildings furnished with flair style and history. Inn keeper and staff hospitality absolutely exceptional. My two sisters and I are more than impressed, we like this place. Richard Grey, Austin,TX

Innkeeper Response

Perfect relaxation!

5 on September 04, 2016

One night was not enough to soak up the tranquility of this beautiful spot, hidden away from the noise and rush. The sunset, sunrise and mountain views were captivating, along with the glimpses of wildlife all around. The stars are so clear away from city lights. Loved it! Allison is the perfect hostess, making us feel right at home. Being the only guests that night, and wanting little more than coffee for breakfast, we didn't see her in the early morning. However, we found delicious hot coffee in the pot, fresh juice in the fridge and a perfect loaf of banana bread ready to slice. We had the place all to ourselves. What a way to watch the sun rise.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for your review of the Casa. I am pleased to hear that the skies were clear for star gazing, and the wildlife made an appearance. I am also happy that you had such a relaxing stay. I do hope you will return for more than one night!
