Best B & B Ever

5 on August 15, 2017

This was a wonderful and peaceful B & B. Hosts were delightful. Love the extras found in the kitchen and the use of the refrigerator. T & J

Beautiful, peaceful and perfect

We had a wonderful stay, best of several times we have stayed. Master bedroom view of the Tooth was great, and the dozens of hummingbirds vying for feeders in the courtyard was a beautiful sight. Staff is gracious and accommodating, breakfast was wonderful. Drinks in a hell fridge and snacks in the kitchen in case someone is hungry late. Makes you feel at home, and all you have to do is kick back, rest and relax. We will be back, hopefully for a little longer next time.

I didn't want to leave

Thanks for the great views, great food, great service and great new friends!

Fantastic piece of history

This is a jewel of a place with a million dollar view. Staff was very friendly and great breakfast. Only issue is the building is overdue for a full maintenance to preserve its unique architecture. Also access road needs some upkeep to smooth it. All in all a great place.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for your review of the Casa del Gavilan. The Casa does have one of the best views around. I am happy to hear you enjoyed breakfast. We look forward to your next visit.

The best sleep of our tour of CO-UT-NM

5 on July 20, 2017

This is a great place that I'd love to visit again. It's very peaceful and pretty. I stayed here because I was picking up my son from Philmont. Allison the Innkeeper was very nice.

Great bed and breakfast

4.4 on July 16, 2017

Very beautiful property with spectacular views, comfy bed, with a very homey feel. Breakfast was really good! Great place to stay before heading to Philmont Scout Ranch. One item to note that there is no lunch or dinner available on property and no local places deliver. Not a problem if you have a car, but we turned ours into the rental agency. We're able to ride into town with another guest to dine.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for your review of the Casa del Gavilan. I am glad to hear you enjoyed your stay, transportation not withstanding. As indicated on our website, the Casa is in a very remote location, so we recommend that guests have transportation. I am happy to hear that the bed was comfortable and the breakfast was good. We look forward to your next visit.

Where history and beauty meet

4.6 on July 13, 2017

We had a wonderful two nights at this gem just outside Cimarron. Nestled in natural beauty, this B&B is truly delightful. The common rooms are large and well-furnished and full of history. The courtyard in back looks out on the mountains and is a great place to chat and just relax. Breakfast both mornings was awesome! The kitchen is always open for guests to grab a drink or a snack. Cold beverages in the covered porch were a special treat. Alison and Beau did a great job making us feel welcome and at home. We stayed in the smallest room (which was originally the master suite dressing room). it was clean and comfortable and had it's own en suite. Next time, though, we'll book one of the larger rooms. Take some time to tour the Villa Philmonte, the Chase Ranch and Rayado. They will give you a glimpse into the history of the area and all are staffed by Philmont Boy Scout Ranch employees. And don't forget to stop by the St. James Hotel for good food and maybe a glimpse of one of the resident ghosts.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for reviewing the Casa del Gavilan. I am happy to hear that you were able to spend some time in the common rooms. There is certainly plenty to read/look at in them! I am also happy to hear that you got to enjoy the courtyard. It is a very relaxing spot. We look forward to your next visit.

This a great B&B with the best view of Tooth of Time Ridge. The staff was extremely helpful and nice. We would definitely stay there again.

Breakfast are awesome an the innkeeper the best! We loved the setting, the absolute quiet, and we live in a very quiet place, the spaciousness of the land, the walks, the wildlife, and I loved playing with the horses grazing everywhere. Antelope playing. wild turkeys. Cant wait to go back..
