Beautiful and welcoming for our family!

5 su agosto 27, 2017

The house is a delightful retreat, and Allison made us feel so very welcome even though we had young children and had to arrive later than expected. The beds were soft, space was ample, bathroom was clean and pretty, and the general air about the place was a feeling of peace and cheerfulness, with the mountain views and the hummingbirds and flowers in the courtyard. Breakfast was served at a reasonable time and was warm and delicious. Great coffee, too. We enjoyed meeting our table mates and having a nice talk about Philmont. We will be back someday!

Risposta del proprietario
We appreciate your review of the Casa del Gavilan. I am pleased to hear that you had a relaxing stay. I always enjoy when families visit the Casa- seeing the excitement and look of amazement on children's faces is very fulfilling. We look forward to your next visit.

Beautiful, peaceful and perfect

4,6 su agosto 07, 2017

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.

Risposta del proprietario
We appreciate your review of the Casa del Gavilan. I am glad that you had the chance to experience the dive-bombing hummingbirds in action. They are very entertaining to watch. I am also glad to hear that you had a peaceful, relaxing stay. We hope you are able to visit again soon.

A magical place!

5 su luglio 28, 2017

We visit this lovely, historic B&B every year and are never disappointed. This year we were greeted by a herd of antelope and their babies. We picnicked in the courtyard and watched the dozens of hummingbirds hovering around their feeders. The mountain, The Tooth of Time, keeps watch over the Casa and time seems to stop in its presence. A lovely, mystic experience! Dick and Vicky U., TX

Risposta del proprietario
Thank you for reviewing the Casa del Gavilan. What a special way to be greeted upon your arrival-the antelope herd. I am pleased to hear that you enjoyed a picnic in the courtyard, and were kept entertained by the hummingbirds. We look forward to your next visit.

Perfect get away

My husband and I had such a wonderful time at the Casa del Gavilan. It was beautiful and relaxing. The staff was friendly and helpful. We will definitely return!

Fantastic piece of history

4,6 su luglio 25, 2017

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.

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

Great bed and breakfast

4,4 su luglio 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.

Risposta del proprietario
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 su luglio 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.

Risposta del proprietario
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.

Great peaceful two day stay!

5 su maggio 30, 2017

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..

Captivating History

4,8 su maggio 30, 2017

The Casa represents true history given Jack Nairn had it built in the early 1900s using adobe construction. The location is captivating. Had I realized just how incredible this property is, we would stayed more than one night.

An escape

I spent seven years at the local Philmont Scout ranch. I always saw this home up on the hill. I was in Denver and had some free time, booked a night, I was NOT disappointed!

Beautiful,mystical inn

5 su aprile 29, 2017

The inn is beautifully situated at the confluence of the plains and the mountains on the original Santa Fe Trail.It is remote, with wildlife all around. The interior is well-appointed with western art, pottery, and statues. Rooms are spacious, well-decorated, and comfortable.The common areas are welcoming and abundant. The setting took my breath away.

Old Philmont fans

5 su aprile 24, 2017

Location, location, location. What a gem in the Sangre De Cristo mountains. The Adobe building is fabulous. This B&B feels like a home. The views of the Tooth of Time and the surrounding mesas are breath taking. The wldlife is abundant. Cimarron is 6 miles away for some "Old West" exploration. Allison is an outstanding host who can cook an award-winning breakfast. Snacks and sodas are available 24/7. The library/study is a very comfortable rooms for relaxing. The living room is also a great area for conversation and chilling. A fireplace is availableasy in this room. The bed rooms very comfortable. What a wonderful location to recharge the batteries. Don't miss the Cimarron Canyon drive.

Risposta del proprietario
Thank you for your review of the Casa del Gavilan. I am very happy that you had such a relaxing visit. The wildlife really like to show off! Both the library and the living rooms are popular places with guests to enjoy the quiet of the Casa. I am glad that you enjoyed your stay and I look forward to your next visit.

Perfect Getaway

5 su gennaio 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!

Risposta del proprietario
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 su gennaio 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.

Risposta del proprietario
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 su ottobre 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

Risposta del proprietario
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 su ottobre 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.

The Casa and why I recommend it

5 su ottobre 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 )

Risposta del proprietario
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 su settembre 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.

Risposta del proprietario
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 su settembre 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.

Risposta del proprietario
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 su settembre 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

Perfect relaxation!

5 su settembre 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.

Risposta del proprietario
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!

Night at the Casa

Great Location, nice room, funky shower didn't work well but great soak tub. Other Adult guests were very rude and noisy at 5:00am as they left and they are regulars so beware!!! But the staff and Casa are wonderful. Lovely Breakfast, great snacks and coffee!!!! Beautiful star fill sky's made for a lovely evening.We will think about visiting again, just hope the regulars are not there.

Risposta del proprietario
Thank you for your review of the Casa del Gavilan. We strive to provide a quiet and relaxing stay for our guests. Unfortunately some of the quiet is out of our control. We rarely have problems with guests making noise, and these guests certainly should have been more considerate to those still asleep. We apologize for the inconvenience and will try to remind our guests that others are sleeping early in the morning. We do hope you will stay with us again in the future.

A Wonderful Retreat in the Mountains

5 su luglio 23, 2016

After staying in the Casa del Gavilan while visiting a friend in New Mexico, I can honestly say that I would return just to stay here again. The people are very friendly, and it has a community environment in which all of the guests are encouraged to get to know one another. The location provides stunning views, and there are many chances for close encounters with the friendly deer and rabbits that wander around the hotel. Homemade breakfast is served each morning in a large dining room. I would definitely recommend this place to any staying in Cimarron.

Risposta del proprietario
I am glad you got to know the other guests-the environment is very conducive to meeting others. The wildlife is always a hit, especially the large jack rabbit. Thank you for your recommendation, and I look forward to your next visit.

Best overnight experience we have ever had.

5 su luglio 18, 2016

Our stay was for two nights and my wife and I both agreed the Casa del Gavilan Historic Inn is the best experience we have ever shared together in our thirty years of being married. We have spent upwards of $400.00 a night to stay in places around the United States known as 4 and 5 star hotels, but our stay in Cimarron is at the TOP of the list. Wonderful staff, beautiful surroundings and I slept like a baby (QUIET). Also, we had the best breakfasts, especially the egg casserole on our last morning. We were treated to a wonderful experience and plan to be back for another stay(s). Thank you to Allison for her care and making sure our stay was the best it could be, because it was!

Risposta del proprietario
I am humbled by your kind words. I am pleased you liked the breakfasts-the egg casserole seems to be the favorite of guests. I'm glad you enjoyed the quiet of the Casa, and I await your next visit.

The Casa is located in a beautiful, isolated area. The quietness and solitude is intoxicating. My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Guests have private rooms and baths, but have access to several beautiful rooms within the main house including the kitchen, library, and a large common room with a fireplace. The views are outstanding...the service is excellent. There is a beautiful courtyard and patio with a great mountain view. An outstanding and unique inn that we hope to return to soon!

beautiful area, great room, friendly staff, very satisfied. will definitely return :-)

Stay here if you at all can

5 su settembre 11, 2015

This is a magnificent B&B. The rooms and other furnishings are like a museum. The bronze works in the rooms are to behold. It sure is tucked away near the mountains. You must be buzzed in the front gate on your arrival and then given a code for furture returns during your stay. Breakfast was wonderful and the famous St. James restaurant is only a few miles away.. Truly a lovely place to stay.

Historic night out

5 su agosto 24, 2015

We stayed at the Casa del Gavilan for 2 nights. The rooms and house are lovely and full of interesting historic photos and information on the area. Our hostess was very nice and we enjoyed sitting with her in the late afternoon on the patio. The setting is amazing with the mountains as a backdrop. Wildflowers, birds, deer and antelope all added to a magical feel.

Classic New Mexico inn experience

My niece and I stayed here to experience a place off the beaten path and with New Mexico charm. The inn lived up to expectations - Very comfortable, nicely designed, antique atmosphere, and nice innkeeper. I would stay here again, for sure, and highly recommend it if you are looking for a unique place in the countryside.

Casa del Gavilan 2015

4,8 su luglio 17, 2015

I have stayed many times at the Casa del Gavilan, and its effect on me has always been civilizing. It helps to know about and like Philmont Scout Ranch, which is very near by and whose history is entwined with the Casa's. Enjoying a glass of wine in the courtyard while watching the sun set over the Tooth of Time is a stirring experience. Having slept many times in Philmont's backcountry, in the storms and lightening and heat, I am thrilled at the Casa's proximity to those memories, while also keeping me at a safe distance. A fine place.

A Gem in the Land of Enchantment

5 su giugno 22, 2015

Our favorite place to stay when we visit Northern New Mexico. The staff makes you feel welcomed and tend to your needs. The food is amazing and they are able to handle dietary restrictions easily. The rooms are charming and comfortable. The views are stunning, and the courtyard is the perfect place to see the mountains and enjoy your first cup of coffee.

Beautiful Casa in Cimarron NM, but breakfast so-so

3,8 su giugno 10, 2015

We enjoyed our stay at the beautiful Casa del Gavilan in northern New Mexico. The house was pretty and nicely decorated. The location is very naturally beautiful and quiet. The one thing that we were less than thrilled with was the breakfast. It was nothing special and needs attention. Good coffee would be a nice start. Sorry to be critical, but the food didn't match everything else, IMO.

We're glad we came.....

4,4 su novembre 17, 2014

The Casa del Gavilan was a first night stop on our "girls weekend" of 3 women of "a certain age". It made for the perfect start. The building, a historic adobe structure, is an attraction in it's own right with its thick adobe walls and vigas. It is an old building but the character quickly overshadows any notice of some wear around the edges. The breakfast was both elegant and filling. We stayed in the Guest House which was clean and comfortably furnished and worked well for our group. This B&B is a hidden gem slightly off the beaten path. If you want street lights and city sounds this is not the place for you. But if you are looking for a restful comfortable place with a beautiful vista, I would strongly recommend it. Bring a camera and a book and plan to unwind.

Extraordinary beauty tucked in the edge of the mountains and high plains. Send time and plan to come back more!

Great couple days

We were visiting Philmont for a days and the Casa was a perfect stop. We will be back, rooms are very nice and the views of the Tooth are wonderful if the weather cooperates.

Great Experience

Stayed here for two nights and had a wonderful experience. The room was very nice, and comfortable. The breakfasts in the mornings were delicious. I highly recommend the stay.

A Natural Treasure

Wonderful place

Wonderful place and setting. Would stay again and would recommend. Only thing wrong was that I found some sand under my pillow. Who knows, maybe the sandman stays here. Davi Debris

Our favorite place for R and R

4,8 su ottobre 08, 2014

The Casa has been a favorite family get-away for years, whether it's a 'Christmas In July Gathering' where we have reserved the entire place or an Autumn visit with friends to just enjoy the peace & quiet, the awesome stars & Milky Way, meet new people, and play a little cards and dominoes.

A Great Place to Get Away

3,8 su ottobre 08, 2014

This place is a gem if you just want to get away for a night or two and relax. You can curl up before the fire with a book from the library or read it on the sun porch or courtyard.. And for those that want something to do during the day, we visited the nearby Seton Museum and Villa Philmont as well as the Chase Ranch located on Ponil Creek and the Kit Carson trading post in Rayado. All four are run by BOY Scouts of America. We also visited the Old Mill Museum in Cimarron. While the Casa only serves breakfast, we had a great dinner at the historic St. James Hotel in Cimarron. Other great places to check out are The Porch for lunch and the Colfax Tavern, "Cold Beer", about 20 miles east on Rt. 64. Their green chili cheeseburger is well worth the drive.

A wonderful place to relax!

5 su ottobre 07, 2014

This was our second visit to "The Casa". It was just as enjoyable as the first: great hostess, comfortable rooms, and wonderful views.

NM at its best!

This place is a gem! Nestled within the Philmont Scout Ranch, it is a wonderful respite.

The Casa is a nice place to stay while visiting Philmont.

Nice place to stay, but the innkeeper stayed in her room most all of the time and didn't appear at breakfast.

B&B not to be missed

5 su agosto 09, 2014

We had a wonderful stay at Casa Del Gavilan. The room was comfortable and nicely furnished, the breakfast was fabulous, and the views breathtaking. I would recommend it for anyone in the area, especially if you are visiting Philmont.

Beautiful Bed and Breakfast

Casa Review

A stay at the Casa

4,0 su luglio 13, 2014

Our stay at Casa del Gavilan was generally very good. It is an old building and shows some wear around the edges, but the patio was lovely, and it was wonderfully quiet. The setting, smack against the Tooth of Time rock formation, was superb. And we enjoyed the longer hike. We found the breakfasts tasty (we stayed two nights) but a bit skimpy. The price was quite fair, somewhat below other B&B's we have stayed in. All in all, if you want a quiet place, off the path, far from any madding crowds, we suggest you check out the Casa.

A part of NM History

4,4 su luglio 11, 2014

Off the beaten path, but worth the time to experience a bit of New Mexico history.

pleasant weekend at the casa

3,6 su luglio 06, 2014

We always enjoy our stay at Casa del Gavilan. The only thing that could be added would be a little fresh air to the room. Not sure how they could do this.

Casa del Gavilan Has It All...

5 su maggio 29, 2014

You could not ask for anything more than what Casa del Gavilan has to offer. Truly beautiful, peaceful surroundings in which you can just feel the history surround you while enjoying the beautiful ambiance of the land as well as the remarkable Casa itself. Clean, comfortable, authentically furnished sleeping rooms, library, dining room, gathering room and outside courtyard all make one feel like what a guest of the original owner,Jack Nairm, must have enjoyed themselves. So much to enjoy!!!

Rugged elegance

4,6 su novembre 27, 2013

This "home of the eagle" is so much more than the hotel that I expected. From the drive in--where there were a herd of prong horn grazing beside the road, to the spectacular view of the "tooth of time" to the wonderful décor of the great rooms, this was an entirely enjoyable several days. The host was gracious--a really nice person. My wife's favorite was the corn meal pancakes with blueberries. When we got home, the first morning she had to make them again. A delightful experience!

Charming B&B

Area was very beautiful and peaceful. Nice stay.

The middle of nowhere is where it's at

4,6 su ottobre 27, 2013

Just outside Cimmaron, New Mexico, and a long drive down a gravel road, it is an oasis, seamingly in the middle of nowhere. Cattle graze on the range that they share with deer, antelope and elk. We even saw a jackrabbit on our drive in to this converted hunting lodge bed and breakfast. The 360 degree views are awesome, where the prairie meets the Rockies. It is situated in the middle of a Boy Scout Retreat. Our room was comfy with its king bed and gas fireplace, and the lodge is welcoming with large leather sofas, and reading library. Breakfast is delicious and the kitchen and pantry is available 24/7 for snacks. Wifi is available in the lodge.

Wonderful family stay

We stayed with the family. The Casa was very kid friendly. Love this place

We enjoyed our visit to the Casa. My son and I had trekked Philmont back in 2000, I wanted my wife to experience the beauty of this country. Our stay at the Casa was relaxing, the food was wonderful and the Innkeeper really assisted us in getting to know more about the area. We would like to go back and visit again.

Our favorite New Mexico getaway!!

5 su settembre 29, 2013

We LOVE coming to the Casa; usually doing so after camping in the Valle Vidal. It is a friendly and comfortable place, and we will continue to come back!! Be sure to spend some time in the common rooms, and do take the hike on the trail around the property!

Great Fall Getaway

5 su settembre 28, 2013

I've been doing Philmont treks and PTCs just to get into the backcountry, for years. I thought it time I shared the area with my wife. I hit a home run with our stay at the Casa del Gavilan. she loved it!

Great stay in Northern New Mexico

We enjoyed our stay at Casa del Gavilan the night before our check-in at Philmont Training Center just down the road. Thanks for a great place to stay in this corner of NM.

most relaxing and revitilizing place I have ever stayed

5 su settembre 17, 2013

Truly a destination I did not want to leave.Wonderful spacious rooms, great place to sit outside or walk/hike around the the hills and wide open sky's to enjoy rainbows clouds sunsets and stars. We will go back as soon as we can.

Casa del Gavilan

Welcoming and restless in a beautiful setting.

Beautiful casa

5 su agosto 29, 2013

This property is in the middle of the Philmont Scout Ranch and has gorgeous views. The casa itself is lovely with western style rooms. The main casa has comfortable living spaces to rest, relax, read and revive. The bedrooms themselves reflect the western heritage and are more than comfortable. Our room was the Webster with a queen size bed as well as a twin in an alcove that made it perfect for our grandson travelling with us.

Wonderful get-away

5 su agosto 27, 2013

Casa del Gavilan is the perfect get-away from the stress of daily life. The setting is magnificent, and the quiet of the surroundings is mesmerizing. The inn itself is charming and retains all the patina of its age. This is not a glitzy resort, and that's why it feels so comfortable. The library has real books that you might want to pick up and while away an afternoon reading. Joe and Noelle prepare delicious breakfasts that you might find in one of Santa Fe's best restaurants. But after breakfast, they fade away and leave you blessedly alone. We felt like we had the whole house to ourselves all day. And did I mention the herd of antelope that hangs out in the front pasture? We plan on returning, and its only a 2 and 3/4 hour drive from Santa Fe.

WOW and the mountain views were good too!

4,8 su agosto 23, 2013

It was a perfect 3 night stay. The food was beyond great, rooms were clean and true to the photos, service was the best. I will stay there again and tell my friends and family to do so.

Paradice on the Plains

4,8 su agosto 13, 2013

Lovely, historic inn. Guest rooms are nicely decorated, common rooms are large and comfortable and have books & games, a telescope for star gazing, field guides, and afternoon tea and cookies. The courtyard is delightful, filled with flowers and birds, and is a pleasant place for reading and enjoying the view. There is a hiking trail on the property & deer and pronghorn antelope roam the area. The hosts are warm and welcoming. A perfect place for peace and quiet, a wonderful place to get together with family & friends.

Wish we would have been staying longer

5 su agosto 08, 2013

Stayed in the Miranda-Maxwell suite, very spacious. Enjoyed the common great rooms. The view of Tooth of Time Ridge is spectacular, particularly at sunrise. Land line computer access was nice. Breakfast was 9ish and wonderfully creative. Deer and antelope encounters common.

Breathtaking views, awesome breakfast, gracious hosts

4,8 su agosto 05, 2013

We arrived at the Casa and were warmly greeted by the innkeepers. This beautiful inn has the "picture postcard" view of Philmont's infamous Tooth of Time mountain outcropping. The breakfasts were spectacular -- homemade breads, warm fruit compote, delicious eggs. The public rooms are welcoming and full of history of the inn. We had a great time, loved the many hummingbirds in the courtyard and truly enjoyed our stay.

Loved the stay and wish to return with friends...

4,4 su agosto 02, 2013

Inn keepers were extremely friendly and were very attentive to us. It is a gem in a remote location; nevertheless is well worth the stay for the value of the property and surroundings.

July Vacation

5 su luglio 30, 2013

Visited Philmont and stayed at Casa del Gavilan. The only bad thing is that it was for only two days. I highly recommend Casa to anyone wanting a beautiful place to stay. They make their guests feel very welcome. Beautiful courtyard to enjoy, surrounding mountain view, could easily have spent more time at Casa. Noelle and Joe make you feel very much at home and prepare a wonderful breakfast each morning. Thanks to you Casa!!!!

Wonderful Historic Inn

4,6 su luglio 28, 2013

Noelle and Joe were wonderful, attentive Innkeepers. The breakfast each morning were very delicious. The view of the Tooth of Time is awesome. We were visiting our daughter who is a Philmont ranger so the close proximity was very convenient. We would definitely stay there again.

You Never Want to Leave

5 su luglio 27, 2013

The old adobe building just shines in all its whiteness while enjoying accentuation of the deep green mountains and gorges that surround you. You cn see forever and while sitting in the courtyard in the evening, you don't want to leave until every star is counted. At these moments the feeling of forever becomes real - and you and I become unimportant. Noelle and Joe watch over your every need - not only with surprising breakfasts but quiet, uninterrupted tea in the afternoon if you wish. As they move and do you know that they are happy you are there. It took them 5 minutes to size me up and from then on they were one jump ahead of me in putting things, ideas, thoughts that I enjoy right out front. Did want to leave - but....

Best B&B ever!

5 su luglio 26, 2013

My husband and I have been to many B&B's in multiple states and this one is so very special. It is in a a gorgeous isolated location of New Mexico. The innkeepers are very warm and generous and the breakfast is truly gourmet! Lots of history and hiking trails. I had an opportunity to run part of the old santa fe trail which was really cool. This is a definite must if you enjoy history, serenity, food, and a lovely atmosphere.

We spent two nights in the Nairn room and found everything to be well kept and cared for. The Innkeepers were friendly and made us feel at home. The courtyard was very nice and a comfortable place to spend the morning and evening hours. The trails on the property need to be better marked.

Great sunset and early morning hike

3,8 su luglio 08, 2013

My stay was great except I stayed in the Beaubian room and would not stay there again. I like lots of natural light and with the only window leading to the walkway where people can look in, my drapes stayed shut. Other than that, the surroundings were wonderful, the Inn Keepers were the best!, breakfast was good.

What a surprise for this hidden treasure!

5 su luglio 07, 2013

We found out about the Casa through the Philmont website and booked on a whim. It turned out to be a fantastic surprise! We loved every minute we were there and wished we could have stayed longer. The Casa is gorgeous and has beautiful views of the Tooth of Time and surrounding areas. The breakfast was delicious - we were more than happy with what was served. Customer service was great also. Loved the Nairn Room - more than enough space for the two of us. Also grateful for the kitchen at our disposal. Only complaint was that the internet didn't work but I can't say we really needed it. Can't wait to come back! Hope this turns into a new family tradition for us!

wonderful stay

4,8 su maggio 29, 2013

This was a very nice B&B. Old building but clean. The area was gorgous. The only thing that surprised me was the mile of dirt road leading up to the B&B, because we were on motorcycles and I didn't do my homework. The staff was very welcoming and the beds were very comfortable. The view was awesome!! I would like to stay again.

At the foot of the Tooth of Time

4,8 su maggio 29, 2013

Our stay on Memorial Day weekend at Casa del Gavilan in Cimarron New Mexico was OUTSTANDING. The location could not be beat. I went to Philmont Scout Ranch as a young Man (22, 24) and to Philmont Training Center with my family 15 years ago. Now I was able to go staying right at the base of the Tooth of Time. The innkeepers, Joe and Noelle are so great. They have only been there a month and have really taken on the location and the Casa. They have learned the area history, and have learned the history of the Casa. The food is great. Had two breakfast and both were so good, and so filling. I love the way we had breakfast so we could interact with everyone. The breakfast alone would cost you $20 a person or more anywhere you go. In my reviews I always say the good and the bad: Good: Location, the house, the rooms, the fact that there is no TV, the food, the Innkeepers, and the price. Bad: Really nothing, I did give a suggestion to improve the wireless Internet, since the building is so thick, it only is in the dining room. I would not only recommend the Casa to everyone, I would scream it from the rooftops

"My God, it's full of stars"

5 su maggio 23, 2013

In more ways than one....I normally go for hotels but this B&B rises above all others of the kind. It was great when I stayed there 12 years ago and was even better when I was there last Sunday. The wonderful young couple in charge know what they are doing in a big way.The location is spectacular; miles away from anything and the night sky could humble even the most arrogant among us.

Excellent Service, Superb Food & Amazing Location

4,2 su maggio 17, 2013

Joe & Noelle, the new innkeepers, were determined to make our stay very enjoyable and ensure we had no issues. They obviously enjoy cooking - all of their food was prepared from fresh ingredients and superb. The location and ambience of the Casa are amazing.
