Property description

Our Days Available calendars are updated every morning. Please check our main website (links are above the 'Photos' section near the bottom of this page) for more details and images of our three beautiful and unique vacation rentals.

NEW FOR 2016: Enjoy the culture of Santa Fe and the beauty of the Rio Chama Wilderness by taking advantage of our unique vacation rental combination. Our PIED A TERRE in Santa Fe is included when you reserve either Ranch Casita or Anasazi Cabin for one month for $4,500. See our main web site (link below) for details.
Anasazi Glamping Cabin is located within the only twenty mile long gated box canyon in the Chama Wilderness. The cabin includes a completely equipped and carpeted kitchen, living room, and dining area under a 20x30 foot roof. The cabin has cold running spring water, table, chairs, cooking stove, refrigerator, pots, pans, tableware, propane barbecue, and fire pit bowl.

The rental is located on the site of an early 1900s homestead and is one of three vacation rentals we have in the canyon, with Ranch Wilderness Casita and Remote Wilderness Casita.

Unique at your camp site is a 1,000 gallon soaking pool nestled inside an earthen and rock open-air water storage area which was originally built by the ancient Anasazi Indians, with a breathtaking view of the canyon's 1,700-foot red sand stone walls. The pool is fed with continuously flowing cool spring water.

Gallina Canyon Ranch has been featured in many national and regional magazines, including New Mexico magazine, The Santa Fean, Better Homes and Gardens, Sunset, and Martha Stewart Living.

On rare days when heavy rain makes the road too muddy to travel, we will take you to the camp and leave with you our mud-friendly truck with tire chains for emergency use.

The specially designed protected play area for your children is at the ranch. You may walk or drive. At the ranch is the community swimming pond, inflatable kayaks, floating trampoline, Slither (a 17-foot water park floating snake on which children can sit, stand, and walk), floating arm chairs, boogie board, and a sand box with children's toys. The Gallina River runs right by this area where children love to play in the mud. We supply towels. Not far from the pond is the ranch playground with swings, rotating teeter totter, jungle gym, horizontal bar, hanging merry-go-round, donkey cart, pioneer wagon, grape arbor, and chairs. WiFi is available in these areas.

o) The camper includes king, queen, one single bed.

Campers at our family camp may walk or drive one mile to children's paradise: our community pond (see Entertainment section above).

Attractions of the area include: The Monastery of Christ in the Desert, the Continental Divide Trail, Echo Amphitheater, Ghost Ranch's paleontology museum, Abiquiu Lake where one may swim and fish, the Santo Tomas de Abiquiu Catholic Native American Indian Mission, and the Dar al-Islam mosque at Abiquiu.

One may take a one-hour tour of Ms. O'Keeffe's house in Abiquiu through the Georgia O'Keeffe Foundation. There is also the Abiquiu Inn with a café and gift store. A day's outing may include lunch at Rancho de Chimayó Restaurante, a visit to the world-famous El Santuario de Chimayo, and a stop at the weaving shops of the Ortega and Trujillo families. Dar al-Islam is noteworthy for, among other things, the only vaulted ceiling made from adobe brick in the United States.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 1977

About the owner: Elizabeth is originally from the San Francisco Bay Area. Andrew is from Grand Rapids Michigan. In 1977 we bought the homestead complete with cows. We grew specialty organic produce for restaurants in Santa Fe, Taos, and Albuquerque for fifteen years. David is from the Los Angeles area. He came to the ranch in 2002. He is our caretaker, and webmaster. The ranch is featured in many magazines, such as Martha Stewart, Better Homes and Gardens, Sunset, Gourmet, Saveur, Country Home, Bon Appetit, Wine Spectator, Horticulture, Countryside, Country Living Gardener, Santa Fe Wine and Chile Fiesta, Rocky Mountain Gardening, New Mexico, The Santa Fean, Santa Fe Reporter, The Good Cook, Exotic Beans, Southwest Passages, Fine Cooking, Denver Post, Los Angeles Times, and New York Times. One of us will check you in and out. If you need anything during your stay, feel free to ask any one of us.

Why the Owner Chose Abiquiu:
We chose this ranch because the beauty and the seclusion of this canyon is unique; it is like having our own mini Grand Canyon--- the same Northern New Mexico beauty that awed and inspired the artist Georgia O'Keeffe.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Family Camp includes for your summer enjoyment a 1,000 gallon soaking pool that is continuously fed from a fresh water spring, and includes a table and chairs for use inside the pool. The overflow from the tank attracts a many species of birds, which makes the pool area a bird watcher's dream. The pool is nestled inside an earthen and rock 1900s homestead open-air water storage tank. You may build a fire in the fire pit bowl provided here. Mosquitoes are not a problem in Gallina Canyon. With a spectacular view during the day and awe-inspiring panorama of stars at night, the pool area is a great place to enjoy the sights and sound of the canyon. Bring a star map and toast marshmallows we provide over the fire pit bowl, then lay back in the provided 'gravity chairs' and watch for meteors streaking across the velvet black sky. The glamping cabin is the perfect wilderness experience for two families to camp together , corporate get-together, and group camping: please email if you are looking for a group camp site.
