"The Canons Cabin was clean and well-appointed, with gracious hosts, and absolutely beautiful surroundings. We appreciated the little homey touches, such as nice quilts and interesting artwork on the walls. Already looking for dates for our next visit. As seasoned NM travelers, we were looking to be off the beaten path, but within comfortable driving distance (an hour, or so) of some of the more popular Northern New Mexico spots, in case we wanted dinner in Chimayo or to wander the plaza in Santa Fe. This little cabin fit the bill perfectly. We drove the beautiful forest roads north of Gallina, headed up to the Ghost Ranch area and explored the Echo Amphitheater, attended feast day dances at the Pueblo Ohkay Owinge (highlight of the trip by far), ate a pretty good pizza from Mamacita's, devoured delicious green chile burgers at Papa Joe's in Gallina, had wonderful meals at La Cocina in Espanola, Rancho de Chimayo, and the Plaza Cafe in Santa Fe. We also visited Napoleon Garcia, the Storyteller, on the Abiquiu plaza, and spent our early mornings and sunsets sitting on the porch of the cabin, overlooking the quiet little village and beautiful scenery. A wonderful visit. Thank you Gracie and Felix!"

We plan on spending more time in that magical spot
"Wow. We can not recommend a stay at Gallina Canyon Ranch enough. If you're dreaming of a peaceful retreat in which you can just simply soak up the beauty of the Earth, then this is your place. My husband and I stayed at the Wilderness Ranch Casita for two nights and found it to be a comfortable refuge after a long day of hiking the property. We ate our meals on the porch-with-a-view and chuckled at the begging kitties. The kitchen was fully-stocked with everything we could need. Fabulous tasting water and no problems with the hot water in the shower. The composting toilet will surely be a new experience to most but we both agreed that it was easy and amazingly 100% odor-free.
My favorite part of the home was the beautiful artwork and great library to peruse. Oh and the sleeping deck! Sadly, we were too tired at night to even make our way up there but SO did enjoy having our morning coffee there amongst the hundreds of curious hummingbirds. When we return (& we will be returning), we plan on spending more time in that magical spot.
We hiked into the Anasazi cabin and rested there a bit in its cool hammock. We thought it would be a great place to stay.... more like glamping than the casita. The outdoor shower there is ridiculously cool with its unbelievable views. And a fun swimming spot is right at that site, as well. We continued on hiking and made it all the way to the Remote Cabin 4 miles in, crossing the Gallina riverbed 13 times. But before reaching that, we found flags that led off-trail to fascinating petroglyphs carved into the canyon wall. To see them up close & personal, and to feel like we'd discovered them ourselves was one of my favorite memories from that day.
The Remote Cabin looks like something out of a movie. Truly remote & would be a wonderful place to completely relax, rest, and ponder life for a while. I want to mention the drive into the ranch. It indeed took us over an hour to travel the 15-16 miles back. While absolutely breathtaking and an adventure indeed, it can be sketchy (narrow, rocky or rutted) in places. We were certainly thankful that the road was nice & dry for us.
I do know that David / Andrew will come pick you up if the conditions for driving are too dangerous for the type of car you're driving. We were in a small convertible and besides some awful-sounding times when rocks would bash against the underside, the drive was fine. Also, bring all the groceries you'll need because I promise you will not want to drive out"

"My wife and I (54 and 62 respectively) spent 3 glorious nights at the casita - would that it had been longer. The cabin is delightfully situated, intimate yet open, and very well appointed. There are queen beds inside and out - we slept out to see the stars. Our host, David (a delightful man), couldn't have been more welcoming. He took us around the garden, ate raspberries off the bush with us, provided eggs and vegetables, and gave us a thorough and storied orientation. We can't recommend this experience highly enough."
