"We were so surprised by the cabin rental at Alpaca Barnhaus, they really did have everything needed to make our stay with them comfortable and cozy! Arriving later
than we expected, bur Mickey had a welcoming fire going for us, wonderful! Slept
each night soundly and woke up ready too go. Each window is like a picture when
you look out of them framing the pine and aspen trees. We were lucky to see the
trees changing color, so pretty.
The location was perfect for us, loved the drive to Los Alamos one day and spent the
next down at Jemez Springs. Great spots for history, eating and shopping. Before you
shop for gifts for family or a little something for yourself be sure to check the shop
above the alpaca barn!! Evelyn has gifts of every size and color, all displayed to show
the variety available.
The only problem we had was to run out of time for sightseeing in the area! Definitely
would love to revisit with Mickey and Evelyn and, of course, the alpacas!"

Authentic & beautifully appointed New Mexican retreat; great home base for exploration!
"A wonderful place from which to explore and appreciate the beauty and culture of northern New Mexico, this casita reflects the loving care of its owner. Julia is a thoughtful and considerate host. When my flight to Albuquerque was delayed 8 hours, I phoned Julia to tell her I'd be arriving after dark. To make sure I'd be able to find her place on a moonless night, she hung a string of electric lights at the entrance of the driveway. She emailed me to ask what I liked for breakfasts, before my arrival. Being able to cook and enjoy a real, leisurely breakfast each morning was a treat. If you're a coffee fan, Julia provides perfectly roasted regular and decaf beans which you freshly grind for a truly delicious cup of java. I also found beautiful, ripe tomatoes at a local roadside stand, which were deliciously complemented by fresh basil from Julia's vegetable garden.
It turns out that Nambe is right in the middle of all the sights I wanted to see: Taos, Rio Grande gorge, Espanola, Valle Caldera, Bandelier National Monument, local pueblos, Los Alamos, Santa Fe, SF Opera, and the "santuario" in Chimayo, (just 10 miles away). BTW, make sure you bring your camera. The mountains and sandstone formations of this area are stunning: a geologist's wonderland. It's also an area with some excellent restaurants, well known for authentic New Mexican cuisine.
Bottom line: A+! A great place to restore one's soul and convenient place to stay for any period of time. I've already recommended Julia's casita to friends and plan on returning in the future."

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"

"I was very pleased with my experience in this house. Everything worked properly, was very clean, well stocked, and comfortable. I was traveling alone and felt very safe; quiet neighborhood. The location was great and very easy to get to stores, restaurants, etc. If I return to Las Cruces, and plan to, I will definitely be staying here again if it is available. I had to change dates and owner was very cordial to work with me. I highly recommend this property."
