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"

The vacation rental was spotless.
I was very happy with the location.
I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental.
Overall, I recommend this vacation rental.
The home we rented, Harmony House, was perfect for our annual Susters Trip. It was beautifully decorated, absolutely charming and spotless. We had plenty of room for the five of us, plus everything we needed in the way of amenities. The setting was lovely and the location was within walking distance of downtown and all the shops. I particularly appreciated the personal service we received from Kokopelli Management. Raman and Bryan were exceptionally helpful. One of our best Sisters Trips!"

"It was everything the ad said it should be and was a perfect location for a trip to Taos. House was spotless, everything worked, easy walk to the Plaza and downtown. Easy back road out in both directions to avoid main street traffic if you are going out to do hiking (as my son and I did). We will definitely be back. Bedrooms (each with its own bathroom) on opposite sides of the kitchen/living area gave them both privacy"

"Can't wait to go back. Everything was wonderful. My daughter and I loved every minute we were there. She didn't even want to go out and eat. We cooked and ate on the patio. The view from the patio was incredible. Only minutes from the plaza in Santa Fe and not far from a lot of the wonderful sights in northern New Mexico. Already trying to plan my trip back for next year."
