About Stanley Crawford
Visitors wishing to learn more about Northern New Mexico can consult a rich library of books about the area, including my own nonfiction works, particularly A GARLIC TESTAMENT: SEASONS ON A SMALL NEW MEXICO FARM. --Stan Crawford
Stanley Crawford purchased this Cottage in 1971
Why Stanley Crawford chose Embudo
We bought this beautiful piece of empty land in 1971. It's down the most beautiful lane in Northern New Mexico, bordered the Rio Embudo on the south, and an irrigation ditch and BLM land on the north.
What makes this Cottage unique
Wonder views of the Sangre de Cristo Range, closeness of the river, the quiet (the lane is dead end), sunny days, cool nights, good south facing exposure in the winter: we built both the guest house and our own house to take advantage of these features.

Smsll Farm Life
If you look for Luxury you at the wrong place. If you are a romantic and Nature Lover you will love the place
Quiet and hot
The hot sun in July overheats the upstairs. Otherwise, the pleasant and rustic charm together with the host’s hospitality made our stay enjoyable. Brought home lots of wonderful garlic!!
Great property with a few issuea
This property is in a nice serene place where you can hear the river, watch beautiful sunsets & feel very safe. There was an unusually high population of biting “no-seeum” bugs during my visit. Due to screens that did not fit properly there were a lot of them inside the property resulting in a great number of bites. In my correspondence with the owner; he stated he would make an effort remedy the screens. The other issue for me was a spiral staircase to the living & kitchen areas which is not mentioned in the property description. For people with no mobility issues this is not an issue. There is an extremely sturdy railing but if you have problems negotiating stairs this property would not be a good choice. Overall I think this property is well equipped, serene, a good value and the owner is very friendly.
Old World Charm
Yes, Old World Charm fits well. It is pretty unique in many respects, but has all the needed amenities. It is also located in an obscure and out-of-the-way place in Northern NM, and don't bother trying to use your GPS--won't help at all. I enjoyed my visit there, and found Stanley Crawford to be a very pleasant host. If you're not able to climb stairs, don't try this facility--the spiral staircase to the second floor is not especially easy to negotiate.
My partner and I came for a quick trip to New Mexico and we wished we could have extended our stay with how much we loved it. We hope to come back for a longer visit.
The Tower Guest House at Crawfords Garlic Farm is located in the Embudo Valley, in the foothills of the Sangre de Cristo Range, a mile and a half from the center of the traditional Hispanic village of Dixon. Dixon is known for its arts and crafts, and is a good base from which to explore nearby rivers and canyons such as the Rio Grande Gorge. Taos is 25 miles to the north, Santa Fe 50 miles south; both are major cultural and artistic centers. The region is known for its Indian Pueblos and ruins, all within easy driving distance.
