Heading out of Oklahoma via the panhandle, we were about 4hrs behind our schedule. Originally heading for Taos, we found just enough data service to find Casa Del Gavilan in Cimmaron. Honestly, having driven through Cimmaron numerous times (keyword=through) I wasn't expecting much. We called Jo, the innkeeper, to make our reservation and get directions, and headed west again.

Years ago a bunch of rich guys owned all the land in this beautiful valley. One of them gave a huge tract of land to the Boy Scouts, which became the Philmont Scout Ranch. Another one built this wonderful home which is now a B&B. If you're looking to reconnect with the 14 year old in you who came here... More

I loved being here where the only sounds are birds, wind, rain, or the occasional jet passing way overhead. It does need a make-over on some of the exterior walls. In addition, our room (the cottage, which wasn't really a cottage) was awfully dim, but I glimpsed a couple of the other rooms and they looked spacious and lovely. So... More

This 100-year-old grand ranch house makes a great bed-and-breakfast. The setting, surrounded by the Philmont National Boy Scout Ranch, brought back memories for me of being there with my parents and as a scout decades ago. The houise is set close to the looming Tooth of Time outcropping, which you can gaze at from a seating area at the back.... More

I would highly recommend if your staying in the Cimarron, NM area that you consider the Casa del Gavilan if you like a Bed & Breakfast. This was an amazing B&B in a wonderful location with great views of the mountains and the "Tooth of Time". Jo, our host fixed a fantastic breakfast and made sure we had a great... More

We stayed here in 2005 with our 3 kids, who were quite small then. We had a giant room for all of us. The staff fixed us amazing breakfasts every morning. Loved this B&B. My kids loved driving through Philmont Boy Scout Ranch and seeing all of the deer and buffalo everyday. It was amazing. I highly recommend this B&B.... More

The Casa was a wonderful getaway on our latest trip to New Mexico. The sunrises and sunsets were breathtaking and we enjoyed relaxing in the courtyard among the flowers and hummingbird moths. Our room was recently repainted and the original cottonwood of the vigas was renewed. The mixture of history and natural beauty was so unusual and makes this a... More

We absolutely loved the Casa del Gavilan. The hosts, Joe and Noelle, make this inn an even more special place. The locale is magnificent....set far back from a country road, there are incredible views from all directions. We were able to see antelope on the property, plus buffalo, deer, and even a small bear within driving distance of the inn.... More

Just got back from the Casa, this historic Inn is truly wonderful. The furniture, the food, the area around the casa....absolutely the best. The bed and bath in the Webster room was comfortable, books, magazines. There is an herb garden in the central garden area with three very funny outdoor cats. There is a computer for guests to use.

What a delightful experience! The hospitality was great and we had an amazingly delicious three course breakfast. The setting was classic New Mexico high desert. We'll be returning to this jewel of a B&B!
