My husband, two dogs and I stayed in one of the charming guest houses at Casa Gallina for the Christmas holidays. We felt right at home immediately! Richard, the owner, warmly greeted us with wine, cheese, fresh eggs and baked goods upon our arrival. What a wonderful host! The casita was cozy and well-appointed, with a fireplace, kitchen and great... More

My family stayed in two casitas and thoroughly enjoyed our time at Casa Gallina. The houses are comfortable, colorful and inviting. The host, Richard S., has been able to achieve a nice balance between the aesthetically beautiful and the rustic charm so many of us find calming and relaxing. Richard is a human Wikipedia for Taos, making him a valuable... More

This is an amazing bed & breakfast. I have never been to such a well-run, beautiful, and relaxing place during my travels. It is a perfect place to stay while enjoying Taos, whether you are seeing art, skiing, doing day hikes or just relaxing. Were met with a bottle of wine, a warm welcome, and an amazing house of our...

Could stay here for the rest of my life. Richard is a gracious and warm host, with a remarkable eye for homemaking. He has created something truly special here, a sight to behold in and of itself. Also, Farm fresh eggs every morning from feathery neighbors across the lawn.

It was love at first sight for us. After finding our way there in the dark, it felt like a welcome home to walk into our casita - complete with firewood, candles, a bottle of wine, fresh eggs, fresh coffee & tea, and a beautiful spread of tiny dishes of fresh snacks on the antique wooden table, with colorful fabrics...

We were so enchanted with Casa Gallina. We arrived very late the first night but our host, Richard, had left the casita warm and filled with yummy snacks. The casita was adorable, every little detail was something new to marvel at. The back yard was filled with chickens so we had fresh eggs for breakfast and later that afternoon Richard... More

My husband and I spent five days at Casa Gallina in October, 2013. He had been there before we were married, but words and pictures could not describe how beautiful it is. Our casita was warm and welcoming, and we appreciated the lovely late afternoon spread that Richard provided. This was the studio casita which was perfect for two people.... More

Richard Spera has created a restorative oasis in the desert! Casa Gallina, a stone's throw from Taos Mountain, is an enchanted artisan inn where detail, design, charm, and generosity intersect. Upon arrival, I walked into the stunning "Leghorn" casita greeted by pinon wood perfectly arranged in the fireplace, a bottle of red wine, fresh eggs (thanks to the chickens on... More

I loved this place and it's wonderful host Richard. We'd shared our two bedroom split with our sinister and brother in law in June 2013 on a stop and go trip that started in Albuquerque, and made stops in sante fe, Taos and then on to Durango for our daughters wedding. What a lovely setting ..... I could have sated... More

Mid-September 2013, my birthday and my wife asks where would I like to spend it. We are on our first road trip in 30 years, somewhere between the Grand Canyon South Rim and Tulsa: I say Taos, thinking I always wanted to see that hard ball mountain where the powder snow was so good. She hears, "Taos, artists' community." A... More
