“Charming, relaxed, and delightfully authentic B&B!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014

We stayed at Rancho Gallina with our two kids, and we loved every moment. Our kids explored the arroyo and gaped at the solar array. Our son checked the meter everyday to see how much energy we were saving while staying at our "eco-retreat." But don't think we didn't have our creature comforts! Our casita was bright and airy; the shower our personal spa; and the hot tub a soothing retreat. Everyday the kids looked forward to soaking while staring at the stars. The courtyard was so relaxing I'm surprised we were able to rouse ourselves to explore nearby trails and visit Santa Fe. Mitch and Leslie were wonderful. They are the owners and sole employees, and their relaxed yet hard working vibe shined through. We thoroughly appreciated their old-school hospitality. We're definitely coming back!

Room Tip: We loved the comfort and quiet of our casita. It provided ample space for kids. We got to peak at th...

Thanks so much for your visit! We love that your kids could learn about green energy while on vacation. And that they could see a million stars from a solar powered hot tub. Hope you return soon!

Rancho Gallina is a funky place, really too expensive for what it is. Yes, Leslie and Mitch are great people, and I'm sure that some day this place will be fixed up to the point where they want it to be. The main room where we stayed felt like the converted garage that it is. The grounds are very weedy and the cedar tub is slimy. Leslie and Mitch seem to be on vacation, and a bit inconvenienced to have guests come and stay. They had plans on the afternoon we went to stay, so they asked us to arrive before 4:30 so that they could be there to show us the room. Give them a try, but be prepared for an experience something like you would find at a youth hostel.

Room Tip: Ask to see the room first.

Green Features: At Rancho Gallina, you may be shamed if you "generate" any garbage (Leslie's words).

Sue, as we expressed at the end of your visit, we are sorry you were disappointed in your stay. In response to your concerns we did give you a significant discount. A two room suite is a luxury in Santa Fe, and we make clear on our web site that the bedroom in the suite you stayed in is lovely while the adjacent art studio is a wonderful living area, providing comfortable sleeping for overflow guests or kids. Our prices reflect the cost of operating a truly green, family run business that serves our guests high quality, local, organic meals, and are in keeping with non-chain, locally owned inns and B&Bs in the area.

Leslie and Mitch are both such wonderful people! They will go out of their way to help and are very knowledgeable about the area, giving you a chance to explore on your own. The accommodations are very comfortable. You can use their grills to cook your own meals, and sit under the starry skies or under the canopy in the courtyard -- no matter where you sit, you will be comfortable like a home-away-from-home! We loved it so much we are going back this weekend (2nd long weekend in a month - what a treat!!). The property has so much to offer and knowing it is "Eco-friendly" makes it an easy decision for us to stay - solar, geothermal, organic foodstuffs...it just can't be beat!!!

Rancho Gallina is a fantastic and unique place to stay. Our room was gorgeous, it was filled with fantastic details like vintage hand-made doors. The high-vaulted ceiling kept us cool night and day. The court yard and relaxing places at this place are unforgettable. I will the never forget the stars and the family of owls we saw. Seriously, this place is one of a kind. Stay here!

I hated to leave after a lovely 4 days at Rancho Gallina. The place manages to combine comfort, charm and character in an authentic and beautiful ranch setting. It was a jumping off point for adventure - local hiking, bird watching, or browsing shops and museums in Sante Fe - or for reading in the hammock or star gazing from the hot tub. I will be back!

Green Features: The Ranch has solar panels, a rain capture cistern and composting as part of its commitment to the environment. They also purchase food as locally as possible.

Mitch and Leslie of Rancho Gallina were great hosts for our Board Retreat. The facilities and services are excellent and the surroundings connect you to the Land of Enchantment. Looking forward to next visit. If you like being in the mist of nature and enjoying its abundance this is the place.

I took our organization's 12-person Board to Rancho Gallina for a retreat and it was just amazing. We've gone to many locations to meet but this was the best by far. I am convinced that the peacefulness of the space and the wonderful hosting contributed to the great visionary thinking we experienced at this retreat and the bonding between us. The rooms were beautiful and took me into the Southwest feel and the food was out of this world in that it was both delicious and healthy as well as served in the best of ways. We loved the hot tub, the multiple lovely places to sit outside in the shade, the hammock, and just sitting outside to look at the stars. Several of our Board members stayed later just to enjoy. The owners, Leslie and Mitch, were so easy to work with to plan our retreat and they have just the right presence. While I was there for work I also felt rested and restored by just being in this peaceful, beautiful space. I would definitively hold another meeting here and want to come back myself for a little pure R&R.
