About a mile south of the Boy Scout Ranch on Hwy 21. I would call it ‘secluded’ instead of remote but it’s a beautiful place. One can sense the history in the surroundings but is appropriately updated and well maintained. The care and hospitality of...More

When you have to stay near Raton, NM, there aren't a lot of great options. We were thrilled when we found this unique, out of the way, historic inn nestled in the Sangre de Cristo mountains. Great place to stay!

About
Description
Nestled in the foothills of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains near Cimarron, New Mexico, is the historic inn, Casa del Gavilan. A place of spirit--where hawk and eagle soar--this grand adobe villa was built about More 1912 for Jack and Gertrude Nairn, formerly of Hartford, Connecticut. When completed, artists and writers from far and wide came to enjoy the Nairns' elegant hospitality and to capture the majestic beauty that is New Mexico. With twelve-foot high ceilings, vigas, and eighteen-inch thick walls, Casa del Gavilan (House of the Hawk) is a showplace of Pueblo-revival architecture exhibiting artwork and sculptures by Frederick Remington, Charles Russell, Robert Redbird, and others.Completely surrounded by Philmont Scout Ranch, and a mile from Philmont's base camp, the Casa del Gavilan (also known as the Nairn Place) offers exceptional views of the Sangre de Cristo mountains, hiking trails, and the peace and tranquility so rare these days. The guest rooms all have private baths and a full breakfast is served daily. Less
