When our fave hotel in Taos was sold to corporate chain and declined thereafter, we looked around and found this gem. Stayed here in February of 2012 and just thought to review it when planning our next Taos visit (TA site won't let me go that far back, but we found Casa Gallina on TA). Richard wasn't home when we arrived, but he'd left snacks, beverages, and a personal welcome note. We had corresponded with him leading up to our arrival, and his directions were perfect. When he saw that our curtains were opened the next morning, he knocked and greeted us with all the info needed PLUS some pastries and eggs. When Richard wasn't busy (rare), he showed us the chickens and his other casitas, which were even more impressive than ours. He puts his blood, sweat, tears, and his own labor into the art of hospitality. Our bungalow included full kitchen with basic cooking supplies and a few stock groceries, including the frequent delivery of fresh eggs. Upstairs: bedroom (queen), bathroom (spacious enough), and porch with a hammock (declined to use in cold February). Downstairs: living room with satellite tv, couch, fireplace, mini-desk, and kitchen with quaint table seating. Wi-fi worked better downstairs. Richard was kind enough to let us use the laundry machines two steps outside our door to wash our ski clothes before leaving (no charge). The location is not near the action of Taos, but we go to Taos to ski so Casa Gallina is fine for us. Clean, private, perfect for those wanting more conveniences than hotels.
