Rancho Gallina is the genuine article. I've been traveling to Santa Fe and various locales across New Mexico for 30+ years...always searching for that iconic, romantic getaway location. Mitch and Leslie have created a place that is everything a true aficionado of the dessert southwest is looking for. The ranch is set apart from the city among the sage brush but is within a 20 minute drive of Santa Fe....or head the other direction and your in the funky little towns of the Turquoise Trail. The rooms are comfortable and private with adjoining common spaces that welcome you and your book to hang out through the lazy afternoons. We've been truly stunned by their phenomenal culinary expertise as well, having enjoyed two wonderful wedding feasts (ours and that of friends) at their table. We can't wait to return and in fact, between their eco-conscious facilities and their wonderful location I don't see us staying any place else when we're near Santa Fe.
