Articles and Reviews of the Casa del Gavilan

Washington Post Logo
Read Bill Whitman's story about the Casa del Gavilan in the Washington Post

"This sprawling adobe villa, built in 1910 on a broad hill overlooking Philmont and the mountains beyond, provides a quiet Southwest ranch-style experience.  The common areas have high ceilings with thick vigas and wooden floors, and the hallways are painted bright Southwestern blue and green.  The rooms lie around a central courtyard, a nice place to sit and relax in the cool evenings.  The rooms are spacious, with comfortably firm beds and plenty of antiques.  The bathrooms are medium-sized and maintain an old-style charm, with touches such as tiny white tile on the floors but with new fixtures.  The two-bedroom suite, which is housed in what's called the Guest House is good for families, though lower ceilings give it a slightly newer feel.  There isn't a television on the premises, but there is a hiking trail just off the courtyard.  Breakfast is served in a big, sunny dining room; you'll find such specialties as baked French toast with ham and fruit salad and a baked apple pancake served with sausage."  -Frommer's New Mexico - 5th Edition (click on book cover to purchase a copy of Frommer's New Mexico - 5th Edition)

"On the Santa Fe Trail and directly below the Tooth of Time, this adobe-style, early 1900s mansion (the name means "house of the hawk") on 225 acres is a romantic hideaway of the first order.  The original owner, industrialist J.J. Nairn, used to entertain artists and other creative types here.  The furnishings-artworks of various origins and Southwestern antiques-have been carefully selected.  You can enjoy breakfast in the dining room or out on the patio." -Fodor's 99 New Mexico (click on  book cover to purchase a copy of Fodor's New Mexico 1999)
