About the Casa del Gavilan

The Casa del Gavilan was unaffected by the Ute Park Fire. Hwy 64 through Cimarron Canyon reopened.

After the Ute Park Fire Highway 64 thru Cimarron Canyon between Cimarron and Ute Park, Eagle Nest, and Taos is once again open.  All other highways into Cimarron remain open. All businesses and restaurants in Cimarron are open. 


We wish our friends and neighbors at Philmont Scout Ranch the very best in restoring the back country trails and facilities for the return of Scouts later in the summer.

More about the Casa . . .

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 1910-1912 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 early Pueblo-revival architecture featuring artwork and sculptures by Frederick Remington, Charles Russell, Robert Redbird, and others.


Surrounded by Philmont Scout Ranch, and a mile from Philmont's base camp, the Casa del Gavilan offers exceptional views of the Sangre de Cristo mountains, hiking trails, and the peace and tranquility so rare these days. All guest rooms have private baths, and a full breakfast is served daily. 


There are no televisions for guests' use at the Casa, nor are there telephones in the guest rooms. Wifi internet is available throughout most, but not all, of the Casa. The Casa del Gavilan is located in a very remote, rural setting. Most of our guests treasure the peace and quiet of the location, and the sense of tranquility in and around the Casa. If this is not what you are looking for, or if you would prefer an on-site bar or restaurant, we suggest you consider the St. James Hotel  for your stay in the Cimarron area. The Cimarron Inn and The Blue Dragonfly Bed and Breakfast are also good alternatives located in Cimarron closer to shopping and restaurants.
