    Property description
    Holiday Rental House – 
    1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 2
    Our Days Available calendars are updated every morning.

    Remote Casita resides deep within the heart of the Chama Wilderness (the only privately-owned property in the area). Remote Casita, located on the site of an early 1900s homestead, is one of three vacation rentals we have in the canyon, with Three Pines Family Camp (exclusively designed for children and dogs) three miles away, and Ranch Casita four miles away. Remote Casita offers a more primitive wilderness experience than Ranch Casita; continuing up the canyon from Remote Casita you will find unparalleled solitude (see pictures).

    Gallina Canyon Ranch has been featured in many national and regional magazines, including New Mexico magazine, The Santa Fean, Better Homes and Gardens, Sunset, and Martha Stewart Living.

    Additional Location Information
    Our rental Casitas are the only rentals within 20 miles of the Chama Wilderness. From Highway 84 you turn on to FS Road 151. Eight miles down the road is the bridge you will open and cross. Our ranch is another 8 miles from the bridge. If your vehicle has exceptionally low clearance we will meet you at the bridge and bring you in our truck to your Casita. (Example: Scion, Mini Cooper, Prius)

    The Casita is nestled against a red sandstone cliff, with a spectacular view of the southern mesa rising more than 1000 feet above the canyon floor. A short distance from Casita the multi-layered cliffs plunge under a fault line to form the breathtaking Alameda Canyon rift.

We stayed at the remote casita in August- with our two dogs. It was the best place I've ever stayed in my life. It is 4 miles from the remote Gallina ranch. You usually get there by the owners' pickup, but it had rained heavily and we had to go in by horse. No electricity, no cell phone reception. You don't see anyone until they come back to collect you. It is a one-room cabin, with a queen-sized bed and a twin daybed on the porch. (We had our 12-year-old daughter with us. This really is a 2-person place, and we discussed this with the owners. We were willing to use the daybed--it is chilly at night, but the stars are amazing.) There is a gas stovetop inside and a gas grill outside, gas fridge, kerosene lamp, solar bag shower, outhouse.(The other review here for the ranch casita is less rustic, I think, and at the ranch. I didn't see it, but I'm sure it is nice. There is also a popup trailer site.) The little casita is so lovely. The road to the ranch is rough--they can pick you up at...

I once read a letter in Outdoor Magazine where the person said basically, "Thanks for nothing. Ever since you wrote an article on one of my favorite places, now everyone knows about it, and it is always busy!" That is the way I feel about Gallina Canyon Ranch. I want to help Elizabeth and Andrew as much as possible, but we will definitely be back and I want it to still be available. We are very good at finding out of the way, off the beaten path places to stay, and as we get older are back country camping less, but are still in search of the remote experience. Starting in Abiquiu, which is pretty much remote, you drive out of town a ways, turn onto a dirt road and descend into the Chama River Canyon Wilderness Area, cross the river and drive up into the Gallina River Canyon. The drive itself is simply spectacular. It is on dirt roads through Georgia O'Keefe territory. The Ranch Casita is a stucco and log structure, with incredible views of the red cliffs up and down the... more
