Dogs are welcome at Remote Casita!

Remote Wilderness Casita is located within the only twenty mile long gated box canyon in the Chama Wilderness at the end of a 15 mile long adventurous dirt road. The rental includes one large room with kitchen, dining area, and queen size bed. There is a large covered porch with two twin beds, BBQ, table, chairs.

The rental is located on the site of an early 1900s homestead and is one of three vacation rentals we have in the canyon, with Ranch Wilderness Casita and Anasazi Wilderness Glamping Cabin. We also have a Condo for rent in Historic Downtown Santa fe.

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.
