The casita is a cute little house in a gorgeous region of New Mexico. It's about the size of a small bedroom and very homey. We got in pretty late and didn't get a chance to look around, so in the morning we woke up to find a lovely small farm with chickens, horses, rabbits, dogs, and a cat. Samantha and her husband were very friendly and showed us around the farm, including to hold the baby bunnies! They gave us a lot of recommendations for the area - they know the area, which has a lot of history and even more nature, very well.

The Desert Farm Casita is such a unique way to experience a night in New Mexico.
As we pulled up to the pink, adobe house we instantly were greeted by the hosts' friendly farm animals. Soon after, Samantha and her husband Kyle, got home from work and could not have been any more welcoming and helpful.

The casita, a separate 1-room guest house, is cozy and perfect for a few night's stay. Inside is a queen bed, clean bathroom, wood stove, and plenty of brochures to get familiar with the surrounding areas. There is also more than enough room on the property to set up tents. Samantha and Kyle provide plenty of firewood to have a fire inside on the casita's wood stove or on the outside fire ring.

The following morning Kyle was nice enough to introduce us to the animals, let us feed them, and give us a rundown of their land. From the 360 degree view of surrounding mountains to the genuine hosts, I could not recommend staying a night at the Desert Farm Casita enough!

Samantha and Kyle were wonderful hosts, especially given our last minute booking. They provided everything we needed and more. The wood burning stove kept the room cozy and warm. We enjoyed a wake up call from the roosters and were able to enjoy the sunrise from bed. We’d recommend this cozy little spot to anyone in the area and we’d love to return in the future!

We had a wonderful time at Javelina Range with Samantha and Kyle. Everything was just as described and they provided everything we needed and more. They introduced us to all the wonderful animals and even were accommodating enough to allow our dog to stay and play with their dogs as well. They also had lots of information we needed for hiking trails and such. It was awesome!

What an awesome farm experience! Sam and Kyle were lovely hosts and the place was perfect for our little getaway. This is the perfect place for kids as our boys loved all of the animals and Sam and Kyle were so kind in showing them the animals and helping them experience it properly. We are going to go back!!!

Samantha and Kyle are fantastic hosts. They were incredibly welcoming and made it clear to us that we could ask for anything. The ranch is beautiful. You can sit in bed and watch the sunrise. This is great place to stay to enjoy the natural beauty in that part of New Mexico.

This little casita is private and secure. It’s heated by a somewhat finicky wood stove that once beguiled is Very eager to keep you warm! (My hosts were generous enough to not accept payment for their firewood And started the first fire for me!) The bed is very comfortable and well appointed. The areas were all as clean as you’d expect a well cared for rustic property to be. My hosts were both friendly and well informed but willing to respect space and privacy. (They provided amazing homemade bread on my arrival!) Only slight issue was WiFi was listed in ad but when I inquired was told it was not accessible at casita, not a huge deal as excellent Verizon coverage. The bathroom is as listed a half bath with plenty of hot water but no tub or shower.
