Casa Encantada
Get ready for an experience, not a place to spend the night. Beautifully decorated with magical touches of artistic flair everywhere, prepare to be enchanted!
Casa Encantada is located in the sleepy village of Magdalena, gateway to the stars. Deep black night skies show the star’s infinite glow. Close to the VLA, Bosque Del Apache, and so much BLM land for hiking and exploring New Mexico’s hidden beauty, you will want to stay for more than a day to see it all!

Casa Encantada was an amazing place to stay and Gwen is certainly a super host! We loved enjoying the back and front yards, playing with Charlee and Buddah, and watching the beautiful skies in Magdalena. NM and the genuine hospitality never disappoints. We will be back!

Gwen's home is a delight. One night was not enough for us and Gwen graciously let us stay a second. It is a charming, quirky, quiet oasis with an amazing view of the stars!

What a gorgeous little home! It’s comfortable, full of New Mexico style, stocked with all the necessities and perfectly located for both relaxation and exploration of the area. Gwen was very communicative, and welcoming. Best Airbnb experience possible!
