About Stanley Crawford
Visitors wishing to learn more about Northern New Mexico can consult a rich library of books about the area, including my own nonfiction works, particularly A GARLIC TESTAMENT: SEASONS ON A SMALL NEW MEXICO FARM. --Stan Crawford
Stanley Crawford purchased this Cottage in 1971
Why Stanley Crawford chose Embudo
We bought this beautiful piece of empty land in 1971. It's down the most beautiful lane in Northern New Mexico, bordered the Rio Embudo on the south, and an irrigation ditch and BLM land on the north.
What makes this Cottage unique
Wonder views of the Sangre de Cristo Range, closeness of the river, the quiet (the lane is dead end), sunny days, cool nights, good south facing exposure in the winter: we built both the guest house and our own house to take advantage of these features.

Cozy and Perfect!
This is a cozy property and was perfect for our needs. Thank you to the owners for their hospitality and flexibility.
Rustic and clean
Simple but charming lodging with great views of the garlic farm and surrounding mountains. The property is within walking distance (around a mile) from Dixon proper and a short drive from Taos and Sipapu ski resorts. Stan is a gracious and fascinating host and you should read at least one of his books before staying there to get a feel for the place. The adorable winding staircase up to the kitchen/living area may be a challenge for folks with mobility issues, but makes for a nice little warm-up before you get your morning coffee.
Too hot in the summer
100 degrees upstairs. Bed smells like sweat.
Smsll Farm Life
If you look for Luxury you at the wrong place. If you are a romantic and Nature Lover you will love the place
Quiet and hot
The hot sun in July overheats the upstairs. Otherwise, the pleasant and rustic charm together with the host’s hospitality made our stay enjoyable. Brought home lots of wonderful garlic!!
Great property with a few issuea
This property is in a nice serene place where you can hear the river, watch beautiful sunsets & feel very safe. There was an unusually high population of biting “no-seeum” bugs during my visit. Due to screens that did not fit properly there were a lot of them inside the property resulting in a great number of bites. In my correspondence with the owner; he stated he would make an effort remedy the screens. The other issue for me was a spiral staircase to the living & kitchen areas which is not mentioned in the property description. For people with no mobility issues this is not an issue. There is an extremely sturdy railing but if you have problems negotiating stairs this property would not be a good choice. Overall I think this property is well equipped, serene, a good value and the owner is very friendly.
The Tower Guest House at Crawfords Garlic Farm is located in the Embudo Valley, in the foothills of the Sangre de Cristo Range, a mile and a half from the center of the traditional Hispanic village of Dixon. Dixon is known for its arts and crafts, and is a good base from which to explore nearby rivers and canyons such as the Rio Grande Gorge. Taos is 25 miles to the north, Santa Fe 50 miles south; both are major cultural and artistic centers. The region is known for its Indian Pueblos and ruins, all within easy driving distance.
