This is a beautiful, historic, rustic, calming place. It's best enjoyed if you know a little history of Mabel Dodge Luhan and her myriad of well known guests. The rooms in the historic house are all different and totally charming (and don't forget rustic). The meals are divine, healthy and well prepared. Walk the grounds and walk to downtown Taos.... More

I attended a writer's retreat here and the service and accommodations were generous and supportive. The Lodge's accommodations were very comfortable and the meals were the best I have ever had on retreat. Melody the executive chef is brilliant and all her assistants in the kitchen are gems. Mabel Dodge made a spectacular retreat experience that much more superb!

This is a wonderful placr to stay to get a feel for parts of the more recent history of Taos. The hose has portions that are over 200 ytears old with the balance being added in the 1920's, but all of it makes for unified, whole and an amazing experience. No two doors, for example, are quite alike; walls are... More

Mabel Dodge came out from NYC a century ago and never left. She collected artists, including D.H.Lawrence, Georgia O'Keefe, Edward Stieglitz, Ansel Adams....and Willa Cather, whose room we stayed in. Mabel Dodge fell in love with Tony Luhan, a member of Taos Nation, I believe, who built the rambling adobe-style place. Its colorful history continued when Dennis Hopper bought it... More

A beautiful Taos adobe inside and out makes for a truly unique experience. The manager was so kind and attentive. Delicious homemade cookies and wide of drinks made a homey atmosphere. Great breakfast!

We had a bit of trouble finding this place, but it was so worth it! The history of the house is fascinating. Our room was the Robinson Jeffers. Beautiful room. It was very comfortable in May, but might get a little warm during the summer months - not sure if there is A/C. Breakfast was scrumptious!

This is a place to come for respite and personal reflection, as well as interacting with the other guests from near and far. Upon entering the Mabel Dodge you can just imaging the salon conversations from the past. We stayed in the solarium on the week of Easter. Ascending the stairs can be a bit tricky but once on top,...

I booked the solarium and was really excited about staying here. The atmosphere is so beautiful and everything inside is really charming. The problem is there's no real privacy. You can hear everything your neighbors say and do and they can hear you too. As a private person, I found the stay to be uncomfortable. Too bad, they get a... More

The Mabel Dodge Luhan House is truly a unique and glorious experience. It's steeped in history, it was the site of salons for the likes of Aldous Huxley, D.H. Lawrence, Carl Jung, Martha Graham, Georgia O'Keefe, and many, many more, and it abuts land of the Taos Pueblo. I stayed in the Solarium or Eagle's Nest. Wow! Windows on all... More

This is a place built on history. I came hear on a personal retreat to find some center within a hectic lifestyle, I found an essence of Taos. Backed up directly to Indian land and with a back story out of movies it is a blessing to stay here. If you are looking to be pampered or coddled, this is... More
