I spent my youth in an old adobe house on Pueblo Road, and staying at the Mabel Dodge Lujan House brought back all those wonderful memories. I remember seeing the second story windows from a distance and always wondered who lived there. The rooms are each unique (I've stayed in 3 different rooms)named for the famous (and infamous) visitors drawn... More

Mabel Dodge Luhan house is conveniently located just a short walk to the plaza in the heart of Taos. This is a retreatants dream place. Quiet, beautiful surroundings, great food, friendly, supportive staff, no TV, lots of spaces for sitting/writing/resting in a historic, inspiring environment where creativity has been valued since it's inception. I've been there many times over the... More

First off it is best to point out that Mabel's place is not a Hilton with all the luxury that entails. There are no phones, TV's or WI-FI in the rooms. (WI-FI is available in the common rooms.) What makes Mabel's special is its history, graceful furnishings, and peaceful setting on the outskirts of Taos, The view out the back... More

The environment is truly amazing & beautiful. The house and surroundings are filled with history, the staff is friendly & helpful, the food is delicious and beautifully presented. The house maintains the integrity of what was so long ago. This is a beautiful environment to see and spend some quiet time.

You have to sleep here! First of all is secluded in a good sense: they have several properties and the cheapest rooms are in a separate building which is both very quiet, charming and romantic. The main house is just outstanding, filled with gorgeous furniture and beautiful finishing. But the cherry on the cake was the home baked breakfast -... More

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....

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!
