No, it is not the Four Seasons. Yes, it's a little worn around the edges. Yes, it's a few minutes outside of mobbed Santa Fe. Yes, it has older (and more commodious) rooms. No, the bathrooms are not "state-of-the-art"... but these are all reasons my family and I love this place! This was our fifth or sixth stay here in... More

I have to say, one of best relaxing experiences I've ever had. Being a resort in a resort city, of course it is busy in July. Facilities and amenities are great. We did everything from spa to horseback riding to just hanging at the pool. Most impressive is the caring and engaged staff. And it starts at the top. We... More

I stayed at Bishop's Lodge with my granddaughter. We had one bedroom, 2 beds, bath and a sitting room. The furnishings were in need of renovations. The rug was threadbare and the furnishings were worn. The toiletries were not replenished daily. We had to request that the soap be replenished daily and we requested more towels. The housekeeping was sloppy.... More

We stayed at the Bishop's Lodge because no other room was available on Friday, July 11, 2014 during the International Folk Festival. It was an experience we will never forget, but we wouldn't want to repeat it. We'd rather be staying in the Plaza area. The Bishop's Lodge was remote and not near any shop, attraction, or restaurant. The room... More

We stayed at Bishop's Lodge so we could attend the fabulous Flamenco dinner show at El Farol. Four of us stayed in a Traditional Junior Suite and it was a beautiful space with high ceilings, incredible vigas, and tasteful furnishings. The surroundings are stunning, and I recommend visiting during July and August when the rains have left a lovely carpet... More

I took our family on vacation at Bishop's Lodge for four nights and five days last week. My memory of Bishop's Lodge has been sweet for many years – my family took us when I was 10 years old for our first ski trip... It seemed like a magical place. Unfortunately, our arrival was quite disappointing due to a heavy... More

We have stayed at Bishop's Lodge many times. It is a beautiful property with great amenities. We took a fabulous four hour horseback ride this year. The service can be spotty, and the beautiful pool can get noisy at mid-day -- but it is simply a pleasure to sit on a porch at your room and enjoy the view. The... More

Frankly, I was concerned ahead of time to read so many negative reviews of the Bishop's Lodge Ranch on Tripadvisor that, when I first arrived and was shown to 189 Juniper Lodges, I thought my worst fears had come true. But when Arias opened the door for me, I was pleasantly surprised to find an enormous room, well furnished, with... More

The room, grounds and staff were lovely. A magical place to celebrate my friends 50th Birthday. One of the highlights of our stay was the group drumming circle with Jade. A wonderful time was had by all. Jade is a loving soul who speaks from the heart. You won't be disappointed. A session with Jade will complete your stay here.

This hotel is way over-rated. Our stay there was annoying from the beginning to the end. We called and booked a room. When we showed up, the hotel had booked the wrong date. They said they'd change it, but when we arrived back home we realized we were charged for two nights. The horse ride was good, but someone changed... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
In August of 1851, a Frenchman, Jean Baptiste Lamy, arrived in the NM Territory as the first Bishop of Santa Fe. Here he built a private retreat; his chapel still stands today, now on the national register of historic places. After Lamy's Death, the land was acquired by the Pulitzer publishing family as a private vacation retreat. In 1917, the Thorpe family from Denver fell in love with these pristine acres, bought the property and developed the first resort in the state. Today Bishop's Lodge comprises 15 lodges for a total of 110 rooms ranging in sizes from 250 sq feet to 450, not to mention a 2000 sq foot Presidential Suite. Many of our rooms feature fireplaces and the majority all have outdoor access to patios, lawns or balconies. Our ShaNah Spa and Wellness Center which opened up in June of 2002 is a sanctuary where one can take time out to be nurtured by Mother Nature, guided by ancient wisdon and touched by angels. The experience may change your life. Other activities are abundant such as: trap/skeet shooting (offered to groups of 10 or monmre roomnights), horseback, pony trail rides, hiking, mountain biking, fitness center, excercise studio, outdoor pool, whirlpool and tennis to mention a few. Bishop's Lodge is located just 3 miles from the Historic Santa Fe Plaza. Complimentary shuttle service is provided by the lodge at scheduled times daily. ... more   less
