We have stayed here several times over the years and have enjoyed the beautiful grounds. On a recent stay we appreciate the 100 year old history of the property but, for whatever reason, it is apparent that there is a lack of reinvestment/renovation in the stewardship of this historic place. In the past, given the age of the property we overlooked some of the quirky features of the condition of the rooms. Currently it is just a lack of repair, poorly/crudely and inconsistent upkeep. We observed many deficiencies that can be inexpensively fixed but requires due diligence on the part of Management which by this evidence is lacking. From other comments and responses by Management no doubt there are beautiful features of the property, but the basic upkeep of the guest rooms can't be ignored much longer. Here's hoping that there are better times ahead for the Bishops Lodge as this historic property deserves the attention that will enable it to continue for its next hundred years.
- 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
