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 of green everywhere. The staff were gracious and arranged transportation for us to and from El Farol in the evening. We had a great driver who was courteous and fun. Breakfast in the morning was a bit overpriced for the quality of the food, but we enjoyed sitting outside on the balcony and the service was excellent. I highly recommend this for families, friends and travelers who want to stay outside of the bustle of Santa Fe.
- 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
