The Willa Cather room was a lovely stay. The main house is a wonderful resource, such authentic New Mexico decor. History is everywhere, from the 1922 carved into the front door to the tiny arch-shaped hand-carved doors between each room. Need to stay a week next time. Breakfast was amazing, just amazing. Retreat-style meant modest pricing, twin beds, no hardship... More

Short 10 minute walk into town. We had lovely ground floor room with traditional furniture. Amazing family style breakfast - all delicious home cooked food and great to get the... More

High reviews for the Mabel Dodge Luhan Conference Center - for its location (Taos, New Mexico, at foot of mountains), it's historic character (the original adobe home and some furnishing of Mabel, her husband, and artists visiting NM for first time), and an outstanding kitchen staff. A true paradise for a writers' retreat. No in-room wifi, but is available in... More

This B&B/retreat site is not for those seeking Holiday Inn or better appointments in accommodations. Rather it continues to be a place where one can live comfortably and profitably in the past as it looks to the present and future. The comfortable rooms in the original structure are named for the artist-visitors who stayed there. Breakfasts are wonderful. Cookies, tea,... More

Beautiful, historic, storied hotel close to the plaza in Taos! Everything about it is cozy, lovely and magical. And the food is fantastic! I stayed for a week during a painting retreat in the Ansel Adams room, and got to check out many other rooms, including the Solarium at the top (with amazing, panoramic views of the landscape), Mabel's room...

We had a lovely day visit to the Mabel Dodge Luhan House. We had recently learned of her through a PBS Documentary on her life. We were greeted with a hearty welcome just as Mabel would have likely done. We were invited to roam the house and grounds and were offered coffee, tea, and homemade treats and chose the amazing...

Mabel Dodge Luhan was an important and pioneering figure in the art world, not just in Taos, but in New York City, Provincetown, MA, and abroad. She was instrumental in bringing modernist painters to Taos in 1917-19 when the original Taos School painters' popularity had begun to fade somewhat. My fiancee is in the international art business. With her interest... More

Historic house where Mabel Dodge Luhan held her salons which included D.H. Lawrence, Georgia O'Keefe, Ansel Adams and many other famous 20th Century writers and artists. The food was excellent, although you only get all meals when arranged by a group. I had a real sense of deja vu there. Staff and accommodations are pleasant. Taos is an incredibly beautiful... More

-We were told that during Mabel's lifetime, folks called Taos "Mabel Town." Rich & bossy, she gathered famous artists to her salon, many of whom escaped her willful ways as soon as they could, despite the comfort of the lodgings. -The public parts of this inn are charming, well worth a visit. Doorways of the original adobe structure that pre-dated... More
