I have enjoyed spending time at Bishop's Lodge several times in the past year. My daughter always begs to go too! The high points of your resort, that sets it apart from others in the area, is the family focus, historical entrenchment, and the mountain location at this unique area! It is so relaxing and really has helped me to reconnect with family and friends in our visits and stays at Bishop's Lodge. I have found that if I really want a luxurious location, I will pay a little bit more for the recently built villas, but staying in the more rustic lodge areas are also great, as we can save some money, and still enjoy the family time, hikes, pool, visit the horses and walk up the the historic chapel as well. I recommend this to people who prioritize relaxation with family and friends in a gorgeous, natural, rural, historic area, just miles from the center 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
