Just returned from another visit to Santa Fe and The Bishop's Lodge. I must admit that I am most partial to this place. We have stayed there as a family for over 20 years and expect that we will do so again next year.
We had a great time. While we take full advantage of what Santa Fe has to offer, it is great to come back to the lodge in the evening to have drinks in the lodge or on the deck. Unfortunately, we did not get to horseback ride or go skeet shooting this time. A quiet walk on the property in the evening is the best thing for the spirit. I love doing Taiji out by the pool and watching the sun rise. We tend to be creatures of habit; and requested the same suite we had the last two years. Enough room for us and close to the main lodge. The staff was courteous and helpful. While areas of the lodge can use some improvement, I would recommend it, especially for families.
- 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
