My husband and I loved, loved, loved Bishop's Lodge! We were there for 4 nights in May and had a fabulous, relaxing and zen like stay. Our room was up the mountain with spectacular views. It was huge, extremely comfortable and beautifully decorated in the Santa Fe style with a functioning Kiva fireplace in the corner.
We walked to breakfast every morning, past the original chapel (which dates back to the 1800's), while taking in the wildflowers, birds, deer and beautiful Santa Fe scenery. Did I forget to mention that the resort backs up to the National Forest so if hiking is your passion wonderful trails that provide amazing vistas are just outside of your doorstep.
We ate delicious breakfasts at the resort restaurant on the patio where we enjoyed the ambiance including music, a wind sculpture garden and beautiful views of the mountains and the pool. Had one amazing dinner there as well.
The resort is literally 5 minutes to the square where great restaurants and shopping abound and although you are so close you really feel like you are away from everything when you are at Bishops Lodge - which is exactly how I like to vacation.
I would and do recommend this resort to everyone - I have been traveling to Santa Fe regularly for over 20 years and this is the best experience I have had! I can't wait to return.
- 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
