Miriam Hapgood Dewitt built this room for her son, Edwin.  Amber:  I have such fond memories of this room as a child. When I was a little girl it was our library and I would sit in front of the fireplace and read in this room for hours. This is a warm and inviting room. It is a perfect room in which to curl up and relax! Firelight reflects off the high coved ceiling from the Miriam’s wood burning kiva fireplace. This room has a queen bed and shower bath. It has its own covered flagstone patio and private entrance and is located on the ground floor; it is in the old adobe section of the building and is cool in the summer and warm and cozy in the winter.

Current lodging rate is $125.00.  Breakfast rate has been separated to reflect a fee of $20 per, which is not taxed and is charged upon booking,  if you opt-in for breakfast at the time of booking.  The inclusive rate is $165.00 per night for 2.  Specify in the comments section if you wish to have breakfast and if you have any food allergies.

Touchstone is a house with many different rooms available for you to enjoy. Touchstone’s living room and dining room are communal spaces. Enjoy writing a postcard or playing the baby grand. Borrow a book, or enjoy Touchstone’s art collection. Sit for a while in front of the fire and let us tell you about the history of the house and our close connection to Mable Dodge and Tony Luhan.

Our Gallery has been called a living watercolor, where the bright light streaming through the skylights and conservatory windows animate the artist’s work.
