Historic Taos Pueblo Land
Circa 1800, Touchstone Inn is a quiet adobe estate secluded among tall trees at the edge of Taos Pueblo lands. The grounds have choice views of Taos Mountain on historic Taos Pueblo Lands. Mature trees, extensive gardens, trickling fountains, and the sound of the Rio Taos Pueblo add to the ambiance of Touchstone. USA Today calls Touchstone Inn “THE place to stay in Taos.” This Historic Taos Inn offers relaxing accommodations on a long term basis as well as nightly rentals. Optional breakfast at Touchstone is a vegetarian with gluten free accommodation. Our restaurant is available on a Prefix basis by booking ahead by 48 hours. The Taos spa is an independent entity and offers massage, yoga, facials, and therapeutic baths and wraps. Residents enjoy exquisite vistas of Taos Mountain looking out upon Taos Pueblo lands. An added bonus is the availability of art studio rentals on a daily or long term basis as well as art classes offered through Touchstone Foundation, 501C-3. Taos Ski valley is 18 miles to the north, Taos Casino is one mile north and Taos Plaza is one mile south of Touchstone Inn, and 2 miles away is Taos Pueblo.
D. H. Lawrence visited this house with his friend Spud Johnson in the 1920’s; accordingly, many of the rooms are named after famous Taos Artists and literary figures. The grounds overlook Taos Pueblo lands, and this makes for a quiet stay within a mile of Taos Plaza. Some rooms have fireplaces and all have private baths. The enormous Royale Suite has a second-story private deck that overlooks the Rio Pueblo as it exits the Pueblo lands. This room has a large bathroom with Jacuzzi tub, walk-in double shower, and round skylight over the tub. Residents have access to the great room, named after Leopold Stokowski, and the glassed-in patio gallery which looks out over Taos Mountain and Taos Pueblo lands.
