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 an unobstructed view 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 Taos Bed and Breakfast, Spa and Gallery features cozy rooms with fireplaces, luxurious textiles, intimate patios and exquisite tiled baths (four of which have Jacuzzi tubs). The Historic Taos Touchstone Inn offers relaxing accommodations. The Taos spa offers massage, yoga, facials, and therapeutic baths and wraps. Guests enjoy choice vistas of Taos Mountain looking out upon Taos Pueblo lands and walking the Labyrinth in meditation where one stops in contemplation gazing upon Taos Pueblo mountain tops. An added bonus is the availability of 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.
This is one of the nine Mabel Dodge Luhan houses in the Taos area and this land was gifted to her by Tony Luhan when they were married.
D. H. Lawrence visited this house with his friend Spud Johnson in the 1920′s; accordingly, the inn’s owner, Taos Artist Bren Price, has named many of the rooms 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 Taos Pueblo lands, and has a large bathroom with Jacuzzi tub, walk-in double shower, and round skylight over the tub. Early-morning coffee is available in the great room – named after Leopold Stokowski, and breakfasts with inventive presentations (such as blueberry pancakes with lemon sauce) are served in the glassed-in patio gallery which looks out over Taos Mountain and Taos Pueblo lands.
