About Touchstone


Touchstone Inn, a Taos Boutique Hotel Overlooks Historic Taos, New Mexico Pueblo Land

Circa 1800, Touchstone Inn, a Taos lodging facility, is a quiet adobe estate in Taos, New Mexico,  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 Taos accommodations on a long term basis as well as nightly rentals.   Breakfast at Touchstone Inn is vegetarian with gluten free with advance notice and is served from 8:30 A.M. to 9:30 A.M.  Our Taos 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.  Guests and 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 less than 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 1930’s; accordingly, many of the rooms are named after famous Taos Artists and literary figures. This makes for a quiet stay within a mile of Taos Plaza. Some rooms have a fireplace, and all rooms have an 0n-suite private bath, refrigerator and microwave. The enormous Royale Suite has a second-story private deck that overlooks the Rio Pueblo as it leaves Pueblo lands. This suite has a large bathroom with Jacuzzi tub, walk-in double shower, and round skylight over the tub.

During business hours and by appointment, residents have access to  the great room, named after Leopold Stokowski, and  the glassed-in patio gallery which features the artwork of Bren Price, and looks out over Taos Mountain and Taos, New Mexico Pueblo lands.
