The Dora

Dora Kaminsky Gaspard
Dora Kaminsky Gaspard is the spirit of this room! It features one of her original works of art and sumptuous textiles which she would have loved. Dora lived in Taos for many years with her husband Leon Gaspard. This room has a fabulous view of Taos Mountain just outside the deck of this cozy southwestern hideaway. The Dora is located on the second floor of Touchstone all way around to the backside. From the old leather saddle to the wood burning fireplace and upstairs wooden deck this room will draw you into the Taos mystique. This room sleeps two with a custom hand crafted queen bed and full luxury bath with RC Gorman tiles. The floor of this room is made of wooden parquet tiles that glow beautifully and the ceiling is made of vigas and latillas in a herringbone pattern. It also has a fridge, microwave, TV, coffee and wine service. This room can be connected to the Frida and makes a perfect suite for families or couples traveling together.

Touchstone is a house with many different rooms available for you to enjoy. Touchstone’s living room and dining room are communal spaces open during business hours and by appointment. 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.
