Mabel Dodge Luhan House - Taos, New Mexico

Enjoy Winter Sports and Galleries in Taos

It is no wonder that Taos is home to more art galleries than you can imagine with the spectacular scenery and lighting conditions available to artists. This village has something to offer any bed and breakfast visitor. If you like outdoor activities you have access to world class ski resorts in the winter or you can hike, camp, or just enjoy the scenery any other time. Bed and breakfast guests will find a sampling of fine and casual restaurants, theater, shops, and of course all of those galleries. Bed and breakfast are family owned and are often owned by local artists. This town is definitely worth a look on your trip to the Southwest.

Mabel Dodge Luhan House

Circa 1922. Not far from the center of town at the end of a quiet road, pass through the massive front gates to enter the elegant adobe world of Mabel Dodge Luhan House in Taos, New Mexico. This historic three-story home boasts herringbone vigas, traditional arched doorways, carved pillars and kiva fireplaces with welcoming hearths. Relax on the patio with a tree-lined acequia and stunning panoramic views. Beverages are available at the coffee bar. More than a B&B, artistic retreats and personal growth workshops are popularly held here. Most of the guest bedrooms feature fireplaces and some have semi-private patios. The third-floor Solarium has incredible Sacred Mountain vistas. Linger over a gourmet breakfast each morning.
