THIS ESTABLISHMENT IS CLOSED FOR RENOVATIONS UNTIL EARLY SUMMER 2018.
In the mid-17th century, the Vatican wanted the newly annexed territory of New Mexico to be supervised by a smart and strong representative. As a result, the appointed Bishop Lamy purchased for $80 what became his home and is now 420 acres known as the Bishop's Lodge. Several owners later, this luxurious camp provides all the creature comforts, including the SháNah spa and wellness center, where treatments begin with optional drumming and a blessing. Fully appointed rooms and suites in pueblo-style casitas with large patios make perfect abodes for your purification escape. Newer accommodations high up on the hill boast exceptional views---especially at dawn and dusk. Medium-sized refrigerators are kept empty, allowing you to store any food, rather than leave it in your car to be eaten by bears. And yes, this is a wilderness retreat, meaning you can see bears and rabbits, hear coyotes and mountain lions and smell the trace of skunks.
