The Mabel Dodge Luhan House
Taos' rich artistic and literary heritage is celebrated at this historic B&B.
Named for former occupant Mabel Gansen Evans Dodge Sterne Luhan, a salon hostess, art patroness, writer and philanthropist, this property now operates as a quiet inn. Those who stay here will enjoy becoming part of a famous guest list that includes Georgia O’Keeffe, D.H. Lawrence, Ansel Adams and Dennis Hopper, who called the inn home while editing "Easy Rider." The house, which is rich with artistic and intellectual history, now offers artistic, literary and personal-growth workshops and retreat-style meetings in its accompanying conference center. The inn features antique architectural touches such as herringbone vigas, traditional arched doorways, carved pillars and kiva fireplaces, as well as natural panoramic views of the Taos landscape that can be enjoyed from quiet patios or the banks of the property’s tree-lined acequia. Each morning, a full breakfast is served in the dining room. Guest rooms in the main building of this quaint inn range from king- and queen-sized suites to small rooms with two twin beds; some come with kiva fireplaces, ten-foot ceilings, mud walls, full kitchens and private baths. Next door, the property’s Southwestern style Juniper House offers eight additional rooms with similar layouts and accommodations.
