About Bishop's Lodge Ranch Resort & Spa
Fragrant piñon pines and vibrant yellow chamisal bushes rustle in the breeze on the slopes of the Little Tesuque Valley. Horses trot by, scaling both gentle and rugged territory. Bishop's Lodge Ranch Resort & Spa builds on a history stretching back to the early 1900s, when a French bishop erected the site's first lodge and planted its first fruit trees. Now the resort stretches out over 15 lodge buildings filled with deluxe and standard suites and those accessible to guests with disabilities. Many of the suites are named for local flora and freshwater marshes vital to the local ecosystem. The central lodge still shows its origins as an adobe carriage house, and the north and south lodges blend Southwestern and Midwestern with some rooms bedecked in crown molding and others with exposed ceiling beams. The resort's views and architecture even made it an appropriate setting for the film Crazy Heart.
Each day guests can take advantage of guided morning, afternoon, and sunset horseback rides along trails through the Sangre de Cristo mountains and lessons in Western riding style. Children of various ages also explore the outdoors in summer adventure camps. Therapists in an onsite spa slough off wilderness stressors, and a partnership with the Santa Fe Opera lets guests watch and listen as classical singers croon before lavish sets in an outdoor amphitheater. Onsite restaurants contribute to the hotel's environmentally friendly mission as culinary crews prepare their dishes using ranch-grown fruits and vegetables, practice water conservation, and let spatulas roam free-range.
