Mabel Dodge Luhan House

Reviewed 30 April 2014

I booked the solarium and was really excited about staying here. The atmosphere is so beautiful and everything inside is really charming. The problem is there's no real privacy. You can hear everything your neighbors say and do and they can hear you too. As a private person, I found the stay to be uncomfortable. Too bad, they get a lot right. The beds are comfy and the rooms are beautiful. Also breakfast is only from 8-9 every day so we missed it.

The Mabel Dodge Luhan House is truly a unique and glorious experience. It's steeped in history, it was the site of salons for the likes of Aldous Huxley, D.H. Lawrence, Carl Jung, Martha Graham, Georgia O'Keefe, and many, many more, and it abuts land of the Taos Pueblo. I stayed in the Solarium or Eagle's Nest. Wow! Windows on all 4 sides. Views of the mountains, the Pueblo, trees, and the entire complex. A glorious way to commune with the heavens!! And the food!!! Non-stop yumminess. The cuisine changed daily and was equally spectacular each day. I'm a bit of a foodie, I know good food, and I compare the food here with the food in most 4-5 restaurants in NYC, San Fran, and elsewhere. This is an experience not to be missed!!

Room Tip: Can't beat the Solarium but the steps up to it are steep!

This is a place built on history. I came hear on a personal retreat to find some center within a hectic lifestyle, I found an essence of Taos. Backed up directly to Indian land and with a back story out of movies it is a blessing to stay here. If you are looking to be pampered or coddled, this is not the place for you. Understand you find these things through self reflection and quite. The staff is very Taos, as well as everything you run into in city limits don't let that discourage you, much like France no one is in a hurry to serve or in turn get paid. This is all ok, because the beauty is no one really has anywhere to be.

This is a great hotel for a relaxing time away from downtown Taos, the epicenter of tourism in northern New Mexico. It has great lounging areas inside and out. The staff is friendly and accommodating. Realize what you are reserving: a spot in an historic building that was positioned to take advantage of the climate and the setting. So ... it is a bit hard to find (especially, as we did, in the dark). Getting to the entrance requires hiking up a set of wooden stairs (it is NOT a building that features handicap access). If you want a tv in your room or seamless wifi reception throughout the hotel this place is not for you. And if you want a 100-year-old building to act as if it is new (no creaking floor boards, brand new mattresses, hotel-style furniture) -- forget it. It's a real gem for those who are interested in really being in New Mexico.

Room Tip: In winter, select a room with a fireplace for atmosphere. In summer, cross ventilation would be a g...

We loved this place... cosy, rustic, a fieplace in the room and a nice walk into town. Beautiful breakfast room with delicious food. We were disappointed that the Taos Pueblo was closed, so were happy that the Mabel Dodge Luhan House turned out to be an experience in itself-- a unique place with an interesting history.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Ansel Adams room. It could have used another arm chair for sitting by the fire.

Tucked away down at the end of a dirt alley. Quiet location. On vacation, we stopped here to visit because Georgia O'Keeffe had spent some time here prior to moving to Abquiu. We enjoyed being allowed to simply poke around. Period furnishings. Stained glass. Arched doorways. Creaky wood floors. Primarily used for groups and conferences. Pleasant atmosphere. We were offered cookies, tea, and coffee before leaving.
