Reviewed 2 January 2011

Thank you for giving us a "Home" during our Christmas Vacation. My family and I stayed 4 nights during the holidays at Touchstone and it was a wonderful experience. The Inn is beautiful and relaxing and our room very clean and comfortable. It was a pleasure getting to know Bren the owner and having the opportunity to visit her private studio. She a great artist and the house is filled with her touch everywhere. Mr. Wolf the innkeeper is also delightful. The Food was great. We'll comeback someday. Jose, Maria Daniel & Diego.

Touchstone Inn/Gallery in Taos, New Mexico, was an extraordinary B& B. Located close to galleries, restaurants, and the Plaza, it was still secluded and quiet—offering all the amenities we hoped to find. Our room and the entire inn were full of art and history of the area. The food was perfect (light, healthy, and tasty) and was presented in an atrium-like setting with a view of the grounds and distant mountains. The spa on site was available for a most relaxing massage, and the entire property had a peaceful feeling, which created the impression that we were welcomed by the benevolent spirits of ancient peoples from the adjacent Taos Pueblo. Most of all, we were impressed with the innkeepers: they opened their art studios for tours and offered ideas about day trips and points of interest not available in the standard tourist guidebooks. We strongly recommend this Inn to anyone traveling anywhere close to this beautiful part of New Mexico.

Beautiful and peaceful. The reviewer who said this place captures the soul of the southwest was right on. My wife and I stayed in the Lady Brett suite, a small but comfortable room with a door leading to a patio and a large grassy area. Beyond the back latilla fence is the Taos Pueblo Reservation and a magnificent view of Taos peak. The entire property is surrounded by large and very mature trees. Host Bren and John could not have been more courteous. Both are talented artist and their paintings and pottery grace the entire property.

The room was spotless, beautifully decorated and built with classic New Mexico architecture and craftsmanship. The bed was one of the best I've had traveling, with a hand carved bedframe artfully done.

The gardens were beautiful, and a nice variety of fresh flowers were placed in our room in a gorgeous vase made by John. Breakfast was homemade and made with care.
The breakfast room was spectacular; a former patio incorporated into the main house with tons of New Mexico sunshine, ivy covered post, and lots of original artwork.

It is extremely rare to find this level of caring at any cost.

Bren and John work hard to give you the best Taos experience. The inn is very beautiful and comfortable. Everywhere you look there is beautiful art and tile work. The beds are comfortable and the Kiva fireplace and jaccuzzi tub makes for a cozy evening. Breakfast was vegetarian and different but good. It was nice to wake to the view of Taos mountain.

The inn was centrally located just north of the plaza and the center of town which was closer to Taos Mountain for skiing.

The only disappointment was that the sauna and out door hot tub were not working.

thanks to the owners/hosts for handling my change of plans (wife was sick) with professionalism and grace. We were so looking forward to our visit, and had to cancel at the last minute. Excited to go back soon

Our stay at Touchstone Inn over the Fourth of July holiday was wonderful. The owner went out of her way to make us comfortable. The Inn is located near Taos Pueblo Indian Reservation and casino. Family members from Texas and Colorado joined us at the Inn. The quite and serene setting impressed us all. The Inn is filled with beautiful artwork done by the artist and Inn owner, Bren Price. The Inn has a relaxing spa and sauna where we were able to relax and rid ourselves of the work related stress we had accumulated. My wife and I were accommodated in the Royale room, which is beautiful, very spacious, and comfortable. The bathroom is soooo cool with its huge jet tub and a shower with multiple showerheads. We were able to keep in touch with the outside world via the Inn's wireless internet service. We ate a freshly prepared breakfast every morning. Room was always clean. We would definitely go back there.
