Bishop's Lodge, Auberge Resorts Collection

Santa Fe’s chic ranch getaway

Over its 150-year history, Bishop’s Lodge, Auberge Resorts Collection has seen many iterations, from the home of Santa Fe’s first archbishop to a dude ranch. But no incarnation has been so glorious as its current one. Opened in 2021 after a $75 million renovation led by international design firm HKS and renowned architect Nunzio Mark DeSantis, Bishop’s Lodge embodies the soul of Santa Fe. Only a 10-minute drive from the New Mexico capital’s historic plaza, the resort is like a secret (and immense) 317-acre hideaway surroundedby the Sangre de Cristo Mountain range. Suited for both outdoor lovers—with endless hiking and horseback riding—and sensory seekers in the realms of cuisine, art or spa, Bishop’s Lodge delivers a soulful escape for all ages.

Rooms offer state-of-the-art perks while channeling rustic Southwestern vibes with kiva fireplaces and art by Santa Fe and Native American artists. A year-round heated pool, gym, art gallery, crafts workshops and historical chapel hosting yoga classes and art classes are just a few of the amenities that beg for an extended stay.
