A refuge from the pressures of modern life that provides all the amenities of home and the rustic charm of an invigorating outdoor experience under legendary blue skies and the abundant sunshine that has drawn artists for centuries.

J2A Teen Pilgrimage

  • 1 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in Santa Fe, with trips to Taos, Chimayo, before we left for Acoma. The house was perfect for 8 of us. All paper goods and supplies were there, you just needed personal items. We had fun cooking, and the pantry was pretty well stocked, especially with spices. We fit 8 around the table, with the extra chairs, and also enjoyed the outdoor sitting area. We were sorry the pool was not open yet! The camp was a beautiful, dramatic setting, perfect for star gazing, we watched the moonrise! Hope we can visit again.

We loved it! It was nice and private. Spotty wifi which was great.

  • 5 of 5

When we first pulled up, the yard landscape wasn't much to look at at first which made me a little nervous. Once we went inside it was cozy, comfortable and very inviting. Charming place for my family and plenty of room. Absolutely worth it, and recommend for a large family and anyone looking for a quiet vacation. Note, this is a retreat lodge with other lodging close by on the property however we were the only occupants during our entire week stay which was fantastic. Plenty of parking, with a nearby pool, basketball and volleyball court which the kids loved. We very much enjoyed our stay!!!

In the Woods

  • 4 of 5

Overall, the property was great for family reunions or large families. It was clean and well taken care of. It is 15 minutes away from town. We were given detailed instructions to the home. I must warn others, cell services in limited ( primarily non-existent). Wifi was very spotty.

Owner's Response: It was a pleasure having You stay with us at The Retreat House at Bishop's Ridge in Santa Fe, NM. I am glad You enjoyed Your stay with us. Yes, it is true, we are on the mountain, and Verizon is the most reliable mobile service that is available in our area until You get closer into town. It does seem like most other services have a week signal in the area of The Retreat House, and we still maintain a phone landline in The Retreat House for guests who's service signal may be week in our area, as a convenience and a safety measure. Once again, Thank You for staying with us, and I'm glad You and Your guests enjoyed the Santa Fe Art Market.

Pleasant and quiet area. A little off the beaten path but clean and well kept.

  • 4 of 5

The house has lots more room than expected. The kitchen was well stocked with everything needed to prepare meals. The caretaker met us upon arrival and explained where everything was located and gave us some tips on most recommended eating establishments and activities in the area. Would definitely stay there again. Good property for large families or 3-4 couples.

Great family accommodations!!

  • 5 of 5

The house had everything we needed located in the foothills. The house was very clean, well stocked, large gas grill, great kitchen, and lots of places to hike and explore. It was a short drive to Santa Fe that offers lots of activities. Bandelier national park and the Los Alamos museum were 1.5 hours away and a must see. We will definitely stay there again!!!
