was a woman of profound contradictions. She was generous. She
was petty. Domineering and endearing. She was Mabel Gansen Evans
Dodge Sterne Luhan – salon hostess, art patroness, writer
and self-appointed savior of humanity.
as you approach the house of Mabel Dodge Luhan, it’s easy
to see why some of the greatest minds of the 20th century were
inspired here. Situated at the end of a quiet road not far from
the center of town, the house appears much as it did in the days
when Mabel admired her views of the sacred Taos Mountain from
the third-story solarium. One can only imagine the tantalizing
conversations that must have taken place within these walls. After
all, Georgia O’Keeffe stayed here. So did D.H. Lawrence,
Ansel Adams, Martha Graham and Carl Jung, among many other notables.
As an historic inn and conference center which offers retreat-style
meetings and artistic, literary, and personal growth workshops,
the Mabel Dodge Luhan House continues to build on its 80-year
history of personal, intellectual and artistic ferment.
a guest of the house expect to enjoy warm adobe charm, early century
elegance, historic relevance. Herringbone vigas, traditional arched
doorways, kiva fireplaces, and carved pillars. A welcoming hearth
and relaxed ambiance. Panoramic view. Quiet patios and a tree-lined
acequia. A full gourmet breakfast will start each day of your
stay with us.
