How to Plan a Honeymoon for 2022, According to Experts

“Santa Fe is an LGBTQ+-welcoming and multicultural mecca thanks to its Native American and Spanish roots. Book one of the adults-only Kiva suites at Auberge Resorts' new Bishop's Lodge, which opened in July on 317 national-forest acres after a historic renovation.” ~ Condè Nast Traveler, January 2022

Where Shall We Go?

"A new resort in the U.S. isn't news, unless it's in Santa Fe, the self-styled "different" city of artists, adventurers, and spiritualists. Before Bishop's Lodge (an Auberge property) opened last summer, on 317 acres bordering Santa Fe National Forest, the vibe here was most in-town inns. The site was previously occupied: In the 1850s the first archbishop of Santa Fe, Jean-Baptiste Lamy, build a retreat and chapel here; in the early 1900s, the Pulitzer family constructed a private home (now the main lodge building). There are also stand-alone casitas––adobe walls, kiva fireplaces––a 12-bedroom "bunkhouse," restaurant, stables, a pool, trout stream, and healing arts studio. All of it is less than four miles from the town's creative ferment, and it comes with those impeccably blue skies and the scent of sage and burning piñon." ~ Town & Country, December 2021

"Painterly and rugged: New Mexico’s landscape looks especially romantic at a gallop – or maybe just a gentle trot. Saddle up for a piñon-scented sunset ride at the newly opened Bishop’s Lodge, a 100-room revival of a Santa Fe landmark at the foot of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains. Auberge Resorts Collection overhauled the 317-acre historic site, which began 150 years ago as the headquarters of New Mexico’s first archbishop, Jean-Baptiste Lamy (the inspiration for Willa Cather’s novel Death Comes for the Archbishop). Every room has a kiva fireplace; the new 12-bedroom Bunkhouse sleeps 24 adults and 12 kids; the Turquesa Healing Arts Studio mixes art therapy with traditional spa treatments; and Southwestern culinary eminence Dean Fearing lends his touch to the restaurant with its piñon- and cedar-fired grill." ~ Virtuoso Life, December 2021

4 Reasons to Stay at Santa Fe’s Bishop’s Lodge

"Santa Fe tends to conjure images of Georgia O’Keeffe paintings, designer cowboy hats, and turquoise jewelry, but the arts mecca’s newest resort focuses on New Mexico’s natural wonders. Located on 317 acres at the edge of the Santa Fe National Forest, just minutes from town, Bishop’s Lodge, Auberge Resorts Collection, opened this summer, following the $75 million renovation of a property that was once the home of Santa Fe’s first archbishop. The grounds are chock-full of reminders why this state is known as the Land of Enchantment." ~ Hemispheres, November 2021

That 'Land of Enchantment' motto feels like a bull’s-eye this time of year." ~ AFAR, November 2021

The Dean Gets His Due: The Works of Warren E. Rollins

"You probably don’t know his name. That’s because, among the artists associated with the development of the Santa Fe Art Colony in the early 1900s — Sheldon Parsons, Gerald Cassidy, and Carlos Vierra among them — one never received the recognition afforded his peers. As four large-scale pieces now hanging in the newly renovated living room and main dining room of the Bishop’s Lodge can attest, Warren Eliphalet Rollins (1861-1962) was a talented artist whose work on Native subject matter, which was rendered in a classic academic style, proved influential." ~ Santa Fe New Mexican, July 2021
