Why Stay At Bishop's Lodge
On 450 bucolic acres four miles north of Santa Fe, the Bishop's Lodge is the perfect mix of history (some on-site structures date to the 1800s); luxury (in-room kiva fireplaces; a 7,000-square-foot spa); and Old West charms (horseback riding and sunset barbecues).
The historic Bishop's Lodge set the tone for Santa Fe's numerous hotels: the resort was the first to open in the area in 1915, though the on-site chapel is even older—it was built in 1852 by Jean Baptiste Lamy, the first archbishop of Santa Fe, and it's now on the National Register of Historic Places. A 2000 renovation added all the requisite luxury details, from kiva fireplaces to wood-beamed ceilings, but it still retained its historic charms—perhaps one reason why the crew of Crazy Heart spent nine days filming at the 450-acre resort in 2010. Guests meander along the grounds to see the small chapel and the sagebrush hills featured in the movie, while more structured on-site activities take place throughout the day. Wrangler-led horseback rides depart from the on-site stables for tours amid the high country; hiking trails meander through the Sangre de Cristo Mountains; and the enormous heated pool (Santa Fe's largest) is busy through the snow-dusted winter season. Muted rooms are cozy without exuding New Mexican kitsch, though the traditional tepee at the spacious SháNah Spa is an unexpected reminder of the area's original settlers: the Tewa Indians.
Don't miss a massage at SháNah, the Bishop Lodge's spa (the name translates to vitality and energy). Many treatments incorporate local products, such as a blue corn body scrub and river stones.
More than five miles of hiking trails snake along the hotel's 450 acres among the forested ridges and valleys of Santa Fe's Sangre de Cristo Mountains. Ask to borrow one of the hotel's complimentary GPS devices so you won't lose your way.

Why We Love Santa Fe
The aroma of burning piñon logs permeates the air in Santa Fe, a reminder that, despite its vibrant population of painters and photographers, this city remains strongly connected to its Spanish-Native American heritage—and to the pristine landscape that surrounds it.
Four-day pass from $18.
Best Day Trip: Though it's often overshadowed by Taos Ski Valley, the Ski Santa Fe resort has 38 trails that start as high as 12,000 feet. There are no hotels in the ski area, but Santa Fe's city center is just four miles away.
One-day adult lift ticket $63.
Where to Eat: The Shed, a tucked-away downtown restaurant partially set in a 1692 hacienda, is a perennial local favorite. Start with the cold red raspberry soup made with rosé wine, lime, and sour cream, followed by the signature red chile enchiladas.
Dinner for two $60.
Where to Drink: Casual Maria's Mexican Kitchen is the place for margaritas. The menu lists more than 100 different types, including agave and prickly pear.
Margaritas start at $7.
