Staff Report

SANTA FEWith its history of 95 years as a resort approaching in 2013, Bishop’s Lodge Ranch Resort & Spa celebrated during a special event Friday evening that included the burying of a time capsule.

More special celebrations are planned throughout 2013 to commemorate the 95th Anniversary of The Bishop’s Lodge Ranch Resort & Spa’s transition from a private estate to New Mexico’s first resort retreat in 1918. The 95th anniversary year will include exciting events, promotions and a photography contest.

History

In 1853, the first archbishop of Santa Fe, Jean Baptiste Lamy, was drawn to the natural and tranquil beauty of the Tesuque Valley where he established his private retreat, La Villa Pintoresca.

Today, Bishop’s Lodge Ranch Resort & Spa is dedicated to preserving Lamy’s history, 156-year-old chapel and tradition.

The resort is nestled in the shadows of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains on 450 verdant acres in the Tesuque Valley, surrounded by the Santa Fe National Forest and just minutes from Santa Fe’s Plaza.

Bishop’s Lodge boasts 15 Santa Fe adobe-style lodges housing 91 unique rooms, many with kiva fireplaces, private courtyards and quaint balconies as well as eight exclusive gated villas.
