Touchstone Inn

THE place to stay in Taos - USA Today

Circa 1800, Touchstone Inn is a quiet adobe estate secluded among tall trees at the edge of Pueblo lands. The grounds have an unobstructed view of Taos Mountain on historic Taos Pueblo. Mature trees, extensive gardens, trickling fountains, and the sound of the Rio Pueblo add to the ambiance of Touchstone. USA Today calls Touchstone Inn “THE place to stay in Taos.”
This Historic Taos Inn, Spa and Gallery features cozy rooms with fireplaces, luxurious textiles, intimate patios and exquisite tiled baths
Touchstone is a quiet and secluded location in town, close to everything Taos. Built in adobe and shaded in privacy by tall trees, we specialize in luxurious accommodations for your romantic getaway or family retreat. Opt-in for breakfast, charged separately, and wake up from your cozy bed to a gourmet breakfast, or DIY with refrigerator and microwave and coffee pot in every room.  You can also visit one of the nearby restaurants, six within walking distance, that serve breakfast, lunch and dinner. Our boutique hotel is within walking distance to Kit Carson Park with fairs and music venues and the Plaza is less than a mile from Touchstone Inn.  Surround yourself with tranquility and art. 
Enjoy a glass of wine on a private sun-drenched patio, or by a crackling fire in a kiva fireplace, BYOB. Take a stroll through historic Taos and explore numerous galleries, shops, museums, world-class fine dining, and the Taos Plaza. Or go out on an adventure! Rafting season, snow skiing, bike riding, are just a few of the activities, plus gorgeous hiking trails abound.
Our optional prefix breakfasts are served between 8:30 am and 9:30 am, are made with local fresh ingredients; gluten free and vegetarian is our specialty. Our delicious sweets, like blueberry pancakes and waffles, are gluten free.
Most rooms have private patios or a deck and outside entrance, with rich textiles the main focus of decor. Four rooms have Jacuzzi tubs. And some rooms have wood-burning or candle Kiva fireplaces.
Riverbend Spa at Touchstone
Enjoy our on-site spa at Touchstone, where therapists strive to help you relax after a busy day of shopping, or that rough day of hiking or skiing on the slopes. Enjoy your massage in one of our indoor spa rooms or be outdoors next to the river or near the fountain on the Pueblo boundary overlooking Taos Mountain.
