A popular lodge offering luxurious housing to generations of guests is being listed for sale in Taos.
Located at 1101 Witt Road, the Blue Sky Retreat at San Geronimo was built in the mid-1920s and features a 13,900 square foot adobe guest lodge on a 2.3-acre site that was once farmland.
Everything about the property suggests early 20th century southwest elegance, with 18 rooms, covered porches, kiva fireplaces, and larger grounds that include a chili-shaped swimming pool, a 45-foot diameter meditation labyrinth and landscaped winding pathways.
The property, with a $3.6 million asking price, is listed with Taos Properties Real Estate.
Always a point of pride among the local residents, the Blue Sky Retreat, notes the Taos News, was the “first modern hotel in Taos when it opened in 1926.”
It has long attracted visitors from across the country. Observes Sharon Niederman in the Explorer’s Guide to New Mexico: “If you yearn for old New Mexico as it was in the heyday of the Taos Society of Artists, this eighteen-room lodge is your place.”
