  • Talk about a diamond in the rough...this wonder escape from the world is amazing...discovered this place on accident, just taking a Sunday family drive...the place is amazing, beautiful setting at the foothills of the Sangre de Cristos...the breakfast was pretty good, waffles, eggs, cereal, and fruit with muffins...besides the renovations going on, this is a place I'll definitely be taking my family back to...stayed in the way back at the Jemez lodge (245)...great room, with wonderful views...
  • I had an absolutely terrible and racially charged experience at Las Fuentes Restaurant at Bishops Lodge. I had made reservations nearly 2 weeks in advance, but when we arrived, there was a party for a local Law firm that apparently caused the rest of the Bishops Lodge staff to forget that there were other customers. We ended up waiting for our table for about 45 minutes. When the hostess finally arrived, she didn't believe we had a reservation and I spent another 5 minutes explaining to her that I was who I said I was and I did, indeed, have a reservation. The restaurant we made our reservation for was too full, so the hostess took us downstairs to Las Fuentes. When we got there, we were ready to relax and expected the rest of the night to go smoothly, but that was not the case. The staff at Las Fuentes was so incredibly rude and racist towards me (a black woman) and my dinner guest (a hispanic man), both of us clearly American and familiar with cultural dining practices. After ordering our food (but before it arrived) the waiter felt the need to come back to our table while we were enjoying a glass of wine for the purpose of reminding us that, "it is customary for you to tip 15%." The waiter then stood there and crossed his arms with his eyebrows raised until we said we understood. I was totally and completely shocked! The waiter obviously had no interest in serving us, and stared us down and whispered with the bartender the whole time we were eating, as if we didn't belong there. The sweet, elderly, white couple sitting nearby gave us a sympathetic look and told us not to worry because they could tell how upset I was. After our food came, the waiter immediately brought us our check. He didn't ask if we wanted more wine, or dessert and didn't ask us how the food was. He just wanted us to leave. I was so shocked and appalled at the overwhelming rudeness of the waiter throughout our meal, I couldn't even eat their over-priced, dry, mealy, bland "crab cakes." I made sure when we left (probably only 35 minutes after sitting down) we only left the customary 15% even though I typically leave 30%. I spent the ride home apologizing profusely to my dinner guest for what he had to endure. We are both respectable, successful and highly professional young people (mid-20s) and we did not deserve to be treated that way. Bishop's Lodge is a joke. I will not be patronizing this business ever again, I will never recommend it, and I will be reporting them to the Better Business Bureau. It was hands down the worst dining experience I've had in my entire life.
  • This review is specifically for an activity at Bishops Lodge. My family of 6 (4 kids) stayed at Bishop's Lodge on Spring Break in March of 2014. We were busy signing up for horse-back riding, and planning our hiking around the area. When we asked what other activities there were, we were pointed to Jade's "Drum & Journey Circle". I looked at the brochure, but it looked like a company 'team building' class. I wasn't sure it was appropriate for our kids, being ages 6, 7, 10 and 11. Unsure, we even called Jade Gonzalez to check, she said the kids would be fine. I'm REALLY glad we went! The 3 daughters participated well, and had fun following others lead or making a drum beat for others to follow. The real surprise was my 10 year old son, who drug his feet all the way there. He played for the whole 45 minutes, and then for the next 2 days went on about how fun it was! My wife and I had fun, but it was most enjoyable because of the group activity with the whole family participating. I would recommend going to this, with school age kids, it was great! -Milo Mills, Lafayette, Indiana
  • A Fireplace in the bathroom! Okay, cleverly shared with the living-room-like bedroom, and still mindgobbling to me. Ballroom Conference Facilities, gentle and subtle service, beautiful surroundings and tasty order-inn foods makes this place a very special experience to me. Even though it was 13 years ago in the beautiful summer of 2001!!
  • Very much enjoyed our visit to Bishops Lodge. A bit dated, but found there to be enough charm to compensate. Our room was large, clean, comfortable. The fireplace was wonderful. The grounds are very nice. Imagine it would be a great place to be in the warmer months. Ate dinner in the restaurant, which was a nice experience, though the food (wife had scallops and I had the chicken - because the sides sounded so good, which they were) was ok. Perhaps the biggest question for me, especially considering all the choices, is - would we come back? The answer is yes, we would.
