Bishop's Lodge is located a few miles outside of Santa Fe and requires either a car or taking the hotel shuttle to get to all the restaurants, shops and sights of Santa Fe. I would also read some of the reviews here on TA, and average out the good and bad.

I know the grounds are beautiful and there is history to the place. Read Willa Cather's Death Comes for the Archbishop about Bishop Lamy who lived on the grounds of what would become Bishop's Lodge.

Hopefully some folks that have stayed there recently will post.

it is very nice. I wonder if you can arrange the wedding in the chapel that is on the grounds.!

It is actually the original chapel from Bishop Lamy. You really should read Cather's book if you plan to be there.

The location is fabulous, the food good, and the service good. I am sure they do many weddings. The only complaints seem to be about the rooms themselves - small and tired. Read more on TA.

if you do the bishops, remember it is slightly out of town (6mi or so), so you cant just walk downtown or anything for amusement, youll basically be there. be sure everyone stays there if drinking, the 2-lane road back into sf will be dangerous in the dark to those unfamiliar with it. they have a shuttle but after a wedding party, hmmmm? bishops is in a very pretty setting, its sf's original resort, belonged to the archbishop 100+ yrs ago. got pool and spa, etc. dont know about the food/catering, havent eaten there. dont know about the rooms, either, but it's big enough that there will be variety, so be clear on what youre getting so nobody feels cheated if someone else has a better view or room. if you dont want to be out of town, consider la posada, they have good wedding services coordinator and its also a resort with pool etc. and is right downtown. its whether you want more rural nm or city center sf.
