Our Retreat at a historic Lodge is located in the enchanted beauty of Taos, New Mexico. Our property has 18 bedrooms, a swimming pool and a hot tub, a labyrinth and a meditation path on 3 beautiful acres just two miles from Taos Town Square. We are located 30 min away from Taos Ski Valley and Angel Fire Resort.
We are a small family-owned and operated hotel. We want our guests and our team feel like family when they visit here. Roger and Albina own the property although they are not always physically present in Taos. Marina, Albina's mother, and her 2 brothers run the hotel. Albina's family is originally from Kazakhstan.
Our higher purpose is to help people live a happy, healthy and inspired life. Roger and Albina are yogis who at some point owned 7 yoga studios in Texas.

We are a historic bed & breakfast and retreat center in the enchanted Beauty of Taos, New Mexico. Because we are a family-owned and operated property that is almost 100 years old, our small, but mighty team needs help with the following projects. We are shutting down the lodge for November and the first 2 weeks of December.
Deep Clean the rooms at the lodge
Taos, New Mexico is a hidden treasure tucked away from the beaten path. It is quant town, one of the oldest art colonies in the US with many art galleries, shops and museums. Taos is an outdoor heaven with numerous breathtakingly beautiful hikes in Kit Carson National Forest, Red River, Taos Ski Valley, Eagle Lake and the world famous Enchanted Circle. You can visit the Taos Pueblo, a UNESCO protected area where the Native Americans have lived for nearly a millennia.
It is run by a family from Kazakhstan. Our intent is to welcome you as our own family, as you help us renovate our beautiful historic property. Marina, the owner's mom, will be cooking delicious home made breakfast for us every morning and occasional meals served family style.
We are looking for reliable people with high integrity.
Once you submit your request, we will send you a questionnaire and schedule an interview with you. After the interview, you will be informed whether or not your application has been approved.
