The beds were so comfortable, plenty of towels, great Taos furnishings, some rooms have jacuzzi, each room coffee maker & frig. Lots of parking.... More

Spent two nights over Labor Day. Complimentary WiFi did not operate in our room. Place was definitely in "end of season" shut down. There is much better lodging available in Taos. TOUCHSTONE WAS A DISAPPOINTMENT.

We planned a trip to Taos to see the band Alabama Shakes and then spend the night in a great place, so we waited until we had the room to buy our tickets. We paid double what we should have because of fees. Bren called later and to say she had mistakenly overbooked, apologizing profusely. After trying unsuccessfully to find... More

We were enchanted with our suite from the first moment we set foot inside. Everything about it reflected the gentle spirit of Bren, whose artist's eye and careful attention to detail has made Touchstone Inn a truly beautiful place to stay for those of us who are lucky enough to book a room there. Even though the Inn is located... More

It was a pretty decent place. We arrived and the door was locked to check in. We soon called Bren and no answer so we left a message. Then I called again and she answered and gave us an envelope that was hanging from the door with our receipt. She then took us to our room. Interior: Bed spread definitely... More

Bren is the gentle soul who owns and guides this cozy, boutique B&B, and she is the reason it all works. Touchstone hosted our small wedding ceremony, and we couldn't be happier for the way it turned out. We were somewhat fortunate that it was a slow-time in the booking season because we had ample space to sprawl and enjoy... More

Bren is very talented, and has displayed beautiful art work that she has painted. Property nice and was quiet. Room was okay. Couple before had fire and room continued to have that smoked smell during our stay. Tried to air out. Needs to be decluttered for type of rooms being booked. Room was pretty clean. Bathroom wasn't very clean ...... More
