This is was the second time that I've stayed at the Touchstone and intend to go back again when vacationing in Taos. Innkeepers Amber and Brad go above board with a warm welcome, personalized attention and helpful suggestions for a relaxing vacation.

Brad and Amber were just awesome hosts! We stayed 3 nights and upgraded the last 2 to the lawrence room and it was a great time. I would recommend a nicer room such as the lawrence as it was well worth the extra $'s. Touchstone has beautiful grounds and is a very quiet romantic stay. Brad and Amber cooked us...

We enjoyed our stay at the Touchstone Inn. The owners were friendly and welcoming. The art gallery/breakfast room is lovely. The owner is a chef and the breakfast was delicious. Our room was quite small (our mistake, not theirs). Next time, we would stay in one of the larger rooms.

Touchstone was a wonderfully quiet getaway in Taos. We did visit during pre-pre-season with the goal of having a quiet getaway. It was perfect. The rooms were cosy and welcoming. So much so that we spent one afternoon doing nothing but napping and watching TV. Breakfast was great and filling. Just perfect for starting the day.
