Situated on 317 secluded acres of land, guests are invited to slow down and engage in powerful personal transformation through six artistic mediums: Visual and storytelling arts (which are part of our vibrant Santa Fe culture); the art of adventure; ancient healing arts; culinary arts; the art of ritual and celebration; and the design and architecture of our lovingly restored Lodge.

Concepted by 'The Godfather of Southwestern Cuisine', Chef Dean Fearing's SkyFire draws inspiration from the diverse, rich ingredients and textures found in Mexico, and infuses them with unexpected modern techniques.

The transformative element of fire is present throughout the bar, main dining room and terrace where piñon or cedar wood logs are burned to evoke a scent which roots you to our grounding atmosphere, and the wood-fired grill imparts complexity to bright, vibrant dishes.

Fishing & Wildlife

For those who may want a more exclusive fishing experience, we offer guided trips on the best private ranches and preserves in our area. These trips often become one of a fly fisherman's most memorable experiences!

Along with beauty and seclusion, private water usually offers an angler the best chances at catching and landing trophy-sized fish.

The private ranches and the Valles Caldera National Preserve (VCNP) charge a rod/access fee for an angler to fish on their waters. This rod/access fee will be added to the cost of the trip.

Fishing on offer

fly, instruction available

Wildlife

Deer
