History

The San Geronimo Lodge was built in 1925 in the style of a Grand Lodge, with vast common rooms high ceiling with traditional vigas, rambling verandas and winding portals-all situated on the 3.5 acres of natural serenity. Fruit tree abound the banks of the Acequia Madre which rambles through the grounds and many miles of the Carson National Forest are just a short walk away. Built in native adobe, the San Geronimo Lodge truly offers the best of both worlds- historic ambiance and charm with all the comfort and convenience of modern day accommodations.

We’ve been hosting retreats here in Taos and we can say that it organically allows a deeper connection to yourself simply by being here surrounded by nature and unplugging from the daily assault of cell phones, meetings, to do lists and commitments back home. Here, you get to get back to your most natural self.

Meet The Owners: Albina & Roger Rippy

We are yoga teachers and studio owners from Houston, Texas. We fell in love with Taos during many family vacations & memories in Santa Fe and Taos. We felt a sense of homecoming upon each return here and we were renewed by its enchanting landscape, its people and its spirit.

Our historic bed and breakfast is a family-owned and operated business.  We want to ensure that you have an outstanding experience with us at Blue Sky.  When you come to Blue Sky, you are welcomed like family.

Dream Big

We like to dream big and Blue Sky Retreat is a huge part of our big dreams. When we first pulled up to the Historic San Geronimo Lodge, we knew our dreams had come true. Now we want to share our love of New Mexico and our shared dream with you.

Our Purpose

Our higher purpose is to help people live happy, healthy, inspired lives. Our vision for Blue Sky Retreat is co-creating a space for people from all over the world to go away for a while, disconnect from technology, listen in, breathe deeply, feel deeply and commune with nature.

Realizing This Dream

In addition to Blue Sky Retreat, which we acquired in December 2015, we own YogaOne Studios in Houston, Texas, which have since blossomed from one to seven studios in the Houston area. They are hoping to bring the same vibrant and welcoming space to Blue Sky Retreat at San Geronimo Lodge.

We hope you’ll join us in realizing this dream together.

Love and light,
