Origin at Rancho de San Juan’s 5,700-square-foot retreat center provides many options for those seeking solace or adventure in this celebrated high-country desert playground between Santa Fe and Taos, NM. Our rooms are luxuriously appointed and each has a beautiful private portal complete with outdoor dining and hammock. The rooms surround a central courtyard and an adjacent main house with common areas and abundant outdoor dining areas and patios. Delight in the expanse of the sunset views or watch the sun make its way across the intricate badlands in the early morning. Rooms have private kiva fireplaces adjacent to an indoor dining table, large, light filled private bathrooms will wash away the cares of a day well spent with your private teacher.
The common retreat spaces include a living room with extra-high ceilings and beautiful beams. A stunning fireplace on the uniquely earthen plaster walls provides warmth and character to the large gathering space. Suede sectional sofa and reading chairs will delight all who seek solace or conversation here. The common dining area seats up to 20 guests. Just off the dining room is a peaceful patio. We also have a state of the art yurt with the capacity for 20 outstretched yoga mats and a teacher platform, surrounded by a raised wooden deck with abundant views.
The private gated community on hundreds of acres offers a unique and protected glimpse into some of the most notorious countryside in the area, known as Georgia O’Keefe country. Deep blue skies, jaw-dropping sunsets and serenity prevail as you make yourself at home in this veritable stillpoint, surrounded by neighboring river valley and towering mesa tops.
Inspiration is assured, whether you’re intrigued by local petroglyphs, hot springs, hiking, biking, art tours or historic study of native inhabitants of the valley. Abiquiu Lake calls to outdoor and fishing enthusiasts as does the nearby Taos Ski Valley.

“Everything about Origin ‘whispers’ relaxation. From the gorgeous sunset views to the hammock and aromatherapy oils in the room, all stress melts away here. The people are extremely friendly and will cater to your needs. They go out of their way to make you feel at home and stay relaxed. The cave is also very amazing, where time seems to stand still. I highly recommend staying here and will always treasure the experience.” – Brian M, Hickory Creek, Texas Casita Black Mesa October, 2015
