Beautiful grounds, friendly inn staff, great breakfasts. If you make it back to the inn in time and are inclined, there is a early evening wine time. Nice wine and conversation. Easy walk to town. Nice relaxing place to stay. Dan is a great host.

Wonderfully appointed room was complete comfort. Very convenient to the Plaza and downtown restaurants. The daily breakfast was filling, and quite delicious. Afternoon Wine & Cheese hour was great for conversation & recommendation exchange among the guests and innkeeper! The gardens and grounds are beautiful.

We loved coming home to this B&B each day after being out and about in Santa Fe and Taos. Great seating area outside our room, surrounded by beautiful foliage. A great way to relax. The rooms are amazing, the breakfasts are delicious, and our hosts were so helpful and fun to talk to. Only about a 15 minute walk to... More

It is a very unique and historical place. It was the home of Witter Bynner. Stravinsky Room: Bed is very comfortable. The room and the bathroom are small, but comfortable. There is a desk for working on your computer. We was very interesting to read about Igor Stravinsky and Witter Bynner. The ground is nicely landscaped and it was pleasant... More

Thank you for the kind review Brian & Tanya. We're very glad you enjoyed your stay with us and took advantage of our free Wi-Fi on our beautiful patio. Because of our Inn's extensive steps, we always offer to assist guests with their luggage both upon check-in and check-out. Some guests, like you, prefer to handle it themselves. Others as... More

My partner and I and our dog visited this gorgeous B&B in mid July during the international folk art festival. It is about 10 mins walk to the old square, but the walk is pleasant and easy for an active traveler. The grounds of the B &B were very relaxing and nicely maintained. I loved how dog friendly the place... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Inn of the Turquoise Bear. The accommodations were excellent, Dan was a fine host, and the full breakfast in the morning was perfect. Location wise, we were just a few blocks from the main square and conveniently located to almost everything. When we return to Santa Fe we would not stay anywhere else.... More

Inn of the Turquoise Bear is perfect in every way. A beautiful setting, rooms with space and character, delicious breakfasts and a great location (close enough to walk to the Plaza, far enough to get away from the tourism). Dan is a wonderful innkeeper - fun to speak with and very helpful. We will most definitely be back to this... More

Thank you for the review Karen! Like you, our guests love our quintessential rambling adobe estate occupying an acre of terraced gardens walking distance from the historic Santa Fe plaza, Canyon Road, and Railyard. It was great chatting with you and Jonathan as you enjoyed breakfast on our flagstone patio! We look forward to your return! Happy Travels! More

Santa Fe is a beautiful place to vacation, and the Inn of the Turquoise Bear was the perfect getaway for us. The property is beautiful, and It is far enough from the plaza that it stays quiet and isn't overrun with other tourists (it's about a 15 minute walk to the plaza). Dan and Alex were friendly, courteous, and hospitable.... More
