The inn is like an oasis in the middle of crowded Santa Fe. We have stayed there twice, both times we have had Sophie, our newfie, along. The rooms are very cozy, breakfast was great, and it's a short walk to the square. I highly recommend it.

My sister and I spent three nights at this beautiful property. We had booked the Ansel Adams room but when we got there, Dan upgraded us to the O'Keeffe room as we were staying three nights during the week and he thought we would enjoy having more space. That was particularly fitting as we had just spent four days at... More

So enjoyed our stay! Hospitality excellent, breakfast out of this world and what a lovely setting. The historic Santa Fe architecture was a real treat. The stroll to the historic square was just the right distance to feel that one had gained a bit of exercise. It was nice being close but not in the middle of all the tourist... More

The Inn is just perfect, beautiful, clean, friendly, and romantic! Dan and Alex are the best! We stayed in the Witter Bynner room and it was huge, with a king-sized bed, fireplace, front porch, and wonderful bath. The breakfasts were delicious and big so we didn't eat again till dinner! Wine hour was a treat! We got to meet some... More

My husband and I recently celebrated our anniversary in Santa Fe and really enjoyed our accommodations at the inn. The owners, Dan and David, were extremely knowledgable about the area and gave us great suggestions for things to do. They also prepared a fabulous breakfast every morning. We stayed in the Witter Bynner room which was quite spacious and had... More

I found the Inn of the Turquoise Bear, and was just enamoured with the history of the place. This B&B is the former home of Brooklyn-born Witter Bynner, a translator and poet, who moved to Santa Fe in the 1920's. Several of his friends stayed overnight while visiting, since there wasn't much of a town then. Friends like Georgia O'Keeffe,... More

We absolutely loved this B&B! It was fantastic. I had trouble finding a room that would fit us since we have 4 people. I left a voice mail for the owner, Dan, and he called me back within the hour with the perfect room. The room was gorgeous, decorated beautifully and with tons of character. The furnishings were super comfortable... More

We absolutely loved our time at the Inn! We stayed here at the end of a week long road trip and it was the perfect ending to our vacation. Dan and David are excellent hosts - We will definitely book here again next time we make it to Santa Fe!

We had such a lovely time at the Inn of the Turquoise Bear. The food was delicious and the hospitality even better! The location was nice in that it was near town, but settled in a nice quiet neighborhood. Great choice for couples!

We had a wonderful visit at this gorgeous inn. We stayed in the Shaman room with blooming lilacs outside our large window. Stunning property, fantastic breakfast and afternoon treats, and welcoming staff. Great time! Thank you, Dan!
