I have visited Santa Fe for more than 40 years. Since I discovered the Inn of the Turquoise Bear 10 years ago, it is the only place I will stay. It is truly that special! It is a wonderful and charming B&B in an historic hacienda. The rooms are all unique--it is hard to pick a favorite. The grounds and... More

This is the best B&B we have stayed at to date! Dan,David(owners) and Alex(manager) were wonderful hosts and could not have been more accommodating. From the wonderful breakfasts that are freshly prepared every morning to the evening wine with yummy treats to end your day. We brought our furry babies and they were treated to special cookies and a wonderful... More

Our stay at the Inn of the Turquoise Bear was great. They have a big patio for relaxing with coffee in the morning, and a glass of wine during happy hour. The rooms are comfortable and spacious. They have wine in the lobby after 5 pm, snacks out for the taking. A big  communal breakfast table with fruit, yogurt, a... More

Turquoise Bear is my go-to place stay whenever I am in Santa Fe. Its location is perfect--a lovely walk to the plaza for lunch, museum going or shopping. Rooms are well appointed. Hosts are friendly and gracious. There's a reason why I see the same guests at the breakfasts year after year!

My stay at the Inn of the Turquoise Bear was very nice. The grounds were surprisingly beautiful and peaceful considering it is within walking distance to the downtown plaza and Canyon Road. The front patio is wonderful to sit on and visit with other guests or spend time alone any time of the day, from early morning to the evening... More

This is a great base for hiking, shopping, opera, everything. A nice, big patio for relaxing with coffee in the morning, and a glass of wine during happy hour. I really enjoyed the other guests and our host, Dan. Comfortable rooms and spacious lobby, often with cookies or pie set out for the taking: the blueberry lemon chess pie was... More

My room was located adjacent to a wonderfully shaded patio where many of the guests gathered through the day. This may seem to be a bother due to loud conversations, and it would be a most inns, but the thick adobe walls of the inn kept noises out of my sleeping quarters. The fellow guests are as much a draw... More

rooms that are on one level--away from main house-- (older section) would be more comfortable than in newer section. Also, be prepared to carry luggage upstairs due to no elevators. The bed was not the greatest---okay for one person but 2 was crowded.

We've been staying at the Inn during opera season for 15+ years. Beautiful and relaxing gardens; fascinating part of Santa Fe cultural history; great breakfasts; helpful and friendly hosts and staff; and a short walk to the Plaza. Best part is the interesting mix of guests the Inn attracts. Discussions at breakfast and during the evening wine and cheese hour... More

We so enjoy our guests who return year after year. It's like a family reunion when you, Vaughn and our other returning guests arrive! Opera season in Santa Fe is very special. We love the opera reviews each morning at the breakfast table and the conversations on our patio! Thank you for the kind review Jim! We look forward to... More
