Beautiful estate, great hospitality. Facility has it's limits since it is 150-years old leaving some rooms without a/c. Hosts go out of their way to make you comfortable with tastey breakfasts and tempting snacks. Encountered several returning guests during our stay demonstrating the inn's on going attraction.

We had a wonderful stay at the historic Inn of Turquoise Bear. Dan was an exceptional host making sure we were comfortable and even asking for our input on breakfasts! The property is so relaxing and beautiful. For extroverts there was social time every evening where you could chat with others and their adventures of the day. The introverts could... More

Tom and I totally enjoyed our one week stay at the inn. Dan was a perfect host, a terrific cook and especially attentive when Carol did not feel well, as he cooked her a special egg breakfast. The setting was gorgeous, like something out of the past and exuding the Santa Fe atmosphere. We would highly recommend it to anyone.... More

My wife and I loved our stay here. The hosts, Dan and David could not have been more gracious. The history of the property made it an interesting place to stay. The grounds were beautiful and well maintained with plenty of scenic and peaceful places to just sit or read. Dan is a true gourmet chef and his breakfasts are... More

My husband and I booked a last minute long labor day weekend in Santa Fe, and were lucky to stumble upon this B&B thanks to awesome reviews. This place truly is magical. Dan is so wonderful! The breakfast is absolutely amazing, we planned to eat at several breakfast places in the town per recommendations, but never made it to any... More

We really enjoyed meeting the new owners at this Inn. They are very hospitable and involved with the community; they hosted a high school students' awards ceremony and reception with a mariachi band, food and drinks for all ages. Their location has plenty of parking and is an easy walk to the Plaza without having to find a hectic downtown... More

A chance booking at the last minute for our first visit to Santa Fe. We had no idea how wonderful of a choice we made. A fantastic inn with a great history. We only wish we had been able to stay more than one night. We will be back!

I stayed here for one night during a drive across the country. Gorgeous gardens, nicely decorated room, and yummy breakfast. Dan did a great job of accommodating gluten-free paleo breakfast for us, and the same morning cooked a wonderful vegan breakfast for another person. Impressive! We walked into the plaza (~20 min maybe?) for dinner at night, and the next... More

That's what we thought when we got out of the car! The grounds of this B & B are simply the most gorgeous we've ever seen (and we've seen plenty)! Nooks and crannies full of flowers and seating arrangements, tables and chairs means you can be quiet and cozy, or social and animated! We were travelling with our grown daughter... More

Recently spent three nights at the Turquoise Bear B&B in Santa Fe. The property once was the residence of the poet Witter Bynner, and the rooms are named after his famous guests. The place is beautifully unique - great rooms, gardens, breakfast and fellow guests. The hosts are very gracious. We plan to visit again in the very near future.
