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.

We stumbled upon this wonderful B&B and we were so lucky! The property was beautiful, our room was big and comfortable and Dan the innkeeper was incredible!!! I am not sure what we liked best??? The breakfast, the wine on the porch or Dan's great tips of what to do and eat. You can walk to everything or stay local... More

Dan, the proprietor, is an innkeeper extraordinaire. In addition to being a fabulous cook, he has gone to great lengths to think of every little thing a traveler might need for comfort and convenience. From the sumptuous breakfasts to the flower-filled gardens gardens with plenty of outdoor gathering places to my well appointed room (St. Vincent Millay) I thoroughly enjoyed... More

We have been coming to the Inn of the Turquoise Bear for years and were sad to see that the Inn had been sold to new owners. But our fears were misplaced because the Inn is as fun and welcoming as ever with the addition of new upgrades. Dan is a terrific host and he has wisely kept the old... More

When we came there I was completely unprepared to what I saw - an old adobe house in a beautiful garden, surrounded with pines and flowers. The rooms have separate entrances and are small, not very comfortable according to modern standards, but this place is so special I would never exchange it for modern comfort. Plus, the size of the... More
