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!

Dennis and I just spent 5 nights in the Georgia O'Keeffe room at this beautiful bed and breakfast! We loved everything about this inn. The breakfasts that Dan prepared were simply excellent and something we looked forward to each day!

We traveled to Santa Fe with our small dog and are always particular about our accommodations for us and our dog. We stayed four nights in the Shaman Room, which is one of 4 pet-friendly rooms. The room was perfect for our small dog and us. The large room has its own exterior entrance, separate from the other rooms in... More

A wonderful B and B in a beautiful setting in Santa Fe with a short walk to the plaza. Rooms are named for various authors and artists who visited the area. Breakfast was superb with a knowledge of the area thrown in. A perfect place and a perfect trip!

My wife and I stayed for four nights a couple of weeks ago. What a wonderful B&B! The history of the property is amazing and Dan will be glad to share it with you. We liked the walk down to the plaza, although the narrow sidewalks were somewhat dim at night. This Inn is very close to some of the... More

We enjoyed 3 wonderful nights in the D.H. Lawrence room - spacious, airy, comfortable bed and plenty of space for relaxing. The house is open to guests to sit in the welcoming front living room, patios, etc., with coffee and fresh baked goodies each day. Delicious breakfasts served at lovely communal dining table - great way to start off the... More
