The Inn of the Turquoise Bear was the perfect place for our recent Santa Fe wedding. Inn Keeper, Dan Clark and his entire staff welcomed us with masked grace and kindness. Their entire property is quiet, beautiful and inviting. Our room, the Ivor Stravinsky was subtle in southwestern elegance. Daily breakfast served fresh on the patio was varied, delicious and a filling way to start our day. Their guest information of the Santa Fe area is comprehensive and vast. While the property is located within walking distance of the Plaza and Canyon Road, you feel secluded as in a mountain cabin. We would highly recommend this Inn for a Santa Fe stay.

Property's Favorite Review
My wife and I cannot say enough great words about this wonderful place and the gracious owners! We discovered it on the web (a great website, by the way!) and, even though a bit above our average hotel pricing, we decided to take a chance and book there! What a great decision it was! We thoroughly enjoyed the historic value of the property and the famous people who have inhabited the rooms there over the years, including Bea Arthur, who wintered in our room! The gourmet breakfasts (prepared by the owner, Dan, or the Assistant manager, Alex) were out of this world! The wine parties at 5:00 PM on the patio were so much fun. We met some great people and had so much enjoyment hearing their stories and where they have been and where they were they were going. This place was like magic - bringing people together, making weary travelers feel like they were home and so comfortable. The decor was enticing and interesting, as was the architecture. This place is like an opus - flowing, smooth, connected and grand! Colors, design, people coming together to form relationships, exploring a fantastic and cultured city... who could ask for more?? If you book a room or event here, you won't regret it! A jewel in Santa Fe - a city filled with jewels... including turqouise! 8^)

I've traveled extensively Tom and always enjoyed staying at small lodging and B&Bs because I found the guests more interested in engaging with others. This is part of our philosophy and what I wanted to create at the Bear. I'm delighted in your comment: "This place was like magic - bringing people together, making weary travelers feel like they were home and so comfortable" as this is our primary goal. We enjoyed meeting you and Irene and are thrilled you enjoyed your stay. Thank you for staying with us and for sharing your experience with others by posting here.

This was our second stay at the Inn of the Turquoise Bear in beautiful Santa Fe, New Mexico. We absolutely fell in love with the Inn the first time around and it certainly didn't disappoint the second time as well!! Every detail that I had requested was perfect. As we were celebrating our anniversary I had asked for wine, a gluten free cake and flowers for the room. I am not exaggerating when I say that Dan and Alex obtained for me the best gluten free cake that I've ever had for our celebration, (from Chocolate Maven if your looking for a great cake-they can do any of their cakes gluten free). They also picked me up a bottle of the best tasting Cabernet which we ended up taking to a family dinner, it was gone in minutes- delish! The flowers of course were perfect the perfect blend with a southwestern flare! ....But its so much more than all this! They make you feel so welcome! Alex knows all the ins and outs, where to find exactly what treasures you are looking for, the best places to hike and sight see. They even have maps and day adventures that they've put together for their guest! So much more than I have ever experienced at any other bed and breakfast. To top it off the beds are so comfortable; sheets to die for. The breakfast was delicious every morning! They even went out of their way to make special treats for me with my gluten allergy- delicious zucchini bread. We are already planning and looking forward to our next stay! We will never stay anywhere but Inn of Turquoise Bear!

I very much enjoyed my stay, there is so much history and the grounds are beautiful. It is close enough to walk to the plaza and great restaurant options. I wish I could have stayed for the breakfast - hopefully next time.

Thank you for posting your review Keith! We enjoyed having you stay with us during your business trip, if even for just one night. In the era of COVID travel with some guests concerned about dining, we've added the option to stay at our Inn without breakfast. Ask any guest and they'll tell you our innovative comfort cuisine is not to be missed, but we know when traveling for business that's not always preferred. Thank you for staying with us! We're delighted you enjoyed your stay with us!

We only stayed one night at the Inn of the Turquoise Bear, but wish we had stayed longer. The proprietor was gracious, informative, and warm. His thoughtful, guest-exclusive restaurant recommendations did not disappoint. Our room, the second-floor’s D.H. Lawrence, was so picturesque and cozy. Books abound, mid-day homemade desserts, and souvenir water bottles to take home pushed this locally-owned B&B to the top. The breakfast was spectacular and the courtyard was so tranquil with its mature trees, peaceful fountains, and gorgeous flowers. We will be back!
