I cannot possibly cover all of the remarkable ways the owner, Dan and the co-manager, Alex, make this inn the amazing success it is. They stint not at all in any way on the comforts. From the rooms, to the breakfasts, to the social wine hours in the evening!! Add to that the people who stay at this inn, not... More

The Turquoise Inn is just exquisite. My husband and I had the Ansel Adams room and although small, it's bursting with charm. Dan and Alex did a wonderful job of making us feel welcome. The food is incredible and you couldn't ask for a better location. The grounds were covered in native flowers and plants and everything was neat and... More

Our visit to this B&B was a joy. The hotel is beautiful and the room I had was totally charming. Many of the guests arrived for breakfast at 8:30 and remained chatting at the table for quite some time, obviously enjoying the conversation and the food and the specialness you hope for in a B&B.

This is a really wonderful to stay if you're traveling to Santa Fe. It's walking distance from The Plaza, but it feels like you are in a secluded mountain lodge, surrounded by tall pine trees. My partner and I spent 5 nights here in late August/early September and didn't see anything else with this type of charm so close to... More

When you arrive, you are given a short tour and are shown to your room to make sure that everything is to your liking. After a relaxing for a bit, it is nice to enjoy a little wine reception with the staff and other patrons. The hotel is a short walk to the arts district on Canyon Street and the... More

We looked forward to the breakfast each morning and to coming home from dinner and seeing if there were still any of the yummy baked goods left. Our room was very private and peaceful. There was a bit of noise from the heavy traffic after the burning of Zozabra, but once everyone made it home, it got very quiet. We... More

Our stay in the Inn of the Turquoise Bear was wonderful in every way. We were warmly greeted by our host, Alex. We stayed in the Witter Banner room -- a very large king suite with a huge sitting area, fire place, and access to a private balcony overlooking the front of the property. The bath room was located outside... More

Both Dan and Alex (owner and asst innkeeper) made us feel at home immediately upon arrival and throughout our stay. Don't miss wine in evening because we met many interesting people and Dan interacts and makes everyone feel included. The inn is a great piece of history. Breakfast was good. Room was comfortable. We stayed in the Ansel Adams room... More

We stayed at the Inn of the Turquoise Bear for a week over Labor Day. The home is one of the two best examples of pueblo revival architecture in Santa Fe, and has an interesting literary history. The property is beautiful, surrounded by a wonderful garden with spaces to escape and relax, and within easy walking distance to the plaza.... More
