Phenomenal experience. Attention to detail. Luxurious robes! Fabulous food. Beautiful grounds and perfect walking distance to town. I have absolutely nothing negative to say about this inn. It is probably the favorite B&B I've ever stayed at.

I wouldn't stay anywhere else in Santa Fe. Incredible daily breakfast and wine at 5:00, and Dan and Alex are hosts you'll want to hug when you finally have to leave. Only 11 rooms on an acre of land with free parking. Spend time alone or with other guests.

Inn of the Turquois Bear was amazing. Great location within walking distance of restaurants and Santa Fe Plaza. We stayed a several B&B's in New Mexico and this was by far the best. Dan is an amazing cook and provided an excellent breakfast that included a delicious smoothie of the day. Can't wait to return!

Thank you for the review Laurie! We enjoyed having you and Jason stay with us. Many of our guests enjoy that we are a short walk to Santa Fe's historic Plaza and Canyon Road but feel like they are at a retreat with our towering pines and mountain views!

This Inn is absolutely the best! The history of The Inn of the Turquoise Bear surrounds you, all the famous artists and writers who have been here, the old adobe structure whispers stories. Alex is a wonderful and friendly host, and his breakfasts are awesome, heuvos rancheros, my addiction. Lovely treats through the day and wine at 5. Comfy beds...

It was difficult leaving Santa Fe and the Inn of the Turquoise Bear. The inn is quiet and beautiful and the decor classic Santa Fe. Alex, the assistant innkeeper, is friendly, courteous and so knowledgeable about the area. He is also an incredible baker and we enjoyed home baked cookies and pie during our stay. We will definitely return.

We stayed five nights here in April, in the Stravinsky room. Outstanding property with a beautiful house with a nice back-story to it. Alex is one of the best innkeepers i've ever encountered, very friendly and welcoming and seemingly knows every attraction and restaurant within 50 miles. It's a very welcoming place, with outstanding breakfasts and a very nice cocktail...

Lovely place that is peaceful, serene and beautiful. Away from the business but close for walks into town. The breakfasts are heavenly, innkeepers are awesome and it is a delight! Both Dan and Alex were accommodating to our dietary restrictions. And each morning a new little smoothie was delicious!

Charming place with extraordinary history-- absolutely lovely and quiet, but steps away from downtown Santa Fe. The elegant and warm dining room was the perfect spot for a breakfast with many options.
