Northbridge, Massachusetts
Reviewed yesterday NEW

Stayed here for two nights. Dan, the Innkeeper, is a pleasure to work with. Breakfasts were very, very good, and we enjoyed chatting with the other guests in the morning. You need to be sharp-eyed when you first arrive, as there are no external signs roadside, just a little turquoise bear icon on the street number at the entrance.

We stayed 5 nights at this wonderful inn with beautiful Santa Fe architecture. Innkeeper Dan creates great gourmet breakfasts. Most important---they have pet friendly rooms. Our Corgi had a welcome bag of treats waiting for him.

Can't say enough great things about Inn of the Turquoise Bear and the innkeeper/owner Dan. I have been to Santa Fe dozens of times and have enjoyed staying at a number of places, including two well known hotels that have 4.5 star ratings on tripadvisor. But, this is the one that I am planning to return to. It is fabulous...
