They know Santa Fe very well and have great suggestions. The Inn is a historic property in Santa Fe and is beautifully maintained and decorated....

This place is so stinking cute. Each room has a distinct character and charm, which makes you want to try them all. We stayed for a night (unfortunately only one) in one of the dog-friendly rooms on a road trip from San Francisco to Chicago. Road weary, we arrived to find cozy rooms equipped with fireplaces, and in our case...

My second Trip to the Wonderful Inn of the Turquoise Bear did NOT disappoint. This time I got to spend the holiday there and it was truly magical. The great part about the Inn is it provides a place to relax and do absolutely nothing, and then just get up and walk down town or drive to the many museums...
