I highly recommend the Witter Bynner - a large room with a lovely balcony on the second floor overlooking the gardens and the most luxurious shower you'll ever have. The creative breakfasts each morning were most delicious and then there were the afternoon sweet tasty treats... Mmmm Mmmm. The place is clean and airy and the service impeccable. The gracious...

In august of this year we spent three nights at the Inn of the Turquoise Bear in Santa Fe, New Mexico. We would have stayed a fourth night however they had a big wedding booked on the following evening and could not accommodate our extra day.

We have stayed several times at the Inn, and have always enjoyed the accommodations, history and great location to downtown Santa Fe. This trip, we brought our dog Marie and went to the Santa Fe Opera. The inn was very gracious. A great breakfast too!

We thoroughly enjoyed our two nights at this beautiful Inn! We stayed in the Shaman room which was lovely - especially loved the the garden statue outside our window. It is the small touches like this that make this Inn so special. The breakfasts were quite tasty! I especially like that they give you a window that you can come...

Thank you for the kind review! Unlike some B&B's we like to provide our guests with flexibility at Breakfast! You are on holiday and don't necessarily know what time you'd like to have breakfast until you wake up in the morning. In addition, guests can choose to dine at our community table where there's always a stimulating conversation going on...

I have visited Santa Fe for more than 40 years. Since I discovered the Inn of the Turquoise Bear 10 years ago, it is the only place I will stay. It is truly that special! It is a wonderful and charming B&B in an historic hacienda. The rooms are all unique--it is hard to pick a favorite. The grounds and...

Turquoise Bear is my go-to place stay whenever I am in Santa Fe. Its location is perfect--a lovely walk to the plaza for lunch, museum going or shopping. Rooms are well appointed. Hosts are friendly and gracious. There's a reason why I see the same guests at the breakfasts year after year!

My stay at the Inn of the Turquoise Bear was very nice. The grounds were surprisingly beautiful and peaceful considering it is within walking distance to the downtown plaza and Canyon Road.
