      Seclusion in Santa Fe!

      The Inn of the Turquoise Bear is a secluded retreat in the heart of Santa Fe!

      From the moment we pulled onto the property, the blissfulness and charm hit us head on. Only located about a 10 minute walk from the square, when on property you can disappear and relax from the day-to-day bustle of life! Whether it be relaxing in a hammock, walking the gorgeous grounds, or retreating to your room for a nap - slowing down is almost a must!

      We arrived several hours prior to check-in and fortunately Dan (the Inn's owner) had our room ready. The Spud Johnson room is their stand-alone room located apart from the main house. The room is not huge, but more than adequate for our needs. It has a huge walk-in shower, comfortable bed and fireplace sitting area which would be more enjoyed on a nice cold fall or winter evening! There is also a hammock right out front! One thing of note on this particular room is that because it is standalone, it has a dedicated water heater which is on the small side. We never had an issue, but for 2 people to get solid hot showers you may need to wait 20 minutes or so between cleanses.

      Our room did not have a fridge (I do not believe any of them do), but there is a small fridge in the main house where guests can store items - we put white wine and water in there. They also provide complimentary water bottles for refill during your stay so that you can stay hydrated!

      As the property is dog friendly, we had Lily, our Australian Shepherd with us. Dan & Alex had a welcome package for her, dog bowls and even a bed! We also had our 16 month old son with us. He too was welcomed with open arms!

      Every day in the main lounge Dan & Alex have some sort of homemade treat available. When we arrived there were left over lemon bars from the day prior and by mid-afternoon there was a chocolate chess pie which was to die for! The second day was a cherry crisp - not too sweet, not too tart, just perfect!

      One of the many highlights of the stay was the complimentary wine happy hour from 5 - 6'ish pm. They have white and red wine available in the wine or on the lounge. Meeting and chatting with the other guests was fantastic - we met some very interesting folks! Of note - there is also a liquor store a short 3 minute walk up the street should you desire to keep happy hour going into the evening!!!

      Perhaps THE highlight of the property, next to the charm, hospitality, treats and wine is the breakfast! Every morning from 7:30 - 9:30 you can dine at your leisure in the dining room, on the patio, or they will even bring you breakfast in bed! There is a help yourself juice, yogurt, bread and fruit bar. Dan or Alex start you with a small different smoothie each morning and then you can choose your main dish. They try and alternate between sweet and savory on the menu - the first morning we had a frittata which was fantastic and the second day was lemon-ginger waffles. If the featured main is not for you they also offer eggs any way or huevos rancheros (highly recommended to try!).

      Truth be told, I am struggling to find too many, if any, negatives here - having the Inn of the Turquoise Bear as home base for my Father's Day weekend really made our Santa Fe experience one to remember! It really is a slice of seclusion in Santa Fe!

      Stayed here last week for 2 nights, myself and my dog. The grounds were beautiful and the breakfast was even better. Our stay started with a very warm welcome, dog treats, now,s and. Bed were waiting in the room. The room was very relaxing, very comfy bed and pillows.
      The wine in the evening was a great way to meet our host and other guests. Walking distance to the Plaza was a plus since parking can be hard to find.
      Hammocks and chairs scattered among the grounds added to the relaxing atmosphere

      Nit many places will tell you that a dog crate not needed and that off leash is ok while on the grounds.

      I will definitely be staying here again when I head back to Santa Fe.

      This place was perfect for us!! The hosts were very friendly and very pet friendly as well--they have several pets. They set us up to stay in the Coach House, which is separate from the rest of the building and so perfect in case your dog gets into a barking mood for some reason. We also really appreciated the excellent breakfast, fireplace, wine and cheese, cookies, etc. Excellent!
