The Inn of the Turquoise Bear has a rich history. The former home of noted American poet Witter Bynner became a bed and breakfast in 1996. Current owners Dan Clark and David Solem purchased it in April 2014. Dan is the innkeeper, while David maintains a psychotherapy practice. The historic house set on an acre and surrounded by towering Ponderosa pines, rock terraces and lush gardens, is just a short walk from downtown Santa Fe. The inn, decorated in traditional Northern New Mexico style, offers 10 bedrooms, all but one with a wood burning fireplace. The Witter Bynner Room, can be turned into a two-room suite. Breakfast combines buffet continental offerings including cereals, breads, house-baked goods, fresh seasonal fruit, yogurt, and juice. In addition, there's also a "multi-course gourmet plated breakfast" served daily. Don't like the plated entrée? They'll whip up eggs, any style, for you.
