The Black Bear Inn is the best bed and breakfast I have ever stayed in. Jerry and Kevin made our stay absolutely wonderful and we will definitely be back to the Black Bear Inn!

We have stayed here for birthdays, anniversaries and just because we wanted to get away. We love it and want to go back when there is a lot of snow on the ground - the fireplace and hot tub are great!

Beautiful Lodge

3.6 on October 01, 2014

The Black Bear Inn is a beautiful alpine style lodge that looks as if it has just arrived from Austria and far exceeds the photos on the website. Huge extremely comfy beds, lovely breakfasts, excellent cheese & wine each evening and in the nicest part of South Lake Tahoe. Would recommend without hestitation.

Excellent In Every Way

5 on September 29, 2014

My partner and I have stayed at this most excellent location several times over the past few years, and had the opportunity to stay once again this past weekend. I am a lifelong traveler, and this is by far one of the best locations I've ever experienced anywhere on the planet. The cabins are perfectly decorated and spotlessly maintained. The grounds are beyond beautiful, and provide the most relaxing experience imaginable. And if all that weren't enough, the breakfasts are among the best meals I've ever had. Jerry and Kevin and their staff are the most gracious, warm, and welcoming hosts, and ensure that every detail is first class. I could not recommend the Black Bear Inn more highly, and encourage anyone considering a stay here to just do it. You won't be sorry.

Black Bear Inn - excellent

5 on September 27, 2014

We initially intended to stay at the Black Bear Inn 3 day and since we enjoyed our stay so much we changed our plans and stayed 2 more days. The owners, Kevin and Jerry, have created a warm and relaxing atmosphere. Perfect if part of your vacation plans are to decompress. Both Kevin and Jerry are very kind and make the perfect hosts. We looked forward every morning to the delicious gourmet breakfast. We will return to and highly recommend the Black Bear Inn.

Lake Tahoe south shore

4.2 on September 22, 2014

Never visiting Lake Tahoe we had no idea on the differences between the shores. The south shore is more commercial and has a touristy feel, but the Black Bear Inn provided the Lake Tahoe retreat feel we were looking for. The grounds are beautiful and the inn is outstanding with the massive fireplace in the great room and our room was warm and cozy. Jerry and Kevin were great hosts and I would recommend their inn to any of my friends. The breakfast was gourmet and the wine and cheese selection in the afternoon was good.

Outstanding Inn!
