Skeptical at first when my husband found lodging "on line" but when we pulled up to Black Bear.. I was intrigued, and immediately while registering I knew this was going to be a fabulous experience. And it was... Not only was the breakfast exceptional, everyone was friendly, accommodating and the other guests were also overwhelmed with the experience. We have raved, talked up the experience and referred Black Bear to everyone who will listen. Also, a special thank you for telling us the back way to the "Eagles" venue. Will be back, and you can bet there will be no other place for us to stay.. Warmly, Teresa and David Levine, St. Louis, MO

We stayed here for a romantic weekend and it was more than we could have asked for. You are a hidden gem, located so close to everything we wanted to do! Your attention to detail and your service was impeccable. Thank you ;-)

I was surprised to see a full refrigerator in the sink/kitchen area. . very nice. .. . breakfast was really delicious! Loved everything about the stay. .the outside breakfast nook by the fountain, the gracious hosts. etc. The only downside was that the room smelled a bit of cleaning solution when we arrived. Certainly we appreciate the cleanliness, but my wife is a bit sensitive to this sort of thing. Could have toned down just a bit

Our 2nd stay in September and each was was outstanding. First stay even came with a real bear! Breakfast was so good, wine "appreciation" hour was great. Owners are stellar. Location is close to everything (recommend Blue Angel Cafe - 2 blks away).

This is a wonderful place to stay. Very well maintained by the owners and hosts. who built the lodge and later the cabins 15 years ago. The grounds are immaculate, the hot tub clean and inviting, and the breakfasts were to die for. The hosts, Kevin and Jerry did more to make our 50th Anniversary stay incredible. We'll bask in our memories forever.

Looking at the picture online, we knew that Black Bear Inn is already a very nice place to stay but seeing it and staying in it is beyond expectations. Every thing is gorgeous. The feel and the look of the lodge is so exhilarating, warm, cozy, you name it. Jerry and Kevin are so accommodating including their assistant (I forgot to ask his name). From the breakfast they serve every morning to their snack at 5:00 pm is outstanding. I can't think of any negative thing to say. The place, the cottages, the inside decorations of the bedrooms and the lobby to the outside garden are outstanding. I love the antique decorations of old wagon wheel in the yard, the lanterns, the yard lights at night, the pine trees, the winding walkways to cottages, the smell of the rooms took me back to the moment in time. My husband and I stayed at the Fallen Leaf room and Oh, we love the feel of the place, the balcony overlooking the beautiful yard and winding walkways to gorgeous cottages which my daughter and son-in-law stayed (the Bart's room or cabin) in one of them. I was so sad when it was time for us to leave. I don't know about this place but it rather put me back somewhere in time. I can't sleep thinking about it the first night we're home. Even now, I can't take it off my mind. I was smitten by the place. I want every one to experience how I felt. I would definitely want to go back to Black Bear Inn. It's not the Lake Tahoe place that I want to come back but the Black Bear Inn definitely beckons me to come back again. I love the place. Any one who has doubts about this place, throw away that doubt because you'll never regret it when you'll come to stay in Black Bear Inn, believe me. Oh by the way, even their toilet paper is outstanding.

B&B owners Jerry and Kevin have created a beautiful and serene oasis. The grounds are spectacular and the food is mouth watering. The perfect location for a visit to South Lake Tahoe.

Our stay at Black Bear Inn far exceeded our expectations. Very detail was meticulously taken care of from the towels to the knick knacks perfectly placed throughout our room and the common areas. The grounds are impeccable and the service was outstanding! Breakfast was more than a treat -- we woke up looking forward to the gourmet delicacies Jerry prepared for us each day. We can't say enough great things about the Inn and its owners. Stay here. You will not be disappointed!

The breakfasts here are great and the location is good, too. You can walk to Riva's Grill and Blue Angel Cafe and a few other places from the lodge. The lodge and the grounds are beautiful.
