Honeymoon Haven

5 on July 08, 2014

From the toast to every special touch, Black Bear Inn made our honeymoon an experience we would want to repeat. The Inn Keepers deliver a first class stay with cozy rooms, a fantastic breakfast and advice on where to go to make the most of your visit. The beauty of the grounds are as relaxing as the beds, hot tub and daily cheese and wine hour! The location is close to everything and yet nestled in a quiet oasis just down the street from the hustle and bustle...Loved every part of our stay!

Fantastic stay at the BBI!

The Black Bear Inn is a wonderful inn - it's beautifully appointed, very clean and fun to inhabit. And the breakfast is wonderful! The menu changes every day - even on an extended stay you won't get tired of that wonderful breakfast. The wine and cheese hour is a very nice touch - sitting out on their patio or in the garden after a full day of sight seeing was simply wonderful. Thanks to Jerry and Kevin!

Heavenly oasis

My wife found this place because she wanted something romantic and the Black Bear Inn exceeded even her expectations. The tranquility of the grounds and the quaintness of the rooms is unmatched. So superior to almost any hotel, especially ones in the heart of activity, assuming that you're looking for peace and quiet. The staff is very friendly and you may tend to think of them as family if you stay even a few days. Whenever we are in Tahoe from now on, we won't want to stay anywhere else. We would live at the Black Bear Inn if it were possible.
