We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Blackbear Guest House. We stayed 2 nights in the Osprey Room - the wall of windows offers a wonderful view of the inlet; the bed and linens were very comfortable and the claw-foot bathtub and cosy bathrobes were a treat. Jay lit a campfire for us and we were able to enjoy the sunset...

Bobby and Jay were great hosts, always giving awesome suggestions for things to go and see. Their helper Teresa was also very nice, and both ladies made unbelievable breakfast's always hot and ready when we went into the kitchen.

Family visit. Great location, peaceful, with wonderful view over the Inlet. Bobbi was great hostess, cooked and served delicious breakfasts. Spotlessly clean comfortable rooms and great to have lounge area available for sitting/talking. Felt very comfortable, welcomed and relaxed.

Our family stayed for four nights over Easter in the suite. The apartment was spacious and fully equipped with everything we could have possibly wanted, and more. The hosts, Bobbi, Jay and their young daughter, were very hospitable and knowledgable about the area.
