The Black Bear Inn is wonderful! The grounds, cabins and rooms are beautiful! The afternoon wine and cheese is so much more. That is if you are still hungry after the huge breakfast. Jerry and Kevin are the nicest hosts. They make everyone feel at home. They encourage guests to relax and enjoy! Take their advise and let them book...

The Inn is situated away from the lake but has high quality rooms and amenities. I wish we could say the same for the staff at the Inn. We had a horrible experience. The staff was rude and was completely inappropriate towards us. The staff member had a temper which was out of control. They raised their voice several times....

The Huge Timber Beams and a Gorgeous Stone Fireplace sets the tone for this amazing Lodge.The naturalistic style carries through to the exterior. The gardens are lush with a natural stone waterfall .I have not stopped talking...

Fist class all the way in everything- what else can you say? Jerry and Kevin have created the ultimate experience in a Bed & Breakfast.

We are in a group of dermatologists who ski and study in some of the nicest places in the world. This time (on the advice of Phil Humphries) we stayed at the Black Bear Inn and were delighted.

The Black Bear Inn is a fantastic B&B that I would HIGHLY recommend for anyone that loves a beautiful room, wonderful food and fantastic hosts.

We loved our three night stay at the Black Bear Inn and won't stay anywhere else when we go to Tahoe. We stayed in the Black Bart room and found Jerry and Kevin to be delightful hosts. Upon our arrival Jerry told us about the wine and cheese that would be served from 5-6 in the main lodge. What an...

We stayed at Black Bear Inn August 8-11, 2008. What an absolutely perfect get-away from the hot August days of summer in Texas. From the moment we arrived until our too-soon departure, all was exactly as we had hoped. The breakfast each morning was not only to-die-for but picture perfect too! And the wine and hors d'oeuvres gathering in the...
