We came for four nights and stayed ten! I cannot think of anywhere that has produced such fond memories. ~ ~ C & C, London

We came to the Black Bear Inn to celebrate our 5th anniversary. We loved our cabin and were pleasantly surprised to find that the inn looked even better than the online pictures. The entire inn is immaculate. Very clean and no clutter. The decor is impeccable and there is great attention to detail throughout - - it all comes together wonderfully. Love the Polo towels and handmade soap! The grounds are also very beautiful. I like all the benches and places to sit and enjoy the lush greenery. Breakfast is killer --- very delicious. Kevin and Jerry are very friendly. One of the best B&Bs we've visited thus far!
~ ~ A & E, Coloma

We have stayed in Tahoe at many locations and this by far has been the most special and the highest in ultimate hospitality. Thank you so much for a great time.
~ ~ B & M, Alameda

My brand new husband surprised me with a wedding night stay here, and boy was it just perfect. The room was so relaxing and quiet - - just what we needed after a week of hectic pre-wedding festivities. What a perfect way to start our lives together as husband and wife.
~ ~ R & G, Mountain View

What a splendid oasis you have created here in Lake Tahoe. Your attention to detail is unmatched by any of your peers. The beautiful flowers, grounds, interior design, furnishings, outstanding breakfasts and superb accommodations. What more could one ask for? The restaurants you suggested were wonderful. The day trips we selected with your help - drive around the lake, Fallen Leaf Lake and Lily Lake, trip to Yosemite - were great fun. Not to mention sailing and a great photo op at the top of the gondola. Thank you for a wonderful and memorable stay.
~ ~ B & E, Pennsylvania

Thank you for helping create a weekend we will never forget. . . she said Yes!!!
~ ~ H & C, Turlock

I come from Australia - - searching the net beforehand looking for a romantic, cozy and beautiful place to stay in Tahoe. We couldn't have asked for anything better! Would tell anyone coming here to stay only at Black Bear. Thanks for allowing us to sleep late, thanks for the magnificent breakfast New Years Day and most of all thank you for letting us find peace. I can't think of a better way to embark on a new year.
~ ~ J & B, Melbourne

We have spent over forty years visiting South Lake Tahoe. Needless to say we have experienced many different accommodations. The Black Bear Inn by far has the best rooms and the best location. It is just not too far from wherever you may wish to go. Kevin and Jerry treat us like family.
~ ~ B & A, San Jose

We are locals and Black Bear is a nice retreat to get away from normal life as we know it. We loved the room so much we never left it till breakfast!
~ ~ K & C, South Lake Tahoe

One day was not enough to truly enjoy how wonderful this inn is. The beauty of the building was only matched by the warmth and relaxation it evoked. I can't wait to come back!!
~ ~ J & T, Sacramento

We have now celebrated our first and fifth anniversary here at the Black Bear Inn. The service and stay is top notch. We will be back to celebrate another!
~ ~ J & M, Coppell TX

In German they have a word that English doesn't have the equivalent for, "Gemutlichkiet."  It means to experience a deep sense of enjoyment and comfortableness that soothes the mind and feeds the soul. You have created such a setting fed by the natural beauty of nature.
~ ~ D & I, Mapleton UT

Celebrating our ten year anniversary, we are very pleased to be spending the weekend here at the Black Bear Inn and in Lake Tahoe. The accommodations are wonderful and we have enjoyed Jerry and Kevin's hospitality. We love our room. It is very well decorated and clean and the grounds and main inn are beautiful. Thank you for providing so many wonderful amenities and a great experience. We will recommend the Black Bear Inn to our family and friends.
~ ~ D & R, Rescue

Your special place is just as warm and welcoming as we remember -- and we are so thrilled to be back! This is our first visit since we moved to Southern California. The extra traveling distance is well worth it for all the beauty, peace, comfort and fireplace glow of the Inn -- and especially of our favorite -- the Snowshoe cabin.
~ ~ S & K, Thousand Oaks CA

In all our travels, we've never had hosts as attentive to our needs or as thoughtful in making us feel at home. The environment you've created here, especially your soaring living room and the garden, is wonderful. We found your inn the perfect place not only to unwind but to explore Lake Tahoe's beauties.
~ ~ P & K, Los Angeles

We have had the most perfect honeymoon anyone could ask for! Your gracious and warm hospitality made us feel so special -- and your breakfasts were spectacular. The dinner recommendations were great -- Evan's dark chocolate raspberry creme brulee tart was excellent as was Scusa's yummy cheesy garlic bread. We are looking forward to Cafe Fiore tonight! I don't know how many times we can say thank you for everything. We will miss you guys -- and Sally and Bullet -- until we get back next year for our 1st anniversary. Thank you for making our dream honeymoon come true.
~ ~ J & P, Jacksonville

We decided last minute to drive up to Tahoe. We called Cafe Fiore and Black Bear to check availability . . . and because there was, we came up! We've been here a few times and have enjoyed the inn, the hospitality, the food and the extra details immensely. Thank you for providing such a beautiful place - what a wonderful treat!
~ ~ M & M, Alamo CA

You guys are awesome, and the Black Bear Inn is a perfect reflection of your wonderful taste and style. Even though we are "away" at Tahoe, we have never felt more at home. We want you to know that all your attention to detail did not go unnoticed, and we have already agreed that when in Tahoe, the Black Bear Inn is our home.
~ ~ R & N, Cypress CA

I grew up on the south shore of Tahoe and have stayed many places over the years here but the Black Bear far exceeds any yet! Cozy & quaint and great hosts and hostess.
~ ~ D & G, Rocklin CA

As always, I have thoroughly enjoyed my time with you all at the Black Bear Inn. Your hospitality and comfortable surroundings have always made my time in Tahoe the best.
~ ~ A. L., Austin

Thank you for providing such a cozy and inviting get-away! We love the Seneca room and all the perfect touches that Jerry and Kevin provide. The Black Bear made it impossible not to relax; it is just what we needed.
~ ~ J & C, Austin

A long overdue treat away. From the turn in off the road to the last cup of coffee this morning, we were entranced and taken to the special place we only dreamt about. We have enjoyed every moment. The Black Bear Inn sets the standard.
~ ~ P & J, Jackson

A quick escape for our anniversary weekend to Black Bear Inn was perfect in every way! Kevin and Jerry were delightful hosts. We commend them for creating such a warm and relaxing B&B. The Washoe room was filled with comfort and class. We especially enjoyed the comfy bed, wonderful after a day's hike to Eagle Lake near Emerald Bay. This was our first trip to Tahoe in the summer and we look forward to returning to the Black Bear Inn in the winter.
~ ~ K & B, Walnut Creek CA

This has been such a relaxing, carefree get-away. Thanks for a wonderful time. Your hospitality is the best. Every day we looked forward to a feast at breakfast and we were never disappointed. Looking forward to another visit. We'll have a hard time selecting which room!
~ ~ S. K., Dallas

There is no way our visit to Black Bear Inn could have been improved upon. From the minute we arrived our every need was attended to - the delicious wine and cheese, just to start things off for our 55th wedding anniversary - this lovely room - carefully selected furnishings - all immaculate! The breakfast so specially prepared and served on lovely china - handsome silverware - and different each day!
~ ~ J & B, Napa

Well done! This year we traveled the globe on business and finally found the perfect place for rest, right here at your B&B. Thank you for making us feel so at home. Everything was 5 star, we will spread the word to all our friends who are looking to escape. We look forward to seeing you again on our next trip to Lake Tahoe.
~ ~ S & K, Washington

This place is fabulous!! It was the perfect place to celebrate out 10th anniversary! Thanks for the warm, wonderful hospitality. The breakfasts are unbeatable. Jerry and Kevin, you have done a wonderful job at making this one the best B&Bs we've stayed. So cozy and comforting. We hate to leave it. I'm sure we'll be back.
~ ~ S & C, Londenberg

I have not been in many inns or hotels that have impressed me as has this one. Thanks to Jerry and Kevin (and the two lovely, affectionate dogs that greeted me in the parking area)
