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

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

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)
