We spent just one night here on a recent visit to South Lake Tahoe. Would have loved to spend longer, but they were fully booked. The owners were incredibly friendly and interesting to talk to. The inn itself is a delight - loved the design of the building and could have spent hours looking at the amazing furniture. They've obviously... More

Jerry and Kevin have truly created a B&B with all the charm and personality you would expect from a first class retreat. My husband and I wanted someplace to celebrate our 6th anniversary and the Black Bear Inn fits the ticket. The breakfast is sumptuous and filling often with fresh baked bread and creative egg dishes. Sunday has eggs benedict.... More

Beautiful B&B! Jerry & Kevin are very welcoming, accommodating (e.g. willingly adapt to dietary needs), and have wonderful recommendations on where to go and what to do in the immediate area (and beyond!). Located away from the hustle and bustle of the main drag, but within walking distance to the marina and restaurants. As a plus, there is a great... More

The Black Bear Inn is a wonderful inn - it's beautifully appointed, very clean and fun to inhabit. Kevin was nice enough to let us see other rooms during our stay, and they all look fantastic! Get a cabin for the ultimate in luxury. The breakfast is wonderful! The menu changes every day - even on an extended stay you... More

It you are traveling to the Lake Tahoe area, you need to check out the Black Bear Inn. Located on the California side of Lake Tahoe on Ski Run Blvd., and this property is just amazing. The gardens were beautiful, the main lodge majestic. We stayed in one of the cabins, which are beautifully furnished, and cozy. Our cabin had... More

Decided to take a last minute drive up to Tahoe for the night. Wanted to stay somewhere new to us so looked on Trip Advisor for a Bed and Breakfast. Stopped in at Black Bear Inn and they had a couple of rooms they showed us. Stayed in the Sequoia Room. It was very large, nicely furnished with a sitting... More

This little inn is not bad at all and I'm sure many people will like it. It just failed us on the temperature control and snooty breakfast policy. We were there in the winter to snowboard at the nearby Heavenly Resort (truly Heavenly) and it's really hard to get a consistent temperature in the room as it's either fireplace on... More
