We stayed here while my niece had her wedding at the inn. Wendy and Bruce were very friendly, helpful and warm. The grounds were absolutely perfect for her wedding and the reception. Our room was beautiful and so comfortable! Our doors opened out onto the grass area where the reception was held, which was perfect for raising a few glasses... More

Bruce and Wendi have continued to expand the fun ways to enjoy the inn and Bruce's cooking. This was a barbecue weekend with a set price for two nights and the barbecue dinner. The inn continues to be updated with lots of things including a new stove and refrigerator and I can't wait to see the new marble counter tops.... More

Amazing! The B&B is exquisite and the areas nearby are unique and fun excursions for the casual traveler who wants to enjoy peace, quiet and a slower pace. Wendi and Bruce make you feel at home and the food is delish! You will not regret staying here.

From arrival to departure our stay was once again excellent. Owners are friendly and make you feel at home. Food is outstanding. Rooms are beautiful and comfortable. I never like B&Bs before but this one is everything most aren't. Absolutely lovely!

We arrived after we had planned and in the evening, and the owners were waiting for us, worried that something had befallen us. They had even called earlier in the evening to check on us (we were in an area with no cell service). That concern and personal attention characterized the Black Bear Inn. It's a beautiful spot with nice... More

Our May wedding at the Black Bear Inn was perfect in every way. Wendi could not do enough for us and helped us with all the details that make a great wedding. When there was a problem or a question we called Wendi and she took care of it. Chef Bruce was in a zone and put together one of... More

My son surprised me with a gift certificate to this beautiful inn for my birthday. It was the best gift EVER! Each room feels like you are in your own little cabin as they all have doors directly to the parklike grounds. The rooms are great, but the bathrooms are amazing. We were truly impressed with every aspect of our... More

We stayed here for 1 night over Easter and thoroughly enjoyed it. Initially I was a little open mouthed at the price but it was 100% worth it, everything was quality. We especially liked the complimentary glass of wine from a local vineyard so much that we went there next day and bought 6 bottles. We were on our way... More
