We celebrated my husband's birthday at the Black Bear Inn and it was a lovely, and just what we needed. The place is extremely clean and comfortable and the ambiance is beautiful. Bruce and Wendi were attentive and genuine. They really know and love what they do. They prepare delicious homemade breakfasts with fresh, local ingredients. The room was cozy... More

We've stayed at the Black Bear Inn for anniversary getaways and they keep raising the bar. The great room remodel, the in-room furnishings, the open kitchen, everything. Highway 4 is much less crowded and urbanized than other Sierra roads, yet the standard of construction, furnishings and hospitality at the Inn are on par with anything we've seen anywhere in the...

We had another wonderful anniversary celebration at The Arnold Black Bear Inn! Bruce always prepares a wonderful meal, if requested. And the breakfast each morning is the Best! We used to travel to the coast, but this has now become our favorite B&B!. Wendi & Bruce will truly take care of details. Thanks Wendi and Bruce!

Black Bear Inn is definitely at the top of the list of the B&B's we've visited. Here's why - Wendi and Bruce went out of their way to make us comfortable. The place is beautiful and immaculately clean. The room (Bordeaux) was spacious, well appointed, and cozy. Bruce is a professional chef, and a damn fine one at that. Breakfasts... More

This is our third stay at the Inn. Bruce & Wendi always make you feel at home in their home. The breakfasts are fantastic and always when you requested them. The dinner we had was perfect plus so were the afternoon appetizers, cheese and wine. Always something different! This us a unique Inn and one you will not be sorry... More

This is my first TripAdvisor review. I'm somewhat reluctant to write this review because I would like to be able to easily book this place in the future. My husband and I stayed at the inn for 12 nights in August. We picked this inn because of its location in the sierra foothills, proximity to day trip activities, limited number... More

Set in an incredible woodland wonder. Bruce & Wendy best of hosts and chefs. Easily could just sit and admire their grounds and incredible décor. The rooms are private and outfitted for the best of stays. Do not miss Caliveras Big Tree park. While you could easily never leave the inn, there is such a bounty of wilderness that should... More

Quite, beautiful grounds, when entering the front door and seeing the living room I was taken back with its granduear. Wendi and Bruce were perfect hosts and great cooks. The bedroom and bath were huge and well done, opening onto a patio and very green lawn. Books 3 nights in December!

My partner and I chose to spend our 30th Anniversary at the Black Bear Inn because we wanted a trip to the mountains and the online reviews for the Inn were stellar. It's hard to write a review for the Black Bear Inn without sounding like an advertisement. It's beautiful, impeccably clean and the food is outstanding. The proprietors, Wendi... More
