This is not our first stay at Black Bear and it certainly will not be our last. This is a favorite destination of ours ever since our first stay for our 10th wedding anniversary. It's classy, clean, and just the right amount of privacy. Wendi and Bruce are always there if you need them, for that last minute reservation or... More

We were suppose to stay in downtown Murphys, but a nice lady we met at Murphys suggested this B&B instead. She guaranteed me and my husband that this was a better choice. We've never been to Arnold so we were not sure what to expect. What a beauty!! We were greeted by a very gracious and friendly lady who happens... More

Enjoyed our stay immensely. Wished it were longer. The breakfast was perfect and plentiful. Took long walks among the trees at Calaveras big trees state park. Picked up fresh apple donuts at the apple stand on hwy 4. The hot tub outside was devine. Looking up at the stars. I would definitely return.

I had my birthday at this charming B&B and could not ask for more. Besides the beautifully appointed rooms with wonderful views and very, very nice bathrooms, besides a very nice simple but very elegant interior of the great room, proprietor’s attention to every detail made our stay and my birthday celebration very special. Wendi and Bill are wonderful hosts... More

This is a great spot to unwind, as we did, in the Sierras. Bruce and Wendie go out of their way to make sure you are welcome and that your time with them is restful. You must be sure and remain before dinner for their cheese and wine presentation; you will be amazed. Do not miss breakfast; the two of... More

This will be the third year we had Thanksgiving at the Black Bear Inn and this time we treated ourselves to a whole week. We came home VERY relaxed and happy! They say this is a bed and breakfast, but you really need to arrange for Bruce to cook dinner as well. Ask for what you want and he can... More

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at the Black Bear Inn! Wendy and Bruce have done a wonderful job with the place. The wood ceiling in the great room is beautiful! My room, the Tuscany, was so much nicer than it looked on the website, and it looks good on their website. I loved my little fireplace I could turn on... More

We went up to enjoy the mountains for hiking and fall coloring watching. We've gone to this area for years, but we decided to give the Black Bear Inn a try for the first time. It's a beautiful property, and Wendi and Bruce really know how to take care of you. From helping us pick a winery for our picnic... More

I contacted Wendi at the Black Bear Inn to arrange an anniversary surprise for my husband. She helped me with every tiny detail and went above and beyond for us! When I asked her for a recommendation of a local masseuse, she gave me three names, and listed her top recommendation. The plans were made in complete secret, and my... More

Wendi and Bruce hosted our Wedding at the Arnold Black Bear Inn on October 19, 2013. It was the absolute best day of my life! With the most amazing man by my side, we couldn't be happier to have chosen the Black Bear Inn as our venue to celebrate our union. From the intimate ceremony in the picturesque lower meadow... More
