The room was beautiful and since we were unable to to enjoy the wine and cheese that is offered Bruce made... More

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

My husband and I spent the 4th of July at the Black Bear Inn. It is a beautiful, cabin feel Inn tucked away off a side street in Arnold. The Inn and rooms are well appointed with everything you would need for a relaxing stay. We loved having wine and cheese in the gathering room before heading out for the... 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

This is the 2nd year in a row we have booked the whole Inn for a weekend getaway with a group of friends from the Bay Area. What an excellent place to relax, unwind, and be pampered by our hosts! Can't say enough about the food, facilities and hospitality, and Wendi and Bruce have now become our friends too. We... More

Our third time back at the Black Bear Inn and it is still spectacular. A beautiful 5 guest room B&B with the most friendly and accommodating hosts. Not to mention the outstanding breakfasts and afternoon wine and cheese. We came up with 4 other couples from the Bay Area and had a wonderful time. I look forward to many more... More

This was the perfect getaway for my husband's and my 34th anniversary. The proprietors Wendi and Bruce couldn't have been nicer. Breakfast in the morning, a selection of wine and cheeses in the evening, all accommodated to my food allergies. They had great ideas about how to spend our time in the area, which they knew really well, even to... More
