Bruce and Wendi are the absolute best at what they do. My wife and I went for her birthday/new years. We had the absolute pleasure of eating dinner prepared by Bruce. It was beyond a 5 Star meal. The whole Inn is beyond 5 Star. It's a must do by everyone.

We were reminded with this visit just how much we love this property. This was our first visit since Wendi and Bruce took over the ownership of this beautiful Inn. It has gotten even better with their loving care! The rooms are very well appointed and most comfortable. The public areas are warm and welcoming. And the food is over... More

One of the things we are very thankful this year is the opportunity to share Thanksgiving with Bruce and Wendi for the 4th year at the Black Bear Inn. We really appreciate how they value us as return customers and as friends. They track our likes and dislikes and it always amazes me that Wendi can tell out of a... More

We spent two wonderful days in Arnold, Murphys visiting family. Wendy and Bruce at the Black Bear Inn made our stay very enjoyable and relaxing. The main cabin is amazing and just to relax in our PJs on the couch visiting with the other guests was a joy. The room was awesome with a grand sleigh bed and Jaccuzzi tub.... More

My wife and I were here over Thanksgiving and it was wonderful and warm. We also celebrated our anniversary while there and enjoyed the surroundings for hiking and the country club nearby for dinner. They are located close to Murphys where we enjoyed the wine taste rooms and great food. This is the most restful, relaxing, and romantic place to... More

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
