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

Bruce and Wendi understand the word "hospitality" and use it in the operation of their inn. They pay close attention to every detail, the grounds are immaculate and the rooms are cozy and private. They furnish an evening wine and cheese appetizer along with an amazing breakfast. Presentation is exceptional. Wendi and Bruce are very friendly people and they make... More

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
