We had a lovely stay at Black Bear Inn. Jerry and Kevin are kind and helpful. The inn is perfectly decorated. Our room was very clean and comfortable. We stayed in the frontier room and did not have any problems with street noise.

We stayed a few nights in one of the private cabins in the back and it was such an amazing stay. We came in a little late, so the path to our cabin was lit by little lights, making for a very grand entrance to our own private place to stay. The cabin was spacious with a beautifully done fireplace.... More

We just got back from our trip this past weekend, so this is still fresh. First, we were greeted by the very warm hosts, Jerry and Kevin. When we got to our room (Stagecoach Cabin Room), we were beyond amazed. The setup, decor, and everything is just so great! There's a fireplace as well! The location is amazing, it's literally...

Frontier room window/french door fronts on very noisy active main street. Shutting door does not shut out noise which starts early in morning and goes on all night, but does shut out air. Apparently this is not news to the owners who put a standing fan in the closet. We took out the fan and had it on all night... More

I honestly cannot say enough good things about our stay at Black Bear Inn. We stayed last labor day weekend (sorry for the delay...) for our two year wedding anniversary for two nights and our time was nothing short of perfect. We received a warm welcome upon arrival, our room was clean, cozy and comfortable. The wine and cheese hour... More

Only had one night to stay but it was wonderful! Our "room" was a cottage that had a small kitchenette. Cozy and warmed by a stone fireplace. Outside was a stone fountain that had such a lovely sound that we left the window open overnight to hear it. The cabins are arranged on the property for good privacy. There is... More

We had a wonderful stay at the Black Bear Inn. Our cabin was very nice and comfortable with everything you need. In the main house, they served breakfast every morning and had wine and cheese available every evening. The owners take great pride in their establishment and it shows. I would highly recommend the Black Bear Inn for a beautiful,... More

Having stayed once before at the Black Bear Inn, I had in mind what an enchanting place it would be for a wedding! Thinking about our daughter's weekend nuptials, I can tell you it was everything we hoped for and more! Our wedding party of nine took over all the rear cabins which included the Sutter Cabin, which was a... More

We just got back from an awesome, relaxing 4 day weekend at The Black Bear Inn. Here are my favorite parts of my stay: the fireplace in our room, having early morning coffee in the Grand Room while on my computer (free wifi), the incredibly scrumptious breakfasts, great wine & cheese every evening and great conversations with Jerry and Kevin...

The owner is super nice and the place is lush. The cabins are huge and have a kitchen area, lounge and an enormous bathroom. Well worth the bucks. Super close to Heavenly. Includes breakfast and wine and cheese in the evening. Do this now. Great for weddings as well. Just a swell laid back vibe.
