It was a beautiful room with a lot of space and very kind hosts. The room was very nicely decorated. We felt very comfortable. We recommend this place. The cheese and wine in the afternoon was also delicious.

Bruce and Wendy are excellent hosts! Afternoon wine and cheese, morning breakfast, both included in the price, clean and comfy room, jacuzzi, big screen tv, spring water upon arrival, so much attention to detail. Look forward to returning. Great location too—close to cafes, restaurants, shops.

Black Bear Inn exceeded all our expectations. Beatiful setting, one of the most comfortable rooms I have ever stayed in. Super clean and relaxing. And the bed.... soo comfy. Everything is top- notch. The hosts are very friendly, but you also have all the privacy...More

All the rooms are on one floor. There may be a couple of steps at the entrance but don't remember. Its a lovely inn with a very attentive staff.
