“A great find in Lake Tahoe”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 July 2005

Lake Tahoe has long been one of our favorite spots. This past June we spent a 3 day weekend at the Black Bear Inn at South Lake Tahoe. It was our first experience at the Inn. If you like to stay at a bed and breakfast, this is the place for you! It is beautiful, decorated with class and a fine eye for details, and each of the rooms has its own personality.

The location is quiet and peaceful and within walking distance to the lake and a couple of the best restaurants on the lake. Each morning you are treated to a truly gourmet breakfast. In the evening the guests mingle while enjoying wine and cheese in front of the stunning fireplace. A great find in Tahoe.

Being greeted by the owners upon arrival is special and the first indication you've arrived at a first-class B&B. Their wine & cheese hour creates an opportunity to share new wines and conversation with other guests, and in our case, led to dining that evening with people we had just met an hour before--a truly enjoyable part of our stay at the Black Bear Inn. They certainly deserve their "California Top 10 B&B" distinction awarded them! It's a beautiful inn with great breakfasts that already has us looking forward to our next visit.
