“Excellent as Usual”
Reviewed 8 July 2012

This is our third stay at the Black Bear Inn and it's always a fantastic trip. The new Arnold Rim Trail is very close and extremely well maintained. Wine and cheese in the afternoon and a delicious breakfast are nice bookends for the day.

Beautiful setting. Relaxing atmosphere. Our hosts were truly professional. Delicious breakfast,afternoon wine & cheese and homemade cookies by Wendi. Can't wait to take cooking classes from Bruce.
Our hosts could not be more accomodating. This is an exceptional Inn and we would highly recommend staying here.

We had a wonderful Experience at the Black Bear Inn. Bruce and Wendy have a touch of class with all the details that that give you while you stay with them. This is not a B and B It is a very comfortable and private Inn to stay when you are visiting this area. The food and effort to detail was out of this world. Both Bruce and Wendi are excellent cooks and care takers. They will cater to all you special needs. This could be your Home away from Home. Give it a try, you won't be disappointed...........................

We are a return customer to this beautiful hideaway in the mountains while visiting family in the area. Wendi & Bruce are perfect hosts for their homey bed and breakfast. The rooms are immaculate, the king beds are plush and comfy, the showers are equivalent to standing in a warm rainfall, and the amenities are all you would expect in a 4 star hotel. Bruce's culinary skills awaken you each morning with a delicious breakfast and Wendi serves up the perfect touch each evening with an artful display of cheeses and a fine glass of wine. We love the personal attention and touches seen and felt throughout the inn and grounds which lend a feeling of comfort and relaxation. Although we did not take advantage of the hot tub on the grounds we did enjoy the large back patio (and the deer passing through the woods). We will continue to be a return customer and are very happy to recommend this to anyone that is looking for that personal touch.

Wonderful place to stay! We had a great time. The accomodations were excellent, the food delicous and the outdoor surroundings were breathtaking. Just can't say enough good about the owners. Bruce and Wendi were meant to be in this business!!! I am recommending this place to all of my friends.
