Fodor's Review

The rooms and cabins at South Lake Tahoe's most luxurious inn feature 19th-century American antiques, fine art, and fireplaces; cabins also have kitchenettes. Built in the 1990s with meticulous attention to detail, the entire complex feels like one of the grand old lodges of the Adirondacks. Its great room has rough-hewn beams, plank floors, cathedral ceilings, Persian rugs, and even an elk's head over the giant river-rock fireplace. Never intrusive, the affable innkeepers

provide a sumptuous breakfast in the morning and wine and cheese in the afternoon.

Excellent!

My partner and I have stayed at this most excellent location several times over the past few years, and had the opportunity to stay once again this past weekend. I am a lifelong traveler, and this is by far one of the best locations I've ever experienced anywhere on the planet. The cabins are perfectly decorated and spotlessly maintained. The grounds are beyond beautiful, and provide the most relaxing experience imaginable. And if all that weren't

enough, the breakfasts are among the best meals I've ever had. Jerry and Kevin and their staff are the most gracious, warm, and welcoming hosts, and ensure that every detail is first class. I could not recommend the Black Bear Inn more highly, and encourage anyone considering a stay here to just do it. You won't be sorry.
