“The Best!”

Wendi and Bruce are superb hosts, the place is beautiful and the breakfasts to die for. Wine and cheese in the afternoon was a wonderful touch. They spend a lot of energy on presentation and it shows. My best friend and I went for 4 days to get away from the stress of work and home and it couldn’t have been better.
I highly recommend. We are hoping to get our group of 5 couples to spend a weekend in late spring.

This was our third visit to the Black Bear Inn, and we had a wonderful time as always. Bruce and Wendi are friendly and accomodating. The Inn is beautiful and clean, the grounds meticulously maintained, and the inn is so relaxing. The rooms are lovely, and the beds are very comfortable. The breakfast is scruptious and elegantly presented. It’s just a perfect little getaway. We have stayed at many B & Bs, but none compare to the Black Bear Inn. We would heartily recommend the Black Bear Inn to anybody. Thanks, Wendi and Bruce. See you next year. Cheryl & Ray, Sunnyvale, CA

“Perfect Get-Away Destination”

We are so happy to have found this relaxing bed and breakfast. Bruce and Wendi made us feel right at home from the moment we arrived. The rooms are wonderfully cozy and the overall property has a relaxing vibe. From the evening wine and cheese to the gourmet breakfasts (amazing french toast!) to the fantastic multi-course dinner Chef Bruce prepared we were perfectly satisfied staying snuggled up at the Inn. But it also has an excellent location being close to several dozen wineries/tasting rooms, and adventurous activities like horseback riding, zip lining and rappelling. We didn’t know the area and Wendi helped with recommendations for where to visit, and even created a list of such specifically for our tastes! The special attention we received from Bruce and Wendi will definitely make us repeat customers. We highly recommend staying at Black Bear Inn!

Room Tip: If you want firmer or softer pillows just ask! Bruce and Wendi are very accommodating.

“We loved everything about the Black Bear Inn”

We were looking for a quick get-a-way to celebrate our 24th Wedding Anniversary and WOW, did we find the perfect spot! We loved everything about the Black Bear Inn from the minute we walked through the front door. Wendy took us on a tour of the property right away then showed us our room. We could see that the Monterey room was open and she offered to let us stay in which ever one we preferred. They even had chocolates with an anniversary card for us waiting in our room. Wendy made up a lovely plate of specialty cheeses and crackers paired with some wonderful wine, (my favorite was the blueberry and apricot goat cheese). They took care of our dinner reservations for us, although next time we’ll stay in and have Bruce do the cooking. I also LOVED that they let you choose what time you would like to eat breakfast, we decided to take advantage of their comfy beds and sleep in. We opened our door to delicious aromas that stirred our appetites and by the time we poured our coffee and sat down we were served a gorgeous display of fruit, with hickory smoked bacon, and French toast. It was absolutely wonderful. Everything about our stay was truly enjoyable! We plan on returning with several of our friends, maybe even take one of Bruce’s hands-on cooking classes! How fun would that be!
