I cannot say enough good things about Black Bear Inn. The property is gorgeous and the perfect size. You get 4 different areas to work with but they are all easy walking distance from each other. The owners Wendi and Bruce are amazing! You can tell they genuinely enjoy being a part of your special day and they go above and beyond to make the whole weekend a great experience. Being able to get there Friday and leave Sunday made a huge difference in lowering my stress level on the big day and being able to truly enjoy it without having to worry about the little set up details. During the planning process, Wendi is extremely responsive and is always happy to help.

We love this little gem in the heart of the sierras. If your looking for a venue don't over look The Black Bear Inn. Its a great both indoors and out. A mountain rustic feel. We love photographing at the Black Bear Inn.

Beautiful location to have your wedding & receptions!

Black Bear inn is the perfect little mountain venue. We hope to do more weddings with them in the future. Great layout and grounds. Staff is good to work with.

I have done many weddings at the Black Bear Inn and I can't say enough about this Gorgeous Inn. From the Beautiful layout of the property down to the simplest of things like adding a charge station for your smart car. Not only is this a fantastic venue to have your wedding, it's also a great place to stay if you just want to get away for a few days and enjoy the Sierra's.
