Great property, especially during virus season
We were looking for a coronavirus-safe property: uncrowded grounds, with exterior room entry, minimal staff entry into the room, and no valet parking. The 2BR “den” cabin fit the bill. Check-in used a sanitized/plastic wrapped pen and guest key packet. Their virus policy is that housekeeping won’t enter the room during your stay. Instead, we were given a large bag to deposit used towels outside our room door each morning, along with a card to mark any supplies we wanted. We also put our trash outside our door. We would leave for the day, and when we came back, everything we needed was sitting in a new bag outside our door. That way nobody entered our unit during our stay. Other pluses: Super friendly staff. Parking was just 10 seconds from our door. The cabin was very spacious — about 800 square feet. There was a small hot tub on property, just big enough for a family (which discouraged crowding). We never saw anyone use it besides us. The property is beautifully landscaped. We even saw a beautiful cinnamon colored bear run by our back window one evening — our first bear sighting in Tahoe in 20+ years of coming here! Just a few nits: Wish the cabin had 2 bathrooms and a full kitchen. The flow could have used a wet mopping.

Very comfy room
Room felt very comfortable as if in being in own bedroom. Air conditioning worked great kept the room cool all night. Bathrobe and slippers were comfy. Like the simple decoration and TV in the cabinet. Would have been nice to have a mini fridge.

Black Bear Lodge...a gem!!
This is a gem of a hotel...especially if you’re lucky enough to book one of their cabins. It’s in a great location...walkable to restaurants, the beach and the casinos. The staff is friendly and helpful and the rooms have all of the comforts of home! The common “wooded” grass area and deck are perfect for morning coffee and happy hour!
