Haven't been to many B&B's, but, I believe this one is pretty great. If you are looking to "chill" out and enjoy time with your wife, you can do it here. The breakfast and wine was awesome. We enjoyed our cabin. The hot tub was a plus and relaxing after a day at the slopes. People always find things wrong...

We stayed at the Black Bear Inn in late August / early September, and it was amazing. The room (actually a small cabin) was spacious and comfortable, with great amenities and interesting furnishings and fixtures. The landscaping is impeccable. The hosts were very gracious and accommodating, and went out of their way to make our stay as perfect as possible....

We had such a wonderful time at the Black Bear Inn. Each breakfast was a piece of art and tasted delicious. Got the cookbook! We were there for the first snow of the season and it was so inviting to sit in front of the fire in the lodge and enjoy the ambiance. Will go back, definitely!

We had the most restful and relaxing getaway. The Black Bear Inn was so welcoming. Every staff person was friendly and took great care of us. The breakfasts were fabulous. We enjoyed a beautiful room in a lovely atmosphere. The other guests were great fun to talk with during wine and cheese time. It was total rest and relaxation.
