Planning ahead is always a good thing. Especially for Tahoe where summer months are the most popular and close-to-lake locations are hard to come by. Black Bear Lodge Tahoe is situated on a big sunny meadow, close to the Upper Truckee River, a 10 minute drive to the Lake. If hiking is your thing, trails are less than a half hour. The bike path that circles the lake is 10 minutes away. Shopping is super close too.
To sum it up, yes, we’ve got the best location. If you choose not to drive, the bus is a 5 minute walk.
Make your reservations before someone else snags your dates:
Days are warm and golden, nights are chilly, bike paths are less crowded. Time to bring your bike to Tahoe where the trails are world class. Fat tire, road bike, mountain bike, all comers welcome. Only requirement….wear a helmet. Budget vacationers will appreciate the price…..it’s free!
Don’t have a bike? Don’t want the hassle of loading your bike on your car? Tahoe has loads of rental companies with the latest equipment that can accommodate all the members of your family.

Need a place to stay close to the bike and hiking trails? Black Bear has THE location.
The willows are just starting to turn and a few windows of warm weather are revolving in and out. Some days wading the Upper Truckee is still within reach while others bring a nip to the air. Tip: be prepared for both and bring your cold weather gear.
Hiking and biking couldn’t be better. The summer crowds are gone and bike path lanes are pretty clear all the way to Kiva Beach. Hiking trails, superb. Willows turning gold.
Our cabin is super clean and ready for your stay. The decks were just painted and the deck chairs are all lined up for cocktails. So much better than a motel and the same price…. just more room and it’s way more peaceful. Here’s how to reserve your stay:
