Boating Tahoe? Stay at the Black Bear

Boating Tahoe

Only 5 minutes from the launch area at Tahoe Keys Marina. Or rent a boat near the Tahoe Queen entrance near Ski Run Boulevard, plenty to choose from.

Black Bear Lodge Taoe

There’s nothing like seeing the lake by boat. Suggestion: Emerald Bay and Vikingsholm a splash away and oh so scenic. Take a picnic.

Black Bear Lodge Tahoe: wildflowers everywhere

Upper Truckee River Tahoe

Along the Upper Truckee River (a short walk away from BBLT) banks the wildflowers are ablaze in color. As it empties into Lake Tahoe (pictured), the shores are perfect for wading, birdwatching, contemplating the lazy river flow.

A sandy beach is located at the end of Sky Meadows, less than 5 minutes away from our deck.  Bike or drive to Tahoe Keys where a new walking trail takes you to lakeshore swimming or picnicking.  Don’t miss the show, it’s all happening right now.

Summer at Lake Tahoe

Lake Tahoe delivers. Though occasional thundershowers yesterday, parking lots were overflowing, beaches were filled with colorful umbrellas and water toys were bobbing along the shore.  American flags adorned bikinis, hats, and waved from truckbeds. This is the place families have been coming to for decades, one of the best holiday destinations in California.  The Black Bear is taking reservatons for August. Don’t miss out!
