High water, high times at South Lake Tahoe

highwater

Mark Twain’s take on Lake Tahoe:  “surely the fairest picture the whole earth affords” couldn’t be more “right on” this year. With water levels at their highest in recorded history, summer 2017 promises to be spectacular.

The perfect reason to make the Black Bear your vacation destination this year. Just minutes from the beach (located at the end of Tahoe Keys Boulevard), and situated on a quiet sunny meadow, who could ask for anything more.  North Shore tends to go to sleep early.  South Lake has more activity opportunities and promises more fun: better access to hiking, shopping, more bike trails, boat rentals, historic state parks, more lakeside restaurants and the casinos are just up the road.

Sure, we have a terrific kitchen at our cabin, but if you need a break, treat yourself to a water-view lunch or sunset Happy Hour just up the road:

Riva Grill On the Lake,  900 Ski Run Blvd Ste 3, (530) 542-2600

Riva

Artemis Lakefront Cafe Ski Run Marina, 900 Ski Run Blvd #111,  (530) 542-3332
Boathouse on the Pier 3411 Lake Tahoe Blvd, (530) 545-4338
The Beacon Bar & Grill 1900 Jameson Beach Rd., (530) 541-0630

Most importantly, reserve your stay now, July is almost fully booked.  You’re just a click away:
