So much to do at Tahoe

kayaktahoe

It’s one HOT summer all over California and what better place to escape the heat but Tahoe where water sports are the play of the day. From kayaking to water skiing to just plain getting in and swimming, it doesn’t get much better. Try the new see-through kayaks and test the lake’s famous clarity.

clearkayak

Rent a  polycarbonate kayaks that is completely transparent from Clearly Tahoe. They equip each kayak with a book of flash cards that help identify invasive species, encouraging their customers to use and log anything they see. The kayaks aren’t designed for speed and maneuvering, like a typical sit-in kayak, but use is mostly meant for slower-placed, scenic touring. Their rentals start at $85 for two hours. For information on kayaks, rentals and guided tours, visit clearlytahoe.com or call 530-554-4664

So much to do here at beautiful Lake Tahoe. The lake level is brimming and boating season the clear blue waters is a dreamy experience.  Kayak, stand-up paddle, jetski, parasail, rent a power boat or motor toy….it’s all fun.

If you’d like to just take a ride, the Tahoe Queen is at your service. A perfect outing for the kids.

After your day on the water, tuck yourself in at the Black Bear. You will love our location, our sunny deck, our quiet little corner of Sky Meadows.

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

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:

The sand has been frosted with a blanket of snow but that’s not stopping these beach picnickers.
