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.

Summer is in full swing. Happy 4th of July!

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!

Tahoe’s water temp: perfect

Wade, sit in the sand and enjoy the scenery. Big Blue is clear, deep and just the right temp in the shallows. Crowds thinning, now is the time to be here. Reserve our three bedroom chalet today. The aspen in Sky Meadows are just starting to turn gold.

Lake Tahoe: the views are spectacular

Hike, bike or drive to see Lake Tahoe’s wonders. And stay in the center of it all: Black Bear Lodge Tahoe. Fall is one of the best times to visit. Reserve some vacation time at Black Bear Lodge Tahoe.
