Don’t let Tahoe in August pass you by

bblaketahoe

The clarity of the lake will astound you, the outdoor options endless, and as most folks know, it’s prime time right now. It never gets too hot here, in summer it’s just right, and the romantic rustle of the pines let you know you are in the High Sierra.

We like to swim at Kiva Beach, about 15 minutes from the Black Bear. Our two favorite kayaking spots are Emerald Bay, about an hour paddle and Sand Harbor, more of a drive but if you get there early…..fairytale….where all the promo shots of the Lake are always taken.

Then there’s the Lake Tahoe for hikers.  Desolation Wildnerness is just up the road and the Tahoe Rim Trail is a half hour away. Bike trails are ten minutes away and we like the ride to Richardson’s Bay.  Yes, we’re all about location at our cabin and you’ll appreciate being close to shopping too.

Better start looking at your calendar, ours is filling up.  Reserve now:

Rates are low, mountain experiences high.

Tahoe spring/summer heating up

blackbearlodgetahoe2019

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:

Black Bear Lodge Tahoe: gold and blue

HopeValleyFall2017

Taken just a few days ago, Tahoe is beauty beyond words. The aspens are every color of gold and orange and the wind has been kind enough to let the leafed trees show off all their glory. It’s shoulder season now and rates are very attractive. Come visit! Stay awhile.

Recent five star reviews:

“Great location, nice back porch, convenient amenities. This rental has a “cabin-y” feel. It is unpretentious and homey.”

Leaf peeper alert

tahoeColors

The aspen, willow and cottonwoods are just starting to turn their vibrant colors and the teeming crowds of summer have dwindled. Yes, it’s time to come to Tahoe to catch the magic and enjoy this special season. The water is still and clear, the Kokanee Salmon are filling the creeks and there’s plenty of room on the winding bike trails that circle the lake.

It’s particularly beautiful at Sky Meadows.  Pine needles carpet the grounds, the meadow is mowed and there’s plenty of room to play horseshoes or throw a football or frisbee. The good news: we have availability and our rates are super low.  You might even think ahead and lock in Christmas, winter wonderland time around here.

Come visit! Here are some handy links to reserve:

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.
