The Arnold Black Bear Inn is your perfect, romantic home base for recreation and an obvious first choice for our Ultimate Romantic Winter Getaway as one of the most outstanding lodging properties in Calaveras County and top winner of our Innovations in Tourism Awards for 2013. Husband and wife team, Bruce and Wendi Davison bring an exemplary level of customer service to their beautiful timber frame inn. At 4000 feet, it’s perfectly located for snowy upcountry fun in Bear Valley and wine tasting, shopping, pampering and fabulous cuisine in Murphys.
Their beautifully appointed five guest suites each feature supremely comfy tempurpedic mattresses toppers and down comforters, jacuzzi tubs, bathrobes, complimentary Lindor truffles, 48″ flat screen tvs, gas fireplaces and french doors opening on to manicured grounds. For more on what’s included in each suite, go to their guest suites page on their website.
Bringing his cordon bleu chef training to the inn for delicious, included breakfasts and optional dinners, Bruce offers up several highly tempting dishes including his famous nut crusted French toast. Here you can see Chef Bruce prepare this dish, live, in-studio at Fox40 in Sacramento: youtube.com/watch?v=LNJYgVIAXNc.
Guests at the inn also enjoy complimentary local wines with a customized cheese & charcuterie plate every evening. Did they think of everything to make your stay exceed your expectations? We think so! Read some of their typically outstanding reviews here: arnoldblackbearinn.tumblr.com.
