True B&Bs are hard to come by at South Tahoe, but the Black Bear Lodge isn't just one of the best bed and breakfasts at the lake; it also ranks as one of the best in the state of California. With the rustic log cabin setting you would expect, the main lodge has five rooms, each with a fireplace and private bath. The three cabins each have a private patio, and there is an outdoor hot tub at the property. The Black Bear is non-smoking and offers free WiFi and, of course, a full hot breakfast each morning.
