This is our second visit to Black Bear Lodge. The first time we rented a cabin but this time we rented a lodge home. The biggest difference between the two is that the lodge homes have air conditioning which for us is a big plus. We had a couple of very hot days so we were very happy that we...

Black Bear Lodge was a perfect home base for our snowmobiling trip with friends. We had a great two bedroom condo on the lake that we shared with another couple. Close to restaurants and shops with convenient little bar on the property. Clean, pretty view and nicely kept. Nice people too!

My husband and I, along with our 8 year old son, stayed here for a week. The resort is very nice and clean and the staff is friendly and accommodating as well. The resort consists of several cabins and lodge homes. We rented a cabin. The cabin was clean and had everything we needed as far as kitchen items go...

I made this reservation in the late fall of 2015 after reading multiple reviews from this site and others. When I called to make the reservation the lady was extremely polite and answered all of my questions. This vacation was for a snowmobile trip and I wanted to know if I could cancel if there was not enough snow. I...

We wanted a quiet weekend getaway for my boyfriend's 50th birthday. We chose Black Bear Lodge upon recommendation from a friend, we were not disappointed at all. I had spoke to Heather prior to arrival to ask if I sent up decorations if they would decorate our rental. She said no problem. I ask if there was place to order...

We traveled to the lodge for a Fall break. Upon arrival we were greeted by several deer! The lodge began feeding the deer corn right out of the office, we were about ten feet from the deer. Neat! The resort was well maintained and very beautiful in the Fall. The first night my husband and I wanted to have a...

This was my first stay at Black Bear Lodge and probably my last. I arrived for a mid week visit at around 6 pm Tuesday evening. I was pleased to find my one bedroom cabin extremely clean. The outdoor furniture and grill were also a plus. However, after a long drive I was disappointed to find the on site bar...

Lisa, Thanks for taking the time to write a review. I apologize that you did not feel it was the best experience. Thank you for the compliment on the "Extremely Clean" cabin, the outdoor furniture and the grill. We try to provide as many amenities as we can.

Our 2nd time at Black Bear Lodge this year. Spent 3 nights over Labor Day weekend. Even though the resort was at near capacity, you would never know it. The units are nicely spread out and it never seemed crowded. As always the staff was fantastick, from the office, to housekeeping which brought us fresh towels, to the maintenance staff,...

We stayed in a Whitetail cabin that was right on the lake.. it had beautiful views and awesome fishing! I LOVED having my coffee on the deck each morning, looking at the lake. Cabins were comfy and homey. They provided basic kitchen supplies, which helped a lot. We did grill out each night but the kitchen amenities were nice for...

Thanks for the nice review! We are exploring how to best outfit the cabins with AC in the future.

We stayed here mid-June and it was fantastic!! We stayed in a 2 bedroom lodge room that faced the lake as all of their rooms do and comes with a complimentary row boat (while supplies last). It was so restful and the staff were all very friendly and professional there is not one thing I would have changed!
