My husband and I stayed here and we were very happy with everything. The whole place is very rustic and cozy and the new owners were very hospitable and accommodating. Plenty of things to do and see nearby. Definitely coming back for another stay!

Justin and Brittany (new owners) are bringing a new energy to the place. The great location, indoor pool and hot tub, and hospitality can't be beat. You have choices varying from basic hotel type room to condo with full kitchen. They are in the process of updating things, but for the price--can't be beat!

The new young, friendly, enthsiastic owners of The Black River Lodge have really turned the lodge around. It is clean and the kids are working hard to get things spruced up for winter. The continental breakfast is good and there is always coffee on. It has a huge pool 55x22 which goes 3ft to 9ft, perfect for laps and fun.... More

Stayed here 2 years ago different owners had a wonderful time. Decided to come back, called to make reservations, new owners, should have trusted my gut and stayed somewhere else. When we arrived there wasn't any garbage bag in the kitchen. We were handed a bag of trash bags and told help yourself and let me know if they fit.... More

Darlene, thank you for your feedback. We’re sorry you were not pleased with our condo housekeeping services. It is customary on a condo unit to provide maid service as requested since they are larger units and mostly self-sufficient. Self-serve continental breakfast is available to all of our guests daily from 8am – 10am during the summer season, as posted. Thank... More

Stayed at the lodge after skiing Powderhorn. Great location, helpful owners. Rooms clean and breakfast was surprisingly good with waffles, cereal etc. Pool was big and warm, good little lounge and game room.

We stayed at the lodge at the recommendation of someone in the area . There are new owners who have great plans to give new life to the lodge. It does't look like much at close range but our room was very clean, comfortable, nothing fancy but acceptable none the less. The lobby was in disarray somewhat, looks like the... More

We recently stayed at the Black River Lodge and enjoyed our stay. The new owners seem to be working hard to make new changes to the lodge. This place has a lot of potential and we hope the owners keep going with their vision. The pool area is awesome and the downstairs bar is cozy and inviting. Breakfast included waffles... More

I recently stayed at black river lodge for a wedding and was very disapointed. The manager/owner was not very friendly or helpfull. He had an attitude problem when we asked to switch rooms due to the ac not cooling the entire room. The air conditioner units in the larger rooms are very much under sided for the amount of space...
