We had an awesome experience at the Black Bear Inn!!! The room was EXTREMELY clean, and well kept. The first thing I noticed as we walked in was the clean, fresh, homey smell of the room, and the decorations I thought were very inviting!!😊 My kids were skeptical on staying here at first, because there was no indoor swimming pool...

It's the extras you won't find anywhere else (books, line-dried sheets, plush towels, ceramic cups, campfires beside a river, & a personable host) that will make you glad you chose THE BLACK BEAR INN.

We were on our way home to Oregon when we stopped in Dubois. To be honest I was a little leary about what the rooms would be like as we had a bad experience in another town the night before. Liz welcomed us to see the room before we paid and we were happy with what we saw. The room... More

My handicapped wife and I stayed one night. There were six stuffed bears in our room and when we pulled out the wash cloths there were Twix candy bars in them. Liz, Lee Ann, and Lee Ann's daughter were very nice. They have a library with books and CDs to watch. Black Bear Inn is on a river and you... More

We stayed at the Black Bear Inn and took a step back to a simpler time when staying at a road side Inn was run by people and not corporations . Our room was very sweet with all the touches of a time long ago and all the cleanliness we all want and expect. The Inn is unique as well... More

Although billed as nonsmoking, the room I stayed in smelled like a VFW bar. It did serve to mask the odor of the mold obviously growing in bathroom. Could not wait to get out of there. Would have left immediately if there was another room available in town. While some may find the teddy bears and rubber ducks charming, I... More

Michael, We were so sad to see this post. All of our rooms are non smoking rooms. Once in a while smokers rent them and smoke near the door but I don't know how it could smell like a VFW bar. I so wish you would have alerted us to the problem. We could have moved you to another room.... More

Liz makes sure each guest is very well taken care of at her Inn. She takes the extra steps and always offers to assist and help in any way. Liz makes friends and not just as "customer" but as a true guest in her summer home. Thank you Ms. Liz...

Stayed only for one night during a recent road-trip. The room was clean, comfortable and charmingly decorated with teddy bears, rubber ducks and other homey touches. LOVED the towels (thick and fluffy, not your usual industrial types). The young man who checked me in was friendly and helpful, and the price was right. Would definitely stay here again. Two small...

Thanks for the review Mary! We appreciate it. Sorry about the temp. Only one motel in Dubois has A/C as we don't usually need it. Fans and windows are usually all that is needed, but we have had a couple hot days this summer, sorry you landed here on one of those. I will show my son what you said... More

Myself, my boys and my Mom stayed in the beginning of June 2012. I think we might have been the first customers of the season. There were a few things that we had issues with. When we told Liz, she jumped right to it to make everything fabulous. It was an incredible stay. Liz is the most wonderful hostess. Liz... More
