We loved our stay at the Black Bear Inn. Liz, her family, friends and staff made us feel incredibly welcome and as well as s'mores by the river they even gave us some dinner! Rooms were large and cosy and particularly like the rubber ducks. The only downside is that we stayed the one night. Thank you for your hospitality.

Staying at the Black Bear is like visiting a favorite aunt or grandma's vintage home from the cozy, thick towels and soft, sun dried sheets on the bed to real flowers growing in pots right outside your room. Liz has a campfire each evening on the riverbank where guests gather to share stories and make somemores against the comforting sound... More

I made a reservation for our friends from Germany, and they said they really enjoyed their stay. The staff was very friendly and the rooms were comfortable and clean. Thanks for making their stay with you so good.

Can't say enough about how much I enjoyed my stay at the Bear. Liz and the kids are wonderful hosts. I really enjoyed sitting around the campfire and visiting with the other guest. This was just a one night stop for me on the way to Alaska. I do a month or so motorcycle trip every summer and will defiantly... More

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
