Little Lake St. Germain was beautiful. Black Bear Lodge is situated right off the water. We stayed in a lodge condo type 2 bedroom unit. on the 2nd floor looking right over the water. The unit itself was nice and clean. Any given day you could go out by the lake and see eagles soaring above. It was breathtakingly beautiful. This resort was very family friendly. In the summer months they have kids classes/activities which included a fishing derby. They had a great smores/camp fire night too. They have a great summer camp leader, Lou, she was able to help by not only entertaining the kids but by also giving us adults some good advise on where to go on an excursion, weather it be a good dinner or a drive up to the UP Michigan (about a 1.5 hr drive away). They had two small beach areas where the children could play and rafts to swim out to and jump in from. There were kayaks that you could take out which were incredibly enjoyable and free or a row boat that was included with the cost of your unit. They also had a park right outside our unit that our kids were able to play at. All in all it was a great vacation. Now, price, it is expensive. Not sure it's the most cost effective place to stay but it was nice. The units were nothing spectacular for the price. They were nice/clean/modern (pleasantly decorated with flat screen tv and dvd players) but we aren't talking granite counter tops and marble floors. There are also not any laundry facilities on the property and towels (of any kind) are not included for the $250/night charge. You can add these for an extra charge. The property itself was well maintained. There were folks out there maintaining the place all the time, trimming bushes, picking up trash, etc.... Clean place, pricey but gorgeous scenery and good times.
