“Awesome room with a great view!”
Reviewed March 4, 2013 via mobile

We planed a last minute trip north and the black bear lodge helped is out. We were upgraded to the condo unit that also had easy access to the lake. The condo had two rooms. One had a king bed with a jacuzzi and a private bathroom. The other room had two twin beds. There is also another bathroom. There is also a kitchen and dining area. There is a fireplace with a pull out couch bed and two recliners. We would defiantly be back there again !

Well, we went back again to Black Bear for another snowmobiling adventure. We love this lodge. It has a great location, close enough to eating places but far enough to enjoy peace and quiet. Although there are alot of snowmobilers that stay here they are not a noisy bunch. The Bears Den is a great place to get a bite to eat. Although the lodge has recently changed ownership nothing has changed, it is still a great place to stay.

We stayed at Black Bear this past week. It was clean and had nice accomadations. Ate at the bar and had hamburgers that were good too. I would recommend staying here. It would be nice to see this place during the summer but we were intown for vintage races so not alot of time was spent at the lodge.

We enjoyed two days in this clean modern condo. Is sits on little St.Germain Lake which is part of a chain of lake.Row boat was included and we caught some pan fish..The place is maintained well and very clean.We ate supper at the on-site restaurant,the food was good and price reasonable.The waitress gave us free piece of carrot cake each.You can take your own food along they have grills and full kitchen.We had to bring towels every thing else was there.I use a coupon from a shopping show .I would love to go again if I can afford it. Web sie is blackbearlodge.com. Phone number is 715-479-5778 .Ed was the maintaince man and he was nice.

Room Tip: When booking ask if it on ground floor.(if this matters to you)They also do wedding and big groups

We absolutely loved our stay at Black Bear Lodge and were even pleasantly surprised by amenities we didn't expect. The accommodations were spacious and lovely; the grounds were beautiful, with an amazing view of the lake from our balcony. We canoed around the lake, made a campfire with wood they provided (and made s'mores!), had a quiet breakfast on our balcony, dinners by candlelight inside, enjoyed sitting on the pier reading and listening to the waves lapping on the shore and hiked in two different (and wonderful) nearby state parks -- all in three days (actually two full days)! We cooked all meals there so didn't eat out or at their on-site restaurant. Everything exceeded our expectations and made our three-day stay a vacation to remember. We will definitely return to this awesome lodge.

We booked a Friday and Saturday at this beautiful, clean lodge. The grounds are well kept, you feel comfortable the moment you arrive. The 2 bedroom unit was modern and had a beautiful view of the water. We really enjoyed strolling along the shore and sitting in the chairs on the dock. There is no daily maid service and that was fine, but the size of the soap they provide is a little over an inch in diameter (see picture). When my husband called thinking they just forgot to give us a bath size bar, we received the two inch rectangular bar. We paid more than $200 dollars a night and they couldn't afford to give out decent size bars of soap? This issue didn't ruin my stay, we will always have this pettiness to laugh about.

Thank you for your feedback! We depend on our guests to let us know how we are doing and as a result of your comment about the size of the soap bar, we are now placing a larger size bath bar in the units. We just wanted you to know - hope to see you again soon!

Just spent three nights here with my financee for a romantic getaway. Great modern lodge on beautiful serene lake. Also a great place to bring the kids and plan to rebook for next summer with the whole family.

Nice range of accomodations from cabins, suites and luxury homes which we stayed in. Large modern two bedroom condo like was very clean and all have views of the lake. The lodge provides free use of rowboats, canoes and kayaks which we really took advantage of. Can rent motors for $45/day but lakes small enough that if dont mind getting a little exercise not really needed.

Beach has a small sand area and nice shallow sandy bottom for kids. Can walk out to raft as water only about 4 feet at that point when I was there .

Also has on site bar/restaurant which is convenient but a little pricey for what you get but overall decent food. Plenty of charcoal grills about property though so most people just grileed out each night.

I used a groupon deal which broght me to the place so felt got great value for that price. Will need to see what regular rates are to see if still reasonalbe at full price. I paid about $100/night for the luxury town two bedroom home.

Overall a very nice place and I did see a resident eagle flyinig over lake every day.

Room Tip: Upstairs luxury town homes are more quiet but do have stairs to contend with. Also couple of the un...
