“Good resort for kids”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

We extended our trip an extra day and Black bear was the right choice. They had a couple of beaches - one with a swim raft that the kids couldn't get enough of - canoes, kayaks and row boats. Good fishing right from the pier.
Our cabin was #9, 2 bedroom w/ full kitchen and good views.
Not too far from Eagle River and overall a very nice experience.

My husband and I were up in the north woods of Wisconsin for only 2 nights and 2 and a half days - we thought we would have to just motel it - but decided to call a resort or two and see if they had an opening - Black Bear did and we had a lovely cabin on the lake and could use some water toys at no extra charge - it was peaceful and lovely - so glad we did not stay in a town at a regular motel. Restautants in the area were great - super clean place - so glad we called them

Beautiful cabins and Lodge Homes.
Great place for a wedding and or family retreat.
Lots of docks. Great Bar and Grille on Site.
The Staff was WONDEFUL!
Groom was still cleaning fish 1 hour before the wedding :)
After the wedding weekend. May people have asked if we can do this all over again next year
( less the wedding) :)
If you want a wonderful wedding by a lake in the north woods, Call Robin! She can make your dreams come true.
If you want to put together a family retreat, this is a great place for that. You can be together but still have your own space.
I highly recommend Black Bear Lodge!

My husband and I spent this past week in one of the cabins right on the lake! It couldn't have been more relaxing! The grounds are kept up so beautifully and the staff are all so helpful and friendly! It was nice to have a restaurant on the grounds. The food was wonderful! We fished off the pier and caught our dinner one day! We were looking for a spot to just relax and get away from our busy work schedules and we found it!

Room Tip: The condos are really nice, but we preferred a more rustic cabin.

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.
