Tucked away on Little St. Germain Lake, the Black Bear Lodge offers comfortable lodging in the pines. The property has access to the water, with its own beach and docks. Boats, canoes and other watercraft are available for use, free of charge. The rooms are clean and roomy. The kitchen has a stove, microwave and coffee maker, and a reasonable...

My granddaughters wedding was held here and there are not enough words to praise this place. The staff was more than accommodating and so wonderful! Shane and Angie in the bar was amazing with our group. Megan the wedding planner was the best! I would highly recommend the Black Bear Lodge for a wedding setting, or a vacation destination. We...

Very nice location, saw a flock of wild turkeys and 3 deer early in the morning. Great view of lake and decent sized cabin and rooms. Decent TV and internet. The bathroom was adequate, not too fancy. The one negative is that the kitchen was a tad dated to say the least.

We stayed in August of 2015, in the two-bedroom Cozy Pine Cabin. The area we were in was quiet, with a beautiful tree-lined lakefront view. It was easy to forget about the bustling city we left the moment we arrived. The staff was extremely friendly. I forget the name of the man who came out to show us city folks...

Just a perfect quick getaway. Very welcoming staff. Perfectly clean room. We had a suite with hot tub and full kitchen. Wish we had more time. Excellent location with free paddle boards and kayaks! They also rent boats and jet skis but we didn't have time. Thank you can't wait to come back.

We have been coming to the Black Bear Lodge since 2012 for our family fishing outings. The first three times were great, but this trip was a bit disappointing. We usually come in June and the fishing has been great. We learned the hard way that August is really made for families with jet skis, speed boat with skiers, and...

My wife and I stayed for 5 nights with our kids, ages 18 and 16. The premier lodge home was very comfortable. The kids had their own bedroom and a bathroom off the hall, while my wife and I shared a suite with a king bed. The appliances in our unit were a little dated but worked fine. The views...

We just returned from a family vacation with family at Black Bear Lodge. It was our first visit to this resort. We had children, teens, adults and grandparents. The resort was clean and comfortable. The beach was small, but enough space to accommodate all guests. There were many piers with Adirondack chairs available. We especially loved our coffee lakeside in...
