Our stay at Golden Bear Lodge was AMAZING! Great customer service from booking to check out! The Owners definitely take the time to make sure all of your questions are answered. This cabin is absolutely beautiful! Super clean, cozy, private, well-maintained and had plenty of room and activities to keep our group of 20 busy all weekend long! I'm not sure if I've ever slept in a bed as comfy as the beds here! Our days were filled with fishing, swimming, hiking, grilling
(grill was provided), family bets in the game room and relaxing in the hot tub! Even though we chose to stay in.. they did provide a book of activities/ attractions that were nearby. There is also a grocery store about 5 min away.. for those items you might forget!
If you're looking for the perfect place to get away...this is it!!Our family and friends are still talking about our stay and making plans for our next trip!!

“Great Stay at Golden Bear Lodge”
Reviewed 21 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Golden Bear Lodge was the perfect place for our group of 10 to reunite and have a great weekend. We first heard about the lodge from a friend who had nothing but wonderful things to say about the property and its owners. Between the rave reviews and browsing the pictures online we sure that Golden Bear Lodge would be perfect for us-- and it did not disappoint. From the start the owners had great communication and followed up after our stay to make sure everything went well. When we arrived the lodge was immaculate and believe it or not, was better than the pictures. We had a great time exploring the surrounding area and using the expansive space to enjoy ourselves. The entire place and process exceeded our expectations. We had a great time and will likely come back for years to come.

“Perfect Golf Retreat”
Reviewed 7 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Our group of 16 golfers, ages 27-53, stayed at the lodge recently for our 15th annual golf outing. It worked out perfectly!! Three days of 18 holes each day at Brookside in Ashland (20 min. drive), followed by a few relaxing evenings at the Golden Bear Lodge was awesome. From the very start, working with Jesse to make the arrangements was smooth and simple. We were very impressed at how clean and comfortable everything was. The game room was a big hit as you might imagine and got alot of use and the kitchen was very well equipped and had everything we needed & more. Most of our time was spent on the huge deck and in the backyard. Both had plenty of space to accomodate our group and plenty of room for lawn jarts, can jam, wiffle ball and just sitting around catching up. This was our best outing yet and we are already reserving the Golden Bear (a fitting name for a golf outing) for the 16th annual next year!!

“Fantastic Getaway From the City!”
Reviewed 14 July 2014 for a stay in June 2014

The Golden Bear Lodge was a wonderful venue to celebrate my son's 30th birthday, or for that matter, any vacation or event. We had friends and family ranging in age from 7-70 and we were never at a loss for things to do. Right from the moment of contacting Jesse to rent the lodge, he made the process easy and was always available by phone or email to answer my questions. He was pleasant and eager to please to make our weekend the best! He made it clear what their rental expectations were in order to provide us with the best possible facility.

Upon entering the lodge, we were stunned by the beauty of the lodge and the surrounding area. Every area of the lodge was spotless and very well maintained. The kitchen was very well-equipped - and that's coming from a bunch of Italians who like to cook:) There was enough seating for everyone to sit at the same table and have a meal. The deck itself made it easy to enjoy everyone's company whether you were on the deck or in the kitchen. The deck furniture was aesthetically pleasing, comfortable, and seated 8 of us very well. The cook-friendly grill was used and we noticed we were low on propane. I made a call to Jesse and the problem was taken care of easily and efficiently. The grill was of a large capacity and easy to use.

The game room/video room was every kid's dream and adult's dream too! Big and small spent hours down there on the games, playing pool, shooting baskets or just watching TV. There was plenty of room to sprawl out and enjoy the sounds of the lights, bells, and whistles!

Every bedroom was a great size and accommodated all 20 of us beyond our satisfaction. The mattresses were very, very comfortable and the bedding and linens were of a high quality.

Everyone enjoyed the pond! We had lots of expert fishermen among us who loved to try to catch the big one! Many hours of that weekend were spent at the pond, whether it was actually fishing or as a spectator to see who could catch the big one.

Ten adults from our group went to Battlezone in Mansfield, OH for paintballing. They had a fantastic time and couldn't stop talking about it. My husband and son have done paintballing at other facilities and said this was the best one to which they had been.

I would highly recommend the lodge to anyone who wants to stay in a beautiful lodge that is highly appointed and well-equipped. It is a wonderful place to create many new memories.

“Beautiful, peaceful lodge with room for the whole family”
Reviewed 7 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

The lodge was nice and spacious for our family of 15. Everything was spic and span from the kitchen to the bedrooms and bathrooms. And there were plenty of family activities that were pleasing to young kids to teenagers to adults alike. We thoroughly enjoyed the lower level game room and hot tub but the best was the pond. Our entire family spent hours down by the pond fishing, swimming, playing on the playground and in the evenings, we enjoyed sitting around the campfire. It was a wonderful memory for our entire family!

“Great place to stay.”
Reviewed 13 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014

Our extended family, all 18- 4 children with their 2 children each-stayed at Great Bear lodge Ohio to celebrate our 50 the wedding Anniversary. The lodge space is spacious so each family had a bed room. The children ages 15 1/2 - 3 loved the game area. The hot tub was a favorite gathering spot. A BIG hit was fishing in the stocked pond. Everyone caught a fish. All enjoyed s'mores around the fire pit.
The dinning room table fit all 18 with ease. The kitchen is well equipped and had every thing we needed.
We would definitely go back.
