“Everyone should visit the Northwoods”
Reviewed 13 August 2014

We were two families totaling nine people. The condo units were perfect for space and relaxing. All the amenities needed for staying for an extended period of time were available. The children loved, loved, loved, the lake, the kayaks, and the floating platform. Each night we had a campfire. It was a terrific trip up north. We are already planning a return trip to see the fall colors.

We have stayed at Black Bear twice and have been very pleased with the facility and staff. The only suggestion we could make is that the interior of the Lodge Homes and cabins need to be updated. We will very likely stay there again.

Great location on a beautiful lake. Clean rooms and friendly staff. Nice waterfront and equipment great for families. Boat selection was very good; row boats, fishing boats and pontoon. Nice piers and kid friendly beach.

Stayed in Bear Trap Suite II - perhaps the least desirable, last unreserved spot. Not as pictured on website. We felt the rate was pricey for this room, which was dark and spartan, if clean. Perhaps another room/house would do.

We have stayed at Black Bear Lodge 3 times. We have enjoyed it each time. Our son's wedding was there in 2012. Everyone had a great time. The resort is clean, the staff friendly, the lake is beautiful. It is a good location for traveling the north woods.

We have stayed at Black Bear for 3 years. This is the first year the lodge was unclean. Hopefully, that will not be the case next year. The location is great and they really keep the grounds well manicured and attended to.

Everyone at Black Bear Lodge was great and would do whatever they could to make sure your stay was enjoyable. The location of the resort on beautiful Little St. Germain is unbeatable. Will be back for another family vacation.
