We stayed in a Whitetail cabin that was right on the lake.. it had beautiful views and awesome fishing! I LOVED having my coffee on the deck each morning, looking at the lake. Cabins were comfy and homey. They provided basic kitchen supplies, which helped a lot. We did grill out each night but the kitchen amenities were nice for...

Thanks for the nice review! We are exploring how to best outfit the cabins with AC in the future.

We stayed here mid-June and it was fantastic!! We stayed in a 2 bedroom lodge room that faced the lake as all of their rooms do and comes with a complimentary row boat (while supplies last). It was so restful and the staff were all very friendly and professional there is not one thing I would have changed!

We stayed one night, booked online, for a weekend in early November. With snow lightly coming down, the resort was quiet. Our suite overlooking the lake was simply furnished with knotty pine interiors and comfortable furniture. We found the bed to be quite firm however. The space was good with a living room/equipped kitchen, bedroom and bathroom and a deck...

We 2 couples try to make it to northern Wisconsin every autumn for the colors, smells and serenity only the north-woods can provide. Black Bear Lodge adds to the enjoyment. This was our 2nd time staying here and it was perfect again. The staff is great, the cabins and condo units were comfy and clean. Well appointed kitchens and clean...

I spent two nights at Black Bear Lodge for a romantic getaway and I have to say it was absolutely perfect. We were both blown away by the fall scenery on Little Saint Germain Lake, and made good use of all the provided amenities at the resort. Our lodge was surprisingly roomy and very clean. In the living room, the...

We spent three nights at the Black Bear Lodge while checking out the fall color. Our condo was right on the lake with wonderful views. Lots of gorgeous foliage and bald eagles flying overhead. Our two bedroom, two bath condo was lovely. The kitchen was well equipped and the living area was cozy. There was a deck facing the lake...

We spent a night with friends in a 2-BR suite in the one of the three new townhouse-like buildings. Our unit was very spacious and absolutely clean. The gas fireplace conveyed a cozy atmosphere. The mattresses were soft and not for overweight visitors. Scenery was fabulous and the staff helpful and friendly.

I went here with a group of women to view the fall foliage and we were not disappointed! We had a 2 bed, 2 bath condo. We were right on the water, had our own kitchen, patio, grill, pier, outdoor table and chairs etc. We paid $130 and it was well worth it! Clean, nice, beautiful!

Can't wait to make another trip. We've been to Black Bear four times now and will be returning on future trips! We love the quiet of the grounds and the privacy of the cabins. Always an enjoyable stay.
