Nice Place, Clean, Comfortable, But Misrepresented

  • 3 of 5

The stay was very nice and the house was clean and comfortable. It was advertised as a 5 bedroom lodge and only had 4 bedrooms and 1 loft. The loft had a futon couch and no night stand, dresser or any other amenities that should be in a bedroom. The advertised price was $350/night and we were charged $375/night. I think the owners should update their web site with accurate information.

We stayed a week at Black Bear Lodges and very much enjoyed it, except for one thing. The listing on VRBO clearly states "Broadband access" and "Wireless broadband", and we picked it for that reason, because several people in our group needed regular access. When we got there, we discovered there was no internet, and, in fact, the owners claimed that they had never said any such thing. We would have never picked it had we known the truth - and it really bothered us that they blatantly lied about it on their listing here. Otherwise, it really was a nice place.

Family Reunion 2010

  • 5 of 5

My Family held a reunion for the third year at the Black Bear Lodges and for the third year we have had a great time, been treated to great facilities, and plan to go back for our next reunion. Things that are outstanding are that the place is extreamly clean and well kept. It is within walking distance to the small comunity of Inlet which almost always has some kind of special activity going on while we are there in September.

Best Family Vacation!!!

  • 5 of 5

We have gone to Black Bear Lodges for the past 3 years...and we plan on continuing to go for many years to come! There is not one thing we would change about it. Perfect location, wonderful beach and yard, beautiful lodges with all the amenities of home, family friendly atmosphere...and most of all the hosts. You will feel like you have know them for years!

If you are a SNOWMOBILER, we are on Trail 5 and have a lodge available for rent which accommodates 2-10 people. Available for 2 night or longer stays this winter. How about a getaway for Thanksgiving, Christmas or Presidents week?
