Is Black Bear Lodge pet friendly?
As much as we love our furry friends, we are not pet-friendly at this time.

How exactly far are you away from the big city?

Chicago: 360 miles or 5hrs 45min
Minneapolis: 268 miles or 4hrs 17min

How many rooms are in the lodge?

Are towels and linens provided?
Indeed! All of our accommodations include fresh towels and linens.

What are the hours of the Wild Bear Grill and Pub?

How far is the nearest grocery store?
Sentry Foods is located approximately three miles from Black Bear Lodge.

What’s to do nearby?
So much to do, so little time. Go biking riding on the miles and miles of paved bike trails. Take the kids go-karting or even horseback riding. Our area offers a variety of seasonal activities all year long.

You’re on Little St. Germain Lake. What kind of fish can we catch?
Known as one of the most fertile lakes around, Little St. Germain Lake promises amazing fish adventures. Some popular catches include blue gill, perch, bass (large and small mouth), walleye, northern and muskie.

Can we bring our own boat?
Sure, why not? We have plenty of dock space for you. Black Bear Lodge has our very own boat ramps and electric outlets by the docks. Just let us know when booking your reservation and we’ll provide you with all the information you need to know.

We’d love to go out on the water but what if we don’t have our own boat?
We encourage all of our guests to get out on the water and enjoy all Little St. Germain has to offer. That’s why all our units come with a 14 foot aluminum row boat. And motors can be rented, but at an extra cost.

Are there swim beaches?
For sure. We have two on the grounds. Jump in!

Do you have grills we can use?
We’re happy to have charcoal grills available for all our guests. But, safety first! Grilling is not allowed on the second floor balconies in our lodge homes.
