Please note that there is NO smoking allowed IN any of the lodges at Black Bear. However, there are smoking receptacles located outside on the decks.
We do not provide maid service, towels or bed sheets.

The rate for your stay is dependent on the time of year and length of stay. During the summer months, the lodges are available on a weekly basis (Saturday - Saturday) with a check-in time of 3 pm and a check-out time of 10 am. The lodges are available for rental during the winter season from December 1st - March 31st. We also offer rentals in the spring & fall season with a 2 night minimum stay. For specifics, please contact us and we will provide you information based on your request.

Upon booking your stay, a 25% or 50% deposit of the rental will be due depending on how far in advance you are booking and required to secure your reservation. The final balance of the rental will be due 30 days prior to your arrival. An additional $200 security deposit (weekly stay) or $100 security deposit (2 night stay) is required and added to your final payment due. If the lodge is left clean and no lost or broken items, the security deposit will be refunded within two weeks after your stay.

Cancellations impact us significantly. If you need to cancel your reservations, payments are non-refundable unless we are able to rebook your lodge.

As much as we would love to have them, pets are not allowed in our lodges. There is a great pet hotel in Old Forge called Feathers & Boughs (315) 369-2323.
