About

Guests 2 to 400

Tucked away on the edge of Little St. Germain Lake sits our retreat, hidden among the undisturbed woodland and wildlife in the Northern Wisconsin. With 2100 feet of shoreline, we offer an extraordinary outdoor stage for your special day.

We are one of the most popular sites in the area for weddings. Our resort is the ideal spot to celebrate the entire event, from the rehearsal to the Sunday brunch. We pride ourselves in the fact we have so much to offer your guests, they won't want to leave the resort. Our typical wedding starts on Thursday with preparations for the big day; Friday is the rehearsal followed by dinner at our Wild Bear Grill & Pub (can seat 70) or a family & friends picnic (which has been quite popular) at one of our campfire sites on the lakeshore. Saturday is the actual Lakefront Ceremony followed by the dinner and reception. For Wedding groups up to 400, we have our Event Grounds that is ideal for a beautiful white tent, during the months of May through October. Our tent weddings require catering from an area vendor, I do have a list of those available.

One of the advantages of reserving with us is a dedicated events staff that will ensure every detail is taken care of. When your big day arrives, we want you to be able to relax and enjoy it, not worry about anything else. We are very flexible and strive to meet all of your desires.

Our resort offers a variety of accommodations of 1 to 3 bedroom Cottages and Lodge Homes (condo-style units). We offer Lodging Discounts for your guests. If 20 units are confirmed (2 night minimum), we will reward you with a complimentary one night stay in a Jacuzzi Lodge Home on your Wedding Night. All guests staying with us will enjoy complimentary row boats, canoes, kayaks and paddle boats. We also have pontoon boats and 8 hp motors available to rent!

We look forward to hearing from you, let us know your availability and we’ll set up an appointment for a tour!

    The staff at the resort, especially Megan who is in charge of the wedding planning was incredible to us. Megan was right on top of everything and so incredibly nice. We felt very taken care of and our day was perfect!

    There aren't enough stars to rate Black Bear Lodge. My husband and I were married there on Oct. 2, 2015 at Black Bear and cannot even put into words how great the experience was!! Megan and the staff were great to work with and SO incredibly accommodating. I hope every bride has someone as great as Megan to work with. She covered every detail of the pre-wedding day stuff and even on the wedding day helped set up the restaurant for dinner and stayed throughout the day. We are immensely grateful!! Craig and his staff at the Bear's Den made an incredible dinner for us on our wedding night. Be sure to have LJ behind the bar! All of the guests were so impressed with the GREAT food and drinks. Mark Wayne and his keyboard was perfect music. The Bear's Den has such a great feel and so welcoming.

    The cabins and grounds are beautiful. Stunning views for our wedding!!!

    Thank you so much Black Bear for an incredible time. We will see you on our 1 year anniversary!!

    My husband and I were married at Black Bear Lodge on June 27, 2015. Our wedding weekend was an absolute dream! We can not say enough about Black Bear staff, the grounds, and the accommodations. At the top of the list is the event coordinator- Megan. We live approximately 4 hours from the resort, so this was a mini-destination. Megan was always responsive to all of our questions/emails and helpful in coordinating/finding vendors from afar. Her laid paid nature and wonderful sense of humor was a perfect fit for a bride and groom wanting everything to be perfect! We had our rehearsal dinner at Black Bear on Friday night and were able to throw a cookout for 130 people to start the weekend. Megan had tables/table clothes and chairs all set up for us. On Saturday, her team made sure that everything was perfect for the ceremony site by the water as well as the gorgeous tent. Our guests could not stop talking about the beautiful setting and atmosphere- everything was perfect from guests kayaking/paddle boarding prior to the ceremony to others fishing off the numerous docks--- many are already planning trips back with their families. If you are looking for a beautiful rustic setting by the water in the Northwoods- Black Bear is it. Thank you Black Bear and Megan- we can't wait to make many more wonderful memories at your resort in the future years to come.
