Great unplugged weekend!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for a wonderful experience! If you want to get away and detox from technology, this is the place! This cabin was a nice fit for our family of 4. Owners communicated the directions very clearly. Instructions for using the cabin were very clearl as well. The cabin was clean and comfortable, and the wood stove kept us warm and toasty! We loved having a chance to play games, talk, cook, and relax together without all the screens and distractions. Your home was very cozy with wonderful views and was a great size for us. We are definitely planning on returning. Great way to unwind and unplug. Thanks so much!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the very kind review, we appreciate the comments. We are glad we can offer a nice "get-a-way" location for families that want to reconnect with a less hectic life, at least for a few days and see what nature is up to. There is nothing like sitting around a nice toasty wood stove when it is cold outside and watching the flames dance though the glass door, that is very relaxing. Thank you again for visiting with us and please come back soon, you were a wonderful guest.

Nice cozy place to stay

  • 3 of 5

Nice place to stay, but could have been more clean. There were an abundance of cobwebs and lots of dust. Other than that it was nice.

Owner's Response: Well, we are disappointed by your numerical rating as we do work hard to have a nice cabin in the woods experience for our guests. We cleaned the cabin just a few days prior to your arrival so not sure where you would have found "lots of dust". However, when we were cleaning the loft area of the cabin just after you departed we did spot some cobwebs that we had not seen before and took care of them. Otherwise, we do hope you had a nice visit and got to relax a bit and enjoy the wood stove.

Perfect get-away from tech-filled daily life.

  • 5 of 5

The Black Bear Chalet was exactly what we were looking for in a nice get-away weekend. No cell service or WiFi let’s you unplug and recharge. The cabin’s wood stove was perfect entertainment and kept us warm with outside temps below 20. Clean and well cared for when we arrived. We’ll definitely return.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for taking such good care of the Black Bear Chalet during your visit. We hope you will come back again. We love the wood stove there, the glass door allows you to watch the fire dance and the wood stove keeps the cabin nice and cozy. Many of our guests are specifically looking for a way to disconnect from our high tech 24/7 world and we are glad to be able to offer just that. Thank you again for being wonderful guests! Come again soon!

Another New Year's Eve that was just lovely!

  • 5 of 5

This is the second year that we spent ringing in the New Year at the Black Bear Chalet. This year is was a bit colder... to say the least... but there was plenty of wood to keep us warm for the entire stay! Mike is updating the flooring as you enter and in the bathroom... what I could see it looks like a great addition! The location is very remote but provides a lot of privacy which is exactly what we wanted!! Thanks for the use of your wonderful property!! Can't wait until next year!!

Owner's Response: Elizabeth and Andy - Thank you for the very nice review, we love having guests return year after year and yes indeed, it was cold outside but the wood stove really warms up the inside of the chalet pretty fast. We are glad you both had a wonderful time and please come back again next year (or sooner). Happy New Year!

Great Unplugged Weekend

  • 5 of 5

Cabin is very comfortable and well equipped. Woodstove is cozy on cool nights. Large property for exploring. Recommend checking out Paw Paw Tunnel nearby.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for the kind review. One of the things that many of our guests enjoy is an opportunity to disconnect from the 24/7 world we live in and to just relax in the middle of nature. Many people like to walk our property (10 acres) and explore, some look for animal tracks and other interesting things. We are very glad to have your family as guests and we look forward to your returning to visit us again. Come again. Thank you
