The Big Manistee is reporting warming water temps. 3/15/20 they were at 38 degrees! The Black Bear Inn is located only a few miles from the Big Manistee River! Head on up for some tranquility in this time of chaos!
Located in the Manistee National Forest, The Black Bear Inn features four cabin style motel rooms and one two bedroom cabin. Each room has been renovated with our guests needs in mind. You'll find a different, fun, lodge style theme in each room. The Rainbow Room is inspired by the Rainbow Trout- décor in this room reflects all things fishing! The Wolf Den features Wolf Décor, The Buck Stop is filled with Deer Décor and you guessed it, the Bear Den features Black Bear Décor. The two bedroom cabin is a little different for guests who don't quite enjoy lodge décor and features a modern industrial theme with open pipe shelves, copper sinks, and custom bunk beds. All rooms have free WIFI, Dish Network Television, Coffee, Creamer, Sugar, Microwaves, Mini or Full Size Refrigerators, Hot Showers, Dishware, Toasters and plenty of linens and towels!

The Black Bear Inn has been part of and served the Wellston community for several years before we acquired the property in 2015. After modernizing and renovating the lodge-style décor we opened in 2016 and immediately found ourselves fully booked in the first month! The rooms were originally themed and those themes remain today! We were even able to update and re-use some of the signage. Our intent was to keep some of the history surrounding the Black Bear Inn alive! We live locally with our three children and work regular jobs but try to remain available for our guests 24/7. We don't have an office or staff on site in an attempt to keep our rates low, but we are only a call, text, or email away! We also have cleaning staff to assist with your needs.
We are thankful for each of our guests who support our small businesses in our rural area!
