Benedict Haid Farm is a family-owned business open, mostly for weddings, for the past 30 years. It features a large, historic 1860s hand-hewn log home on 400-acres, adjoining 10,000 acres of undeveloped corporate property. This is a nice place to get away for a while, or host a small retreat. The nearest commercial building is six miles away. :-)
During your stay pick any of the three large bedrooms with premium queen-sized beds, private bedroom decks, and equipped with their own privet bathrooms. The first person to the master bedroom enjoys the jacuzzi tub for relaxing all evening long. The property provides spacious parking, ample firewood, a complimentary gas grill with unlimited gas, and free use of electric car recharge station.
There is walking access to a pond, Margaret's Pond, roughly .8 mile from Black Bear Lodge. You will have access to the surrounding woods, Margaret's Pond, and the nearby farmland if you want to make such arrangements. There is a cattle farm on the property that we can arrange for you to see. If you are interested in holding an event, please look up our website and contact us. The newly-renovated barn is available to be rented for events, as well. It was renovated using logs from historic log cabins formerly located in the South Hills section of Charleston.
