I grew up in a home just a short distance from this property. My grandfather was one of the carpenters who built this home in the 1980's and I have always loved it. My husband and I are so honored to be the caretakers!
Kim Zdanowicz purchased this lodge in 2013
To us, this house feels like family. One thing we have loved to see this past year are extended families gathering and reconnecting.
The house and the family are great. Kim is an amazing host. I will be booking again in the future !
Enjoyed spending time with all the family in this spacious kid friendly lodge. Plenty of room for all. Setting very remote yet close to the grand canyon of Pa. and Wellsboro. Would love to return another time!
Overall we really enjoyed our stay at the Black Bear Lodge. We did have some trouble finding the place because the GPS dropped us off in the middle of a field basically after an unexpected detour. All in all it was a great experience aside from a few hiccups. There was a huge wasp nest outside the main bathroom window. It would have been appreciated that that had been taken care of prior to our arrival. There were actual wasp flying around in the bathroom. Another problem was for such a big house there was not a lot of serving dishes for entertaining larger parties. If you are thinking you might need it (kitchen items) just bring it. We didn't even have a working can opener, there was a broke one and one that was so worn it couldn't even pop through the can. We had to run out to the store to get one, don't worry though we donated that can opener to the house so you are covered! Aside from those issues we really enjoyed our time at Black Bear Lodge and would recommend it to anyone thinking about staying in the area. Also there are only two air conditioner units for the entire house. We were not bothered by it, but just wanted to bring it up in the review just incase you are a hot body that needs a crisp house. There were large ceiling fans that made it quite nice for all of us!
Black Bear Lodge is very accommodating. With 3 bedrooms plus a loft it was exactly what we needed for our family of 9. The two living areas also added to the roomy feel. We also put the oversized 2 car garage to good use along with the pool and ping-pong tables. Kim is an excellent host who is anxious to help out in any way she can. If you are looking for a secluded, country cabin rental in the Wellsboro PA area, check this one out!
Great place very big feels like your at home! Amazing sightseeing! Sit on the deck you'll see plenty of wildlife it's really amazing here definitely definitely would stay here again in a heart beat! kim and her husband are very wonderful people very helpful and very friendly help you with anything you might need help with very very kind and wonderful family!
Our family of 6 stayed here for a long weekend in October 2015 for the first time. Kim was an absolute pleasure to work with, and so were her parents. They were very attentive to our needs and made us feel very welcome. The lodge is gorgeous, extremely well kept and very kid-friendly. The view is beautiful as well! Unfortunately, it rained a lot while we were there, so we didn't really get to sight see a lot, but we had a blast anyway just hanging out at the lodge. It's very relaxing, and a great get-a-way. My 4 year old daughter is already begging me to go back! We are all definitely planning on staying there again next year. Thank you to Kim and her family for their wonderful hospitality!
