Located on pristine Little St. Germain Lake in St. Germain, Wisconsin, Black Bear Lodge represents an assortment of lodging cabins located along 2,100 feet of shoreline. Hit hard during the recent economic downturn that affected discretionary vacation spending, the property was ultimately transferred to bank ownership.
In 2012 as the bank began seeking a permanent owner, IDM was hired to oversee all Hotel Management Services. IDM hired all of the employees, initiated capital improvements and is in the midst of a major rebranding.
Due to the successful operations, capital, and branding changes overseen by IDM, Black Bear Lodge has since sold to new ownership who currently operates the property year-round. They continues to offer cottages and one -and two-bedrooms suites, and provide a guest experience ranging from warm weather activities such fishing and boating through winter activities such as cross country skiing and ice skating at the resort.
