Right down the street from the Cowboy Café and Daylight Donut! For the art workshop, it was within walking distance of the Headwater. Within walking distance of most anything and a very beautiful valley.

What a cute little place! This is cozy and homey and Liz is as friendly as can be. She even gave me a piece of petrified wood she found in the area. We had two nights with a campfire and s'mores and the inn is in a cute little town with some very good spots to eat. If you are...

Loved this place. The lady, Liz who runs the hotel is sweet as pie! She is a caring, kind, hard working person who epitomizes old fashioned values including Christian! So refreshing when coming from an over liberal big city in MN. She never stops working, yet finds time every night to hang out with her guests at the cozy fire...

Stayed there two (2) different nights. First time enjoyed the s'mores by the campfire. Raining second time, so no s'mores. Loved all the different bears in our room. You feel at home at the Black Bear.

Beautiful place run by a kind and caring family! Rooms are clean, comfortable, and decorated more like a cabin than a motel. The owner is energetic and incredibly helpful. It is clear she takes great pride in her work, as it shows throughout the property

Nice place. Flowers all around well-kept and welcoming. Room was welcoming and nice. Price was great. Would have preferred that they would have told us there was no cable TV until after we checked in. Videos available.

My mother and I stayed at the Black Bear Inn in Dubois, Wyoming at the end of August. Liz, the owner was a delight. We arrived late evening and she was worried that we had not eaten dinner so she shared hers. Yum! Everything at this haven made us feel at home. With the S mores in the evening along...

Great people in the office and very helpful in suggesting places of interest for us to visit . Fishing was terrific--Waterfalls were out of this world. Take clothes for different kinds of storms sunshine rain .etc. Walk the river walk in town places to sit and enjoy the river flowing by. Take photos so you can share the beauty .
