Originally called the Sun House, the Black Bear Lodge (formerly known as Beidler House) is our largest cabin. Built in 1975, the Beidler was just the second “green” building in Ohio. Beidler has had many uses, but it now is available for rentals for your group up to 13 people.  If Beidler is too large for your needs, please check out our smaller cabins, or if this seems too small, ask us for additional options.

Beidler House is nestled in the pines and is a beautiful setting for your weekend getaway. From the porch, you can see the pool, and even the lake in the fall and winter months. Beidler provides a full kitchen, a recently rebuilt dining, sitting area, large meeting space, and many new additions including oak flooring, two new bathrooms and a deck. Beidler has two lofts for sleeping. Beidler also has a wood stove, and we have firewood on site for your use.
