The Black Bear Lodge boasts all the trappings of a remote mountain retreat though it’s a drive of only 10 minutes from Beckley, southern West Virginia’s largest city. Surrounded by seven plus acres of forest with an evergreen understory of laurel, the lodge offers exceptional privacy and year-round beauty.

Though it appears rustic—incorporating two hewn log structures imported from Virginia—the lodge was solidly built in 2001 on a concrete block foundation and is expertly finished with modern and vintage ornamentation. Buried utilities and a graveled drive and parking area help emphasize its seemingly remote character. Balconies at the rear of the house and multiple front entrances encourage outdoor living. The lodge is ideal for a vacation home or year-round residence.

Near many of the area’s travel and tourism amenities, the lodge is a five-minute drive from the New River Gorge National River at Grandview, a seven-minute drive from the Beckley-Raleigh County airport, a seven-minute drive to Little Beaver State Park, a 12-minute drive to Glade Springs Resort, and a 15- to 20-minute drive to Beckley’s hospitals and principal retail districts. The lodge is a drive of approximately 40 miles and 40 minutes from Lewisburg.
