Welcome to the Adventure Cabin at

Black Bear Lodge

Living Room

Come get comfortable  in the living room with plenty of space for your

group. The  gathering space has a spot for everyone to sit and enjoy a

relaxing evening in front of the fire or watching a movie.  

A few things to note in the living room:

  • The sofa pulls out to a queen size bed. If you will be using the sofa bed  let us know if advance and we will make sure fresh linens are put on the bed and blankets are within easy reach. If you decide to use the sofa bed at the last minute, you'll find the linens in the master bedroom closet.

  • The light in the entryway is on a sensor so that it turns on automatically when entering and exiting. It turns off automatically within a coupe minutes.

  • The Television in the living room is a Smart TV. You'll find detailed operating instructions in the house guest book located on the coffee table.

  • The blinds in the living room are top down bottom up so you can pull down the top letting in light while maintaining your privacy.

  • Please make sure the door to the deck in closed tightly. It tends to blow open if left ajar. To lock the door you will need to lift up on the door handle and then lock the bolt...it can be stiff.

  • At Christmas all the lights can be operated with the little remotes in the coffee table remote basket…please don’t unplug them…that’ll hurt your back!

Kitchen

Dinner is served, so is breakfast and lunch and snacks. We promise

you'll be thrilled with the kitchen and how well it is stocked to make dining

during your vacation as enjoyable as home...or better!

A few things to note in the kitchen:

  • The stove and cook top are gas and light automatically. If a gas cook top is new to you, turn the knobs to the light icon and hold; you will hear a clicking and then the burner lights and you can adjust the height of the flame.  Use caution, ensuring you do not turn flames up high enough to sear the microwave or expand beyond the circumference of pans you may be using.

  • You'll find anything you might need in the cupboards and drawers. We like to think  that nothing has been overlooked. You'll find griddles, mixers and bowls of every size! Pots and pans and silpat mats to keep clean up easy. You'll even find parchment paper, tin foil and ziplocks for your convenience. With all that said, The cabinets without handles are not operable. Please do not try to force them open. We spend our vacations here too and keep personal items in those cabinets.

  • The trash pulls out from the cabinet next to the sink and a recycle bag is tucked between the trash can and the cupboard. Feel free to use the recycle bag and our cleaning staff will put the bag into the recycle bin after your stay.

  • Next to the sink you'll find a Fat Trapper box with a disposable bag inside, please only pour grease from cooking into the Fat Trapper bag. Please pay special attention to the Dirty Dozen plaque and use the disposal with care.  Please do not dispose of a large amount of egg shells or peels of any kind. The HOA is currently considering removing disposals if the drains continue to be clogged with these items.

  • The dining table seats six and is a great place to share dinner or drinks while the sunsets over the mountain.

  • The dishwasher is large enough to take care of a days worth of dishes and there is an ample supply of soap so you should not need to  purchase any for the duration of your stay.

  • You'll also find a fresh roll of paper towels and a fresh sponge when you arrive. Dish towels and clothes are located in the drawers.

Bedrooms

We are Proud to be an Official Purple Destination

 

Your stay is about to get even dreamier with PURPLE – enjoy a whole new level of

deep sleep and feel refreshed for your next adventure. As part of the PURPLE

experience our rooms feature PURPLE Hybrid Premier 3 mattresses for the best sleep

you’ve ever had on vacation. The PURPLE Hybrid Premier mattress provides “no pressure support” absorbing pressure and supporting your back’s natural alignment so you feel like you’re floating. You’ll sleeps cool all night with 2500+ open air channels that neutralize body heat to keep you at the optimal sleep temperature.

 

Each bed also features the New PURPLE Harmony pillows and the original PURPLE Plush pillows.  

 

  • The Harmony pillow is the only pillow with Purple Grid Hex technology, the Purple Harmony instantly adapts to your head and neck for personalized, premium comfort. Only the Purple® Harmony Pillow has continuous airflow through over 1500 open air channels in the Purple Grid™ Hex to help you keep a cool head through the night.

 

  • The plush pillow allows you to choose your perfect comfort zone by zipping or unzipping the adjustable extensions on either side of the pillow. The oh-so-huggable "smart fluff" rebounds with interlocking poly fiber balls technology which gives you more support and an all-night cuddly feel.

 

  • If you’re a die-hard feather pillow fan you will find multiple feather pillows and fresh pillow cases ready to be used in the closets of each bedroom and you’re welcome to use them for a great night sleep as well.

 

 The finishing touches of your best night sleep include sleeping on sheets as soft as a baby panda and as stretchy as a super hero! 

 

  • Sheets are super stretchy and crazy comfortable. That means you actually sink into your mattress rather than floating on top. Insanely breathable, so they don’t trap body heat. This means they help regulate your temperature so you’re never too hot or too cold. Made from bamboo-based material, few things in the world are as touchable and snuggable as Purple® Sheets. They’re so soft you can’t help but wrap yourself up in them and sigh contentedly.

                Due to changes in turn over procedures some stays may not include Purple Sheets but we do our best to make sure you enjoy the full experience

A few additional notes about our bedrooms:

  • The Sleep Great box is our gift to you. Please feel free to explore a great nights sleep

         and take the items with you to continue your sleep Adventure at home.

  • There are two bedrooms, each with a private en-suite bathroom. One bedroom has

        a king bed while the other bedroom has a queen bed. 

  • Both bedrooms are equipped with Smart or Roku enabled televisions and basic cable.

​       Please see the in-house guest book if you have any issues operating the televisions. All televisions are

       set up with Netflix streaming. You are welcome to log into your accounts but don't forget to log out when you leave.

       (please do not log out of the Netflix account for guests)

  • The King bedroom has an OSIM Massage chair available for guest use. Please read the instruction card attached to the chair and the detailed instructions located in the in-house guest book. 

  • Fans in both bedrooms are operated with a tug chain on the fan.

  • There is a humidifier in the bedroom closet. This is a whole house humidifier and works best if situated in the living room while bedroom doors are left open. If you use the humidifier please leave it out for the cleaning staff to disinfect it before returning it to the closet.

Bathrooms

With three full bathrooms in the Adventure Cabin, no one  will have

an excuse for missing first tracks in the morning and no one will

need to wait to freshen up before dinner.

A few things to note about the bathrooms:

  • The primary bathroom for the unit in located closest to the living

        space and has a deep soaking tub for relaxing weekends or

        sore legs. You will find shampoo, conditioner and body wash provided. There is a blow dryer in the drawer as                    well as feminine hygiene products if you're in a pinch.  Extra toilet paper is also located inside the cabinet.

 

  • Pool and hot tub towels are located in the cabinet under the sink in the primary bathroom.

  • The bathroom in the King Bedroom has a shower built for two!  With two shower heads and personal temperature and pressure controls this shower does double duty for one or two guests at a time.  You'll find shampoo, conditioner and body wash provided. There is a blow dryer and flat iron in the drawers. Extra toilet paper is also located inside the cabinet.

  • The bathroom in the Queen Bedroom has a fixed and handheld shower option.  You'll find shampoo, conditioner and body wash provided. There is a blow dryer and flat iron in the drawers. Extra toilet paper is also located inside the cabinet.

  • We provide an ample supply of bath towels, hand towels and wash clothes for your stay. We also provide high quality  La Fresh makeup remover wipes in all the bathrooms and we kindly ask that guest refrain from using the white towels to remove makeup. We hate tossing towels and hate charging for damaged items if our launder service is unable to save linens from makeup damage.

  • The Adventure Cabin is equipped  with an On-Demand Tank-less Water Heater. We like to remind guests that On-Demand does not equal Instant!  You will have all the hot water you need for your group to shower as often or as long as desired but you will need to wait for 1-3 minutes (depending on the outside temperature) for the water to reach temperature. If you're first up in the morning you'll have the longest wait while the sloth in your family will benefit from your initiative.
