Surrounded by the Absaroka & Wind River Mountains, in the adorable western town of Dubois, sits The Black Bear Inn. Built in the 1950s, purchased by our parents who shared our passion for the mountains. A quaint inn with an informal family atmosphere, we pride ourselves on our personal service, inviting rooms and s'mores nightly. Start your day with our in room coffee, tea and hot choc. Enjoy a short walk to downtown Dubois' dining, museums and shopping. Sign up for free fly fishing casting lessons & schedule our guides to take you out into our little slice of paradise to catch rainbow or brown trout.
After a day of adventure, join us by the fire to make s'mores. Stop by the lobby to choose a complimentary movie & popcorn. The Black Bear Inn is the perfect place to begin your adventures. Our inn is eco-friendly with a car charging station on site and handcrafted bath soap and gardens galore.
Every evening that weather permits (which is most evenings), guests and staff of The Bear gather down near the river's edge to make memories that last a lifetime. We visit and tell stories around the campfire while we make traditional and specialty s'mores. We've had chocolate taste tests and new interesting ingredients while we share the days adventures together.
Most nights we laugh till tears run. Then as the night winds down the guests walk up past the gushing flower gardens and pots to the lobby to choose a movie or two, grab a bowl of complimentary popcorn, shop for souvenirs, shoot a quick game of pool in the lobby and disappear into their rooms to recharge on our super comfy beds.
Our fast free WIFI is there for all who need to download their pictures of the days adventures, check emails or post pictures of their exciting vacation on their social media sites. We have ample plugs to recharge those batteries too!
Wind River Fly Fitter has 4 guides this year to make sure that everyone who wants to try their hand at fly fishing gets the chance. Each afternoon the guides teach FREE (a $120 value) fly fishing casting lessons in the park near the motel. They are eager to take you out to practice what you learned for a small fee for an evening wade trip.
Expert fishermen/women and beginners alike will find fishing with WRF guides to be nothing short of paradise. They will take you to places others only dream of fishing. Our "southern" hospitality will blow you away as they pay close attention to your needs while out in the wild. All the gear is included (except your choice of flies) in the reasonable guide prices.
