Great Bear Lodge
         Opened in March 2001, the Great Bear Lodge was a instant hit. Located a mere 5 miles from Cedar Point, Great Bear Lodge is successful all year long. I had the chance to stay the Great Bear Lodge numerous times, and below is a few points I would like to share about the place.

  • Atmosphere - Wonderful! The entire lodge exterior looks like a wooden cabin, while the interior is decorated greatly to give guests a "wilderness feel."

  • Location - Terrible. While it is located near a expressway and Cedar Point, the lodge is practically in the parking lot for a supermarket and is right next to a mall. Which is strange for a place with a wilderness theme.

  • Rooms - The rooms are done up very nice - even the "cheaper" rooms don't lack when it comes to being decorated nicely. The kids cabin room, is very neat as it features a special area of the room for kids! The most expensive suites offer a second floor, which has a bed and bathroom.

  • Water Park - Kept at a very comfortable 80 degrees, visiting the water park is also a fun time. At the center of the park is a large water playhouse, which people of all ages will love. Other attractions include a lazy river, large raft slides, body slides, hot tubes, kiddy areas, and a regular pool. During the summer months, a outdoor pool is open.

  • For what ages? -  The lodge has something for everyone. Besides the water park, there is an arcade, two restaurants (one with a bar), and a convention center. Not-to-mention the theme of the hotel will be enjoyed by all.

      All in all, the Great Bear Lodge is a great place to visit any time of the year. While the location isn't the greatest, the overall atmosphere of the resort is all around fun.
