BLACK BEAR INN FOR SALE IN DRUMMOND, WI
The Black Bear Inn has been with us since 1948 providing home-cooked meals, refreshments and a sociable place for new friends and old friends to meet and relax. While it has changed hands over the years, the cozy north woods character has remained the same. Knotty pine walls and a gorgeous parquet ceiling in the dining room make this 75-100 seat eating area warm and inviting. The dining room and its classic stone fireplace were added onto the bar in 1952. A 4-unit motel was added to the business at that time, too.
The oval-shaped bar is a favorite spot for watching sports and especially for cheering on your favorite pro-football team. Packers? Vikings? Bears? We are a mixture of transplants up here, and you’ll find all sorts of team fans bellied up to the bar.
In recent years, the Black Bear has been home to Drummond’s fastest growing sport – Bar Stool Races. Contestants shoot down a snow hill behind the Black Bear on uniquely decorated bar stools fitted with skis. The event takes place every Presidents Weekend and is a fundraiser for the local snowmobile club.
With so many types of outdoor recreation in this area, the Black Bear is in a great location to gather all the hungry and thirsty guests and residents. Twin Lakes National Forest Campground is about 9 miles away. I first visited the Black Bear back in the mid-70’s while camping at Twin Lakes. There are dozens and dozens of lakes in a 10-mile radius of this business that provide great fishing year round. In the fall, the hunting season begins, and hunters move through the area from September to January. The area is home to Nordic ski and bicycle races that draw national entrants and fans. The American Birkebeiner ski race is February, the Firehouse 50 road bicycle race is in August, and the Fat Tire Festival Mountain Bike Races are in September.
The business location is about as good as you can find – right on US Hwy 63 and about 30 miles north of Hayward and 30 miles south of Ashland – a great stopping place for those headed to Lake Superior. It is also located on a year round motorized recreational trail – handy access for both 4-wheelers and sledders.
The operation is turnkey and ready to make it your own. Call or email for an appointment to tour the Black Bear – your dream business in beautiful northwestern Wisconsin.
Directions: In Drummond, WI – at intersection of Hwy 63 and Wisconsin Ave.
