Welcome to the Lil Black Bear Inn!

Jill and Jim would like to welcome you to the Lil Black Bear Inn.

            Whether searching for a new experience or looking for a romantic getaway, it’s our passion of hospitality and lifelong dream of running a business that drives us towards being the best we can be. After many years of foster care and helping families, our drive to fulfill our dream of running an inn grew stronger each day until we finally established the bed and breakfast in 2016.

            Together we found inspiration for the inn’s name from a daylily grown in Indiana. The name of the daylily honors the late Little Bear – a black Pomeranian. The room names themselves are derived from flowers: The Lily, The Morning Glory, The Moon Glory, The Lavender, The Bluebell, and The Petunia.

            Our goal is for every room to have a unique and comfortable atmosphere, and each stay to be a new experience – constantly striving to be welcoming and for the inn to feel like home away from home. It is with a great understanding how difficult being away from our pets can be. They’re family after all, therefore making the bed and breakfast pet friendly felt right.

            While being a romantic destination for couples, we are more than happy to provide for families with children. There are many locations to explore around Brown County and we try our best to be active in the community.

       Whether it’s your first trip to Brown County or you visit often, we can’t wait to see you here.

With Love,

Jim and Jill
