The History of Indian Bear Lodge and Winery

Established in 2001, Indian Bear Lodge is a family-friendly destination in Knox County.

Named for totem poles discovered on the property, Indian Bear was originally home to an unfinished log cabin. The main lodge was built around this cabin, and began operating as a bed and breakfast.

To meet guest demand, Indian Bear built four cabins to the property in 2003. Within the next few years, two Carriage Houses and Lake View Ranch were built on the Indian Bear property, along with the addition of Little Rock Lodge.

In 2016, Indian Bear Winery opened, claiming the title of the only operating wintery in Knox County. Our state-of-the-art wine production facility was built to incorporate wood from a 100-year-old barn! Indian Bear Winery features a dining room, wine tasting room and event space.

Today, Indian Bear Lodge and Winery sits on more than 200 acres of beautiful countryside and features lodging, dining and activities for the whole family!
