My husband and I were looking for a place to go to relax, recreate, and celebrate our Anniversary. The Bear Mountain Inn was the perfect place!! We requested an early check in with Jim in the midst of a most comfortable and informative booking. Sure enough, we got there and Cristyne was there, ready for our arrival. We wound up... More

This was a superb getaway! Our stay could not have been any better. The young Innkeepers Matt and Christyne were very kind and considerate. Our room was immaculate and the creaky steps,floor and even bed (LOL) made it merrier! It was like out of a storybook........the Inn's decor is unique, the breakfast was just right, our beverage options were very... More

I have mixed reviews about this inn....First of all we thoroughly enjoyed staying at the Inn and could consider doing so again. Room and setting was beautiful, very quiet and relaxing. Glad we came, but have some suggestions for the Inn Keepers and for those considering staying here. This Spring has been very cold in this part of the country... More

My husband and I traveled to The Bear Mountain Inn to celebrate our 2 Year Anniversary. From the time we arrived, Matt and Krystine were incredibly welcoming and attentive to our needs. I grew increasingly excited to stay there after we got the tour, which included a comfortable living area with a television (complete with games and DVD's), a beautiful... More

Recently took a two day trip with my best friend up to bear mountain inn and could not have asked for a better get away experience. The inn keeper was friendly and accommodating and everything was clean and ready upon arrival. We stayed in the Polo bear room, very sunny and perfect amount of space. Bed was comfortable with soft... More

The Bear Paw Suite was so cozy and featured an awesome whirlpool bath tub, a little fire place, a very nice shower and comfortable clean bed! The room was very clean and warm.

First, the inn was being run by a man and woman in their early 20's...which on it's own is not a big deal. The room was beautiful and well kept....BUT..On the night we arrived, the Inn ran out of propane! It was 10 degrees outside and 55 degrees in our room! It took 3 hours to have propane delivered and... More

Stayed in the sugar bear cottage with 2 pups and it was the perfect size - very clean and welcoming with all sorts of adorable knick knacks that made it feel more comfortable - even a journal written by other visitors. Unfortunately it rained for almost our entire stay and it was still too chilly to enjoy some of the... More
