My boyfriend are sadly leaving Bear Mountain Inn after the best weekend we have ever had. We rented out the Sugar Bear Cottage for two nights and we wished we could stay a lifetime. Aside from the cabin being cozy and romantic the Bear Mountain Inn offered way more than just a 5 star roof over our heads for two... More

I had a fantastic time at Bear Mountain Inn! My fiance and I stayed in the Sugar Bear Cottage for 4 nights and couldn't be happier. It had everything we needed and was total privacy from the rest of the Inn. Breakfast in the morning was delicious, and everyday was something different. The lake was gorgeous and we had a... More

My husband and I spent one night at the inn on a trip from Portland back to Boston. It is located on a very lovely lake. The inn has direct access and there is a small private beach with kayaks for guest use. The local small towns are quaint and fun to explore. There is a route around the lake... More

We both work very long hours and needed a few days of peace. We found what we needed at the Bear Mountain Inn. After conducting an extensive search of many other properties - that were described as worn out, in disrepair, over-priced, crowded, and worse, we came upon this property. TripAdvisor reviews of others helped us make our decision. All... More

This bed and breakfast is the epitome of perfection. We arrived on our first day and were greeted by the owner and given a tour of the breathtaking grounds then shown our room. To start of with the room, it was beautiful with a fireplace, tv, ac, gorgeous view of the lake, a shower, and a huge jacuzzi tub. My... More

The owner Jim Kerrigan was a fantastic host. The house felt like home and had everything we needed. There is wifi in the rooms, endless supply of snacks/beverages and the breakfasts were delicious. There are kayaks and paddle boards available at the foot of the lake. S'mores at night. Highly recommend!

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
