I recently had a nice stay at the Bear Mountain Inn for my daughter's wedding. She had the reception at the Inn and some of the wedding guests stayed for a few days after the big night. Check in was smooth, even with all the wedding guests arriving at the same time. The Inn has been renovated and the rooms... More

My husband and I decided to spent the weekend at Bear Mountain and it was lovely. Definitely it was out of our comfort zone, but it was perfect place to be out of the city, connect with nature, do hiking and sleep early! We had brunch and dinner at the 1915 restaurant, Kenny and the bartender were fantastic. They're very... More

The Bear Mountain Inn is a lovely place to spend a weekend. The Inn was built around 100 years ago, and still has the original rustic stone and pine decor. The rooms, however, are completely updated and very comfortable. My room, 302, was enormous. It had a fridge, microwave, Keurig and satellite TV. The bathroom was beautiful and well-stocked. The...

Thank you very much sharing your comments. We are so pleased that your getaway was all that you desired. The Inn is an outstanding place to visit given its age and history. We try very hard to keep things natural and rustic so our visitors can see how the building may have looked so long ago. The renovation of our... More

Quite apart from having a superb management team, the Inn has all the comforts of home. The rooms are exceptionally clean, the food is delicious, the service is first-rate and the atmosphere (in- and outside the Inn) is serene and memorable. On top of that, extraordinarily professional and customer-service driven, Christi, her daughter and the Inn staff generally are some... More

We were a party of 20 and while the food was very good, the service, or more specifically, the management of the service left much to be desired. I am all for minimal staffing, but if you are going to have three waiters for 100 people, the least you could do is to have pitchers of water/juice and a choice... More

There are three options to stay at Bear Mountain: the Bear Mountain Inn, the Stone Cottages, and the Overlook Lodge (which is currently closed for renovations). I recently completed a 4-night stay in the Stone Cottages. The cottages are stout structures that were built in the 1930s. They consist of 6 ensuite, hotel rooms with queen beds that surround a...

Overall it was fine as a place to rest in between hikes by that's it. The rooms are clean and have appropriate mountain decor. Noise travels easily since it is an old building, which a can be problematic if you have children or a frisky couple staying next door. The air conditioner has two settings- arctic blast or off.

Thank you very much for sharing your comments with us.

You are also correct the building did celebrate its 100 year birthday this year, so noise can... More

I stayed here for one night as part of a wedding, so I really don't have much to say about the surrounding area or hiking, outdoors activities etc. The facility itself was quite good though, with rooms that have been clearly updated to modern standards (shower was so nice) and pleasant but modern decor throughout the inn. The rooms are... More

A rustic classic that has been restored to modern comfort and convenience. Memorable facilities: enormous lodge, pristine lake, excellent zoo, etc. But it really is the staff members that make this place shine.
