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...

Due to the cottages location they are a little more rustic and remote than our other styles... More

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. The... More

Thank you very much for sharing your comments with us. I'm glad that you enjoyed your room and that our décor was to your liking, through the renovation we tried to maintain the historical feel of the Inn, while giving some modern amenities. 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. Helpful, welcoming, friendly, patient, and truly GLAD to go the extra mile. I teach about customer service all over the world, so I know "great service" when... More

My husband and I stayed here on our way home from an event in CT, chose it because of its location on the Hudson and in the mountains. The inn is in a beautiful, rustic old lodge, with a lot of character. Our room was very comfortable, clean, comfortable bed, small bar area with wine glasses, refrig, Keurig and coffe... More

The scenery is breathtaking. I've been during the winter and the spring, and I'd love to go again during the summer. The ice-skating rink, hikes on Bear Mountain and fantastic restaurant make this an easy and fun weekend away for couples, friends or family. Location: Just an hour from NYC, and less than 20 minutes from Woodbury Common Outlets. Food:... More

Stayed at Overlook Lodge this time. Rooms are CLEAN and updated. Views of the Hudson outstanding. One problem is that you will need to drive to the lake and dining unless you are younger or in better shape than I am. Walking back up the hill is tough. At at the Inn's tapas bar. EXCELLENT small plate dining! Highly recommended.... More
