I really love this place, but its the potential and the buildings that are amazing, versus the reality. This is not a chain hotel so don't expect perfect service. Things have become a bit touristy over time, but the value is very good, a room is about $150 a night off season. Hiking is great, the carousel, pool, ice skating... More

Thank you for sharing your feedback. We absolutely agree that great service should be synonymous with a stay at Bear Mountain, and I have taken the liberty of forwarding your thoughts directly to our operating managers – specifically the Front Desk and Restaurant. Thank you for recommending the addition of some historical data. We are actually in the process of... More

On a recent getaway, lovely companion and I spent a night at the newly renovated Inn. It had been many years since either of us had been here and we'd heard there had been significant renovations. Much of the rustic charm is still here albeit with an attempt at a 4 star treatment. We stayed in a two bath king... More

We had the after party for a West Point event catered at Bear Mountain, and everything was excellent. The food was outstanding (you've got to try the Roast Beef), and the service was terrific. Hats off to Dina, Joe, and the crew for making this an unforgettable experience. The function room we reserved was beautiful, and you can't beat the... More

We only stayed one night, the day before Christmas Eve to prep mentally for the family visit. Visited the spa which was on the same floor as our room, and that was kinda nice. Great massage. The inn itself is gorgeous, clean and beautifully decorated for the holidays, lots of sitting areas to enjoy. We spent a lot of time... More

It took a long time for the renovations to be completed but they did a really nice job and the result is a lodge that feels like it could be located very far from NY but this lodge is not. It's a minutes drive from the Bear Mountain bridge to the Inn. The rooms are really clean and have a... More

We could not be more excited that you enjoyed your stay at Bear Mountain! Thank you so much for sharing your experience. We would LOVE it if there were fireplaces in the lobby of the Inn as well. The Inn was originally built in 1915 however, and we are thrilled to have maintained the history of the building. We can't... More

Staying at the Bear Mountain Inn is a treat. The park itself offers great activities (zoo, ice rink, lake for boating, hiking trails) so the recent renovations to the Inn put you at the heart of it, making the experience different from most getaways we've had. And even if you dont have fond memories of the place from your childhood... More

Thank you for sharing your kind thoughts!

We are working on putting together historical information on the park - the problem is that there is just so much!... More

My husband and I had our wedding at the Overlook Lodge this weekend and stayed in the lodge and the cottages! Everything was wonderful and beautiful.

My husband & I met at the Inn in 1966. We were part of a group of 30-35 college kids hired to stay on the property and work the summer at the Inn or at the Seven Lakes Dr. beaches. He was a 'townie', I from far across the state. Most of our original group returned for 3 summers. We... More

We drove to this beautiful spot with visiting family. The Inn from the exterior looked beautiful set against the blue sky. First off we were seated in the Tapas Bar by the serving area. I had a clear view of kids seats stacked up, cutlery and other clutter - I should have taken that as a sign! Our waitress Nicole... More
