The location was lovely and very private. The Overlook Lodge accommodations are nice and comfortable, however there is no staff at the Lodge, nor is there any assistance or even telephone service. We needed help with something and had to get back in the car and drive all the way to the Inn just to get some assistance. The second... More

The room was right in Bear Mountain and had spectacular views!. The front desk clerk was simply amazing. She had ideas for dinner and we had a wonderful discussion about the beautiful décor in the inn. Because we are NYS residents, there was a discount to boot! Didn't expect much of a room in a state park, but was pleasantly... More

We stopped here for a night on our way from Buffalo to Newport, Rhode Island. The property is very non-traditional. The views from the Overlook are beautiful. The spa was AMAZING - best massage I've ever had! Some interesting guests smoking and drinking on the lodge balcony, but they were friendly. We talked about coming back with our 4 boys.... More

We booked an extended stay here with our kids and Dog while we were awaiting the closing of our new home. Since we live in the middle of the hustle and bustle of NYC, we thought a nice relaxing nature stay for 3 weeks would be perfect for the kids and dog and all of us. We have visited the... More

I stayed here with my brother and my dog at the end of a hot hike on the Appalachian Trail. The lodge was absolutely perfect - a spacious room overlooking the lake in the distance and a little off the beaten path. There were only a few of us staying in the lodge at the time so it was very... More

Went to Bear Mountain via Groupon. Stayed June 15th through 17th. Bethany and Bobby were helpful at the front desk. Whatever you do, don't stay at the Lodge!! Here are the CONS of our trip: We were suppose to stay at the Lodge. It had NO elevators (my husband is disabled) and they do not tell you that when you... More

The room was adequate and clean with a coffee pot and refrigerator but no frills. The hallway smelled a bit musty but the view from the porch is gorgeous. Maintenance was quick to fix the Wi-Fi. A continental breakfast was included and located in the Main Lounge. It's a beautiful area with lots to do. The bonus is that it... More

Went here because I got a groupon, the hotel was very nice. The rooms were clean. The staff was friendly and helpful. The only downside was that bear mountain state park's pool was closed so there was no where to swim.
