First of all, the setting was beautiful as you would expect from state park type lodging. The rooms were well appointed and looked like they were decorated with a Cabela's catalog. However, this is were the charm ends. Finding the lodge provided additional stress to an already long day of driving (10 hours) and their address is not recognized by... More

My wife and I stayed in one of the stone cottages at the Bear Mountain Inn Overlook Lodge. My general opinion is that its a quaint, average place for a weekend retreat. Acknowledging that the stone cottages were built in the 1930's (I think), the lodge, stone cottages and grounds are adequate. Sadly, the parking lot at the cottages had... More

Stayed here for a wedding on the ground floor of the lodge. We were on the second floor and could not hear any noise from the wedding, despite being right above it (closest room facing the lake). First off, be sure that your GPS can find this place. The address did not come up in our (non apple) GPS nor... More

My man and I wanted to spend the day in the area and decided to spend Saturday night here. I am so glad we chose this place. It was quiet and so very relaxing. Check-in/check-out was quick and the staff were friendly. It rained for about an hour after we arrived, but the rest of the day was clear and... More

We have known the formally named Bear Mountain Inn since the early 1950's. During that time it has been through many versions, upgrades and down grades. The latest version is a decidedly upscale improvement. Although we did not stay overnight, we did look the place over and had a most enjoyable lunch in the upstairs dinning area. The first floor...

Make sure that before you book a room, you call the Lodge to ask whether they have a wedding event taking place during the time of your stay. We booked a room through their online system for a quick one night getaway and for some reason they put us as non-wedding guests on the first floor right next to the... More

Please accept our apologies - both for your inconvenience, and your discomfort during the early parts of your stay. It is absolutely not policy to place non-wedding guests in a location where they might be disrupted by events taking place in the Lodge - and wherever possible, we make all efforts to ensure this does not happen. This was certainly... More

My husband and I decided somewhat impulsively to leave Pittsburgh (snow, snow, freezing rain, and more snow) to go to the Hudson Valley region (winter wonderland and tolerable temperatures-good timing I guess) and NYC. We made reservations at a fantastic off-season rate on line at the Overlook Lodge. On arrival, we were greeted by a sign on the entrance that... More

Thank you so much for sharing your recent experience at Bear Mountain. Your lovely recommendations are terrific.....and originally begin from western PA myself, I can attest to its beauty!

If you live in the NYC area, an overnight at the Overlook Lodge at Bear Mountain is the perfect getaway. There are 3 hotel options in the park, these being the Inn itself, the Stone Lodges and the Overlook Lodge. If you've got six couples, the Stone Lodges are great because you and your party basically own one for the... More

Thank you so much for sharing your feedback regarding Bear Mountain. Your love of the area and the park are apparent. Fortunately (or unfortunately - depending on your perspective), your love of Bear Mountain is shared with many throughout the valley and tri-state area - particularly in the summer.

Came in from the cold and snow recently for our third winter weekend stay. Overlook Lodge offers clean, comfortable, well-appointed rooms with stunning views worth coming back for.
