We have stayed here two times with each time being an enjoyable experience in a mountain lodge type setting. The Overlook Lodge is where we always stay, opting for lakeview king bed rooms which are new, CLEAN, and comfortable! The staff is friendly and are really down to earth. The restaurant offers a contemporary menu with a variety of choices.... More

It was a bit hard to find the lodge as you have to go around the actual mountain, get into a traffic circle and then make a quick turn. Once we got the hang of it we were okay though. To get to the lodge, which is located at the end of the property that you turn onto, you drive... More

We stayed for one night after going to the Octoberfest. For the price, its ok. Its a upscale motel. The breakfast was a muffin and coffee. The best part of the lodge was location. Walking distance to the Octoberfest. The free wifi stinks. Even in the lobby Icouldnt find it. The rooms were clean and basic.

We were married labor day weekend at the Overlook Lodge at Bear Mountain. We planned a whole weekend of activities around the Park and at the Lodge. Every single staff member working throughout the weekend was MORE than accommodating, especially with our large group of guests (over 100!). The day of the wedding, it rained, and Brittany and Rich were... More

This lodge overlooks Hessian Lake and the Hudson River. The setting is spectacular while the rooms are modest and cozy. Nearby is Bear Mountain Inn with its fine 1915 Restaurant. Nice get away well worth visiting.

I wanted to catch the autumn foliage before it faded and I did not want to drive more than one hour or so upstate New York. I remembered going to Bear Mt. as a child and decided to give it a chance. I spoke with Erin who helped me decide between Bear Mt. Inn and the Overlook Lodge both in... More
