Very good but a good distance from the main inn. Very comfortable bed and very quiet. Other than morning coffee or tea nothing available until you return to the main inn. The breakfast was not the best with very little available and only for a very short period of time. They had serve yourself waffles but only one station for... More

I just returned from a two night stay at one of the Bear Mountain Inn's Stone Cottages. Upon arrival, you must first drive to the main building to check in before driving to the stone cottages, which we did not mind at all. However, walking into the cottage was a let down. The "beautiful front porch" was dusty, full of... More

My son had a lacrosse game at West Point so I booked a room in the cottages at the Bear Mountain Inn. What a huge disappointment. I arrived at night and it was difficult to find the cottage and once I did - the room was filthy, ants on the carpet, musty - the smoke detector in the room had... More

We stayed here recently for a work trip to the Hudson Valley area. This was definitely a great choice for lodging and breakfast. Ultimately this was aa great experience. They had the best rates in the area. Surprising considering this is a historic lodge situated on a bluff with an amazing view of the Hudson River. The main room of... More

We stayed here 25 years ago and were happy that they finally finished renovations and reopened. This time was a superb stay and altogether too short. The front desk staff started off our stay with a friendly easy check in, our room was wonderful and roomy. Cool amenity was a cocktail shaker and glasses in the room! Sadly, the beautiful... More

I will paste the glowing review I wrote about the Overlook Lodge below. Unfortunately, things have changed. There is no longer a front desk attendant at the Overlook Lodge. That’s fine. Breakfast is no longer served at the Overlook Lodge. Instead, the breakfast which comes included with the room rate is available at the Tapas Bar within the Bear Mountain... More

I stayed at the Bear Mountain Inn for a recent wedding. We stayed in the overlook lodge. It is a very nice area. Unfortunately our issue with this place had everything to do with the service. We started off with being checked into a dirty room. Although the lodge was completely booked there was no one stationed at the service... More

My husband and I had a great stay at the Lodge. We were able to bring our dogs, XC ski, hike and enjoy the winter beauty. Very quiet mid week in February! It was rustic and "lodge-like", but clean and nice. The Inn is beautifully renovated, but has it's historic charm. Dinner at the 1915 restaurant was excellent and we... More

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.
