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

I stayed at Bear Mountain Inn's Overlook Lodge for a wedding last weekend. The site is beautiful but the hotel was underwhelming. The rooms were fine but there was no heat over night -and it was a really cold night. The wifi wasn't working during the bulk of our stay, so I ended up buying an international data package so...

Let me begin by saying I would highly recommend trying to stay at the Inn versus the lodge or anywhere you can better get your money's worth. I do not understand the 5 star ratings. Fall's "high-season" price on a stormy October day for over $300 (One day, including taxes) didn't get us a lodge fireplace as advertised (which was... More

Absolutely beautiful, relaxing location, with such a cosy feel to it. Most of the lake view was obstructed by trees but it was so peaceful and quiet. The attention to detail in the decorating of the rooms and lodge did not go unnoticed, very quaint. Bear mountain is just a short drive away and well worth the trip to get... More

I know it's only October (it was a cold and wet day in October), even so, not having the option of any heat in our room is the kind of thing I would expect of a Super 8 motel. Stained carpets and only one bedside table for a kingsize bed, ditto. It is not what I expect from a $280... More

September 2014 I stayed at the Bear Mountain Lodge at the beginning of September; I also spent a good amount of time at the Inn. It was a great experience. The Inn and the Overlook Lodge are beautiful and cozy. I can’t wait to go back with my husband and my family. In my opinion, both places are an ideal... More

Bear Mountain is a beautiful scenic area. The driveway up to the Overlook Lodge is charming. However, when you get to the front desk, and they tell you that the lakefront rooms do not really have a view of the lake, they mean it. The trees have grown up in front of the windows so that the lakefront view is... More

The inn, located in the state park, is historic, old and roomy, with a great view of the Hudson, or at least it had a great view a number of years ago, before the trees became so lush. The main reception area is filled with rustic furniture, would be a great place to play cards on a quiet evening. Routine... More

The Overlook Lodge is up on a hill on the Bear Mountain property. There is the main inn, cottages and the Overlook. It has a rustic feel but is clean and well kept up. It is just a lodge though with a nice atmosphere. The person at the front desk (I think his name was John) was extremely friendly, helpful... More
