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! As note - we are working on compiling historical data as we speak. As one might imagine, hundreds of year of history to comb through, it's quite the task to edit... More

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. Bear Mountain is a tremendous escape from the city - and... More

Writing this as we sit by the fire place of the overlook lodge. This has been one of our most pleasant experiences ever. The people at the front desk are very professional and wonderful, Jennifer accommodated all our requests so gracefully and upgraded us to a room with a breathtaking view of the frozen lake!

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. My wife and I especially appreciated the hospitality offered by personable, helpful Front Desk host William who answered questions, faithfully attended to our needs and, most importantly, kept the lobby fire stoked...

First time staying there on recommendation of a friend. Loved the atmosphere. Continental breakfast was a bit skimpy and the frig did not work in our room, but staff was very friendly and helpful. The rooms on our side had big picture windows that looked onto Lake Hessian and it was a winter wonderland view.

The staff did not do what they said they would . The lodge had cob webs in the the hallways. The left hand doesn't know what the right hand is doing . Very disappointing for my daughters wedding. The food was not up to standards:(

My room was fairly standard. The bathroom was on the small size but nicely done. I particularly liked the down stair public space decorated with rustic furniture. There is a great porch overlooking the grounds toward the Hudson River. Staff was helpful.

We stayed here on our way from nyc to The Adirondack mountains. As a taster for the scenery that you can find further north, it is a remarkably convenient quick trip out of Manhattan....just an hour North. The Bear mountain inn was a bit scruffy, but served solidly reliable and sturdy food in an unpretentious setting. This was a twenty... More

We stayed at the Overlook Lodge last weekend as we were attending a wedding at the Bear Mountain Inn. We thought better of leaving the wedding and driving out onto dark, winding roads. The lodge is near the inn, small but friendly and welcoming. They have a few amenities at the front desk. Purchased an additional bottle of wine. Small... More
