I stayed here with my brother and my dog at the end of a hot hike on the Appalachian Trail. The lodge was absolutely perfect - a spacious room overlooking the lake in the distance and a little off the beaten path. There were only a few of us staying in the lodge at the time so it was very... More

Went to Bear Mountain via Groupon. Stayed June 15th through 17th. Bethany and Bobby were helpful at the front desk. Whatever you do, don't stay at the Lodge!! Here are the CONS of our trip: We were suppose to stay at the Lodge. It had NO elevators (my husband is disabled) and they do not tell you that when you... More

The room was adequate and clean with a coffee pot and refrigerator but no frills. The hallway smelled a bit musty but the view from the porch is gorgeous. Maintenance was quick to fix the Wi-Fi. A continental breakfast was included and located in the Main Lounge. It's a beautiful area with lots to do. The bonus is that it... More

Went here because I got a groupon, the hotel was very nice. The rooms were clean. The staff was friendly and helpful. The only downside was that bear mountain state park's pool was closed so there was no where to swim.

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.

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.
