5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2015

I usually stay in chain hotels so this kind of place was really refreshing and fun. You just can't beat this kind of character. Character doesn't mean lack of quality though...the beds were very clean and comfortable, the bathroom was in perfect condition, and my husband loved the cedar lined ceilings. I was surprised that they had Paul Mitchell brand... More

We have stayed here twice and have had a wonderful experience each time. We stayed in one of the spacious cabins by the creek, had dinner in the upper deck restaurant and really enjoyed the hand cut rib eye steak. You will find the staff are extremely friendly and effective at their job. Tim will probably check you in and... More

We Stayed at the Bear Inn for 2 nights and had a very pleasant stay. Were greeted by Owner/Manager at check in and he was very welcoming and helpful. We stayed in Cabin 10K which was cozy and clean. The King bed was comfortable and our daughter slept well in one of the twin beds. My only suggestion would be... More

Husband and I stayed a night in the "Bogee" room, it is very well maintained,very clean, with a kitchenete, dishes, table and chairs, and a full size bathroom. Designed in a rustic setting, complete with cedar furniture, it is a place I would visit again. The restaurant upstairs served the best open grill steak, I believe I have ever tasted.... More

We have used it several times at Thanksgiving for family reunions with family coming from Louisiana, Indiana & Texas. We have stayed in several of their cabins & rooms with all being very clean...

I booked a room at the Bear Inn for a school reunion, and Wow was I impressed! So was my 14 year old son. The room was bigger than what I thought it would be, clean and the beds were comfortable. And it was in a perfect location for all the places I needed to be. The bar & grill... More

Have stayed in several of the rooms here at the Bear Inn and had no complaints about any of the amenities. What makes the property truly outstanding is the caring, friendly staff. I stayed here several times while searching for a new home and now live in the area. We continue to patronize the restaurant upstairs and can only say... More

Beds were comfortable, clean room, nice restaurant/bar upstairs, and staff made me feel at home. The staff left the heat on for me on arrival which was nice. The closest town is Savannah if you want to go shopping or see a movie. Savannah is about a 25 minute drive. Thanks for all your hospitality. -Jennifer Morton

We recently spent a couple of nights at the Bear Inn, and overall, enjoyed our stay. About the only problem we had is that there is no heat in the bathroom so it was cold getting out of the shower. Other than that, we were pleased. The beds were comfortable and we were in a cabin, so it was very... More
