4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We stayed here while riding the Vermont Challenge a 4 day point to point bike ride. The room was clean and the staff was friendly and helpful. We stayed in the far right "wing" beyond the hot tub. There are no elevators but the short flight of stairs was not an issue for us.

The room and bathroom were fine, and it was quiet (3rd floor). The bed was comfortable, and the kids enjoyed the hot tub. There was a continental breakfast included. Some dust. A broken lock on the window. View of a parking lot. No elevator. If the price is right, and you plan to spend your time skiing (or enjoying the... More

I believe that I may have been the first person to stay in this newly remodeled room. Room itself was very nice. Bed was very comfortable. The bathroom fan was really quite loud and there was a light coating of dust in the bathtub as well as the door handle. Wish the pool had been closer to the lodge.

We stayed here a few times when it was the Inn at Stratton and had the opportunity to stay here again now that it is Black Bear Lodge. The lodge is clean and the staff is friendly. The breakfast is better than in the past but food options are limited. The hotel is a short stroll or shuttle from the... More

We stayed at this lodge for one night on May 31 for a Tough Mudder the following morning. Upon arrival, we found the place incredibly clean and fresh. The bathroom was spotless and nice toiletries were included. The room itself was a basic, what you would expect room. We did find the beds incredibly hard though. All the linens were... More

We checked into the black bear lodge Friday night. When we got in our room I realized there were 2 beds when we requested 1. Although it may not seem like a big deal it is when the room is barely big enough for one bed. When you add that second bed in there you can barely move. The bottom... More

The rooms were OK & clean. We were looking for a quiet night and requested the top floor (per good tips from other TripAdvisor reviews), facing away from the parking lot & away from the stairs. The breakfast was terrible, whether you had the included breakfast or purchased off of the menu. If you really need breakfast, do not count... More

We stayed here thru a travelzoo voucher and ended up adding an extra night. They had our lift tickets and rental info all ready upon check in. The hotel is in a perfect spot as you can walk to the village in a few minutes. The best part is they have a continuous shuttle to the village, i dont think... More
