Went to a mystery weekend with a friend and stayed at Big Bears Lodge, a wonderful weekend had by all. The lodge was very clean, with comfortable beds. The staff was wonderful. Full breakfast in AM, coffee was great. The mountains of Vermont of were beautiful this time of year.

Took a ride up north to "leaf peep" this past weekend and stayed at Big Bear for a second time. Steve and Caroline make the stay comfortable, relaxing, and enjoyable each and every time. Breakfast was top notch and the little ones were in Heaven with the chocolate chip pancakes. The hotel feels more like a home and for this... More

A nice, clean, comfortable place to stay. The owners were very nice and accommodating. Breakfasts were very sufficient with a home-cooked style. The one big complaint, however, is that the musty odor throughout the place should be attended to.

This is the second time we have stayed at Big Bears Lodge with Steve and Caroline and have really enjoyed both times. We come up from CT to have some quiet time away and peace. The rooms are nice and clean, the grounds are well kept and my son loves the giant playscape in back. Breakfast in the morning is... More

From start to finish, the innkeepers of this pretty lodge took great care of us. Our scattered family were gathering for a funeral, and Steve and Caroline helped with so many details. The rates were very good for the handy location and also for the lunch buffet they hosted following the graveside service, for 30 people. Several of our family... More

August Dulcimer Daze provided lodging for meat Big Bears Lodge. Even though it was not quite the season to be in Dover, VT (just before the "color" season) It was a lovely setting. The rooms were nice, and the breakfast outstanding. Access to the quaint and lovely area was very easy.

Lets start with the abrasive customer service, the owners of this establishment are disrespectful & prejudice. right from the start the owner made accusations about the two gentlemen who were checking in, due to the only fact that they were gentlemen in their 20's. @ 9am the owner began banging on our bedroom door accusing us of smoking marijuana, not...

Nice little warm (friendly) cozy lodge by Mt. Snow. There are many reasons to recommend it: It was perfect for what we were looking for. We were a ski club group of about 30. Hot tub (a requirement for a ski lodging place in my opinion-important for those sore skiing muscles. I think it could seat 8 at a time.... More

We stay at Big Bears Lodge every year to ski at Mt. Snow. The lodge is a wonderful place to stay (and this year was no exception). The owners are so welcoming and try to meet all your expectations. The rooms are not fancy, but they are clean and comfortable. The lodge offers a great breakfast and "afternoon soup and... More

This place was incredible, and the owners, Steve and Caroline, were extremely generous and they interacted with their guests.They went out of their way to entertain us and give us exactly what we need. Every time we visit Mount Snow, we will always stay here, and I wouldn't want to stay anywhere else. The breakfast is amazing too; they made... More
