We stayed in a room with a queen and a bunk bed with our too young sons. While the accommodation is modest, the rooms are immaculate and comfortable. The full English style breakfast was first class. The location is incredibly convenient being one minute from Mt. Snow.

I will always be honest when I write a review.... Let's start with the room... 1970 style with a 1970's bed and high class resort price...$200 a night!... Room was clean but very outdated... Please accordingly...

Caroline and Steve are great hosts at this quaint inn. We stayed in Room 19 with a king size bed, and private bathroom. My husband of course loved the new television. This is not the Hilton, but if you are looking for a great place to stay during ski season, summer or fall; this is a great option. The Murder... More

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...
