Have you ever noticed how many reviews go over the top—gushy in their praise of a place to the point of losing all credibility? The Bear’s Lair deserves more. I would call our stay here “Just Right.” For most B&Bs, the turnover is nightly. We booked 10 nights, while our daughter went through labor to deliver a beautiful baby boy.... More

We stayed for a week in July 2015 and can't wait to go back. The beautiful grounds were very inviting and so quiet. We stayed in the carriage house and it was like staying in our own condo, with a full kitchen and private deck. Jen and Giulio were very gracious hosts with knowledge of the area. Our breakfasts were... More

The Bear’s Lair is the epitome of perfection and peace, run by people who care. They designed, then built the beautiful house from the ground up while they lived in a trailer on the property. The woodwork is artfully created by Giulio – large beams, rich wood paneling and even some furniture. It is obvious that Giulio is a master... More

Incredibly cozy! The hosts Jen and Giulio were some of the nicest people we've met. They built this b&b from the ground up BY HAND. The passion they have for their guests and their life shows in everything they do. Best getaway ever. Will be back many times I'm sure! We were able to unplug and relax. We enjoyed every... More

A bit of an old fashioned place, but I like that. Decore is late 1980s/early 1990s, everything is in good repair, chachkies are kept to a minimum. The grounds and home and scrupulously maintained, and the breakfast is good and fresh; no creepy plastic container coffee makers here. Everything is of very good quality and it is very convenient to... More

Located a few minutes by car from "downtown" Gig Harbor, surrounded by stately evergreens, and a home to wonderful hosts, this B&B is indeed a breath of fresh air. Jen is the perfect hostess, friendly, helpful and willing to listen to our tales of travels. Giullio is a true crafstman. They both work together well having spent years building their... More

Just got back from a short vacation in Gig Harbor and was s very impressed with this B & B. First of all it is so beautiful - the owner is a woodworker so the place has so many beautiful details, the rooms were nicely furnished with all the amenities. They had our lots of snacks for the afternoon and... More

Bear's Lair is, simply put, a little slice of loveliness tucked away on the outskirts of Gig Harbor. We found Bear's Lair thanks to a LivingSocial deal, timed perfectly for an anniversary trip in December. Reserving the room was as easy as a phone call and showing up. The first time we stepped into the Carriage House, we were blown... More

A great little hideaway in the Pacific Northwest. Very friendly, lovely breakfast and such great conversation with a great owner. We would love to return in the spring and summer to see the flowers in bloom!
