After hours of searching for just the right place to spend a weekend away in Maine, I found Bear Mountain Inn. The location is awesome - perched up a small hill overlooking a pristine "pond" and offering fantastic views. We stayed in the Great Grizzly suite, which was very private and decked out with everything you could want for a romantic and relaxing getaway (pictures and descriptions on the site are dead on). Jim and his staff were helpful and accommodating, with great suggestions about restaurants, hikes and more in the area. Overall, the level of service and amenities was far beyond the typical Maine inn or B&B, and I hope we get to come back again soon!
