We were looking for a first class bed & breakfast to enjoy a few days of relaxing. I came across the 3 Bears Bed & Breakfast website and was quite impressed with the way it was all presented. We easily booked on-line for several days in July, 2014 and hoped that the web photos would show a true picture of the B&B. They certainly did! We were very impressed with the greeting from Garrett and Melanie who offered us a glass of champagne after we settled in. It all started as a business relationship but by the time we left I can truly say it was now a friendship.
We booked the Baby Bear room which was exceptionally clean and the room was well appointed. We enjoyed a nice view from our windows to the rear yard. The private bath, just across the hall from our room, was spotless and featured a rain shower head in the glass enclosed shower. Soft bath robes were available in the bath closet.
The common area (the Chart Room) featured a billiard table, flat screen TV with DVD player, dart board, piano and the most interesting family photos on the walls. This room opens to a large covered deck featuring wrought iron table and chairs. Seat cushions are stored in a weatherproof box on the deck. The rear yard featured beautiful gardens, a fire pit with Adirondack chairs and just feet away from a swift moving, brown trout laden creek.
Breakfast was not your usual continental style servings of muffins, bagels or juice but an absolutely gourmet experience we haven’t enjoyed in a long time. During our stay Garrett prepared fresh, sliced fruit, muffins and homemade jams, blends of fruit juices and featured Eggs Florentine and Eggs Benedict among other entrées. It was a pleasurable gastronomic experience! Very impressive!
Do you get the idea? Best B&B we have ever stayed at. Book early!
