This place was one of the best B&Bs I've ever stayed at. Serene, clean, and stunningly picturesque. The charm of the place was matched only by Christi's outgoing warmth & hospitality. Plus, so many amenities & fun things to do are included - kayaking, fishing, canoeing, jacuzzi, paddle boarding, smores by campfire, etc. This place is good for the weary... More

The inn is on Bear Pond and she supplies paddle boards, kayaks, canoes, and a paddle boat for her guests' use. (She also has beach towels and... More

I don't frequently stay at inns but this was super convenient. The staff (especially the owner) were so friendly and efficient and could not have been more accommodating. The room was cozy, quiet, delightfully furnished. (Not used to such a small bed.) Breakfast was great and MORE than I expected. On property beach, boats, fireplace, etc. MUCH MORE than I... More

A charming bed and breakfast, tucked away in the mountains on the lake. Christy and her staff took care of every detail and made my wedding exactly as I always imagined!!!! The accommodations were top notch and we felt more like family than mere guests almost immediately! If you are looking for a place away from the hustle and bustle... More

Our 2nd time here! Stayed 5 nights during 4th July. Christi was born to be an Innkeeper, always available yet never intrusive, gregarious, fun, knowledgeable about the area and where to go, and efficiently keeping everything tip-top, the place is so well run and maintained. Her staff was a joy, busy, busy, busy, yet always smiling and never too busy... More

Christi and the girls were so accommodating from the time we arrived to the time we left. The Polo Bear room had beautiful décor and a nice powerful corner shower. The lake down the hill on the property was great for fishing and kayaking. There was a hot tub and outdoor as well as several indoor fireplaces. There is also... More

My 5th time at Bear Mountain Inn in 6 months because my son attends nearby Bridgton Academy and it's just too far a ride for a one-day round trip.
