We requested a room (212) overlooking the lake. The trees obstruct the view. Might be okay when there are no leaves on the trees. However, the view is great from the common area and the back porch. Housekeeping issues: the carpet in the room could have been cleaner. The windows and carpets in the hallway were dirty.

Great lodge at Bear Mtn. 7 miles south of USMAC at West Point. A must see! Drive up Perkins Memorial Drive and see the Hudson River Valley, bridge, and NY skyline in the distance . They have a nice lake , small trailside zoo & museum. Nice lounge & restaurant plus gift shop also on premises. Wonderful place to stop,... More

The room here was okay but the mattress was pretty lumpy. The maintenance on the room needed some help and it wasn't the cleanest I've ever stayed in. The balcony outside of the common area is nice and has a good view. Parking is easy and it's not far from the restaurant and bar.

We spent one night in the Bear Mountain Lodge.....it is just "okay". The carpets are old and dirty and the windows haven't been cleaned (on the outside) in years! Our room was large, with a King-sized bed, but only one night stand so you couldn't rest a glass of water or book anywhere on that side of the bed. Perhaps... More

Nice little place nestled in the woods. It IS a little hard to locate, and you check In at another building Ask for water view Rooms are basic, but clean and comfortable. Restaurant and front desk are a couple of miles away, which is odd, but staff are friendly. Best place on the mountain!

Thanks for taking the time to post a review of Overlook Lodge. Due to the nature (no pun intended!) of our State Park location, I guess it does feel odd that we have several different types of buildings, but all are located around Hessian Lake which is 1.5 miles in circumference. Many guests choose Overlook Lodge because they love the... More

I had read previous reviews and was leery about booking here because a few were really bad. I am so glad I took my chances because it was perfect! I have come to this conclusion: some people are impossible to please and create negative. This place was perfect, I can't imagine not adoring it. It is so charming, everything you'd... More

Booked the weekend with friends. What a lovely place, rustic charm. Panoramic views of Bear Mountain. Room was cozy and comfortable. Enjoyed the common area where we sat by the fireplace nightly. Great restaurant at the inn which is about a mile away. Breakfast daily at the inn, which was included with our stay. There is an ice skating rink... More

I should have believed the prior negative reviews! I had heard and read that the Inn and Lodge were nice places to stay at Bear Mtn, but the actual experience was not good. First, arriving at night in the dark, the entrance to the Lodge is extremely hard to see -- there is a relatively small sign off the road... More

Thank you for submitting this review, even though it is difficult to respond when all of our shortcomings are so thoroughly exposed. I concede that this property is quite dark; it is a State Park in the woods and light is hard to come by on an otherwise dark night in a place with which you are not familiar. Let... More

We stayed in a room in one of the cottages to start our 30th anniversary trip in October. We entered the address from our confirmation into our GPS and was directed to the middle of the state park. No hotel in site. The confirmation does not tell you to go to main lodge to check in. We lost over an... More

Dear reviewer, I apologize for all of the factors that combined to make your trip a bad experience.

I can't wait to go back!! What a pleasant surprise. We stayed at the Inn and couldn't be more pleased with our room, our surroundings, our food and so much to see and do. The staff were very helpful and friendly. The hotel is very charming. We travel quite a bit and am so pleased to have encountered this gem.
