My husband and I came down to visit my family and normally I stay at my moms house in town, but since she passed and being first time back to Clifton it was really hard, so we decided to stay at the Bear Inn. I have seen in many times in passing but never stayed. We loved it, very clean,... More

We love this place. It is completely different from the other places we have stayed. The kitchenette is stocked with real plates and silverware. It is secluded but close to several good restaurants. It is easily one of our all time favorites.

I stayed in a queen bed room #14 on the main building. Clean, comfortable, with kitchenette (microwave but no stove, with small fridge, and utensils) flat screen TV, full-pot coffee maker. This is more of a lodge type property than chain hotel. Within a few minutes of turning on the A/C, the whole room was frosty cool (95 degrees outside)!... More

We stayed here while attending a graduation. Our family had 4 rooms. We all thoroughly enjoyed the small town atmosphere, the theming in each room, & the friendly owners! Plus, the restaurant upstairs served us the best food (& drinks), & as an added bonus there was live music the night we were there (& the band was great, too!!).... More

This was our first stay at Bear Inn but it will not be our last. It was quiet and very clean. The location is slightly off the beaten path but well worth the effort. The rooms have a cabin feel with outdoor themes. We ate a very good meal in their restaurant. They do not serve breakfast but the rooms... More

We stayed 2 nights in Cabin 3 to enable a visit to Shiloh and to see the surrounding towns. At arrival the Proprietor was friendly, welcoming and helpful. He did advise WIFI not good in the cabins and offered a room in the Motel style accommodations if we were particular about WIFI or definitely needed it. We appreciated his advice... More

Eclectic but fun and chill. The food in the restaurant smelled great and overall is a very good value. The burger was tasty, was not able to taste other fair, but considering location and price, good value! Good bottled beer selection. Not great but definitely very good compared to most.

We came through here at a time when the lodge is barely open but they welcomed us for the night. We stayed in cabin #3 which was very nice and comfortable. It has a small kitchenette area, micro and fridge only. A front porch with tables and chairs and a small back porch that overlooked a stream, great place to... More

We stayed for 4 days while taking depositions at SCCF. I haven't slept that well in 10 years. The service was amazing, rooms were clean and comfortable, and everybody we met was over the top nice. The bar upstairs is a super cozy nice touch. We will definitely stay again. Seriously quiet......super restful.

My husband stayed here in early January 2016. He loved his room, said it was our kind of place and said he will have to stay there again and bring me and get a cabin. Only down side is bad cell signal.
