I took my mother here for Mother's Day... as she is getting older and I want to spend as much time with her as I can. I only have a few complaints. The biggest one is that this place is hidden right off of route 6. If you are coming from the east you have a better chance of finding a golf ball in a snowstorm than you do this place. We drove all over Wellsboro for an hour and when we finally tried to call Amanda or Sheri there was no answer. So... we just drove around some more. To their credit... someone eventually called us back and gave us great directions. Another complaint is that the parking is terrible. There is no room for more then 5 cars and that is puhing it. My mom nicked my car door trying to get out because we had to park a foot from a log barrier. Another minor complaint is the tv channel lineup had NO guide whatsover so I had to spend the night trying to figure out what I was watching. I'm sure this is no big deal for most people but I wasn't there for a romantic night out with a lover. I LOVED the coffee pot so much that I must have drank at least five cups of coffee. When I turned on the water for the hot tub it filled with dirt and grime... But I got in it and enjoyed it anyways:) My mom enjoyed the little gift shop upstairs so much that she bought a tank top that says Bear Mountain Lodge. However... she only went up there once because this place is not designed for the elderly. All in all... it is a very nice place and I know I would have enjoyed it much more if I hadn't had to waste nearly two hours trying to find it. We WILL be back and plan to stay in The Wilds room which I hope and pray is at the lodge and NOT the meadows because apparently we both suck at finding places.
