“The most beautiful setting”
Reviewed April 6, 2014

We found this beautiful spot at the last minute and fortunately they had 2 rooms available for us to stay. We were doing an Olympic peninsula trip with friends from the east coast and this was our first night. The rooms were very nicely appointed and clean. The common room was very comfortable to have cocktails in before dinner. We all enjoyed a delicious breakfast with one other couple staying there. The grounds are just beautiful and we enjoyed a walk around them after breakfast. We highly recommend Bears Lair B and B.

To echo other reviews - Jen & Giulio made their home my home. This is why I stay in B&B's - to feel connected and interact with the other guests and the owners that open their home to us. I came for one night and quickly decided I should check out early of my conference hotel and come back two nights later for another night stay. I felt cared for in the best way - a great location and grounds, a comfortable bed, engaging conversation and lovely breakfast. The almond sea salt and chocolate bars set out are amazing, the coffee is great and the furnishings are so comfortable and inviting. I can't wait to visit in the spring and summer, when I can enjoy the outdoor areas. I will be back!

This review is as much about the B&B's owners as it is about the place itself. Jen and Giulio Santori made my wife and I feel as though we were old friends. We got to hear the amazing story of how they build the place themselves from the ground up. And what a place it is! Beautiful and lovingly cared-for buildings and grounds. The first night we were there, a massive wind storm swept through the area, bringing down tons of leaves and fir needles. By the end of the day, the two of them had the grounds immaculate again. I highly recommend Bear's Lair if you are planning a stay in the Gig Harbor area.

We enjoyed a lovely weekend at Bear's Lair. Jen was friendly, the breakfast was delicious and the grounds and property were relaxing and beautifully maintained. A short drive away from the historical marina of Gig Harbor or down the Key Peninsula, Bear's Lair is conveniently located near shopping, water, state parks, a winery, a lavender farm, etc. We'd love to return!

I stayed here one night while I was in town for business. I didn't get to experience much beyond my room, as my flight got in late to Seattle. I had to leave early in the morning--before the usual breakfast time. Jen had no issues with me needing breakfast early. She was very gracious and the breakfast was wonderful. If I'm back in the area, I will definitely stay here! Such a nice change from my regular hotel stays.

Bear's Lair was perfect during a visit to family who did not have room for me. First visit to the Seattle area. My first floor room with private bath opened to a covered patio. Comfortable and nicely decorated/maintained. There were other guests and breakfast-timing was a little less flexible than I would have preferred, but there was coffee available early and breakfast was delicious. Jen is outgoing, and the B&B is well-run.
