Holiday Rental House /
3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 8
This cozy, private retreat is a nature-lovers paradise! This three bedroom home is the main level of our bed and breakfast--Bear Inn the Woods--that we rent out to folks who need more space than a room or two and would like the entire area for their own private use. Nestled among the trees, just minutes from the Kayuta Lake boat launch, this roomy rental gives you space to spread out. The three bedrooms will sleep up to six and the sofa bed provides sleeping space for another two. The gathering room offers a wood fireplace, when needed, entertainment center, large HD TV, books, magazines, and games to share. The large, fully-equipped kitchen allows you to fix your own meals, or, if you'd like to eat out, there are many nearby restaurants, cafes, diners, and fast food spots. Surrounded by windows, you have a sense of being outside... Read more

After countless answering machines at the larger, commercial hotels, we decided to try a bed and breakfast. My first call was actually a living person...and yes there was a choice of accommodations, and YES, we could bring... more

The set-up at this B&B is not ideal. The good part is that the owner is very accommodating - she allowed us to switch our dates several times due to weather and other issues. We also had run of the house, including kitchen use. However, our room was right next to the owners' room and we could hear them all... more

I stayed at Bear Inn the Woods in January with my daughter. I am from the area but live in Florida and wanted my 4 yr old to experience the snow and scenery. Lynne made wonderful breakfasts and was very welcoming and kid friendly. more
