Amber Bear Inn is a perfect place for a quiet get away. Every room is unique and beautiful including fireplaces and picturesque views that you won't soon forget. There's almost always some sort of wildlife around be it deer, elk, moose or bears. Lot's of great opportunities for photographers. But mostly what I enjoy are the wonderful meals Nancy prepares for the restaurant. My husband and I have the good fortune of living in Heron so we visit Amber Bear fairly often. We think of them as "our diamond in the rough". Not many restaurants within 15 minutes of our home. None, of this quality. If we have company we want to take out for dinner, it's the Amber Bear Inn. If we have friends or family who need a place to stay, it's the Amber Bear. We have celebrated birthdays, anniversaries, and reunions, at the Amber Bear. Nancy prepares every meal with skill and heart. I can honestly say, that every time I have eaten there, the food has been fresh and of good quality. I believe that is what sets them apart from other restaurants, in this struggling economy. You can not beat their prices, which usually include drink, salad and soup bar, Nancy's delicious cheddar biscuits, and desert. One of my favorites is the Honey Stung Chicken, and my husband says the quail "melts in your mouth". And sometimes, when it's been a very long day and I have no ideas for dinner, I can count on Nancy to have dinner ready to go. Mike will make you feel at home and there are real table cloths, nice dishes and glasses, it's the most inviting and warmest restaurant you'll find in these parts.
