We stayed at Bear Mountain over New Years, and had a good overall experience. The lodge is very comfortable, clean, and with views as advertised. The rooms are subtly decorated and well kept, with comfortable beds and linens. The breakfasts were also excellent, albeit a bit on the sweet side for our tastes and along the lines of a country breakfast, as opposed to the fancier breakfasts one sometimes encounters (a good or bad thing, depending on your taste). We had only two minor complaints: sub-par coffee and a bit of excess noise. Our room abutted the main common area, and despite the log structure we could clearly hear both the activity in that room as well as in the neighboring room. It didn't actually bother us much, and but is something to be aware of. If you're a light sleeper, perhaps request a room at the end of the hallway. Still, overall it was an excellent stay, with good food and an inviting atmosphere, as well as two very helpful, accommodating, and friendly innkeepers. I would recommend it to anyone in the area and looking for something a bit above and beyond the standard B&B experience.
