“Beautiful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 October 2013

Just spent a few days at Bear Mountain, and it was absolutely beautiful! Our room was great and ,Michael, the owner was a lot of fun. Also really enjoyed chatting with the other guests, Great place for honeymooners. Breakfast was delicious. The last week in September was peak for fall foliage, so the surroundings were absolutely amazing!

Stayed September 2013, travelled as a couple

My husband has always dreamed of building a log cabin in the woods and simplifying our life. Frankly, nothing about that dream interested me until we came to the Bear Mountain Lodge for a quick overnight mid week this week. Now I sit at my computer at home and all I can think about is the bracing fall air, the gorgeous colors of the foliage, the beauty of the mountains, the cozy comfort of the lodge and how welcoming and friendly Michael and Carol were. It helps, I guess, that they always dreamed of building a log cabin home and living there. Their enthusiasm is contagious! I think we have discovered the best of both worlds...we can come up for a visit any time we want, hike and kayak and shop to our heart's content...and then live most of the year close to work and family. This does not feel like a hotel (which I hate) because Carol and Michael are so warm and welcoming. Rooms are all great, beds super comfortable and everything is clean, clean, clean. All is better than in the website photos. We have already scheduled another three days with family in January. I can't wait!

Room Tip: From what I can see all rooms are good. We stayed in Wild Turkey which is a ground floor room, very...

The best place I've stayed at for a nice, long weekend. The owners are nice, the breakfast is great, the view of the mountains is perfect. Loved the theme of the rooms, and the fire pit out back. Great stay, can't wait for a chance to go back!

This was our first trip to Bear Mountain Lodge, but won't be our last. We booked based on the pictures and info on the website and, to tell the truth, the pictures don't do it justice. We were welcomed at the door by Michael and made to feel welcome from the very first moment. The lodge is spectacular, the views outstanding, and the care and service first rate. We will definitely be back!

Room Tip: Bring a night light or two - the rooms are large and the only night light is in the bathroom.

When an inn has hundreds of 5 start reviews how can you add anything new without sounding redundant? I will say that every one of those top reviews are right on the mark. We have been to 38 different inns and this has to be one of the top ones. The place was immaculate, fantastic views and, being a real log cabin, it had it's own unique charm. But that's only the half of it. The innkeepers, Mike and Carol, are among the best. Carol's cooking was great. And for Mike, he won't need an introduction. Within seconds of meeting him, you will think you ran into a long lost friend. We very much enjoyed our stay and would definitely recommend this inn. Give it a try. You won't be sorry.

Green Features: They recycle and are partnership with Clean World to help reduce waste.

My husband and I recently stayed a week at the lodge to celebrate our 25th anniversary and have a vow renewal ceremony. We had never stayed at a Bed & Breakfast before, so we weren’t quite sure what to expect. The lodge exceeded our expectations! We stayed in the Wild Turkey room and it was like having our own mini suite. Everything was extremely clean and the food was wonderful. My favorite breakfast was the orange infused French toast. Mike and Carol are wonderful hosts. They were always available to answer any questions we had, from activities in the area to restaurant recommendations. They made our vacation and renewal ceremony very special. This is one of the best vacations we’ve had and we can’t wait to return!

My husband and I celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary by spending 4 nights in the Eagle's Nest room. Being someone who is very cautious about B & B's, (I can be a little on the anti-social side, don't like sharing bathrooms, etc), this lodge not only met, but exceeded our expectations. The size of the lodge and the rustic decor are perfect. The grounds and views are beautiful. Everything was spotlessly CLEAN, warm, cozy and RELAXING. Of particular appeal to me was the breakfast set up; you're not sitting at a large dining room table in Grandma's old dining room. There are individual tables as you would find in a restaurant, logistically placed distance between tables allow you to keep to yourselves during breakfast, OR soclialize with other guests without having to move. I was enjoying myself so much, I actually spoke to other guests and socialized, but in no way felt pressured to do so. Carol is a fantastic cook and the breakfasts were out of this world. Carol putting out homemade cookies or fudge for mid afternoon snack was such a homey, considerate touch, I felt like a little kid again wanting to rush back to the lodge after being out all day just to see what had just come out of the oven. Mike is his own floor show, really and truly. He makes you comfortable, he makes you laugh, he's not intrusive, but somehow always there when you need something. All you have to do is mention a restaurant and he's already on the phone making reservations for you. We did not want to leave and we can't wait to go back. Checking out the calendar as we speak for the next excuse to get away....Valentine's day, birthday, so many reasons!! Really and truly, do not miss this place. You won't be disapponted.

Room Tip: Eagle's Nest and Wild Turkey have beautiful views of the mountains, in room 2 people jacuzzi'...

CarolKNH, Owner at Bear Mountain Lodge, responded to this review, 12 October 2013
We so enjoyed having you stay with us and celebrate your special anniversary. Some guests check-in and have no interaction with us and we respect that everyone is different. So long as their needs are met, we're happy that they've enjoyed their stay. You both were a joy to get to know and glad that Bear Mountain Lodge met your expectations and you felt comfortable enough to come out of your shell and socialize.

When designing the Lodge we setup the dining room so that guests can have their own private space and decide if they want to engage with other guests or not. We don't have one giant table forcing you to be social in case you're just not in the mood - when we get away we like to have our private time at breakfast together as we plan our day so we made sure our guests have the same ability.

Breakfasts and afternoon treats are our specialty and the maple fudge was a big hit this season. A recent guest review dinged us as a 3 because two of their three breakfasts were sweet dishes. In order to try to meet everyone's likes, I alternate a sweet dish one day and a savory dish the other. The starter course is sometimes sweet, sometimes fruit, sometimes a yogurt parfait with Carol's homemade blueberry sauce. It all depends what is available at our one supermarket here in the North Country -- sometimes the fresh fruit just isn't good enough to serve guests. So we're happy that we obviously met your likes over your four day visit with a good mixture of sweet and savory.

We look forward to having you stay with us again - perhaps Valentine's Day will be a good time to visit again. Take care.

Carol
