We absolutely loved the Bear Mountain Lodge and wished we could have stayed longer than 2 nights. The O’Keefe room was spacious, clean and comfortable with lovely views across the wooded mountains. From the little balcony you could look down the sweeping drive or observe many birds on the feeders below. The relaxed feel of the place helped us to slow down after a couple of long driving days; it was very tranquil and we immediately felt at ease. The lounge was full of artwork to admire and there was an interesting small library and board games available.
The delicious breakfast was freshly prepared by a lovely young lady and served in the attractive breakfast room (which had hummingbird feeders close by - always a bonus!) There was plenty of food on offer including a different hot course every day.
The grounds of the lodge were beautiful and we would definitely recommend the walking trails. Instead of yet another morning in the car we decided to walk the Old Windmill Trail which included a short side trip to the Lookout Bench and the Bear’s Hump Labyrinth. Although finding the start of the loop beyond the lake, was a little tricky (some extra signage would have helped) we spent a thoroughly enjoyable couple of hours strolling along and found the trail easily navigable.
Even though it was a few miles drive back into town this did not bother us at all, in fact it was lovely to be out in the countryside at night so that we could observe the magnificent stars.
Finally, a special thank you to the super friendly receptionist who helped my husband register our Tracphone when the operator could not understand his English accent!
We would not hesitate to stay here again if we were ever in Silver City again.
