What could be better than a long weekend at Bear Mountain Lodge?

Room Tip: We especially liked the "Emory" room, but we looked at others, and they all looked great...

We have stayed here 3 years ago and loved the concept of "living with art" in the reception area, in the room, in the dining room and on the grounds --- even at the apex of a hike.

When we are in Silver City for longer stays, we often stay elsewhere in deference to our budget, but always look forward to the weekend brunch and several hikes along the beautiful trails of Bear Mountain Lodge. The vistas are splendid.

On the last day of our recent visit to Silver City, New Mexico, we saw a dilapidated pickup with a bumper sticker: My Karma Ran Over My Dogma. It seemed it should be the motto for this old mining town now a substantial artist colony and college town. And if you want to find your karma there's no better place than at the secluded, scenic and serene Bear Mountain Lodge on the edge of town. This lodge, formerly owned by the Nature Conservancy, is now locally owned and managed with at least one owner always present on-site. The rooms are spacious, comfortable, understated and loaded with local art, all of which is for sale. The included breakfasts are delicious, the grounds include acres of high desert scenery with great hiking trails, abundant wildlife and wonderful mountain air. We will return to enticing Silver City soon and will definitely stay at Bear Mountain Lodge.

Room Tip: We were in the separate building, Myra's Retreat, with four rooms named for birds. The rooms op...

My husband is extremely allergic to dog and cat hair, so when booking our room, I made sure to book a room in the main lodge where, according to the Lodge Policies on their website, dogs are not allowed. Imagine our surprise when we were greeted at the main lodge by a barking Standard Poodle coming out of the dining area. Poodles are known for being allergy friendly, so after advising the owner of the issue, we continued on to our room. The Emery Room was lovely, with a small balcony perfect for two. That afternoon we hiked some of the lodge trails and truly enjoyed the grounds and scenery. The main lodge building looks very comfortable, but we didn't want to take any risks with an allergy attack, so after a dinner in town, spent the remainder of the evening relaxing in our room. At breakfast the next morning, we were shocked to see a small Yorkie type of dog wandering in and out of the kitchen and around the tables as we were served breakfast. I'm thinking Public Health Code issues here... I like dogs, and raised Champion German Shepherds, but dogs have a place, and it is not in the kitchen or dining room of an inn, lodge, or restaurant, unless they are service animals. Thumbs up for the building, grounds, and breakfast; thumbs down on management.

What a great surprise. We only stayed here because our planned hotel closed and this lodge on the outskirts of Silver City is a real gem. Standing alone in huge unspolit grounds the rooms are large and comfortable (a bit dated maybe) and the breakfasts included in the room rate are truely home made.

This lodge was one of the most beautiful, relaxing and clean places I have ever stayed. The room was quiet, spotless and comfortable. The grounds were peaceful and the hosts were gracious and friendly. Being tucked away, where it is located, at night you can see more stars that I have ever seen in my life. I wish I could have spent more time on our road trip but would go back in a minute!

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.
