At breakfast we were informed of some site seeing and places to go visit which was helpful especially if you are not from the area. The...

My 5th time at Bear Mountain Inn in 6 months because my son attends nearby Bridgton Academy and it's just too far a ride for a one-day round trip. We discovered Bear Mountain Inn when we dropped off our son in August and were so taken with this place that we've had no inclination to try anywhere else and we...

Exceptional. Exceeded exexpectations. Host and staff were remarkable. The cozy cottage was everything my husband and I hoped for and more. We are already planning our next trip there. So much to far and quiet. We even tried new things.

This inn is absolutely beautiful. It has an amazing log cabin feel in the lobby and dining room, and the rooms are all decorated with a woodsy flair. We stayed in the Polo Bear room. The room and bathroom were very clean and warm, with a wood stove heating the room to the perfect temperature for a January evening. There...

My Husband and I recently stayed for two nights. The Inn is just lovely. Decorated beautifully and exceptionally clean. It's cozy and very comfortable. The hostess is friendly and accommodating without being intrusive whatsoever. Breakfast was well prepared and down to earth. An unexpected find. Will visit again.
