My husband and I just spent a few days at the Bear Mountain Lodge to celebrate our 30th Anniversary and enjoyed our stay tremendously! The Lodge is BEAUTIFUL, VERY CLEAN and gives you the feeling of being at HOME. We stayed in the Canyon Room and got a lot of use out of the hot tub which was already running and hot before we even got in our room. The small touches the caretakers do to make your stay enjoyable is very special. We had a sign sitting above the fireplace wishing us a Happy 30th Anniversary along with a pink rose and battery operated candle burning to welcome us. Very nice surprise! Enjoyed the quiet, peacefulness of the wooded area surrounding the lodge. Definitely will recommend this place to any of our friends who are looking for a romantic getaway. Well worth the money!! Thank you to the Bear Mountain owner and staff for a wonderful place to celebrate our anniversary. Can't wait to return someday soon!!!!

My boyfriend and I just visited your lodge this weekend and our getaway was incredible. We both come from opposite ends of the state and Wellsboro is like our halfway mark and has so much to offer. We spent the weekend seeing the canyon and browsing shops along main street. We enjoyed staying at your lodge, it is absolutely stunning. We enjoyed our room and our hot tub was such a nice touch, we definitely got our use out of that ! We can't wait to come back and stay again !

We enjoyed our stay here the lodge is well equiped and nicely furnished. We came to Wellsboro to do some hiking and this lodge was located near the Grand Canyon of PA's Pine Creek Trail. We would stay here again if we are ever back in this area.

We once again stayed with The Bear Lodges of Wellsboro, we keep coming back because it is an outstanding lodge located just minutes from the PA Grand Canyon. This time we chose Bear Meadows and loved it just as much as Bear Mountain. You …Read more on TripAdvisor

Stayed in the wilds room and it was beyond expectations. Such a beautiful, quiet area with a large deck and clean hot tub to enjoy it. The room was so inviting, very cozy, clean and have all you need, including snacks! Would recommend to anyone.

The small details like the welcome basket, stocked fridge, personal welcome sign, (and so much more ) really made this place so great. We were so impressed by how clean this place was. It seriously looks like someone scrubbed every little crack and crevice of this place with a tooth brush. We can’t wait to come back!

5 star rating We have just completed our 4th stay at the Bear Mountain Lodge. We keep coming back again and again to this place. There is just so much about this place that we like. We are partial to the smallest room called the Bear Room. We like it because of the privacy of the Hot Tub on the balcony. We love watching the stars at night which one can see all too easily. The Bear Mountain Lodge always feels like home to us. In fact we've decorated our home much like this lodge.
Sherri the housekeeper is an exceptional person. Very warm and inviting and treats us like old time friends. During this stay we ventured out to the other property called the Bear Meadows Lodge where we were fortunate to meet Jim Meade, the owner. Jim was kind enough to give us a tour of all the rooms at Bear Meadows. We found all four of the accommodations to be large at well laid out. The views from the deck of each room looking out onto the countryside were spectacular. We were humbled when Jim asked us to sit with him on the porch and he showed us his soon to be released book on his creating the Bear Mountain and Bear Meadows Lodges. We'll certainly be looking forward to purchasing his new book as soon as it is released.
It's not just the Bear Mountain Lodge that appeals so much to us. Its is the town of Wellsboro as well. We love walking the main street and shopping in the inviting shops in town. We are also big fans of the The Steak House on Main Street. But more about this in my next review.
Wellsboro, Pa is only a two hour and twenty minute drive from our home in Rochester. We can escape to Wellsboro in very quick time but feel like we are hundreds of miles away. The country side is beautiful and the people are great. I'm all ready to go back for my fifth visit.
Thank you Jim, Sherri and Amanda for all that you do to make this our very special get away place.

This was our second time visiting the Wellsboro (Grand Canyon of PA) area & this lodge, and you could not find a nicer place so convenient to all the area attractions. When you arrive, the room is so welcoming with candles lit, soft music playing, and goodies in a basket. The beds are comfy, the heated bathroom floor very nice, and the room is very clean. The view from the private deck and hot tub is beautiful. The hosts are too sweet. We hope to visit regularly and we are bringing our bicycles next time. Enjoy! D & J

5 star rating We stayed in the Canyon room which was small, but right off the large, beautiful living room which felt like an extension of our room. The bathroom was large. The gas fireplace in our room and private hot tub on the deck made it feel extra special. We brought our own snacks and games, but didn't need to, because our room and the kitchen were well stocked with k-cups, juice, fruit, granola bars, oatmeal and pretzels to provide for our breakfast and evening munchies. Even though it was a cool spring weekend with some rain, we spent the day hiking, and then enjoyed the evening relaxing at the lodge. With all the attention to detail, we would definitely recommend a stay at Bear Mountain Lodge to anyone who wants a relaxing get-away.

We stayed in the Wilderness Suite which was roomy, clean, and perfect for a couple’s getaway. We loved the quiet location, the stocked fridge, and friendliness of the hosts. Having access to the kitchen in the common area was helpful as we were hiking quite a bit in the gorge and appreciated the granola and beverages. We have decided we will be making a weekend stay at the Bear Mountain Lodge a tradition. Highly recommend!
