My wife and I just finished a three night stay at the Bear Mountain Lodge. Everything about our stay was excellent. We stayed in the "Bear Room" and enjoyed the outdoor hot tub at the start and end of every day we were there. The breakfast was plentiful and there was enough for us to take on our daily outings.||Sherri and Amanda were outstanding hosts and provided us with great ideas and recommendations. Everything throughout the lodge was spotless and very well decorated. ||Wellsboro and Bear Mountain Lodge were a great base for visiting Corning/Watkins Glen as well as hiking and biking on the Pine Valley Rail Trail.||We look forward to visitng Bear Mountain Lodge again!

Perfect and cozy Bear Room at Bear Mountain Lodge! Excellent place to stay!

Hotels.com r. 10/14/2019

Excellent accommodations! The lodge exceeded my expectations. My room was both clean and super comfortable. Every little detail of what you might need or want in the room seemed to be covered. Outside, I utilized the spacious bike shed which is on the property to store my bicycle when I went into town for dinner. Clear choice of where Im going to stay next time when visiting the area, without question.

My husband and I spent just one night in The Bear Room at Bear Mountain Lodge. I love log homes and I am crazy about all things bears! So I was really in my element. haha. Overall, it was amazing!!||||The awesome:||Personal touches like the bear jute bag to welcome us and the personalized chalk board in our room. The variety of snacks, drinks, and coffees available both in our room and in the common kitchen (the muffins were amazing!). On top of this, you are given $10 in Wellsboro dollars to use at a local restaurant. The privacy—there was only one other room rented out while we were there and it was 2 floors down, so our stay was wonderfully private. The hot tub!! That hot tub was easily the best part and made the entire stay. We stayed in the Bear Room, and with the curtains pulled on the deck it was relatively private out there. We really appreciated the robes, and there were so many very nice towels. Stargazing from the hot tub at night was simply dreamy! The wifi worked great, which was good because we had no service on our cell phones (we were having device-free quality time anyway, but did need to look some things up when we got ready to head out and about). Everything was so cozy and homey, we just loved it.||||Small things to note:||The Bear Room is REALLY small, and could use a little more lighting for when it's necessary--I almost always prefer the romantic low lighting, but needed a little more to figure out the coffee maker. We had trouble getting the water warm for showers in the morning, which I am positive had to be some kind of one-off issue because everything at this Lodge is so well maintained. We left a note about it instead of calling someone in, because we discovered it less than an hour before checking out. I had really looked forward to some time by the fireplace, but unfortunately it was 86 degrees on the day we decided to go so we ended up having to run the air conditioner instead and couldn't get the fireplace to kick on, I assume due to the warm temps (I just wanted to see it on for a few minutes haha). I couldn't sleep very well with the A/C blowing directly down onto the head of the bed, and then it got way too warm when I tried to turn the temp up. ||||I’d love to come back in the winter when we can run the fireplace instead of the A/C, and maybe even catch a snowstorm through the big front windows of the Lodge!

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 just cannot go wrong staying in these lodges. Beautiful, clean (beyond clean...spotless) rooms in a beautiful setting, and you are really taken care of. |There is no formal breakfast but they stock your room with pastries, fruit and an assortment of coffees and juice for the morning. They stock your room's mini fridge with items you can throw in a backpack to take with you as you hike, bike, or explore. Fruit, yogurt, cheese, granola bars, and assorted teas, Gatorade and water. |A cute burlap carry all is also included that is filled with maps of the area and "chamber dollars" that you can use at area restaurants. |Five Plus Stars. Word of caution though, after staying at Jim's lodges and being cared for by Amanda and Sherri, any other B/B you might stay at during your travels will disappoint you, because you will be comparing them to Bear Mountain and Bear Meadows.|

Very nice stay in the Wilderness Suite. Was visiting my mother in PA. The lodge is very Pennsylvania Rustic, yet upscale, clean and decorated well. The only negative I had in my room was the AC unit did not keep the entire area cool. Small unit on the wall in this suite. Even with this, I will stay here next time I am in Wellsboro!

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.

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.
