We visited Bear Mountain for our 20th wedding anniversary this Spring. We found everything about the lodge to be lovely and welcoming - from our welcome bag full of helpful information about the lodge and the area, to our cozy but luxurious room, to the serene mountain view from the hot tub - to be exactly what we needed!

We took a quiet weekend away from the kids for my husband's 40th birthday, and loved our stay. It was so cozy, clean, and just a great place to relax for a couple of days. There are so many nice touches- from the many flameless candlelights, to the cozy fireplace, and the welcome sign and roses on our arrival. The...

Indescribable!!! Perfect resort! Awesome location with clean, neat amenities. Wonderful wood work, and flooring throughout the facility. Very helpful, kind staff (Sherri), and great Bear Gift area for the cubs at home. Cannot wait to come back for another stay at this beautiful comfortable and cozy bear hideout!

We stayed at the Bear Meadows property. It's a fairly new construction, very clean, and everything worked. The log cabin facade interior is very well done. We visited in winter time and truly enjoyed the peacefulness and romantic feel Bear Meadows afforded us. Or goal was to get away, and spend time as husband and wife. We didn't have the...

Dear Roman B, It is wonderful that we met your getaway expectations. Being a nontraditional b&b, people often don't have the typical b&b interaction with other guests. Please feel welcome to come back on another winter day or visit us in the summer or fall, to see another view of the mountains and the town of Wellsboro! Best, Jim and...

My husband and I had a very enjoyable 3 nights before Christmas in the cozy Bear Meadows Lodge. We had chocolate dipped strawberries and the granola bars came in handy on our hike in Hills Creek State Park. We found really good food and nice shops in Wellsboro.

Excellent little get away spot for a special someone. We stayed two nights here and did not want to leave. There is no hot breakfast but you get a nice little muffin basket.

If you have had the opportunity to stay at the properties under the aegis of Bear Mountain in Wellsboro, then you might be apt to compare the Bear Mountain Lodge to the Bear Meadows Lodge.
