Our goal was ultimate privacy for our guests so the Lodge is set back on 26 private acres with panoramic views of the Presidentials ... and not a neighbor in sight.

The greatroom, featuring floor to ceiling windows with sweeping views to Mt. Washington, is the center of Bear Mountain Lodge. Many guests enjoy taking in the view while playing a game of checkers or watching the Cog Railway ascend Mt. Washington through the spotting scope.

Filled with comfortable furniture and a wood soapstone stove, the Greatroom is a favorite place of guests to relax upon returning from dinner.

Enjoy playing pool in the recreation room.

The expansive deck off the greatroom is a great place to enjoy your morning coffee and watch the sunrise over Mt. Washington - the view during fall foliage is just spectacular.

In the afternoons, guests often take Carol's wonderful cookies and drinks out to enjoy the views, read a book or choose where to dine that evening.

Your ultimate relaxation is our goal and the backyard has been designed to deliver just that. A soothing hot tub (open year round) awaits your return from a day of hiking or skiing and our hammock is the perfect place to cuddle up and enjoy the views to Mt. Washington.

In the summer and foliage evenings, let Michael know if you'd like to enjoy the firepit and he'll gladly light it for you to take in Bethlehem's beautiful stars.

Winter at the Lodge is spectacular. With onsite snowmobile and snowshoe trails, there's plenty to do for snow lovers like us. We're also just 15 minutes from great skiing at Bretton Woods and Cannon Mtn. To view more photos of the Lodge and our guests, go to the Photo Gallery.

Our Yellow Labs, Rocket and Remi, are very friendly and love to play ball or fetch sticks in the backyard. They are never allowed in the guest rooms, but they'd be happy to visit with you on the deck or in the backyard if you like. (Photo February 2010)

In efforts to be as environmentally friendly as possible, we've instituted the following "green initiatives". We've also just placed recycling baskets in each guest room to make it even easier for our guests to recycle.

  • The Lodge was built using the highest quality energy saving products available
  • The Lodge is heated by an efficient, energy saving radiant heat system
  • We recycle all paper, card board, glass, plastic and cans
  • We've initiated a kitchen composting program
  • We use natural cleaning products where possible
  • We've installed energy efficient compact fluorescent lighting
  • In order to conserve natural resources and keep as much detergent out of our environment, we have a towel reuse program and change sheets only every fourth day unless requested.

We've partnered with Clean the World, a non-profit that works to not only reduce waste created by the hospitality industry but to prevent the millions of deaths caused by hygiene-related illnesses every year. Clean the World has put over 6 million soap bars and 200,000 pounds of shampoo and conditioner back into human use, simultaneously eliminating nearly 340 tons of waste. We're very proud to show our support and donate to this worthy cause.
