Hello and thanks for exploring our website. Bear Mountain Lodge was born from our love of the outdoors, log cabins and a desire to live and raise our family in the beauty of New Hampshire's White Mountains. Michael and I (Carol) were born in Marshfield and Dedham Massachusetts respectively. On our honeymoon to Alaska, we saw an incredible log cabin along the banks of the Chena River in Fairbanks and looked at each other and said "Someday." Years later after having two children, we began our search to find the perfect piece of land and build our little log cabin that we could escape to on weekends. Plans however changed during those 18 months of searching for land as we began to realize that we wanted to own our own business together. So Bear Mountain Lodge was born as we set out on the adventure of building the perfect log cabin B&B that we can share with others.
Michael is an avid outdoorsman and loves sharing that with our children Connor & Emily. His goal each day is to make sure that our guests have everything they need to enjoy their getaway. Whatever you need, the Marine in Michael will make sure it gets done. If you want to see him run, just try to beat him to the door upon returning from dinner as he's striving to be the best doorman/innkeeper in the world. Reviews on TripAdvisor are a testament to this.
I love to cook and decorate the Lodge, while also handling the business side of things as I graduated from Boston College with a degree in business management. I'm always looking for new ways to improve the Lodge and offer our guests the best experience possible. The best part of being an innkeeper for me is meeting people from around the world and developing friendships with our many repeat guests. And the memories we have from all of those who have eloped and gotten married here are one's that I'll cherish forever.
So we hope that you'll come experience Bear Mountain Lodge soon and we look forward to meeting you.
Michael & Carol Kerivan
