1/5 Terrible

Travelled with family
We said Terrible because we arrived after midnight. Drove slowly up the long mountain driveway and arrived at Overlook Lodge to find it locked. We called before to let them know we would be showing up at midnight and they said no problem. We called the front desk and the phone rang for one half hour. My daughter called as well. (For the hotel you can check your phone records early early am on Apr 14). We gave up, crept down the mountain to a Welcoming Holiday Inn. Later we learned there was a different building apparently that we missed...but why didnt anyone answer the phone??!! ) So, the place could be nice, we will never know. We left pretty upset. -Peter

Double room with a beautiful lake Mountain View at the overlook lodge. Walls are thin. Wonderful place inside the state park, half way up the mountain. Simple decor but worth everything! We loved it.

Hikers Beware- Be careful - this is not the inn at bear mountain. There is literally nothing here nor any good way of getting anything without driving and Uber does not serve the area. The breakfast included in our stay is not at the hotel - it’s a drive away - wish we had known so we could have stayed somewhere else.
