We spent the weekend in the beautiful post and beam house on the property for our grandsons graduation from Bridgton Academy. Both Brian and Julie were wonderful hosts, very friendly and accommodating. The house was clean, neat and very homey with everything we needed for a stay with our family of seven.

Absolutely love this place. I actually asked my wife to marry me on a small mountain not far from here. And though it is under new management the inn is still amazing.

Great new destination in the lakes region of Maine. It was awesome to stay there! The new Innkeepers were very helpful and friendly. They pointed out good locations for hiking, exploring, and fishing, and suggested some great local places for dinner. They also had helpful suggestions for local day trips. They were all-around excellent hosts. The breakfast choices each morning...

I spent last weekend at the Bear Mountain Inn and I had so much fun, I'm already wanting to plan a trip back. It is under new management, and they were the most accommodating and sweetest people.

Where to begin, After 8 years of dating we were finally engaged and planning a wedding! Because we had been together so long many of our family and friends were already very close. To better bring everyone together we decided we wanted to find a location where we could all stay for the weekend and enjoy a family reunion themed...

Dear Shayna, I apologize that you felt there was miscommunication during the planning period for your wedding. It is a big job being the innkeeper & owner and wanting to be attentive to my visiting guests in addition to working with my future brides in planning their special day.

We had a delightful time. Thanks for the sugar cookies, morning buffets, ever present coffee, fireplace and the outdoor hot tube! We also enjoyed the snowshoeing. :-) Several nice restaurants as well...particularly the English Tea store.

The Bear Mountain Inn staff was wonderful, warm, and accommodating, even in the depths of winter and a snow storm. They went out of their way to help my group, even going into town to purchase a puzzle for us when we said we wanted to complete one. The breakfast was wonderful, the rooms were well-appointed and expertly clean, and...

The charming innkeeper Christi and her chef Terry do a wonderful job of making a guest feel cared for. I was in Maine because of a tragedy in the life of a close friend. We were all welcomed with sensitivity and respect for the circumstances. Wonderful breakfasts are served in a lovely sun filled dining room. My guest room was...

To say this was the perfect trip is an understatement. My family was able to share our wedding day with my husband and I, even though we initially wanted to elope. Christi was so accommodating from the moment I contacted her about the wedding date in Feb. until we left the inn. We stayed at the Sugar Bear Cottage with...
