Bear Mountain Lodge

3249 Main Street , Bethlehem, NH 03574 USA (Show map) Diamond Collection

Professionally Inspected & Certified Diamond Collection


Magnificent log cabin bed & breakfast newly built in 2005 that is reminiscent of those built a century ago in our National Parks out West. It's handcrafted from huge Eastern White Pine logs that measure greater than 20" in diameter. While rustic in appearance, rest assured that the Lodge offers its guests the highest quality accommodations. The Lodge features nine romantic guest rooms, several of which have in-room jacuzzis, steam showers and fireplaces. With double pillowtop mattresses and high quality linens, the beds are extremely comfortable. All rooms have private baths and lots of amenities. The Lodge is set back on 26 wooded, private acres with direct views of Mt. Washington, a walking trail and frontage on the Ammonoosuc River. The expansive deck is a great place to sit and enjoy an afternoon refreshment and in the evenings guests gather around the firepit to meet new friends. Guests can enjoy a country breakfast in the dining room which offers both group and individual tables. A pantry provides complimentary soft drinks and snacks throughout the day. Enjoy skiing, hiking, biking or golf? Bretton Woods, Cannon Mountain, Franconia & Crawford Notch State Parks are all less than a 20 minute ride, and two in-town Donald Ross golf courses offer some spectacular scenary as a backdrop to a great round of golf. If you need to stay connected, the Lodge has high speed internet access, a guest telephone with local and long distance calls included and Cable TV in each guest room.

Lovely B&B !! Must visit!!

5 on January 23, 2017

My fiancé and I frequent B&Bs in the Nh area and absolutely loved this one! Michael the owner was extremely kind from the moment we walked in the door and he kindly showed us around and offered us cookies and ideas of things to do during our stay. Every morning for breakfast his wife made a delicious dish! The rooms are spacious and extremely clean. It is clear that they care about their business and who stays with them. The b&b is close to many activities and restaurants in the area so you don't have to drive too far. I would highly recommend staying here to anyone who wants to enjoy a private romantic get away with your significant other.

A Wonderful Getaway

Hospitality at its best! A very relaxing and peaceful atmosphere. Views are breathtaking and breakfasts were delicious. Close to nature, and the foliage changed daily. Love this place! Thank you for a wonderful getaway...Dawn & Nick

Best stay ever!

This was the best B & B we have ever stayed in. The room and view were great. The bed and pillows were soft and comfortable and the sheets felt like velvet. The breakfast was just delicious all three mornings we were there. Can't recommend it too highly.

Great place

We enjoyed our stay for our 12th anniversary. Very comfortable and warming. Michael and Carol made us feel welcome and at home from the moment we got there. They were able to help us a lot with places to eat and places to hike.

The perfect NH getaway

4.2 on March 25, 2014

We arrived somewhat late on the Friday of Martin Luther King weekend, yet the owner, Michael, was there to greet us at the door, give us a brief tour, and recommend places we could grab some food at that hour - a friendly, welcoming start to a wonderful weekend. This would be a theme throughout the weekend, making the Lodge a comfortable place to relax as we enjoyed its peacefulness and beautiful view. To illustrate how personable and kind Michael was - on Saturday night, he went out of his way to call the owner of this great restaurant in the next town over so that we could get in to a place that is normally booked. The rooms were quiet and spacious enough for our needs - all the natural wood gave it a rustic, cabin-type feel as well, which was perfect for a weekend away in New Hampshire. The breakfasts were tasty both days, and despite what some commenters have said, they were perfect portions for a normal appetite. The location was perfect - removed, but close enough to the small towns, skiing, and hiking trails the White Mountains are known for. All in all, we highly recommend the Bear Mountain Lodge and we look forward to returning.

Not to be missed !! Great stay!!

My husband and I celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary by spending 4 nights in the Eagle's Nest room. Being someone who is very cautious about B & B's, (I can be a little on the anti-social side, don't like sharing bathrooms, etc), this lodge not only met, but exceeded our expectations. The size of the lodge and the rustic decor are perfect. The grounds and views are beautiful. Everything was spotlessly CLEAN, warm, cozy and RELAXING. Of particular appeal to me was the breakfast set up; you're not sitting at a large dining room table in Grandma's old dining room. There are individual tables as you would find in a restaurant, logistically placed distance between tables allow you to keep to yourselves during breakfast, OR soclialize with other guests without having to move. I was enjoying myself so much, I actually spoke to other guests and socialized, but in no way felt pressured to do so. Carol is a fantastic cook and the breakfasts were out of this world. Carol putting out homemade cookies or fudge for mid afternoon snack was such a homey, considerate touch, I felt like a little kid again wanting to rush back to the lodge after being out all day just to see what had just come out of the oven. Mike is his own floor show, really and truly. He makes you comfortable, he makes you laugh, he's not intrusive, but somehow always there when you need something. All you have to do is mention a restaurant and he's already on the phone making reservations for you. We did not want to leave and we can't wait to go back. Checking out the calendar as we speak for the next excuse to get away....Valentine's day, birthday, so many reasons!! Really and truly, do not miss this place. You won't be disapponted.

Wonderful Stay

Very beautiful place to stay. Stayed there after our wedding. Rooms very clean. Friendly people and wonderful amenities. Breakfast was spectacular. Recommend to anyone. Have a dip in the hot tub and enjoy the evening by the outdoor fire. Will be back again.

Our 35 th Anniversay get away

We chose Mike & Carols bed n breakfast from this website and were Extremely happy with our choice. The lodge (aka their home) is warm and welcomeing as portrayed on their website. They go above and beyond to make everyone comfortable during their stay. We would certainly return and recommend the Bear Mountain Lodge to our friends.

Mini Moon at the Bear Mountain Lodge

4.8 on January 22, 2013

My husband and I went to the Bear Mountain Lodge for 3 nights after our wedding in Boston. We were warmly greeted by Carol as soon as we arrived, and we were given a tour of the lodge. We had to wear slippers or socks inside so it was very cozy :) We visited Bethlehem and Littleton for some shopping, then went snow shoeing at the lodge with Mike. It had just snowed and it was beautiful. We even blazed a few of our own trails. We were there over New Year's so we watched Mike's fireworks show on the porch, and had a champagne toast in the bar/rec room downstairs. The breakfasts were delicious and we never felt rushed. We had a very relaxing few days and would definitely recommend a trip to the lodge. Mike and Carol were great hosts! It wasn't an inexpensive few days so we will definitely need to save up before going back.

A Definite Must See

5 on December 17, 2012

From the moment we arrived we felt welcomed and at home in this beautiful B&B. My wife and I went here to elope and had the most wonderful time. Michael and Carol made our little big day so special in so many ways. I would defiantly recommend Bear MT Lodge to a friend, This place is simply amazing, theres so much more I could say but It would take to long so instead give this place a shot and you will not be disappointed!
