Memorial Weekend!

  • 5 of 5

The lodge was immaculate and beautiful. It had all the space we could want for all 20 something of us. The driveway was steep but excellent for a good cardio workout! We walked up and down quite a few times for exercise each day. Loved the kitchen. Awesome home. Will come again.

This was the perfect place for our family reuion!

  • 5 of 5

This was an amazing home/lodge! The pictures and write up were accurate to the place - amenities, layout, very clean inside and out, well-maintained. We couldn't have asked for a better place to have our Family Reunion. Our host, Tom, was the best - check in was great and he was accommodating in every area we needed. We had plenty of room for everyone and the kitchen was beautiful as well as functional for such a large group. I loved every minute at the Lodge ... I even (almost) got used to the drive in and out :) Would definitely recommend Bear's Paw Lodge to anyone looking - you won't find anything better!

Amazing place!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at the Bear's Paw Lodge. We went to celebrate my husband's 40th birthday with friends, and I chose it because it was a big house and a central location for those who would be coming. The house itself is incredible - the pics don't do it justice - and it is very clean and comfortable. Tom was wonderful to work with. He met us at the house when we arrived and gave a full tour of the place, and was easily accessible throughout the weekend if we had any questions. We can't wait to go back, this time in the winter!

Sheer Perfection

  • 5 of 5

We gathered for a family reunion with 12 adults, and enjoyed this amazing home for a long weekend. The setting, architecture, and space were incredible! Extremely clean, well appointed with a fully stocked kitchen. Double oven and large cooktop made it easy to prep meals for our large group. The outdoor views and large deck area allowed us to spend many hours playing corn hole and relax in the many Adirondack chairs. We enjoyed playing ping pong as well. Beds were very comfortable, crisp linens and plentiful towels with complimentary soaps in the bathroom. The location was perfect for exploring the local hiking trails. Appreciated the recommendation from the owner to hike the 1k step trail nearby. Tom was a gracious home owner, greeting us upon arrival and made us feel quite welcome. We will no doubt return, and look to stay even longer! Highly recommend!!

Great weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful lodge that has been crafted with great care. It is very well maintained with nice furniture, appliances and amenities. This was our second trip to Bear's Paw and won't be our last. The host has been great to work with - good communication, the place was lit and inviting, very accommodating. Check in and out was so simple. The little touches abound from craft soaps and candles to nice towels and linens. The kitchen is extremely functional for a large group and well stocked with things like paper towels, foil, and trash bags. This is a beautiful and welcoming property and the host is a professional. You'll have a great time here.
