Bear Inn the Woods is a rustic retreat where you can put your feet up and completely relax or use as a base to enjoy all the region has to offer--both rural and urban. It's become known for its full country breakfast served each morning. Other meals can be purchased if desired, with advance notice. Guests are also allowed to use the kitchen facilities to fix meals on their own. The gathering room with its HD TV, CD and DVD players, books, magazines, and games is a welcoming spot for guests to gather and visit.In the winter, the woodstove particularly beckons one to pull up the rocking chair and get cozy with a good read. The large, park-like backyard is available year round to watch for wildlife, relax in the lounge chairs and glider, play lawn games, build a campfire, fix a meal on the BBQ grill, and slide on the hills in the winter.
The inn is open year round with special gifts in all seasons. Spring brings the baby leaves and the peepers calling from the pond.Summer offers flowers all around, fireflies at night, and a million stars in the sky. The colors of autumn are magnificent right in the backyard with reds, yellows and oranges painting the trees.Then winter comes with its quiet and twinkling white lights and snow makes a carpet in which to play!
