“Cozy b&b with warm and welcoming hosts.”
I stayed at Bear Inn the Woods in January with my daughter. I am from the area but live in Florida and wanted my 4 yr old to experience the snow and scenery. Lynne made wonderful breakfasts and was very welcoming and kid friendly.
My husband Mark & I recently stayed for 2 very comfortable nights. We found this B & B extremely accommodating and Lynne & Carl wonderfully warm (as well as their 2 sweet puppies). Breakfast was deliciously over the top, if you leave hungry, it would be your own fault! If you enjoy snowmobiling, this is paradise! The main trail is less than 1/4 mile down the road to some of the best conditions around. There is plenty of parking for your vehicles & trailers and you can ride your sled right up to the front door! We highly recommend a stay here and we will certainly return with our friends!

I was there with my wife and son and found it be very clean. The food was very good. We enjoyed the conversation with Lynne and Carl and the cohost Vicky. There were other guest there that we also enjoyed interacting with. All around enjoyed our visit and will go back for sure.
I am so glad that you, Lynne and Carl, 2 seniors, were there for us, 2 seniors. We loved seeing the deer in the backyard. The food was absolutely wonderful! We have been guests at Bear Inn the Woods for over 12 years-- before it was even located in Remsen. We return at least twice a year-- because we can relax here and are very comfortable.
“Wonderful people with a nice comfy place to rest and relax”
I felt very at home here. The food was delicious and the place was very nice. Couldn't have had a better time and the price was very good too.
“Very Comfortable--Perfect for my needs! Loved it!”
I stayed twice at Lynn and Carl's--once on my way to Canada and I enjoyed it so much I chose to stay upon my return trip. I was travelling with my two very well trained doggies, and this place is a gem. I"m sure I'll return every year as this is an annual trip for me and their location is fabulous. They were very welcoming as a pet friendly B & B, and their yard is spacious, abuts woods, and the dogs had a blast. I stayed in two different rooms, both were very clean. The beds were queen sized, and very comfortable and cozy. The shared baths were also very clean with nice toiletries provided. First night Lynn cooked dinner for me as I'd done a ton of driving and she will provide dinner for a modest fee if notified ahead of time. It was an excellent chicken stir fry. Soooo relaxing and I enjoyed conversing with Lynn and Carl. The breakfasts are hearty and as Lynn says, "No one needs lunch afterwards!" It was a great way to start the day--asparagus quiche one morning, and delicious poached eggs over toast with spinach and a lovely sauce the second morning. There is always fruit, and sweet breads/coffee cakes. Lynn is very accommodating to your times, as well...I needed to leave early and she whipped up these meals with ease, even when the other guests were having breakfast later. Also the coffee was really good (and I'm picky!) It's a nice, family style atmosphere. I met one of the other guests and I enjoyed the comaraderie. Lynn and Carl are friendly without being intrusive, and I found them to be gracious hosts. If you're seeking a five star pristine place--more like a hotel--with no other guests around, etc., this isn't the place for you. If you enjoy a family atmosphere, with hosts who obviously love their home and hosting others, this is a gem--a real down home B & B.
Great food, good balcony. Hosts were friendly and made us feel welcome. Good location at the Adirondack Gateway.
“Dog poop everywhere in the yard, smells of mold and mildew indoors, and doors that don't properly shut.”
This was probably the scariest place I've ever stayed in my life. You stay in the basement of a one story house in which the entrance to the lower level is in the back. When we pulled up to the house we immediately had to dodge dog crap all over the yard. There was a guy drinking a tall boy in the community room that explained to us that there were a few others staying on the property and not to be startled if we see someone in here during the night. We noticed the smell of mildew and dog urine in our room. The sheets were rather tattered and should be replaced. The reviews on this site must be a mistake. Stay away!
Response from the owner I'm surely sorry this guest had such a negative experience and wish he had spoken about it while here so his concerns could have been addressed immediately. We make it clear that we rent a basement apartment, easily accessed by driving down a path leading directly to the back door. It is comfortably cool in the hot, humid summer weather and warm and cozy when winter arrives. Yes, there are often other guests coming and going in the community room. That is how a B&B operates and interaction with others is a main reason folks choose a B&B. We have never had a problem with guests being inconsiderate of one another. Our bedding is clean, neat, and replaced often. When this guest was here, I was out-of-state--leaving the B&B in the very capable hands of our assistant hostess--who has had many complimentary statements made in our guest books about her interaction with guests. During this same time period, my husband had a medical emergency, which was the reason for the yard not being properly picked up after the dogs. For this, we truly apologize. Our 2 overly-friendly dogs are kept in an area away from guests unless the guests WISH to visit with them. The door had just broken, our contractor couldn't repair it, and it's being replaced this week. It could ALWAYS be shut--just needed the lever lifted upwards when entering or leaving. I guess potential guests will just have to check all the many other positive reviews we've had over the years and realize we have had MANY very satisfied, and often returning, customers.
“Our bear in the woods stay experience...”
The owners are awesome people we Recomend highly to stay at bear in the woods close to Resturants that are famous like buffalo head less than 30 MIN and so Peacefull if you like birds chirping to wake you up you will love this local. Also the Hovey's put together a Beautuiful big breakfast to enjoy and the candle ambiance a plus and is clean and smelled terrific when we got there the blueberry candle a delight and oh so pretty with lights and there are games to play huge TV to watch and more . And the water healthy to drink you will feel healthy for the duration of drinking this H2O and smelling the very fresh air every morning Mmme I miss it already and in summer there is a water park for the kids and is dog friendly too .Oh and bed is good night sleep comfortable. Only one hour from Syracuse.
When I arrive it was raining and damp.They had a wood burning stove going and before long I was toasty warm. Meals are wholesome and delicious. If you go away hungry it's your own fault. Lynne and Carl are very gracious hosts. They make you feel right at home. I plan on going back again and again.
