I can give Bear Creek Mountain Lodge *6* stars because that is how many hunters were in our party last November for an Elk hunt. The lodge was great, just as advertised, everything looked just like the pictures. I have hunted this area for many years but this is the first time I had stayed at the lodge, it will not be the last. The owners were great to deal with and the on site caretaker could not have been better. All six members of my party agreed that the lodge was a keeper and that they would be very happy to return when hunting this area in the future. Six happy hunter = SIX stars! That is as good as it gets.
