Family memories for a lifetime

  • Submitted: Aug 16, 2013

Our stay at Bear Country Lodge could not have been any better. After reading the website I was very impressed with the history and sense of pride shown. After speaking with Diane I knew without a doubt this is where we wanted to vacation. My husband and I and 4 kids, 18, 17, 14, and 7, stayed for a week. Upon arriving we commented on how well kept the grounds were. Diane greeted us at the door and I felt like we were friends. She was so welcoming and immediately we felt comfortable. When Diane opened the door to our chalet my 7 year old commented, " wait till you guys see this?...we all laughed but I was impressed that a 7 year old would notice or care about how beautiful the chalet was. It was very beautiful done in true Adirondack style, knotty pine throughout, cozy, roomy,and had everything we needed, including beautiful bedding. My husband and I loved the front porch with Adirondack chairs and gas grill for BBQ's. A great place to have our coffee in the morning and enjoy the sunrise, and also cook our dinners at night while watching the sunset and listening to the Loons. We had our own campfire that the kids loved and cooked smores on at night while gazing at the mesmerizing stars. Diane would come by every night to make sure we had everything we needed and give the kids a ride on the golf cart. The lake was fantastic with the family of loons to watch and hear, and we got a great photo of an American Bald Eagle flying right over our heads which Diane has now posted on Facebook. We biked, went swimming, boating, horseback riding, visited nearby attractions, and just relaxed. As we sat at the dinner table reconnecting with each other, laughing, realizing that our daughter was going off to college in the fall, we realized this vacation spending quality time with our children is just what we needed. Our family like a lot of families have children involved in activities, jobs that we tend to bring home with us and everyday routines that disconnect us. Bear Country lodge, Diane's hospitality, our quality family time and all the great laughter has left us with great memories that will last a lifetime.

Impeccably clean, Adirondack luxury, peaceful

Dear Diane,

Thank you so much for the warm hospitality and kindness you showed our family at our recent stay at Bear Country Lodge. From the moment we arrived, you made sure we had everything we could possibly need.

The chalet was impeccably clean and beautifully decorated - a perfect balance of rustic Adirondack charm and luxury ! We could tell right away how much thought you put into creating such a lovely space for your guests.

The property is secluded and peaceful yet there was much to do....a selection of kayaks, canoes, Row boats, pedal boats and inflatable tubes allows you to take in the beauty of the lake. And my husband particularly enjoyed the great fishing !


Having you ON SITE was a true blessing ! We really appreciated all of your suggestions for activities for our children both on the property and in the area. It was like we had our own personal concierge !

We wholeheartedly recommend Bear Country Lodge for anyone looking to escape the rapid pace of everyday life and enjoy some quiet peace in absolutely gorgeous surroundings.

Thank you,
The Greaves Family

Kind regards,
Diane

Your stress and worries will disappear

After the passing of my Father, I felt the need to whisk my Mother to a special place for a few days to take her mind off of things. This was the perfect place, as she was born and raised in a similar environment. This not only brought back childhood memories for her, but created new ones as well. We were pleasantly surprised upon entering our chalet, as it was clean, well appointed, and had that instant welcoming feeling. Diane was a gracious host, and made sure we had everything that we needed. It got very chilly one night and she delivered extra blankets, and an electric fireplace, even though our chalet had a wood stove that was more than ample. My 15 year old son and I enjoyed our time on the lake, and we thoroughly enjoyed listening to our echo's as we whistled to the resident Loons. There is nothing more peaceful than the call of the loon ! Once you arrive at Harrisburg Lake, you're stress and worries all disappear. Great spot for winding down, soul searching, and getting rid of the stress ! I highly recommend, and hope to return again soon. Thanks again Diane- it was a pleasure staying at Bear Country Lodge.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your review. So nice to see such closeness in a family. I hope this stay helped your Mom, you and Spence in your grieving process. I really enjoyed your company and especially joking Spence about his horseback riding experieince....Watershoes. Your Mom is as sweat as Peaches and Cream, and you follow in her footsteps.
Love, Diane

Once in a "Blue Moon"

Once in a "Blue Moon"
  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Jan 14, 2013
  • Stayed: Aug 2012
The modern day definition of a Blue Moon is when there are 2 full moons in one month. A Blue Moon occurred on August 31st, 2012, the week that our family stayed at the Bear Country Lodge in Stony Creek, NY and it was by far the most relaxing vacation that we had ever experienced together as a family. The Lodge is nestled smack dab in the middle of the Adirondack Mountains in Stony Creek, NY, resting on the shore of pristine crystal clear spring fed Harrisburg Lake. The chalet was well appointed with everything we needed, new appliances, new mattresses, all immaculately clean and tidy, a nice wood stove, a new HD TV, DVD player, great Wi-Fi connection, and board games to choose from. Canoes, kayaks, and pedal boats, to investigate beaver dams, lounging turtles, and yes, we even got to see a Black Bear taking a stroll. Our kids had a ball and just got reacquainted again as a family. Grampa even had a chance to teach his grandchildren how to fish, and Man can those kids swim ! This was a "Once in a Blue Moon vacation" for sure. Owner Diane was gracious, kind, and attentive to our every need during our stay at Bear Country Lodge, making certain that we had ample wood for our fire pit and every other basic need that we had as a Large family of 4 adults and 3 small children. Once the children were safely tucked away in bed, my parents my husband and I would sit around the camp fire exchanging stories as the spectacular Blue Moon competed with the beauty of the stars, the crisp mountain air, and the crackling attention of the warm and inviting fire. Afterwards the sounds of the Loons, Hoot owls, joined the party with their various songs and lulled us to sleep. Diane, thank you for helping our family to have one of the most outstanding and memorable vacations that we have ever experienced because of your attention to detail, your hard work, your love for people, and for following your dream. We had a wonderful vacation. Once in a Blue Moon is a metaphor that came true at Bear Country Lodge. Richard, Kathryn, Karen, Dan, Ethan, Colin and Madeline

Owner's Response: I just loved having you guys as my guests. Upon your arrival when you first walked in to the Main Lodge I had great feelings about all of you and felt we had an immediate connection. I was playing "The Sound of Music" and you said you had chills because you had commented before you arrived about how Bear Country Lodge reminded you of the "Sound of Music" with it's beautiful mountains, connection to nature, and spirituality. To see all of you connect as a family, fishing together, swimming in the lake, boating, sitting by the campfire at night , the sound of your laughter was a beautiful thing. When I get to see this, to experience this , I see God's work in progress and that is wonderful. I can not wait to see all of you again. Thank you so much. Much Love, Diane
