About Robert

My name is Robert and after years as a home builder I now manage 5 rental properties on a full time basis.

My wife and I love to stay in and share our properties with other families and groups who want to enjoy and be respectful of the beautiful homes we offer!

I can always be reached via email and text and usually reply within minutes to all inquiries, questions or issues.

I look forward to having you as my guest for your next vacation or getaway!!

Robert purchased this lodge in 2007

Why Robert chose Hunter

The location is amazing... The views are delightful... The house is kept immaculately clean and is very spacious & comfortable... If you read the many customer reviews you will see and get a feel for the vacation experience you can expect if you rent one of my properties.

What makes this lodge unique

Summer: The private community lake is across the street, a 50 yard walk down a gravel path. Kayaks and pedal boat are available at no cost. The lake is open from May 1 to October 30.

Winter: Hunter Mountain Resort is less than 1 mile away for skiing, riding and inner tubing

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thanks Jessica for your detailed review. As a home owner I depend on exit emails & frank reviews from my guests so to maintain a 5-Star accomodation!!

- Regarding the dishwasher: It's only 4 months old & I'm guessing the spinner somehow got blocked because it seems to be working fine now and no one else has ever complained about it.

- Thanks for the tip regarding upstairs air-flow. I just installed 2 new Wisper-Quiet oscillating tower fans that will guarantee a quiet cool breeze on even the muggiest of nights :)

Home away from Home...

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time this past weekend at the Black Bear Lodge. This was our first time using HomeAway for a trip and we had a great experience. Robert our host was very professional, communicative and super easy to work with. The home was as advertised and perfect for our two families, which included four adults and four children, ages 2 to 9. The home was clean, spacious and made our trip stress free. Thanks again Robert.

Great Stay

  • 5 of 5

This is our second time renting this property and once again it was a great experience. The house was very clean, spacious and enjoyable for all. There was no need for us to contact Robert on any issues because there weren't any concerns. There were plenty of towels, clean linens and everything was perfect. I would definitely rent this property again and look forward to coming back again next year. Thank you Robert for a wonderful house.

We have stayed at this property quite a few times and I always keeps us coming back. It is very close to the mountain. The owner is very friendly and great to deal with. We will be back next year.

Great House Close to the mountain

  • 5 of 5

The house was very spacious and close to the mountain. It had a great area for kids downstairs (arcade game, foosball) and the kitchen area was great for gathering, drinks, etc. It was also VERY clean. Then only downside to the house was that because it is all wood inside it is very loud. When people are going up and down the steps you can hear it everywhere. The owner was really easy to deal with and very responsive.

  • 5 of 5

Great Lodge! Lot's of Room. Foos ball & Galaga for the kids. 5-min drive to Hunter Mtn. Pleasant neighborhood. Nice walk around the lake. Cold temps required a lot use of the fireplace. Responsive owner. We had a great weekend.

Private Community Lake across the street
Car: recommended

The Black Bear Lodge is a private luxury log home in a beautifully setting on Hunter Mountain.

A stones throw from a private community lake for swimming, fishing and boating. Less than 1 mile to the Hunter Mountain Resort for 4 seasons of fun. Only 1 mile to town for restaurants, bars, movie theatre and shopping. Within easy driving distance to dozens of local area activities and sites.

We have a large driveway that can park 12 cars and are accessed by a newly paved and quiet neighborhood dead-end street that is town maintained and plowed in the winter. On-site Activities: Fire-Pit, Children's Wooden Swing and Activity Pay-Set.

The Black Bear Eagle Lodge is located on Pine Lane (on Hunter Mtn) overlooking a private lake in the exclusive and tranquil Colonel Chair subdivision that sits in the woods directly between the ski mountain and the Village of Hunter... Both are less than 1 mile away. Tannersville is 5 miles and Windham is only 9 miles away...
