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 Mountain

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 :)

Better than expected...minutes from Hunter!

  • 5 of 5

We had a large group that ranged in age from 1 to 40+ and we all had a wonderful time. With 5 families including 8 kids, we weren't sure if any house would properly accommodate us and this one did a great job. There was plenty of space for everyone to gather on the main floor by the fire or at the large dining table, as well as for the kids to separate downstairs. Despite the freezing temperatures outside during our stay, we ventured to Hunter which was extremely close. Overall, the home and our stay exceeded our expectations and we would happily return.

Great house

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I took our kids to the house over our February break. The house was better than what we expected. It was very spacious and clean. The kids loved playing with the arcade the games and the playground outside . The kitchen was very spacious with a very long comfortable dining room table. Perfect for a large crowd. We want to book for next year! Perfect vacation ! Thank you Robert, everything was great

Beautiful house! Exceptional owner! A+++++

  • 5 of 5

This house was exactly what was advertised.....Beautiful and very comfortable. We were a group of 18 (ages 12-50) no complaints from anyone! Which is hard to achieve in a group that size. Lol. Robert, the owner was very easy to communicate with and was very quick to respond to questions. There are nice touches all around the house, comfortable beds, and very well equipped kitchen. We had a wonderful experience. Also very close to Hunter Mountain.

Beautiful, spacious property

  • 5 of 5

This property was perfect for our group of 15 adults. It was spacious (the huge dining table was a plus!) and the photos were as advertised. Everything was well maintained and clean. We had a bit of trouble with the Wi-Fi here and there, but overall, we loved this property and would stay here again. Robert, the owner, was very responsive and helpful as well.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the great review and I'm so happy you all enjoyed and look forward to having you back!! I'm sorry you had some issues with the WiFi and am thinking it just needed to be re-booted; but will check to make sure.

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...

** THIS IS THE PERFECT LOCATION; CLOSE TO ALL, YET PRIVATE AND SECLUDED!!! **
