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 :)

Clean, spacious, gorgeous home.

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of 13 with ages ranging from 2 1/2 to 73 and all were happy with the house. The kids and adults loved the game room and everyone loved sitting on the decks or around the fire pit. We found plenty to do in and around the town of Hunter to suit every interest. The beach area was well kept and the swimming gradual enough for any age or level swimmer. Overall we loved our stay at Black Bear Lodge and would definitely rent here again in the future.

Great Property for Families

  • 5 of 5

Our family of eight, including a 4 year-old and 17-month old twins had a marvelous week at this home. Everything was as described. We appreciated how clean and well maintained the home was. A few of the features that we enjoyed the most were the deck with the two tables for outside dining; the split of the bedrooms with 3 on the top floor and 2 more on the bottom (with the kitchen and living area on the 2nd floor in-between) that allowed the twins to go to bed early (and get up early); the playset at the house; the beach access to the beautiful lake across the street; and the life vests; kayaks; and paddleboat that added to the enjoyment of the lake.

Besides the activities at the house, we really enjoyed Dolan's Lake in Hunter, the Windham Path Trail (easy to push a stroller around on), the Katterskill Falls, and the Hunter Sky Ride (chairlift).

What impressed me most, though, was the owner's responsiveness. We had a minor issue, not related to the house itself, on July 3rd (a holiday for most people). The owner got back to us right away and resolved our concern very quickly. After the rental, he followed up, looking for feedback, and got back to me very quickly on that as well.

We are looking forward to returning in the future.

Great location and spacious

  • 4 of 5

We had a great weekend at Black Bear lodge....even saw a black bear while driving nearby. There was plenty of space for 16 of us and we especially enjoyed all being able to sit at the table together. Only caution was to watch the younger children near the stairs. The location worked out well for hiking, viewing the falls, and dinner in Windham. I would recommend this for any family get together.

Perfect for our Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful property in a beautiful setting. I booked it, along with another property for a family reunion, but we ended up using this place for the get-togethers with the group because this house has such great large common spaces for gathering. The wrap around deck was perfect for our cookout, the indoor areas were great for the night that was too cool to gather outside, and the firepit was nice, too. Robert, the owner, was very responsive and helpful, both before, during and after our visit, and even took the time to send some left-behind shoes to us. I know from renting via VRBO in the past that this is very important. The house is top-quality in every way, and we could not have been happier. If a future reunion takes us back to the Catskills, I would love to use this place again!

Well organized owner and very comfortable stay

  • 5 of 5

Black Bear Lodge is one of the best places we've stayed so far, and we've been to so many places since we rent a home 2-3 times in a year. Robert is very well organized and it showed in how well he has taken care of his property. This home is well-maintained and very clean. Overall, we had a very comfortable stay. We will surely be back in the near future.

Great Find

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the Black Bear Lodge was excellent. Robert was accessible and attentive, the house was clean and comfortable, and the location was perfect. The fire pit was well-stocked with wood and there were plenty of chairs both inside and out on the spacious deck. We'd be happy to stay here again.

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!!! **
