About the property:
The shared saltwater pool is located right beside the office where you will check-in and is open May through September. The pool is available to all the guests on our property from 9am to 9pm. The community fire pit is located about ¼ mile down the driveway, for your evening s’mores around the campfire. While Bear Lodge offers gorgeous views, hike the Little Mountain Summit trail for even more stunning views. The parking area holds 10-12 cars. Additional parking space is available at the office, about 1/4 mile away.
Please Note: The driveway to Bear Lodge is steep and windy – 4 switchbacks up from our check-in office. Vehicles over the size of a 15 passenger van will not easily make it up the driveway and around the final corner. A large bus could park in our main parking lot by our office – please pre-arrange with guest services before arrival.
