Grounds not kept, check in guy snippy and never looked at me and kept his eyes on his desk in front of him. Website descriptions quite deceiving.

I couldn't BEAR the thought of leaving a bad revie
The inn was clean and the owners were very friendly. It's perfect if you just want a clean, simple, comfortable place to stay. There's free wifi, a mini fridge in your room, and a tv downstairs if you need it. The bear decorations are excessive and adorably wholesome. They reminded me of when I used to stay at my grandma's as a kid (I mean that in the best way). Also, breakfast was AWESOME and made to order. Who doesn't love free pancakes and fresh coffee?! Definitely worth the money!

Enjoyable stay
This was my second stay at Bears Lair Inn. I stayed a few years ago, and when I was planning a trip to come back to Stowe, Bears Lair was my first choice for where to stay. The rooms are well-appointed and comfortable. The owners are welcoming, friendly, and knowledgeable about where to go to and ski conditions at the nearby ski areas. I have a number of dietary restrictions for which I need special, hard to find foods. They were accommodating by cooking up the special foods that I brought that needed to be cooked and by providing me with hot water to make my special instant oatmeal. I could not be happier with our stay.

4/10 Fair

First the dirt drive and parking was muddy with pot holes and somewhat hidden concrete obstruction. Grass was not cut nor was the lawn maintained. Shower and sink did not drain well and the management had a tin ear. Food was good but the cleanliness was not what we would expect in New England. No place to hang clothing. Otherwise the staff was very friendly but a little passive. There was no comfortable seating in the room. The price was reasonable and that might make it so that you could overlook the mud and inside dust.

Loved this place!
This is a quaint, clean, family owned business that caters to their customers. If you like comfort, cleanliness, and being treated like you were their only customer this is the place for you. Laid back, relaxing with all the comforts of home without having to lift a finger yourself. And let's not forget you get served an amazing, home cooked breakfast! Only downfall, no hair dryers in the rooms. Not the end of the world!!

Charming B&B very close to the mountains
This place is absolutely charming. We had the best sleep at that B&B during our short trip. We adored our room. It definitely has a character. We enjoyed the full breakfast. We liked the fact that the breakfast tables are shared with other guests, so that you could socialize with them. The location is great as well, Very close to Smugglers Notch and Von Trapp's Lodge - two landmarks not to be missed.
