Coffee

You might have noticed the signs in front of the stable saying Bear Mountain Coffee Company, coming soon. This last year, we’ve been roasting samples and getting feedback to help us understand what to serve. We get asked when are you opening?, well it is coming soon, hopefully spring 23′.

Chris is working on the build out of the coffee trailer for the drive through but of course our lodging operations come first so there is only so much time for things but it’s coming soon and we’re very excited to start mass roasting our own coffee and serving delicious coffee drinks for our area, as well as stocking our cabins with our own coffee.

Thank you for your patience.

Pivot

If you’ve followed us any you know we’ve moved a couple of times, well what’s one more time? Melissa might be getting a little tired of all the moving, especially with a new baby, Baby Asher arrived back in July, he’s a bundle of energy and an amazing blessing in all of our lives.

Part of our planning involved evolving the stable into a wedding venue/event center but after almost two years of working on it and marketing it we decided to pivot away from that. We looked at the results and the local market and it was not the optimal way to use the properties to maximize revenue for the business.

So we packed up and moved into what was the bridal suite and banquet room and have adapted it into a comfortable barndominium for us. We started renting out the house, we now call it the White river mountain manor, it is listed and is perfect for families and groups.

Lodge and Eagle Crest update

The lodge is now listed online to rent on our website and on vrbo and airbnb, and we just had our first guests this last weekend, remember if you book direct you save money. The lodge sits on the front of the property and US highway 62 it is a 3 bedroom log home, with 1.5 bath, it doesn’t have a jacuzzi bath but we put a hottub on the back deck, there is a full kitchen, dining area and living room with wood stove. The lodge is an adults only rental. We loved living in the lodge and think you’ll enjoy it too, we have introductory rates loaded that are a little lower for now so take advantage.

Eagle Crest is our newest cabin and we think it is one of the most spectacular, it is located on county road 206, 1 mile directly behind the Bear Mountain property, there isn’t much traffic so it’s peaceful and private. Chris is currently doing some remodeling to the cabin and anticipates it being listed to rent in March, stay tuned! Eagle Crest cabin sits next to the White river mountain manor but still feels private, there is about 100 yards separating the two and it’s on the garage side of the house so you don’t see each other from outside living spaces. The cabin is on top of the mountain at the highest point in Wolf Ridge overlooking the White river, it’s a gorgeous view and you just might get a glimpse of a bald eagle, they live and fish on the white river.

Eagle Crest is a 2 story one bedroom, cabin, it has a spiral staircase (so be aware if stairs are difficult for you). You enter on the upper floor to the kitchen and living area, it has a full kitchen and wood stove, the view from your dining area window is of the woods and white river, the upper back deck has a 2 person hottub that overlooks the white river valley with a picturesque view. Downstairs is a bathroom with shower and bedroom with a king size bed. Pictures and listing coming soon.

2022 Check in and out times changed

For 2022 we are changing our check in time to 4pm or after and our check out time to by 10 am. We needed to make this change, since we’ve added more cabins, to make sure we have enough time to get cabins ready from check out to the next check in. We will do our best to allow early check ins or late check outs when we can. Thank you for your understanding.

New blessings

We’ve recently been blessed to purchase a house and another cabin that both have views of the White River and are back behind the Bear Mountain Property on County Road 206. We have decided to live in the house and the new cabin and Lodge will be added to the Bear Mountain rental inventory.

We have lived in the lodge for the last 6 months and finished up remodeling it, I just added a new rear deck and a 4 person hot tub to it since it does not have a jacuzzi tub. The lodge is the oldest cabin and is a 3 bedroom, it will be adult only due to the hot tub liability.

The new cabin will be called Eagle Crest (and yes there are bald eagles to see) and is one mile behind Bear Mountain directly on county road 206. It is a 800 sq ft one bedroom, two story and has an incredible mountain view of the white river. I’m sure it will be a favorite like the Chalet is. I anticipate it being available in early 2022, we have some remodeling we want to do it first. There will be a 2 person hot tub on the deck overlooking the river 🙂

We look forward to sharing this new blessing in 2022!

Hideaway: ready to rent

The Hideaway is a large luxury studio apartment located behind the Lodge and Luxury log cabin, it’s attached to the front of the Shop. We lived in this apartment for the first year. We have been adding a Jacuzzi/shower combo and a privacy fence in front of the porch. Melissa is decorating it Jesse James/outlaw style. The Hideaway has a full kitchen, with stainless appliances, living/dining area and a new King size memory foam bed. Also a private and partially enclosed and screened porch is on the front and facing woods, like all units it has a weber charcoal grill.

The Hideaway is available to book at $129/nt, with a 2 night minimum

The couples that have stayed in it so far have loved it.

Lodge-change of plans

So the original plan was to remodel the lodge and rent it out. We have decided to move into it. We have moved out of the apartment in the shop and into the lodge. The Lodge and Luxury are attached to each other but there is a empty room between them that we have sealed off and insulated to sound proof.

We are going to turn the apartment at the front of the shop, that we’ve lived in the last year, into a rental. It will be called the Hideaway, we are installing a jacuzzi tub and then it will be ready to rent, hopefully by mid April.

The Presidential

The Presidential is now open for business, we have rented it several times already. The presidential is built into one side of Stable. It has two master bedrooms (1 king and 2 queens) both with their own master baths with Jacuzzis and showers, full kitchen, dining table and living area with infrared fireplace. The deck has some incredible sunset mountain vista views and has patio furniture and a weber charcoal grill. It sleeps 6 very comfortably. Try it out we know you’ll like it.
