Welcome To The Inn at Bear Tree featuring Murphy's Steakhouse, an idyllic destination for lodging and fine dining.
The Inn at Bear Tree is an historic landmark property in the northern village of Pittsburg. This well known property dates back to the late 1800's and was once a very popular and successful lodging business known as John's Lodge.
Bear Tree Rental Properties, LLC purchased the property in June of 2006 and immediately began restoration, renovation and construction mindful of preserving as many and as much of the historic elements as possible such as the original beams in both Memory Lane and Sleigh Run dining rooms; original floors in most of the building and original doors to the five available suites for lodging.
The Inn at Bear Tree featuring Murphy's Steakhouse opened to the public on December 7, 2007.
As with other Bear Tree properties (Woodland Cabins on Route 3 and Lakeside Cabins & Lodge on 1st Conn. Lake and now The Glen), The Inn at Bear Tree accentuates the historic past of the Connecticut Lakes region and has a rustic feel with memorabilia and photographs from the past. Our guests enjoy the rich traditions of the old lodges of the past with 21st Century comforts.
The view of 1st Connecticut Lake and Mount Magalloway are spectacular. The Inn is in the heart of the outdoor recreation available to our guests; direct access to snowmobile trails, snow shoeing in the winter; swimming and kayaking in the pristine waters of the Connecticut Lakes in the summer and of course being on the direct route of Moose Alley for viewing of local wildlife such as moose, deer, bear, turkey and many other examples of wildlife.One night stays can be accommodated.
