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. We do not provide breakfast at The Inn and pets are not allowed at this location.
Our largest available suite. Magalloway Suite has its own sitting room with a sleeper loveseat which makes it perfect for a family with a small child or an executive who wants an area to work. This suite has a private bath, TV and Wifi.

In the autumn of 2002 Bear Tree Rental purchased a 6.2-acre parcel of land upon which four unique log structures pre-existed. The uniqueness of the buildings, coupled with their layout on the site had great appeal to us.
The site has a compound configuration reminiscent of the plot plans associated with the old hunting and fishing camps from a bye-gone era complete with the traditional game pole. To whet the appetite of all outdoor enthusiasts, there is a trout-feeding pond from which the neighboring deer and moose frequently drink.
Adjacent to the pond, there is a picnic area with several tables and a barbecue pit. Toward the back of the property, there are game trails and a snowmobile trail that makes for a great game viewing adventure.
Over the winter months, (02 – 03), the interiors of these buildings were refurbished with a goal of adding all the modern amenities while preserving the charm and rugged appeal of the past. Careful thought has gone into the furnishing of each unit including memorabilia, etc. in an attempt to preserve a nostalgic atmosphere.
