About Patrick Kelley

The Bear Lodge was built in 1992 by the 3 Partners of Bear Lodge: Dan Legere, Fran Loranger and Patrick Kelley. We all wanted a place to call our own on weekends to enjoy those epic ski days when it is difficult to get to Sunday River Ski Resort from our homes spread all over the Northeast! Being 5 to 10 minutes away helps us enjoy our passion of making tracks on fresh snow! And now we've grown to 10 and we have great stories to share in the years to come. Bear River flows along 3 acres of woods and delivers new sand each spring which creating our own secluded beach out back and lending itself to exploring, fishing and easy day hikes with your little tykes.

Sporting a wrap around deck and sleeping 14, it's also a great weekend getaway for friends - old and new!

Patrick Kelley purchased this lodge in 1992

Why Patrick Kelley chose Newry

The Bear Lodge is the only rental in the area with a cedar log cabin sauna just a couple of steps from the back door. The spacious family room offers an air drying rack system for boots-ski and hiking alike-and a radiant floor providing year-round warmth, convenience and comfort.

Perfect ski lodge!

  • 5 of 5

The home is exactly as described, clean and well equipped. Plenty of wood for the fireplace!

The location to Sunday River skiing was about 15 minutes or less with Sunday

River Brewery close by! There is plently of space for a couple of families and the sauna was a plus! Information to know: the Master Bedroom (the only room with just 1 bed) and the second bathroom are in the basement. A great location and perfect stay, we had a Blast despite a wind chill of -25! No, that is not a typo.

Wonderful experience! Large field next door was incredible for our large group and the yard games that occurred. River and waterfalls nearby for quick access to fun times. Porch and fireplace were clutch. Highly recommend!

The house was amazing it had more than we needed! It was so peaceful and amazing

  • 5 of 5

The house was amazing! It was so beautiful and we easily slept 13 people with a few beds to spear! The great room was huge and all of us fit perfectly in it. The deck made wating the stars perfect. The location was perfect about a 10 min drive to hiking trials and a jumping rock. This is defiantly a place you should consider!! We are thinking about coming back !!

Ideal spot for a ski getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We had a large group of friends and family stay at the house over President's Day weekend and had a wonderful time! The house comfortably fit everyone with room to spare. The large kitchen and couch areas were perfect for relaxing after skiing. The huge highlight was the sauna. After a long day on the mountain, it was the best way to relax. The house is close to Sunday River Mountain with several restaurants, bars and breweries nearby. I can't recommend this house enough.

Great spot for a bigger group. We had 13 people & it accommodated as advertised. Easy to deal with.

  • 5 of 5

We didn't have great weather but the space was great & had more on hand than anticipated. The stream was a nice little perk even though the weather didn't cooperate.

Outstanding Rental Property!!

  • 5 of 5

We rented the Bear Lodge for the July 24, 2016 Tough Mountain Challenge weekend and had a great time.The house is in perfect condition and in a great location. Although we didn't use the banya, we could see that it would be a great place to relax after a day of skiing. The house is spacious and has everything that you would need. The property is private and the owners are easy to work with. Will definitely rent again when back in the area.
