About Diane M. Daly
I have always had a deep love for nature which my Father had instilled in me since I was a child. I was committed all my life to working hard and making enough money to be able to retire in the Adirondack Mountains that I love so much. I am a graduate of Paul Smiths College, specializing in Culinary arts and Hospitality management. My Father sent me to Paul Smith's to learn about the industry and take over our family business that he had purchased in 1960. I had to work very hard and prove myself to him before he would gift the property to me. I worked in the appraisal field for approximately 30 years and had a very successful Real Estate Appraisal Firm with 2 offices in Delray Beach and Palm Beach Florida , specializing in multimillion dollar properties. I enjoyed my work, met a lot of interesting people, however did not like sitting behind a computer and would always be dreaming of getting out of the city, away from the stress and back to the mountains. In 2012 I finally was able to totally renovate and reopen our property with the new name " Bear Country Lodge." I am living my dream and I love being able to share this beautiful place with my guests. It is my guests who always tell me "It's Magical".
Diane M. Daly purchased this House in 2005
Why Diane M. Daly chose Stony Creek
Are you looking for a 'True Adirondack Experience', but want the luxury of an elegant Bavarian style chalet. My Father traveled around the world as a Chief Engineer with the Merchant Marines. He had been everywhere in the world and when he found our property he fell in love with it's uniqueness. The mountains, the peace and quiet, the magnificent stars at night, the calling of the loons. Nestled amongst 100 FT pines Bear Country Lodge is enchanting, swim in our spring fed mountain magical lake, go fishing, go canoeing, paddle boarding, kayaking, hike the beautiful close by trails, sit by your own PRIVATE CAMPFIRE, ( not one that you have to share with the rest of the resort) The chalets are luxurious and cozy with knotty pine very Adirondack style interior, decorated in the Native American style. Luxurious Denali bedding. My Father originally purchased this property as the Original Stony Creek Dude Ranch back in 1960. I have been coming here for over 50 years now. Please read about our History on owner's website.

Our stay at Bear Country Lodge with Diane was absolutely amazing!! We have 4 kids ages 2-11 and there was something for everyone. We stayed for a week and didn’t have to leave once. The kids loved all the games and activities. The lake was beautiful and great for a swim and boating. The cabins were immaculate and Diane’s attention to detail was perfect. We didn’t want for anything. Diane was a warm attentive host. We loved our stay and are already planning a trip back next year.
Thank you so much for visiting BEAR COUNTRY LODGE. You were GREAT guests and a beautiful family. So happy your children enjoyed all of the amenities, the lake, all my boats, paddle boards. I especially loved how they spent so much time on my new 9 hole ADIRONDACK theme mini golf course RIGHT ON SITE and that they took the challenge I offer of learning all the fun educational facts about the Adirondacks and won free t shirts and other gifts and prizes at the store. Can't wait to see you next year.
Loved It, great place to stay with Family.
We loved the property. Outstanding place to relax and unwind with our family!
