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 Chalet in 1960

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.

                                                                    karen w.

                                                                    We just got back from a wonderful vacation at Bear Country Lodge. My husband and two children (age 6 and 13) had an awesome time. First the necessities. The cabins are very comfortable and clean. The owner has decorated the cabins very nicely and has thought of "comfort" with furnishings. Every morning my kids were up playing on the miniature golf course, bocci ball, ping pong etc. It was wonderful to sit on the porch reading a book (drinking my coffee) and watching my kids play with the other children. We also enjoyed joining them at the games. The lake had lots to offer as well , fishing, pedal boats, paddle boards and kayaking. Both kids love swimming out to the docks and fishing with their father. We loved the quietness of the lake and it was easy to go off and do sightseeing. We truly enjoyed our vacation and appreciated the owners attention to detail. She genuinely wants to give you an great Adirondack experience.

                                                                    Wonderful place for our family to unwind and reconnect. Highly recommended! Diane is such a gracious host; thoughtful and generous. She took time to drive the kids around property in her golf cart. They thought that was cool! We played ping pong and volleyball and shuffleboard. She has thought of everything to make your stay memorable!

                                                                    Dear Jennifer,

                                                                    Thank you so much for the review. It was a pleasure to have you and your family stay with me. I really enjoyed watching your family playing on MY NEW 9 HOLE ADIRONDACK MINIATURE GOLF COURSE, from early in the morning to late at night. Also my recreation barn and out on the lake using the paddle boards, kayaks, canoes, and rafts. Nice to see the kids get away from the electronics and back to nature, playing gameboards, and sitting by the campfire. Can not wait till you come and visit again.

                                                                    Excellent quite vacation spot with manicured grounds and extremely clean facilities.

                                                                    Romuald K.

                                                                    The owner of Bear Country Lodge, Diane Daly, was very accommodating and polite. Our family was so happy to get some peace and quite for a change. The property Bear Country Lodge on Harrisburg Lake is unique and should not be overlooked for a family vacation. The kids will love it especially the boating and fishing along with the miniature golf course. The Tepee is a hang out spot for the kids along with the game room inside the rec hall. The ping pong table provides great activity rain or shine, day or night. As parents, it's nice to get away from the kids too, as they are preoccupied by all the available activities and give you a chance to chill. Hope to see you next year Diane, the kids love you.

I enjoyed watching your children play on my new 9 hole Adirondack theme miniature golf course, play in the tipi, enjoy the shuffleboard, bocce ball courts, and the recreation hall, along with watching them paddleboard, canoe, kayak and fish on the lake, also enjoyed have smores with them at your private campfire. Hope to see you again soon..

                                                                    Fun and Relaxing

                                                                    John F.

                                                                    Get away from it all!

                                                                    Crystal H.

                                                                    Bear Country Lodge is unique in its ability to allow you to unplug and unwind. I had a great feeling about our trip after booking and speaking with Diane, and that feeling was reinforced again and again throughout our stay. Diane has a passion for her lodge, for nature, and for hospitality, which makes your stay that much more memorable.

                                                                    Comfortable and beautiful accommodations were provided, including sleeping room for six, two full bathrooms, and a large, well-stocked kitchen. We spent practically every day at Harrisburg Lake; fishing, swimming, boating, or just taking in the beautiful scenery. The grounds have plenty to offer too - nets for badminton and volleyball, a tetherball, and lawn games. There's also a wonderful little barn that is actually a game room, offering a ping pong table and various board games.

                                                                    Aside from the ability to unplug, what we liked best about the experience was the freedom and independence it provided our child guests (7 and 9). The caliber of our fellow guests and the proximity of the chalets allowed the kids to roam freely and make new friends, and to play like we did when we were children.

                                                                    The location boasts such natural beauty, but if you are looking for additional adventure, Diane has some great recommendations/suggestions. We explored the natural caves, which were amazing and well worth the trip. Two of us even took advantage of the proximity of Montreal, and had an international day trip.

                                                                    This was our first annual family vacation, and one that we hope to repeat for many years to come!
