Our storied local history

When you stay at the Three Bear Inn, you're immersing yourself in local history. Our inn has been in business since the 1900s, and the property itself has existed for over 222 years. We're the oldest operating business in Cortland County. Originally called the Hotel Marathon, the owners renamed the inn in the early 1900s when they aired out three bearskins stored in the attic on the front porch. The name the Three Bears Inn has stuck ever since.
