A Bear Butler

We were greeted by this fellow on Sunday in Coolfont. We were on a studio tour near Berkeley Springs, West Virginia.


  1. I need one of those to hang out in my kitchen.

  2. Can't tell from the picture if he is animated by someone inside. I'm just using my imagination.

  3. A great find♪ I'm partial to bear shots!

  4. THAT'S what I need in the foyer of our B&B. Would it scare someone walking out of their room in the middle of the night? Maybe....

  5. Colleen, it was not animated.
    Rebecca, the owner admits that it has scared her a few times! She was used to it upstairs but after she moved it to the dining room, she'd glimpse it out of the corner of her eye and think someone had gotten in the house.
