  • This venue was everything we could've ever asked for. Aesthetically, it is stunning - our ceremony was on a beautiful patio overlooking the lake, and the reception was in the barn that keeps its rustic charm while having modern amenities (heat pumps in particular, to keep warm on cold autumn nights or cool for summer weddings!). Our bridal party stayed at the inn for the weekend and they have not stopped raving about the stay. Each room is unique and comfortable, and the included breakfast is amazing. The best part of the experience was the team. We had to postpone our wedding due to Covid and they could not have been more kind and understanding, not only helping us find a new date but in fact opening up their wedding season earlier than usual. The owners, Brian and Julie, have done a superb job at making you feel at home while at the Inn. It's no surprise that in some of our other visits, there have been numerous couples visiting who had previously married there, as they truly make i... Read more

  • We had the wedding of our dreams and it was all made possible by the team at Bear Mountain Inn. From the time we arrived to the time we said goodbye we were treated like family and felt right at home at BMI. The breakfast provided was FANTASTIC, the grounds are gorgeous, and the rooms are cozy. We look forward to visiting again and are so very thankful for Brian, Julie, Cassie, Josh and the entire staff at Bear Mountain Inn for their hard work and kindness.

    Thank you so much for your kind review Mariah. We loved hosting you and Eliot for your very special wedding weekend. When you booked with us sight unseen, we were delighted and thrilled that you felt right at home here. It’s our goal to make it a home away from home for you, and it’s very fulfilling for our entire staff to read such positive remarks. Thank you for taking the time to write and share your experience, and we can’t wait to have you back again.

  • Bear Mountain Inn will continue to be one of our most favorite places. We knew during our 1st visit that BMI was the perfect place for us to get married. We loved the fact it was pet friendly, had gorgeous decor and that our friends and family were able to stay on site. Yes the property wowed us but the service and the team at Bear Mountain Inn are EXCEPTIONAL. Julie, Brian & Cassie connected with us several times this year to coordinate our wedding during a very tough time. We had to alter plans and they were so accommodating to our needs and very understanding. They all are so friendly and so on point with details and amazing customer service. Our guests also raved about the rooms, the breakfast and the experience at BMI. We all are “lifers” at BMI and can’t wait to visit at least once a year and make more great memories. Eric and I can’t thank Julie, Brian & Cassie enough for making our dream wedding come true! We highly recommend Bear Mountain Inn to other couples!

    Hi Amanda, thank you so much for taking the time to share your wedding weekend experience with us. You truly made our season by your thoughtful and thorough review, and words can’t express how much we appreciate it. We loved hosting your closest friends and family for your wedding and can't wait to have you and Eric back at the inn for many years to come, as "lifers"!

  • Bear Mountain Inn is such a special place. My husband and I were lucky enough to have a wedding here on October 10th and it can only be described as magical. Cassie, Julie, and Brian became fast friends and we look forward to staying in touch for many years to come. Our guests said it was the most beautiful venue they’ve ever been to and the experience is luxurious. No detail is spared! The rooms are incredibly comfortable and lavish. The barn is gorgeous with chandelier details and a perfect layout for dinner and dancing. The grounds are peaceful and we even heard the most beautiful bird calls during our vows. It’s an experience we’ll cherish forever. Their team of vendors is five stars and includes the best that Maine has to offer. We would book them again in a heartbeat and are already planning a weekend trip back!

    Hi Emily, thank you so much for the kind words, and taking the time to share your experience and photos! Your intimate wedding was so special because it was our first Zoom Wedding, and allowed for all your loved ones to join you. I know that it was also very special for your new mother-in-law to also be a part of the big day. Reading reviews like your’s makes our efforts so worthwhile and fulfilling for all of us. The most fulfilling part is meeting great people like you, and being a part of our wedding family. We can’t wait to have you back for another visit!

  • If you are lucky enough to have found this magical, gem of a place know that you will be taken care of, listened to, and most importantly, you will have the wedding day of your dreams. Julie & Brian are two of the loveliest, hardest-working humans we have ever met. From the moment you step on the property at Bear Mountain Inn you can feel the immense amount of love they pour into every minute detail. Cassie - our wedding coordinator - was a DREAM, handling everything leading up to our wedding, to the big day itself, making everything seamless. I was a COVID bride who had intentions of having a 200 person wedding which eventually turned into an intimate 40 something person celebration. Wedding planning is stressful enough, so when the pandemic hit I had all the questions every other Bride had - what will happen to our day? Will this still be happening? How will our venue react and how do we navigate from here? It took one phone call with Julie & Brian to realize we had hit the jackpot. ... Read more

    Hi Brianna, Thank you so much for the touching and thoughtful review. We can’t tell you how much we appreciate you taking the time to share your experience. What started to be a 200 person event resulted in an intimate wedding that was one of the most beautiful one’s that we have had here. You and Chris were such a joy to work with and you both feel like family to us.

  • Bear Mountain Inn was the only venue that my husband and I looked at, and from the moment we saw it we knew it was the perfect venue for us! The views are stunning, and the inn has so much charm. It was also a huge plus for us that they are dog friendly! Planning a wedding during the pandemic was so difficult to say the least, but Brian, Julie, and Cassie were so wonderful to work with, and reassured us constantly that they would do everything in their power to make our day perfect! Our wedding day was absolutely perfect in every way, and we have Bear Mountain Inn to thank for that!

    Hi Christine, thank you for the amazing review! We really appreciate you taking the time to share your experience. We were so honored and flattered to learn that you we were the only venue you looked at, and that it was perfect for you and Kurt. We loved hosting your closest friends and family, and had a wonderful time hosting your wedding weekend. You were one of our easiest couples to work with, by far...we can't wait to have you back!

  • Bear Mountain Inn is the most amazing venue! The owners are incredible, the Inn is beautiful, and their wedding coordinator is so great to work with! You won’t be disappointed choosing to get married here! My husband and I had the most amazing wedding here and will cherish the memories for the rest of our lives! Our guests still keep talking about how amazing the Venue was! It rained during our ceremony time, so we had our ceremony in the Barn and it was just perfect! Having that beautiful Barn as a back up for when it rains is really amazing. It’s a great indoor ceremony spot!

    Thank you Shannon for the wonderful review! Your wedding was the first we hosted in 2020. It was an intimate one with your closest friends and family which made it a truly special weekend. Like they say, rain during your ceremony brings good luck, symbolizing fertility and cleansing. It was so beautiful having it in the barn. We will always remember it fondly, and looking forward to seeing you and Nick as your family grows.

  • I don't have all of the words to truly describe how magical it was to be married at Bear Mountain Inn. Brian and Julie are some of the warmest, friendliest, inviting people I have ever met and it has been such a pleasure working with them. They made all of our family and friends that stayed there feel like they were at home. 2 months later and the thing that people are still talking about is how much they loved Brian and Julie and they can't wait to go back and visit them (and their pups). They have put so much work into this venue, pictures don't even begin to do it justice. I kind of want to move in (it is that great). Not only is it one of the most stunning Inn's I have ever seen, this place is cozy, relaxing and everything you would want a wedding venue/getaway spot to be. I can't say enough good things about this place. Do yourself a favor and book a tour and then immediately book this place as your wedding venue. We just adore you, Brian and Julie! We can't wait to come back and ... Read more

We were honored to be a part of such a special and important event in your lives. You and Colby are one of the sweetest couples we have ever met, and we can't wait to have you back for another stay with us!

  • This is a absolutely wonderful venue owned and operated by a absolutely wonderful team. Brian and Julie (the owners) were friendly, on hands, and beyond helpful in the planning of our wedding. Cassie (wedding coordinator) patiently answered all our crazy questions, walked us through planning our big day and made the big day completely relaxing for us and the family we had staying at the Inn. Accommodations are beautiful, the staff is friendly and fun. Our number one goal for our wedding was to create an atmosphere that felt like an extension of our home to our family and friends. From the moment we toured the property with Brian, Julie and Cassie right up to over a month after the wedding - it was been nothing but just that! We honestly can't wait to go back again and again.

  • Bear Mountain Inn was the absolutely best decision we made when it came to our wedding day. The entire venue is BEAUTIFUL. The outdoor space is the perfect backdrop for the wedding pictures (that speaks for itself) - a total fairytale setting. The barn is equally as beautiful. My friends and family could not stop talking about all the elegant details. The venue is beautiful, but that is not even the best part. When you book Bear Mountain Inn as a wedding venue, you are booking not just a wedding venue but a once in a lifetime experience. You get to spend a weekend (not just your wedding day) with your friends and family in the most beautiful and relaxing location you can imagine. How often do you get to spend a weekend with all your family and best friends in the same place? Julie and Brian (owners of the Inn) and the entire crew at Bear Mountain Inn truly make you feel like you are staying in a home away from home. I am still dreaming about the delicious homemade breakfast we enjo... Read more

    Thank you for the glowing review Ashley! You used the word beautiful to describe the venue, and we can honestly say that your wedding was one of the most beautiful weddings we have hosted to date. We can’t tell you how much it means to us that you took the time to share your experience. We loved hosting your friends and family for the weekend, and we are so happy to read that we achieved our goal of making it a home away from home. We hope to have you and Eric back for a stay soon!

  • Bear Mountain Inn was recommended to us by a family friend. When we made contact, we were immediately struck by Cassie’s energy. During our visit, Brian’s and Julie’s enthusiasm was intoxicating. They gave us a tour, even though every single room was torn apart (many down to beams), but we were blown away by their warmth, and vision for each room. From their vision boards it was obvious that the Bear Mountain Inn was going to be spectacular- and we enjoyed being there so much that we didn’t want to leave, even though there was nowhere for us to stay! Bear Mountain Inn brought together all the elements we love- from the water, to the woods, the mountains and the glorious rustic chic decor. When it came down to the final decision, the competition was no match for the opportunity for us to stay at such a beautiful venue for a full weekend with wonderful people. After booking so early (nearly two years out!) we still found that at every contact point BMI was always ready and av... Read more

  • Where to begin? Bear Mountain Inn was a picture perfect place for our wedding. I knew I wanted our wedding to be in a barn and had looked at a few other venues before visiting Bear Mountain. There are many beautiful barns in Maine, but none with the overall package that Bear Mountain provides. From the moment I drove onto the property I knew this was the place. Seeing the chandeliers in the barn, touring the inn, and meeting the owners just sealed the deal. I was sold in 15 minutes, how could I say no to this gorgeous property? The property is a perfect mixture of rustic, modern, and elegant. Along the way, Cassie, the wedding coordinator, went above and beyond to answer all my planning questions. Julie and Brian treated everyone like family and were present the whole weekend to make sure everything went perfectly. Our wedding was literally a dream come true and it all has to do with Bear Mountain Inn. We had the whole property for 2 nights which made it incredible to have our ... Read more

  • Where do I even begin with how AMAZING this venue was! We loved how personal and special we were made to feel from the first viewing right through to the follow up after our wedding. The owners, Brian and Julie are some of the nicest and most genuine people you will ever meet and really take the time to get to know you, not only you as the bride and groom but all of your guests who are staying the weekend with you. Cassie, the wedding coordinator, was awesome to work with! She is thorough, prompt with responses to questions and extremely organized, she was never more then a quick email away. All 3 of them were nothing but extremely helpful during our wedding weekend, especially the day of, they are right there with anything you need. The property itself, GORGEOUS! The Inn is completely renovated and let me tell you they did not miss a detail, its modern but still has that cozy feel you want at a bed and breakfast.
