  • 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

  • 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.

  • Wow! Wow! Wow! That’s what every single one of my friends and family members had to say about Bear Mountain Inn. Julie and Brian truly make you feel like your at home and Cassie is there every step of the way to make sure your day is perfect! I can’t recommend this venue and all the amazing people there enough! Thank you all ♥️

  • 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

    Thank you Kiira! What an amazing and thoughtful review. Reading it literally brought tears of joy. Our beautiful couples like you and Gordon is what makes this such an awesome profession for us! We can’t wait to have you and Gordon back to stay — your home away from home.😊💕

  • 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. My husband and I stayed 5 nights with our Golden Retriever and all 3 ... Read more

  • If you're looking for a rustic barn wedding venue (with a beautiful water view!), where you can spend your entire wedding weekend surrounded by those you love most, than look no further than the Bear Mountain Inn. We cannot say enough positive things in this posting to convey our appreciation for all that Julie and Brian (the owners) and Cassie (their Wedding Coordinator) did to make our wedding weekend simply perfect. Their thoughtfulness, responsiveness and attention to detail helped us to enjoy our wedding planning process from start to finish. The best part about working with Julie, Brian and Cassie is that they make every single planning moment fun and memorable. They make you feel like your wedding is the only wedding they are working on and while you are there for your wedding weekend they make you feel like the Bear Mountain Inn is your home away from home. It was clear that all of our guests felt like our wedding was an experience, not just an event. Looking back on our wed... Read more

  • My little brother got married here on 8/17/19. This venue is outstanding if you, your friends or family are looking for a wedding venue or just a weekend get away in the mountains. Julie & Brian are the owners and live on site. They are down to earth friendly and caring people that are always offering to help with even the smallest things. Their staff is amazing as well. Danni & Jamie are two of the bar tenders that I met during my stay. These ladies rock, and add to the fun filled event or weekend that you stay. Bottom line when your stay is over you will think the staff and Julie and Brian should be leaving with you, like they were just guests as well. The grounds around the Inn are beautiful. Professionally maintained and when maintenance is needed it is quick and at a reasonable hour. There is also, swimming, fishing, kayaking, canoeing, and hiking trails on the property along and in bear lake. There is plenty of room for a wedding party to stay at the venue, plus some family as we... Read more

  • Brian, Julie, Cassie, and the entire Bear Mountain Inn (BMI) crew are all incredible! First of all, the inn itself is one of the nicest places to stay in western Maine. The renovated rooms are clean and comfortable. The breakfast and amenities are top notch. We filled practically every open bed in the inn the weekend of our wedding, and they were able to provide the service and care as if there were only a handful of people staying. Second, the property is amazing with beautiful views, access to the lake, multiple fire pits, and plenty of open space to play games. The trails on the property are isolated and offer a wonderfully quick sense of escape. The updated barn has efficient heat pumps and a new level floor, yet it still feels rusticly classic. Third, the organization of our wedding was magical. Nearly everything was taken care of for us which allowed us to spend the maximum amount of time with our guests. The tables and table settings were all set up and taken down for us. We o... Read more

  • Just over a year ago my fiancé and I set out to find a venue that allowed us to achieve our dream wedding. Our goals were to create a space where two families could become one, lifelong memories would be made and the best parts of us as a couple, as individuals and through our families - could shine through. Bear Mountain Inn did not disappoint! Brian and Julie have created a true heaven on earth. From the passion they have poured into every detail, to the team they have built, to the overall feeling of pure joy they have painted every inch of that property with - this is hands down the best wedding venue we could have possibly selected. I feel confident that we could have not found a more perfect place - even if we had built it ourselves. To this day, I am continuously receiving calls, texts and Facebook posts from our friends and family raving about the venue and the team. I will never be able to thank Brian, Julie, Cassie and team enough for creating a space where dreams do c... Read more

    Kristin and Roger, our hearts are filled with joy after reading your kind and thoughtful review about you experience at the Bear Mountain Inn. Reading notes like this makes our work at BMI incredibly fulfilling. It was so much fun having you, Roger and your friends and family here and seeing everyone enjoy each other’s company and the property. You all feel like extended family to us, and we would love to have you back soon. We would also love to visit you sometime in Greenville, SC for some southern hospitality!

  • The BMI delivered an exceptional experience from the first time we stepped onto the property until the day we departed after our daughters’ beautiful wedding weekend. We felt cared for by Julie, Brian, and Cassie throughout the entire process. The property is visually stunning, and the feeling that you get when you stay is a sense of peace and belonging. The only con is when you have to say goodbye. Cheers to the BMI family!

  • The Bear Mountain Inn was our dream venue for our wedding. We fell in love with the view of the pond, the beautiful barn, the quaint but modern inn... but what made our special day and weekend even that more special and memorable was Julie and Brian (the owners) and Cassie (the wedding coordinator). They were there every step of the way to make sure that everything went off without a hitch. We didn’t have to worry about a thing. Our guests still talk about how beautiful the venue was and that the drive out to Waterford was well worth it. We definitely recommend the Bear Mountain Inn and plan to come back to celebrate anniversaries and just to visit!

  • How do I even put into words how much I love Bear Mountian Inn. Me and my husband just had our Vow Renewal this past weekend there and it was absolutely magical! The Inn has everything you could possibly need! Brian and Julie who own the Inn are fantastic! They truly make you feel like a part of the family. They are so attentive and caring! Cassie is truly a wedding God sent! She helped me every step of the way with any questions or concerns I had. She truly listened to me and helped me plan the wedding of my dreams! If you are looking for a venue that will take your guest and familys breath away this is the place to be! The rooms were top hand the most beautiful rooms we had ever seen. Our friends and family could not stop talking about how much they loved it and how beautiful they were! The Breakfast was amazing and delicious! Just what you need after full night of dancing! Me and my husband are already talking about how much we cant wait to go back and visit! There is not a SI... Read more
