  • What to say... working with the BlackBear was one of the easiest things I personally had done. At first we met with the Food and Beverage Director/Event Coordinator and we did not get the best of feeling. Some turnover happened and what we ended up with was the greatest day we could ask for. Angela the new F&B Director / Event Coordinator was a god send. She went over every detail, literally no stone was left unturned. Fast forward many months and the big day happened. The Event was a huge success even though my groom was lost, Tracy the owner quickly found him. The food was excellent and all of the staff were perfect. If anyone were to ask where to hold any event I would without hesitation regimens the BlackBear Inn. Tracy and Angela are a great team, they want every event to be what you picture, they are calm and very accommodating. I promise you will not be disappointed!

  • Angela, Jana and Tracy were all amazing to work with. We started out with one vision, and our wedding quickly grew into a larger celebration and Angela was there every step of the way to help us work our way through the decisions. Even when the stress was almost to the top, she took care of everything and told us to just enjoy our day. The staff at the Black Bear Inn were all excellent! From the chef, to servers, front desk and housekeeping, they were all great! I would highly recommend the Black Bear Inn for any event.

  • Angela Cocuzza helped us with the planning and arrangements for a 90th birthday party. We were very pleased with the room configuration and the Inn's flexibility in providing additional space the prior day as a gathering spot for participants who traveled from other states.

  • We had a great experience. The team at the Black Bear Inn were awesome. We had so many questions and they managed to answer all of them. They were accommodating and worked with us through every step. They even suggested DJ vendors for us and added things to our menu choices. They really know what they are doing and everyone was on the same page every step of the way. The woman who sets up the dining room even made last minute centerpieces because I didn't make enough. We are very thankful for their help and dealing with our mounting questions day of and with our crazy families.

  • This is the first conference (not a wedding) we've held at the Black Bear Inn. The staff was terrific from the start of planning - very accommodating and responsive when there were little "glitches" during the program. Thank You!

  • Our wedding at Black Bear Inn was amazing. The staff went above and beyond to ensure we had a great time, even throwing a few surprises our way to enhance our Harry Potter theme (for example, they wore HP costumes). They also provided the sweetest housewarming gift after the wedding. The only complaint I have has to do with how I was billed for the hotel rooms. I had asked to check in to two suites which I had reserved but was actually checked into a suite and a room. My husband didn't realize his room was supposed to be a suite. He ended up sleeping at our home that night so that his groomsman could have a bed since the room they were given only had one bed. I didn't hear about this until after the wedding, and when I asked for it to be resolved after the fact was told that I still had to be charged for the suites because they had them reserved that day and didn't realize we weren't planning to use them. We WERE planning to use them--we asked for them--we weren't given them. Of course... Read more
