We could not have asked for a more perfect wedding day. The location is perfect and the staff is better. We wanted to have a location that all our friends and family could come to and relax and enjoy themselves and that is just what we got. For all that was included the price was reasonable, the food was delicious and everything was beautiful. We can't thank the staff enough from all the meetings and questions we had along the way and the laid back but professionalism on the wedding day. We want to renew our vows, have family reunions and attend other events here in the future! Thank you!
We knew Bournedale Function Facility was the venue for us the minute we stepped foot on the property and met Darin. Set on a beautiful deep water lake our intimate outdoor ceremony and photos on the beach and dock were only the beginning to a perfect evening. Our guests especially loved the outdoor reception, bar boat and post-reception campfire on the beach. Because our guests could stay over night with us at Camp Bournedale we were able to enjoy an extended stress-free celebration where a good time was had by all. They are still raving about our wedding. I can't say enough for Darin and his staff. The parking attendants, servers, chef, bartenders, housekeepers all were were so genuinely friendly and attentive and were on hand for any needs that arose. The food, including breakfast the next morning, was amazing and we had opportunity to meet Arnie, the kind and caring owner. Having your wedding at Bournedale Function Facilitiy feels like you are hosting your wedding in your own back yard - except with amazing views and without the stress. Our wedding was truly memorable at Bournedale Function Facility and we recommend this venue in the highest regard.
The Bournedale Function Facility was an absolutely perfect venue for our wedding. The grounds are gorgeous and well taken care of. The staff is SUPER helpful and Darin was always available to answer any (sometimes silly) questions that we had. The sunset pontoon ride was amazing- we got gorgeous photos and got to spend a couple of minutes just the two of us - which was very hard to come by! We have no complaints and wish we could do it all over again. Everyone raved after the wedding that it was the best wedding they had ever been to!
Darin and all of the staff at Bournedale could not have been nicer, They were all more than accommodating to mu husband and I and all of our guests. It was a absolutely perfect day from start to finish. We could not have asked for a better venue to start our lives together. We highly recommend Bournedale Function Facilities.
Great venue.. the wedding was perfect and they helped out with everything and more before i even needed to do it! Perfect place for a weekend wedding!
Where to do I begin? The customer service at Bournedale is 5 stars and beyond! From working with Darin, to meeting the owner and the staff - everyone is responsive, helpful and there to serve you and make everything work out!! The setting is gorgeous and the food is amazing! Everyone is still commenting on the food, setting and event! I would highly recommend choosing Camp Bournedale for any type of function. You will have an amazing time as the host and not even have to worry about anything as they will take care of it all for you! Thank you again to everyone that works there for an amazing wedding weekend! I want to do it again in ten years!!
I had the pleasure to entertain there. We have worked many function halls, however this place is on the top of our charts. Would recommend to anyone. Trust worthy as well. I had left jewelry there and they recovered and got it back to me. I hope i have the opportunity to come back. Thank you.
We fell in love with the venue at first sight. It isn't your typical ceremony/reception hall. Yes it is known also as Camp Bournedale, but do not let that make you count this place out. The food, customer service, and features rival anything you would get at another venue. If you have any doubts, check the place out when it is set up for a wedding. Darin, the venue coordinator is fantastic. He is professional, flexible very responsive and accommodating. We added an open bar the day before our event and he was able to make it happen. We had two vegetarians and one gluten free menu needed no problem. The food was fantastic. There are 3 hot passed appetizers plus a cheese/cracker/fruit station. For dinner there is a salad station and buffet. You can have other stations as well. We got nothing but complements on the food. It is on a pond so your guest can tour the pontoon boat...you yourself can even have a unique entrance (like i did) and enter on the boat. This was the first time any bride did it but Darin was able to get me on the boat at a different location so they guest wouldn't see me nor would I be waiting on the boat a half hour before. They have golf carts so you guest can be driven right to the location and my bridal party was even picked up so they didn't have to walk. But my favorite part of this venue...you can stay overnight right there and there is a bon fire. There are options for either house or cabins. There are 6 fully furnished houses which can hold up to 40 people. The cabins have cots which you need to bring bedding for but are heated have showers and bathrooms in there. None of our guests had to stay in cabins. We were able to bring our own alcohol to the bonfire which was great since my brother in law brought home made beer and wine. Check out Bournedale Function Facility you will not regret it and you will have a magical unique day.
FOOD WAS THE BEST PART! I just got married there on September 21st and couldn't be happier! We had the rehearsal ceremony and dinner there the Friday night before. We had water activities during Saturday day and the ceremony and wedding Saturday evening. We were a little nervous about not having a food tasting before the big day but we were sooo happy with the food! A couple days before the wedding we added on a mashed potato bar, we and our guests were so happy we did! We had turkey and prime rib for dinner (station style) everything tasted awesome! We had 130 guests and I thought that many people fit perfectly in the room! Everyone was raving about the food! We just got our pictures back and I couldn't be happier! I would definitely recommend Bournedale (and the mashed potato bar) to all my friends!
My husband, Chris, and I just had our wedding at Bournedale this past Saturday, 9/14. To say that it was an unforgettable night is an understatement. The whole night went on without the slightly hiccup thanks to the Bournedale Staff.
Darin was friendly, professional, and accommodating throughout the entire planning process. He was very responsive to my calls and emails and made the process easy. The day of the wedding Darin was there and made sure the ceremony and the reception went according to plan. Chris and I didn’t have to worry about a thing which was nice because we actually got to enjoy our big day! The food was delicious! Chef Ron and his cooking staff did a great job and made sure that there was plenty for everyone.
The guests could not stop raving about the food and how wonderful the entire staff was the whole night. Even during the camp fire after the reception, Steve was around to drive people back to their cabins and everyone enjoyed the ride!
I cannot thank the Bournedale staff enough for making mine and Chris’ big day one of the best days of our lives!
Perfect place to have a wedding, everyone was so nice and helpful! Darrin is the best! They are so accommodating, we never heard the word no. I recommend this place to every bride.
Bournedale is an amazing place to have your wedding! The staff is friendly and accommodating and the grounds are beautiful and unique. Many of our guests asked "how did you find this place?". It's amazing to have a whole campground to yourself to accommodate you and your guests. The service is personalized and everyone there does their job with a smile. Some guests were hesitant about attending a wedding at a campground but once they arrived at Bournedale their opinions had changed. Bournedale is a gorgeous venue with water views, boat rides, overnight campfire and breakfast. You really can't beat it if you are looking for something more then just the traditional wedding venue. Thank you to Darin, Robbin and everyone else who made our wedding perfect!
We just had my daughter's wedding @ Bournedale. I must say when she first mentioned a "camp" I was a little nervous. It was PERFECT!!!! The ceremony,cocktail hour,reception,bonfire,housing and STAFF!!! Each one of the guest commented on what a wonderful time they had...the food was great ..the signature drink was delicious. The whole night went very smoothly..never had to worry about a thing. The whole experience @ Bournedale was wonderful....a weekend to remember!!!! Thank you Darin...
My husband and I were married at Bournedale 08.17.13 and we had the most magical day. We were a little nervous at first that this is a "camp" but Bournedale ended up being the first and only venue we viewed. Everything was perfect, the ceremony was the most beautiful thing I have ever seen and the rest of the night went off just as planned. Everyone was delightfully surprised by how delicious dinner was (Ron does a fantastic job) it is the farthest thing from wedding food you will ever have. Darin is the best person to work with to plan your wedding. He is quick with his responses but you should trust his instinct he does this all the time and he is usually right!! From the breathtaking view of the lake, to the peaceful privacy the grounds offer, Bournedale was perfect for us and we would recommend it again and again! Thank you!
We just had our wedding at Bournedale on 8.16.13 and it was the most beautiful, perfect, fantastic day of my life! As soon as we looked at Bournedale we knew it was the place for us, it's beautiful & unique, not just another "wedding factory" like so many around. Darin patiently answered all my emails over the year, always made me feel at ease, and was so laid back he made the entire wedding planning process so nice. I stayed overnight the day before the wedding with my bridesmaids which allowed me plenty of time to get ready and enjoy the day. The entire staff was so helpful and sweet, making sure everything was just how we wanted it, including our request for a raw bar. They hung lanterns, set up tables-everything. Throughout the night Darin made sure everything was going along on time, made sure my husband and I had food, and always made sure I felt like a bride! I was in awe when I saw how beautifully everything came together. Our guests are still raving about the food, the location, the quiet, private beauty of Bournedale Function Facility. The bartenders were also fantastic and made sure my husband and I always had our drink of choice. We had about 30 guests stay over for the bonfire and it was an absolute blast! Coolers were set up for us and people were taken by golf carts to their rooms. Breakfast the next day was fantastic as well! I can't say enough about Bournedale and the staff. I feel so lucky to have had the perfect wedding here, Bournedale truly exceeded our expectations, and I highly recommend having your wedding here, you will not be disappointed!
Recently I had my wedding at Bournedale Facility and I couldn’t have been more pleased. The friendly staff and owner were available at every turn. From the naturally beautiful pond, to the fresh/clean reception hall and the newly renovated houses for overnight stays, we were able to enjoy our wedding from start to finish! Darin was our main contact. He is a pro who has been doing weddings for years. I felt at ease knowing that any question or concern I had, he attended too. As for the guests, they enjoyed the pontoon boat ride on the 3 mile pond, wonderful oeuvres, and moist turkey + roast beef. (Thank you Ron!) We were able to party all night long on the lake with a fire, s'mores and music (Thanks Steve!). It was the perfect ending to a perfect day. We also had a wonderful breakfast buffet the following day. I cannot say enough about Bournedale and would recommend to anyone who wanted a beach feel of a wedding with ceremony, reception, caterer and overnight stay all in one place!
