Camp Bournedale and it's staff made our wedding day perfect! The venue itself is great, with a scenic ceremony space by Herring Pond and the hall directly next to it with a great wrap-around deck for cocktail hour, our guests were very impressed. Darin took care of all our questions and concerns throughout the planning and made sure our day was as relaxing and carefree as possible. The staff were all very courteous and helpful, all of our guests were treated to rides around the campground in addition to boat rides during cocktail hour. The food was great and the bonfire after the reception was a perfect ending to the night. The on-site houses and cabins were a great way to keep the party going after the reception and provided a place for our guests to crash without worrying about driving home. We highly recommend Bournedale to anyone looking to have a laid-back wedding on the Cape!
We have nothing but wonderful things to say about Darin and his team at Bournedale. Darin was communicative throughout the planning process and gave us multiple tours of the facilities. He also had great advice on room set up and was present on the day of our wedding to make sure everything ran smoothly. We didn't have a wedding planner, and we honestly didn't need one given Darin's knowledge and advice on local vendors that we could use. The facility itself is GORGEOUS. Having your ceremony in front of a lake is hard to beat, and the combination of indoor/outdoor reception space was perfect for letting people dance and socialize. Also - boat rides??! Unexpected and amazing post ceremony perk. And after all that, it ended up being far less expensive than many of the other options we looked out, even including our open bar tab. We had the perfect wedding - thank you so much Bournedale!
It was the best day of our lives and everybody contributed to make it go smoothly! Darin made it easy on me and responded very promptly to my emails regarding various questions! The property is beautiful and I truely dont have a single negative thing to say. The guests gave amazing feedback with many of them saying it was the greatest wedding they've ever attended
Theres a reason they are booked for the next 2 years!
We decided on Bournedale Function Facility a year and a half before our wedding. My fiancé and I went with my dad the first time with plans to go to a different place the following day with both sets of parents. My family grew up camping and staying on a lake so as soon I stepped out of the car and was warmly greeted by Darin, the coordinator, I felt at home. My now husband and I decided early on in the planning process that we wanted a laid back, party atmosphere. Bournedale allowed for us to host our own after party with a big bonfire and let everyone stay in the cabins and houses. Immediately after visiting the other venue with both families the following day we decided we all needed to drive to bournedale to see it. We were sold, and couldn't be happier throughout the process. Darin, the coordinator was responsive, flexible, and genuine. He helped us create our own menu to fit our budget and answered any questions we had. His staff who worked the night of our wedding were fantastic as well - from Robin, the ceremony coordinator to the people who stayed all night for the after party - our guests could not get over how helpful, professional, and happy everyone was. We also had DIY centerpieces which they set up for us....Everyone raved about the food (get the mashed potato bar), the venue and the after party. Out of 150 guests, 100 spent the night. We ordered sandwiches from BJs and got a keg and everything was set up for us at the end of the wedding. I was so relaxed throughout the wedding because Darin and the staff took care of everything. My husband and I had the best night of our lives and we loved the fact that brunch was provided the next day so that we could relive the memories with all of our guests.
The Bournedale Function Facility has Cape Cod charm combined with the natural elegance of being lake side, and laid back vacation feel for the couple that wants it all for a shockingly affordable price. I never thought I would be able to afford such an unforgettable venue for our wedding but Darin, Arnie and their team made it all possible. We chose the full overnight package, which I highly recommend, we had houses to get ready in (and drink mimosas), a beautiful ceremony under the trees with the lake as our back drop, cocktail hour on the deck with pontoon boat giving rides around the lake, amazing food, a bonfire and after party for the overnight guests, cabins and houses for our guests to sleep and breakfast in the morning!! There is no one else that offers what they offer, you have the ENTIRE venue to yourself and no one is pushing you out the door at a certain time, people are still talking about how fantastic the venue was. Darin made everything so easy for us, he is thorough, genuine and so calm and easy to work with, which is a breath of fresh air when you are planning a wedding. The only tough part of the overnight package is organizing sleeping arrangements...tell one of your bridesmaids to do it ;)
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.
