Every bride wants their wedding day to be perfect, and I am fortunate enough to be able to say that it was even better than I could ever have imagined! At Bear Tree's venue is right on 1st Connecticut Lake which is beautiful in it's own right. We were fortunate enough to have perfect weather...something completely out of everyone's control. If you're looking for a private location ( I didn't want to get married somewhere that random people could walk by and stare) with a venue that is very prompt at responding to questions/concerns and willing to do what has to be done to make your day perfect, this is the right choice! As other reviews have mentioned, Chantal really makes the process as pain free as possible, to the point that even friends and family commented ahead of time that I didn't seem one bit anxious, concerned worried, etc. She kept everyone in line for the ceremony and helped make sure the reception went the way we envisioned. All the people who work At Bear Tree know each other and work well together. The food was amazing. The atmosphere was great. We spent the whole weekend at the venue and the cabins were clean and comfortable and the grounds were fun-fire pit, games and kayaks. It was exactly what I was looking for, thanks again for everything, At Bear Tree!Sent on 09/30/2016

At Bear Tree, was my dream venue , and my dream wedding. Everything I had pictured I was able to have at Bear Tree. I did not have to make a single sacrifice!! Chatal, the Event Coordinator, found a way to make EVERYTHING that I wanted/ needed t make my day special happen. She never said "NO" if there was something that hadn't been tried at the venue before, she found way t try and made it happen. My mother was also heavily involved in the Pre Party and Post party planning for our Wedding WEEKEND as it turned out, and Chatal always responded to my anxious, nervous, stressful Mom with a graceful patience, and fund that every one of her neurotic needs were met too. Essentially, Chantal is what makes a wedding at Bear Tree so do able. The scenery and the grounds make it so easy to fall in love with, for the couple and the guests- But Chantal makes the entire process of planning your dream wedding at the beautiful location, a reality. I have ZERO regrets! I want an anniversary party back here every year!Sent on 09/28/2015

Bear Tree hosted our wedding back in July 2014. We had a very large wedding of 250 people; however, Bear Tree was able to manage this with a sense of ease. They were very accommodating and flexible. Everything went above and beyond what we could have ever expected. The food was cooked perfectly - from the hors d'oeuvres to the main course. Everyone at Bear Tree treated us like family. It was truly a spectacular day and I would highly recommend using Bear Tree for any event or staying in their amazing lodging choices.Sent on 02/02/2015
