    My husband and I chose Bear Creek Lodge for: location, value, outdoor/indoor option, and the personal/professionalism of the owners. We wanted a location that would be convenient for our guests but also provide us with a beautiful, natural outdoor location away from the noises of the city. The value was wonderful for our needs. At the time of our contract signing in 2013, Bear Creek offered: catering up to 100 people, venue, clean-up, alcohol service, linens, and a night stay for bride/groom for under $4,400. (The alcohol service was optional at a fixed cost) This amount included an 18% gratuity and 8.7% tax which was stated clearly in our contract. We found the owners very friendly and accommodating. Our guests were very impressed with how beautiful the grounds were and how relaxing the indoor reception area was. I highly recommend Bear Creek Lodge.

    Great Value and even Greater Memories.

    My wife and I had the best wedding imaginable here at Bear Creek Lodge on Mt. Spokane. Sam, the owner, is a great man with many duties and responsibilities surrounding his establishment. I do not agree at all with the other reviews on this website. He offered us an affordable wedding in August 2013 with flexibility a few hours beforehand to setup our own handmade decorations. The reception and dinner was amazing and every guest, around 75 people, commented on how great the food was. Our summer wedding here is one of the highlights of our lives. We couldn't have asked for more. The ceremony was something my wife and I have always looked back at as being truly amazing. The courtyard area where the ceremony takes place is fantastic with flower beds on the side, green grass, and a wedding alter that suited it all very well. We escaped the summer heat of Spokane in early August, being just a short drive up the mountain, to find ourselves comfortable with temperatures in the 70's. Come up to the lodge and meet Sam and to see the venue in person. You will not find anything better for the money.

    Wonderful Rustic Memories

    Let's be honest here. I originally wanted a backyard BBQ but my wife wouldn't hear it! XD Also, the invite list slowly grew from the dozen immediate family to over 100+... and we needed a place for the out of town family to stay (about a third). This was the perfect venue because there was no need to drive from hotel rooms to the venue; everyone was right there ready to go!

    Sam and his team did all the catering decor and coordinating, and everything turned out AMAZING! The surrounding environment was great; trees were starting to turn color, the weather was fair and there plenty of shade from the sun. We took tons of pictures outside. Ended up eating drinking and dancing the night away. Groomsmen/bridesmaids didn't need designated drivers, we had rooms! Also in hindsight, I'm glad we didn't have hard alcohol at the party. With that many people there's AT LEAST one person that gets out of control with the hard stuff; leave that drama for the bachelor/bachelorette parties.

    Thanks again for the good times!
