About Bear Lake Reserve

Bear Lake Reserve is a country club wedding venue in Tuckasegee, North Carolina. Amidst the majestic Blue Ridge Mountains, this venue is surrounded by a mixture of tamed and wild nature. Offering generous views of Bear Creek Lake, it is an ideal wedding getaway for couples who want to experience the best of both a cultured ceremony and a rustic reception.

Facilities and Capacity

Bear Lake Reserve offers as much refinement as it does an experience close to nature. A number of ceremony and reception spaces are available, each one brimming with elegant and delightfully charming features.

Mill Pond Pavilion is a self-contained rural timber cottage where outdoor receptions of up to 75 guests can be hosted in the vicinity of several serene ponds. With its sheltered pavilion, located beside the main building, there is extra room for guests to breathe in the fresh air while toasting your marriage.

The Lake Club is a 14,000 square-foot location which is home to the Lakeview Wedding Lawn and Chef’s Reserve - each of these settings can host 100 guests respectively. The Lake Club is also where The Point is located, a space with room to accommodate up to 200 people. Each one exudes a distinctive atmosphere, with a combination of interior and exterior charm.

Depending on which site the couple opts for, white chairs and an elegant arch for the ceremony can be provided, while pristine white linens, flatware, sparkling glasses, and more can be laid out for the reception meal. Convenient get-ready rooms are also located on-site for your guests to make use of.

A beautiful venue throughout the year, it looks most picturesque in the Fall, with crunchy orange and brown leaves underfoot. Everyone can enjoy the outdoors by taking a scenic stroll throughout the vast resort, taking in all the sights on your significant day, including the many hiking trails and beautiful Bear Creek Park.

Services Offered

The main attraction at Bear Lake Reserve is certainly its innate beauty. However, the convenient services certainly adds to the appeal. With catering services offered at The Lake Club, bar service is also an option to avail of. Additionally, the venue’s staff can carry out setup and cleanup. They are also happy to work with outside vendors to coordinate your celebration appropriately.

Accommodation

The accommodation offered by Bear Lake Reserve features almost 30 different cottages and houses which can sleep anywhere between four and 14 people. These are suitable as romantic honeymoon suites for the newlyweds or as room for your guests to stay following the reception. Whether you opt for Whispering Falls Cottage, Woodland Court, or elsewhere, they offer relaxing retreats surrounded by nature’s peaceful embrace.

    The most breath taking experience of my lifetime.

    To call the experience my wife and I had at Bear Lake Reserve phenomenal, would be an understatement. Everything about Bear Lake was so far above our expectations its honestly hard to describe. The shear beauty of the venue, the pricing, the flexibility, the professionalism, their patience and understanding, their resourcefulness, the food, everything about it was incredible. We couldn't have made it happen if not for Kelsie Rich as well. What an amazing experience. If you are wondering if this is the right venue for you, look no further. IT IS!

    My wedding was a dream come true. I wanted to capture the beauty of western NC in the Fall and Bear Lake Reserve was the perfect venue. The service and the staff were excellent and very flexible in planning - most of my guests came up to me to tell me how professional they were. The cheesecakes Adam made for our wedding cakes were AMAZING and one of the highlights of the day for my guests. The food was authentic italian and my relatives from New York were so impressed - we did not know you could get such delicious Italian food this far south ;). The weather did not cooperate but the staff was flexible and moved my reception inside at the last minute - the last minute change was seemless and none of the guests realized we had originally planned to have the reception outside! If you choose to have your wedding or event at Bear Lake you will be more than satisfied.
