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 Lakeside 54 Dining room - 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.

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 and bar service, Bear Lake Reserve is your one stop shop. 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 40 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.

    Gorgeous location, friendly staff

    This location is unbelievably gorgeous and the event staff were great to work with throughout the entire wedding planning process. Our guests were blown away by how beautiful, secluded, and full of nature the venue was. But this type of amazing location doesn't come without some stress. Over the course the weekend, we had virtually no cell service, spotty wifi, and a power outage. If you're not a laid back bride, pick somewhere else. If you're the adventurous type, this place is perfect for a very special wedding location that makes for a true retreat!

    Amazing Wedding Venue!

    We fell in love with Bear Lake during a family vacation before we were even engaged, so it was an easy decision to have our wedding here. The natural beauty of Bear Lake Reserve is exactly what I wanted, and our guest constantly told us how amazing the views were. Kelsie Rich was wonderful to work with. She answered all of my questions in a timely manner and even helped us with a last minute DJ issue.
