    July 2019 Fantastic !!!

    My daughters July 2019 wedding at the Bear Mountain Inn was truly wonderful (and our large family has MANY weddings). The spectacular outdoor grounds, the perfect lodging, the incredible food, thoughtful party room structure, but most of all…THE GRACIOUS STAFF. From housekeeping to front desk, from wait staff to chef (Armando), from barkeeps to catering (Gia), we could not have been happier. Valerie (Coordinator) and Rich (Banquet Captain) were graciously professional and hands-on the whole weekend. A most memorable weekend and perfect wedding. THANK YOU 😊.

    Best Venue Ever!!!

    Where do we begin? As a wedding photographer’s wife, I have seen so many photos of different weddings and heard horror stories of venues simply not living up to a bride and groom’s expectations. My husband assured me that the Bear Mountain Inn was one of the venues that time and again did live up to the expectations every time he photographed a wedding there.
    Without Mina, our coordinator; Rich, our maître d; and their staff our wedding day would not have gone as perfectly as it did. There was a snowstorm the day of the wedding, which led to plenty of issues and stress, including guests and our shuttle company cancelling last minute. This is where Mina really exceeded our expectations and kept me from having a breakdown on my wedding day. With so many things seeming to go wrong at once that were totally out of anyone’s control, she somehow found a way to calm me down and take control of any and everything we needed. Mina went above and beyond to make sure she found a new shuttle company for us to work with the night before our wedding, hired extra staff to be available in case others couldn’t make it in with the storm, and seamlessly rearranged tables to accommodate for the last minute cancellations from a handful of our guests. She and her staff even slept over the night of the wedding to continue working into the morning hours to make sure our wedding was as perfect as possible. I was given the freedom to design the reception space as I pleased, and my vision was executed flawlessly by the staff. We even booked one of the rooms downstairs at the Inn for our rehearsal dinner because we love the look and feel of the entire space – not to mention the incredible food. Everywhere you look it’s inviting, cozy, and romantic, which is exactly what we had in mind for our wedding weekend. We could not recommend the Bear Mountain Inn enough for a wedding venue. Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU!!!
