    Wonderful venue and hospitality!!

    Wendi and Bruce at the Black Bear Inn were incredible. They answered any questions we had, were very flexible in allowing us to come view the venue and they had a great list of recommended vendors that know the venue very well. The venue was clean and beautiful during the fall season! They were very helpful in showing us where things can be set up and even allowed us to borrow some of their tables for the wedding. They're such wonderful people and honestly the location really helped us make a memorable wedding we won't forget. We plan to visit again! The location is amazing if you want a woodsy cabin like venue. The outside is the best part of the venue! It's well kept and gorgeous.
    Thank you so much again for having us!

    Black Bear Inn's reply:

    What an absolutely beautiful fall wedding! Everything went smoothly, the weather was perfect, and your friends and family were gracious and lovely. We wish you a lifetime of happiness.
