    Captured our Hearts

    Our wedding at Caribou Bay in October 2021 was everything I ever could have imagined. Mona and Jack were so incredibly helpful and attentive to all of our needs! We couldn't have asked for a better place to celebrate our love. Caribou Bay will forever hold a place in our hearts. We loved that fact that we had the entire property and cabin for our wedding party to use...the wedding flies by as it is, so waking up the next of the wedding and seeing our dad's, my groom, and all the groomsmen fishing and enjoying themselves helped to keep me calm. It was truly a retreat and one that we will never forget!! Thank you!

    Perfect Day

    Mona and her husband take pride in their work. They made our wedding day perfect and stress free. Mona did all the decorations for me which looked beautiful. The owners live on site and are there to answer questions at anytime.

    You don’t want to miss out on this rustic, outdoor opportunity!

    This is the first and ONLY venue we looked at. For an all inclusive price, you get the entire property Thursday-Sunday and get to stay on site. Nothing beats that. Mona and Jack (property owners) were so responsive to any questions we had. Mona even let me use her personal property for the first look with my dad…. Back story, it was a DOWN POUR on our wedding day and my dad is visually impaired, so we needed an area that was very lit and provided enough space. Mona was generous enough to offer her back porch (with a clear overhead patio cover) for this special moment. Mona and Jack went ABOVE AND BEYOND for our wedding weekend. We are so lucky to have found Caribou Bay.
