Fantastic Venue and Owners
Mona and her husband are very kind and super accommodating. The venue itself is gorgeous and perfect for cozy woodsy touch to your wedding. My experience working with Caribou Bay Retreat has been a dream so far and I can't wait to be wed there in October 2020.Sent on 09/15/2019

Not enough nice things to say
I do not have enough nice things to say about Mona, her Husband, and Caribou Bay. When my fiance and I initially started planning our wedding we went to look at a few venues but immediately knew this was the place for us for many reasons (the venue itself is gorgeous and the property/ceremony areas are beautiful and immaculately kept to name a couple) but booking with Mona turned out to be one of the best decisions we could have made for another reason entirely . With our date only 6 months away we found ourselves in the midst of a global pandemic and having to make some big changes to the wedding. Mona has made an incredibly challenging time as easy as it could possibly be. She was ALWAYS available, accommodating, flexible, helpful, and above all incredibly caring when we came to her with concerns or changes to our initial plan. Words can not describe how grateful we are that we made Caribou Bay our choice and for the experience we have had with Mona as the venue owner. I have, and will continue to recommend booking Caribou Bay Retreat and Mona to anyone who will listen, it was the best choice we made since we decided to tie the knot in the first place :)Sent on 08/18/2020

Amazing everything was perfect!!
We have had nothing but good meetings and conversations with mona at caribou bay retreat. Everything was perfect for our big day. Jack was amazing and knew exactly what to say for our ceremony. Mona did all the decorating which was out of this world. The accommodations are well kept and very clean.Sent on 09/15/2019
