Amazing An Perfect
This experience was amazing- we got married during the Covid pandemic, Julie an Frank were so accommodating from the very start. They were always so easy to talk to an with all of the different questions that we had. The venue itself is breathtaking from the moment you arrive- there are so many different options at the Mountain House No matter what your style they are able to accommodate.
One of the things I truly loved was being able to have our family as well as our wedding party stay on site it made for great memories an great laughs.
I truly can’t Thank Frank an Julie enough for making our Wedding Day so amazing, they truly are what makes the Mountain House stand out from any other venueSent on 09/27/2020

Julie was amazing
My fiance and I decided not to book with Mountain House on Sunday River but only because of the logistics of family travel as I have several members coming from different states.Sent on 08/06/2019
I want to take the time to just acknowledge how responsive and helpful Julie was during this whole process! We are having a very small intimate wedding and have found that very hard to book (especially with the popular rustic feel) because most venues want 50+ as their minimum guest list. Julie was so helpful creating a package and brochure for us that suited what we were looking for. She responded to all of my questions and concerns so promptly and even came to us with back up plans and alternative approaches in case the weather turned for our wedding day.
Despite having found a venue closer to home Mountain House on Sunday River was a top contender for us to choose as our venue and I just wanted to share the wonderful experience I had. Planning a wedding can be so stressful, especially when you have such a small wedding but want a very specific vision for your wedding and Julie was one of the few venues that made me hopeful I wouldn't have to compromise on my vision.
Mountain House on Sunday River's reply:Thank you Rachael! We are so sorry that we won't be hosting your special day, and Frank and I wish you and Scott a magical day with many years of adventure, Love, and Happiness to follow!

Perfect Maine Mountain Wedding
Its been over a month since the wedding and I can't say enough good things about the whole experience. Julie and Frank were amazing to work with and have a beautiful venue that can accommodate a multitude of guests! The houses on the property allowed us to provide our wedding party a place to stay on site and made the day of the wedding extra relaxing since we were already at the location.Sent on 11/24/2019
The weather was perfect, the views were great and everything went so smoothly. The new addition of the overhang on the barn for dancing was such a great idea and when it is lit up it looks great. Our guests still mention how much fun they had dancing and how great everything was!
The Mountain House also has some recommended vendors for DJ/food/flowers and all of the separate parties did a phenomenal job.
I can't wait to visit again and remember all the amazing moments of that special day. Thank you so much for everything and making this day the best day of our lives.
The Mountain House on Sunday River is one of our favorite venues in the state! We have photographed there many times, and we always love going back. The owners, Julie and Frank, are awesome to work with, and we've heard nothing but great things about them from our clients. The Mountain House offers a large variety of scenic backdrops, from the mountain views, to the apple orchard, to the nearby covered bridge. It makes photographing there a pleasure.
I really love working at Mountain House on Sunday River. The venue is absolutely gorgeous inside and out and Julie and Frank are always a pleasure to work with. Not to mention there is a historic covered bridge not 5 minutes walk down the road. I would recommend this venue to anyone who loves the Maine wilderness but also enjoys the comfort of a beautiful New England style farmhouse. Can't wait for my next wedding there!
A great wedding venue in the mountains of Maine that also offers accommodations if you need them. Julie and her staff are very friendly and you can't ask for a better spot for your special day !
