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!

Fall Wedding at Sunday River
Julie and Frank were instrumental in making our daughter's wedding on October 13, 2018 a perfect day to remember always. When we first contacted them, Julie and Frank were excited, responsive, and so willing to offer creative options for customizing the day in any way we wanted! The fall at The Mountain House on Sunday River is exceptionally beautiful, with the fall foliage on full display. The meadow, overlooking Sunday River, was the perfect spot for the ceremony with the mountains awash in a sea of reds, oranges, and yellows. Julie was our "Day of..." coordinator as well, and we felt relieved knowing that she would take care of every detail, thus eliminating some of the wedding "stress." We are very particular about details, and though we must have driven Julie crazy with such attention to these details, she never showed any irritation with our questions, suggestions, or worries as we planned a "mountain chic" wedding. Instead, she assured us that all would be done exactly as we asked, and it was! On the day of the wedding, it rained on and off several times before the ceremony. After each shower, Frank dutifully went to the meadow and wiped 160 chairs dry for our guests. Finally, just as the hour approached, the clouds parted and the setting was magical- blue sky and puffy white clouds just as we had hoped! Julie and Frank took care of every detail no matter how small or insignificant, and opened their venue, including two homes for our guests, for the most fun weekend. We couldn't have been happier with the venue or with the coordination and assistance of Julie and Frank. It was a weekend we'll never forget and we highly recommend The Mountain House if you're looking for a beautiful outdoor setting for your wedding. You won't be disappointed!Sent on 10/18/2018
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 !
