Perfect location for our dream Maine wedding
The Mountain House gave us a dream wedding beyond anything we could have imagined. The scenery was spectacular and the grounds were beautifully decorated and lit at night. We were stunned at how perfectly our "rustic chic" vision was realized. The open air barn, patio, and tent platform provided the perfect combination of spaces for a spectacular reception that comfortably accommodated ~175 guests. We had countless guests tell us that this was by far the best wedding they've ever been to.
And Julie and Frank were fantastic to work with - true experts at their craft. They were quick to respond, meticulous with keeping track of details, and so flexible to allow customization of their space. This allowed us to be creative and personalize many details, which was so much fun! As the day-of coordinator, Julie did a fantastic job ensuring that the day flowed smoothly. We were blissfully unaware of any work going on behind the scenes and only saw the final product, which was everything we'd hoped for and more. It is clear that Julie and Frank care deeply about each and every couple who chooses their beautiful venue, and they are genuinely excited to be part of such an important milestone. We HIGHLY recommend the Mountain House to anyone looking for a beautiful, personal, and insanely FUN Maine wedding.

I cannot say enough amazing things about this venue and it's owners. This location is absolutely breathtaking pictures don't do it justice. Julie and Frank have gone above and beyond to make sure everything falls into place for my special day. I highly recommend Mountain House for your wedding weekend!

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!

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 !
