If mountains, lakes, wildflowers, granite walls, or snowy backdrops are part of your vision, Bear Valley is the perfect place for breathtaking ceremony locations to create your happily ever after. Visit and experience all the grandeur of the Stanislaus National Forest. We are happy to put together an unforgettable experience for you and your guests. Nestled halfway between Lake Tahoe and Yosemite in the high Sierra, Bear Valley is a paradox of sorts — a vast alpine basin filled with all the means to explore four seasons while being so small it feels like a private escape to granite-filled solitude. The Bear Valley Lodge offers you and your loved ones a cozy, rustic nights stay amid the Sierra Wilderness. Our beautiful indoor venue creates a perfect rustic chic setting including a stunning four-story fireplace.
