Step into "mountain elegance with a dash of Appalachian style" as you make that very important venue decision. What an amazing backdrop between the lodges intimacy with the mountains alongside the fast flowing stream of the Big Laurel. Mother nature at its best.

The inside space of the lodge features an impressive two sided stone fireplace, antique wood floors from an old mill in Virginia, spiral log staircase, and overall attention to detail. Dance, dine and offer toasts under the antler chandelier and enjoy the stone fire pit for some conversation under the stars. Flagstone patios surround the lodge providing multiple ceremony sites, additional covered dining space, and a place to gather throughout the festivities. The lodge can handle up to one hundred and twenty five people.

If you are looking for an elopement or micro sized wedding, the lodge has all the resources you need to celebrate your special day. We offer a full range of services ranging from helping you pull all of your resources together to a turnkey experience.

What better words, about a wedding day at the Lodge than that of two recent brides:

Such a magical venue!

The Lodge at Bear River was such a magical venue for our wedding! Our photographer was able to capture amazing photos throughout the wedding and reception. There is a river that runs down the rear of the venue allowing many amazing photo opportunities. Callie was very helpful with helping us get our big day sorted out. The inside of the lodge was very spacious and had such rustic charm with a cozy atmosphere.

The best venue for my mountain wedding

This venue is out of this world! It is in such a romantic and beautiful setting. Callie was great to work with and very responsive. The day-of-event staff members (Misty, Mike, and Owen) were absolute rockstars as well and so friendly. I will never forget them. Everyone was in awe of the amazing staff and beauty that surrounds this venue. Look no further than the Lodge at Bear River for your wedding.

Relaxing & Stunning Venue

The Lodge was the perfect venue for our September wedding. You can hear the river from the outdoor ceremony location and it is the most relaxing sound. They light a fire pit for you and your guests too. Callie is also wonderful to work with. She was so kind and helpful. I definitely recommend using the Lodge for your wedding.
