There is so much I can say about this venue, and how amazing Julie & Brian were throughout our whole wedding process. First of all, Julie & Brian are amazing people who are so warm and lovely, they made us feel so at home in their inn. The Inn itself is absolutely beautiful, every room is special in its own unique way, and the barn is a great space that makes the perfect spot for a party. The inn grounds are gorgeous, the lake is so much fun to hang out on, and the trails on the property were perfect for morning walks with our dog Baxter. We rented out the Inn for the weekend so our whole family could stay with us, and it ended up being one of the best decisions we made for the weekend. From the time everybody checked in to the inn, to the rehearsal dinner, to the wedding, every single detail was taken care of. Julie, Brian, and the wedding coordinator Cassie were amazing on my wedding day, and there was not a single thing out of place. My husband and I LOVED our wedding at the Bear Mountain Inn, and we would 1000% recommend this venue to anybody and everybody who is planning a wedding in Maine.Sent on 10/12/2018

I would 100% recommend Bear Mountain Inn for anyones wedding and I am so incredibly happy that I found this venue in my wedding planning process. I had originally visited the location when the Inn was under construction with renovations, and so I only had a vague idea of what the finished result would be come wedding day - but meeting Julie, Brian, and Cassie and hearing them talk through the plans was enough for me to say yes. And when I arrived a few days before my big day to start setting up, I was speechless by just how gorgeous everything came out with the renos. Plus, the weather cooperated with us all weekend and made for a truly magical experience for our party of 113 people :)Sent on 10/18/2018
I can confidently say that our friends and family will be talking about our wedding for a long time to come, and both my husband and I could not have asked for better hospitality from the team at BMI. If you have the chance to get married here - or even make a short visit - DO IT!

This venue is absolutely perfect - rustic but polished, relaxing but with plenty of opportunities to be active and enjoy the outdoors. We combined our wedding with an extended family and friends weekend and everyone had a fantastic time - we are still getting compliments weeks later. Julie and Brian are fantastic hosts - from the moment we arrived, we felt pampered. As one of my guests put it - "they thought of everything!". From the individual s'mores packs for evening campfires to the baskets of items in the guests bathrooms with anything a guest may have forgotten, Julie and Brian make sure everyone has what they need to have a great time. Getting married here was like getting married at a good friend's house - we highly recommend it!Sent on 09/09/2018

HOSPITALITY, VERSATILITY, SERVICE, FUN!Sent on 10/18/2018
When we first pulled into Bear Mountain Inn with the farmhouse and adjacent restored barn, on a gorgeous 25 acre property, overlooking the lake, we knew we had found a pearl. We met with the new owners Julie and Brian Sullivan and while touring, came to love them and their plans to renovate the property. We booked the Bear Mountain Inn immediately for our daughter's wedding weekend events to be held in July 2018. They delivered on everything we asked with excellence, and it was delightful working with them from start to finish.
This venue has fun as it's middle name. In addition to the three flawless events they created for us at BMI, there are many goodies on site. They have a great assortment of beautifully redocorated rooms for guests to chose from which include standard rooms, interesting suites, a private cottage and a family or group lodge with it's own kitchen. Our guests found it convenient and relaxing to stay at BMI where there are numerous, cozy gathering places, lots of lake toys, and games to be enjoyed inside or out on the lawn. We made wonderful memories enjoying all the extras while gazing at the lake at BMI.
The only thing superior to the property itself, is the exceptional hospitality and warmth provided by Julie and Brian and their caring and efficient staff. They went over and above our expectations, and their experience allowed them to take care of things before we even knew there was a need. And another perk ... Brian is savvy with technology and can interface with any audio/video presentation needs you may have.
We are very grateful to everyone at BMI who helped create all the joy we experienced throughout the weekend. If you are looking to have an event in this area of Maine, BMI is a must look!

We just got married at Bear Mountain Inn and the day exceeded beyond our imagination! The venue is absolutely stunning! We had our ceremony over looking the lake and the reception to follow in the newly renovated barn. The views, decorations, service was outstanding. The patio with the fire pit is a cozy touch for your guests to get some air and relax outside a bit while the party still goes on inside. Brian and Julie went above and beyond to make sure we had everything that we needed and the smallest details were taken care of all before the big day. They are an outstanding couple to work with and made our wedding day that much more special. We highly recommend Bear Mountain Inn if you are looking for a rustic barn venue<3

Bear Mountain made our dream wedding a reality! Brian and Julie are so helpful and accommodating, not to mention some of the nicest people you’d ever want to meet! Our family and friends enjoyed every minute of their stay and were all passing on their own rave reviews of this Venue. The barn with it’s beautiful chandeliers, was the perfect spot for our reception. The grounds a lovely background for our ceremony and pictures. We had a fun outdoor BBQ rehearsal dinner complete with several lawn games and a beautiful view. The staff at Bear Mtn are all very friendly and helpful. That Maine hospitality really shows through. Can’t say enough good things about our amazing wedding weekend here!

My now husband and I had our wedding here and it was EXCEPTIONAL. Julie and Brian made sure that every single detail was perfectly planned and executed. We stayed beyond our wedding for a luxurious and relaxing mini moon. Our bridal party & family stayed here and had the time of their lives, so much so that they're already planning a renuinon back at the bear mountain inn. Julie and Brian are amazing people who take so much joy in making the inn feel like a home away from home. Our only wish is that we could have stayed for longer. Thank you for the perfect start to the rest of our lives!!!!!

Julie and Brian are absolutely amazing! We booked the BMI for our wedding in 2017 and the barn had just been beautiful refinished. There was plenty of room for our immediate family to stay there all weekend which was wonderful. The breakfast each morning was delicious and I can truly say the BMI was my home away from home while we got hitched!

My husband and I were married here in June. We were the first wedding in the newly renovated barn and the first wedding with the new innkeepers Julie and Brian. From the time they purchased the inn just a few months before our wedding, Julie and Brian worked tirelessly to finish the barn and make sure everything was perfect for our big day. The weekend of our wedding was more wonderful than we could have ever imagined. The grounds are beautiful and our guests enjoyed playing volleyball and lawn games that were set up before the ceremony. Julie and Brian even rushed to get a new ping pong table just before the event because we explained how much our families love ping pong! After the ceremony we had our reception in the gorgeous renovated barn and an evening of fun and dancing. We and our guests all loved the accommodations, the delicious homemade breakfasts, and the warm hospitality. Even now, months later, our guests are still telling us how much they loved the wedding and their weekend at the inn.
We can't speak more highly of the Bear Mountain Inn and we strongly recommend it for couples looking for a beautiful venue with talented, professional owners and staff to help make the most of their special day.
