I can't say enough about how much we loved having our wedding here. First, we were thrilled that guests who wanted to spend a weekend out of NYC, where we live, could turn this into a weekend trip full of hiking, enjoying the Hudson River Valley and for history/military buffs, nearby WestPoint. And in October, Oktoberfest was nearby - and many guests pre-gamed - but not on the property as in years past. Second, I was so glad to have the convenience of having a salon and a place to eat on premises and near where we stayed. Third, I LOVED staying in a Cottage before the wedding - the night before and night of, we filled 2 cottages with close friends and family and in the hours prior to the wedding itself, hosted a "snacks & drinks" for the bridal party (helpfully guaranteeing they'd be in the right place for photos). I will admit, I thought the rooms in the Cottages were pricier than I expected - I think a wedding package that provided a modest discount on rooms if you booked at the venue would be a great marketing tool - I was so glad we splurged in the end.

Our partners at the venue, Mina Park and Sandra, were incredible. We worked with Mina for the bulk of the year and she is smart, has a good eye, is hardworking and responsive and knows her stuff - she recommended our florist (Lily's of the Valley nearby) and provided some great ideas for decorating the space. I'm grateful to have worked with her, because wedding planning is not easy (for someone as high-strung as I am) and her kindness and warmth were so great. And Sandra was able to step in the week-of and is amazing - also warm, she's bubbly and energetic and projects utter competence. Not once did I worry that something would go wrong (which I've been told is unusual) and these two are why. It's also very fun to meet people who so obviously love their jobs.

We were married there on June 14,2013. Chris and Aj where just wonderful to us. They took care of everything and made us feel like the special brides we were. We highly recommend bear mountain for your wedding venue. The chef Michael made our cocktail hour and reception meal with such delicious food our guests have not stopped talking about the great time they all had.

The entire team at Bear Mountain made our wedding so very special and a pleasure to plan. I planned the entire wedding from Cleveland and Ann Marie, AJ and Dana were always available and and eager to answer any questions or concerns we had. AJ even made sure we had a table for Sunday Brunch on top of everything else! The entire venue (Merry Go Round, Overlook Lodge, The Inn, the grounds) was stunning, the food delicious, and the service impeccable! Thank you!

We had our wedding here and it was a great / memorable time! The food was great, Ann-Marie was responsive, helpful, knowledgeable and flexable! Her staff was the same - great! The event went flawless and she had the perfect recommendation on other vendors to use. Our wedding was exactly what we pictured and eveyone who came commented on how much fun they had, how beautiful everything was, how good the food was and that "it was the best wedding they ahve been to in 15 years". This was comiong from mostly family and friends with big italian fmailys who have been to many wedding all over NYC. We decided to have ours "up-state" so it could be a "destination" wedding only 45 minutes from NYC. This was perfect since it wasn't too far but everyone stayed over at the lodge for the night and the partyy kept going until 3 or 4 am... No drunk drivers, lots of fun and since our party booked all 28 rooms we had the whole place to ourselves for the "after party"... Very memorable as people are still talking about it 2 months later

My husband and I had our reception at the Bear Mountain Inn on October 20, 2012 and is was absolutely PERFECT! From start to finish, everything I had envisioned and requested came true. I worked very closely with Anne Marie Grew, the catering manager, and she truly went above and beyond to make sure that we were happy with every aspect of the big day. We had signed our contract with BMI while the renovations were still in progress but I knew once we met with the staff that our wedding would be everything we dreamed.... and it was.

I would recommend this venue to any bride that is not looking for the conventional ballroom type wedding reception. Our wedding was rustic and nestled in the beautiful autumn backdrop of the Hudson Valley.... which was exactly the wedding I had dreamnt of as a little girl. Thank you Anne Marie and the rest of the staff at the Bear Mountain Inn.

We had our ceremony, and reception at the Overlook Lodge. My husband and I and our family and most guests also stayed overnight at the lodge. They did such an amazing job with setting up for our big day. Everything came out beautiful. The staff at the lodge were awesome and very fun to work with. They really made our special day one we'll never forget. The view is beautiful there and the food is amazing and delicious. The Overlook Lodge is a beautiful place to have a wedding at or any occasion. Thanks for making our day perfect.

We had our wedding ceremony and reception at the Overlook Lodge, and I couldn't have asked for a better venue! The views were amazing, the food was incredible, and the staff was great! The coordinator Ann Marie was a blessing; she was an immense help w/ the planning leading up to the wedding and then w/ helping the day run smoothly. I would highly recommend this venue to anyone looking for an amazing place w/ an extremely reasonable price tag.

We had our ceremony and reception at the Bear Mountain Inn on August 17, 2012. We live in NYC and were looking for somewhere not too far from the city that was still affordable. Bear Mountain is less than an hour away, and most of our guests were able to stay on site or very nearby. Things could not have gone more smoothly. The bridal suite is gorgeous and perfectly laid out; the two bathrooms made it easy for my bridesmaids and me to get ready and the swinging French doors dividing the bedroom and seating area meant the groomsmen could hang for a few minutes after the ceremony while my girls bustled the dress. The ceremony was outside on the deck, overlooking the lake. We were able to have a rehearsal the day before with everything all set up, and the staff was so helpful as chuppahs, flowers and music were set up throughout the day. Of course, the beautiful, rustic setting provides the perfect place for portraits and group shots! And the reception was everything we could have wanted. It was so nice to have the reception in a separate space from the cocktail hour, as it made everything go so much more smoothly. The staff followed our instructions about placecards, table names and favors to a T, and the effect achieved was even greater than I could have envisioned. The room was perfectly laid out for our 156 guests, and the dance floor was able to handle the stampede of enthusiastic guests. Ann Marie worked with us every step of the way to make sure our special day was beautiful and memorable. When we decided on Bear Mountain, the inn was still a construction site, and it could not have turned out more beautiful! Many of my relatives can be opinionated and fussy, and some are actually in the hospitality and wedding business themselves, and all agreed that Bear Mountain Inn did an exceptional job with the wedding. Friends reported that the cocktail hour had some of the most amazing and unique food they have tried (Thanksgiving dinner in a martini glass!).
