Wow what a night. My wedding will forever go down in the history books as the best wedding ever. My family already wants to book a annual family reunion at the inn. My wedding was the end of October and my goodness I couldn't have had it anymore magical. Guests came up to me and my husband all night and complemented how EVERYTHING was perfect. Mina is a doll. She really knows everything that needed to be done that day and the months leading up. She never even questioned herself. Always found a solution. The whole staff was extremely accommodating. I wish I could do it all over again and again. I wouldn't change a thing.

We got married October 2016 at the Merry Go Round Pavilion at Bear Mountain and it was beyond magical. We worked with Sandra and she did everything possible to make sure we had the wedding of our dreams. The food was delicious and I still have guests telling me that it was the best wedding that they have ever been to.
Sandra made us feel special from beginning to end and totally embraced the offbeat nature of our whimsically spooky wedding.

This venue is perfect for a rustic wedding! My husband and I love the outdoors and knew scenery was important for our wedding. We went to look at Bear Mountain and it ended up being the only venue we looked at and booked. We live in Connecticut and the majority of our family and friends were coming from New York or New Jersey which made the location very accessible. There was so much for our guests to do other than attending our wedding that weekend--hikes, visits to the zoo, Oktoberfest, golf, etc. We wanted our wedding weekend to also be a nice weekend away for our guests which Bear Mountain delivered on.

We did everything on site for our wedding. We did our Friday night Rehearsal/Welcome dinner at Merry-Go Round Pavillon which was a great way to kick off the weekend. The food was delicious, venue was beautiful and our guests got to ride the merry-go round (great photo opts!) For our wedding the ceremony, cocktail hour, reception and after party were all at the Bear Mountain Inn which has a great natural flow from one portion of the wedding to the next. The outdoor terrace was absolutely beautiful for the ceremony. Our ceremony was at 6:30 so the natural lighting in September was beautiful. Both the room for the cocktail hour and reception are very spacious. With our 120 guests, there was plenty of room for everyone to spread out. We heard numerous compliments from our guests throughout the weekend about how good the food was. The accommodation options on the property (the Inn and cottages) were perfect for our guests that wanted to stay on site.

One of the other highlights of our wedding experience was working with Mina Park, Director of Catering. Mina was extremely responsive (even on her days off!) any time I reached out with any questions. She was very organized and offered great suggestions along the way. She expects a high level of service from her staff which was very clear throughout the entire wedding weekend.

Our wedding was held at The Cliff House at Bear Mountain and it was truly a spectacular venue for an intimate event.
The food was out of this world and got several comments about how the food was the best wedding food (and it was buffet). Mina was very accommodating and helpful and I am trying to come up with another event I can book just to work with her again and eat the amazing food we had at our wedding.

We LOVED our wedding at Bear Mount Inn! It is such a beautiful and special location...and still so close and easy to get to from NYC and surrounding areas. The entire staff, especially Mina Park, director of catering, were so amazing from start to finish and paid attention to details that helped make the weekend flawless-and keep me calm! There are too many awesome and thoughtful things that Mina did to list-from being extremely accommodating like when we switched our ceremony and reception chairs last minute, to getting us drinks and food at the cocktail hour so we made sure to eat...all of it just made everything go so much more amazingly!! The staff there are clearly experts at their job and I feel so lucky that we got to work with them! I recommend this venue highly and have only great things to say about it!!!

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
