We had a wonderful wedding at Bear Mountain! Despite rain and almost 90 degree weather, it was a fantastic day.

The Inn itself is just gorgeous and has a really great, unique feeling.

After some early snafus - our first coordinator left without warning and the catering department was initially a little hard to reach - everything came together. Chris was fantastic dealing with last minute, unexpected changes and he was with us all night long. Joe, the maitre d', was also great - thoughtful and courteous. We also ended up having significantly less people than our agreed upon minimum and Chris was terrific in giving us a bit of a break.

The only slight negative to Bear Mountain is that the space immediately surrounding the Inn is a public park which can get crowded on summer days. On our wedding day, there were a lot of people bbq-ing and playing music around the lake, so I'm glad we ended up having to move inside.

Overall, we had an amazing day and I couldn't be happier with how it went!

We recently had our reception at the Overlook Lodge and I couldn't have been more pleased with how it all turned out. The staff is wonderful, responsive and accomodating. The only issue I had was that the original person I was working with left and no one informed me. It took some work to find out she was gone and who the new person was. Prior to that, they were very responsive and Brittney, who took over, was also very responsive and helpful. The Overlook Lodge was exactly what I was looking for and perfect for our reception. We had approx 70 guests, which filled the room nicely without feeling empty. The food was excellent and we got pleanty of compliments on how everything turned out. It was a rainy day, but we still were able to get all our pictures outside, and from what I have seen so far, they look amazing. The setting is perfect! I would definitely recommend Bear Mountain to anyone planning a wedding. It is not your typical/boring catering hall type venue.

Beautiful venue even in the rain! This is a wonderful wedding venue if you are looking for a 'destination' wedding without flying or driving hours. We had ceremony, reception and overnight accommodations in one place, plus it offered our guests some day after activities. Wonderful venue!!

I just had my reception and wedding ceremony at Merry Go Round Pavilion and my experience was mixed. This is my first review ever, but I feel it's important for other brides to know what they're getting into. First off, Chris, the catering director, is absolutely incompetent. Do not contact him....avoid. He did not respond to emails or phone calls; a week before my wedding I actually had to call his boss for him to call me back. My husband is in the Airforce and we had to move to Colorado during wedding planning. Chris made the experience so much more stressful than it had to be. Luckily, the wedding was very nice and the staff did a nice job setting up. My only gripe is that I had a plate of food that they removed before I could eat it. So I'm sure the catering is wonderful, but I wouldn't know. Overall, it was beautiful and my pictures are great. Everyone had fun. You need patience and a long lunch hour if you book this venue.

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 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.
