“The most breath taking experience of my lifetime.  Everything about Bear Lake was so far above our expectations … The shear beauty of the venue, the pricing, the flexibility, the professionalism, their patience and understanding, their resourcefulness, the food, everything about it was incredible. What an amazing experience. If you are wondering if this is the right venue for you, look no further. IT IS!”

“Amazing Wedding Venue! We fell in love with Bear Lake during a family vacation before we were even engaged, so it was an easy decision to have our wedding here. The natural beauty of Bear Lake Reserve is exactly what I wanted, and our guest constantly told us how amazing the views were. Kelsie Rich was wonderful to work with. She answered all of my questions in a timely manner and even helped us with a last minute DJ issue.”
