Most AMAZING venue out there!Reviewed on 10/01/2013 Kristen B
When we first started our venue search, we both chose to go to Bear Creek first. We spend a lot of time snow boarding and just enjoying the atmosphere in the winter. We arrived for our venue tour, and was greeted by Therese, one of the wedding sales managers. She was awesome! long story short.. there was no need to even think about looking at other venues. We booked it the next day. Over months of planning, Therese was there to answer any questions along the way. Our wedding day finally came. A beautiful September day.The staff at Bear Creek was AMAZING. They all did a wonderful job making sure we were happy and everything went smoothly. Everything was absolutely PERFECT. The outdoor ceremony was gorgeous. We chose the Woodland room. It was perfect for the amount of guests we had. Plenty of room for dancing. The food was out of this world. Our guests are still calling us telling us how good their meals were. I would not change anything about our experience with Bear Creek. Our wedding day was PERFECT!!
Perfect Wedding VenueReviewed on 10/10/2013 Jocelyn H
Bear Creek was the first venue my husband and I visited, and we knew at that moment it was the perfect place. Our ceremony and reception was held in the Mountain Ballroom and everything was absolutely perfect. Lisa Geiger was with us from start to finish and made sure she did everything to make our day perfect. The food was excellent, the customer service was outstanding. The grounds of Bear Creek are gorgeous and the perfect place to have a wedding!
perfect place!Reviewed on 10/09/2011 Nicole S
my husband and i just got married there on 10/1/11 and we had the BEST time!! bear creek was the prefect venue for us and our guests. Therese was our wedding coordinator and out did herself!! I am normally a very detailed and organized type A person so to impress me is kind of a task ... Let me tell you ... Therese did not make me worry or wonder for 1 minute. Our reception was decorated EXACTLY like I envisioned. I cried the moment I saw everything. If you want professional service, delicious food, a beautiful atmosphere then look no further than Bear Creek ... you will not be disappointed in any way!!
After our tour of Bear Creek, my husband and I immediately knew it was the place we wanted to get married. We loved the mountain/rustic/classic feel of the venue, and we immediately knew that we would be in good hands with the wedding coordinator, Lisa. She was always one step ahead of us and kept us on pace during the planning process to have a stress-free wedding. Lisa was always incredibly responsive via email and phone, was able to solve multiple problems for us, and always had helpful suggestions. My husband has Celiac and Lisa went out of her way to make sure that his choice of a gluten-free beverage was on hand just for him at our reception. The staff also tailored our hors d’oeuvre tray just for him. Our wedding day was beautiful and went so smoothly thanks to the entire staff at Bear Creek. Our servers and banquet coordinators were attentive and made sure that we (the bride and groom) ate something. All of our guests commented on the beauty of the venue, the deliciousness of the food, and the attentiveness of the staff. I would highly recommend Bear Creek and Lisa!
Perfect VenueReviewed on 8/08/2015 Ashley S
Before getting engaged my fiancé and I knew we wanted to have our wedding at Bear Creek. We loved the rustic, yet modern feel of the resort, and were looking for a location where guests could stay the night on the premises (which in the Lehigh Valley area is hard to come by!). Throughout the process we used Therese as our planner. She did an awesome job with quickly answering my many questions in the months leading up to the wedding. As our wedding day approached she ensured that everything was organized and ready to go. The day of, everything was set up exactly as we had envisioned. The day progressed smoothly and every staff member worked hard to make sure that we had the perfect wedding day. In addition to the wedding reception being wonderful, the hotel staff was fabulous at catering to our guests and helping them feel at home over the wedding weekend. So many of our guests raved about the resort and the great service they received. The only small complaint we had was that we scheduled breakfast during the recommended hours the morning after the wedding; however, we were given a hard time about checking out a few minutes after 11 AM. As the bride and groom we thought the least they could do was to let us spend our breakfast with our guests, and check out after. Other than that it was an absolutely perfect venue. If we were to do it all over again, we would choose Bear Creek without any reservations.
Couldn't have asked for a more perfect dayReviewed on 8/24/2014 Emily R
My husband and I got married on June 14, 2014 at Bear Creek and we could not have asked for a more perfect day. From the first visit we made to Bear Creek, we knew it was the best decision for our special day. The landscape was so picturesque, Therese Labour (our wedding coordinator) was so kind and helpful and all of the staff we met was very friendly. Planning a wedding from 8 hours away, let alone another country (Canada) is not easy but Therese and her team made it easy. She was very responsive via email and worked with us to coordinate visits around our scheduled trips to Pennsylvania. Starting with rehearsal the night before, Therese lead us and our officiant (whose first time it was doing a wedding) through the motions. She's clearly done this a few times before. She put us all at ease and worked well with our group, having fun along the way. On the day of the wedding, the entire staff was so helpful in allowing my husband and I to be able to sit back and enjoy the day. We were not stressed, maybe some excited nerves, but definitely not stress. I had handed all of our things off to Therese and her staff and they took to setting it up and handling the coordinating of vendor arrivals and set up. I was able to spend the morning with my bridesmaids, getting our hair done and just enjoying the moment. Our ceremony went off without a hitch (minus my veil trying to fly away!) and our guests all enjoyed the festivities. The food was spectacular and the banquet staff provided wonderful service. Like most couples, we didn't get a chance to eat much, but the staff was kind enough to pack up the 2 extra meals we had due to a last-minute cancellation. They even packed up some extra crab cakes at my husband's request! Which we thoroughly enjoyed the next evening! We had planned a little "after-party" When the food we had ordered for our "after party" went quickly, the staff was kind enough to bring out chips and pretzels to keep our guests fed! They really paid attention to the little details throughout the day. The majority of our guests were staying at the resort for the weekend and from check in to check out, they were very well taken care of. We heard numerous guests say how lovely the hotel was, how good the food was and how courteous the staff was. If you're looking for a beautiful location, spectacular food, and wonderful staff to work with, Bear Creek is definitely a great choice for you!
No Detail Forgotten!Reviewed on 2/11/2014 Hollie H
After an incredibly successful wedding and the best day we could have imagined, I would without a doubt recommend Bear Creek to anyone looking for super service and attention to detail. Erin was our coordinator. She took care of us from beginning to end and made our day as stress-free as possible. No matter how busy, Erin was always responsive to our calls, emails and unusual requests. It is clear from the first visit how experienced Bear Creek is at hosting weddings, and that shows in every encounter. It was the perfect venue for us - allowing us to have our ceremony and reception in one location, while providing a great location for our out-of-town guests to come together.
Beautiful Wedding Venue and Best StaffReviewed on 10/01/2013 Kathy D
We had our wedding and reception (The Lodge)at Bear Creek in September, and we could not be happier with the way everything turned out. From the start of the planning process to after the wedding the staff was amazing and accommodating to all of our needs and wishes. They made our day effortless. The resort is beautiful, the hotel rooms are perfect, and there are many things for guests to do if staying over. Our wedding day was perfect, and we had several guests say it was the best wedding they have been to, and they will be returning to the resort on their own time because they loved it there.
ABSOLUTE PERFECTION IN THE LODGEReviewed on 8/31/2013 Kathleen W
The entire staff at Bear Creek Mountain Resort, especially Lisa Geiger, are beyond amazing. The venue is immaculate, the food is delicious, and the professionalism is unparalleled! I had my wedding reception on July 5th, 2013 in the Lodge Room at BCMR. Throughout the process I had nothing but complete confidence that everything about my reception would be exactly as I envisioned. The thoroughness ensures every detail will be executed exactly as discussed. The staff checked in throughout the reception to ensure the evening was flowing as we had hoped and to also keep us on track with the events (I.e. cake cutting, etc.) In addition to delivering the perfect reception, the staff provides any and all assistance possible. My aunt was provided with help escorting my grandparents through the facility. One of the 'team captains' helped to repair the hook & eye that had broken on my dress. Our 'late nite snacks' that were untouched at the end of the reception were transferred to the Grille bar so our guests could continue to enjoy the hot dogs and soft pretzels. To complete the perfect evening, the facility, amenities, and grounds are gorgeous. Our pictures turned out beautifully and our hotel room was a little retreat. We are looking forward to visiting BCMR several times in the future, including celebrating our on year anniversary there next year. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts! Lisa, you are truly amazing and we cannot begin to fully express how grateful we are for the perfect day!
Awesome venue, service, amentities, and staff!Reviewed on 7/12/2013 Andrea G
I honestly couldn't ask for anything more for our wedding. The venue provided everything I could possibly need at reasonable prices, including phenomenal photo opportunities. Everyone noted the excellent service and staff of both the wedding reception and hotel!
Wonderful!Reviewed on 2/15/2013 alicia h
My husband and I were married on October at Bear Creek Mountain Resort. It was more money then we wanted to spend, but it was completely worth it (we actually did our ceremony on a friday evening because it was a 10% discount). We had a lot of out of town guests coming, so we wanted someplace where outs guests could stay comfortably. Everyone loved it. The food was delicious, the service was very good. The give you a wedding coordinator to help you plan everything. Which was a huge help to us because we did not live in the Lehigh Valley at the time. My only complaint would be that, even though the wedding coordinator was a help, she was a little mean. I'm not sure if she was even really mean, as much as too busy. Other then that, I would recommend Bear Creek to anyone. Gorgeous outdoor setting and they treat you very well. We were very happy with it.
Romantic and FunReviewed on 2/02/2013 Amy R
We had fun skiing and staying in the King Suite with a jacuzzi, fireplace and living room, kitchenette and bedroom. The Spa at the resort had very nice services available although they were a little expensive. There were a lot of families and kids around the time we went (January) but it was nice having a big room to ourselves. Not many places to eat other than the resort restaurant and cafe. But if you like skiing and need a romantic getaway this is the place to go!
The BEST!Reviewed on 1/16/2013 Kristen H
I can't tell you how many of our guests enjoyed every aspect of this place! The food, the scenery, the staff....everything! Bear Creek really gave us the best reception anyone could have!
Bear CreekReviewed on 12/30/2012 Tara M
If you are looking for a rustic place to hold your wedding Bear Creek is the perfect spot! The staff there are wonderful to deal with and you are basically given your own wedding planner. The staff at Bear Creek handle all of the major and minor details that I would have never even though of. My wedding day was so relaxing and perfect and the staff at Bear Creek handled everything for me. Not only were they attentive to me and my husband, but they were equally attentive to all of our guests. The food is out of this world and the amenities were fantastic.
Amazing & Efficient StaffReviewed on 12/09/2012 April M
From our first visit to Bear Creek as a potential Bride & Groom we were thrilled by how we were treated. Of course we decided to have our ceremony & reception here. The wedding coordinator & staff were wonderful! They knew what needed to be done & were SO organized. They made my day easy. I had to just show up & they took care of everything - they have weddings down to a science!
amazing experience!Reviewed on 12/04/2012 Rachel H
I had the most wonderful experience with Bear Creek. From start to finish, their service was exceptional. We chose the venue about 11 months before our wedding, and the entire time of planning, Bear Creek was so accomodating and helpful. Erin Fritch was our coordinator, as well as Terese Labour, and they were both great! So organized and detail-oriented! Nothing was over-looked! The venue itself is gorgeous! The Mountain Ballroom was perfect for our ceremony and reception, and the rooms were great for our guests! It was an amazing experience I will never forget! A+ service!
The best place to have a wedding & receptionReviewed on 10/19/2012 Dina G
I cannot say enough about Bear Creek & it's staff! We had our wedding there outside on 10/6/12 & did not decorate except for the arch bc the scenery & potted plants were enough. The reception was held in the Woodland Ballroom & we had a fall theme w/ pumpkin centerpieces, a candy buffet, & homemade pickles for favors-the decor went perfectly w/ our theme. The staff is so accommodating...from Therese (the wedding coordinator), to the spa staff, to all the staff that worked our venue the day of. Everything went smoothly, the food was awesome, & all the guests are still raving about how much fun they had! Bear Creek was the perfect place for us, it was everything I could have asked for & I cannot thank everyone there enough for all they did for our special day!!
The BestReviewed on 8/13/2012 Jodi R
If you want to have a wonderfully elegant wedding and have no wedding-day set-up stress, this is the place to go. They are fantastic. Bear Creek takes care of pretty much everything. Guests at our wedding continue to rave about the resort, the ceremony, cocktail hour, the food, the overall reception and the after party.
Fantastic!Reviewed on 8/08/2012 Jayna B
Everything at Bear Creek ran flawlessly. Everyone kept telling us that this was the best wedding that they have ever been to. The service and professionalism at Bear Creek is fantastic. We couldn't have asked for a better day!
Amazing!!!Reviewed on 7/29/2012 Ashlee H
We could not have asked for a better venue! Bear Creek was absolutely amazing! They helped give us our dream summer wedding. The staff not only made Keith and I feel special, but all of our bridal party and guests as well. We did not have to worry about a thing on our wedding day! They had it under control. I would recommend this venue to anyone!!

The staff at Bear Creek was amazing, and provided excellent service to all of our guests. Our wedding coordinators Therese and Erin took care of every possible detail to ensure that the day went off without a hitch. Our reception was at The Lodge, and I would highly recommend it!

Perfect Venue!Reviewed on 2/17/2012 Alyssa W
While a little on the pricey side, BCMR is well worth the price, by having nothing to think about on your wedding day. They are organized everywhere from the planning stages to the day of. Everything they did was perfect, and if something wasn't we had many people around personally for us that we could have spoken to, from the coordinator herself, the banquet manager and our personal waitress. Everyone said the food was delicious, and they had a wonderful time. They are also very willing to accommodate special meals, and they have a very conscientious wait staff. I also did not have to set up anything, I dropped off my thing, including complicated centerpieces, and they had them set up just the way I wanted them.
Amazing!Reviewed on 1/17/2012 Jaclyn J
Bear Creek couldn't have been more wonderful! Therese was an amazing planner to work with, who was there for every single question and concern I had. I can't talk enough about Bear Creek and Therese. The staff was amazing and our guest are raving about how amazing things were...for the location, to the venue, to the food. Thank you for making my day amazing!
