Host Your Next Event With Us!

We provide a spectacular setting for special events inside the Inn, and outside with our footbridge, lawn reception areas, and large patio space. We welcome small and large groups, and provide an exceptional facility for weddings, retreats, anniversaries - any special event. We can accommodate events up to 150 guests, and are happy to assist with catering recommendations. The Inn possesses a beer/wine/spirits license, making beverage service easier for you.


A wedding planner's dream! There are so many areas within and throughout the property - indoors or outdoors, making the Black Bear Inn an ideal setting for your special day. The front lawn area is slightly removed from the Inn for privacy, with ample room for chairs. The back patio can easily serve as a group dining area. The gathering room and large fireplace create a beautiful backdrop for the wedding ceremony. Please call us with specifics and we will be glad to review your options to help make your wedding a truly special event for everyone involved. Visit our Wedding Page.
