Perfect venue with accommodations , An Eventective User from Levant , Maine

I highly recommend Black Bear Inn for a wedding ceremony /reception venue. It was ideal for out of town guests and very convenient. Abby and Tracy are top notch when it comes to day of coordination and working with you throughout your process of wedding planning. The food is excellent and there quite a large selection to choose from including snacks. We chose a popcorn bar which was a Huge hit! The ladies at the front desk were also so helpful! Rooms are gorgeous ( stay in the suite!) can't say enough about how great the experience was!
