Bear Valley Lodge
Consider the Bear Valley Lodge for your wedding, reception or group event. We offer banquets for groups of 20 or more, accommodating up to approximately 300 people. Our executive chef has put together menus with a wide variety of culinary choices.

All banquet menus are served buffet style except for seated dinners. Buffets are usually served in the Creekside Dining Room and the Cathedral Lounge, but arrangements can also be made to have your banquet set up in the John Ebbetts Room. Find menus and pricing options in the Extras Packet. Tables, chairs, linens, party supplies, etc. may be rented from the Lodge or another establishment. Lists of Lodge rentals and rental companies have been provided in the Extras Packet. For your convenience, there is also a list of Local Services.

A block of rooms in the Lodge can be reserved for overnight stays along with your event. Amenities include telephone, satellite TV and private bathrooms. Wireless internet is available free in all common areas. The Lodge has three price ranges, which include economy rooms, upgraded rooms and suites.
