    Margo has been great right from the start; we have been twice for venue tours and to sign our contract. She'd been incredibly helpful and show genuine excitement for our wedding! Between the location, scenery and location, Bear Estates at Cranberry quickly became the perfect option for us. They even have resident swans that are right on the waterfront of the ceremony site! We are so excited for our wedding there

    Overall Very Pleased

    Beautiful setting, rooms are a tad pricey and check in was a problem with a lot of guests as you could not check in until 4 pm which in my opinion is a standard wedding time. But other then that no complaints.

    Margo (the co-ordinator) and the staff over exceeded our expectations.
    Some people might just look at the price and turn away, however the price includes ZERO STRESS in the planning at the venue. That alone was worth so much to be able to enjoy every moment of our Daughters and Son in laws Wedding day and evening.
    Not one little detail was missed by Margo, her professionalism and attention to detail is carried out with such a calmness.
    Horderves and Bar service were served with big smiles and friendly servers. The Food....well it was AMAZING. Not one guest did not mention to us how wonderful the meal was.
    Not one regret in having our Daughters wedding at such a Beautiful venue.

    The venue is beautiful, the staff is friendly and the coordinator Margo was great to work with. Everything went smoothly and I would recommend the space and service to anyone. It was nice to see my vision come true and know that everyone who attended our wedding had a great time. The food was excellent, they have a wonderful menu to choose from and all our guests raved about how much they loved what they had. It was a wonderful success and we truly had one of the best days of our life at the Bear Estate!
