Amazing in every way!

To Lauren and all of the staff at Whistle Bear,
THANK YOU! Thank you so much for helping to execute the wedding that we were waiting and longed for. The moment Caleb and I walked into the venue, we knew immediately that it was for us. We got so excited about everything and most importantly, the place where it all would begin for us. The booking process was very smooth and easy, even when COVID threw a wrench in our plans. We did end up having to postpone and even though this was not the easiest decision to make, the staff at Whistle Bear made the date change happen. They were on the ball and organized (matched me on my organizational level :)) when it came to the planning and execution of our wedding. Anything that we needed, they provided. Any question that we had, they answered. Any ideas that we bounced off of them, they contributed very helpful responses. The FOOD….OMG THE FOOD!!!! My mouth is watering just thinking about it. It was hands down the best food I have ever had at a venue and the best prime rib I have ever had in my life. We have been craving it ever since. All of the guests even commented on how amazing it was. The maitre d and concierge (Katie and Melinda) were incredible and helped to execute the day perfectly. They constantly checked in with Caleb and I to make sure we had everything that we needed. Overall, we were extremely happy with Whistle Bear and how everything turned out during (what could have been) a very stressful event. We cannot thank you enough.

Whistle Bear truly blew us away!!!

We just wanted to take the time to thank everyone who took part in orchestrating what is undoubtedly the very best day of our lives so far. I had very high expectations for this celebration and could not be happier with how everything turned out. The Whistle Bear experience truly blew us away. My every expectation was exceeded, and the day could not have been more perfect. Our guests are still raving about our venue and planning, the incredible food and signature drinks, and all the hard work Whistle Bear staff did to make this day a picture-perfect one.

I particularly want to thank all the serving staff who served tables professionally, in a timely manner and paying particular attention to food restrictions, as well as the personable bar staff, and anyone else who was there on our wedding day helping everything unfold so seamlessly. A huge thank you to Riley, our assigned wedding day concierge, who made sure our every request was answered, and for her extremely professional approach. As a bride, she made me feel so comfortable and heard, she was absolutely lovely towards us and our families.

Massive thank you to Leanne for taking us through the planning process, taking my every vision and request in stride, and making my beautiful cocktail wall dreams come true. Leanne took my many phone calls and always knew how to ease my mind when things seemed stressful! She is excellent at what she does, and any upcoming couple would be luck to work with her.

We give Whistle Bear 5 stars for the stunning setting they offer, the incredible quality of their food and drinks, the wonderful staff they provide, and the personalized approach they took to ensuring our wedding day felt unique, picture perfect and a reflection of us as a couple. THANK YOU!

The most stunning venue!

Where do we even start! Whistle Bear completely blew us away. From our first experience to our last the staff continually went above and beyond for us and we can’t thank them enough. Our special events consultant Leanne was absolutely amazing she was always willing to answer our questions and made sure everything we wanted was included in our day! The menu tasting was absolutely amazing we brought our parents with us and they were blown away by everything. On the day of our rehearsal we met Riley and Ryan and these two ladies completely blew us away. They both went above and beyond to make sure our day went off without a hitch and catered to our every need. We can’t thank both girls enough you were truly amazing we love you both so much! Our guests had such an amazing time and raved about the grounds, the venue and the food and drinks! Whistle Bear is a top notch venue and you will never be disappoint having your wedding here. Thank you all for making our day so amazing it was a dream!

Impressed wedding guest!

I attended a friend’s wedding at the Whistle bear Golf club May 25, 2024. There were 3 weddings taking place that evening. We were given a choice of 3 meals when we sat down. The carrot ginger soup was delicious. Everyone at the table finished their bowl. I had the salmon. It was moist, well seasoned and hot. The vegetables were perfectly cooked. The tables were cleared of the main course by 8pm. So unusual for wedding dinners to be good, hot and timely. I could see into the kitchen from the bar. It was very clean and organized. Part way through the evening I visited the washroom and it had just been thoroughly cleaned. It was immaculate. Everything about this venue is top notch and well worth the drive to Cambridge. I rarely write reviews, but Whistle Bear deserves special mention. Highly recommended.

My dreams came true

3 words, Beautiful, Exceptional and Professional! The Garden Chapel was perfect as was the Rose room, they required only little bit of decor to make it personal. Photography was easy, the waterfalls and forest made for the perfect back drop. Their Professionalism made my day run flawlessly, I trusted them to take care of the details and they took care of us and all my dietary issues! May seem a bit higher in price, but your paying a little more for the best you can get!

BEST place to get married!!

I can’t say enough great things about Whistle Bear. Everyone who works here is incredible - responsive, flexible, and helpful every step of the way. Leah was our consultant as we planned our wedding and she was so amazing to work with. Julia was our Maître D throughout our wedding day and kept everything on track and organized the whole day! She always made sure we had food and drinks, and worked constantly behind the scenes to keep everything going. I really can’t express how amazing she was - thank you Julia!!! I received so many compliments about how organized the wedding was, and how beautiful the venue is. It’s truly so stunning - between the ceremony chapel, the golf fields/waterfalls, and the beautifully decorated reception space. It’s the most perfect, magical place to get married. And the food!!! Again, I had so many compliments about the food.
The staff at Whistle Bear will work with you every step of the way to make sure your wedding is your DREAM day. Ask, and they deliver. Thank you SO much to Leah, Julia, and everyone at Whistle Bear for hosting the absolute most perfect day for me and my husband.

Best Dat Ever

I can’t say more great things about Whistle Bear and the Pearle team! They went above and beyond to make our day perfect! We worked with Leah throughout the planning process and she was amazing to work with, and answered any questions we had throughout. Natalie was our day of coordinator and she was so sweet and made us feel so comfortable and relaxed during our rehearsal and our wedding day! All the staff were so friendly and helpful, I would also like to thank immensely the staff that helped pack up all our table decor at the end of the night! We also got so many compliments on the food and how gorgeous venue was! It was such an incredible day and evening I can’t recommend Whistle Bear enough! Thank you again to everyone at Whistle Bear who helped make our day perfect!

Outstanding Staff & Experience

Lauren and her team at Whistle Bear were amazing to work with and made our day so special! They made it their priority to make our wedding perfect. Lauren was so easy to work with, and did an incredible job helping us navigate through COVID-19. She was very supportive, patient and responsive throughout the planning process. The day of the wedding Melinda was our maître d'. She did such an incredible job ensuring everything went to plan and making sure we had everything we needed. She provided so many personal touches, and you could tell she really cared about making our day special. The grounds and the Forestview room are also so beautiful and exactly what we pictured for our wedding! Thank you Lauren, Melinda and the rest of the Whistle Bear team for making our day perfect! We would highly recommend this venue!

Our perfect venue!

We recently had our wedding at Whistle Bear Golf Club in the Rose Room. The venue was very accommodating with all the COVID changes. Our consultant, Leah, was excellent throughout the entire planning process and very patiently answered all of our many questions. The staff went above and beyond to help bring our wedding vision to life and make the day special. Our team on the wedding day was very professional and did a great job. The food was delicious! The venue was absolutely gorgeous! We loved the garden chapel for our ceremony as it was a reliable location regardless of weather. The Rose Room is absolutely stunning and definitely worth seeing in person. Unfortunately it rained and stormed for the entire time we were on site at Whistle Bear and we didn't find there to be many great photo options inside. If the weather is nice, the photo locations outside are spectacular, which the venue allowed us to enjoy on a different date.
