Everybody has something that they enjoy so much that they will sacrifice a good portion of their disposable income to experience it. For me, it’s going out to eat. I will travel long distances, cross state lines, and do endless research to find unique dining locations throughout our area. As this time of year approaches, I turn my attention to outdoor dining venues.
As my girlfriend Shannon will attest, my criteria for going out to eat is very strict. I refuse to fall into the chain restaurant trap. I also refuse to take her to an outdoor dining experience that is no more than putting tables on a sidewalk or parking lot and providing subpar food that can be found anywhere. I can say emphatically that the outdoor dining at Bear Creek is unlike anything else in the region. Full dinner service on the deck is accompanied by great live, local music. The setting is relaxing and the food delivers as well. Instead of sitting 10 feet from exhaust fumes and pedestrian traffic, you are in the middle of 330 acres of a beautiful resort that is tastefully lit. I can also say without hesitation, and much research, that you will not find another outdoor dining option that combines food quality and ambiance quite like this.
Beginning May 26th, Music Under the Stars returns to Bear Creek every Thursday through August 25th. This return brings back the area’s best outdoor dining and a great summer experience that I personally look forward to every year. Summer will fly by quickly, don’t miss your chance to experience the outdoor dining season!
The season seems right for the upcoming Mother’s Day. Moms always represent what we like most about the Spring. The sun is warm and inviting like mom, the birds are singing like mom, the leaves are emerging and the grass is growing, making nature spring to life, like mom has a way of doing whenever we tell her about what we are doing, or where we are going. Although we rarely recognize our Mothers, she is most often the biggest influence in our lives. Bear Creek has so many great ways to treat your mom well, like she deserves. Our Mother’s Day Brunch is one of the area’s best, most likely whey it has sold out so fast, but that is not the only thing we offer for your deserving mom. Why not look into the Mother’s Day weekend getaway? This is the person, who raised you, supported you, criticized you, motivated you, taught you, scolded you and molded you. Check it out all of the Mother's Day Getaway details here. If your mom needs some relaxation, send her for a day at the Spa. You can purchase a gift card for whatever service mom would enjoy the most, actually, for those who can’t go with to Bear Creek, the gift card would have you covered for all the great options that Bear Creek can offer. Our gift cards can be used in The Grille for a sushi dinner, The Trails End Café for Margarita Monday’s, The Hotel on one of our great overnight packages, or even in our Mountain Shoppe for some BC apparel. However you decide to celebrate your Mom this Mother’s Day, take some time to really think about who you are, take the bad stuff away and make sure you let Mom know that most of that good stuff you have, came from her.
The winter season is winding down and wedding season will soon be on its way. As we make our transition into the 2016 wedding season, many couples will start to look at venues and ceremony sites. The Lehigh Valley is a great place to start the adventure because it has much to offer. As a wedding assistant, I have gained great experience working for one of the best wedding facilities in the area. Bear Creek Mountain Resort is a wedding destination located in Macungie, PA that has everything you need for your special day.
I enjoy coming to work every day because of the resort’s architecture and views. It is truly a beautiful place to have a wedding. The resort is located on 300 acres which offers beautiful mountain views, rustic décor and an atmosphere of warmth and elegance. Besides the aesthetics, I also enjoy working with an outstanding banquet team and reputable coordinators that hold themselves to a high standard of service. It is very rewarding to give the bride and groom everything they want and need on their wedding day.
To make your day less stressful, Bear Creek offers a full service spa and salon with highly experience staff to help you before the big moment. Having an on-site hair and nail salon helps the day run smoothly and the staff is always there ready to help any last minute needs. I think one of our biggest assets here is that we have an on-site hotel for the convenience of your guests. Everyone can enjoy the night and keep the party going while only being a short walk away from your suite. The two restaurants at the resort provide wonderful dining for rehearsal dinners and morning breakfasts. One advantage to having a wedding at Bear Creek is that everyone, bridal party and guests, can relax and enjoy their time at the pool or spa before the ceremony and don’t have to worry about the hassle of traveling to ceremony sites and reception venues. This resort encompasses it all as a wedding destination and I honestly believe your wedding day runs smoothly when everything is within reach.
