Lisa B. from Portland, Maine said: “During the planning process Julie was also there every step of the way to make sure things were in order. She was always just a phone call or an e-mail away – always quick to respond. It was so nice to have a real person willing to help and answer questions -“
The open layout allows you a truly unique opportunity to plan the wedding of your dreams, and have plenty of room to roam, play, and hangout onsite, in our well appointed houses and on our meticulous grounds!
Sarah B. from Westbrook, Maine said: “There were plenty of things to do to keep the guests entertained. We played corn hole and there was an amazing fire pit that everyone would not stop talking about. Also the chairlift swing at the front of the property served as a special getaway for some quiet time. I had so many
people tell me at the end of my wedding that it was the best wedding
they have ever been too.”

Bec from Boston said:
“We had a great experience at Mountain House. Julie was awesome and really helped us have the best day of our lives. There are three options for ceremony sites; all absolutely gorgeous with forest and / or mountain views. The most special thing about this property is probably the fact that the rental includes two buildings for the entire weekend, allowing family and / or wedding parties to stay on-site with you so you can spend as much time with them as possible throughout the weekend.”
