graduation gala U of A Law School

  • 5 of 5

We had the good fortune to spend the weekend of our son's law school graduation at the Manor. Although some of the kitchen appliances had issues, the experience was wonderful. The owner and his family were extremely helpful and easy to work with. The privacy of the home is awesome, and the premises were immaculate. it truly was a most memorable experience facilitated by the amicable host. The house lends itself to various activities and multiple configurations. The rooms are private and the outdoor space was tremendous and utilized extensively by our party who arrived from PA and Del and NH and FL would come back in a heartbeat. Would recommend for any occasion.

By the way, this took place in May of 2014 and we are writing now because it STILL brings smiles to our faces when we recollect.

Full family gathering for a near by wedding

We had family from all over traveling to tuscaloosa for a wedding and one of the best parts was having all of us staying together at Bear Creek Manor. There was more than enough room for 20 of us to stay comfortably in their luxurious setting. TBB

Beautiful Southern Wedding at Bear Creek Manor

  • 5 of 5

My then fiancé and I rented Bear Creek Manor for our intimate wedding/reception (& pre-wedding festivities) and we were thrilled at how wonderful and beautiful our special day turned out. Sebastian and his team were available throughout our stay to ensure everything was taken care of and to answer any questions that came up. My entire family stayed at the Manor during the few days of pre-wedding/wedding festivities and the Manor was perfect because everyone had their own space/bedrooms and at the same time there were many common areas to hang out as a group. It worked out great for all our guests to have several wedding related events and the wedding/reception at the Manor as well because the location was the same for all the celebrations. This also made it very easy for my family as they flew in from California and didn't have to worry about driving/navigating in a new town. All in all, our stay was memorable and wonderful. We, our families and all our guests were honestly blown away by the property. We recommend renting Bear Creek Manor for your own celebrations/getaways/events!

Gymnastics Weekend

  • 5 of 5

A group of moms and daughters from a gymnastics team rented the house for a long weekend. We attended an Alabama gymnastics meet, and the girls participated in a competition close by. We all had a blast! The girls danced in the ballroom every night, and the house had a lot of hang-out spaces for everyone. We created some great memories!

We had a great weekend. The house is wonderful and convenient for a large crowd. There are places you can go to be alone and have quiet time or you can hang out with everyone in one of the large rooms or outside on the back porch. We loved it and highly recommend it.

First Cousins' Reunion

  • 5 of 5

I rented the property for my first cousins' reunion that was held on July 4. In one word--magnificent. Because of the beautiful layout and deco, minimum decoration was needed. Kitchen and dining areas access made food preparation and serving easy. My guests were thoroughly pleased--they couldn't stop talking about the venue or the event. I would certainly recommend this property for rental.
