BEAR MILL ESTATE
Nestled amid the rolling hills of Lancaster County in the idyllic Township of East Cocalico, Denver, Pennsylvania, Bear Mill Estate awaits the opportunity to make your time with us memorable. With a blend of old-world charm, natural beauty, and commitment to service, we customize to your needs for any ceremony or celebration. Your event is our priority, and making it an experience of a lifetime is our privilege.
As soon as you and your guests turn onto Weaver Road, you will cross a steel grate bridge with a small waterfall overlooking Cocalico Creek. To your left is Bear Mill Estate.
Built in 1739, Bear Mill Estate boasts a 200 year old pine, an island preserve, a pond, clay tennis courts from the turn of the century, and lush gardens connected by stone walkways. We take great pleasure in attending to every detail.
At Bear Mill Estate, nature’s beauty meets culture’s sophistication.
We provide a natural space for outdoor weddings and a solarium carriage room for the bride to enjoy with her attendants. In the mill on the first floor, Kerry Kegerise has created a tavern retreat like no other; it contains a bar, antique wooden tables and chairs, a huge fireplace, and a stunning and comfortable salon area filled with natural light.
The second floor hosts the formal seating area with a veranda built over the mill race, expanding onto the island preserve. A glass elevator travels up the back of the mill’s stone wall. Guests experience the sound of rushing water, original brownstone walls, and an iron turn wheel still in place. From this height, views of the landscape are beautiful.
Events at Bear Mill Estate will include valet parking, full time wedding/event coordinator, caterers, musicians, officiants, lighting, beautiful linens provided by “Special Occasions,” and on-site floral designs.
