Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • With its desirable west Vail location (it’s just minutes from town, where guests will find loads of accommodation and adventure options) and its top-notch amenities, this purpose-built venue ensures your mountain wedding will be both seamless and stunning.
  • Modern alpine design and tons of natural light are the hallmarks of the elegant wood and stone Pavilion, which features a vaulted ceiling with arched trusses, and a wall of windows framing a lush woodland backdrop.
  • The spacious patio lets you make the most of your gorgeous setting. Featuring a gas fire pit for use in the warmer months and ambient heating for use in the winter, it can also be tented, so it’s a wonderful spot for an al fresco ceremony or cocktail hour in any season.
