Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • Nestled at the center of a 100-acre working cattle ranch along the Pine River, this tranquil spot is within easy driving distance of Durango and Grand Junction. Its sparkling pond, towering pines, rows of hops, and rustic-chic architecture combine for a truly unique Colorado experience.
  • A willow arbor and handcrafted log benches set the scene for a ceremony beside the pond. Follow with cocktails around the fire pit beneath the cottonwood trees, and a reception under the peaked, linen-lined reception tent, with its stagecoach chandeliers and custom bar.
  • The Loft offers beautiful light, ample seating, a private patio, and dedicated kitchen, and is the perfect spot for your day-of preparations. And since it sleeps six and has access to the river and fishing pond, it’s also a fantastic honeymoon suite!
