Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • Say "I do" in a quiet mountain meadow, surrounded by old-growth cottonwood trees, an expansive pasture with two photogenic horses, and a glistening creek—all just 12 minutes from Old Town Fort Collins.
  • The fabulous Bellvue Event Hall offers a true indoor/outdoor experience, with multiple large glass doors, antique siding repurposed from the property's original barn, and custom, "floating" LED light rings suspended from the ceiling.
  • The lovely 1896 Farmhouse serves as your dressing area and romantic wedding-night lodging. Among its countless inviting amenities you'll find a quartz wood-burning fireplace, marble powder room, and relaxing covered porch.
