Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • With its breathtaking spot beneath the Hermosa Cliffs, The Black Diamond Lodge delivers an unparalleled ceremony backdrop. Whether you say "I do" in the park beneath a canopy of aspens or in the peaceful meadow, it will be a moment to remember.
  • The Sow's Ear, your main event space, has a cool "modern lodge" design, with blonde wood paneling, a soaring cathedral ceiling, and enormous windows looking out at the stunning surrounding wilderness.
  • You can rent the entire lodge to house 48 of your nearest and dearest, plus 20 more in the nearby condos. Throughout the weekend, you'll hang in the game room, get pampered in the on-site spa, or simply relax in the hot tubs beneath the stars.
