Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • Tucked against the slope of Twin Sisters Mountain, this gorgeous, family-run spot has lived over 100 years as a beloved summer camp, and is now open to the public as a stellar wedding venue.
  • Exchange vows in Fish Creek Ranch Meadow, then follow with an epic reception in the striking pole tent, with its multiple peaks, intimate lighting, and views of Crags, Longs Peak, Mount Meeker, and the Mummy Range.
  • There’s a pretty chapel available for indoor ceremonies (with adjacent courtyards for welcome or post-vow cocktails), and Chipeta Hall surrounds your celebration with vintage alpine charm.
