Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • Located at 7,500 feet in the Rocky Mountains, this majestic hotel will captivate you and your guests. Choose from multiple ceremony and reception venues, and enjoy views of Longs Peak and Lake Estes throughout the event spaces.
  • The gorgeous Pavilion is their newest event complex. Set against the striking backdrop of Long's Peak, Rocky Mountain National Park, and a pond, it combines cutting-edge design, technology, and innovation. Here, you'll find a 250-seat auditorium and over 8,000 square feet of banquet space, all enhanced by beautiful architectural details and large windows that frame the natural surroundings.
  • The Library Room offers a more intimate setting, with a romantic, roaring fireplace, elegant bookshelves, and views of the valley and Lake Estes.
