Few places on earth give you the sense of awe, authenticity, and romance that you’ll feel here.

Whether you’re planning a more casual outdoor wedding or an elegant black tie event, you’ll be able to experience your idea of the perfect mountain wedding.

The most recent addition to our facilities, the 4,200 square foot High Lonesome Barn, was painstakingly reconstructed from a Civil War-era Ohio barn, and features breathtaking east-facing views of Devil’s Thumb, and the Continental Divide, and is perfectly suited for weddings of up to 350 guests. A converted hay loft provides additional space for intimate receptions and small gatherings, while two stone fireplaces add to the historic charm of this special space.

Our 2,900-square-foot indoor reception room, The Broad Axe Barn, is built from the hand hewn beams recovered from a Civil War-era Indiana barn and features a 25 foot vaulted ceiling, 7 x 10 feet windows and a 2,200 sq. ft. deck with stunning views of the Continental Divide. It’s the perfect venue for weddings up to 160 persons. We also offer more intimate spaces for smaller weddings.
