    Amazing wedding venue!!

    We got married at Hillside this past August (2022) and can’t recommend it enough. Stef and Mark are incredible to work with, and the venue is stunning! We really wanted a ‘weekend venue’ where friends and family can stay on site, and have a bbq the evening before our wedding. We love the mountains so it was also important to us to have a scenic outdoor ceremony. Stef and Mark also made great vendor recommendations, and since all of the vendors work together so frequently, they ran such a well oiled machine all knowing each other and working together! We had SO many compliments on our venue choice and people asking how we found this hidden gem. You will not regret having your wedding at Hillside!!

    Hillside Lodge and Chalets's reply:

    Oh Jaclyn! You are the sweetest! You two and your group were a highlight of our summer for sure! I very much appreciate the kind words.

    Dishonesty kept deposit

    They wouldn’t allow us to pick a new year when Covid shut it down. After much back and forth agreed to give back HALF our deposit if someone rebooked on our date. They couldn’t even honor that. Someone rebooked on our date- they posted it on their Instagram page and they still didn’t give back part of our deposit.

    Hillside Lodge and Chalets's reply:

    Hi Robin - I am sorry to read this kind of review from you.
    You agreed to a non-refundable retainer when you signed our agreement. We are not obligated to refund anything.
    Re-booking was not an option as COVID made everything uncertain. I am sorry you feel you needed to post this on the internet rather than speak to us directly. The booking we had for your date was last minute and at a significant discount.
    Please know a cancelled wedding is a HUGE financial loss for us. The retainer is not even 1/4 of the revenue we would make in a weekend.
    The thing with agreements is that when you sign them, you agree to the terms.

    The Best Wedding Venue

    We cannot say enough amazing thing about things about our wedding at Hillside. Not only were we super happy, our guests can't stop talking about it! The cabins are cozy and more than 40 of our guests were able to stay on site. Mark and Stef were amazing hosts- it felt like we were celebrating our wedding with family- they truly welcomed us into their home with open arms. Every little question they attended to us and were always on site or a phone call away. Not to mention, what venue would take pictures of your day and then compile them into a photo book and send them to you?!? This is truly the best place, with the best people!

    Highly recommend booking your wedding here- you won't regret it!

    Hillside Lodge and Chalets's reply:

    Thank you for the kind words Shannon! You and Jack and your families and friends (and of course Butters!) were an absolute treat to have here! Thank you for letting us be a part of your special day. We think about you often!

    Beautiful All in One Mountain Wedding Venue

    Hillside Lodge and Chalet's is an incredible venue for a wedding. We had our wedding there on September 15, 2018, and every aspect was magical. The owners, Stefanie and Mark are incredibly kind, caring, and attentive. We were able to come for not 1, but 2 tours of the venue prior to the wedding. For the actual wedding, it truly is a one stop shop. We were able to have our rehearsal dinner there using the Campfire and BBQ's they had on site and we could set up the reception area the night before. They have multiple cozy cabins, a greenspace for tents and a few trailer areas along with a spectacular honeymoon cabin, so we were able to stay onsite, and our close friends/immediate family/wedding party could stay on site with us the entire weekend. Each cabin has a wood burning fireplace, and they have the cutest little furniture with heart accents cut into the chairs. They have a bridal suite onsite which you can use to get ready which was so handy. They have a stunning ceremony site which overlooks the magestic turquoise blue Blaeberry river, and has an impressive mountain in the distance. Pine trees surround you and their fresh scent sweetens the air of the entire area. Hillside has a path that leads down the river and includes multiple stunning areas for photographs, meaning you don't have to leave the site to obtain absolutely stunning pictures. The reception barn is a short walk up the road, so you can go straight from the ceremony to the reception barn. The barn is spacious and has beautiful touches such as chandelier lights, flush toilet bathrooms outside and a campfire pit right outside. Hillside also has multiple contacts within the wedding vendor community, and they all work so well together to create a seamlessly smooth wedding experience. Overall, the beauty of this venue, the attentiveness of the owners to detail and the ability to have everything at one location made this venue absolutely perfect for our wedding. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a stunning outdoor venue for their wedding.

    Dream come true!

    Hillside Lodge & Chalets was the perfect wedding venue. Stef & Mark (the owners) are the sweetest, down to earth couple. They were extremely helpful with the whole planning process & very patient with all of our questions. It’s comforting getting married somewhere where you know the owners are passionate & love what they do.

    It was the most magical place to get married & we couldn’t have asked for a better wedding weekend. All of our guests could not stop talking about how beautiful it was (we even had one say they’d like to get married there too!). The ceremony site with the mountains & blaeberry river is an amazing backdrop, the field for cocktail hour & lawn games was a huge hit & the barn was an incredible spot for the reception.

    It was so nice having approx 30 of our guests stay on site with us in the cabins, it turned our wedding into a whole long weekend gathering.

    If I could do it all over again, I wouldn't do anything differently. If you are thinking of getting married at Hillside, do it!

    Incredible Venue!!

    Stefanie & Mark were incredible! So accommodating. We had our wedding the Canada Day long weekend. The venue was everything we could have dreamed of. We rented the plank wood tables - best decision we made - it helped bring the vibe we were going for our reception. The cabins were so cozy and all of our guests still keep talking about the weekend. We loved spending time with family and Friends BBQ and by the fire pits the day after the wedding! We hope to rent out the cabins with family and friends in the future!!

    Perfect Mountain Wedding Venue

    We still can't believe such a perfect venue existed for our wedding. It is exactly what we would have dreamed up and was perfect for us as we love the mountains and the outdoors. The owners were super friendly, helpful and accommodating but also made us feel as though we had the place to ourselves and gave us lots of privacy. We loved having full access to the property for the weekend and the ability to bring in our own alcohol and vendors of our choice. The cabins were perfect for our guests and we loved having everyone right on site. Vendors in Golden are very familiar with Hillside and had no problem coming out for Hair and Makeup and there was plenty of space for everyone in the bridal suite. The setting was also perfect for photographs as everything from the Mountains, to the wildflowers and trees made it easy for our photographer. Would definitely recommend heading out to the meadow near the barn for sunset photos, one of the many helpful hints from the owners Stef and Mark who are a wealth of knowledge. We also loved that we could have a fire outside in the evenings (we lucked out with fire season) and made good use of the fire pits and the BBQ. The Barn itself was also perfect and didn't need a ton of decorating. It felt intimate and the space for the dance was perfect and it was well used by our crew! We also loved the entrance to the barn which had beautiful lights strung around the outside which made it a perfect spot for hanging out and mingling under the stars. I wish I could relive it again and again and couldnt have imagined a better venue. I would highly recommend Hillside for anyone who is adventurous, loves the mountains and the outdoors and is looking for something different and naturally breath taking. You can either dress it up or let its own rustic beauty shine, the best part is that it offers you the freedom to make it what you want! I still have friends and family say it was one of the most memorable weddings they've been to and I think the venue had a lot to do with it.

    Hillside Lodge and Chalets's reply:

    Ashleen - you are a gem!! We talk about you guys and your crew often! Many thanks for the kind words.

    The Hillside Lodge was a perfect fit for us. We wanted a beautiful wedding and we wanted everyone to have fun!! The venue itself puts you in that mood with the laid back cabin feel. Each cabin has its own name like Moose and Caribou. It's great to be able to have a portion of your wedding (we had our wedding party and our immediate family) stay at the Hillside with you.

    It's nice that you don't have to take everything down the night of the wedding! We were also allowed to source our own alcohol which greatly reduces prices. Whitetooth Bistro will be your caterer for the wedding if you choose to go with the Hillside. Everyone raved about our turkey dinner with a twist. And they are very knowledgeable about the Hillside because they've done so many weddings there.

    And the beauty of the area around the Hillside is amazing. The ceremony site is about a 4 minute walk from the reception site. You can see the mountains from the ceremony site which makes for beautiful pictures!

    The owners of the Hillside are very kind, flexible, responsive and easy going. I 100% recommend for a laid back, fun loving wedding! We had exclusive use of the entire lodge and it's grounds for the entire Canada Day long weekend from Friday - Monday.

    Beware: cell service wasn't great - which is something I wasn't expecting. It did make communication a bit more difficult.

    LOVE LOVE LOVE Hillside!!
    Beautiful setting, we needed minimal decor as the venue was gorgeous to start with. Golden is an amazing town with some really talented local vendors.
    Our family and friends loved having the property to ourselves for the entire weekend.
