Facilities and Capacity
Begin your day in the classically designed Lodge by preparing in one of the designated get-ready suites. Surrounded by the warm wood-lined interior of the ranch house, take a moment to relax with your wedding entourage. There is plenty of room for your hair and makeup teams to help you ready yourself for the festivities. Your ceremony can take place in The Saddle Barn, a beautifully pastoral event space designed to host elegant celebrations. Here, you can seat up to 70 guests for your ceremony and reception in the seating design of your choice. Weather permitting, you could opt for an outdoor service in the surrounding pastures around The Saddle Barn. You might choose to host an outdoor cocktail reception in the fresh mountain air before proceeding back inside to enjoy a delicious meal. The interior of the barn structure is notable for its exposed log walls and beams. Market lighting is placed around the perimeter, casting a romantic glow over your reception as the sun sets majestically behind the nearby mountains. There is plenty of room to accommodate a dance floor and after-dinner entertainment.
For a more intimate affair, you can enjoy a ceremony and reception based solely in The Lodge. Your event can take place on the main floor, which can then be flipped to accommodate your dining. You can comfortably seat up to 36 guests here, keeping warm next to the wood-burning fireplace. If the season is warmer, you can also move the event onto the lawn surrounding The Lodge. The outdoor spaces will allow your guests to mingle or break away from the crowd to take in the amazing vista.
