Sam amazing !
Their in house planner (samu) was phenomenal. We met her a couple montha early because my m had questions and she was so accommodating.
I would recommend upgrading chairs. We rented from mountain events to get theore rustic look.
Our favorite spot
In the past we always get small tokens of appreciation in our room as returning guests (like cookies), which we didnt get this time - I found that odd not only as a returning guest, but especially so because it was our wedding. Some hotels will sprinkle rose petals on your bed, or have a bottle of bubbly for you - not here :( Outside of Sam's (the hotel event planner) great service and attention, it felt no different of a stay from a regular vacation visit, let alone our wedding/honeymoon. That was disappointing to me, my husband didnt care.
The onsite restaurant the Prow is very tasty, and accommodated our very large rehearsal dinner. Their room service is prompt, despite always being a busy place!
While I recommend the venue for its beauty and location, it is on the pricey side and there aren't a lot of perks/extra's out of it. Their events staff is very good, easy to deal with for a wedding, and get you exactly what you ask for. Nothing more, nothing less ;)

Beautiful venue with hard-working team
a) Meal was different from what we had requested (after our tasting we had changed our order for one of the main meals). Nonetheless, it was still great food. I would NOT recommend the GF/Vegan gnocchi, however this is the only vegan option.
b) No shots were requested and this was not followed.
c) Meal service was requested to be paused during speeches and this did not happen. There was some clanging of cutlery and plates as they were being removed. While in the middle of listening to a speech (I'm the bride), I was served my dessert. It was disruptive.
Overall, there will be little mishaps during the day. I believe if you are surrounded by kind people trying their best, this is ultimately the most important thing.
Great service, amazing food and such a beautiful place to get married!
So easy and stress free.
Our wedding was perfect!
The staff here were phenomenal
The main building is gorgeous with the little bar area.
As for rooms, ours was dated, but pet friendly as we brought our dog. My parents requested a room in the new area, amd their room was gorgeous. I would recommend requesting a new room.
However, what really made the celebration and the stay, was the staff. They were absolutely phenomenal. Over the weekend we requested extra chairs, a play pen, salt on some ice, and the christmas decorations to be removed prior to our ceremony. Everything was addressed within minutes. They were so fantastic.
The meal during the reception was incredible. We had the options of steak and salmon, my grandpa said it was the best steak he has ever eaten. The lava cakes were mouthwatering!
All in all, what made this place were the staff. Good work you guys, thank you for the worry free weekend.
Such an amazing venue!
Intimate Mountain Wedding!
