Surrounded by the Continental Divide’s stately peaks, the Feathered Pipe Ranch is the perfect special events venue for your destination wedding, family reunion, or other special occasion. Set amidst wildflowers and natural gardens the hand-crafted timbered Lodge stands above a huge lawn, which slopes gently down to a sparkling lake. The waters reflect the clear blue sky, the quaking aspens and the forested slopes of the mountain heights.
The lawn at the lakeside is a favorite wedding site, whether for a large or an intimate gathering. The spacious Lodge, with its high rafters, balcony and great fireplace, easily accommodates an indoor ceremony. The main room provides dining space for 80 guests, and its shining wood floor a wonderful place to dance the night away. Rustic chairs and tables are distributed in casual groupings on the lawn for a relaxed and comfortable mingling in the glorious mountain air.
For more than forty years the Feathered Pipe Ranch kitchen has been justly renowned for its natural gourmet cuisine, perfectly prepared and presented. See our recommended menus for a buffet-style feast, or arrange to have the meal served at table. Our chef can supply a scrumptious and beautiful wedding cake to your order, or you can provide your own. You may wish to hold your rehearsal dinner here as well—we will be glad to help you plan your menu.
You may find it convenient to have your wedding party and special guests stay in our comfortable lodge, cabins, yurts. deluxe wall tents or tipis. You and your guests will enjoy the natural beauty of the grounds, with its lake for swimming (try the rope swing!), boating or fishing, and its many trails for hiking or horseback riding. The Bathhouse has a commodious sauna, a hot tub and massage room for relaxing at the end of the day. A fire on the hearth or a campfire under the stars will carry the magic into the night. Take a virtual tour of the Ranch.
