The Perfect Mountain Wedding Location and Colorado Wedding Reception Site

Because Estes Park offers the unique and enticing combination of a picturesque mountain setting and convenient proximity to Denver International Airport, this charming gateway to Rocky Mountain National Park has become synonymous with Colorado mountain weddings.

Just four miles south of Estes Park, Taharaa Mountain Lodge’s wedding ceremony and reception venues turn the fantasy of a casually elegant Colorado wedding, complete with million-dollar mountain views, into a reality. Situated on a pine and aspen tree-covered mountainside at 8,300 feet of elevation, Taharaa looks out over the Estes Valley. With views encompassing the Continental Divide peaks, the Mummy Range, and the majestic Twin Sisters, your wedding guests will inevitably gasp with surprise and awe at the surrounding beauty.

Whether you dream of a small celebration with your closest family and friends or grand reception for up to 150 guests, Taharaa Mountain Lodge’s stunning location, exemplary service, and budget-friendly pricing create the perfect setting for an unforgettable mountain wedding.



For Colorado destination weddings with 50 to 150 guests, Taharaa Mountain Lodge hosts 5-7 hour receptions in our casually elegant Great Hall and adjoining covered Deck and open-air Courtyard.

Our Great Hall, which can accommodate up to 150 guests, embodies the relaxed sophistication of iconic mountain lodges with its hardwood floors, log-beam framed vaulted ceilings, floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace, and antler chandeliers and sconces. These design details, combined with stunning panoramic mountain vistas from the three walls of picture windows and from the adjacent covered Deck, bring to life the vision of a Colorado Rocky Mountain reception hall and wedding that you have been seeking.

If you’re looking for the perfect outdoor mountain wedding ceremony at the same site as your reception, Taharaa offers the option to have a ceremony with up to 150 guests at our mountainside Pergola or on the covered Deck (130 guests maximum for ceremonies November-April).

The Perfect Mountain Wedding Hospitality

Having your wedding at Taharaa Mountain Lodge means that you will enjoy not only our outstanding physical venue but also our commitment to professionalism, gracious hospitality, and detail-oriented planning.

Our priority is to make your wedding day as effortless and memorable as possible. Taharaa Mountain Lodge guarantees that your wedding will be the only event of any kind happening that day and that you will have the exclusive use of our ceremony and reception facilities. Since Taharaa hosts only one event per day, you can also be assured that you will have the undivided attention and coordinating efforts of Taharaa’s staff leading up to and throughout your event.

 The day before your wedding, we guide you through a rehearsal of your ceremony, if you have chosen to have it at the Lodge, making sure that we address all of the details of the ceremony that will make you, your friends, and family feel calm and comfortable on your big day.

On the day of your event, Taharaa’s staff provides coordinating services from start to finish. Supervising vendors and the set-up of the ceremony and reception facilities, monitoring the flow of events to match the timeline you have planned with us, and assisting with any unforeseen needs that arise during the day, Taharaa ensures that you and your family and friends can enjoy each other’s company on the day of your wedding rather than managing preparations.
