We had our wedding ceremony our on the Pavillion overlooking the meadow. The 2-3 days prior to the wedding there was herds of elk romping through the meadow and even up until 1 hour before the ceremony there was an elk that was sitting right next to the pavilion. It made for some pretty epic photos and our guests had a blast seeing all the wildlife. The Twin Owls Steakhouse was the perfect backdrop for our reception, rustic chic is how I best describe it. The cocktail hour was held in the bar area, however I did hear that it got crowded in there quickly so guests started heading to their seats earlier than expected but they were entertained with drinks and apps so everyone was happy. We got some pretty amazing photos from the loft area and the DJ did a great job keeping the guests seated in the loft involved in every aspect of the wedding. It was a perfect day!

I searched all over Estes for a ceremony location. Most of the sites were high above the town and I could see roads and buildings all around the mountains. When we came to Black Canyon, I fell in love. It had everything we wanted. It was secluded but still not too far from downtown. It had cabins our guests could stay in. Even the reception site was in an old rustic log cabin right next the the ceremony site. Everything was absolutely perfect.

Sara Kleiber was our wedding coordinator for the day and she had everything run so smoothly. This was the absolute perfect location for a rustic mountain wedding. Our guests loved it here and our wedding weekend was perfect.

Black canyon inn is the perfect location for a mountain wedding. We were married under the pavilion which was perfect since it was raining during our ceremony. Sara (the site wedding coordinator) was super helpful both during the planning and on the actual day of the wedding. While taking pictures, I stepped in my dress and got it quite muddy and Sara came to the rescue to remove the stain. She also had pins to keep my veil in place during the windy ceremony. I cannot say enough positive things about Sara, she does her job well and was so sincerely happy about our wedding and marriage. When you book the black canyon inn for your ceremony they include three nights in one of their condos which are beautiful. The majority of our family also stayed in other condos on site and they couldn't stop talking about how beautiful both the condos and the location were. It also made it very convenient to have all of our family and friends close by. We booked the black canyon inn before visiting based on reviews and could not be happier with our choice. Wonderful views, good proximity to downtown and the park, and very attentive staff for the ceremony. Thank you black canyon for making our wedding day perfect!

My husband and I had gone all around Colorado looking for the perfect venue for us. Each one was lovely, but each seemed to be lacking something. When my wedding planner suggested we see Black Canyon Inn, I was thrilled because I love Estes Park. I've been coming here since I was a little girl. It's a quaint, but bustling mountain town with everything you and your guests could possibly need. Adventure, nature, shopping, dining, and wonderful fresh mountain air.

Our first communication with Sara was an incredible experience and we felt very welcomed. She had a way of making us feel special, like we were the only bride and groom they were dealing with and would go out of their way to make our day perfect. That feeling remained throughout the entire planning process.

On top of that the venue was GORGEOUS. It was everything we were looking for. The view was spectacular. The accommodations on site were lovely. We partnered with Twin Owls Steakhouse on property for the reception and used the lawn for cocktail hour. It was a perfect experience and the staff made sure it all went without a hitch.

Our guests (especially the ones who stayed on property) couldn't stop raving about the whole experience. We used the grills by the pond as a gathering place to bbq earlier in the week. The pool is heated. It was just perfect.

Black Canyon Inn was a wonderful place to have our wedding! After visiting several venues around the Estes Park area we decided that the Black Canyon Inn definitely had the best backdrop. We got married at the pavilion and it was breath taking. Sara and Rosemary were remarkable ladies to work with and they really care about making the day all about you and go as smoothly as possible!

Black Canyon Inn is the perfect place to have your wedding. It was the last venue that my husband and I toured, and immediately we both knew we wanted it to be the place where we got married. The grounds are beautiful and provided a picturesque backdrop for our photos. The Pavilion not only provides a beautiful mountain backdrop, it also practically provides shelter in the event of rain. There are restrooms for your guests just steps away, and easy access for those with disabilities. I had the privilege of staying in the brand new bridal suite, which was a lovely place to get ready, and just steps from the ceremony site. Sara expertly ran our rehearsal ( we were married by friends) and made sure the bridal party knew where to stand, family knew where to sit, music cues etc. (We had our band also do the music for the ceremony and they were able to provide mics for the officiant, which I highly recommend). We partnered with the onsite restaurant Twin Owls for our reception and had cocktail hour on the lawn. Everyone we worked with was professional, genuine, and responsive. Overall we could not have had a better experience and I highly recommend this venue to anyone.

This is a beautiful venue. The wedding was magical. There are a lot of rules to follow but when you are in the mountains it is a must for safety. You can work around it because the weather can change in an instant.The staff was very helpful especially the Black Canyon Inn Staff. The food at the Twin Owls SteakHouse was delicious. I can not say one bad thing, all was great.
