We found Mary's Lake Lodge over a year before our wedding. We would show up unannounced just to look around the grounds and never once were we made to feel like pests. Ashley is so friendly and will help you with anything. The food is unbelievable, all of our guests kept telling us that the food was wonderful...too bad we didn't get to try a lot of it. (It is true, you don't get to eat a lot.) The place does not need a lot of décor as the building is beautiful and the views are stunning. We picked this spot because I am originally from Alaska and it reminded me of home. The staff is very nice, we even crashed the Tavern Bar for pictures and they didn't mind at all. We weren't wanting to spend the average $30k on our wedding and Mary's definitely help us with that. They are so affordable you are always wondering when are the extras going to be added in...but they never are. If you chose to get married here, you will have the best day ever and your guests will always remember the spot. Just beautiful. Our wedding was about 90 people and had plenty of room. We were able to use the deck as extra space which was awesome because we had such a nice day. Pick Mary's Lake and you won't be disappointed!

I work for a luxury car company and can quickly recognize when I'm receiving amazing service. The wedding staff at Mary's Lake Lodge delivered luxury service. They were attentive, patient, kind and respectful. They made us feel special and I will never forget that. Ashley and her team are well experienced and their skills are more than trustworthy. It's important for a bride to trust their venue and it was such a relief to know Ashley and her team were running the show.

The food was fantastic and the location beautiful! The banquet room is great if you have no more than 100 guests. It's just enough room to feel intimate.

It is a lodge, which "lodge" is true to its name. My only recommendation for improvement is to update the facility in minor ways like add more sufficient lighting in the hotel rooms and suites and update the amenities to match the beautiful condos on the property.

Long story short, the outstanding service by Ashley and her team was a significant part in the success of our wedding day. For that, I will be forever loyal and thankful to Mary's Lake Lodge.

Everything was so beautiful and so perfect! The entire staff really went above and beyond to make our wedding day perfect! The wedding coordinator worked so hard during the entire planning phase (6 months) to ensure everything was exactly like we wanted! I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone! We loved the place so much, we are talking about renting one of their cabins for a week long getaway this summer!

The food for our reception was as outstanding as the venue itself, and everyone enjoyed it immensely! Our little granddaughter has a severe, potentially fatal nut allergy, and the chef and entire kitchen staff went out of their way to keep her safe so that we could all enjoy the evening. There aren't enough words to express appreciation for that!

We had our wedding at Mary's Lake Lodge, and they provided everything we needed and more. The Forever Garden was left completely open to us for whenever we needed and we were received with a level of professionalism that is truly rare these days.

The area is beautiful and the price is reasonable compared to other Estes Park venues. I would definitely recommend having your special day here.

Marys Lake Lodge is the perfect place for a mid sized wedding with the rustic feel to it. Ashley is the best coordinator an bride could ask for, always there for you, answer questions, even be there for your wedding day to make it all go smoothly. The food was to die for and cleans plates all around with the best praises to the chef. Spectacular view and food, what else do you need for the perfect wedding.

Mary's Lake Lodge did such an amazing job at making our wedding and welcome dinner run smoothly. Even after our ceremony musician showed up an hour late, they found a guitarist who was willing to come in and play for us. I cannot thank Mary's Lake Lodge enough for all of the hard work they did for our wedding weekend!

Their food was AMAZING! Both for the Pasta Buffet Welcome Dinner and the four-course meal for our reception we received many complements. Thank you Mary's Lake Lodge!

I just had my wedding at MLL and I was absolutely thrilled with the quality of service. Karen was very helpful assisting us during several trips to the site prior to the wedding, Janet was so wonderful the day of, and all the waitresses during the reception were so friendly and so flexible. We had a Sunday brunch and everything ( prime rib, belgian waffles, eggs bendict..) was delicious. The money was well spent here, and they were fairly priced. They were all very professional and followed through with everything.
My family also stayed at one of the lodges that sleeps 10-12 and it was very nicely furnished, complete with a full kitchen. The whole lodge made for wonderful pictures. I can't say enough, it was wonderful to have nothing to worry about the day of the wedding.

We loved having our wedding here! The setting was incredible! The rooms were great. The staff was so friendly. The food was amazing! They even have their own brewery now--the Potent Peter IPA is fantastic! Ashley is wonderful! She knows how to plan a wedding. She's patient, she responds quickly to calls and emails, and she genuinely seems to have fun doing her job.
The only thing we had an issue with was the flowers. If you're doing your own, there is no place to store them in a cooler. We couldn't use the kitchen cooler because of sanitation reasons I think. And I know they wouldn't want the liability in case something happened to the flowers. We used a few different peoples refrigerators in the condos. It was a little tricky keeping track of which ones were where.
Other than that, everything was wonderful!!!

We had our wedding at mary's lake lodge and it was wonderful. First of all the location was absolutely beautiful! Our wedding pictures all had a wonderful background and turned out great. We had a wedding weekend so all of our friends and family stayed at the lodge and they were all so pleased with the beautiful location and great service. We had no problems on our wedding day, Ashely and the great banquet staff really helped to pull everything together so that I only had to get ready and could enjoy my day. The room looked better than I had imagined, they had already put up white lanterns and pretty white fabric which really brought the room together. Kim, the head banquet waitress, was extremely helpful and even put together plates of food and put it in our honeymoon suit fridge for us to enjoy after the reception. Both my husband and I and our parents were very pleased with the service and how friendly and wonderful the staff was! I would defiantly recommend this place for anyone who wants a mountain wedding!!

We had our wedding here in November of 2009. It was the perfect setting and everyone at the lodge was great. The staff during the reception were both friendly and professional and everyone commented on how good the food was. They even boxed up everything we didnt eat and let us pick it up in the morning. I would recommend this venue to any bride to be if they are looking for a smaller romatic venue with a rustic feel.

We recently had our reception at Mary's Lake Lodge. It could not have been any more perfect. Ann-Marie and her staff were very responsive to all of our needs, flexible with any changes, and very helpful with the preparation and take-down.

Although you pay a little more per person during their peak season that other places, I feel it was well worth it. The food was amazing. It was a plated 5-course meal and EXCELLENT.

They do the cake cutting and serving if you would like. They clean up the venue after the event and put your stuff to the side and let you come get it the next day so you're not having to clean up the night of your event.

All in all, I would defnitely use Mary's Lake Lodge again for another event. It was spectacular!!!

The Spa at Marys Lake Lodge did hair and makeup for my wedding last summer. Everything ran on time, the staff was great, and everyone looked beautiful. The atmosphere was calm even on a Saturday, which was a huge plus. I think the prices were probably on the high end for Estes Park (excepting the Stanley), but the convenience and the atmosphere were well worth it. Otherwise, we were looking at having hair and makeup done at the Stanley, which was too much of a wedding mill for me. Highly recommend Marys Lake!

Also, some of our guests wanted manicures, and were able to get appointments the day or two before the wedding. That was fantastic.

We had our wedding weekend (minus the ceremony) at Mary's Lake Lodge. It was spectacular! Practically all of our family and friends stayed at Mary's Lake Lodge that weekend.
Ashley, the onsite coordinator, took care of us from start to finish. In the months before the event she was attentive and took care of everything. In fact, the day before our wedding she coorfinated a location for our rehearsal dinner within what must have been minutes. She went above and beyond to make the weekend perfect for all of us.
The condo's are amazing. Ashley booked us in a two bedroom with amazing views of Mary's Lake and the mountains, hot tub and large entertaining space for myself and the bridesmaids to get ready.
The wedding day was one of the least stressful days of my life. Nancy from blooms came up with the perfect flower arrangements to go with a rustic mountain theme wedding. Go with her suggestions. Meanwhile, all I did was coordinate the DJ and Ashley took care of the rest. We did do a little extra decorating in the grand room but most of it is already in place from lighting to the amazing mantle and perfect table settings and linens.
If you choose Mary's Lake Lodge you can't go wrong. It's the perfect location for a Colorado destination wedding (from a local girl). Thank you again to Ashley and the staff at Mary's Lake Lodge!

We had an indoor wedding at Mary's Lake Lodge in October 2008. The venue was beautiful and the food was incredible. They did a great job of flipping the room for the ceremony. I only wish we could have danced longer!

We enjoyed everything! The site is GORGEOUS. We did have many small details they said they would arrange for us not be followed through with. We noticed, but no one else did. The only real glitch is that our bar was not set up on time for our cocktail hour....which kinda kinked things a bit. If you use them, have your own wedding day coordinator/friend be the point person.

We loved the look of our reception venue. It was exactly what we wanted: rustic mountain elegance with a stunning view. But I would have liked the people at Mary's Lake to be a little more flexible and accomodating, considering we were doing our wedding in the middle of winter (their off-season). They offered NO discount on lodging to our guests, despite the fact that we were throwing our reception there and filling 20+ rooms during a time when they normally have less than a dozen lodge rooms filled.

Other examples: I wanted to have a post-wedding brunch in the cafe, and they said we had too many people (50?) and would have to pay a $500 set-up fee for a banquet room. I wanted to have Hurricanes as our signature drink, and had to haggle with them to get the particular mix I wanted, AND pay a dollar extra per drink just for that mix, which they wouldn't let me order on my own, despite the fact that it has no booze in it.

In the end, I was thrilled with the overall experience, but not too thrilled with what it took to get us there. Honestly, there were times when I would have moved the venue if it weren't so close to the big day.

I planned to have all of my bridesmaid's get their manicures at the spa at Mary's Lake Lodge. Fortunately, only me and the Maid of Honor ended up getting manicures. First of all, despite the fact that they knew I was getting married in a few hours, they started on the Maid of Honor first, and I waited about AN HOUR for the woman to finish up with someone else. She made me 45 minutes late for my hair appointment, and it was literally the ugliest manicure that I've ever had. It was supposed to be a french manicure, but the bottom coat was too dark. By the time I realized how bad it looked, I didn't have time for her to do it over. She was so slow, that she had to leave 2 nails unpainted and come to my condo to paint them later. She didn't show up to finish the manicure until I was walking out the door to go to my wedding, so of course those nails were destroyed by the time I got to the church since they didn't have a chance to dry. This was a $40 manicure, so there was no excuse.
