Taharaa is the perfect blend of rustic elegance in a mountain setting.
There are many highlights of working with the team at Taharaa, including how communicative they were and how transparent they were about costs and timelines. The thing that stood out the most to me was how absolutely cool as a cucumber the staff always were. That's not to say that they weren't on top of any issue that arose, but it was so nice having someone who was confident and collected about the wedding day, along with accommodations and breakfasts and just everything!
Taharaa was absolutely the right choice for us. I highly highly recommend Taharaa if you are looking for somewhere special in the mountains, with amazing, unobstructed views. We even had a deer join us for our rehearsal!

We had a small ceremony on New Year's Eve. We were thrilled with everything! The lodge was beautiful, the staff was attentive and very helpful, and the day went off without a hitch. Although we didn't use the Great Hall room for our ceremony (we got married on the deck), I think it would be a fantastic location for a bigger wedding. It overlooks the mountains and has a beautiful mantle in front of which we took photos. Overall, we are extremely happy with our choice, which we admit was a bit risky since we were out-of-towners and could not visit any of the venues. Metta, Josh, Terisa, and the rest of the staff put us at ease and were very helpful.

We had our wedding ceremony and reception at Taharaa Mountain Lodge and couldn't have been happier. Not only is the venue gorgeous, the owner Diane was so helpful and wonderful to us. It was such a pleasure to work with Diane throughout the wedding planning process. She was just an angel and we can't thank her enough.

I absoluetly loved working with Taharaa Mountain Lodge for my wedding. I was a long-distance bride and Diane, the owner, worked with me for a year planning the wedding. She was always helpful and prompt in her responses to my questions and concerns. The Lodge is beautiful and unique and your guests will love the ambiance. I stayed in the Cattle Baron Suite and it was a fantastic place to relax prior to the wedding. If you are wanting to get married in the Estes Park area, be sure to check this venue out. Their breakfasts are something you won't want to miss and their friendly and personal service won't disappoint! I can't wait for my husband and I to go back.

It was wonderful!!! Diane and Pam were so helpful! I knew that by having my wedding at Taharaa my guests would be impressed with the beauty of it! Diane is so professional and full of great advice. I believe the day would not have gone as well as it did if not for her.

It's been almost a year since my husband and I were married at Taharaa. What a beautiful place!! The views are breath-taking and the atmosphere is so rustic and so Rocky Mountain-ish! Everyone there was wonderful to work with. We had an outdoor ceremony and then our reception in their Great Hall. It was PERFECT!

We looked at many places to have a mountain-themed wedding that would feel like a destinationto our many out of town guests. When we found Taharaa, we knew it was the perfect place. The great room is beautiful and rustic and the outdoor ceremony site was exactly what we were looking for. We even changed our wedding date so that we could have it at Taharaa and are so glad that we did. We couldn't imagine it anywhere else, and many of our guests complimented us on the location and the beauty of the surroundings. Diane and all of her staff were very helpful during the planning process with vendor recommendations and suggestions for the timeline for the day. They were also accomodating of some special requests we had before the event. They exceeded our expectations on the day of the wedding, and helped to keep everything running smoothly and on-time as well as making sure that we (bride and groom) always had everything we needed and that we felt good about how things were progressing. Diane (the proprietor) was also very helpful on the night of our rehearsal, helping us with last minute details and suggestions. She made us feel very special during the entire weekend. There was no need to hire a day of wedding coordinator because Diane and her staff were fantastic. Taharaa is a bed-and-breakfast which has a 2-3 night minimum stay, and there were not enough rooms for all 125 guests. The great room fit all of the guests comfortably for the reception, but there were not enough rooms in the lodge for all guests to stay in the same place. Fortunately Mary's Lake Lodge is only about 1 mile away and most of our guests were able to stay there. We would definitely recommend Taharaa for a beautiful mountain wedding! Diane and her team will ensure the day goes as perfect as possible! We look forward to returning to Taharaa to celebrate an anniversary.

The venue was beautiful and the staff was so helpful! It was almost like having a wedding planner. On the day of the wedding I did not have to worry about much because the venue took care of everything! Diane, the owner was so kind and I highly recommend Taharaa.

This was my reception venue and was absolutely beautiful! I loved that there were no other events going on the same day as my wedding, so it felt very exclusive. It was, however, very expensive and I didn't like that secret fees kept appearing through other vendors, like the caterer. They were also not very accommodating toward some of my guests. Definitely a beautiful setting, though!

The views are magnificent and the place is gorgeous. I know it was hard for us to find a place that would accommodate the number of people we wanted.

That's about where I would stop with the good review. Looking back on our experience, I have fond memories of our wedding and reception. I think part of the problem was that we were the first big wedding in the Great Hall at Taharaa. I have been told by a few different people that the people who run Taharaa made some unforgivable comments (ie at 8:30 the music was "too loud" when we were allowed to have music going until 10, or that my step-dad wasn't allowed to have a Taharaa mug from his room in the Great Hall with him.) Luckily our guests had no idea of the frustrations we had, and all had a great time.

I'm not sure if it was the fact that we were the first ones having our wedding reception at their site, of if they are still that uptight, but I was disappointed. So, like I said, the views and site itself are beautiful, but the service was less than stellar.
