This weekend my husband and I got married-- it was absolutely amazing and a lot of the credit goes to Taharaa and their fabulous staff. Metta and Terisa are the best duo. Their attention to detail, great listening skills, calmness and professionalism blew us away. On top of that, their location is the most gorgeous of all the venues we toured. It was seriously the most picture perfect weekend. Thank you Taharaa team--we loved every minute and appreciate all of the work you guys did for us!

We had our wedding at Taharaa a few weeks ago and it was AWESOME. The staff is so friendly and easy to work with, I had very few day-of-wedding concerns. All the wedding guests had a great time, and the people who stayed at the lodge were VERY glad that they did. The breakfast is awesome! Restaurant quality for sure - and different options every day! The views from Taharaa are amazing, and it's nice that it's a few miles from downtown Estes. The staff strives to create your wedding that suits your personalities and your needs. They made improvements on the ceremony site which worked out really well. A great vendor; I would definitely recommend them to other engaged couples.

I think every bride says this, but I had the best wedding EVER and Taharaa was such a big part of the day's perfection! From the day that I expressed interest in the lodge the staff was professional, helpful and downright AWESOME! Our party spent the entire weekend at the lodge. Friday night started off with a warm welcome followed by an intimate happy hour. The day of the wedding, we woke up to a restaurant style breakfast that was delicious and started the day off perfectly. One of the most amazing parts of the day was the lack of stress I felt. Taharaa took care of everything from communicating with the vendors to setting up the reception. I was so impressed by their organization and accountability that I did not feel that I needed to micro manage the set up of anything and neither did my parents or the bridal party. The night was simply perfect and everything I had hoped for.

The Taharaa Mountain Lodge was absolutely gorgeous. We could not have asked for a more beautiful setting or a more helpful staff. We knew that we wanted to get married in Estes Park and the Taharaa was the first of at least 6 venues that we looked at, but none of the others were as perfect. We had many of our guests stay at the lodge and they all loved it. They were so pleased with their rooms, the service, the views, and the atmosphere.
Metta, Terisa, and Josh were so incredibly helpful- not only the day of the wedding, but the months leading up to it. They even welcomed myself and a bridesmaid to go and look through past wedding books to get decoration ideas. Metta and Terisa were amazing with emailing and communicating. They both did such an incredible job with the decorations. The reception hall looked so beautiful- they did a perfect job. If you choose Taharaa as your venue, there is no way you will regret it.

I couldn't have asked for a better venue and team for our July 5th wedding. The Tracy Family and Terisa listened to everything my husband and I wanted and were very flexible and accomodating. The rehearsal and wedding day went off without a hitch and everything went perfectly. I didn't have to worry about anything on the day of the wedding because I knew that it was being taken care of by the Taharaa staff. They set up all of my decorations for me exactly how I specified, coordinated all of the vendors, and knew exactly what they were doing. I initially was worried since we had signed our contract with the previous owners, but I was not disappointed. In fact, I think the owner change turned out even better for us. Thank you so much for everything! We will definitely be coming back to stay many years to come to relive the many unforgettable memories made there!

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!

My husband and I could not have asked for a better reception venue and staff for our wedding. Taharaa's staff went ABOVE and BEYOND to ensure that our wedding reception was everything we dreamed it would be.

Leading up to the wedding, they were always friendly and willing to answer our questions. They made payments simple and they were very flexible with how we wanted the hall set up for the reception. They allowed us to decorate the reception hall a day in advance so we didn't have to worry about it the morning of the wedding. They took copious notes and worked very closely with our caterer so when we entered the room for the first time as husband and wife, it was exactly how we pictured it.

The day of the wedding, they brought my bridesmaids and I breakfast in our room and checked in throughout the day to make sure everything was running smoothly. We were supposed to have a grand sparkler exit but it started pouring rain at the end of the night. So Taharaa's staff worked quickly and brought out bubbles they had left over for all of our guests and had them line up on their beautiful deck so we could "exit" through a sea of bubbles. It was nothing short of magical.

What we paid for the venue was well worth it when we look at the beauty of the venue, the responsiveness and professionalism of the staff and the flexibility they showed throughout the wedding planning process. I would recommend Taharaa to anyone who wants a beautiful and fun mountain wedding. Taharaa's staff WILL make it happen!

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.

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.

We loved our experience at a Taharaa Mountain Lodge. We planned our wedding in just 3 months and Metta, Terisa and the rest of Tracy family helped make that possible. We loved that Taharaa was a family-run operation and didn't feel like a "wedding factory" . They were so responsive with our questions and handled all the details with our vendors. I never felt like we were being hit with hidden fees and all costs were transparent and easy to understand. Day of Metta and Terisa handled all the little details so that I could spend time with my guests. Working with the Tracy family was a truly wonderful experience. The venue is stunning with beautiful mountain views from literally every room. The bridal suite is just what you'd imagine a bridal suite to be...large, 2 fireplaces, jetted tub etc; with plenty of room for all the folks/vendors coming and going that day. The guest rooms are beautiful and we had the whole place to ourselves. The afternoon happy hour and morning breakfast offer even more time to spend with guests staying on site. They also let us buy breakfast for guests staying at other locations so we could all be together the next without having to absorb yet another expense of a formal brunch.....it was perfect. I highly recommend Taharaa for a warm, rustic-yet-cozy Colorado wedding!

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.
