The resort itself is beautiful and in a great setting but it was the staff that made my son and daughter in law's wedding reception perfect. The Chef was outstanding and Kevin and Sophia (Management Staff) could not have been more supportive or worked harder. The reception was a complete success and the entire staff from management to servers were accommodating and had great "can do" attitudes. I can highly recommend the Estes Park Resort.

I had my June wedding at the Estes Park Resort and I couldn't be happier. They were always very responsive and flexible to make sure my day was everything I had envisioned. The event coordinator, wedding coordinator, servers, bartenders, front desk workers (basically everyone!) was so helpful and professional. The Estes Park Resort made my wedding weekend one that I will always remember!!

Working with Meghan was great. She was so friendly and accommodating. We had such a perfect spot in the ballroom that overlooks the lake. The resort itself was remodled just before our wedding day and it looked so nice. The food was tasty. Everyone enjoyed their meal. And my crowd would've commented if they didn't like something!

The staff was great and attentive. Things flowed so easy before and during the wedding reception. And the deck makes for some awesome pictures. Meghan walked me through everything and we came up with the best value. This place is well worth the money and was much less than places that didn't nearly have the views, the location, the nice rooms and the people.

This place should be a must on your list to consider!

Thanks for the wonderful memories!

We had our wedding here in May 2014 and it was amazing. Jamie, Caitlin and the staff at the Estes Park resort are incredibly responsive, accommodating and friendly. From a year out, up to the date of the event, they treated us as if our wedding was their top priority. The view is amazing and one of the best in Estes Park. Though the weather in Colorado can be a bit of a gamble in May, we were incredibly relaxed on the day of our event and knew if it rained (or snowed), the staff had a backup plan and would make our event just as beautiful and memorable.

The food was great. I wish that there had been drink packages available instead of by the drink pricing, but that is about the only piece of constructive criticism I can offer. This was a fantastic place to have our wedding and we look forward to returning soon!

A beautiful venue for my sister's wedding. The event coordinator was very sweet, easy to work with and very accommodating. I would caution any future brides - the room was not ready when we arrived to begin setting up. There was a wedding in that room the night before. We were told we could arrive at 8:00 a.m. to begin our set up. We arrived at 9:00 a.m., but the room wasn't ready until 10:00 a.m. Otherwise, the food was great and the people were wonderful. It was a great event.

Venue is beautiful. Views off the lake are amazing for a day wedding. Cost is reasonable and the food is incredible. They were very accommodating and we only had few problems with our day. Our concerns were that the head server (red headed older lady) was awful. She was rude to the head table twice and snotty for a majority of the event. Our other problem was they tried charging us for leftover alcohol after the ceremony. We weren't informed of this while signing the contract and they up charged the price an outrageous account. When my husband called them out they quickly backtracked and made it right. Over all we were happy with the venue and would refer others.

The planning process and the event planner were wonderful and prepared us for a wonderful wedding experience. There were some issues months prior to the event such as duplicate charges on the credit card which were reversed, but was quite unprofessional. The ceremony itself was wonderful and a beautiful event for all who attended. Evidently the air conditioning system had gone down prior to the wedding and nothing was done to fix it. For that reason the reception venue was quite hot throughout the entire evening. It seemed there were no attempts to solve the heat problem as no fans were brought out nor was a technician called. After having paid the amount we had, we felt we and our guests should not have had to experience the excessive heat in the reception area. Many of our guests stayed out on the balcony and did not join in events due to the heat in the room. When addressing this issue after the fact there were no accommodations made to us for this inconvenience.

BEAUTIFUL LOCATION is about the only positive thing that I can say about this venue. Nice room, and great food. For a wedding venue, though, we had so many prob,lems mostly dealing with inexperienced staff. A couple of weeks before my wedding, the coordinator I had been working with left, and the original marketing/sales lady that I had dealt with was also out for the next couple of months. I was told that we could easily plug in an iPhone to play music outside for the ceremony, and even confirmed this with the new coordinator weeks in advance, but at 8:00 on Friday night (when my wedding was at 11:00 the next morning), she did not have any way to play music outside! Then we went inside to see how to set up the music in the reception room, and she couldn’t get that to work either. Also in the reception room, she couldn’t get the fireplace to work. Back in our room, my maid of honor tried to call the front desk, and ask them to please have the coordinator call me when she first got in the next morning, and we discovered that the phone in the room didn’t work. And the coordinator never did call me the next morning. I didn’t see her until a minute before my ceremony, when my guests were already seated, and she was sweeping up leftover rose petals in the aisle from a wedding the previous day. At the reception, we had to argue with a server to get a bottle of wine. When it was all over, and we went to check out the next morning, our bill was a mess, and has yet to be resolved, almost two weeks later. One disappointment after another. It all boils down to young people with no experience. This is such a beautiful establishment, and has the potential to be fabulous. But a “resort,” it is not. A nice hotel, at best. Not at all equipped to handle weddings and other important formal events. I believe that if they were to hire a mature and truly experienced manager, they could turn it around and be great. Until then, I’m sorry to say, it’s a joke.
