I had my ceremony and reception at the Crags Lodge a few weeks ago, and I must say that my wedding was absolutely perfect! The weather was beautiful and it complimented the rustic scenery and the mountains so well. I loved that my fiance and I were able to customize the Crags Lodge so that it was tailored specifically to our wedding. Since the lodge only hosts one wedding a day, it felt like we had the lodge to ourselves which made it very special. Keelee and her staff do an excellent job in accomodating everyone and being all around helpful! The food was fantastic, the venue was excellent, and everyone at my wedding complimented me on the venue and how much fun they had. Keelee is the best wedding coordinator you can work with in Estes. She responds quickly to emails or phone calls and is so patient with brides as they work out all of the details of their special day. In addition, the value of the Crags Lodge is the best in Estes Park in my opinion. Everything that you get with your package is incredible for the money you spend. I would highly reccomend any couple looking to get married in Estes to have their wedding at the Crags. I would also reccomend that you book rooms at the lodge for your bridal party and guests to stay. It makes things so easy and all the more fun that everyone is staying together! Thank you Keelee and everyone at the Crags Lodge for making our wedding day so special. We will remember it forever!

Having the ceremony outside of Crags Lodge was absolutely beautiful. Perfect scenery in the background. The reception inside The View restaurant was equally beautiful. Perfect rustic setting for a mountain wedding. Keelee, the coordinator, is wonderful to work with and takes care of all the details. Would definitely recommend!

I am so glad that I found this venue for our wedding. It is a beautiful location up in Estes and is reasonably priced. Keelee was extremely helpful and always responded quickly when I had questions. She was also very accommodating for any special requests that we had. She was very flexible and it was comforting to have an option to have the ceremony either inside or outside. Luckily we were able to have the ceremony outside, and everything went smoothly. The food was great and I loved the atmosphere. We had a great time at our wedding and would definitely recommend this location to others!

I cannot say enough about the Crags. It is one of the most affordable places in Estes Park, and definitely one of the most beautiful. The Crags has a great space for a reception - there is a lobby with couches, a bar, a large reception space, outdoor decks and a lawn - there is a place for everyone and plenty of space to spread out. We ended up having our ceremony inside and it, too, was beautiful, with the full window wall behind us looking out at the mountains.

Throughout the whole planning process, Keelee was very accessible and prompt in responding (most of the time she responded the same day!). She helped with decorations, menus, and planning for the whole day. When the Colorado floods threatened to cancel our wedding all together, and the government shutdown made us change our ceremony location to the Crags at the last minute, she wasn't phased at all and worked with us through the entire process. The Crags is a great venue, but Keelee really is the best thing about the Crags! My wedding went off perfectly because of her. Thanks, Keelee!

If you are looking for a place to stay, get married, have a reception or all the above we highly recommend The Historic Crags Lodge as they are a professional and highly recommended place in Estes Park that will make you feel like you are home away from home. The Hotel staff is amazing and will help in any way they can. Not only did we stay here but had our ceremony and reception at the Crags.
We cannot say enough about the Crags but what truly makes this place special for a wedding is Keelee as she will make you feel like family from the moment you meet her. I am happy to say that we were the first couple to be married at The Historic Crags Lodge after the flood happened and were so glad we were able to as the day was perfect and the views were breath taking. The reception we had inside the Crags at The View Restaurant. The views inside the restaurant are just as beautiful as the outside as it overlooks Estes Park with the food being delicious and served in antique chafing dishes. Thank you to the Historic Crags Lodge, View Restaurant and Keelee for making it the most memorable day of our lives.

I am so thankful that I found this beautiful gem in the mountains to host my wedding reception at. It has such a classic feel to it. Not only was the venue itself beautiful, but the view was great too. The food was amazing and very reasonably priced. Everyone was very professional and the whole night went very smoothly. In addition, their event coordinator at the Lodge, Keelee, was absolutely amazing to work with. She always thought of everything and had a "motherly touch" to make sure that we both felt very well taken care of. I would absolutely recommend this venue to anyone who is thinking about getting married in the mountains!

This is the perfect venue for a rustic mountain wedding! All our guests were from out-of-state, and everyone was impressed with the whole mountain experience of beautiful Estes Park, the view from the restaurant, and rustic-style log cabin etc.

The setup of the restaurant was perfect. There's a separate bar room to host appetizers. The outdoor patio, balconies, and rustic lobby provided plenty of space for guest to "hang out". Our guests really enjoyed the view as I noticed many of them spent lots of time on the balconies.

I agree with other reviews that Keelee is the best thing about this place. She is so caring and prompt! She regularly emailed me before the wedding to check if she could help with anything. I never once had to worry! When we forgot to bring colored pens for the guestbook, Keelee promptly founded us a bunch to use. She was very flexible with special requests.

The FOOD was AMAZING! As a bride, I thought I'd be too distracted to eat much during dinner (I'm a slow eater). Turned out I was starving and devoured my whole plate! It was DELICIOUS!! The salmon with orange sauce was moist and the roast prime rib was tender and juicy! My guests were impressed that they didn't have to choose between salmon and steak and had both.

The Crags Lodge front lawn/ ceremony area just got upgraded to a even more spectacular mountain view, since demolishing an older part of the building in Spring of 2013. We had some great photo opts with the wedding party there.

Lastly, the price is very reasonable and affordable compared to other Estes Park venues such as the Stanley and Bella Terra. I highly recommended The View restaurant for a memorable wedding experience!
