Wild Basin Lodge is truly outstanding! The lodge and surrounding areas are beautiful. Both ceremony sites are gorgeous – although we are partial to the meadow as we just got married there! This time of year there are wild flowers everywhere, the mountains in the background, and fresh mountain air. The scenery was perfect for our outdoor wedding. Even more important, the staff at Wild Basin Lodge is unbeatable. Denice (the owner) is incredible. She answered my endless emails leading up the wedding, and was very accommodating during the rehearsal and wedding. Dana was our wedding coordinator and she was flawless. She even handled my minor freak-out about a change in plans without blinking – and she didn’t spill the beans that the plan change was due to a surprise horse drawn carriage from my dad! Throughout the entire wedding day the staff at Wild Basin Lodge was on top of everything but also behind the scenes. The food service was fast and the food was absolutely delicious! We heard several comments that the trout was the best people had ever had. At the end of the night the staff helped clean up, and the next morning they helped carry presents out to our car. Everyone is so friendly. We could not have found a more exceptional wedding venue and truly hope to keep in touch with everyone at Wild Bain Lodge! Thank you for making our wedding perfect!

This is a beautiful venue with attentive staff that make the day flow effortlessly and wonderfully. They took such amazing care of us and our guests. The food is top notch. People can't stop talking about it and we can't imagine our day going any better than it did. This is a very special place near Rocky Mountain National Park with amazing views. The food is local, organic and extremely high quality. They compost and recycle, which is very important to us. The lodging was convenient for the wedding party and extremely comfortable and nice, with beautiful surroundings and fun activities. We had an amazing day and are so happy with how everything went.

Hands down the best place ever for a wedding. The setting is simply amazing (got married at the riverside site). The lodge is beautiful. My guests adored it as much as I did.The staff is top notch in every single way. Customer service is a key value here and it shows. The attention to detail is exacting. Everyone is so kind and helpful. I never could have made it through the day without Theresa. She went way out of her way to keep everything on track and get us where we needed to be. Denice is simply awesome. Every single interaction over the year-and-a-half of planning that went into my event was handled with care and warmth. I love the place - I'd become their first full-time lodger if they'd have me!! You can't go wrong with picking Wild Basin for your wedding. I would sing their praises from every fourteener in the area!

My husband and I chose Wild Basin Lodge and Event Center for our wedding this past May and we were delighted with every aspect of the experience! Denice, Angela, Teresa and everyone else on the staff were professional and friendly from the moment they welcomed us on our first visit. And they totally lived up to their promise that there would be no "surprises" with regard to the services and the expense of our wedding experience. This resulted in a wonderful, stress-free wedding, as they took care of every detail. We especially want to compliment them on their organization of the day, and the quality and presentation of the food. We chose the menu after attending a fun (and delicious!) food tasting a month before the wedding. They were extremely accommodating with all of our special requests and made sure that every guest received what they wanted. They also took great care in managing the timing of each step of our day, from making sure my daughters and I had everything we needed in the beautiful "Bride's Changing Room", to keeping track of the timing for the hors d'oeuvres, ceremony, photos, dinner, and dancing. Needless to say, we were extremely happy with our choice of Wild Basin to host the most wonderful day of our life together, and recommend it without reservation.

The Wild Basin Lodge is an absolute slice of heaven! There is so much I can say about it:

--The mountain location is spectacular and we knew immediately it was where we wanted to get married. At the river ceremony site, the sound of the water replaced the music for our ceremony and it made for a perfect setting.
--The lodge's staff is incredibly attentive, friendly, and very prepared. Their attention to detail, timeliness, and experience made the day worry-free.
--The food was absolutely wonderful, and the chef received a standing ovation from my guests!
--We used one of their package deals, and we didn't have to worry about hiring any vendors. The vendors they provided (flowers, cake, photographer) were amazing to work with and everything was perfect.

Wild Basin is the all-around perfect place to have a wedding!

We got married at WBL in October and it was EXCEPTIONAL! Our experience and wedding was beyond our wildest dreams!

We’ve heard over and over again that this was the best venue and wedding our guests have ever gone to! The food and the food tasting experience was amazing!! We got married by the river and it was spectacular! The staff was fantastic to work with - I was a nervous bride and they really eased my fears and took care of the smallest details! I appreciated the one on one attention and continual communication. We looked a lot of places in Estes and surrounding areas and seriously, we would HIGHLY recommend this place to everyone!

Since we were doing a destination wedding to Colorado from Michigan, we did as much planning on the trip we had taken a year before the wedding as we could. When we first visited Wild Basin Lodge we knew it was where we wanted to have our ceremony and reception. Denice and the staff at the Lodge were very warm and welcoming from the first e-mail we sent all the way up to the day after. Everybody was very approachable and willing to help out in any way that they could.
We were originally going to have an outdoor wedding, but because of a downturn in temperatures and our harpist not being able to play outside below 50 degrees, Denice helped us figure out an alternative plan which resulted in us having our ceremony in front of the fire place in the main entrance to the lodge. With only 25 people it was cozy but not overly so.
Also, the food was phenomenal. We did the dual platted option of Wild Alaskan Salmon baked with a teriyaki glaze as well as the Buffalo with the Wild Berry Demiglaze and goat cheese mashed potatoes. We had a few people that were very picky on salmon, both from liking a well cooked salmon fillet as well as those that didn't like it at all, and everybody loved the salmon.
If we had to do it all over again, I would certainly choose to have our wedding at Wild Basin Lodge in a heartbeat!
