We could not be more thrilled with our wedding at Wild Basin Lodge! Our family and friends could not stop raving about the unique and breathtaking setting. The staff is simply amazing, they go above and beyond with everything that they do. They worked closely with us to make sure that our wedding day vision was achieved.

The lodge provided little touches that helped to make our day a unique event for everyone involved.

We truly felt adopted into the Wild Basin family, which made our day even more special. We were always greeted with a hug and a smile. Everyone is a team and it is clear that the employees take pride in their jobs.

The food was amazing, much, much more than your average 'wedding food'. The chef was so personable creating a custom sauce for us, and we loved that he served us our champagne to wish us well at the end of the night.

AMAZING place!

My husband and I got married at Wild Basin Lodge on July 16, 2014. Our wedding day was absolutely perfect! They made everything so stress-free, including the planning leading up to it. Whenever I had a question in the planning stage they always replied promptly and were very helpful in answering all of my queries/concerns. The day of the wedding they helped out with timing of events and organization (our wedding coordinator provided by the lodge was so much help!) so I was able to enjoy the wedding and not stress about the little things going on.
It rained on our wedding day - I think this is every bride's nightmare. However, because the lodge commits itself to only hosting one wedding per day they were very flexible with the start time of the ceremony/reception. We ended up starting dinner early so that we could do our pictures later after the rain let up at the suggestion of our coordinator. Plus they have a plethora of very cute clear umbrellas at their disposal so we ended up with a ton of neat wedding shots from the day to celebrate the rain.
The food prepared by the chef at Wild Basin was phenomenal! We upgraded one of our entrees to the stuffed chicken breast and had the other as the steak - they were both so delicious! Our guests were raving about the food to us after the wedding.
We stayed in the King Honeymoon Suite the night of the wedding. The suite was huge - the bed was so comfortable! It was luxurious and perfect for our wedding night.
Everyone at the lodge was professional, courteous, friendly, helpful and happy. We couldn't have asked for a better atmosphere for our wedding. It wouldn't have been the same without the wonderful staff working behind the scenes to make it all happen. All of our family and friends were impressed with the venue, the location and the staff. We would highly recommend this establishment to other couples looking for a unique and rustic-chic (what one of our guests termed it) location for a lovely mountain wedding.

I don't know if I could express the greatness of this venue and STAFF! Wild Basin Lodge is the best of the best! We were treated like family the second we arrived!! Being a out of state couple we were not able to see the venue before hand, this did not bother me one bit!! They provided me with unlimited amounts of advice and and photos via email.. There is not one email that wasn't answered with in 24 hours and I have A LOT, of them!! Besides the staff being the most amazing group of people the location is really out of a dream. It's so beautiful it takes your breath away. With the multiple locations to choose from on the property it's really hard to pick just one. Each spot has its own character and timeless beauty. WBL also provides package deals with photographer, flowers and officiants to choose from. This was awesome for me. The food was incredible, just incredible!! We had a tiny 11 person wedding and we can't wait to go back, renew our vows and show our friends and family where our dreams came true. Thank you WBL, you all are truly a great team!!!!!

My daughter and husband planned their destination wedding over a year ago. They were married June 14, 2014. My daughter and her husband are residents of Denver, family and guests traveled from all parts of the country to witness their special day.

IT WAS STRESS FREE! There are no words to describe the rehearsal, rehearsal dinner, the venue and the reception other than PERFECT.

Included in our package was a bridal manager who took care of us beginning with the rehearsal and throughout the reception. She was a LIFE SAVER!

Leading up to the wedding the staff was always accessible. My daughter scheduled the tasting six months prior to the wedding, many of our questions were answered that very day.

My daughter and son-in-law's wedding was a beautiful event, made even more memorable because our needs were taken care of by the caring and attentive staff at the Wild Basin Lodge. We could sit back, relax and enjoy their very special day with our closest family and friends. And that's exactly exactly how a wedding day should be.

Thank you Wild Basin Lodge for making my daughter's dream wedding a reality!! Perfection!

IT WAS STRESS FREE! There are no words to describe the rehearsal, rehearsal dinner, the venue and the reception other than PERFECT.

Included in our package was a bridal manager who took care of us beginning with the rehearsal and throughout the reception. She was a LIFE SAVER!

Leading up to the wedding the staff was always accessible. My daughter scheduled the tasting six months prior to the wedding, many of our questions were answered that very day.

My daughter and son-in-law's wedding was a beautiful event, made even more memorable because our needs were taken care of by the caring and attentive staff at the Wild Basin Lodge. We could sit back, relax and enjoy their very special day with our closest family and friends. And that's exactly exactly how a wedding day should be.

Thank you Wild Basin Lodge for making my daughter's dream wedding a reality!! Perfection! Read less

My husband and I were married at Wild Basin Lodge on 5/17/14. We consider ourselves very active, adventurous, and outdoorsy people who wanted to reflect that at our wedding. The WBL was the perfect site to capture the natural beauty and aura of the outdoors. The staff went above and beyond to accommodate any help they could offer, supplies, advice, service, and so much more for an out-of-town wedding. The days leading up to the wedding were so UN-stressful thanks to the staff at hand. I couldn't have asked for a better venue. Thank you WBL!

We looked at virtually every venue in Colorado online that fit our criteria and narrowed it down to six. We scheduled a visit with Wild Basin Lodge first. We sat on a bench in the meadow, fell in love with it, and planned our wedding, but we were hesitant to book the first place we looked at. We decided to look at two more the following weekend, but knew they couldn’t compare to the first place we saw. I am so glad we made that decision.

First of all, know that when you book with Wild Basin, you will be the only wedding on that day. That was very important to us. . Second, the views simply cannot be beat. Regardless of which outdoor venue you choose, you will have a spectacular setting that can only be found in the mountains of Colorado. Third, the vendors that come with the enhanced package are fantastic.

But most of all, I would recommend this venue for the people (Denise, Neils, Laura, etc.) They invest themselves personally in each and every wedding. It started to rain about a half hour before our ceremony and I panicked. Never fear: they are prepared. They provided clear umbrellas for each guest and wiped off the benches for them. OH, I shouldn’t forget to mention how delicious the food was. Everything was fantastic- and that’s coming from two chubby people with a discerning palate- but we settled for a dual plating of steak and cornish hen for the guests and rack of lamb for the wedding party. The lamb isn’t on the general tasting menu, but they will make it for you if you put in a request. It may be the single most divine thing I’ve ever tasted.

Everyone is different, but I can say this: If your goal is to have a beautiful Colorado wedding that everyone will remember and you want a staff who will genuinely care about you and your wedding beyond the check you write, I cannot recommend the Wild Basin Lodge enough. If it weren’t so stressful, I’d plan a wedding here every year just to experience it again.

Tim and I had our wedding at Wild Basin Lodge just this past Sunday, 4.27.14. It was such a great day! We had so much fun and that was mainly due to the staff at Wild Basin Lodge. I can't say enough about them! They were great! The only change that happened was the weather was not the best, so we had to change our outdoor ceremony to indoor. However, most of our guests told us they thought it was planned. The staff changed the ceremony so quickly. Everyone told us that the food was the best wedding food they ever had and everyone had so much fun. My husband and I couldn've have asked for a better place to have our wedding. Most importantly, my husband and I, had so much fun. Once we picked the venue, planning was so easy. Wild Basin Lodge has everything set for you, you just fill in the blanks. I would recommend Wild Basin Lodge to anyone planning a wedding in the Estes Park area. It is perfect! Thank you for making our day so special. Jodi & Tim Cook

My partner and I recently had our wedding at Wild Basin Lodge and had a truly lovely experience. The site is gorgeous, the food was delicious, and the planning process was professional and smooth. The owner and staff were all brilliant and super friendly and helpful. The food was so good that I couldn't imagine eating another bite after the yummy dinner...until the midnight snack came. It is a lovely place to retreat to for a celebration, and the attentive and detail oriented staff ensured that I didn't have to spend my time worrying, and I could just relax and enjoy the event. I recommend staying overnight - the lodge is cozy and tasteful. (Thank you Wild Basin!)
