We had an amazing wedding! Our wedding was in the meadow and we got lucky with a beautiful day. The staff was always extremely friendly every time we called or emailed with questions before our big day. Our wedding day went smooth and all our guests remarked to us that we picked a great location. Our reception was in the Copeland room and the food was wonderful and everyone enjoyed their time. We had about 30 guests and the room was the perfect size; it didn’t feel too big or too small. Dana was great to work with; she tried to keep us on schedule without us feeling like we were a burden to her or the staff. We also had our dog Monte in the wedding and the staff loved him and welcomed him just like all the other guests. Everyone was just easy to work with and that made us feel just extremely comfortable and less stressed on our wedding day. We highly recommend Wild Basin Lodge!!!

I got married at WBL this past August, and cannot stop raving about this place!! My husband and I are originally from the midwest, and being outside surrounded by mountains, rivers, and aspen trees is exactly what we wanted for our big day, to show our families why we love it out here. This place truly has it all. The staff at WBL (especially Dana, Tiffnie and Denice) are beYOND helpful and accommodating. From our first tour 2 weeks after we got engaged to the day after our big day, they were the most supportive, patient, and kind-hearted women to work with. Not once did I feel like I was asking too many questions. They kept us up to date on our estimate, to the penny, any time I'd requested any changes. They are all professionals, but also relaxed and fun to be around. The always replied to my emails and phone calls promptly leading up to everything. I had a different vendor that once I signed the contract and gave a deposit, I didn't hear from them until 3 months before the wedding (despite me attempting to contact via phone and email). NOT HERE, even to this day, months after our wedding, I am still in contact with WBL and they still are as courteous as ever. And on our big day, they were on TOP of everything. I'd hear a glass break in the distance, and someone was immediately there with a dust pan. They kept the evening running on schedule so we didn't have to worry about who was supposed to be where, when. The food was extraordinary! I am 100% Italian, and Chef Nick had all of our guests full and asking for recipes. We chose the river site for our ceremony, and we have 3 dogs - our favorite part of the WBL is how dog friendly they are! Though not allowed into the lodge (health codes, people) they were given free reign of the property - which truly allowed for some breath taking photos. The inside of the lodge is so tastefully done, too, I didn't have to pay all this extra money for flowers! The huge windows allowed guests to see the mountains and river, and the

Of all the vendors that I worked with in planning my August 2012 wedding in the Estes Park area, the Wild Basin Lodge was- hands down- the best. The staff was extremely responsive to emails and phone calls; they were helpful, detail oriented and down to Earth. They really thought of everything and acted as the day-of coordinators, and the entire day went off without a hitch. Our guests raved about the food (the in-house chef is a culinary mastermind) and the venue. It is elegant, cozy and intimate and highlights the natural beauty of Colorado with mountains, rivers, and aspen trees in its backdrop/on site. I can't say enough positive things about my experience with the Wild Basin Lodge- from the first time we saw it, to the tasting day (come hungry and bring friends…it is SOO fun!) to the wedding weekend itself, we were in safe hands at the Wild Basin Lodge. They are top notch.

Our only challenge in having our wedding there was securing ample accommodations for our ample out-of-town friends and family throughout the area during high season. The Wild Basin Lodge has only 6 rooms, and we had a lot of out-of-town guests in for the event. We ended up renting an entire Bed & Breakfast and 5 cabins in Allenspark (all very close to the Wild Basin Lodge), putting friends and family in two other hotels in Estes Park, and coordinating transportation between them all. In the end it paid off because everyone stayed in venues which suited their budgets and needs, then felt at-home at the Wild Basin during our wedding day and again at morning-after breakfast. I loved my experience with them and would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a classic yet one of a kind Colorado wedding.

There is nothing bad I can say about Wild Basin Lodge and Event Center! They made my wedding an even more incredible and fairy tale experience than I could have ever imagined! Their facilities are amazing, the food was incredible, and the scenery, simply breathtaking. It is an investment to be sure, but I wouldn't have had my wedding anywhere else for any less. You get ten times what you pay for! But, all of this pales in comparison to the incredible service! You feel apart of their family! If there by chance is anything you need or want (because they have already thought of EVERYTHING!) they are right there to support you and keep your nerves down. They manage to keep the entire process stress free. For example, I had chosen to have my seating done by table instead of alphabetical, which I learned could stop up the seating process. Wild Basin organized it for me on the day of the wedding, and alphabetized everything before the guests got there. They also provided me with a bridal ready room which was AWESOME. All of my girls, the Mom's and the hair and make-up vendors could get ready comfortably and it made the experience even more fun. Wild Basin had tea and coffee waiting for us when we arrived at 7am, and also champagne for later! The staff seemed as excited for my wedding as I was! And when the wedding was over and my husband and I went up to our Honeymoon suite, they had made up our dinner for us again with more cake and champagne! Can you say spoiled! They were an absolute pleasure to work with! I would recommend Wild Basin Lodge and Event Center to anyone who desires a beautiful mountain wedding! The facilities, the service, and the view cannot be beat!

My family, husband, and I cannot stop talking about Wild Basin Lodge and how PERFECT it was throughout our entire wedding experience. First, the venue is beautiful, inside and out. They give you full use of their property for photos the day of the wedding, without restriction. We chose to have our ceremony at the river amphitheater, but were still able to wander out to the meadow to take photos. We have countless emails to and from the WBL staff - they are always prompt and professional, and oh-so flexible! Denice, Dana, and Tiffnie were always over-the-top helpful and caring about our needs, especially on our wedding day! I did not stress about anything (even when we found out we didn't bring our sand ceremony supplies - they had one at the lodge, in our wedding colors!). The pricing was comparable to other similar venues, and the big bonus is that they provide the food. So there is no separate venue/catering costs, it's just a straight per-person fee for reception/food. And their food is phenomenal. We had chicken and steak served family-style (best idea ever!), and we had guests asking for seconds (especially on the mashed potatoes). Anyway - BEST. WEDDING. VENUE. EVER. My family will not stop talking about it, and I can't stop thinking about it. HIGHLY recommended!! <3 Travis and Cindi

The Wild Basin was my dream wedding location. They were so great in helping me plan, and accommodating me in my most Bridezilla moments. Every member of the staff seemed as thrilled as I was to be helping me with my wedding and reception, and whenever I had questions or even just needed an opinion they were quick to respond. I couldn’t ask for a better venue, and anyone should feel thrilled to exchange vows at this gorgeous spot!

Celebrating our 15 year Vow Renewal at the Wild Basin Lodge was ideal because Denice and her staff took care of EVERYTHING! I believe someone at WBL walks around with a computer strapped to their hip, because our emails received immediate replies and we never had to wait for an answer to anything! Whatever we dreamed up to request, Denice and her staff made it happen! Though our Anniversary date was already reserved for a new couple's wedding, we were able to hold our vow renewal in the morning so our events didn't conflict. Our informal walk down memory lane was simple, stress free and enjoyable! We especially appreciated the personalized manner in which each staff member treated us, despite special requests for our favorite desserts and the 'un-wedding' approach we took to our event. Specifically, when it came time for our Officiant and daughter, 9 year old Bella, to take the stage, of course she was hesitant to stand alone in front of our guests. Our wedding coordinator Tiffnie stepped in and volunteered to walk Bella down the aisle so she wouldn't be alone! Brought tears to my eyes and warmth to Bella's heart that she had a friend to walk with! We truly felt like ours was the only special event on the calendar! I wish we knew of WBL the first time around, in 1997…
Thank you for helping us celebrate enduring love!

My husband and I got married at Wild Basin in June 2012, and it was truly the best day of our lives. We had the rehearsal dinner and the wedding and wedding reception at the lodge. I simply cannot say enough great things about Wild Basin Lodge and especially the staff, they were wonderful! Dana and Tiffnie were amazing on the wedding day, seeing to every detail and making sure everything ran smoothly. We all felt so welcome and special! Everyone was so sweet and accommodating but also very professional. I sent so many emails with questions and concerns, and they were answered promptly and thoroughly each time (thanks, Dana, Tiffnie, Hillary, and Denice!). Every detail was thought of and reviewed with us, and they were very organized down to the last detail. The chef is so talented, the food was amazing and we received lots of compliments on the dinner and the rehearsal dinner the night before. The bartender, Adrian, was also very polite and great to work with. We had a lot of compliments from our guests on how friendly and capable the staff was. I felt like the whole wedding weekend could not have gone any better or more smoothly, we concentrated on our vows and having a great time with our families and friends and did not have to worry about the details of the day.
The lodge is so beautiful, and we had our ceremony down at the riverside amphitheater. My family and I stayed in the lodge rooms and honeymoon suite Friday and Saturday night, and the views were fantastic! You can hear the river from your room, and it is so peaceful to wake up to in the morning. The lodge was also very pretty and clean and the staff was very welcoming and helpful to us. It has a cozy mountain feel and lots of beautiful natural wood. I would love to stay here again!
Overall, we were so impressed from our very first meeting with Dana and the staff at Wild Basin Lodge. They seem to really love what they do and enjoy working with couples and people in general. They go out of their way to make sure your event is special and personal, and they pay attention to all of the tiniest details. They are also professional, and we felt like we were in capable hands at all times. I felt completely comfortable and trusted the staff at Wild Basin Lodge with our wedding day, and they could not have done a better job! We spent the day enjoying being with each other and family and friends and had no worries the whole time. It was absolutely wonderful- thank you so much everyone! I highly recommend Wild Basin Lodge for your wedding or special event!

Thank you, Laurie and Matt Niedermiller

I've had the pleasure of working with Wild Basin Lodge both as a photographer, and as a father-of-the-bride when my daughter was married there. It's an incredible venue with the perfect combination of a stunning mountain setting, beautiful lodge and a wonderful staff. And their chef is world class. Meghan's wedding experience at Wild Basin was perfect...just absolutely perfect.
