I can't say enough about Wild Basin Lodge. It is an absolutely beautiful location, with the kindest people you will ever meet. Denise, in particular, played a key part in even making my wedding possible! Three months before the wedding, we had some severe financial concerns and considered postponing everything. When I talked with Denise, she personally sat down with me and helped figure out how we could make the wedding happen. Everywhere else we had looked, people basically told us that this is the biggest day of your life and you should plan on spending accordingly. Denise told us that this is a big day, but it shouldn't put you in debt for the next five years of your life. She helped us determine where to spend our money and what was really unnecessary. She went above and beyond to make it the best day of my life (thus far), without bankrupting us. In the end, it absolutely felt like a million dollar wedding! Not only that, but the folks at Wild Basin take care of almost EVERYTHING!! I was not interested in micro-managing, so it was such a relief to find a place that covers details you wouldn't even think to consider. I could go on and on, so I'll make the rest short and sweet:

-BEAUTIFUL scenery, great for pictures!
-Wonderful people
-Delicious food
-Top notch service
-Dedication to making the bride and groom happy!
-Gorgeous scenery
-Wildlife!
-Extremely inclusive
-Kind employees
-Beautiful surroundings...did I mention that already?
-Denise and Nils! (owners)

We knew the first time we saw the Wild Basin Lodge that we had found our perfect location, and the first time we met the staff that we could have a beautiful wedding that was “us.” Everything went so well that I am still in awe. The staff was so easy to work with during the planning and helped to keep the day so relaxed. Guests are still telling us about the food, and those who couldn’t come are now regretting it. Our wedding will obviously always be special to us but because of The Wild Basin we didn’t have to give up our lives to planning.

Everyone told me that I would cry when I found my dream dress. I hated shopping for my dress. But, I did burst into tears when we met Denise at Wild Basin. We were planning a small wedding (only 30 guests) and she was willing to bend over backwards for every small request that we had. The location is breathtakingly beautiful. The staff is top notch. The food is amazing. The staff at Wild Basin was responsible for making our wedding day the day of our dreams.

For one, the venue was wonderful. Picture a minature red rocks amphitheater with a creek running behind the stage (really the deck). Very picturesque. There is also a meadow area. If you do not want to be outside, there are two indoor venues or you can rent the whole lodge. There are enough rooms for a small extended family. All rooms have views of the creek. Denise and Nils (the owners) are extremely sweet and helpful. They are flexible to your needs and the staff is very helpful as well. For the price there is a lot of value: you have the venue, the tables/chairs/table settings, and catering included. You are responsible for the decorations and the cake (if you do any of this yourself you can save a little here.) The staff will help take down decor for you as well. My recommendation, if you can afford it is to at least rent out the rooms for two days, so that you can enjoy the experience of your wedding and the area. There is horse back riding close by and hiking. Estes Park and National Forest are only 20 minutes away. (FYI, this is more like a B&B; very mom and pop; if you want the over the top hotel experience this is not it; BUT, if you want the outdoor, forest, colorado feel while only being about an hour from Denver...there is more lodging for guests in Estes Park...from higher end hotel, to cabins, condos and motels.) Congrats and enjoy your wedding!

I am 100% satisfied with our experience here - it was WONDERFUL!!
- Owner Denise and her husband are funny, sweet, down to earth and professional
- The grounds are gorgeous and natural (not overdone or overly manicured)
- The lodge is upscale rustic and natural, they are constantly making improvements!
- The 2 locations you can get married (ampitheater by river or the meadow) are gorgeous
- The honeymoon and regular suites are spacious, tastefully decorated and comfortable
- The food is DELICIOUS

I love that they do everything: they provide the cermony space, the reception space, the apps and food, the tables, linens, flatware, drinks, coffee, bar - you don't have to think of anything! You will have to get your own music and officiant but that's about it! Oh and invite your family and friends, haha :) You must go see this place - it is wonderful. And a good value for the price.

We had an outstanding experience with the staff and facility at Wild Basin. Denise and Nils were very professional and the entire staff met the needs of our guests with very friendly service. The food was excellent; my brother in law commented on the high quality and he is a French chef! My guests stayed in Estes Park, and I would suggest making early reservations for hotels to meet their needs. The scenery was exactly what we hoped for with the view of the mountains being lovely from the outside deck. We had photographs taken at the nearby lake that were show stoppers. Some of the extras included our own dinner later that night that was brought to our room, breakfast the next day and the offer to be able to return in the future. We have gone back to visit and Denise shared her time, wine and deck with us despite her busy schedule. My husband and I were looking for a beautiful, natural setting with easy elegance, and Wild Basin fit the bill. We will never forget our experience and the comfort of being able to rely on professionals to address all of our needs.

Our daughter, Mandy, was married at the Wild Basin on May 22, 2006. The idea of planning a wedding so far away was a concern for us, but with the staff's emails and phone calls, it became a little less of a concern. When we arrived, the staff made things even easier. They were all so kind and accommodating. I would like to say a huge “thank you” to the bridal coordinator for helping me so much when I was “about to lose it!” She were wonderful! All of you were so easy to work with. Wild Basin is so beautiful and we were glad our daughter chose the location to get married. Maybe someday we’ll make it back to Wild Basin!

WILD BASIN is soo beautiful! Our wedding day was PERFECT! We got married 5 yrs ago at Wild Basin Lodge...and just went there for 5th anniversary. Wild Basin is one of the most beautiful, peaceful, friendly and exquisite places to get married...and what an awesome place to return to celebrate your many anniversaries to come. The owners Denise & Nils are such incredible people they and their staff are awesome...they were so helpful & friendly. Our wedding was a beautiful experience that we and our guests said they would never forget.. the beauty of the Rocky Mountains (Mt. Copeland & Longs Peak, etc), the beautiful river..as well as the gorgeous lodge. It was a perfect romantic, yet comfortable setting for a very memorable day.. We couldn't have asked for more! We were so blessed and fortunate to have found Wild Basin & had the privilege of being married there.
