A great feature of the Estes Park Center is our guest lodging. We have a variety of hotel-style lodge rooms and large reunion cabins. Some of the things that bring guests back year after year are Rocky Mountain National Park as our back drop, the beautiful scenery, fun activities and friendly staff.

Greg officiated our wedding and he was an absolute pleasure to work with! He was warm, professional, and personable. We wanted our service to be based in the Christian faith however, we come from different denominations and wanted our wedding to truly feel as if two families were growing in unity and not being separated for our differences. Greg was very accommodating and provided a beautiful service. We were appreciate he took considerations like time and personal details into account when planning our ceremony. He was also very responsive to my emails and calls, not to mention understanding that we were unable to meet only a couple months prior to the wedding as my husband was deployed for the majority of our engagement! Greg was truly a blessing to us and we were lucky to have found him!

We had our daughter's wedding reception in the Walnut Room, after a wedding ceremony in Rocky Mountain National Park, where we used Estes Park Shuttle service to transport our guests to and from the YMCA. We planned the reception from Wisconsin, and Emily was so helpful and professional. The tasting we attended in the spring was amazing and really helped in the planning. It was a beautiful reception, and the YMCA was so accommodating for us and all of our guest in cabins and lodge rooms. We rented a large vacation home and everyone gathered there for nightly parties and breakfast!

Great Price Range. Ceremony and Reception Site $550!!!! Of course they had more expensive ones but I wasn't looking for that with a rustic-outdoor wedding. Emily is amazing, quick response and straight to the point. One catch, Catering has to be done through their food service. This was weird and where they get you in terms of money. I paid over a grand for a 50 person Hors d'oeuvres reception. Also I happened to be planning my wedding during a change of staff. My husband and I drove to see the banquets captain, instead of sampling or bringing up recipes from their kitchen she googled them. I lost confidence them right- then and there. Day of the wedding comes, everything is going great until we start running out of Hors d'oeuvres. I only have 50 people and most of them are tiny little things. 10 minutes before they are going to start tearing down the Hors d'oeuvres line, they bring out more 3 more trays of Hors d'oeuvres. Talk about fuming. Sorry. I will end here soon. Long story short. Great place, excellent venue price, bad catering experience.

We had our wedding at the YMCA of the Rockies this September and we couldn't have been happier with our decision. We planned our wedding from our home in California so we relied heavily on email and phone. Emily was very responsive and helpful throughout the entire 9 months we spent planning. We were married at the Overlook Chapel, which has the most breathtaking views. We were worried about parking for guests, but we asked people to carpool and it wasn't an issue. We used the Walnut Room for our reception, it is pretty much a blank slate and with simple decorations it looked beautiful. The food was delicious, we got multiple comments from guests about how good they thought it was, especially the mashed potatoes and prime rib. The staff was friendly and helpful. All of our guests stayed at the venue, either in cabins or in the Aspen Lodge. Everyone was happy with their accommodations and loved staying there. If you want to get married in Estes Park, the YMCA is a great option and a great value, you won't be disappointed.

The YMCA of the Rockies is probably the best kept Estes Park wedding venue! They did a fantastic job with my wedding coordination and the day of went absolutely smoothly thanks to them! Mid planning our wedding, the catering coordinator was changed (due to someone switching positions), so there was a period of time where they were not as responsive as I would have liked. There was however, always someone who could answer my question if my contact wasn't available. The scenery is absolutely the most perfect setting for a wedding and having a group cabin to gather before and after the big moments was great, and something I really appreciated! We loved having a home away from home to call our own. We had a destination wedding without having to pay exorbitant airline fares! I absolutely recommend the YMCA of the Rockies Estes Park Center-great location, excellent service, and fantastic prices!!

If you're looking for a DIY affordable wedding venue with spectacular views, the YMCA is the place. We chose Estes Park Center because of it's location, the views and the ability to keep all of our guests in one area. Emily (events coordinator), Sara (banquets manager) and Joey (banquets) were wonderful to work with over the eight months of the planning, however I don't think I was introduced to anyone when we got down there. It would've been nice to meet them face to face. Nonetheless, everyone over at the YMCA in Estes Park was very communicable and responsive - especially Joey. I had met Joey prior to our reception during our tasting and she was amazing. Always on top of things and very clear communication the whole time and I always felt she was there to answer questions and make sure things went smoothly. Our ceremony was at the new Overlook Chapel off of Mountainside Drive and the day couldn't have been more perfect. It's generally quite windy up there, however on our special day the winds died down and provided breathtaking views of Rocky Mountain National Park. The reception staff was fantastic. During set up, they were generally easy to find and were able to provide us with some odd requests. Very laid-back venue, perfect for outdoor weddings. The food was outstanding and at such a value. Overall, I would recommend this venue to anyone and everyone who is looking for an outdoor, rustic, one-of-a-kind wedding in the summer or fall. Just be prepared to put in a lot of work!

We had our ceremony at The Overlook at YMCA of the Rockies. The views are so breathtaking and the price was a steal. All of our guests were in awe of how beautiful it was. The weather did not cooperate for our wedding day, which was a bit of a bummer since it is an uncovered, outdoor venue, but we muscled through wind, rain, and even some hail because it was worth it for us to have those beautiful panoramic views as the backdrop for our photos on our wedding day.

Emily is the events coordinator at YMCA of the Rockies. She was very responsive and a pleasure to work with. She is very accommodating and helpful in getting you what you want for your wedding day. There are several different scenic overlooks and chapels to choose from on site, which is great because you have different options to get exactly what you want from their property as a ceremony/reception venue. The Overlook did not have any electricity available, so if that is important to you, it is something you should definitely consider. We bought a small/portable, wireless, battery operated sound system for about $150.00 to use up there and it worked wonderfully for us. We just couldn't pass up on the opportunity to have the amazing scenery The Overlook provides for our special day.
