Dream Venue and Staff!
This is a long review
We are two people who are hopelessly analytical and need time to digest information before we make any decisions. After walking around Black Canyon Inn, we didn't even need to discuss it... We looked at each other and knew this was the place we were looking for. The facility is immaculate, the views are incredible, and the ambiance of the entire place led us to fall in love immediately. For as amazing as the venue is and can be seen in pictures, the part we truly cherished was the staff and their commitment to making our day a true dream come true. We booked the venue in May 2019 for a wedding date of June 2020. The staff was so attentive as we planned for our ~120 person wedding and truly shined as COVID-19 impacted our big day and worked with us to have a 10 guest wedding of our dreams. In some of the more anxious moments of our lives, the Black Canyon Inn team navigated through these unprecedented times with us and the end result was a day we'll remember forever. There's not a high enough rating I can give this venue and staff.
Staff and Support:
Throughout the wedding process we met with many vendors with very mixed experiences from awful to amazing. Terisa and the staff at Black Canyon Inn were the best people we worked with and were a true partner throughout the whole process. I really can't stress enough how truly professional, compassionate, and competent the entire team was. Whether it was needing help with booking rooms for family, brainstorming ideas for the wedding, working with the team on payments, or customizing packages so it fit our vision and budget, the Black Canyon team listened and did whatever they could to fulfill our wishes. As the pandemic flared, Terisa and team stayed in constant contact and assured us they'd work with us to fit safety guidelines while also having a memorable day. With less than 2 months before the day, we were forced with the realization that if we wanted to get married on our original date, it'd have to be with 10 guests max and essentially we had to plan a new wedding. They of course offered us postponement options but we were adamant we wanted to get married on our original day and the Black Canyon Inn team worked hard to make it happen and were so attentive and responsive. When they day came, everything came together perfectly. We had a minor issue with decorations and they resolved it on the fly within the hour. The staff was truly incredible on our wedding day and it went absolutely perfect.
Wow! The views are breathtaking and the entire facility leaves the impression that you are in a secluded mountain town by yourself. Every single condo we rented was immaculate and well worth the cost. We used the pond for our first touch, the pavilion for the ceremony, and the Homestead for the reception. One look at the pavilion sold it for us and we had visited multiple sites in multiple states. It truly is one of a kind. There is wildlife everywhere and everywhere you turn is an opportunity for a photo. The Homestead is so cozy and the ambiance is incredible as it reminds you of a rustic cabin with tons of space and character.
After visiting several venues, Black Canyon Inn is an absolute bargain provided how amazing the food, condos, overall venue, and overall professionalism of the staff was. They'll work with you on the smallest detail and will make sure you're comfortable with what you're paying for.
Everyone was raving about the food served at our wedding. When we went to the tasting, we had a hard time turning down things we tasted. During our wedding, the staff was extremely attentive and no one waited long for anything. The chef came out a few times to check in on everything and was filled with pride over the dinner that was prepared for us.Sent on 07/01/2020

Do not look anywhere else!
We got married at Black Canyon Inn on July 16th 2020! We had been living in WI and moved to MT in March! Having Terisa and Lexi be there every single step of the way and reassuring us during covid with all of the forever ending changes it was seriously beyond perfect and so very memorable! We could not have hoped or anticipated a more perfect venue, staff, food and day to have everyone share in our I Dos! We want to do it again and again year after year!Sent on 11/10/2020
