Embrace your romantic side at the Briarhurst Manor, a venue located in Manitou Springs, Colorado. This fairytale mansion was built in 1876 and its authentic charm has been carefully preserved.

It also features many elements of Tudor architecture, which lend a refined air to the manor, providing couples an elegant backdrop on their wedding day.

    Me & my fiance are having our wedding reception at the Briarhurst Manor next summer and really like the location and view. We also like them the first time we met with them to book our reception.

    My husband and I recently got married at The Briarhurst Manor and all I can say is WOW!!! We are speechless. We found this venue over the internet. The reviews were pretty good and so much was included so we booked it without seeing it. We live in Florida so when we had a chance we came out to do cake tasting and so on and omg this place is beautiful. The food is to die for. We eneded up having our rehearsal dinner here also in the Palmer Room!!! The price is so reasonable... Not even fair actually compaired to the service and food. There were even deer hanging around during the wedding. Our planner Allison.... Im really not sure there are words to describe how amazing she was. I still tear up thinking about her and everytime i turned around, she was always there to make sure my family and our guests were happy. We were so nervous and Allison just made it happen. Our wedding was so intimate, and beautiful. We truly couldn't have dreamed of a better wedding. Allison felt like part of the family. She def. Outdid herself. I would reccommend Allison and the Briarhurst Manor ten times over. The staff was also so attentive and amazing, even patient when dealing with drunkin guests. We cant thank you enough. From the bottom of our hearts, Thank you. We cant wait to come back for our anniversary every year. This is the nost beautiful venue with amazing people ??????????

    Thank you Alison and the Briarhurst Manor for making the wedding of my dreams come true. When we look back at our wedding June 21 there was no other place I would have wanted to have our wedding. The Manor, the staff, the food, the cake, Alison and everything about the Briarhurst was more then what we could have expected. You made our day amazing. Looking back I know because we surrounded ourselves with the best people in the business at the Briarhurst Manor it was the best day of our lives..Thank you

Tucked away, behind the creek and deep within huge old growth trees lies the beautiful Briarhurst Manor. It's lush, green and sprawling grounds harken back to a nobler time when chivalry and romance weren't "bad words"! ; ) The building may be historic, but that does NOT mean "run-down", "musty" or "creaky". It has been perfectly and lovingly maintained and it's just as splendid and solid as it was in the early years (or maybe even more-so...) The Briarhurst has a very professional staff and fantastic food. Did I mention the Garden of the Gods is right down the street? Yeah. Pretty fantastic.
