Lazy R Ranch is a rustic wedding venue and guest ranch, located a short distance from Banks, Idaho. This authentic ranch features thousands of pastoral acres set amid the upper mountain meadows of the Drybuck Valley. Located off Idaho State Highway 55, this site is a little over a one-hour drive from Boise or a one-and-a-half-hour drive from McCall. This picturesque area makes a wonderful setting for a dream country wedding. You and your loved ones can enjoy a celebration here - one to hold in your memories in the years to follow.

Facilities and Capacity

Lazy R Ranch is a genuine working ranch and this authenticity is a hallmark of life and weddings in this area of rural Idaho. This is a living place where memories are made and where cattle and horses are raised. The historic red and white barn with loft has hosted weddings and other special events such as family reunions for over 50 years. Space and parking have been readily available for even groups with 250 guests. Outdoor ceremonies can soak in the pastoral beauty of this valley region with a backup plan inside the barn as needed. Large sliding front doors and porches for overflow extend the coverage of the barn and offer a blend of indoor and outdoor settings. Two get-ready rooms inside the barn offer the to-be-weds comfortable spaces to prepare and relax on their big day.

Services Offered

This ranch hosts engagement parties, bridal showers, ceremonies, and receptions, with the peak season for this venue that stretches from May through November. Should you book this venue for your celebration, your package can include event planning, rentals, accommodation, and cleanup. The venue team supplies an archway and up to 100 chairs, 12 round tables, and six banquet tables. For an additional fee, this team can provide linens, hay baling seating, and coordinate the setup of your festivities. You are free to bring lighting and decorations except for flame lights. With no music ordinances, you can keep your party going as long as you like into the night. This is a venue where you and your guests can make marvelous memories together.

    Stunning!!!

    This is the most beautiful venue you could ask for! It also acquired everything you need for the perfect wedding day from the indoor and outdoor space to plenty of room for all your guest to stay! Booking the whole weekend made it so much easier to set up and get ready, I would highly recommend this gorgeous venue!

    Wedding June 1, 2019

    My husband and I got married at Lazy R in June 2019. We honestly can’t say enough about the ranch. Everything was absolutely gorgeous. Jessica & Bryan we’re amazing to work with. They made the wedding planning process so easy and were more than happy to jump in and help anywhere they could. Jessica also made herself available 24/7 for any wedding questions we came up with. The venue is a perfect place for a “down-home” event whether it be a wedding, reunion or retreat. We rented the venue Friday through Sunday to have a “camping-style” wedding. Some of our guests camped in tents, done brought trailers, some stayed in the beautiful cabins. Every one of our guests loved staying at the ranch before and after the wedding to relax and socialize. Aaaamazing and beautiful, definitely go see it for yourself!! Thank you Lazy R Ranch 😊😊😊😊
