About

$5k - $7k For 100 Guests

Hold a wedding in a former Catholic elementary school? Amen to that! - and we promise, no one will rap your knuckles with a ruler for bad behavior. In fact, we encourage you to dance in the hallways, drink on school property, laugh out loud in classrooms and more.

Built in 1936 as the St. Francis of Assisi Catholic School, this hotel is a gem unlike any other, offering comfortable and modern guestrooms, an onsite brewery, a year-round soaking pool, quaint small bars and more. After your big event, guests can enjoy the entire property, taking in the original artwork, stopping for a glass of wine or a pint of ale, gathering together in any number of cozy spots including hidden rooms. We even have one cottage that accommodates up to 10 where you can host an entire wedding party.

The Old St. Francis School is one of the most charming venues in all of central Oregon - it will leave you and your guests with wonderful memories.

    Valuable Quality

    I could not have asked for a better venue than McMenamins Old St Francis. They were incredibly helpful in guiding me plan, flexible with our reception vision and affordable. The location was perfect since our guests have never been to central Oregon and the location's uniqueness allowed our guests to have a memorable experience.

    Attentive Service and Attention to Details

    Lauri at McMenamins Old St. Francis School in Bend, Oregon helped put together a special reception for our wedding on June 15, 2019. She worked closely with us to make sure every detail was covered and was very flexible with the ever changing head count! The room was amazing, the food was delicious and our guests had a great time! What a relief to know that it was all in her hands the day of the wedding, so I could focus on the ceremony and know that when we got to the reception, it was all going to be great! Thank you so much! Stephanie and Frank Wood

    McMenamins Old St. Francis School's reply:

    Thank you Stephanie and congratulations! It was such a joy to work with you and Frank. The wedding reception was beautiful, your family had a great time, and our staff really enjoyed working with you. And the flowers...wow! Absolutely gorgeous.
