    Worth every penny

    We are so happy that we decided to have our wedding at Pine Peaks! Having the retreat house for us and our immediate families was amazing. Getting the entire place Thursday-Sunday is what sold us! We were able to take our time decorating, and had plenty of time to relax and enjoy too. Corey is a great guy, always friendly and willing to help with anything! We really enjoyed him. He is a big reason as to what makes this place great! We didn’t see Priscilla quite as much, but each interaction with her was great and it was nice to see her working as part of the serving/kitchen staff! We continue to get several compliments on how beautiful our wedding was, and how great the food was. We for sure recommend Pine Peaks!

    Wouldn't have been married anywhere else...

    I cannot begin to express how amazing our wedding day was. Priscilla is kind, caring, and such a fun person to work with! She was able to be accommodating with COVID and push our wedding date back a whole year! The retreat house is an excellent way to have close family and the bridal party stay at because it is just a few feet away from the event center and its amazing!! All our guests that stayed there had nothing but good things to say. Also, lets not forget to mention Corey and the bartender Ryan. The only way to describe Corey is incredible! He stepped in last minute to run our ceremony music, helped set things up that I didn't even know would be possible but was what my dream was, and was always around to answer questions or have a good laugh! And Ryan, he was so nice and sweet to all of our guests! Very accommodating by making our "special cocktail" and was always there when we needed to take a breather from the dance floor and have a chat! I cannot say enough good things about Pine Peaks and I am so glad we chose them for our wedding venue. It was magical and everything we could of dreamed of. THANK YOU so much to everyone who helped. We could not of done it without all of you!!

    The BEST Venue!

    I don't have enough words to say how wonderful Pine Peaks is! Priscilla, the owner, is fantastic and will go above and beyond to make your day special. She is responsive, pays great attention to detail, and provides excellent customer service. We can't thank her enough for how wonderful she was throughout our entire wedding planning process, especially in the midst of COVID. The venue itself is also incredible. One of the main reasons we chose it is because they have all the decorations you could ever want which you are free to use, which saves so much money! Everything from candles to vases to signs to wraps to centerpieces... you name it, they've got it. The other thing that we absolutely loved was the retreat house which is just a few steps away from the venue. Our family had the BEST time staying there all together. We made very good use of the pool table, bar, and gym in the basement, and the large kitchen was perfect for preparing big meals together. The master suite is amazing as well -- it has the world's best bathtub and shower, we loved watching tv in bed with the fireplace on, and it was SO nice to have my own hair and makeup suite attached to the master! All my girls were able to get ready with me and it made the morning so fun. There are mirrors EVERYWHERE -- they've really thought of everything. Lastly, the grounds are also gorgeous and there are so many wonderful options for pictures outside (even when it's -30 degrees on your wedding day like it was for ours). Every single one of our family members was saying they hope they can come back again for another wedding someday. It is truly the perfect wedding venue and you will not regret booking it!
