What a place! Perfect for our wedding June 2016. Sarah and John were amazing to deal with. Food was fantastic. I felt 100% satisfied with being under their wing. Not a single complaint came from my guests. HIGHLY recommend this venue with a gorgeous view of the mountains and wonderful landscaping perfect for pictures. Traci and Matt Landauer 06/11/2016
