Rist Canyon Inn is the MOST beautiful outdoor/indoor venue in Northern Colorado. They are very organized, prompt in responding, and helpful in the planning process! Aside from the immense beauty of the property, the farmhouse, grooms quarters and new event hall were absolutely stunning! The coordinators made us feel like family and not 'just another wedding' and were so helpful and kind. This place makes for beautiful photos and amazing memories! It's going to be THE hot spot for weddings in Northern Colorado!Sent on 10/06/2018

Above and Beyond
There are not enough words to describe Rist Canyon Inn and how special this property is. We could not have asked for a more perfect venue for our wedding. The owners, Allan and Emily, have gone above and beyond in making this place the most beautiful venue in Colorado. We loved everything about this venue- getting ready in the farmhouse, the groom’s cabin, the beautiful outdoor ceremony area, and the reception hall. The location is breathtaking, secluded, and so romantic with views of the mountains. Rist Canyon Inn was absolutely amazing not only on the day of, but throughout the entire planning process. Allan and Emily answered all of our questions and made us feel so comfortable and taken care of. We will be forever thankful for all of the memories we have here!Sent on 07/30/2019
