    Unforgettable Experience

    I would like to simply start by just saying... THANK YOU! There is no amount of gratitude I can express to relay how grateful I am for Amy Lilyquist and the Sonnenalp Hotel team and staff. Our wedding was set for July 4th 2020 and we unfortunately got the news that our original venue would not reopen in time for our wedding... three weeks out! We quickly reached out to Sonnenalp and booked within a day. The level of hospitality Sonnenalp provided made us feel as though we had been clients for months. Within days Amy and her team helped us recreate all of our details: timeline, floorplan, menu, guest experience, room accommodations… they even worked with our external vendors to make sure everyone was updated. I cannot praise Amy and her team enough for all their help and for making us feel welcome and calm despite our stress to pull off our wedding in such a short amount of time. She reassured us it would all work out and it did! Our wedding was beautiful and better than we had ever hoped. We feel very blessed to have been able to celebrate with all our family and friends in Vail over 4th of July weekend despite everything going on in the world. Thank you Sonnenalp for making our special day truly special and one to remember!

    Top Quality Mountain Venue

    Cannot say enough positive things about Amy and her team. Professional and top quality service from start to finish. Everything was executed perfectly the day of and the care each team member puts in truly makes a difference. One of best aspects of the venue is quality of the food and amenities. We received countless comments on how quality the food was and everyone genuinely enjoyed their meal. You will not be disappointed with anything on the menu and people actually ate the cake because it was so good. The setup of the venue makes for a great day as well. The ceremony site is very intimate and worked well for our wedding of 100 people. The ceremony moves perfectly into the cocktail hour and allows guests to see the reception space in Ludwig’s as a whole new venue. The reception space in Ludwig’s is an absolutely perfect elegant mountain wedding venue. The open roof really makes the space unique and the placement of the bar worked great too. The Sonnenalp and its team surpassed our wildest dreams and we could not have been happier with our choice.

    The Perfect Wedding Weekend

    My son got married at the Sonnenalp Hotel in Vail, CO a few weeks ago. Every bit of the weekend was perfect. Amy, the coordinator was wonderful to work with throughout the entire process and the day of. The venue was stunningly beautifully. Most importantly the staff was incredible. We cannot say enough wonderful things about it!
