Primarily a children’s summer camp, this historically rich setting provides expansive mountain views, including Longs Peak, Mount Meeker, and the Mummy Range. From romantic elopements to detailed receptions, our onsite team will be ready to turn your dream into a reality.

Facilities and Capacity
With over 800 private acres, The Cheley Lodge and Grove boasts an expansive location while still creating an intimate, secluded aesthetic. We have two venue options:

The Grove, an open outdoor field area, can accommodate up to 200 people for both an outdoor ceremony and tented reception with a dance floor. Rustic wood fences surround the space, to celebrate the property’s down-to-earth, country-style ambience.

The other venue option features the ceremony in the Frank H. Cheley Chapel, with theatre-style bench seating underneath a rustic, natural-wood pavilion, and the reception in Chipeta Hall, a historic mountain lodge that features wood cieling trusses, traditional chandeliers, and large windows. Enjoy the glorious alpine views from their altar, along with plenty of natural lighting for a photo-ready ambience. There is a dance floor area in Chipeta Hall. A dance floor area, full-service bar, and A/V equipment is also present inside, to give you and your guests all that you need.

Dressing suites are present on the property, for you and your entourage to prepare for the altar in style. Parking is available onsite.

Services Offered
The onsite team will handle set up and tear-down for your event, while you spend time getting ready and enjoying time with your loved ones. We require the use of one of our vendors for wedding planner, catering, and beverage. We have a list of preferred vendors for other services or you can choose outside vendors to complete your vision. From your rehearsal dinner to your romantic send off, our wedding venue coordinator will be ready to assist you throughout your life-changing celebration.

Incredible location with incredible management

The Cheley team did an incredible job supporting my wife and I on our special day. They were accommodating and executed consummate professionalism throughout the planning process and during the event. If you are looking to have your wedding in Estes Park, I could not imagine having it at better location.

We feel so fortunate to have been married in such a special place

We spent almost six months considering wedding venues to try to pick the perfect location for our wedding. We had high expectations and a long list of things that were important to us. Cheley checked all those boxes. We are so glad that we chose to get married at Cheley Lodge and Grove. We had our ceremony in the Grove and reception in the tent. It was such a beautiful location. The ceremony spot has amazing sweeping views of the mountains and the tent was stunning. So many guests commented on how special and stunning the location was. The proximity to Rocky Mountain National Park and Estes Park meant all of our guests had a fun weekend beyond our wedding. Kim was wonderful to work with too.

Exceptional Choice for an Exceptional Day!

Brooke, Kim, Chase, and the whole gang at Cheley were so awesome from start to finish! They made booking the venue, running through the rehearsal, carrying out the ceremony, and planning all the event details an absolute breeze—even though we were wedding planning from two states away! We were even able to realize our dream of taking our guests on a short hike to a gorgeous overlook right after the ceremony. Everyone agreed, it was the PERFECT place for us mountain-obsessed lovebirds to tie the knot—and the pictures are SPECTACULAR! THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH!!!
