Facilities and Capacity

With over 800 private acres, The Cheley Lodge and Grove boasts an expansive location while still creating an intimate, secluded aesthetic. The open outdoor field area, known as The Grove, has plenty of space to accommodate up to 200 people. Rustic wood fences surround the space, to celebrate the property’s down-to-earth, country-style ambience. As a pet-friendly venue, your furry companions can enjoy the spacious, pastoral grounds with you during your special day. Their main ceremony space, the Frank H. Cheley Chapel, offers theatre-style bench seating underneath a rustic, natural-wood pavilion. Soon-to-be-weds can enjoy the glorious alpine views from their altar, along with plenty of natural lighting for a photo-ready ambience. Receptions can be held in the Chipeta Hall, a historic mountain lodge which features wood ceiling trusses, traditional chandeliers, and large windows throughout the space. A professional kitchen is available inside for your catering team to use, to prepare your dishes to the highest standards. 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, with wheelchair accessibility to accommodate your guest’s personal needs.

    The most perfect wedding venue

    The most beautiful venue in Estes Park! We booked Cheley for our wedding sight unseen as we live out of state and couldn't be happier. We used the Chapel and Lodge for our wedding and reception and people are still saying it was the most beautiful wedding they've been to. The backdrop is second to none. Brooke and Bo were amazing to work with, and every staff member we met was extremely friendly and helpful. They helped us coordinate every detail from hundreds of miles away to make the day beyond perfect. We are still reminiscing about how incredible the day was. Perfect in every way. We highly recommend!
