    The Most Magical Venue in Colorado!

    I don't know where to even begin about this place! My husband and I stumbled upon this gem when we were out hiking in the Idledale/Evergreen area and at the time we couldn't find the right venue to host an event where we could bring the beer and wine we wanted to make. We started researching this location after we discovered it and found it met every criteria we could have imagined! It was beautiful and within our budget and it hit that historical charm we were looking for while being an outdoor venue. I can't say enough good things about Annie (the wedding coordinator) and all of the staff at Dunafon! They did an exceptional job at making our day run perfectly and helped all of our out of town guests feel comfortable and welcome!

    I had the best wedding ever at this venue! I actually had my eye on this place years before I was engaged and planning, so the decision to choose the Dunafon Castle was an easy one for us! Annie was a pleasure to work with, she was very quick to respond to any questions we had prior to the day and I didn't even need a day of coordinator because she was there along with the caterers and my florist to make sure everything was just how I'd envisioned it! I wasn't present for any of the setup on the day, but everything looked absolutely perfect! This is truly a magical setting! Everything was SO GREEN! July 1st was our day the weather was perfect, no rain, flowers blooming and not hot at all! I would recommend this time of year and this venue to anyone! It was definitely that fairy tale wedding I've always dreamed of! Thank you Annie and the castle team, it was the best day of our lives!

    We had many appointments with different venues but cancelled them all when we visited Dunafon Castle. It is absolutely enchanting and an absolutely wonderful venue. Annie is simply amazing and a joy to work with. I would call her the master of the castle and its ceremonies. She was very helpful and accommodating with everything and her calm and sweet demeanor just helped ease the normal wedding stresses. You definitely do not need a wedding planner when you work with professionals like Annie. The owner of Dunafon is also an interesting and amazing gentleman who is very charitable and kind. The vibe of the whole place along with its owner and Annie were extremely spiritual which is exactly the type of feeling we felt the day of our wedding and our guests also felt equally enchanted.
