Facilities and Capacity
If you are planning a wedding that gets the best of both worlds - a combination of the fresh charming countryside and cozy indoor spaces - then this venue might just be the one for you.
Celebrate your ceremony outdoors with a floral pergola as your backdrop, while your family and friends share in the moment just feet away from you. Here, you can set up the ceremonial arch near the serene stream that meanders its way through the rural landscape beyond. Later, you can pad your way through the green grass to celebrate the reception. With a great deal of outdoor space, you can get married on any one of the ideal sites, each one benefiting from the natural appeal of the nearby wooded area.
The barn itself provides a warm and inviting ambiance which also offers ample comfort, convenient amenities, and a rustic resplendence. It provides a remarkable backdrop for your wedding photos. Most importantly, it is a fitting place to raise a toast and begin the evening festivities.
The Party Pavilion and the Dining Veranda - with chairs and tables included - offer space for letting one’s hair down and reveling in the day’s one-of-a-kind atmosphere.
Although it is set among nature, The Elk Barn Inn is not without its many convenient services. Cleanup and setup services can be provided by the staff, while certain event rentals can also be made available.
While they are happy to work with outside vendors, the venue has a handpicked list of trusted names that they can suggest to the couple of honor. An event planner and get-ready rooms are two of the other eye-catching features that truly make this venue stand out.
Conveniently, The Elk Barn Inn also provides a range of diverse accommodation options. The wedding party can choose to stay in the lodge where warm, relaxing, and timber-dominated rooms await after a long night of partying.
For guests who don’t find room here, there is ample campsite space available for tents and trailers to be set up. Here, a campfire pit is available which adds to the rustic, outdoors attraction of the venue.

Our Outdoor Wedding - Elk Barn Inn
My now husband and I were married in Montana's Wilderness at the Elk Barn Inn. We loved the venue. We had about 70 guests, and rented out the barn for the weekend. The remote setting is awesome for a relaxing weekend with friends and family. We had Megan and her staff cook our group breakfast in the mornings, and we cooked dinner at night. We had big fires in the fire pit, and danced the night away under the gazebo. Megan was a dream to work with. The Elk Barn in was perfect for us.Sent on 05/27/2020

The Elk Barn Inn is Fabulous!
Where do we start? The Elk Barn Inn was the perfect venue for our Daughters wedding. Our large family stayed in the lodge and they loved it. The rooms are cozy and clean. We had the Lodge filled with Grandparents, Aunts, Uncles, Cousins, and Parents. There were no complaints, only wonderful Praises. They didn’t want to leave the beautiful lodge, and the mountainous scenery it offers at every turn.
The options our daughter and her fiancé had for ceremony sites on the property are all so beautiful. The owner Meggen is very accommodating. She wants your experience to be the best it can be and she offers great ideas if you need them. The Wedding, dinner, decorations, and set up all perfect! Meggen and her Staff at The Elk Barn Inn truly care that you have a great experience. We have no regrets and wouldn’t change a thing. If you want to have a beautiful wedding at a breathtaking venue check this place out. You won’t want to leave. Meggen is a wonderful person and takes great pride in her venue and all it has to offer. You will not be disappointed. Enjoy!Sent on 03/03/2020
