    The most amazing weekend of our lives so far

    We had our wedding in early June 2022 at the Hideout and we can say without a doubt that it was the best decision we made in our planning process. We booked the venue sight unseen after looking at photographs as we had gotten engaged close by while climbing. We wanted to share the area and landscape with our family and friends and the Hieout did not dissapoint. The whole weekend was incredible for so many reasons, but by and large due to the hard work and kindness of the family that runs and owns the hideout. BJ, Tom and their son Josh are so communicative, helpful and just good people. They were great in the planning process (we used most of their recommended vendors) and when we arrived could not feel more taken care of throughout the whole weekend. Josh helps to plan out all of the settings: table, chairs, ceremony when you arrive and then magically makes everything happen smoothly. BJ had planted flowers everywhere so that in addition to the tremendous wildflowers blooming between the rocks the ceremony and reception area is full of flowers.
    Our whole family stayed in the lodge and saloon and it was so fun to make dinner with them on Thursday before everyone arrived and then have such an extraordinary place to get ready and spend time. Most of our friends camped on site and it was wonderful to be surrounded by friends and go hiking in the mountains and canoe on the lake the morning of our wedding. We had a field day the morning of our wedding and utilized the included coffee cart which was wonderful.
    The barn was an incredible space and everyone was astounded by the venue. While we had to change some of our plans because it was quite cold, Josh made everything seamless and had bonfires going for our rehearsal, cocktail hour and reception. We danced in the barn and then everyone went up to the hot tub at midnight for an incredible night under the stars. We truly could not imagine a better place to celebrate our marriage.

    Stunning location with everything you could want and need for the perfect day

    My husband and I had a change in plans and ended up eloping this year but we had planned our wedding here for next August 17th, 2019 (BONUS, that date is now available)! We would have loved to spend more time exploring the HideOut and enjoying all that the venue has to offer. This place is incredible!

    All of our conversations with BJ and the team up at the HideOut were timely and professional. We toured the venue last summer and quickly realized that the HideOut is absolutely gorgeous. The owners really have thought of everything you could want and need for your wedding weekend. Every wedding planner and vendor we spoke with had high reviews of this place. If you love the great outdoors, the HideOut is the perfect venue for you.

The Hideout is exactly what the name implies...it is hidden, secluded, and beautiful. We absolutely love the fact that our wedding couples choose this venue. The cabins, the lake, the hiking trails....so romantic. We have delivered our rental products there quite often this year and our drivers fight over who will go because it is such a beautiful drive. As a matter of fact, one of the drivers videoed his drive to bring back to everyone else because it was so breath-taking!
