This historic venue was built in 1914 by John Charles Shaffer and his wife Virginia Conser. It included 8,000 square feet and featured 20 rooms, six baths and an 80-foot-long living room with mirrored fireplaces at each end. The Shaffers hosted many prominent figures throughout the years, including President Theodore Roosevelt. There was a 110-foot flagpole behind The Manor House that had a light inside. When it was lit, it could be seen from Denver, and was used as a sign to the social community to join them for a grand celebration.

Look No Further -- Best Venue in Denver!
WOW. That is the first word that comes to mind after just having our wedding at this marvelous venue. I think we can all agree, if you have been there, that this venue is a show stopper from the moment you see it sitting on top of the hill, to when you pull through its luxurious gates and finally the moment you walk in the front door. This place has more character, charisma and coziness (especially with all of the fireplaces on) than any other venue I looked at. Your guests will be gawking the whole night about how wonderful the venue is, heck, I am still receiving calls and comments about it. Plus, they are an all-service venue so food and drink are done in-house. Perhaps you pay a bit more for that, but to have the ease of mind knowing food, drink and all of the servers it takes to run a smooth wedding, are things you do not have to plan for or worry about makes for less brain-drain. Seriously!Sent on 02/04/2020
Now, if you think the venue is WOW, wait until your wedding is over and you reflect back on the service you received at said spectacular venue. WOWZA! Kelley and her team are true professionals that have been running this well-oiled machine for some time now and it shows. I never for a moment worried about something not going right, food not being hot, guests not being served drinks in a timely manner. The night was beyond smooth. I cannot talk enough about how smooth it was. Flawless. Again, so many of our guests kept commenting on how good the food was, how impeccable the service was (start to finish) and how quick the bar was. This is truly the BEST establishments in Denver to have your wedding at.
The Manor House's reply:Kelsey, WOW to this review! Thank you SO much for your kind words. We are truly moved by your recommendation and absolutely thrilled that you and your guests enjoyed your special day. Thank you for the honor of hosting your wedding day!

Great to work with!
My husband fell in love with the location and look of this venue before we’d ever visited. I knew not to get my hopes up until we interacted with the staff and they answered a few of my questions (mainly if they would do an all vegan menu). Being a destination couple, I was really worried about communication, but from the moment we started communicating with them it was a breeze! When we finally did our first site visit I was stunned, the house and the grounds are splendid. There is lots of space, but it is decorated in a way that creates plenty of spots for small conversations and the ballroom has pretty great acoustics. When it came to discussing the all vegan menu, I was pleasantly met with “this is something we are seeing more requests for and we would love to work with you on this”. After a little bit of time, as the chef created a menu and tested different options, we were given options for our tasting that I would find at any vegan restaurant of caliber. When we came back for our tasting, I was blown away. Every single thing we tasted was incredible and even my omni and picky mother was delighted. For the mains we went with a carrot osso buco and mushroom risotto, and we are still receiving compliments from guests about the food. We worked with Kylie for the majority of the time leading up to our big day and she was with us during the rehearsal and all day during our wedding. She was always pleasant and professional the whole time. There were a couple of times where we wished she’d given a little more direction (the grooms party was a little lost - but the bridesmaids were extremely well attended to, none of our guests were invited to watch us cut our cake, and we had to direct everyone to our big exit), but overall was attentive and understanding of our needs. She worked with us to make sure all of our handmade details were showcased exactly as we wanted them and that my special requests were met.Sent on 02/11/2020

We love photographing weddings at The Manor House!
The Manor House is an incredible wedding venue. The staff will do everything possible to make sure your day is everything you dreamed it would be. I have performed at countless venues in the Denver area, and this is one of my absolute favorites. Check out their great website, and then visit in person!
Amazingly beautiful location for your wedding, with views of Red Rocks and Downtown Denver in the background. I have shot several weddings here and they are always so gorgeous. I highly recommend booking this venue!
