    Suburb!! I'm convinced there is no better venue

    Our wedding at the Craftwood Inn was suburb! I think our's was the first in history to have nothing go wrong and that is largely due to Brian! It was wonderful working with him to put together the wedding of our dreams! It was elegant, classic, and comfortable. We've gotten so many praises from our guests, as well! The food was to die for, which was very important to me when we were considering venues! There were hardly any leftovers at all! The setting was equally amazing with famous red rocks of Manitou, a lush garden, and gorgeous views of the Peak! No one can match the excellency of the Craftwood Inn!

    Craftwood Inn's reply:

    Thanks McKenna for the kind words..I wish we still had your wedding to look forward to!! Such a great crowd and you both were wonderful to plan with!! Have a Great Summer!!

    Brian and Dave, we can't thank you enough for the perfect evening last Saturday night! The decorations, the food, the service, the staff and the overall ambience of the Craftwood is truly special! It's a memory we will never forget.

    The owners of the Craftwood Inn, Brian and David are wonderful to work with, they are very responsive to inquiries or questions which made the overall experience stellar! They are always available by phone or email and an absolute pleasure to work with. I couldn’t believe the attention to detail, they have everything covered so you don’t have to think or worry about anything! You will not be disappointed when choosing this venue!

    The Craftwood Inn is absolutely beautiful and romantic, with stunning views of the Colorado mountains! We highly recommend the amazing Craftwood Inn to host the wedding of your dreams. You are guaranteed to have amazing photos with the beautiful backdrop.

    The food was delicious, especially the green bread. We received exceptional service, the staff was very attentive to us and our guests making sure everyone was taken care of. Our guests raved about the quality and taste of the food with many of our guest going back for more. We had a wonderful time and our guests danced the night away!

    On November 7, 2021 We had the wedding of our dreams thanks to Brian and David!
