Our venue was outstanding. Keelee went above and beyond to make our day anything and everything we could ever want. She responded to any question, to matter how big or small, within moments over the last year, and she told us YES to making everything happen the way we wanted -- from food to floor plans to decorations -- she made everything run smoothly and beautifully. We could not have imagined anything more. This place and Keelee were the absolute best....our wedding guests thought so too and we've even heard that out-of-town guests have recommended this place to their friends! It was perfect.Sent on 08/16/2012

I was a little nervous when I saw the two previous reviews here, posted after we booked the venue, but I think they were totally unfair... or at least wildly different from our experience. This venue is GORGEOUS. Jessica was so much help--our coordinator raved about her too! And above all, the food was FANTASTIC. We had such a great time and our guests were enraptured by the ceremony venue, which has a stunning view of the Rocky Mountains. Get married here!!!Sent on 06/27/2017

The View Restaurant in Estes Park, Colorado is one of my favorite settings for a wedding and reception with its wall of windows overlooking the green mountain town below. I have eaten there several times and have always been very impressed with the delicious food. One of the gems in Estes Park.
The Historic Crags Lodge is a beautiful and unique location for your wedding for other special event. The staff are friendly and professional and Ptarmigan String Quartet has enjoyed working with them in the past for wedding ceremonies!
The weddings I have perfomed there all talk of the veiw, the food, and the rustic decor that fits perfect. And of course Keelee who does take grand care of her brides.
