Phenomenal Wedding Venue!
Due to a mixup at our previously-scheduled venue, we were stuck less than two months out from our wedding in Estes Park without a reception venue. Without the super friendly and accomodating staff at Taharaa Mountain Lodge (and a lot of luck), we wouldn't have had the perfect wedding day that we did. Sandra and Thad were very responsive during our frantic process of re-planning, and couldn't have been more helpful on the big day. The views from the event room were breathtaking, the staff was great, and the local beer options added a really nice touch since we both love Colorado breweries. Taharaa was better than we could have imagined, and looking back we are so glad that everything worked out the way that it did!Sent on 09/02/2019

Oh my goodness, I’m not sure where to even start with all the amazing things to say about Taharaa. Metta and Josh are some of the sweetest people we’ve ever met, and truly went above and beyond every step of the way for our wedding. We signed our contract with them 1.5 years before our wedding and were filled with questions throughout that time; they answered every one thoughtfully and thoroughly. We stayed at the lodge as did many of our guests and every single one raved about how phenomenal their customer service (and breakfast!) were. Metta walked us through every step of the wedding ensuring that we were comfortable and informed, and she handled coordination with all our vendors that day so my husband and I were never interrupted from the festivities. We are so grateful we had our wedding at Taharaa; it truly was a magical day and wouldn’t have been the same without Metta and Joshs’ help! If you’re looking for a beautiful mountain venue, look no further. No matter which of the ceremony options you choose (the Pergola, the deck, or the Great Hall), you won’t be disappointed!Sent on 05/14/2019

We absolutely love Taharaa ! We just got married there at the end of June and everyone was so wonderful who we worked with ! Metta and Terisa helped us with everything from the get go and have lots of experience :) In the end, our day was absolutely gorgeous and breathtaking; the venue has the best view of the mountains! Thank you Taharaa for making our day perfect!Sent on 07/13/2018

Beautiful venue! We had our reception here as our ceremony was earlier in the day, and our wedding venue couldn't accommodate an earlier reception. The Great Room has absolutely stunning views! Terisa was very communicative and accommodating.Sent on 12/23/2017

We had a small wedding reception at Taharaa and absolutely loved it!!! The owners and manager are wonderful and very accommodating. I am so glad we had the reception there and I can hardly wait to go back and stay there. Beautiful hall and beautiful views. It couldn't have been any better. Thank you Taharaa!!! And thank you Gourmet Kitchen for catering it. The food was absolutely delicious.Sent on 08/02/2017

We had our daughter's wedding at Taharaa Mountain Lodge last week and we couldn't have been happier! The staff there are just the best! Metta and Terisa were amazing. From start to finish, they were helpful and professional, yet easily accessible. The wedding and reception went so smoothly and I honestly didn't have to worry about a thing! From the first time I saw Taharaa, after my daughter and her fiance had chosen it for their venue, I was in love. What a beautiful venue and you can tell they take pride in ownership and making your stay as wonderful as it can be. I will not be surprised if the happy couple return for a more relaxing visit. Thank you Taharaa for making their day so memorable!Sent on 07/21/2017
Taharaa Mountain Lodge's reply:Thank you so much for taking the time to express these extremely kind words, they mean the world to us.

We could not have asked for a more stunning venue or more delightful staff to work with for our wedding! Terisa was the point person for our wedding and she handled all of the details seamlessly. I could always tell that she and the Tracy family were on top of things. We and our guests also loved staying at the Taharaa for several nights. The rooms are all stunningly beautiful (fireplaces, lovely decor, balconies with views, etc.) and the breakfast is divine! The staff here goes above and beyond. We will definitely be coming back for a future anniversary!Sent on 03/11/2017

Renting out the entire lodge for our friends and family was one of the best wedding decisions we made! Being surrounded by our friends and family the day before and after our wedding was so great. The venue itself is gorgeous and the staff was friendly and helpful. Highly recommend!Sent on 01/09/2017

This place is unbelievably amazing! Not only is the view the best in Estes Park, the venue is absolutely beautiful and the people are incredible! I am so happy with this place, and I do not believe there is any other place that I would have my wedding at. I wouldn't change my choice for the world and all of our family and friends loved it and thought it was the best as well! I know that if I am back in Estes Park, I will be staying there again! I can't say enough great things about this place, but I know you will not be disappointed!!Sent on 12/11/2016

Literally the best wedding venue in Estes Park. We loved every minute at Taharaa. The views are incredible. The service is personal and outstanding. The breakfast was amazing. Everyone at Taharaa worked hard to make our wedding day spectacular. They were wonderful at communicating with us. We worked with other venues for the rehearsal, and Taharaa stood out among the rest when it came to customer service. We can't wait to return for our anniversary weekend!Sent on 09/09/2016

This was an amazing setting for our wedding weekend. I say weekend because we were the only event there for those three days. We ended up booking the whole lodge for our family and friends. They are a bed and breakfast and the breakfasts were amazing all three days we were there. The rooms were comfortable with amazing views and a real lodge feel. The great hall is bright, spacious, clean, and has a nice lodge feel with the antler chandeliers and fireplace, which served as the perfect place for our reception. The staff, especially wedding coordinators Metta and Terisa, were amazing. They went above and beyond to make the day of the wedding run smoothly according to our vision. From letting us come in early to decorate, to taking care of moving the gifts, and even running the bar. They worried about the details so we didn’t have to. They coordinated with all the vendors so everyone knew where to go and what to do. They made the wedding weekend very personal and stress free. We would highly recommend the Taharaa Mountain Lodge as a beautiful setting for any special event. It will be a weekend that we and our guests will cherish for a long time.Sent on 10/21/2015

We had our wedding at the Taharaa Mountain Lodge this past September and it was absolutely incredible. From our very first meeting with them to the day we left they went above and beyond for us to help us create the wedding of our dreams. We were really looking to have a laid back mountain wedding with our friends and family and that is exactly what we got. The venue is incredible with gorgeous views and with the option to book the rooms for our family and friends it just made it feel like one big home. We had a really low key wedding and actually did not do a lot of the "traditional" stuff that weddings and receptions often have and their staff embraced that with us, which I really appreciated. Also, they did so many things to make us feel relaxed and really special leading up to and especially on the big day. Breakfast is delicious every morning and the happy hours were great as well. The rooms are also very nice and I loved that each one had its own character. Everything is so clean and inviting. It was everything we were hoping for and so much more! We are already talking about going back to visit soon! Thank you Metta, Josh, Terisa, and Thom- you guys are amazing!!Sent on 11/04/2015

Come For the Views, Stay For the StaffSent on 09/27/2015
Once you walk out onto the covered porch that joins the Great Hall, you will understand why you should have your wedding reception at Taharaa Mountain Lodge. What you will come to appreciate only during the planning and execution of your event is that, in addition to those views, you get a management team that is truly great to work with and committed to making your day as special as it possibly can be. The staff are involved from the beginning, and are able to help navigate issues and decisions, a lot of which you wouldn’t have thought of on your own! On the day of the event, set-up was flawless and neither the bride nor the groom were bothered once with any questions. Same with the execution of the event and the interaction with our other vendors – caterer, band, dessert, etc. We can’t thank the people at Taharaa for their help in planning and holding our event. And as for the space itself, our guests were in awe at the jaw-dropping beauty of Estes Park that is on display from Taharaa. We chose to put bistro lights on the porch, which made for a great “indoor-outdoor” space throughout the reception. And, we were lucky enough to have some elk join us outside for a brief time during our reception which was fun to watch. Finally, being able to rent out the entire lodge so every room was filled with friends and family was really special and made for a very “homey” feel the entire weekend. We couldn’t be happier we held our wedding reception at Taharaa Mountain Lodge and look forward to returning many times in the years to come.
Taharaa Mountain Lodge's reply:Carrie and Andy we appreciate your kind words and are so glad that you enjoyed your time with us here at Taharaa. Please come back to see us to celebrate all of your wonderful milestones as husband and wife! Congratulations again!

WOW! Taharaa Mountain Lodge was absolutely stunning and Trissa and team were outstanding. Our daughter chose Taharaa Mountain Lodge for her destination wedding in March 2015. Planning was all done long distance. They looked after every detail and put us at ease. The whole experience was a truly memorable and wonderful one. Breakfasts were especially fantastic!Sent on 01/11/2016

Daysha · Married on 03/14/2015
My husband and I were married at the Taharaa Mountain Lodge in March of 2015. We are from Texas and knew we wanted to get married in the mountains of Colorado, and the Taharaa was the place for us to do that. The venue is beautifully placed in the mountains just outside of Estes Park offering a breathtaking view of the Estes Park Valley. Our photos are absolutely beautiful, and everything that we pictured our wedding to be. We love the staff at the Taharaa, being a destination wedding it was important for us to feel like we could 'make ourselves at home' so to speak, and the Taharaa staff did just that! They were professional, organized, creative, and they made us feel like family. We are so blessed and thankful for how our wedding turned out, and we can, most certainly, thank the Taharaa staff for that!Sent on 01/11/2016

Taharaa Mountain Lodge was the perfect setting for our winter wedding. Terisa, the innkeeper, had great communication as this was a destination wedding for us. The room and scenery made it all the more enjoyable. An extra perk was the gourmet breakfast in the mornings with Josh. Everyone was friendly and courteous and had a great atmosphere. Our wedding was perfect and Taharaa went the extra mile to ensure our wedding was exactly how we envisioned it. Would highly recommend both Taharaa Mountain Lodge and our wedding photographer, Darcy Kiefel. Awesome for our intimate wedding!Sent on 12/25/2014

This weekend my husband and I got married-- it was absolutely amazing and a lot of the credit goes to Taharaa and their fabulous staff. Metta and Terisa are the best duo. Their attention to detail, great listening skills, calmness and professionalism blew us away. On top of that, their location is the most gorgeous of all the venues we toured. It was seriously the most picture perfect weekend. Thank you Taharaa team--we loved every minute and appreciate all of the work you guys did for us!Sent on 09/24/2014

We had our wedding at Taharaa a few weeks ago and it was AWESOME. The staff is so friendly and easy to work with, I had very few day-of-wedding concerns. All the wedding guests had a great time, and the people who stayed at the lodge were VERY glad that they did. The breakfast is awesome! Restaurant quality for sure - and different options every day! The views from Taharaa are amazing, and it's nice that it's a few miles from downtown Estes. The staff strives to create your wedding that suits your personalities and your needs. They made improvements on the ceremony site which worked out really well. A great vendor; I would definitely recommend them to other engaged couples.Sent on 09/29/2014

I think every bride says this, but I had the best wedding EVER and Taharaa was such a big part of the day's perfection! From the day that I expressed interest in the lodge the staff was professional, helpful and downright AWESOME! Our party spent the entire weekend at the lodge. Friday night started off with a warm welcome followed by an intimate happy hour. The day of the wedding, we woke up to a restaurant style breakfast that was delicious and started the day off perfectly. One of the most amazing parts of the day was the lack of stress I felt. Taharaa took care of everything from communicating with the vendors to setting up the reception. I was so impressed by their organization and accountability that I did not feel that I needed to micro manage the set up of anything and neither did my parents or the bridal party. The night was simply perfect and everything I had hoped for.Sent on 09/18/2014

The Taharaa Mountain Lodge was absolutely gorgeous. We could not have asked for a more beautiful setting or a more helpful staff. We knew that we wanted to get married in Estes Park and the Taharaa was the first of at least 6 venues that we looked at, but none of the others were as perfect. We had many of our guests stay at the lodge and they all loved it. They were so pleased with their rooms, the service, the views, and the atmosphere.Sent on 08/05/2014
Metta, Terisa, and Josh were so incredibly helpful- not only the day of the wedding, but the months leading up to it. They even welcomed myself and a bridesmaid to go and look through past wedding books to get decoration ideas. Metta and Terisa were amazing with emailing and communicating. They both did such an incredible job with the decorations. The reception hall looked so beautiful- they did a perfect job. If you choose Taharaa as your venue, there is no way you will regret it.
Taharaa Mountain Lodge's reply:It was such a pleasure to be apart of your special day. Your wedding was gorgeous, which was fitting for such a gorgeous bride. It was so much fun helping with decorations and seeing everything come together. Please come back and stay with us anytime, maybe for your 1st anniversary!

I couldn't have asked for a better venue and team for our July 5th wedding. The Tracy Family and Terisa listened to everything my husband and I wanted and were very flexible and accomodating. The rehearsal and wedding day went off without a hitch and everything went perfectly. I didn't have to worry about anything on the day of the wedding because I knew that it was being taken care of by the Taharaa staff. They set up all of my decorations for me exactly how I specified, coordinated all of the vendors, and knew exactly what they were doing. I initially was worried since we had signed our contract with the previous owners, but I was not disappointed. In fact, I think the owner change turned out even better for us. Thank you so much for everything! We will definitely be coming back to stay many years to come to relive the many unforgettable memories made there!Sent on 08/05/2014

Taharaa is the perfect blend of rustic elegance in a mountain setting.Sent on 06/30/2014
There are many highlights of working with the team at Taharaa, including how communicative they were and how transparent they were about costs and timelines. The thing that stood out the most to me was how absolutely cool as a cucumber the staff always were. That's not to say that they weren't on top of any issue that arose, but it was so nice having someone who was confident and collected about the wedding day, along with accommodations and breakfasts and just everything!
Taharaa was absolutely the right choice for us. I highly highly recommend Taharaa if you are looking for somewhere special in the mountains, with amazing, unobstructed views. We even had a deer join us for our rehearsal!

My husband and I could not have asked for a better reception venue and staff for our wedding. Taharaa's staff went ABOVE and BEYOND to ensure that our wedding reception was everything we dreamed it would be.Sent on 08/11/2014
Leading up to the wedding, they were always friendly and willing to answer our questions. They made payments simple and they were very flexible with how we wanted the hall set up for the reception. They allowed us to decorate the reception hall a day in advance so we didn't have to worry about it the morning of the wedding. They took copious notes and worked very closely with our caterer so when we entered the room for the first time as husband and wife, it was exactly how we pictured it.
The day of the wedding, they brought my bridesmaids and I breakfast in our room and checked in throughout the day to make sure everything was running smoothly. We were supposed to have a grand sparkler exit but it started pouring rain at the end of the night. So Taharaa's staff worked quickly and brought out bubbles they had left over for all of our guests and had them line up on their beautiful deck so we could "exit" through a sea of bubbles. It was nothing short of magical.
What we paid for the venue was well worth it when we look at the beauty of the venue, the responsiveness and professionalism of the staff and the flexibility they showed throughout the wedding planning process. I would recommend Taharaa to anyone who wants a beautiful and fun mountain wedding. Taharaa's staff WILL make it happen!
