Amazing venue and wonderful staff!
My husband and I got married at the mansion back in November and it totally exceeded our expectations! The venue is gorgeous and has some amazing views -- we decided to go out to the 15th hole to take some pictures at the last minute and I'm so glad we did because they turned out AMAZING! Everything was so beautiful and the whole event went off without a hitch thanks to Julie, Bobby, and the rest of the wonderful staff at the mansion! They made some great recommendations for vendors and helped us walk through our ideas for decorating the mansion... it really made that part of the planning process seem so much easier! Julie worked tirelessly with me in the weeks leading up to the wedding to get the tables/seating EXACTLY how I wanted so we could maximize the space and seat all of our guests downstairs. They were so accommodating and even allowed us to come a day early to start setting up so we didn't have to worry about it all on the day of, which was a HUGE relief! It was also super convenient being able to rent the cottages on-site so our wedding party could stay close by and continue the celebration after the reception ended! Our day truly felt like a dream and I'm still amazed and so grateful that everything went so smoothly! I highly recommend this venue -- you can't beat the views or the people!Sent on 12/27/2019

Best wedding venue in Bastrop and Lee Counties
We just had our wedding for NYE at the mansion. The staff awesome to work with. Julie is the best and is always available to assist with suggestions on making your day the best. Her husband rounds out an excellent team. They were so accommodating. My guest were so impressed with the mansion and the grounds. The views at sunset are amazing!Sent on 01/02/2019

Just had my wedding here last month. It went far beyond my expectations. We had the mansion for the rehearsal dinner and wedding and rented the cottages for the before/after celebrations. The entire weekend was spectacular and none of my friends and family can stop talking about it. Amazing grounds, reasonable pricing, and managers who help with everything to make your day special create a beautiful experience for your wedding. I expect we will rent it out for special occasion events in the future.Sent on 04/13/2018

Thank you so much Ms Julie and Mr Bobby Browne! I got married at The Mansion on December 29, 2017! Everything went perfectly and looked like a fairytale! I am very happy and Wes loved it too. We really connected with the Brownes because they are awesome Christians and people. They were so understanding and the whole team worked hard to make our day special. The price includes engagement photo shoot, rehearsal time, 12 hours for the venue on the wedding day and everything in the mansion you can use. Mr Bobby also provided the alcohol for our wedding. I would recommend this venue to anyone that wants a elegant wedding. It is so beautiful. Thank you Colo Vista. Love you all, Lertisha Chancler!Sent on 01/19/2018

My daughter just got married last weekend at the Mansion in ColoVista. Our wedding was planned to be inside since it was a Dec. 2, 2017 wedding. We were able to take it outdoors with the gorgeous weather and made it even more special. We did our rehearsal, brunch, and wedding all there. My daughter and son in law wanted to find the Venue that would give them a weekend package for our guest from out of town. Golf, cottages, and Venue were there. From the second we booked, Martha & Doug Granger, and Julie & Bobby Brown, all made their dreams of the perfect wedding come true. Their wedding planners walk you through the wedding of your dreams. They get your input and make it happen. It was beyond our perfect wedding.Sent on 12/06/2017

Wonderful staff. They were very welcoming and professional. Everything was awesome and ready to go. They were even very flexible about what we could and couldn't bring. (we brought our own food to the wedding).Sent on 12/05/2017

I never thought I'd be so thrilled to have the wedding I'd been planning for more than 9 months practically fall apart 1o weeks before our big day. We'd run into some pretty big issues with the venue we'd originally booked, so we ended up backing out and being on the hunt for a new venue. By the time we found The Mansion, I was a complete basket case. We'd already been looking for over two weeks, and we just couldn't find something that we loved that was still available. By the time my sister mentioned she had been talking with Julie at a venue in Bastrop, I was ready to cave and just choose a venue that was functional. We called Julie and told her that we were almost two hours away, but we could meet her that evening. She agreed to meet with us for an after-hours tour. As we pulled into the parking lot, my fiance (at the time) uttered the words "oh wow." The mansion is HUGE and absolutely gorgeous. The back lawn and huge oak trees are beautiful, but none of this compares to the view from the ceremony site! We weren't even halfway through the tour before we agreed this was the place, and we were finally excited for our wedding again! Julie was amazing to work with. She put me at ease right away, and any time I had a random question, she was very quick to respond. Our original venue was a rustic, open-air pavilion on a horse ranch...so a complete 180 from The Mansion. It was really overwhelming for me to switch gears at first, but Julie was so flexible in letting us truly make the day our own. I cannot say enough great things about the venue itself, or the people running it! The cottages on-site were perfect for allowing us to celebrate with our guests all weekend long. Bobby & Julie went above and beyond in making sure the cottages were in great shape for us. We honestly could not have had a more perfect wedding, and I'm so thankful they swooped in and saved our day!Sent on 03/30/2017

The mansion and the view is gorgeous. There was even a road runner that showed up during our photos! I would get married here again. I highly recommend! Martha Granger is such a pleasant person and very helpful. They also include a day of coordinator, which I'm very thankful for. I had no idea if anything wrong happened. I was able to enjoy myself and not worry.Sent on 11/24/2016

We had our wedding and reception at Colovista in Bastrop on October 17th. I just want to say it was a great experience. The venue was spectacular and everything I ever wanted. Working with Addison and Ryan was so easy and they took a lot of stress away from what would normally have been a very stressful time. They went out of their way to make sure we got everything we wanted and how we wanted it. We went over what we wanted it and Addison made sure it was done. Wedding coordinator, Debra and her assistant filled in for Brenda Abbott, the day of the wedding and I cannot say enough good about them. They were awesome making sure everything flowed smoothly.Sent on 11/03/2015
If you are looking for a venue for your upcoming wedding, I would highly recommend Colovista. It was the best day of my life, not only because I married the man of my dreams, but was able to have the venue and experience of my dreams as well.

What an amazing place for our wedding!! My husband I got married Colovista 10/10/15. Addison was easy to work with and made us feel at home. We had the rehearsal dinner at their restaurant , The View, and the bridal party stayed at the cottages the Friday and Saturday. It was the complete experience! Our guests said everything was beautiful and the sunset made for incredible pictures!Sent on 11/17/2015

They were so great when we had to move the event from outdoor to indoor on the day of my wedding. So sad that they arent currently doing weddings as this was a great place to get married.Sent on 11/14/2012

Great venue and location with good service!
As far as the venue and scenery goes the place is amazing! Coordinating the wedding with the venue owners was a pleasurable experience as well they did a great job! The day of coordination needs improvement. We didn’t meet or even speak/hear from the day of coordinator until the day before the wedding which lead to numerous mishaps during the ceremony (ex. groom’s parents sitting by themselves in the first two rows when grooms brothers and family should have been next to them, wedding processional didn’t go according to plan) The on-site cabins were very clean and a huge bonus! The golf course needs some work but the layout is great and the extra hot summer and rainy fall didn’t help!Sent on 12/04/2018
Our post wedding interaction with the venue was not the best. It took over a month to get our deposit back and when asked about deductions the venue coordinator made it a point to mention the amount of effort it took to put together our wedding of 300 guests which was the biggest wedding they’ve done. Obviously it took a considerable amount of work and effort which is what we expected to make our wedding day one to remember! Just didn’t appreciate how it was kinda thrown in our face.
Overall I give the experience an A-... To expect perfection is unfair but there were several things we would have liked to have done better on the venue’s end. I would recommend the venue and owners for your wedding or special event!
The Mansion at Colovista's reply:Thank you Noble for your review and constructive critique. Hope you have a blessed future and many good memories made to take with you from that night.

Dreamy Venue with Great Owners
My husband and I got married here this past April. We had a better experience than we ever expected or could have even asked for.
The venue itself is gorgeous and a wedding venue unlike most I have seen. Guests can roam about the mansion in each unique room, upstairs or downstairs, or spend time on the lawn or in the front rose garden. It makes the whole wedding experience engaging for guests. The bridal suite, grooms quarters, cottages on site, golf course--there so many amenities the Mansion offers that make the weekend feel like a getaway for the bride and groom, bridal party and guests alike!
*Do note: if you do an outdoor ceremony, the sun sets into the valley so the sun will likely be in guests eyes, depending on your time of ceremony. BUT - it makes for a BEAUTIFUL time for the sunset after dinner that guests really enjoy (ours began at 6 pm).
However, the venue is not the only thing that makes The Mansion at ColoVista an amazing place to pick for your wedding. Bobby and Julie, the owners, are willing and happy to accommodate all (reasonable) requests. Julie is kind and thoughtful in how she interacts with us as the bride and groom, as well as thinking of the guests and their experiences. Bobby is courteous and willing to help out in any and all ways he can. They also partner with Brenda Abbot Floral, who will coordinate the day, and her team does a near perfect job.
All in all, we couldn't recommend The Mansion enough!Sent on 06/24/2019
The Mansion at Colovista's reply:Thank you Sara. I wish nothing but the very best for you and Brandon. Your day was very memorable with a large group of people there that truly loved you.
