About The Keystone Resort Wedding Venue

Not too far from Denver is the historic mountain town of Keystone, home to comfortable lodgings, quintessential mountain views, and renowned dining. Keystone Resort is a lodge full of rustic Colorado charm with a wide array of year-round outdoor activities and plenty of mountainside adventures. They describe themselves as a “laid back mountain playground,” perfect for kids and kids at heart. 

Keystone Resort’s idyllic setting and picturesque views also make it a spectacular venue for an unforgettable wedding. Whether you’re planning an elopement, an intimate celebration, or a grand affair, they have a variety of venue spaces that can accommodate any dream wedding. Plus, your guests will love staying just steps away from all the action, whether in one of their onsite hotels or single-family homes tucked away in the secluded Rocky Mountains.

Details of the Grounds

Keystone Resort has three wedding venues from which you can choose, depending on your vision for your perfect wedding day. All three have their iconic mountain views and all of the rustic charm you’d expect from a Colorado Rocky Mountain resort. 

The Ranch 

The perfect blend of Colorado frontier and classic country club with the historic elegance of an authentic 1930s ranch homestead. This space can accommodate up to 120 people, perfect for an event that feels intimate without having to whittle down a guest list. In warmer months, ceremonies are held on the green lawn that overlooks Keystone Ranch Golf Course and the beautiful Swan Mountain and Tenmile Range. For your reception, you can host it in their spacious tent with windows that overlook the spectacular property, mountains and all. Or, if you’re dreaming of a winter wedding, you can cozy up by hosting your reception inside the Lodge. 

The interior of the Ranch gives off cozy log cabin vibes with a large stone fireplace, log walls, exposed wooden beams, and plenty of windows that let in the breathtaking views. Light the space with a romantic glow using candles, and bring in any array of florals and greenery to make the space feel unique to your wedding. You can also host dinner indoors and move the dancing outside to the tent!

The Ranch’s restaurant is rated by Zagat Survey and has won Wine Spectator’s Best of Award of Excellence, in addition to several other esteemed accolades. Your guests will be thoroughly impressed with the quality of the food and the cozy, comfortable ambiance.

Ski Tip Lodge

Keystone Resort’s second wedding venue space is the Ski Tip Lodge, full of old-world charm and reminiscent of a rustic Swiss lodge. The building was originally an 1880s stagecoach stop and transitioned into Colorado’s first ski lodge in 1947. Today, it still has an intimate and rustic aesthetic with antique decor, walls made of logs and stone, and plenty of other cozy features. 

You can choose to host your ceremony (with up to 90 guests) amidst the idyllic garden setting overlooking a breathtaking Alpine lake, surrounded by rolling hills of pines and colorful landscaping. Enjoy dinner under the tent lit with romantic bistro lights. The gorgeous ski lodge makes a perfect rustic backdrop as you and your guests dine and dance under the stars. 

When the celebration has come to a close, you and 27 of your closest loved ones can rest in one of their nine newly renovated B&B rooms, perfect for a rustic mountain getaway feel to follow your incredible wedding. 

Timber Ridge

Last but not least, you can have your Keystone Resort wedding at Timber Ridge, located high up on the top of North Peak. Your guests will enjoy a magical gondola ride up to the site, surrounded by those breathtaking views from above. Host your ceremony on the outdoor wooden deck or on the adjacent lawn, both of which have spectacular views of the Gore and Tenmile Ranges. 

It’s also their largest space, accommodating up to 300 guests. Inside, the Timber Ridge Lodge feels elegant and grandiose, with high vaulted ceilings, gorgeous wooden beams and columns, and a magnificent stone fireplace that makes a perfect backdrop for a sweetheart table. It’s a fantastic venue for a true Colorado mountain wedding and one that exudes elegance and grandeur.

Whichever venue space you choose, your Keystone Resort wedding will include some of the most gorgeous views in the area, plenty of good food, and the perfect setup for a wedding you’ll remember forever. 

Keystone Resort Wedding Photography Opportunities

Without a doubt, the scenic views at Keystone Resort will play a huge role in your incredible wedding photos. With layers of mountain peaks, rolling hills of dense green forests, and open fields of grasses and wildflowers (or blankets of undisturbed snow, depending on the season!), the outdoors is an irresistible backdrop. Additionally, we’ll incorporate some of the rustic features of the property, including the exterior of the lodges and wooden fences. Indoors, we can capture cozy portraits in front of the fireplace or lounging on the comfortable furniture. The opportunities are truly endless, but perfect for any couple dreaming of a mountainous, cozy, rustic, natural aesthetic for your wedding album.
