Colorado is defined by its mountain landscapes and its wide open spaces. This state's beautiful natural areas are an important part of America's image. People seeking a classic setting for everything from a family reunion to a destination wedding choose the resorts and ranches of Colorado. These event venues are much more than Old West theme parks or places to stay during the winter so that you can have easy access to the ski slopes. Guest ranches and rural Colorado resorts and event venues bring a high level of service and plenty of luxury to the proceedings.
At these resorts, you will find well-furnished private cabins that are more like villas and lodge rooms that are akin to fine hotel suites when it comes to amenities and furnishings. At the same time, all those classic Colorado attractions are still here. At the best Colorado event venues and ranch resorts, you will be near the ski slopes and will be able to hike, bike and ride horses during the summertime. Old fashion barbecues are on the agenda at some places, while others have skilled chefs who create both classic and modern dishes using some of Colorado's best ingredients. All the top guest ranches have a full kitchen staff that can be called upon to plan a menu and cater for your wedding or special event.
