The Black Canyon Inn is a premier Estes Park destination wedding venue offering three unique scenic ceremony sites unlike any other in this area of the Rocky Mountains.  Tucked away between a granite ridge and the open space of MacGregor Ranch, you will have picturesque views of Rocky Mountain National Park’s Longs Peak, Continental Divide and Lumpy Ridge. Picture yourself at one of our three beautiful sites for your special union and photos of a lifetime!

Black Canyon Inn offers the ability to have your complete wedding celebration conveniently hosted at one central location - scenic outdoor ceremony venues, award winning Twin Owls Steakhouse receptions and spacious condo lodging for you and your guests.

The Lawn is our most flexible venue, offering open space for ceremonies, group pictures, and an outdoor cocktail and appitizer hour prior to your reception.  There are restrictions to the later option. Please contact us for more details.  The Lawn is best suited to larger groups.

The Intimate Stream-fed Pond features a small island accessed by an arched bridge and grand views of Longs Peak in the Rocky Mountain National Park.  The island is a perfect venue for a wedding with 25 guests or less.

The Sloan’s Creek Event Space provides groups an indoor back up space, gathering area, or meeting space during your special visit.  Please contact us for pricing and ideas on how you can utilize this beautiful space for your event.
