We are an intimate wedding venue with a capacity for up to 120 guests. Our clients are looking for a weekend experience to spend time with friends and family. Our Canvas Barn can easily hold 120 seated guests in the covered portion and still serve as a backup ceremony site in the event of inclement weather. There is an attached 1500 SF deck with string lights above for dancing or dining under the stars!


You can have more than 100 guests at our venue, and the attached 1500 square foot deck can be used for additional seating, but be prepared for the typical quick afternoon storm that blows through! We recommend renting an event tent for backup dining needs since our Canvas Barn only holds 120 guests under the covered portion. We only provide (12) 10' long wood farm tables, and 200 wood chairs, so you would also need to rent additional tables & ceremony chairs to seat your additional guests from an outside vendor source such as Ace Hardware in Westcliffe. There is an additional venue fee of $3000 for large weddings due to the extensive coordination and extra attention that is required.


Four Modern Farm Cabins are included in the venue rental. Westcliffe is a small town, but can easily accommodate over 100 guests. Westcliffe has many lodging options including multiple motels and Inns, as well as approximately 70 Airbnb and VRBO lodging options available. We highly recommend getting your lodging secured as soon as you book your event with us as Westcliffe is a popular tourist spot in the summers & fall! See our Info webpage for recommended lodging options.


We love showing clients and potential clients around the venue. You can book your tour online or by phone. Guests are not authorized to visit Three Peaks Ranch without an appointment.


A licensed, insured Caterer is required for your event. You may use any full service caterer of your choice, and food trucks are allowed as well if they are full service such as PB Catering. There are several great companies to choose from to fit a variety of budgets and styles! Paper plates and plastic solo cup are not allowed (Fine plastic china and glassware are allowed).


We strongly recommend that you hire a professional, insured wedding event coordinator or planner for the day of your event. The event coordinator will ensure that all of your event details and timeline go smoothly. We want you and your guests to have a wonderful time at Three Peaks Ranch and an event coordinator on the day of your event will be a valuable resource. You may hire the day of coordinator or full service planner of your choice. They will both make your day special!


Colorado is known for its year-round beautiful weather. If the weather isn’t exactly what you hoped for, Three Peaks Ranch is prepared to make sure the venue still is. We cannot cancel events due to inclement weather, however, our Canvas Barn can keep all of your guests dry and warm inside regardless of the weather, assuring you of a beautiful and memorable occasion!

Please note that summer storms are possible, ensure you come prepared!


The Three Peaks Ranch property and surrounding area are forested. For the protection of the land and our neighbors, we cannot allow fireworks or open flames of any kind (including candles, sparklers, smoke bombs, and bonfires) on the property. Battery operated candles are allowed and we provide some beautiful flameless flicker candles for you to use at no charge!

In order to keep our grounds clean and beautiful, we cannot allow confetti, glitter, silk or fake flower petals, and other difficult to clean items. Real flower petals, rice, wildflower seed, and bubbles are always allowed. In order to keep our valley clean and void of trash, paper plates, paper wraps, beer/soda cans, and plastic cups are not allowed. Ceramic/china dishware and glassware must be used for your rehearsal and reception dinner. There are many great event rental companies, including Colorado Party Rentals and Settings Event Rentals that provide these at very affordable rates!


We require that you or your event coordinator/planner obtain day-of event insurance with host liquor liability coverage prior to your event. This insurance protects you and your guests if you are held liable for property damage or bodily injury. It will also cover any unforeseen circumstances associated with your special day. There are many affordable plans available that can be found through an internet search and typically run from $99 - $200. Check for policies at theeventhelper.com, wedsafe.com, or wedsure.com.

The ranch is yours to use exclusively for the dates of your event, including rehearsals and rehearsal dinners. You will not be sharing it with other guests. It will be your own private ranch experience!


While the ranch staff and caterer take care of the facility, ultimately, the client is responsible to ensure that the venue is left in the same condition in which it was found. The Ranch staff will take care of standard lodging cleanings. All decorations and props you have brought with you need to be removed at the end of your booking period. All trash will need to be bagged in the trash bags provided and brought to the onsite dumpster. All boxes and décor brought by the bride/groom and vendors will need to be disposed of offsite. Any dishware or cookware that is used must be cleaned and properly stored. Any excessive cleaning or reorganizing of furniture and tables/chairs will result in additional fees. Confetti and glitter cannot be used inside any of the buildings or on the grounds.


We have livestock at the ranch. Guests are welcome to pet them over the fence, but may not go into the pastures at any time. If you desire to take pictures with horses or ride a horse to your ceremony, please contact us to set this up prior to your event. You are always welcome to take photos of the livestock, and they love to come up to the lodgepole railing for some attention!


There is no need to rent an extra dance floor as our floor in the Canvas Barn is tongue and groove wood flooring so you can easily dance and party the night away on it!


The Crestone Peak and Humboldt Cabin serve as great getting ready spaces for both the bride and groom! Either space works amazingly for both wedding parties to get ready, so you can choose whichever space you like.


Westcliffe is known for being a dark sky community and for how brilliant and incredible the star gazing is here! In order to preserve and respect the stargazing in our area, we ask that you respect the Dark Sky Community and ability to see incredible amounts of stars by not bringing floor lights, disco or dance lights, etc. The Canvas Barn has dimmable string lights inside and out on the deck that make for incredibly romantic lighting and dancing under the stars, yet still allow for amazing star gazing.


Westcliffe is only 10 miles from our venue, but is a small town so there are no taxis and very few Uber drivers. We highly recommend renting a bus or shuttle to transport your guests back and forth to their local accommodations safely. There are many companies in Colorado Springs or Pueblo who offer this service.


We do have some county regulations and need to be respectful of them. Your DJ or band can play music until 10pm at a level that can be enjoyed by you and your guests but not be concert level and heard by neighboring properties a mile away. Quiet hour starts at 10 PM. Cleanup needs to be completed by 11pm. We want you to have fun at your event, but not cause noise disturbances to surrounding areas.


At the time of signing the contract, 50% of the facility fee is due. (This is a non-refundable retainer to hold your date)

1 month prior to the event, the remaining 50% of the total facility fee is due.

At that time, a refundable damage deposit of $500.00 will also be due, as well as proof of wedding liability insurance and event insurance. The damage deposit will be returned to the couple within one (1) week of the event once the property has been inspected for any potential damage during the event.

In the event of cancellation by the couple, no amount of the venue fee will be refunded, except as outlined in our cancellation policy.


In the event the Client wishes to change the date of the event, Three Peaks Ranch will allow ONE date change and every effort will be made by Three Peaks Ranch to transfer reservations in support of the new date.  If the new date is unavailable, a different date will need to be selected.


You are able to use the large stone gas fireplace in the Canvas Barn in the evenings for your rehearsal/welcome and reception dinners. Three Peaks Ranch staff will turn the fireplace on for your event and will turn it off at the conclusion of the event.
