• INCLEMENT WEATHER
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 can keep all of your guests dry and warm inside the covered and heated patio. We cannot cancel events due to inclement weather, however, we will do our best to make sure it is still a beautiful and memorable occasion.
Please note that we do have summer storms almost daily between 2-4 PM.
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) on the property. Battery operated candles etc are allowed.
In order to keep our grounds clean and beautiful, we cannot allow rice, birdseed, confetti, glitter, silk or fake flower petals, and other difficult to clean items. Real flower petals and bubbles are always allowed.
We require that you obtain day-of event insurance prior to your event. 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.
Additionally, Three Peaks Ranch has it's own insurance to cover your event.
We love pets and are happy to discuss including yours as part of the event. Any animals brought onto the property will need prior approval. Sadly, cats are not welcome. If you do bring your dog/s to be a part of your event they are welcome at the Main Cabin and there is a 1 acre fenced in yard for them to run and play. If they are out of the Cabin or yard, they need to be on a leash to prevent them from peeing on the Glamping tents.
There are no noise restrictions on our property as we have no neighbors and 85 Acres! We want you to have an awesome party, celebrate and enjoy your day! Eat, drink and be merry!
On-site parking is limited to 110 personal vehicles. Shuttle service or rideshare to and from Westcliffe is available for events with over 200 guests. You can arrange this service, or we can provide recommendations on services available in the area.
We want you and your guests to be safe. Leaving vehicles overnight is allowed: pickup must be before 10 AM the next day.

You are allowed to have your own open bar at our venue. The definition of an open bar is that no alcohol brought onto the property can be sold for a price.
