“Picture Perfect Wedding”
Reviewed January 29, 2013

My husband and I planned our wedding at Black Canyon Inn based on online reviews. When we arrived we were pleased to find it even more amazing than we expected. We stayed the few days leading up to the wedding and our wedding night.

Our room was very nice, clean, and comfortable. The view was just gorgeous, as were the grounds. I only wish we had had more time to spend in the room, but we had 30 family and friends to entertain the days leading up to the wedding, so we spent much of our time off the property.

The only problem we had with the room was the night before the wedding. We wanted to relax in a hot bath but when we turned on the water, the hot water wouldn't turn off! It was just pouring out. Normally I would have shut off the water and not worried about it till morning (it was after 11 pm), but the next morning was our wedding day, and I absolutely could not be without (hot) water. We called and emergency number and someone came right away to address the problem. We did not end up getting our bath, but we were very pleased with how responsive they were.

The wedding day was beautiful. We couldn't have asked for a better setting or better service from the staff. Absolutely everything was perfect. We originally planned to have the wedding at the pond, however when we arrived we immediately changed to the pavilion. The pond is gorgeous, and perhaps had we had a smaller group we would have stayed at that location, but after seeing it we felt it might be difficult on some of our guests to get to the pond and we knew it would be crowded. They allowed us to move the ceremony to the pavilion without any problems. One thing to consider if you are planning your wedding there - you can't see it in any of the pictures, but the road is just on the other side of the trees at the pond, so when cars drive by you will see/hear them. This was another reason we moved to the pavilion.

After the ceremony we took pictures at the pavilion and all across the grounds (we had gone into RMNP prior to the ceremony for more pictures). Aaron Cathcart was our photographer and he was phenomenal. I very highly recommend him. We got so many wonderful pictures we have about a dozen favorites. We also got a shot at the pavilion with everyone who attended. It is awesome to have had a place that worked so well for our group picture.

We then went to Twin Owls for our reception. Beautiful restaurant, friendly staff, and good food. I wouldn't say the food was great (I was expecting more), but considering we had a large group they did an excellent job. The one thing that was amazing - the scallops. Get them. You won't regret it!

Overall we couldn't be happier with our stay at Black Canyon and our wedding day. We will definitely return.

My son was recently married at the pavilion at Black Canyon Inn. Absolutely beautiful backdrop! The events planner, Laura, was excellent. We used one of the photographers frequently used at this location. Can't wait for the pictures! Wedding went off without a hitch. Would definitely recommend this facility for a wedding, couples retreat or family vacation.

Room Tip: If you are planning a wedding here, be sure to ask for the condos closest to the pavilion.

The Black Canyon Inn is such an awesome place to go and relax! Never before have I enjoyed the luxuries that Black Canyon inn has to offer. Our condo was very clean and organized with a beautiful view! I love the location being so close to the Stanley Hotel. It is seriously a beautiful location and a good place to take a break from the world. I didn't get the chance to eat at the steakhouse but I hear it is great. The management is awesome and so are all the employees!
I wish I was there today!!

We are enjoying our 4 night stay at the Black Canyon Inn. The condo has a balcony with a beautiful mountain & pond view. The unit is clean and well furnished with adequate kitchenware. The firm mattress is comfortable for hubby's bad back. The staff is friendly & helpful. We are very pleased & plan to come back again sometime.

We have traveled to Estes Park several times and this past trip was one of our favorites. We traveled with our children and wanted to have a little extra room to spread out. We rented unit F7. F7 is a 730 square foot one-bedroom condo located within the Black Canyon Inn in Estes Park, Colorado. The kitchen had everything one could need for cooking, the living room was comfortable, and the the master bath offers a two-person jetted tub, glass-inclosed stand up shower. Within the bathroom there is also a washer and dryer. We did not use the pull out sofa, but instead requested a rollaway which worked out perfect. Another added bonus, the owners of this unit have it stocked with fantastic board games. A highlight of the trip after a full day of hiking.

Our balcony offered unobstructed views of Rocky Mountain National Parks, Lumpy Ridge and the Twin Owls rock formation. Our view also looked out over a gorgeous farm where the cattle roamed all throughout the day.I would suggest if you are looking for a quieter unit that this is the way to go.

We added an extra night to our stay and had to move to Unit C6 for our last night. This unit overlooks the parking lot and Twin Owls Restaurant where there is often a rehearsal or wedding taking place, which equals more noise. There is no AC in the units, so windows open on a hot summer day is a necessity. Also, I felt as if the condition of F7 exceeded the condition of C6, but still provided a pleasant stay.

We did use the pool, small but warm and the kids loved it.

The staff at Black Canyon Inn were wonderful, always answered or help with anything we needed!
We hope to return and possible inquire to see if there is a larger unit overlooking the farm/mountains!

Room Tip: F7 was our favorite!

BCI is simply a great place to stay. This was our second time and it was just as wonderful and relaxing as was the first time. It was nice to come back and stay in the same condo unit, as it made us feel like it was our home away from home. With it's location on the edge of town you have a feeling of seclusion, yet still close to town. Besides the condo amenities we had a great view of Lumpy Ridge and Long Peaks from our deck, a swiming pool and restaurant (The Twins Owls) on site. We look forward to future visits.

We just got back from a three night stay and we had a blast! We had the unit B1. It was very clean and had everything we needed. Plenty of room for our three adults and two kds, more tvs than we needed. Only thing I'd do next time is stay in a second floor unit so we could keep the windows open and feel better about it. We still had amazing views even on the first floor. The elk came right up to the pond in front of our unit, it was awesome! Perfect location so close maybe 3 min to town. Wish we had ate at the steak house on site but had the kids so next time for sure, it smelled wonderful! We would love to come back.
