We have 6 cabins on the property that sleep a total of 40 guests. We require all cabins to be booked for a 2-night minimum for weddings over 25 people. A lodge that sleeps an additional 23 guests can be booked off-site (next door to the property), however, they have a 3-night minimum.

Colorado Springs is just under an hour away and has all of the amenities and accommodations of a large city, and Denver is also a less than 2-hour drive. 

Engaged Sourcing is one of our preferred vendors and they are a free resource for couples that help coordinate hotel blocks and transportation. They are partnered with hotels in town and pass on discounts to your guests as well as coordinate transportation logistics.

How will my guests get to Pikes Peak Ranch?

Guests staying on-site will be able to drive and park here (3 spots per cabin =15 spots). We have additional parking for 15 vehicles.
