Your destination wedding at the Black Diamond Lodge offers natural elegance and mountain comfort in the heart of the Colorado Rockies. Your guests will enjoy an entire weekend of conviviality and celebration. No driving and no hurry, just good times with those you love the best. Let us help you turn your three hour wedding into a three day event. Private dining room, hot tubs, game room, hiking trails, BBQ grills, fire pit. As casual or upscale as you want it. Your imagination's the limit.

Hundred year-old aspen trees form a perfect canopy for exchanging vows followed by an unforgettable reception with views of the mountains, cliffs and tree tops. Dance the night away then walk to your room, safe, exhilarated and in everlasting wedded bliss.

The lodge is under new ownership as of last September. We just finished updating many of our lodging amenities including new light fixtures, paint, carpet, mattresses, bedding, and a full lobby overhaul. It's a beautiful, updated venue - the only of its type in the four-corners area.

We sleep 46 people in 12 rooms and include access to a community kitchen, large game room, movie room, breakfast room and spa area with three hot tubs, a sauna and steam room. We have a flexible payment structure that allows guests to pay us directly so groups almost always pass all lodging costs directly to their guests. There are also many condos nearby that are able to sleep an additional 100+ guests. The fifth night is half price. Discounts offered for weekdays, off-season and last minute bookings. Choose to have your guests pay for their own accommodations. Pet friendly!

"Great location & amazing food, highly recommended!" - Kristi & Miles

"There are multiple places on the property for a ceremony. We picked the meadow with the amazing mountain backdrop. The rooms at Silverpick Lodge are great, plus there are hot tubs, a fire pit, multiple kitchens, large living space."  -Katie

"We really valued the freedom of doing what we wanted for our wedding on our own timeline and having a laid-back atmosphere and Silverpick Lodge delivered just this. Not to mention the space for lodging is awesome, we did a three-day wedding weekend, and almost all our guests were able to stay in the main lodge or the condos on site, it was the best being able to walk down a flight of stairs from the reception to our rooms or to the after party at the outdoor fire pit. Could not be happier with our choice!" -Mike
