Known as Durango's relaxed wedding venue, River Bend Ranch is the ideal location for a wedding. Nestled in the beautiful Animas Valley just a few miles north of Durango, we are less than ten minutes to historic Main Avenue in downtown Durango. Our event barn is decorated in a rustic elegance and operates as a wedding and event venue all year long. We have on-site lodging options and four unique ceremony sites with stunning views allow you to choose the deck, lakeside, the big willow, or the cabin willow.
While you'll love the scenery, we are also proud to be Durango’s relaxed wedding venue. We don’t do stress here. Our goal is to create a relaxed environment for your wedding and everything we do is designed to support that objective. You can take a deep breath of fresh mountain air knowing that your venue will take care of you.
