A rustic ranch venue in the heart of the Elk Mountains.
Up to 350 Guests
With plenty of room to spare to get away from it all, the ranch provides the perfect setting for guest counts of anywhere from 10-350. Larger events will still feel intimate in the meadow.
Private Alpine Pond
Our unique bar area allows for your guests to truly experience all of what a mountain wedding should have to offer.
Our sales manager can walk you through all of the possibilities on the property and come up with a list of resources to fit your needs and budget.
The Darien Ranch has been in the family since 1938 when it was purchased from the Osgood estate. The beautiful Crystal River flows through the Ranch, where fish abound. Fly fishing, catch and release, is allowed for the wedding parties enjoyment. The Crystal River Railroad transported marble blocks, including the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, Lincoln Memorial and many others, from the quarries near Marble through the Ranch. Marble blocks can still be seen on the Ranch along the old railroad grade.
