YMCA of the Rockies – Estes Park Center offers these services:

Ceremonies, Receptions, Rehearsal Dinners, Lodging, and Officiants




The YMCA of the Rockies has been a part of Estes Park since the 1890s. In 1920 the historic Mountain Side Lodge was constructed by John Timothy Stone. In 1997 it was listed on the National Register of Historic Places by the Department of the Interior. Today, the lodge is now our most popular wedding site because of the incomparable views and rustic aesthetic. In addition, we are proud to offer two other outdoor ceremony sites, three indoor ceremony sites, and a total of five reception and rehearsal dinner sites.



Ashley Montano, from YMCA of the Rockies – Estes Park Center, offers this fantastic tip and memory for Estes Park Wedding couples:

“Plan at least one year in advanced. And have fun with it! One time, this past summer, an elk interrupted a ceremony at our Mountain Side Chapel. It made for great photo opportunities for the couple, and I am sure unforgettable memories.”

Ashley loves that she has the opportunity to work with so many amazing vendors.

“The Estes Park Wedding Association allows our venue and brides to work with the best artists in the business! We are all creative beings that strive to make each and every wedding magical. I am never bored!”
