CEREMONY & RECEPTION
Every ceremony should reflect the personality and heart of the couple, whether religious, spiritual or secular, formal or laid back, traditional or contemporary.
The rustic Aspen arbor is the ceremony backdrop with the "take your breath away" view framed through it. Your outdoor reception can be held on numerous places around the 9 acre property. A favorite spot is in the Aspen grove near the 10' x 12' Colorado style beamed pavilion. The log cabin can be used for wedding preparations, catering, overnight guests, smaller receptions, cocktail hour, or for your honeymoon. There are many different uses for it depending on how you want your wedding and reception to flow.
The interior log cabin, appointed with vaulted, tongue and groove beamed ceiling is an ideal place where your family and guests can come together to celebrate your special day. Accommodations are for up to 6 guests in the main cabin with a king bedroom and two other queen bedrooms. A new groom's bunkhouse, sleeping another 5 guests, will be available in early summer 2020.

Really Blessed Weddings & Events
You don't want your wedding or vacation to look like any other average event or stay. By choosing Really Blessed Cabin & Wedding Venue, there will be no comparison with the service, backdrop (that amazing view) and amenities that Really Blessed Cabin offers you. The view is not often seen in the Pikes Peak region. The summit of Pikes Peak is only 7 miles away and the roadbed and the Incline Rail tracks are visible on our side of the mountain. We have a telescope in the living room for your viewing pleasure of the Rocky Mountains and ridges. We have views virtually all directions except the woods on the north side which faces a gold mine! The cabin is off the Highway about 1.4 miles... but one should expect a bit of bumpy drive for this level of privacy away from neighbors and this view. I would suggest bringing sufficient coffee, groceries and supplies along with clothing as we are a bit remote and once here, you may not want to leave except for further sightseeing. Buena Vista, Mt Princeton-Antero are about 1.5 hours to the west... well worth visiting as well as Garden of the Gods, Pikes Peak Summit, Air Force Academy, and the various Federal and State Parks and Reserves.
