Elkins Resort Wedding Reviews

Our October wedding here was by far the best experience ever. The resort itself is of course beautiful and incredibly scenic but the amazing staff and help we received was what made the day above and beyond our expectations! If you are looking for a place to get married I highly recommend Elkins. We are already looking forward to coming back for our anniversary!

“If you are looking for a place to relax and enjoy yourself in the PNW this resort should be at the top end of any lists there are. The accommodations were terrific, and the staff was outstanding going above and beyond to accommodate any guests and group events they host. That was what my nieces wedding of almost 200 people experienced, anyway. If you’re looking…chose this place!”

“Elkins is amazing! My husband and I were married there in December 2011; our friends and family had the resort to ourselves and the staff, the food, the atmosphere…. everything was so well put together, they really helped make our day memorable. We’ve gone back often over the years to rent a cabin for the weekend or grab a bite at the restaurant and it’s always a fantastic time. Elkins rocks, and the beauty of Priest Lake is unbeatable!!

We got married there in early May- the venue and particularly the staff were fantastic. The staff was on point, helpful, motivated and self-starters. The venue itself was delightful, we had the ceremony outside overlooking priest lake and the snowcapped Selkirk mountains. The catering was delicious for the reception dinner, the rehearsal dinner, breakfast and lunch. If you haven’t visited Priest lake, make Elkins your home base to explore- I can’t recommend it highly enough.”

“We hosted our destination wedding at Elkins Resort and couldn’t have asked for a better location. Asking all of our guests to travel from Seattle, Spokane, Los Angeles, and Oregon — we knew we had to ask them to come somewhere special and this was just the place. We started our long weekend off with multiple family dinners in the days leading up to the weekend. and had guests arriving throughout the week. On Friday night we welcomed guests with a beach bonfire on the beach with kegs, wine, S’more’s and hot dogs. It was such a unique and fun time.

The wedding day itself was perfect. We loved having all of our guests in one place. We opted for a tented outdoor reception in early June and even with some windy and cooler weather it was gorgeous and couldn’t have asked for a better experience. The staff was so flexible with all of our requests and let us truly create an experience unique to us. Food was a big deal, and the culinary team didn’t disappoint. Our dinner was DELICIOUS.

Jennifer was amazing to work with throughout the process and on the wedding day, as well. We can’t thank her enough for helping us craft exactly the day we wanted.”

Great Views

“Great place with great views. Rustic cabins are available. Cabins have more amenities than other nearby resorts including televisions, full size kitchens, and updated bathrooms. Great common areas to sit and soak up the scenic views. Food is good in the restaurants. Nice size bar that can serve as a large sized meeting room too. Can fit about 50”
