Lory’s convenient location to Fort Collins makes it a quick getaway to natural surroundings with lake views and nearby hiking trails for your guests to enjoy. The Timber Picnic area can accommodate 100 people and is the perfect location to host a laid back reception where guests can enjoy a game of horseshoes while drinking cocktails from a mason jar. The Soldier Canyon waterfall is a just a short walk from the Timber Picnic area and runs during the early spring and is the ideal spot for the newlyweds to take stunning wedding portraits. For a smaller group the South Eltuck Group Picnic Area is perfect, offering covered tables to shade your guests from the midday sun and a spectacular view of Horsetooth Reservoir. For a more formal gathering the Soldier Canyon Group Picnic Area includes a stage, which is the perfect spot to say your vows, have your first dance or throw the bouquet!
