Schweitzer Mountain Resort




At the Schweitzer Mountain resort, allow the panoramic views of three mountain ranges and sparkling Lake Pend Oreille take your breath away. A classic mountain retreat, Schweitzer gives nature-loving couples an idyllic place to unite with each other and the earth. Every direction you turn, the panoramic vistas deliver spectacular wedding photographs. How many couples can be photographed on a ski lift, embracing one other while soaring above a majestic lake? The backdrop of snow-peaked ridges and rolling green hills will mesmerize your wedding guests. They will always remember riding the Great Escape Quad up to the summit. For an outdoor ceremony, say your vows on the beautiful village sun deck. Listen to birds singing and the mountain breeze rustling through the trees. Afterwards, admire the stylish navy blue light fixtures and wood-paneled walls of the dining room. The elegant tree-bark centerpieces and expansive windows brings the natural beauty indoors. Dance in the romantic glow of candlelight as the moon’s reflection streams through the windows. Rising majestically to welcome your guests, Schweitzer Mountain is a destination for activities ranging from zip lining to huckleberry picking. Both exciting and tranquil, the Mountain sets the stage for a blissful marriage.
