Elk Lake Resort




You've dreamed of your wedding day for a lifetime, and you’ve chosen the perfect date and the perfect soul mate. And now, you’ll find the unrivaled Montana wedding location at Elk Lake Resort. The freedom, superlative natural beauty, and cost-effectiveness of this Montana natural wedding venue make it a stunning wedding destination. Set in Montana's spectacularly beautiful, yet pristinely wild and undeveloped Centennial Valley, the resort provides an authentic old-west backdrop for a wedding as individual as the two people joining their lives under the big sky. Towering trees surround the venue and a placid lake laps the shore. A lovely meadow punctuated by aspens and bordered by a cheery creek brings the natural beauty up-close on your wedding day. Rough barn board siding, an old log barn, cedar shakes, scattered antiques, and log furnishings are just a few of the enhancements that take this authentic western wedding venue to the next level. Feast your eyes on gorgeous views from the sunny and airy dining room or grab a log barstool and belly up to the old-time bar for cocktails to celebrate your Montana mountain wedding! Share your vows lakeside, against the spectacular Rocky Mountains, on a private aspen grove, or along a creek in the mountains. Elk Lake Resort overflows with natural beauty in every direction—the perfect foil for every nature-loving couple.
