Perfect wedding venue. Beautiful and serene. Dave and Julie went above and beyond making sure every detail and I mean every detail was attended to. Many of our attendees have called our wedding the social event of the season. Having family and wedding party stay at adjacent cabin was great. This allowed for relaxation, fun and wonderful moments. I wish I could rate them higher!!!

We recently had our wedding at Pine Peaks Event Center and it was absolutely amazing. Dave and Julie, the venue owners, truly love what they do and really help to make your wedding day/weekend run seamlessly! Having the retreat house right on sight made decorating and wedding prep so easy and most of our bridal party came on Wednesday or Thursday, so we played games, utilized the sauna, and just enjoyed our long weekend with close family and friends before the big day. Between the amenities from the retreat house and the venue, we hardly had to bring anything that we needed for our rehearsal dinner or wedding day from home. It was overall a wonderful experience! I plan to convince any of my friends who are getting married in the future to get married here so I can go back again. The entire place is so beautiful!! We received so many compliments from our guests on the venue itself.

Dave and Julie are wonderful people to work with and this place they have created was somewhere we we could comfortably call home for 4 days! To this day, family and friends still talk about how beautiful the venue was and how much fun they had at the wedding! We highly recommend Pine Peaks to everyone who is looking for special place for their special day!

We can't say enough about these guys...astonishing doesn't even touch it. Dave & Julie are hands down, the best around. They are so accommodating, and so wonderful to work with. The retreat house is perfect, the grounds are beautiful. We had DAYS to decorate, do our flowers, and relax with the wedding party in front of a fire on the porch. On the day of, Dave & Julie were there through it all, making sure everything went down flawlessly! We didn't have to bring in ANY of our own decorations as they had everything we wanted in the treasure chest. You will not find a wedding venue, for this price with this customer service anywhere else. I have recommended them to friends, and will make it a priority to visit in the coming years! Such a special day, made SO MUCH more magical because of them!!

Pine Peaks venue is not only a perfect destination for a wedding but the owners Dave and Julie are really who made everything go so smoothly and helped decorate our venue beautifully. These two were very quick to answer any questions or concerns I had and full of so many great ideas. You can tell this is a passion for these two and I could not be more thankful to have gone with Pine Peaks event center for our wedding. I recommend this place to anyone who is looking for a rustic/elegant experience up north!

Dave and Julie were absolutely wonderful! I had absolutely zero stress on my wedding day because them. The venue was gorgeous and our day was perfect. I would encourage anyone looking for a venue to visit with them! That being said, I was less than thrilled with the catering service they require you to use. Maucieri's has great food and was great to plan with! However, the day of the wedding wasn't as great as I had hoped. We had agreed on 3 different types of BBQ sauce, only two were actually provided. Not a big deal. I was mostly dissatisfied because the servers decided to clear plates before we were finished. I went to the bathroom and when I came back, my plate was gone! This also happened to my friend who left to breastfeed. Wouldn't be a big deal if they didn't take all the good away 20 minutes after the last person got their meal. When you're doing speeches, visiting, thank you's, etc., it would be nice to not have to scarf down all your food in hopes of keeping it. Overall, I would have my wedding there again. I literally had to worry about nothing and that was worth far more to me than a plate of food.

Hi Destiny, Thank you for this outstanding review. Maucieri's Catering is experiencing growing pains and has gone through intensive training with their new staff. We have seen the improvements recently and thank you for your input. Be good to each other and have a happy life. Dave and Julie

5 Stars is not enough to give Pine Peaks Event Center what they deserve for all they did to make our day as perfect as possible. They bent over backwards before, during and even after our Big Day. They had a gorgeous set up with a large decoration room for us to use! We set up just the way we wanted it (over the few days we spent there), celebrated our night away and by morning they had already taken care of the cleaning! All we had to worry about is having the best time. And that's exactly what we did. We will never be able to thank Pine Peaks Event Center (and everyone involved in making our day so special) enough for all the work they did in making our wedding day one we will never forget.
Pine Peaks Event Center responded with the following comments:
Hi, Ashley and Andy. Thank you both so much. Be good to each other in the future. Dave and Julie
