Who doesn’t love a destination wedding? With the Great Room and seating for 70, accommodations for twelve, our year-round beautiful landscape and a wide variety of nearby activities for visitors to enjoy, Paonia and Wisehart Springs Inn will make the ideal backdrop for your once-in-a-lifetime event.

Whether you want to rent the whole house for several days or just have one big party night, we can help connect you with the caterers, wedding planners, photographers, bartenders and tour guides who can help make everything perfect. We are the venue of choice for your next party or house concert! Our main hall comfortably seats 70 . . . after dinner just clear out the tables and dance the night away. The main room opens out to a comfortable outdoor seating/fire-pit area and overlooks the North Fork Valley with our own resident yaks to the southeast. We have hosted a number of fantastic reunions and concerts with rented amps and catered meals and we can’t wait to do it again!

If you are seeking a local officiant for your wedding or other event, consider Paonia resident Carolyn Ringo:

Retreats and Workshops

Organization Retreat with smiling people and mountains

Host retreat for The Hive, Paonia’s collaborative workspace

Want a friendly and inspiring atmosphere to promote learning or teamwork? Our setting opens the mind and relaxes the body so that information – no matter how personal or challenging – has a chance to get integrated. Bring your staff for team building, your yogis for meditation, or your colleagues for some serious work time. We stay out of the way, open the windows and stoke the fire so you can really connect with your topic.

If you’d like to plan something unique but aren’t quite sure what, the North Fork Valley is home to some wonderful yoga, dance and martial arts teachers, as well as excellent family therapists, work coaches and event planners. We’d be happy to connect you!


Here’s what people are saying about hosting their events with us:

Sharon Bailey, Executive Director of Elsewhere Studios: “The Wisehart Springs Inn is the perfect setting for any occasion. Big enough to house a crowd, yet small enough for any event to be intimate. Art and Erin are so easy to work with and are genuinely interested in your event being an enchanted success.”

Joanna Calabrese, The Hive Paonia: “Every time I visit Wisehart Springs Inn I feel like I’ve been transported to an enchanted world of luxury and ease. Art & Erin are the most warm and gracious hosts and the space they have created is exquisite. With loads of natural light and a large and flexible indoor and outdoor space for meeting, it is the ideal place for hosting work retreats. There’s something about this magical castle on the hill that brings out the joy, excitement, and focus in people and makes them uber-inspired and productive…”

Kelli Hepler, Delta County Tourism Coordinator:  “Wisehart Springs is nothing short of a work of art that you can stay the night in or host an event in. The hosts are really fine people with a great sense of community. We love to hold meetings there and have had great comments from others who have held special events there.”
