Buzz worthy - An Eventective User from Atlanta, GA

We hosted our son's rehearsal here in August 2015.....our guests are STILL talking about how fabulously over the top it was - but in a wonderfully understated way. Everyone was blown away by how comfortable the whole thing was, how was Ashly they could visit with everyone, how amazing the food was, and how there was fun and country beauty around every corner. Well done Settlers!

Absolutely Amazing Venue - An Eventective User from Montana

Corporate Event: Our group absolutely loved Settlers Creek – raved about it in fact. We heard comments like “best food I’ve ever had,” “how on earth did you find such a cool place”, etc.. There were several locals (Spokane) that have lived in the area all their life and had never heard of you – I have a feeling you will be getting some more business coming your way. Thanks again for everything – absolutely amazing – I appreciate you making me look good!

Authentic and Unique - An Eventective User from Pacific Northwest

Settlers Creek offers the perfect venue to make your event both unique and authentic. The Varelas are creative, fun to work with and work hard to make sure each event is as successful as possible. We at Framework Meetings and Destinations have included Settlers Creek for our corporate, association, culinary tourism and spouse tour and activity programs for several years. Each group has enjoyed the ability to use the features of the venue in different ways to make their events shine - no cookie cutter events here! Highly recommended!

Perfect wedding venue - An Eventective User from Coeur D'Alene, Idaho

My husband and I got married here in 2010 and it was the most beautiful venue and Shannon, the owner, was absolutely amazing. She helped plan everything from decor, food, and even coordinated and directed on the wedding day. She was my life saver. The food was delicious, the location is stunning, and the services provided are among the best.

Locals and out-of-towners Loved it! - An Eventective User from Coeur d'Alene, ID

Having my wedding at Settlers Creek was a dream come true. Being from Coeur d'Alene and having a large group of locals attend our wedding, I wanted something different and memorable... This definitely fulfilled these wishes. The service was amazing, the food was great and the best part was there was no stress on our families because Shannon and Chris took care of all of our rentals. Planning was also pretty easy because we didn't have to go through multiple vendors. I would recommend Settlers Creek to anyone- its really is a dream come true!

Outstanding Service - An Eventective User from Coeur d Alene

2009, was the first year Coeur d’ Alene hosted the Idaho State Harley Davidson Motorcycle Rally. As the coordinator I contacted Settlers Creek to bid on the food for the participants. Their proposal was not the least expensive but was detailed to the point of what color the napkins were to be. It was clear to me from the beginning that Chris and Shannon were not just food vendors they became partners in the event. I knew we were in for a show when on the weekend of the event two tractor trailers showed up at the county fairgrounds with Settlers Creeks entire facilities. Their equipment was so impressive that we changed their cooking location to the middle of the event. It was common to see rally participants taking pictures next to the smokers or very large grills. 2009 being the first year we could not predict how many people would just come on the first day over and above the people who pre-registered. To our amazement over 100 people registered on the day of the event. Chris jumped into action getting the extra food and working all night to prepare it. The meal was perfect, the service was outstanding and the event went off without a hitch. We administered a post rally survey to our riders. The comments were outstanding. “I have been going to rally’s for ten years, the food at this rally was the best I ever had”, “We could not believe the rally would provide such good food, our complements to Settlers”. We were awarded the rally in 2010 also. We believe that Settlers played a big part in our success. Needless to say Chris and Shannon were our partners in 2010, out doing themselves from 2009.

Great Outdoor Venue for Conference - An Eventective User from Boise

We have worked with Chris and Shannon since they first opened this venue and have always had an excellent experience. We frequently request very specific foods or wines and they are always most willing to accomodate our wishes. Settlers Creek is a very unique setting and one that allows out of state and international guests a great opportunity to enjoy the beautiful natural environment as well as the agricultural heritage of Idaho. Whenever we are involved in planning meetings or tours that include the Coeur d'Alene area we always try to include an event at Settlers Creek.

Great Owners, Beautiful Venue - An Eventective User from Spokane

Shannon and Chris are the owners of Beautiful Settlers Creek in CDA, ID. I have had the pleasure of working with them quite a few different times and everytime they have shown over and over again why Settlers Creek will continue to be the venue of choice. I have been in the wedding business for almost 10 years now and I KNOW from expierence, that Shannon and Chris work very, very hard to keep the view of your wedding a reality. They facilitate the entire wedding day itself, plus go above the and beyond my expectations as a vendor. By far one of the best venues and venue owners around. Thank you Shannon and Chris for doing everything you can to help make these Brides "Dream Day" come true. Thank you guys for everything you do for your Brides and of course me! Have a great Season.

My Dream Wedding - An Eventective User from Star, ID

Settlers Creek was a dream place to have our wedding. The venue is gorgeous! Everything is well kept, clean, and manicured! Shannon and Chris were wonderful to work with and know their stuff. They were there with helpful tips and ideas the entire process and made the planning go so smoothly. On the day of the wedding, I knew everything was going to be taken care of, and I was essentially worry-free because of them. Every detail was taken into account (water for the guests upon their arrival due to the hot weather, golf cart transportation for the elderly guests, etc. …EVERYTHING!) Also, the food was to die for. We had so many compliments about the food and service during our wedding! People are still telling us that the food at our wedding was the best food they had ever eaten at a wedding and rivaled their favorite restaurants. We had a wide variety of choices to choose from to form our wedding menu. Overall our wedding could not have been more perfect.

Incredible atmosphere for our fundraiser - An Eventective User from Executive Director CASA Program

The Settler's Creek venue is heads above any other venue in North Idaho. Our CASA Country Hoedown was such a great success due to a large part from the gorgeous setting, incredible food and their great attention detail. Our guests loved the setting so much everyone has asked to have our Hoedown become an annual event at Settler's Creek. It is an amazing treasure!

Lights Camera Action - An Eventective User from Spokane, WA
