Perfect Party Venue, An Eventective User from DURANGO, CO

I threw my mom a 50th birthday party at Ridgewood and it was amazing! The location and the building were gorgeous, and the staff had it all set up and ready for us! The kitchen is also perfect if you have food at your party. The staff was so kind and helpful the whole time! It was an amazing place for a party of any kind.

Located along the Million Dollar Highway, mid-way between the historic towns of Durango and Silverton, Colorado and high up in the Rocky Mountains, Cascade Village is your most spectacular option for resort-style weddings & special events. If incredible beauty, tranquility and an amazing experience is what you seek, look no further. For weddings, we can provide you both a stunning outdoor wedding venue (in a meadow surrounded by magnificent mountains, aspen tress and wildflowers) and a lovely indoor reception facility that features windows looking out on Engineer and Needles mountains.
