Have you been searching for a special place for your wedding, retreat, or team offsite?

You've just found it! We are the ideal partner for multi-day weddings, transformative therapy retreats, unique board or team offsites, and more!

Nestled in a stunning mountain valley on 17.5 peaceful acres in central Colorado (just 35 miles southwest of the historic town of Salida) our flagship location – The Steel Horse – offers everything you need to host an extraordinary group experience.

Packages include the use of unique indoor & outdoor event spaces with mountain views, event supplies & services, property exclusivity, and overnight accommodations that encompass a mix of private guest rooms, full hookup RV sites, 'glamping' geodesic domes, and tent camping sites. When we don’t have group events, guest rooms, 'glamping' domes, and RV sites can be booked individually. Learn more about our packages below.


Choose your dream mountain backdrop to celebrate with your closest friends & family. We specialize in hosting affordable multi-day, rustic, DIY weddings.

Our Story

Partnering with The Colorado Retreat Co. ensures you're delivering more than just an event... you're booking an experience.

The concept of The Colorado Retreat Co. manifested over more than a decade of planning events at various venues around the world. Desiring a stunning location that was surrounded by nature, offered unique gathering spaces, and was suited to help people reconnect to each other, themselves, and the outdoors by disconnecting from the hustle and bustle, owner & operator Christina Christian found the perfect flagship location at the Steel Horse.

What a beautiful setting for camping, a wedding or retreat. We stopped for an overnight and had a lovely stay. We visited the Great Sand Dunes on the way and there's lots of other things to do in the region. We'll be back!

It’s a beautiful place surrounded by beautiful mountains! Clean, well lit and so welcoming. There’s so many places on the property to enjoy, whether it’s a walk down by the creek, or gathering place around a warm fire. The community kitchen is wonderful! And the picnic area for everyone to come together for a meal, if they want, is so great!
