Cider Mountain is a beautiful event venue located between Coeur d’ Alene and Sandpoint. It sits on 160 acres of gorgeous scenery, has perfect facilities for a wedding and you’re allowed to bring in your own caterer! This would be an ideal venue for the couple who wants a unique setting and wants to spend time with their family and bridal party before the wedding (it sleeps 40 people). Due to some cancellations, they have a couple PRIME wedding dates left for summer 2013!
Here’s a little more about this venue…
Where are you located?
Athol, Idaho. Mid-point between Coeur d’Alene and Sandpoint. Very close to Farragut Park and Silverwood Theme Park.
What type of wedding does your venue work best for?
Unique weddings! Casual or “woodsy” weddings, or couples who would like to do something different, like bring their horses for the ceremony. Couples looking to spend extended time relaxing with family and friends in the days before the wedding. Musical families may also enjoy having a family jam or even recording while they are all together for the special event.
Privacy! The house is located on 160 private wooded acres and is rented out to your group exclusively. It is designed to warmly welcome guests of all ages. Kids (and adults!) love the free arcade games, tether ball, volleyball, basketball, soccer, playhouses, pool table, “Dance Central” games, a jukebox and a special night in your own private night club, with stage, disco lights, karaoke, and an incredible sound system. Elderly guests will appreciate the stair lift to get up to their room at night. Besides being a wonderful place to spend time together, at approximately $22 per person per night, the lodging is a great value for out-of-town friends and family. The house has a huge, well-stocked commercial kitchen, which can be used by any caterer, and is a dream for a family who wants to do some of their own cooking. Also, your out-of-town guests will enjoy a day at the NW’s largest Theme Park, Silverwood, which is only 10 minutes away.
What is the capacity of your venue?
Capacity varies depending on area and use. Call to discuss. We have had weddings of more than 100 people. Overnight capacity is 40.
What are your catering guidelines?
Guests may bring in their own caterer, (we have recommendations too) or cook for themselves! We have enough dishes for the 40 overnight guests, but dishes for a large event will have to be rented.
Pick your favorite spot! There is plenty of natural, pretty, open fields near the main building.
What is your advice for couples planning their wedding?
My hope for them is that they will feel free to plan a day that reflects their own personality, as well as the traditions of their families. I hope they find time to relax and really enjoy being the center of this special gathering of two families and groups of friends.
What is included in your packages?
We are simply a large vacation rental home, with lots of amenities, space, and a great little night club/party room attached to it for a reception! We can make recommendations for services for your event, but you are free to plan your special day any way you’d like. The staffed party room is rented separately, by the hour, from the rest of the house. Summer weddings can rent from Monday to Sunday. Make it a wedding with a reunion or a vacation for you and your bridal party.
What is the price range of your venue?
For a wedding group, we rent from Monday to Sunday (6 nights) for $5300 in the summer season. This includes use of the entire main house and all three cabins for up to 40 people. Three RV hook-ups are available for $190/week each. The party room, staffed with a sound engineer and assistant, is $90/hour. Wedding is billed by number of guests who attend in addition to the 40 already staying on the property. $10 per person. (So, the wedding event fee for a 100-guest wedding is $600.00 in addition to the house rental). Off season rentals can be a shorter duration. Call for quotes.
Due to a cancellation, Cider Mountain has PRIME dates open for summer ’13, call 866-787-2101 for more info!
