Red River Gorge Weddings at Cliffview Resort

Looking for the perfect indoor or outdoor wedding venue? It's hard to beat the gorgeous views and accommodations Cliffview Resort has to offer you. We also have great options for indoor ceremonies or wedding reception hall needs.

One of The Best Wedding Venues in Kentucky

Cliffview is one of the rare places where you can host your nuptials in either an outdoor or indoor Kentucky wedding venue.

Overlook Point 1

The start of your marriage should be perfect.

That's what we believe and what we make happen at our eastern Kentucky wedding venue. With Cliffview Resort's years of experience in hosting weddings in the Natural Bridge and Red River Gorge area, you can feel less stressed during your marriage ceremony & reception planning.

Located under an hour from Lexington, Kentucky and beautifully situated in the Red River Gorge, you and your guests will fall in love with both the venue and the team at Cliffview.

From outdoor weddings at Overlook Point to exchanging rings indoors in The Lodge or the Reception Hall, we know what it takes to make your big day perfect.

"We just had our wedding at Cliffview, and could not have been more pleased with the beautifully maintained venue and accommodating staff! They made sure our 100+ guests were well taken care of on our wedding day, and the 30+ people that stayed at the lodge that weekend continue to rave about it!"

~ Ellen G.

The Perfect Destination Wedding for 20 to 250 Guests

With four main wedding venues available to you at Cliffview Resort, your options are almost limitless.

Overlook Point

Overlook Point offers a 250-degree panoramic view of the Cowan Fork Gorge of the Red River Gorge. Located just 300 yards from the Reception Hall, you and your guests can have the benefit of an amazing outdoor ceremony in a natural setting, without having to hike to it.

The Lodge

The Cliffview Lodge is an ideal location for ceremonies & receptions with a maximum of 80 guests. Exchange rings outside on the Wedding Deck and cut your cake in the Lodge's Banquet Hall. Rent all 16 rooms of the Cliffview Lodge for your bridal party and turn your magical wedding day into a magical vacation with all those you hold dear.

The Retreat

The Retreat at Cliffview can actually be a self-contained wedding venue for up to 48 overnight guests (or up to 62 guests for wedding and reception only). From a beautiful exchanging of rings in the gazebo to wine & cheese on the two-story deck to a catered sit-down dinner reception in the kitchen/great room. Your wedding will be perfect.

The Reception Hall

Bigger guest list? We've got you taken care of! Our Reception Hall wedding venue can accommodate up to 250 guests. Keep that rustic feel, but also provide your guests with ample room while they dine and dance the night away! The large kitchen in this space allows you or your caterers to prepare meals on site.
