Tucked into the mountainside near West Vail is a gathering spot unlike any other. Built by the Town of Vail in 2003, Donovan Pavilion is a stunning timber and stone mountain lodge that makes a statement in itself. Add the views and surrounding 50 acres of park and open space and you'll see why this is a truly unique venue for very special events.

Nearly 250 guests can be accommodated in this gracious 5,200 square foot Pavilion. Another 100 guests can be easily seated on the 3,000 square foot terrace overlooking Gore Creek. Smaller groups will find themselves comfortably and intimately at home. Parking is convenient and plentiful on site. You can be flexible - have your ceremony here in the lodge, out on the grounds or in one of the chapels in the valley.
