Deadwood is a common venue for destination weddings. While the 1899 Inn is relatively small, weddings with fewer than 25 guests can be accommodated comfortably on the property.
The foyer, sitting room, parlor and dining room on the main floor are connected by sets of pocket doors that can be opened or closed to create a series of small rooms, or one large one. The covered porch on the front of the house is accessed by the foyer through the front door, while the rear covered wraparound porch can be accessed through the dining room and kitchen. A rough brick patio sits just adjacent to the rear porch, and a concrete and finished brick patio extend toward the rear guesthouse. Bistro lights criss-cross between the two houses and to the top of the adjacent rock retaining wall, creating an intimate outdoor gathering space. Flowers in the garden beds along the houses bloom throughout the growing season: daffodils and lilacs in the spring, lilies and peonies in the summer, and daisies last well into the autumn.
During good weather, the inside and outside spaces can be combined to host more than fifty people for receptions and cocktail parties.
The inn can accommodate up to 14 overnight guests for wedding parties. Several nearby hotels and inns – all within a six-minute walk – can accommodate additional guests.
The 1899 Inn can help guests plan wedding events and arrange for décor, food, musicians, and officiant. Contact us for more details.
