“The Baxter is a beautiful and very functional venue… The staff was very helpful in answering all of our questions promptly and providing what we needed. The drink prices at the bar are very reasonable, and they allow you to buy beer and wine by the keg/bottle which saves money!” – Joe & Katie
Gallatin Gateway and Paradise Valley Ranches
Capture the spirit of Montana by holding your wedding on a scenic ranch in close proximity to The Baxter. The Cottonwood Creek Ranch and the Tom Miner Creek Ranch offer scenic beauty unmatched by other event venues in the area.
Located 15 minutes south of Bozeman, Cottonwood Creek Ranch is a 270-acre working ranch with an active wildlife migration corridor. When your guests arrive, they’ll walk through the trees and over a bridge to a gorgeous meadow revealing the wedding arch perfectly situated along Cottonwood Creek. There’s something enchanting about exchanging vows under the shaded trees alongside the majestically flowing creek. Enjoy a reception on top of the open hayfield, where your guests will enjoy panoramic views of the picturesque surroundings and the breathtaking sunset. This dramatic vantage point sets the stage for an evening full of love and laughter as you dance the night away under the stars.
“I can’t tell you how many times people have just complimented us…months later people are still talking about (our) wedding and a lot of that had to do with having it at The Baxter.” – Paul & Amy
