Weddings at Old St. Francis School

Hold a wedding in a former Catholic elementary school? Amen to that! - and we promise, no one will rap your knuckles with a ruler for bad behavior. In fact, we encourage you to dance in the hallways, drink on school property, laugh out loud in classrooms and more. 

Built in 1936 as the St. Francis of Assisi Catholic School, this hotel is a gem unlike any other, offering comfortable and modern guestrooms, an onsite brewery, a year-round soaking pool, quaint small bars and more. After your big event, guests can enjoy the entire property, taking in the original artwork, stopping for a glass of wine or a pint of ale, gathering together in any number of cozy spots. We even have four cottages that accommodate groups up to 10 - you can host an entire wedding party in just one of them.

We have both indoor and outdoor event spaces, accommodating up to 140 guests - so if you're just in from the ski slopes, we have plenty of warm fireplaces and cozy bars. But if you're hot-weather hikers or sunbathers, you might want to have your event on one of our many patios festooned in lush flora beneath the sun or the stars. The Old St. Francis School is one of the most charming venues in all of central Oregon - it will leave you and your guests with wonderful memories.
