Looking for the perfect spot for a Texas wedding? The Gage Hotel has it all. Whether you’re looking for a place where you can wear cowboy boots with your wedding dress while standing under a vast West Texas sky among miles of open land, or envision your family and friends piling into a gorgeous little country church followed by a beautiful reception in the Gage Gardens, we’ll help make your pinterest board come to life. With a variety of beautiful indoor and outdoor spaces your options for an original and beautiful country wedding are endless.

We will make it our priority to ensure everyone is comfortable and well-taken care of so that once your guests arrive in Marathon, you can relax! We have a variety of rooms to accommodate a range of needs and budgets and our historic houses (available for rent in their entirety) are perfect for wedding parties and breathtaking photos. Our 12 Gage Restaurant will keep everyone well fed (and asking for seconds!) and the famous White Buffalo Bar is the perfectly cozy spot for everyone to gather around a fireplace after a long day of merriment.

The best part about a destination wedding at the Gage Hotel? Events held at the hotel tend to ‘take over’ our charming, little town where everything is in walking distance and guests consistently enjoy impromptu meetings at local restaurants and shops. Marathon weddings are a memory that will be cherished for all.

Please call us for more information and details or to book your weekend and let us start helping you plan your wedding today!

This large one- room house, sits adjacent to the Gage Gardens and across the street from the historic hotel. With a comfy king bed and a sweet day bed, this gorgeous space is great for couples or a small family. Filled with warm tones, high- ceilings, a fireplace and authentic Texas furniture and art, this house is a snug and relaxing home-away-from home.

Great French doors open on to private patio that overlooks the garden orchard. On beautiful days, take lunch or dinner outside while the children or dogs play among the fenced yard, and enjoy cocktails and star gazing on clear, cool nights. This house is also a favorite bridal suite or room for couples getting married in the Gage Gardens next door.  If you are interested in hearing more information about Casa Jardin or reserving the home today, call us at 1-800-884-GAGE.
