Dining Venus at The Home Ranch
The Home Ranch Dining Room
Dining venues are varied at The Home Ranch. You won’t be bored. The Dining Room is the hub of the Lodge which was built in 1980. Built of log reminiscent of Colorado homesteaders, it has stunning views of the open meadow and farm gardens out the windows. The open fireplace makes it homey and the light in this room at breakfast is amazing.
Formal Dining at night is lovely in this room. Beautiful linens and top-notch table settings including flowers from he garden in season make it glamorous for dinner. Meals in this room are served family-style but at the Relais & Châteaux level. Our staff is trained to serve with the highest possible attention to guest desires. Our Chef will describe the entrees and how they are prepared. You will also hear about the wine pairings, personally selected by Chef to enhance the meal.
Dining at Clyde’s Farm
Some meals are served al fresco at Clyde’s Farm. The Home Ranch kitchen staff moves operations to their outdoor kitchen adjacent to the Greenhouse and gardens. Smoked or barbecued meat, ranch cooking, fresh pizzas, and unique appetizers will make your mouth water.
This dining venue is more casual and you’ll find it a perfect setting after a horseback ride or afternoon of fishing.
Sunset in this dining venue with the western sun right at the edge of the meadow where the horses hang out is pretty spectacular.
The Lodge Deck
Lunch is usually served on the back deck in summer, not too far from the pool in case that’s where you were when the lunch bell rings!
Sheltered and shady with some tables in the sun if you prefer, we find it’s a favorite place to enjoy the lunch buffet. If you like fresh ingredients, you won’t be disappointed. The Farm produce makes lunch really special.
For family vacation weeks, selections with children in mind are available.
Desert is included so eat light if you plan to hike or bike. And good luck deciding how to fit everything that looks good on your plate!
Dinner at the Campfire
The Home Ranch Campfire comes complete with our old sheep wagon (the kids can take a peek), a flagstone area and fire ring surrounded by benches. Dinner is served buffet style at the large picnic tables. Kids can eat and run.
Chef Thomas Lipko might produce canapés or sushi. Then it could be steak and fixin’s, or it might be lobster tails and corn on the cob. After desert, you can have a second desert if you’re partial to S’Mores. Variety is the spice of campfire life. Afterwards, the guitars will come out and you’ll get a song book if you like to sing. Home on the Range with a full stomach, a breathtaking sunset, good company, what could be better?
