Celebrating farm-to-table cuisine is an important part of our luxury ranch. Our own farmstead garden cultivates over 80 varieties of herbs, fruits and vegetables without the use of synthetic fertilizers or chemicals. Other special ingredients.…superb fresh local lamb, beef, poultry, wild game and fish are selected for our signature blend of rustic and sophisticated cuisine, matched with fine wines from our extensive cellar.
The ranch dining experience is not only about delicious, healthy cuisine, but the thrill of discovery.
The quest for the best handcrafted, artisanal foods, wines and spirits is part of our genes. A friendship with the winemaker of one of California’s great Pinot Noirs led us to a spectacular, but obscure wine from Priorat, Spain. An award-winning Chevre comes from the goat farm right down the road. The best wines in Colorado are made thirty minutes away. A few years ago a local orchardman started a distillery. One day he stopped by the ranch carrying two bottles; one gin, one vodka, and proudly poured us a taste of each. Again, we found ourselves discovering something truly special….local spirits that are now found in the best restaurants in Aspen & Denver.
Mealtimes at the ranch, even cocktails, will often find you in some of the most spectacular settings….a streamside picnic below towering Saddle Mountain.... a horseback ride or hike to a mountain vista for hors d’oeuvres and wine….wine tasting on the pavilion deck with the area’s signature Needle Rock rising against the western sunset….and dinner near a cozy fire in the historic Old Elk Lodge. Every meal at our Colorado luxury ranch is a relaxing occasion to embellish your stay in this Rocky Mountain paradise.
