Ranch Dining at its Best
Healthy & Homemade
Red Horse Mountain Ranch is usually known for its famous Kids Program and our amazing menu of guided adventures, however over the past few years the dining has taken a gold medal. In the spirit of a great Rocky Mountain ranch, Grandma’s recipes are alive and well, but we’ve added a little flair to bring out the flavors and the freshness of the West. At Red Horse Mountain Ranch the kitchen is no exception to the principles we operate with; always fresh, plenty of options, and absolutely make everyone feel at home. Vegan, gluten-free, or any other food requirement, will find it difficult to shed a few pounds on this ranch vacation.
The chefs will delight you with daily fresh breads, seemingly endless buffets, salad bars, a special dinner paired with regional wines, and outdoor western ranch cooking. All of your entrees, appetizers, salads are made fresh daily. Lunches and dinners always include salads and seasonal, regional produce whenever possible.
In the morning, the chefs usually have a hot pot of coffee brewing around 6:00 a.m. for the early risers. You’ll always find fresh fruits, muffins, cookies, cereals, fountain drinks, and juices available in the lodge throughout the day and evening. The snack bar is well-stocked with granola bars, trail mix, yogurt, and bagels for anyone looking for a quick bite. We can promise that during your stay there is plenty to go around.
Lunches are served buffet-style and are light meals for most; fresh salads, carved meat and fresh-baked breads for sandwiches are the usual. For those late risers with an appetite, there’s always a main dish or two from the chefs just for good measure. And don’t worry; if you’re signed-up for an all-day adventure, you are able to pack a lunch to go that will go with you on the fun in the sun.
Dinners are not where we end our day, but get ready for the next day’s adventures. Usually, dinners are served buffet-style, allowing you to choose your own portions for yourself and your children. Meals vary throughout the week, featuring BBQ, roasted chicken, fresh cut fish, and grilled meats, particularly our own grown beef.
One night each week, the chefs will prepare a special Wine Dinner for our adult guests, highlighting regional wines chosen specifically for the meal. Meanwhile, your children will be well provided for with a balanced kid-friendly meal, including fresh fruit and vegetables (but leave room for s’mores around the campfire!)
A wealth of snacks are always available in the lodge, including such things as fresh baked goods, cereals, fresh fruit, yogurts, string cheese, juice, milk, cookies, and trail mix. Guests are more than welcome to help themselves at anytime.
