Montana-Style Dining In Our Historic Lodge

Horizontal Rule

Meals at the Lodge reflect a mix of fine western dining and satisfying home cooking. The rustic Lodge and roaring fireplace enhance the Montana inspired cuisine highlighted by the fine cuts of meat, fresh local produce, and hearty Western flare.

From bison tenderloin, to fresh caught lake trout, homemade huckleberry pancakes, and our famous ‘un-done’ brownies, our Chef and kitchen team will make sure your taste buds leave with the same great memories as your family.

Don’t forget about happy hour! Each night enjoy drinks and appetizers on the deck of the Saddle Sore Saloon overlooking the lake while sharing stories of the days adventures.

For the younger ones, a special kid friendly dinner is served nightly. Our executive chef will happily accommodate special dietary needs. Please visit our chef upon arrival.

Our Famous Cookouts and Campfires

It wouldn’t be an Averill’s dude ranch vacation if we didn’t take you and your family out, via horse or vintage fire engine, to eat breakfast, lunch or dinner around a blazing campfire in the wooded foothills surrounding our ranch. Here are the highlights:

Breakfast Ride – A Family-Oriented, Early-Morning Ride With a Hot Breakfast 

Imagine a leisurely, early morning horseback ride up a forested ridge to the smell of woodsmoke, bacon and coffee the woods.  That’s the character of our beloved breakfast ride.

Lunch Ride – A Longer, 2-3 Hour Ride With Lunch for Intermediate and Advanced Riders

If you’d like to take a longer ride we offer a great lunch ride up to a rustic hillside cabin that provides gorgeous views of Swan Lake.

Mountain Steak Fry – A Family Tradition on Wednesday Nights

Every Wednesday night, we put on our classic Steak Fry in the woods above our ranch with a bonfire and live entertainment. Ride your horse up to the site or take a seat in our vintage fire engine and enjoy a real Montana cookout with campfire, Cowboy songs and cold beer.
