Fine Dining Fare – Featuring First Rate Chefs
Our hearty Western fare and gourmet dinners are one of the main reasons our guests return year after year. The view from the dining room, where meals are served, is simply spectacular. We can assure you that excellent dining is taken very seriously at The Hideout. Each item is prepared with only the best and freshest ingredients. Most of our vegetables are local, organically grown and fresh from the garden.
The Hideout Chef and Food Culture
The Hideout chef, Sheena Ernst, will be back for her 4th season at The Hideout. Sheena is from this region, but graduated from the Tante Marie Culinary School in London as a Le Cordon Bleu Chef. Sheena has worked in restaurants in London and other overseas destinations in addition to restaurants in Colorado and Wyoming.
Often you will find Sheena’s mom working alongside her daughter in the kitchen. Sheena’s mom looks like her older sister and is a great chef also. Above all Sheena and her mom are very personable and the genuinely care about our guests and the quality and health of the food they put on the table.
To us food goes beyond sourcing and preparation. It includes creating that very special feeling of warmth and hospitality you find when you have a family meal at your mothers or grandmothers place.
Many of our new and yearly returning guests come from around the world and a growing number visit us from countries and areas known for their food culture. Needless to say our chef and her team needs to be creative and have an eye for quality. Our kitchen is less about quantity but rather about quality and healthy food. At The Hideout we eat well every day.
All meals are included in your guest package.
Each morning we serve homemade dishes such as eggs prepared any way you want them, pancakes, French toast, etc. In addition we also offer a breakfast selection at the buffet.
For all-day rides, hearty sandwiches are freshly prepared in the morning to ensure The Hideout’s standards for quality. If you choose to participate in a half-day activity, a scrumptious lunch is served in the dining room of the Main Lodge. In the evening, we serve our guests western-style gourmet food, elegantly presented, with wine, beer or the beverage of your choice.
Once a week (weather permitting) there is an outdoor cook-out where we serve juicy, marbled Certified Angus Beef along with a variety of other tantalizing food. Our chef is very creative and does not limit herself to serving meat only. We cater to most diets within reason.
The fresh high-country air and invigorating outdoor activities will stimulate your appetite, and at the Hideout, your taste buds will always be richly rewarded.
The Hideout Lodge & Guest Ranch is your destination if you are looking for the unique combination of a real working cattle ranch, great riding, and world-class hospitality in remote country out West.
