The cold and snow has a steady hold on the valley these days, welcoming us not quite into winter yet, but definitely a sort of Wyoming “fifth season.” At least, that’s what Spring Creek Ranch is calling it during their Fifth Season Special. Before you bundle up and prepare your home for hibernation, consider getting cozy at a Spring Creek Ranch stay-cation.
The price for this package starts at $205 per night for a double occupancy room (*resort fee, alcohol, gratuity and taxes not included). The deluxe hotel rooms feature a single king or two queen size beds, an in-room log fireplace and outdoor deck–most of which include sweeping views of the snowy Teton Range. This bird’s-eye view of the changing fall foliage is unparalleled, not to mention the ambiance provided by the wild sounds of bugling elk and howling coyotes.
Dinner for two–what does that mean? On a superior menu of starters, salads and entrees, I’d be skeptical too. But don’t be. Your package includes a shared starter, two salads and two entrees…any entrees. Warm up after the brisk walk from the car with the potato leek soup or maple-bourbon glazed kabocha squash. The salads are rich with fall flavors as well: incorporating apples and beets, or elevating a classic Caesar with smoked trout. For the main event, it’s equally difficult to decide. Perhaps, start by picking your protein. From scallops to Bison short ribs and roasted duck breast to Rocky Mountain elk loin, there are oh so many entrees and far too little time. All I can promise you is that there is no wrong choice! Each plate is wholly unique, and guarantees an unforgettable experience.
Drinks are not included in your package, but you’re getting such a deal, we encourage you to splurge–whether it’s on your favorites or a walk on the wild side. The folks behind the bar at The Granary know more than a thing or two about the cocktail game. As tempted as you might be to pair your red meat with reliable red wine, you might regret missing a stunning cocktail creation of gin and sage, or ending the meal with quite possibly the best espresso martini you’ve never had. Go ahead, step outside the box on this one.
This package is available Thursday-Saturday through December 21. Book early enough, and you might just be swayed to treat yourself to multiple stays. As an added bonus: Friday nights are Jazz nights in the Granary and Saturdays you’ll be treated to the sweet sounds of the Piano Bar.
