Brooks Lake Lodge offers gourmet holiday feasts, outdoor adventure, rejuvenating spa

Holidays at Brooks Lake Lodge

Dubois, Wyoming – November 21, 2019 - The greatest holiday gifts don’t come in a box wrapped in red-and-green paper and tied with a bow. And the greatest holiday memories arise not from something material but by experiencing something meaningful – sharing special moments in special places with loved ones. Brooks Lake Lodge & Spa aims to ensure that every guest that walks into their nearly 100-year-old lodge leaves with those lifelong memories, having created a deeper connection to loved ones and nature, especially during the holidays.

Like stepping into a real-life snow globe, there is no need to dream of a white Christmas at Brooks Lake Lodge; a snow-filled holiday is guaranteed as the lodge sits high in the mountains at 9,200 feet, receiving an average of 500 inches of snow each winter. Indoors, a giant Christmas tree stands tall in the lobby next to the cozy welcome of a gigantic stone fireplace – one of three in the main lodge. Guests sip eggnog by the fire in the onsite Cowboy Bar, while kids play Candyland, shuffle ball or foos ball and snowflakes gently fall outside, blanketing the dramatic surrounding mountainscapes. There are no car horns, no sirens, no ringing phones or blaring TV’s – just the crackling of the fire and the soft sounds of holiday music.

Holiday Snowmobiling at Brooks Lake Lodge
A haven for snowmobilers, Brooks Lake Lodge boasts 2 million acres of scenic terrain to explore while the historical Great Hall is the scene for gourmet fireside meals.

Picture a Christmas day snowmobile ride with an expert guide leading the way through snowy forests and up the mountains to peaks with some of the most spectacular views of untouched Wyoming wilderness. Or maybe a little exercise on snowshoes or cross-country skis exploring the scenic wilderness surrounding the remote mountain lodge that sits 5 miles from the nearest road. Kids can enjoy a day of extreme snow tubing, considered a must by Park City Magazine. After a day in the snow, perhaps a long soak in the 11-by-17-foot hot tub overlooking the Pinnacle Buttes and Brooks Lake is in order – or maybe a hot stone massage before a well-earned Christmas feast.

This year Brooks Lake Lodge’s Executive Chef Whitney Hall is offering an incredible holiday dinner menu for guests on December 25 starting with roasted acorn squash soup with a thyme and rosemary crème fraiche and toasted papitas as an appetizer, followed by an entrée choice of herb encrusted pork roast with a grilled apricot and cranberry chutney, steamed blue mussels with a curried sweet potato sauce or caramelized onion tart with a warm roasted corn relish and with sides including roasted garlic melting potatoes and creamed spinach. And for dessert, Chef Whitney will offer a scrumptious eggnog semifreddo with a gooey house-made shortbread.

Brooks Lake Lodge during the holidays
The onsite Rocky Mountain Spa offers massages, facials, a fitness room and giant outdoor hot tub; guests can choose from private cabins or lodge rooms for quiet comfortable accommodations.

Every meal at Brooks Lake Lodge is included for overnight guests and each menu has an incredibly thoughtful and delicious assortment of dishes to choose from. Fuel the day with hearty Western breakfasts, notoriously filling lunches that locals will ride miles in for via snowmobile, skis or fat bike (the only way to reach the lodge and the only meal at the lodge open to the public). Then relax over decadent dinners all served fireside in the large historic dining hall. And with a maximum of 36 guests at a time, there is no waiting, no crowding, every guest is a VIP and the 1:1 staff to guest ratio promises all requests are immediately addressed.

There’s still time to reserve a lodge room or private cabin for the holidays this year, and Brooks Lake Lodge guarantees a memorable experience for guests who will feel right at home while enjoying the benefits of an all-inclusive luxurious, snowy mountain getaway.

Winter season at Brooks Lake Lodge runs from December 21, 2019, through March 15, 2020. Rates start at $465 per person per night and include all meals, activities and guides, plus taxes and service charge. (Spa services are priced separately, and some additional snowmobile fees apply.)
