Fatherly recommends Wyoming resort for families to unplug and enjoy in summer and winter
Dubois, Wyoming – October 16, 2020 – Brooks Lake Lodge & Spa, the remote, all-inclusive guest ranch tucked into the Wyoming woods near Yellowstone National Park, was recently honored by Fatherly.com as one of 9 Seriously Beautiful, Seriously Remote Family Vacation Spots. Citing the need for families to “get away from it all, unplug and enjoy” while remembering “there is beauty to be found in every corner” of the planet, the top dads’ website recommends picturesque places to weather the wilds in style – including historic Brooks Lake Lodge. Perfect for families with children 7 and up to escape to in both summer and winter, the resort opens for its winter season December 20, 2020, with summer season mid-June through mid-September. Located 25 miles from the nearest tiny town of Dubois, Wyoming, and 60 miles east of Jackson Hole, the lodge rests lakeside at 9,200 feet, surrounded by dramatic mountain landscapes deep in the Shoshone National Forest.
With eight private cabins ranging in size from cozy one-room cottages to large family-size structures that can accommodate up to eight people, each is equipped with a wood-burning stove, as well as a deck for taking in the tremendous views. Every cabin is close walking distance to the main lodge, which houses the Great Hall for family dining as well as the Cowboy Bar with tasty libations for adults. Hosting a maximum of 18 guests at a time for the upcoming winter season, the footprint at the lodge is small, ensuring each guest is always a VIP with a 1:1 staff-to-guest ratio for the ultimate in service.
In the summer, families can find themselves horseback riding along the scenic trails that surround the lodge or fishing for trout in one of the alpine lakes or rivers. The lodge offers a variety of nature-rich, outdoor ranch-style activities that engage kids and parents with the countryside and each other. Other summer activities include kayaking, hiking, archery and astronomy lessons that take advantage of spectacular starry nights.
And in the winter it’s all about snowmobiling on the lodge’s world-famous terrain with 2 million acres for beginners and experts alike to explore and enjoy. With a sweet fleet of new snow machines for the 2020/21 winter season, the lodge features the finest sleds and expert guides to lead a family on a fun, safe and scenic adventure. As Fatherly shares, families vacationing at Brooks Lake Lodge can also enjoy backcountry skiing and ice fishing in some of the Wild West’s truest wilderness.
While all this activity requires fuel, families can rest assured that the meals are hearty, delicious and offer something for everyone. Choosing from an array of gourmet comfort foods taken to the next level, families enjoy breakfast, lunch and dinner served in the grand dining hall with its crackling fire in the massive stacked-stone fireplace. Recently recognized by Big Sky Journal for its legendary cuisine and local farm-to-table partnerships, the lodge offers dining that is nothing less than memorable. And with meals part of the lodge’s all-inclusive pricing, there’s no worry about selecting less expensive menu items – everyone orders exactly what they want and enjoys what’s famously been called “the best meal in the middle of nowhere.”
