This was the best experience I have had in a long time. I will definitely be visiting again in the future. I brought my family to end our weeklong ski vacation and was so impressed by the ranch, the staff, the live music, the food, etc. I would highly recommend this to anyone. Beautiful pictures and memories to last a lifetime. Thank you

About the restaurant
Cap a thrilling day on the mountain with an intimate ending at Timber Room with a loved one or small group of friends. Toast to the moment with expertly crafted whiskey-forward cocktails and our extensive champagne selection around a warming fireplace or the commanding bar. When it’s time to dine, elevated small plates meant for sharing have a touch of Old World flair, whether it’s Devilish Eggs with shaved black truffle or a Timber Room baked potato topped with crème fraîche and Russian osetra caviar. Sophisticated, yet always approachable modern mountain dishes range from line-caught wild salmon with lemon caper butter to Rocky Mountain elk loin with local huckleberry jus.

We had a wonderful dinner here! Food was great, ambiance nice, and our server Peyton was very hospitable. It’s a perfect option when you’re exhausted after skiing and don’t want to venture out into the village.
