Dining options: Dinner, Reservations
Description: One special menu is presented each night by Chef Brian Widmer. The fixed price meal includes homemade bread, soup, salad, the featured entree, dessert and coffee. (Dietary restrictions are happily accommodated with advance notice.) With limited seating guests often share a table. Over the years our guests have often told us of friendships forged while enjoying a delicious dinner; for many it is part of the unique experience that is "Garland's Lodge." (Tables for two can be requested, but cannot always be guaranteed.) Cocktails are served by the fire or out on the lawn while the season permits, beginning at 6 P.M. All are seated when the dinner bell rings at 7 P.M.

I heard that the lodge had been sold, but don't know the time frame. I'd been wanting to go on a night when beef filet was the feature, and I wasn't disappointed. There was a southwestern theme to the dinner--red chile bread, tortilla soup, salad with cilantro lime dressing, ancho cream sauce on the filet and tres leches cake for... More

The magic begins as you drive across the creek to enter the property.... The bell for dinner rings at 7pm, arrive early for a beverage on the lawn or inside the lodge. The gracious setting of the dining room so beautiful, the staff so welcoming - you will like you have come home. The food is truly above and beyond... More

We were the first guests back in after the Slide Rock fire, which started a very short distance from the property. We worried for naught about smoke, smells, etc. It was as wonderful as ever and we found tiny green shoots already sprouting up in the charcoal rich burn area. Gary Garland was the hero, with the property ready and... More

The Prix Fixe dinner featuring roast chicken and fresh produce from their gardens was terrific, even if the portions were too much for us! BTW, we were there the 1st day they reopened after the Slide Fire and the Lodge, cabins and grounds are just as beautiful as ever.

Lovely setting. Went with another couple. They serve one meal per evening but do cater to diet restrictions. Each meal comes with a soup, then salad, entree, and a dessert. It was rack of lamb that evening. Everything was nicely prepared. Nice selection of wine and cocktails. A memorable institution.

once you have been to Garland's you will return. It is like a secret club, everyone waves and talks to everyone else. A breathtaking spot, a little heaven on earth. And the food is wonderful, much of it fresh picked and coming right from the garden to the table.

We loved the breakfast pastry selection including scones. They have great coffee, a beautiful outdoor garden in which to enjoy the food and a good variety of fun local foods and t-shirts, etc to take home as gifts. The staff needs a plug because of their helpfulness and genuine interest in their patrons.

Expensive cafeteria food served in a chuck wagon environment. Seems to work if you encourage people to drink one hour before they ring the dinner bell. At that point, customers don't even know how bad the food is that they are eating. Very disappointing! Definitely not work the drive to get there.

Tough to get a reservation here if you just want dinner, but better still, stay a while in one of the cabins and enjoy the sumptuous breakfasts and 3 hour dinners prepared by the cook who wrote the book and, if you're lucky, be serenaded by a violinist who doubles as your waiter.
