Breakfast: Coffee, milk & juice with dutch oven biscuits and sausage gravy, sausage and eggs along with pancakes, syrup and fruit you will stay full until lunchtime.
Evening activities may catch you around the campfire, playing cards in the saloon, enjoying the piano and maybe singing along, or simply enjoying the star-filled Montana night sky. But don't feel badly if you want to rest up for the next day's activities with turning in early and getting a great night's sleep in your one-of-a-kind residence!
If you are out on an off-ranch activity, lunch will be provided via lunch pail prepared that morning or offered with a voucher at the golf course or ski area. Ranch lunch is served at 12:00 pm for guests on the ranch.
Snacks throughout the day are available in the dining hall for guests that are working up an appetite. No hunger pains will be experienced here at Pinon Springs.
Afternoon activities will fill the time before supper bell is rung. This may include an afternoon ride for those that passed on the morning ride, or an afternoon tee time, walking tour, hiking, or maybe even a massage by our licensed massage therapist. How are you at throwing horseshoes? We have pits waiting for a challenge. Also offered are many outdoor games or maybe just a challenging game of checkers outside the Merchantile while watching the hens chase some yummy bugs.
Lunchtime: Fresh lemonade and tea served with a garden salad, cut vegetables, homemade soup with a built-the-way-you-want sandwich on a variety of breads.
