Homestead Lodge at Ski Brule
The most unique stop you’ll find skiing is at Ski Brule’s mid mountain Homestead Lodge. Delicious food and family fun! The Homestead Lodge is the 1800’s Oberg Homestead and the original Homestead Act, signed by President McKinley, hangs on the wall. The lodge is decorated with vintage photographs and antiques that were once used to farm the land. The antique pot belly stoves are the only source of heat in the Homestead Lodge and are the perfect place to gather with friends and swap stories after a day on the Ski Brule Mountain.
The Homestead Lodge is open daily 9-4:00 with limited hours during early & late season. Target opening date for Homestead Lodge (snowmaking permitting) is December 9.
“We could not have had a more enjoyable experience. The staff was second to none and the food was delicious at Homestead Lodge. Everyone had an awesome time. We have already make our plants to return next year!” ~ John, Winnetka, IL
Grab A Bite To Eat & Relax On Homestead Deck
The scent of outdoor grilling fills the air during your trip down Homestead and North Forty trails. Enjoy lunch and your favorite brew on the sunny Homestead deck as you watch the slopes and tell stories of your day. Or warm up by one of the antique pot belly stoves (only heat source) with a Supreme Hot Chocolate and giant cookie.
