Homestead Lodge & Dinner 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 typically 9-4:00 Thursday through Sunday, 12/26-1/2, 1/17, 2/21, 3/21-4/2 with limited hours during early, late season and inclement weather. Target opening date for Homestead Lodge (snowmaking permitting) is December 11.
“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 made our plans to return next year!” ~ John, Winnetka, IL
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.
Homestead BBQ Dinner:
Imagine taking a sleigh ride under the stars to the mid-mountain Homestead Lodge where we welcome you with a warm smile and hello. Relax by the potbelly stoves listening to live music while watching the children tubing before feasting on Ski Brule’s Homestead BBQ dinner. On Saturday nights and 12/26, 12/28, 12/30 3/24 & 3/31 the Homestead Lodge serves an “all you care to eat” barbecue dinner of Ski Brule’s famous pulled pork, barbecue chicken, mashed potatoes, gravy, baked beans, sauerkraut, salad, dessert, rolls and beverage (menu subject to change). It’s a ‘must do’ after a day on the slopes.
The FREE sleigh ride to the Homestead BBQ dinner departs routinely from the bottom of the Homestead Trail 5-8:00. Parking is available but it’s highly recommended to take the FREE Brule Shuttle Bus from the Brule Lodge or your chalet to the sleigh ride.
