Western Ridge Restaurant and Resort – mountain getaway close to home

It’s time to plan the family’s summer outings! Whether it’s a week-long vacation or a day in the mountains, Western Ridge Restaurant and Resort is a great destination. Located on Red Feather Lakes Road, just 40 miles from Fort Collins and next to Roosevelt National Forest, Western Ridge offers the perfect Western experience, from trail rides to camping.

The Western Ridge Restaurant is open year-round to the public – a great place to stop after a day of hiking or fishing. It’s a full-service restaurant offering breakfast, lunch and dinner along with patrons’ favorite beers and cocktails.

There are endless fun things to do at the resort, often called “the best-kept secret in the mountains.” Trail rides and dinner rides take guests into the mountains from one hour to a full day. People can bring their own horses as well. Camping options include cabins, tent spots and RV hookups. The family can swim in the outdoor pool, fish nearby or just hang out on the deck. There’s live music, too — call for the summer schedule.

This is Western Ridge’s eighth season, and owner Cheryl Franz and crew are ready to welcome local residents and out-of-staters to their relaxing mountain retreat. For more information, call 970-482-4401, email WesternRidgeResort@gmail.com or go to coloradovacation.com/camp/hollow.
