At Coteau des Prairies Lodge, we LOVE good food! But it’s not just the food, we love the whole experience from the field, to the kitchen to the table. In a real sense, the food experience is at the core of prairie farm life. As farmers, our livelihood depends on the food we raise in our fields and pastures. You may feel that connection as you pass through the farm and ranch land on your way to the lodge. People tell us they develop a deeper appreciation for the food they eat when they see where it comes from. So appropriately, some of our fondest memories involve preparing food with loved ones, and meals too are special times when family and friends gather to give thanks, laugh together and pass the dish around the table.
We have found that people like to eat good food with their family and friends while staying at the lodge. Something about getting away and adjusting to a slower pace of life brings people together in the kitchen or around the table where memories are made. We are all about good food and making memories!
Do you know what makes good food even better? A great atmosphere! From the majestic pine log construction and extraordinary view to the friendly lodge staff and charming rustic decor, your meals at Coteau des Prairies Lodge will be an experience unlike any other! We do not have a restaurant, but we have put a lot of thought into designing a kitchen and dining space which can accommodate the needs of our guests whether you want meals prepared by our chefs, prepared by yourself or even prepared by another caterer of your choice.
WE ARE YOUR CHEF (FOR GROUPS ONLY)
We have in-house chefs who will prepare meals for groups of 12 to 60 upon request. Our chefs require at least two weeks of lead time to prepare for your meal. Ask about pricing details and availability when you make reservations.

YOU ARE YOUR CHEF
Of course, you are welcome to use our kitchen to prepare your own food. Your friends can join you to prepare a feast in our over-sized kitchen or you can be the star of your own cooking show as your friends observe your culinary skills through the large serve-through window. The suite also features a private kitchen and dining space. Preparing meals yourself will require fore-planning because you will need to bring along your own food. A limited grocery selection is available at the Rutland General Store (9 miles away).
CHOOSE ANOTHER CHEF
Ask us for a list of local caterers who will serve food for your group/event or bring your own caterer.
TRY THE LOCAL CUISINE
If you would like to go for a country drive and venture out for some local fare you will find an assortment of options in all directions from the lodge. Ask us for suggestions of local dining establishments. Find a complete list here.
