Hello everyone. We hope you and your loved ones are staying safe, healthy and positive in these difficult times. We’re looking forward to brighter days ahead when we can welcome you back to the beautiful Idaho Rockies. As of now, our plan is still to open for guests on June 12. We will, of course, take every precaution to keep you safe as you enjoy the remote, tranquil and wide open spaces at the Ranch. This includes following all CDC, federal, state and local guidelines and social distancing protocols, increased cleaning and sanitation efforts, training of all team members, and daily screening.

In the meantime, we thought we’d share one of our favorite brunch recipes from the Ranch kitchen: JG Lemon-Buttermilk pancakes. They pair perfectly with our famous smoothie, good for breakfast, lunch, virtual hangouts or anytime…so we’re including that one too!

We can’t wait to create new memories with you soon here at the Ranch.

Love from the entire IRMR team!
