The Day Lodge at Cakebread Ranch

The Day Lodge restaurant offers fresh, farm-to-table dining for guests of the Cakebread Ranch. Settled quietly in Thayne, WY, the Cakebread Ranch is known for its incredible fly fishing and hospitality. Built on the banks of the Salt River, the Day Lodge gives visitors the opportunity to enjoy some good, old fashioned home cooking. The Lodge also provides easy access for guests to changing rooms and the gift shop. An additional private dining area is located on the second floor, where guests may enjoy open views of the Caribou and Salt River Mountain ranges.

To match the surrounding countryside, crews constructed the Day Lodge using reclaimed board form attached to the concrete foundation, copper for the roof and flashing materials, and a reverse board-and-batten cedar siding on the exterior to tie it all together.

Quite the Catch

The Day Lodge has all the amenities one might need after a solid day of fly fishing out on the Salt River. At the fly fisherman entrance, a boot wash with granite slab benches and river rock wash out area next to the restroom and locker area gives guests a chance to freshen up before sitting down for dinner. A custom stainless-steel commercial kitchen complete with wood fired pizza oven is ready to provide a memorable dining experience for all. The Day Lodge’s mechanical system uses both forced air and hydronic floor heating to keep everyone comfortable year-round.
