Relax by the fire with a good book while the snow flies outside, or gather the family for a lively, deliciously flavorful meal in the Brown Swan, the lodge's restaurant, named after the original resort that stood here. Whether you're starting your day of fun with a chicken and waffle sandwich or savoring the end of the day with wild salmon or short ribs, the Brown Swan is a wonderful spot to unwind and treat yourself.
