Celebrate Thanksgiving with us in Southwest Colorado!

thanksgiving turkeyNovember in the San Juans is the perfect time to visit. After all of the rushing about in the Summer and fall months, things have begun to mellow. Some of the restaurants and shops have closed for the season, and winter has begun to show signs of moving in for a few months. It is not yet cold enough for Ice Climbing, but perfect for soaking in the soothing mineral hot springs on a crisp clear evening.

With the holidays looming, this is a perfect time to get away and prepare for the many activities in the weeks to come, and of course, there are some fabulous specials being offered at The Box Canyon Lodge and Hot Springs!

Escape the norm this Thanksgiving! Stay in Ouray, and let us take care of all the details!


Outlaw Restaurant

Let the folks at the Outlaw provide you with Thanksgiving dinner in a fun and exciting atmosphere. The oldest restaurant in Ouray, the Outlaw has a distinct feel to it.

This year, General Manager and Head Chef, Roy Perkins will be hosting a Thanksgiving Buffet, featuring all of the traditional dishes! There will be only two seatings for this event, at 1:00pm and at 4:00 pm, so it is important to make your reservations as soon as possible.

Every year, we get up early on Thanksgiving to start the turkey and prepare for a day full of cooking and football. Wouldn't it be nice to have all the fun with none of the work? Celebrate with that special someone, or bring the whole family. We've got you covered! There won't be any dishes to wash, and the table is already set. If you run out of rolls, not to worry! Someone else is standing by, ready to replenish your plate!

Give us a call, and we will make all of the arrangements for you! All you have to do is enjoy.

Once you have enjoyed a fabulous meal, head on back to the Box Canyon, and enjoy some football, or a movie from our extensive video library. Let us take all the pressure off so that you can enjoy the holiday the way it was meant to be. 

Between the fabulous food and the majestic beauty of the San Juans, this will be a Thanksgiving to remember.
