True to the Three Forks experience, dining at the Lodge and Spa is fully personalized. Each meal selection is yours to customize — from your morning coffee and tea service to your end-of-day dessert. Your guest room comes fully stocked with snacks and drinks to satisfy mid-day (or midnight!) cravings, and all meals, house wines and liquors are always included.
Our beautifully appointed dining room and vast outdoor terrace are home to most of your meals. When you’re out fishing, a full lunch is served riverside on white tablecloths for an easy, delightful, and delicious break in your day. If you’re in search of private dining, our Wine Room is also available for a more intimate experience.
No matter what you choose to order or where you decide to dine, a place at the Three Forks table awaits.
Morning Coffee and Tea Service: Schedule an early-morning delivery of tea or coffee and a fresh pastry to arrive as you wake.

The Middle Fork Lounge
The Middle Fork Lounge is a favorite meeting place to regroup at the end of a thrilling day on the ranch. It’s the quintessential Three Forks setting — warm, inviting, and luxurious — to sip a cocktail or savor a glass of our private-label wines.
Right away, you’ll find yourself immersed in the 17′ x 7′ oil painting by great Western artist Wayne Cooper mounted behind the bar. Commissioned specifically for this space, the epic mural depicts life in the early 1850s. The Ute Indian village nestled in the river bottom along the Middle Fork reflects how the original inhabitants of this land might have prepared for a raid on neighboring tribes or settlers.
The Wine: It all started with an extra six tons of grapes that a winery could not accept and process. Tobin (Toby) James, a lowly assistant winemaker at the time, asked the owner of the winery if he could have the grapes and make wine out of them for himself. The owner replied, “Sure kid, knock yourself out.” A year and a half later, gold medals began pouring in for Toby’s first Zinfandel, the 1985 “Blue Moon” Zin.
After making his wines at another local winery for a few years, and tasting and selling them out of a local wine shop in town, Toby finally took the plunge and built Tobin James Cellars in 1993.
Located in Paso Robles, Calif., award winning wines are poured from behind a grand, antique 1860’s Brunswick mahogany bar from Blue Eye, Mo. The cellar is also home to a restored stagecoach stop now being used as a charming guesthouse.
At Three Forks Ranch, we are proud to pour our private-label Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc from Tobin James. Cheers!
The Bar: Our bar is stocked with only premium liquors and libations, and our premium wine list represents a selection of fine wines from California, the Pacific Northwest, France, Australia, New Zealand, Italy and Germany.
