SARATOGA, Wyo.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Magee Homestead, the boutique health and wellness retreat that opened last year as part of the Brush Creek Luxury Ranch Collection, announced today that it will open for the 2017 summer season on May 17. In its second year of operation, Magee Homestead will showcase a new “pasture to plate” culinary program, featuring Ranch-raised Akaushi beef and a greenhouse, as well as new spa experiences providing the ultimate in indulgence and relaxation.
“Last year, we unveiled to great fanfare in the middle of the summer season,” said Jeremy Belnap, Proprietor of Magee Homestead. “In our first full season of operation, Magee Homestead will really come into its own as the ultimate health and wellness retreat with each experience personalized to the individual guest’s desires. We look forward to delighting guests with an elevated culinary philosophy that includes a pasture to plate program, as well as new spa experiences.”
A luxurious prairie hideaway on 7,000 acres of historic Wyoming ranchlands in the high mountain desert of the American West, Magee Homestead affords sophisticated exclusion for adults 21 years and older, where guests can escape from the hectic world outside while reconnecting with one another through a truly personalized experience. Its nine individual cabins, private lodge, outdoor pool and cabanas and full suite of spa and wellness experiences and activities also allows for supremely private intimate weddings, vow renewals, corporate retreats and multi-generational family vacations for up to 27 guests of all ages.
Under the guidance of new Chef de Cuisine AJ Buchanio, Magee Homestead will have an entirely new menu this year featuring a “pasture to plate” program, including Ranch-raised Akaushi beef and an on-Ranch greenhouse. Magee Homestead’s menu will feature the Ranch-raised Akaushi beef, which has a rich, buttery flavor as well as juiciness and tenderness throughout. Highlights include a Akaushi New York Strip Steak with smashed potatoes, grilled mushrooms, caramelized shallot and red wine jus; and Akaushi Beef Tenderloin Tartare with Castelvetrano olives, pickled mustard seed, egg yolk vinaigrette and seeded country bread.
