Canyon Kitchen

True to its history and agrarian roots, Lonesome Valley’s Canyon Kitchen offers a humble yet extraordinary connection to food that both sustains and entertains the senses. Massive oak beams define the structure of Jennings Barn and its open-air dining. Broad, rolling meadows and magnificent granite faces set the scene. Guests are invited to stroll through the gardens; enjoy the soft hues of sunset and the dazzling display of fireflies. Nature’s aperitif.
