The Boot Saloon

You’ve heard the expression, “every picture tells a story.” Well, the owners of the new restaurant at Grand Timber Lodge believe every boot has a story – one of adventure, challenge, or even championship. Such endeavors require hours and hours of perseverance, hence, the name The Stinky Boot.

Located in the space formerly occupied by the Lodgepole Bar and Grill, “the Boot” channels the laid-back ski lodge vibe that was in Colorado in the days of yore. Part of this ambiance is reflected in a growing collection of mountain-related memorabilia, evolving on the walls and shelves that evoke the spirit of the ‘70s, ‘80s and ‘90s.
