“5 STAR” ACCOMODATIONS
501 ranch currently has accommodations for 25 overnight guests, but plans to add cottages around the lake this summer and fall to accommodate triple that number for church and corporate retreats.
The Lodge offers about 14,000 square feet of event space, including a Great Hall with two fireplaces and a bar where about 300 people can be seated. A private dining room can accommodate up to 100 people. The Lodge has two outdoor patios; the stone patio at the back of the building features a fire pit and an outdoor bar overlooking the lake.
An outdoor pavilion can seat up to 800 people, though it typically hosts groups of about 300. The pavilion is popular for corporate picnics, Ede says, and has an outdoor kitchen with two wood-burning fireplaces. The ranch does not offer on-site catering; meals are typically catered into the property.
