Last Sunday  was so much fun! We put on a Bridal Show at the resort for all the brides that are having their wedding here and brides looking for a venue to have their wedding. The turnout was great for vendors and brides!

We had our registration table for brides to enter a drawing of a complimentary one night stay and breakfast for two! Then we drew the winner on monday morning ! We also had two photographers set up tables, a cake vendor, a wedding planner/baker, and two dj companies.

We are planning to do another bridal show in March, and can’t wait to see all the summer brides !

It’s very cold at the lodge today.  It’s one of those days where you just want to cuddle up with a warm blanket and stay indoors with a good book.  The sky is as gray as can be, and just looking at the water and the mist on the lake sends a chill down my back.  On a day like today it’s nice to get to sit in front of a warm, inviting fireplace sipping a cup of coffee.  It’s relaxing this time of year.

As I write this, my co-workers are hustling and bustling about to prepare the hotel for the holidays.  It’s amazing to see how they transform the hotel into a winter wonderland.  We have several decorated Christmas trees throughout the hotel and wreaths galore.  Giant star ornaments line the hallway from the entrance all the way to the cafe.  We are preparing for the many Christmas parties we have booked as well as the huge New Years Eve bash we are hosting with the John Arnold Band providing the entertainment.

It’s a busy atmosphere but the soft Christmas music playing in the background makes for a pleasant and soothing environment as I drink my coffee by the fire in the lounge.

What are you doing for New Years Eve? Want something to do that is fun, delicious, and safe that you can enjoy with friends? Quartz Mountain Resort has the answer. We invite you to spend New Year’s Eve with us! We have a night of fun planned just for you .

The band plays a wide variety of music including Country, Swing, Jazz, Bluegrass, and more.

Our Pre-Party Reception begins at 7PM with a hot and cold hors d’oeuvres buffet of assorted canapes, puff pastries stuffed with chicken salad, chicken brochettes, duck confit, and ahi tuna on crostini. A fruit tray, vegetable crudites, and an international and domestic cheese display with fruit and crackers are also on the buffet. Dinner will be served between 8PM and 9PM and the chef has made up a mouth-watering menu that will delight any pallet.A caesar salad station that includes: romaine lettuce, seasoned croutons, cherry tomatoes, parmesan cheese, black olives, and caesar dressing along with assorted compound salads.

Main dishes include: bourbon chicken served with our homemade bourbon barbecue sauce, pork shank osso boco served with zesty basil-caper sauce, cajun spice catfish and pan fried tilapia marinated in our very own tequila lime sauce.

To round out the meal, side dishes of herb roasted bliss potatoes, wild mushroom risotto, sauteed vegetable medley, and garlic mashed potatoes.

No meal is complete without a variety of desserts. The chef has selected an assortment of desserts and pies.

There is nothing more satisfying than being able to sink into the cushions of a deep sofa at the end of a long workday. We know this, and we feel the same way, and so we decided to renovate and refurbish our lounge to make for an even more relaxing escape. Stop in and recline in one of our soft leather couches by the toasty fireplace while sipping a glass of Pinot Grigio on a chilly Oklahoma winters’ eve. The soft firelight and homey atmosphere will help you relax while enjoying the sunset over the mountains.


Warm up with a bowl of hearty minestrone soup (a personal favorite) and the Resort’s famous Foot-Long BLT on our new Fall/Winter Cocktail Menu. Top it off with our mouthwatering crème brulee cheesecake to soothe your sweet tooth. Or perhaps an evening of celebrations is in your plans. A toast in front of the crackling fireplace with a bottle of our Piper-Heidsieck Brut Champagne from France would commemorate the event perfectly.
