Sleeping Indian Ranch, a private estate set on 15,000 acres and located 47 miles northwest of Telluride and 6 miles southeast of Ridgway, is now available for groups and can be booked through Telluride’s Madeline Hotel & Residences, Auberge Resorts Collection. The 40,000-squarefoot, seven-bedroom lodge sleeps 16 guests, was built in 1993 as a private family vacation estate, and is the largest post-andbeam log structure ever constructed that reflects the arts and crafts movement.

Inspired by the great lodges of Yellowstone and Yosemite, the home features reclaimed logs from the 1988 Yellowstone fire, some of which are up to 50 inches in diameter. Highlights are a dining hall that can seat up to 25 guests at a long table or outside on the terrace, media room, cigar room and three-room wine cellar that has the capacity to hold 3,000 bottles and intimate dinners for six to eight. Also located on the estate is the one-bedroom Elk Cabin. During warmer months, larger groups can book the Branding Barn for events, which has capacity for 200 people. Among the amenities are 24-hour butler service, meals prepared by the Madeline’s staff and access to vast wilderness and numerous activities.

The time is right; the stage is set. Groups are ready to meet face to face again, and the four-star luxury hotel MGM Grand Detroit is ready to welcome you back.

According to MPI’s report “Spring 2021 Meetings Outlook,” three-quarters of meeting professionals predict a face-to-face event this calendar year. And that definitely rings true for Lisa Williams, executive director of sales for the hotel.

 

Despite an overall crushing year for the hospitality industry in Pennsylvania, some seeds of hope have been planted and are finally sprouting in the form of new hotel openings. These new properties on the horizon have ample meeting and event space up for grabs, all within close proximity of each other.

Making the most of Minnesota’s ideal (and ever-fleeting) outdoor event season is a time-honored tradition, but outdoor venues hold a whole new appeal in a post-pandemic landscape. 
Plein air events can offer planners plenty of space to safely distance their guests as well as peace of mind to attendees still wary of in-person gatherings—as well as some much-needed screen-free interaction.
