Your Chef

  • Executive Chef Jonathon Gillespie

    Born and raised in Burlington, Vermont, Jonathon acquired his first job as a dishwasher at 15. He has not had a job outside of a kitchen since.  After cooking his way through business school in North Carolina, it was clear that had found his true calling, no suits and ties for this guy. The logical path was attending the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, NY.  Upon graduating in 1994, he returned to North Carolina to run the hot line at the local Hilton.

    Then in 1997, Jonathon was looking through the Culinary Institute of American job listings and found the listing:  “From Coors to fine Cabernets, Mobil 4 Star guest ranch is seeking Sous Chef….”  The job was for our neighboring Vista Verde Guest Ranch, a dude ranch here in Clark, and after meeting with the owner he was hired as the Executive Chef. 

    Now, seven years after leaving Steamboat he has returned, this time with a wife and two young sons richer, to lead the kitchen here at The Home Ranch.

The Home Ranch was founded in 1978 by Ann and Steve Stranahan, and Ken and Sharon Jones. The families decided to join forces and start their own ranch, wanting to offer other families the unique experience of a high quality Western ranch vacation.

In early 1978, they found an old homestead for sale just north of Steamboat Springs, in a little settlement named Clark. This ranch had everything they had dreamed of for their new venture: 580 acres in the breathtaking Elk River Valley, one of the last Alpine ranching valleys in the American West.

In this wonderful location, they began to build The Home Ranch, modeling the lodge and cabins after the old homesteads still found in the valley. The first guests came for Christmas in 1979. More cabins and lodge rooms were added over the years, and the original 570 acres has grown to 4000 acres available to The Home Ranch guests.

Since its inception, The Home Ranch has been distinguished by the beauty of its setting, its singular charm and style, its gifted and hospitable staff and some amazing food. The quality of the guest experience, it's memorable and challenging activities in both winter and summer, is now legendary. Since 1986, their affiliation with Relais & Chateaux has extended its reach and reputation.

The Home Ranch is now welcoming its second generation of guests, young men and women who want their families to experience the charming traditions, camaraderie and accomplishments that they first experienced as children at The Home Ranch, and still cherish today.

  • "What makes The Home Ranch so special is the enthusiastic and caring way each of our staff members provides over the top service for our guest."

    Brooks is proud to bring his hospitality experiences to The Home Ranch, and make his home in Clark. "I got here as fast as I could!"

    Brooks describes his career as an adventure in independent luxury hospitality: opening, nurturing and repositioning very special properties while demonstrating a commitment to guest service and results.  A book purchased while he was in college would lead him to the venerable Red Lion Inn in Stockbridge, Massachusetts. There he accepted his first job as a dining room host and entered the world of hospitality.

    Promoted to positions of increasing responsibility across all departments, Brooks was named by Jane Fitzpatrick as general manager of the Inn in 1993. In this role, he participated fully in the Berkshire’s wealth of tourism, arts and cultural venues. Brooks served on the opening team of Blantyre in Lenox, Massachusetts and went on to lead his team to strategically develop additional lodging, restaurant and retail businesses. He opened The Porches Inn at MASS MoCA in North Adams, Massachusetts in 2001.

    Brooks has served as general manager of two private clubs including Riverbend, a private luxury club located within the five star, five diamond Destination Kohler in Kohler, Wisconsin.

    In 2011, Brooks completed a three year project to open the Lodge and Spa at Primland in southern Virginia for the late Didier Primat of Geneva, Switzerland. Primland opened in 2009 has been named to the Condé Nast Traveler Top 100 Hotels & Resorts list worldwide. 

    Before coming to The Home Ranch, Brooks completed an assignment to reposition a hideaway guest ranch in the Chiricahua Mountains of southern Arizona. Brooks and his wife Susan collaborated to lead Sunglow Ranch to achieve a number of awards including two Travelers’ Choice Awards.

    Brooks is a member of the Cornell Hotel Society and has served on the boards of Historic Hotels of America and Select Registry, in addition to voluntary service on statewide industry, marketing and arts boards.

So they compromised. Comp has its share of inquisitive wildlife. Don’t be surprised if a deer stops by to visit when you are in the ho
