Sierra Valley Lodge is happy to welcome local resident Dwight Brooks as our partner and General Manager
of The Lodge effective immediately. Mr. Brooks will also oversee the transformation of the Lodge’s
restaurant into a more locallydriven,
BBQ centric menu.
Dwight Brooks is no stranger to the Sierra Valley where he has been a residence since 1999 after moving
to the area with his wife, Heidi where they raise their two boys. After honing his culinary skills in his
Sierraville cafe for the past several years, Dwight plans to take his growing love of smoking and bbq
ing ribs, turkeys and brisket to a whole new level at Sierra Valley Lodge.
The new hours for the lodge will be Thursday through Sunday from 11am til 11pm. Menu items to include a
la carte BBQ plates, sandwiches and pasta. Look for the restaurant to feature daily specials, lower prices, a
bigger selection available in the bar and on Sundays, the emphasis will be on families with kids under 10
Dwight is also a musician and his love of music will dovetail well with the Lodge’s musical offerings which
include a great Halloween show this Sat as well as a very special New Year ve show with the Dead Winter
The lodge was originally built in 1919 as a recreation hall for the oncethriving
mill town owned by
Lumber Company. Although the town and the hall have changed over the years, the
enjoyment the town and the county have derived from the space made it an important part of the community
as they watched bands, graduations, weddings, and cowboy poetry readings over the year.
There are now rooms available for the lodge which will be open all winter long as well as the bar and the
restaurant. So come on down to Calpine!
