There are many places I dream of visiting — the Taj Mahal, Stonehenge, the Great Pyramid of Giza, Iceland, and of course the Pioneer Woman's ranch in Oklahoma. The good news is one of those doesn't require a passport, and if I left in my car from my hometown in rural Wisconsin in the morning, I could still make this weekend's tours. That's right — TOURS! Big letters, big-time fun, and a chance to stand where the stars do. And by stars, I of course mean our favorite sassy red-headed chef!
If you feel like a fun road trip, Ladd and I are opening The Lodge for free tours all this week and next week! I haven't had a chance to clean out/organize all the drawers, shelves, and cabinets after the past year of shooting my show, but if I wait for that to happen, we'll never have Lodge tours.😂 Just grab the directions/details at @pwmercantile in Pawhuska the day you'd like to tour! (And you can grab some chicken fried steak while you're at it.😍) Details in profile. Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas!
Ree Drummond announced on her Instagram this week that she's opening up the Lodge for free tours. You can visit the ranch in Oklahoma anytime between December 26 and 30 and between January 2 and 6. The Lodge will be closed for New Year's Eve and Day. You do need a ticket to get a tour, which you can find at The Merc the day of your visit. Tickets are free, and there is no limit to how many people can visit on any given day. Tours are available from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on the above dates. In the information provided about the tours, it's noted that you should leave your pets at home.

Surprise! Drummond Lodge tours begin tomorrow, Wednesday the 20th and go through Saturday the 23rd. The Lodge will open again after Christmas on December 26th-30th and again after the New Year, on January 2nd through 6th! We hope you’ll stop by sometime this holiday season. It’s the most wonderful time of the year, and Osage County is wild and wonderful! P.S. Don’t forget to pick up your directions at The Merc first (tours are free)!
Did you hear that sound? That's the sound of the collective food universe packing their bags and hopping in the car or boarding a plane to head to Oklahoma. Surely it has to be a better option than the super-chilly and snowy regions across the country. The idea of stopping in for some chicken fried steak at the Pioneer Woman Mercantile, seeing the space, and taking selfie after selfie is just too alluring.
