The Whitehorse Steakhouse Story
Allan and Renay Watt were always enamored with the cowboy lifestyle. Allan was even fondly named “Wall Street Cowboy” by his friends. Their love of competing in cowboy mounted shooting and preparing flame-cooked meals on their vintage chuckwagon for church gatherings sparked their vision of operating an event venue.
They purchased 50 acres of land in 2013 and with help from their family began work on creating a western style town, restaurant, and event venue full of old-fashioned charm of the old west, mingled with a warm, welcoming atmosphere, and graceful luxury.
In January of 2016, the family suddenly, and tragically lost their mother Renay. She truly loved caring for her animals and the beauty of being in the tranquil woods. Oak Meadow Ranch was Renay’s dream, and it was her persistent joy and perseverance that brought it to life. Renay was endlessly loved by her family, and it was their greatest hope to fully realize her vision.
Together, the family completed work on the ranch and opened for business in January of 2017. Rustic, yet refined, not too big and not too small, surrounded by the peace and serenity of the quiet country, with no detail overlooked – just as Renay envisioned it.
The Renay E. Watt Wellness Center, 501c3 organization, is working to bring Suicide awareness & Prevention to individuals, Families, Veterans, & First Responders.
