Meal was fantastic. Kids really enjoyed the sleigh ride. The atmosphere was amazing and the service was exceptional. We made the casual request to be seated by the fireplace and bam! we were sitting by the fire. It was a little tough to determine pickup...More

The Pine Creek Cookhouse is definitely a unique destination - accessed in winter by cross county skiing, snowshoeing, or by horse-drawn sleigh. (Cross-country skiing to dinner with a head lamp is a blast!) It’s been a family favorite for many years and does not disappoint....More

The sleigh ride to the restaurant was awe inspiring with views of the Elk Mountains. The atmosphere in the restaurant is warm. The food was delicious, and the service was impeccable.

Usually I go to a restaurant for the food. At Pine Creek Cookhouse, you go for the view. In the winter, it is 1.5 miles up the road, which is snow covered and easy to walk or ski (or you can take the horse-drawn carriage)....More

The highlight of this trip was the transportation. The service was horrible and they add 18% gratuity automatically. Food was just average. They did have some nice vegetarian options on the menu.

Call the restaurant. Like many places in Aspen, they are seasonal. A lot of places close mid to end of October until December.
