Made sleigh to dinner reservations for kids ages 9-16. Over the phone they said 'no problem'....once we arrived to drop off kids and then drive to meet them there....they refused to let them go with out an adult. Sort of annoying that whoever is 'taking' the reservations does not know the rules(at 149$/12 and older(adult prices mind you!!!). Food was... More

Enjoyed going back to the Trail Creek cabin for a low key dinner with friends and enjoyed the local trout. Food is good but this is more about the atmosphere. The pairings with the main course were just ok but the trout was delicious. Had the beet salad also which was good but needed a few more goodies in it.... More

We took the Sun Valley Lodge van over to the Trail Creek Cabin. Others took the sleigh. The smiles in their faces said they enjoyed the ride. It must be hard for a restaurant when so many diners are seated at the same time. The staff seemed overwhelmed. Service was just OK. Food was just OK. The ambiance of the... More

We had arranged this for our special Christmas Day dinner. The sleigh ride was a great experience, but it was very long and cold. The ambiance is amazing in the cabin, it almost made up for the terrible food and the price for it. My son was served a silver dollar size of meat for his entree. My husband, adult... More

As we arrived to the dusk of the evening, I asked my husband to stop and take in what we were witnessing for a few seconds. The snow had been falling in Sun Valley for weeks and Trail Creek Cabin looked enchanting with the deep snow on the roof line. The beautiful snow was falling as we entered the cabin.... More

Went with a ski club and we had a wonderful time. Beautiful horses and scenery on the ride. Drivers were very nice. Great atmosphere at the cabin (except we missed the accordion player they had on our last visit). Food and service were excellent (try the buffalo tenderloin). Very pricey but a special night.

The sleigh ride was cold but amazing. A definite must do while in Sun Valley. However, the food at Trail Creek Cabin was disappointing at best. The ambiance was nice and that's it. One person in our group had the lamb and said it was very good. The rest of us had steak and it was nearly inedible. The cut... More

Tomabamos una de las "excursiones invernales durante almuerzo en Sun Valley Club." OJO: no fue cena, que es OTRA cosa. Facil, con precio correcto, y abundante sol, comodidiad y fotos.

We had a fabulous experience at Trail Creek Cabin. Spectacular rustic and historic setting. A terrific staff with friendly and professional servers and an excellent manager, Matt. All of them made us feel welcome, attended us deftly, and wished us farewell as we left. The gratin starter is just the right amount and yummy. Soup and brussels sprout salad were... More

Original hunting cabin built by Averill Harriman. You can imagine the parties and meetings that were held here. Horse drawn sleighs. The boar's cheeks and brussel sprouts were divine.

A romantic hideaway since 1937, Trail Creek Cabin is a must Sun Valley dining adventure. Sleighs depart for the restaurant from the village near the Sun Valley Inn during the ski season, and you may also drive. The seasonal menu has a western flare with items including locally raised beef, Idaho Trout, baby back ribs and the Hemingway meat loaf. All complimented by a great wine list and a full bar.
