We were driving through Leadville and I had a conference call so we had to stop. Oh my I will be back. This I one of the best restaurants I have visited. Great beer selection. And a wonderful menu. I had the eggplant sandwich .. It was perfect and I am picky when it comes to eggplant! Side choices of... More

This was a really fun to enjoy a meal....a mile+walk up the snowshoe trail, decent elevation gain to ~ 10k', to the dining yurt....with an outstanding view of the surrounding 14'ers and other peaks. Peaceful and beautiful! Especially liked the antique stove in the yurt, still in use. Dinner was very good, service great- a really nice, thoughtful crew. After... More

As one of the most relaxing and get away locations to enjoy with your family and friends this is by far the trip of a lifetime. If you feel you want the most out of the your trip book the sleep yurts that are new to the Tennessee Pass Cookhouse and 20KM of Nordic track experience. Nestled in the trees... More

At the end of a 1 mile trek there lies one of the most unique restaurants you will ever experience. The incredible mountain view setting for this rustic/canvass walled restaurant is almost beyond description. The interior of the restaurant is warm and cozy. The Alaskan Salmon Tacos, Bison Burger and Grilled Chicken entrees were well received by our group. The... More

The view and the food were awesome yesterday. Bright sunshine, cool but not cold weather! The yurt was warm and cozy. The hike was a bit difficult at altitude but worth it. The food could be pricey depending on what you ordered but the price is worth the experience!

A friend convinced hubby & I to join them for this experience & we jumped on it! Guests meet at the Nordic Center, where you choose to either snow shoe or cross country ski the @1 mile to the yurt where dinner is served. The hike is at 10,000 feet, so not something to do on your first day at... More

The setting, the service, and the food simply cannot be beat. Not cheap...but you get what you pay for, At best I can only afford to eat here maybe once a year...on special occasions...and it's worth the wait, as well as every penny. One of the best meals I've ever eaten...I can't wait to return.

It is a tradition. Every winter we trek to Leadville, ski in the cold evening air, enter a toasty yurt, full of the scents of a great meal and a wood burning stove. Enjoy a nice hot cider, a glass of wine, delicious 4 course meal. Bundled back up we head to the base and the drive home. The food,... More

The whole sleep yurt and cookhouse provide a magical experience. We went in January with two other couples to snowshoe on the full moon, dinner at the Cookhouse Yurt and spend the night in a yurt. Honestly, chef John prepared one of the best meals we have ever eaten and we have eaten at many fine dining restaurants around the... More

Ty and Roxanne have created such an incredible dining/viewing mountain experience. The artwork in the food and the yurt, the trails and the guides, are inspiring. The walk or ski in to the cookhouse is magical, and not too long... but they have snow sleds just in case. Decadent, elegant food... everything tastes better at the cookhouse, always. If you... More
