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 took a lunchtime sleigh on a perfect day. Came back happy, satisfied, and full of family fotos. ¡Haganlo! No olviden que es invierno y a pesar de sus colchas... More

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.

Incredible food, worthy of a michelin star in my opinion. Very reasonably priced for the food. Food was just amazing, service was excellent, great atmosphere. I'm will be back very soon. Not to be missed if in Sun Valley!

People arrive at Trail Creek Cabin in Ketchum by horse-drawn sleigh but we chose the drive up option. This 1930's hunting cabin has been lovingly restored and is provides the perfect winter setting for a fantastic meal. The new chef's offerings were varied enough for our party with diverse food ideals and we were not disappointed. I chose the featured... More

This quaint and well-appointed historic log cabin is nestled in the trees 1.4 miles from Sun Valley Lodge. It was warm and inviting and felt like we were approaching someone's home as we walked through the cleared paths that meandered through 3 feet of snow. We were met with coat check, which is convenient when donning winter wear. A live... More

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.
