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.

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 truly wonderful dinner experience. The sleigh ride through the snowy winter wonderland, arrival at a charming log cabin for a cozy and delicious dinner was enjoyed by everyone from age 3-63. Order a hot drink to go from the inn bar to take with you on your way- and there are choices for everyone at dinner. An unforgettable experience.... More

For 18 years, my wife and I have traveled out to Trail Creek via the horse drawn sleigh for our Christmas Eve / Wedding Anniversary dinner. It is always magical and includes a visit by Santa and carolers from Utah. The menu has evolved and is now comparable with some of the better food served at the Lodge but you... More

We celebrated our 25th anniverary in Sun Valley during their first big snow fall around December 14th. A ski patrol friend suggested this place and I am soooo glad he did. I wish the sleigh ride to the cabin was operating but we were too early in the season. The meal was fanominal, you can't beat the romantic atmosphere Hemingway's... More

Had Thanksgiving dinner at the Trail Creek Cabin. It was simply awesome. The cabin, as it is named is a large multi-room log cabin. Spacious with multiple wood fireplaces. We had the 5:00 seating and thoroughly enjoyed our dinner. Service was spot on - professional, comfortable, friendly - from the Hostess to Joe, our Waiter. Dinner wax a fixed menu... More

the setting here is worth the trip to eat. Rustic type of cabin setting. We took the sleigh ride out in winter and have driven out during the summer. Lovely setting. Steaks good. Service was great. Large homemade desserts.

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.
