Once a year the cookhouse is opened off season, for the john Denver friends to attend a meal and entertainment.. The chicken n grout they serve is always great, with fresh veg and delicious cheesy mash... Thanks again guys 😊

We decided to hike here from Ascroft and the hike was the most beautiful of our week. Service was lax and although the food was good, it was stupid expensive as were the drinks. $18 for rum and Coke! The views from the outside patio...More

Set in the spectacularly beautiful mountains outside of Aspen, The Pine Creek Cookhouse is an absolute gem! It is both rustic and grand, not unlike the dining room at The Ahwahnee at Yosemite, and, quite honestly, it's so charming and inviting, I wouldn't really care...More

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