Aspen’s legendary restaurant, the Pine Creek Cookhouse, is nestled at the base of the Elk Mountains.

Alpine gourmet food featuring wild game and fresh fish is brought to life with organic, locally-sourced ingredients. From field to stream our chefs prepare cuisine made from scratch every day. Join us for lunch or dinner.

Biking, Hiking, and Fishing
The upper Castle Creek Valley offers a mecca of recreational opportunities. Hikers stroll the ghost Town of Ashcroft or take on an invigorating climb up Cathedral trail. Cycling up Castle Creek Road is a local favorite road ride. Beaver ponds offer Gold Medal trout fishing.
