Fodor's Expert Review Pine Creek Cookhouse
In the winter, the only way to get to this homey log cabin with breathtaking views of the Elk Mountains is via snowshoe, cross-country ski, or horse-drawn sleigh. In the summer, you can drive to the front door, but you should consider hiking here to compensate for the filling American alpine fare you'll enjoy at lunch or dinner: wild game, such as bison and elk, plus smoked trout and river salmon. In the cold-weather months, don't miss the authentic Nepalese Sherpa stew. Wintertime dinners are prix fixe starting at $95, which includes four courses and gear for skiing or snowshoeing.
