Renovated from a historic log cabin gas station in the early 80s, the Gashouse is its own museum, decorated with trophy hunting mounts and a bar laminated with ski passes from famous locals and Olympians. The classic charm and delicious food at the Gashouse keep visitors coming back year after year. With an inspiring menu of wild game selections, hungry patrons can easily plow through a plate of ribs, or try some wild game of elk tenderloin, buffalo rib eye, grilled quail, or Rocky Mountain trout. For the less adventurous, the Gashouse serves up traditional dishes, salads a large kids menu, and a mouth-watering selection of seafood. The Gashouse is just 10 miles west of Vail and 5 miles west of Beaver Creek.
