I like this place a lot, but its not fancy. The people running it can change from year to year,since they have to bid it, but, this set were very nice. You can stay in cabins or in the lodge. The price is very affordable. If you like camping in the rough this should work. The setting is beautiful and... More

The first time we visited Elkhorn Hot Springs was 25 years ago. We just made our first return trip since then. There have been huge improvements since we were last there. We stayed in the lodge above the restaurant. Our room was clean and the bed was comfortable. The changing room and shower for the hot springs has been recently... More

If you are looking for The Ritz - stay in the city - If you are looking for truly wonderful vintage Montana resort you have found your place! I used to stay here on occasion as a child in the 60's & 70's. I was on a road trip and decided to check the place out again after a few... More

Visited Elkhorn Hot Springs and restaurant for the first time recently. The pools were clean, (old but kept up), variety of temps depending on the pool. The restaurant was exceptional with a chef that was top notch! The salmon special on Saturday evening was amazingly delicious! They get their potatoes from Hamer, Idaho and hand cut the fries, yummmm. The... More

We stayed in the "Modern" Cabin, which meant it had indoor plumbing! It was really fun! They are small and rustic, but near Crystal Park and other great outdoor fun! We really enjoyed the hot springs and the breakfast buffet the next morning! Perfect for our family!

Just stayed for a soak but found the water was to hot to stay longer than 20 minutes. Its a beautiful setting, remote, quiet when the kids aren't screaming and jumping in the pool. Only half the pool was really used as the deep end had black scum on the bottom and no one wanted to use it.

We stopped in to see what Elkhorn Hot Springs was on our way through. The place is terribly run down, there is no indoor plumbing or water in all but one of the cabins, the furniture in them was worn and dirty. The outhouses looked really iffy, like they had not been maintained in many years. The young woman behind... More

Elkhorn hot springs is located on a gorgeous piece of land. The views are stunning and it was a beautiful place to sit and relax. We started at the restaurant. It's a long cabin style place with a huge front porch with a couple outdoor tables and a big bench porch swing. We chose to sit outside and enjoy the... More

Very relaxing after a day digging crystals. I hear it is best in the winter time after a day skiing at Maverick Mountain - hoping to make it back to experience that for myself!
