Thank you Jackson for your hospitality, great cooking and wonderfully interesting conversation! The ghost history was fascinating! I highly recommend this as a MUST place to visit while in the area or passing through!

After a day of snowboarding at Maverick Mountain, the Elkhorn Lodge was a welcome surprise! The staff was so friendly and accommodating. The lodge accommodations were very comfortable and inviting...we felt warmth all over first thing walking in the front door. The hot springs were just what our tired muscles were begging for...and the food was awesome. The dinner presentation... More

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

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.
