This lodge is a great find. You can walk to town and all the shops and restaurants, walk to the Nordic Center and trails, and easily walk to the bus stop to Mt. Crested Butte. What could be better?? Well, the rooms are clean, the breakfasts are good, and the lodge itself is lovely. We really enjoyed the common rooms... More

Great place, friendly and home style accommodations and comfortable feel. It is a historic building which is modernized with conveniences without loosing old charm. There is a good breakfast served that gets you ready for a great day of skiing on Mt Crested Butte.

Great place with character. Actually really enjoyed the bar, it was quaint and unique. It was very affordable and great location. The bar tender had great recommendations for skiing. It needs a piano player though.

The location is fantastic, two blocks from Elk Ave and bus stop. The friendly staff was helpful and gave excellent recreation and dining recommendations. I am already looking forward to staying here this summer.

My friend and I checked out three lodges in Crested Butte before settling on the Elk Mountain Lodge. It was the most expensive of our three choices, but not by much. The large and inviting common room flanked by a wood stove and stocked bar won us over. The Lodge has a history of serving miners in the 1930s. Its... More

We enjoyed being able to park the car and walk to the downtown area. The lodge itself is quaint (could use maybe alittle room updating), clean, and quiet. Breakfast was very good. They also have bikes you can use. Small bar that is open for happy hour.

We had the most amazing weekend. The staff were kind and friendly. The lodge felt warm and comfortable. The great table for breakfast was a neat place to gather for tea and meet other travelers. The room was comfortable - and ours had amazing views. Thank you for a wonderful stay!

My husband, daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed our two night stay at the Elk Mountain Lodge! We stayed in a room with a queen and twin bed which worked really well for us. Breakfasts were very nice (fresh fruit, homemade granola with yogurt, french toast, egg casserole, bacon, coffee, tea, etc). The staff (and owner, Mike) were very friendly and... More

A great lodge, wonderful breakfast, and good coffee. We came to see the Fall Colors on Kebler Pass and do some hiking around Three Lakes. The staff was friendly and helpful. We were there a week or so after "Whatever USA" so we saw many remaining blue structures from that party weekend. The area around Crested Butte is very lovely.... More

This is the second time we have stayed at the Elk Mountain Lodge. We bring our photo workshops here as a friendly and convenient base. Mike and the staff are always friendly, always accommodating. It is an historic hotel. The beds are comfortable, and the lodge is very convenient to all restaurants, etc. in CB.
