Loved the history behind this property! The service was great, breakfast delicious, and conversations around the breakfast table were fun. Our bedroom was nice - albeit a bit small, but no problems. The bathroom was very nice and we appreciated our room location. The lodge also had parking spots available which was a huge asset in this snow-filled town! We... More

Located just two blocks off the main drag in Crested Butte, you can't find a better location. The rooms were quaint - and clean. They have everything you need - including a hot tub and Adirondack chairs to take in the views and mountain air. The co-owners are super friendly and knowledgeable, and the breakfast was AMAZING.

Great accommodations, friendly staff, adequate breakfast. This is an older Bed and Breakfast but it has all the amenities you'll need for a cozy stay. Hotel manager, Tracy, went out of her way to help my elderly mom and i appreciate that extra special touch!

Highly recommended - our room was super clean, quiet, and very comfortable (loved the bed). The breakfast is quite extensive and very good. The owner and staff provide wonderful service and personal advice about where to hike, bike and eat dinner. My hubby loved the tiny bar in the evening and being able to get a Colorado micro-brew IPA.

Elk Mountain Lodge, Crested Butte, CO We are almost at 8,900 feet above sea level in the Rockies. And I felt it taking our luggage to our room on the second floor! Nice B&B, located a few blocks from downtown and its many restaurants. Nice breakfast the next morning

This hotel was recommended as a place to stay for a wedding. It is located right off the main street in town. It is a very easy walk to all restaurants and shops. The room was very clean and inviting. For an old building the bathroom was perfect. The bed was comfortable. Although the room was small we had plenty... More

The Elk Mountain Lodge is an incredible to stay if you are looking for authentic Crested Butte experience, for the building has been so lovingly restored and maintained. The location is terrific! I could walk into town, just 2 blocks away, whenever I wished or take one of the hiking trails just out of town without ever stepping into my... More

What an awesome stay! Lori, our innkeeper couldn't have been more inviting! We liked the history and local flavor. The fresh breakfast was a bonus. Lori provided many insights to what made the town interesting. The room was large and furnished well. Best said, if we return to Crested Butte, we will stay at Elk Mountain Lodge.

My boyfriend and I had an amazing stay at the Elks Mountain Lodge in Crested Butte, CO this past week. The rooms were clean and comfortable with a great view of the 7 ft of fresh snow right outside our window! Each morning we had a complimentary breakfast of coffee, tea, OJ, fresh fruit, assortment of breads, yogurt and granola.... More

in trying to make a reservation i was so turned off, we went elsewhere even though friends were staying there. i spoke with a gentleman over the phone after researching online - perhaps someone was having a bad day, but felt like it didn't need to be shifted to anyone else. then again maybe it wasn't meant to be but...

Nolan72, Owner at Elk Mountain Lodge, responded to this review

I'm sorry your phone experience did not meet your expectations. Unfortunately we have policies that do not accommodate your needs. Our lodge is Historic and we do not allow 4 young kids in one room out of courtesy to our other guests. Our rooms only hold 2 people and it's more of an adult atmosphere at the Elk Mtn Lodge. More
