On our 2nd visit to CB, we stayed at the Elk Mountain Lodge, conveniently located near Main Street in the Historic District. The main floor sitting room and our bedroom were tastefully furnished with nice attention to detail. It's also clear that extra attention is focused on reuse and recycle. The owner and staff were very friendly and helpful. Because... More

Husband and I have stayed here twice each time in the summer months. It is downtown 2 blocks from the main drag. They have bikes out front you just ride around town, no charge. And besides the ridiculously beautiful flowers all over the place in Crested Butte in the summer, one of the other cool things is being able to... More

This was our first trip to Crested Butte. We wanted to Nordic ski primarily. Elk Mountain is located right on the edge of this small town in a residential neighborhood. The town of Crested Butte is very compact making everything easily accessible by foot. Our room faced Mt Crested Butte-beautiful ! We enjoyed a lovely breakfast daily from 730-900. Expresso... More

We spent 3 nights here whilst touring the ski fields of SW Colorado & was definitely our favourite. The old town of Crested Butte along with this lodge is full of the areas mining history & quite charming. Location is perfect within walking distance to Main Street & great range of restaurants. Our room on the second floor was spacious... More

Super convenient location. Very comfy bed and pillows. Great atmosphere, yummy breakfast and Brian was a wonderful host. Loved the hot tub and home like common areas. Would definitely recommend this for a couples or friends getaway.

We loved our stay at the Elk Mountain Lodge. It's a historic former miner's hotel. As such, the rooms are small but there are lots of common areas for lounging and reading - which works well if one person likes to get up early and others like to sleep late! There is a community refrigerator for guests to use and... More

An old miners dormitory turned into an inn is a perfect spot to stay in the historic area of Crested Butte. Great location and great staff. Very welcoming and helpful. Delicious breakfast included. Rooms are small but charming and very clean. Best place I've stayed in Crested Butte!

Unexpected spring skiing in February, great fun, really good breakfast, downtown location makes dinner easy. I come here every year. Staff are very helpful. Public transportation makes this location so easy to travel around town and to the mountain. Enjoy.

The hotel, staff, and location are awesome. Breakfast in the morning is fresh. Rooms are clean. Short walk to the shuttle. Short walk to really good restaurants and bars. The staff really is accommodating and friendly.

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
