This place was an old boardinghouse built in 1919. Along with the great history, I have to admit I was expecting clanky pipes and poor soundproofing, typical of places built 100 years ago. Elk Mountain Lodge does have the great history but everything functions like it was newly built! Mike has put so much work into renovating and upgrading everything.... More

Well it's getting to the point where I'm a bit concerned about writing these really good ones up, seems like I return and there's no room for me... This place is very nice, small number of rooms, really, really good breakfasts, great location, close to town, as in two blocks over from Elk (Main Street), yet far enough off the... More

This is the second year I've stayed at the Elk Mountain Lodge when traveling through Crested Butte with my mum. The rooms are very clean and comfortable and we've had nice views of the mountains! The breakfast in the morning has been great.There's normally cereals, yogurt, toast bagels, and something hot like pancakes or eggs. One morning there were some... More

Wonderful place to stay in the prettiest town in Colorado. Great friendly, very helpful staff with an awesome breakfast to look forward to in the morning. Right in town. Can go on beautiful hikes and bike rides right from the lodge. Hope to be back again soon.

I stayed for one night on my way to a board retreat. If you want to be in a location where you can work to downtown and be close to hiking, this is a great option. The breakfast is great -- and the main room where you can relax offers a lot of nice spaces. And I think it's great... More

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.
