We stayed in Early March there was still snow on the ground!! Love our accommodations. Owners were very nice. Had a very hearty bowl of Oatmeal chocked full of Raisins , nuts bananas ---It was a great way to start the day. Beds were very comfortable. Each room is decorated differently. Just a nice stay!!!

Had a great experience this past weekend at the Elk Mountain Lodge, stayed in the royal aspen room. Beautiful room, warm and cozy environment, best burrito, and customer service in town. Would definitely recommend to family and friends. Wish we could have stayed longer. The Michnuks

Recently stayed on a stay-cation with my wife. Let's just say that I was a little suspicious of the excellent reviews I saw on Tripadvisor, but booked anyway. Well, the reviews are right- this place is amazing. The Ponderosa room was homey and clean and spacious and warm. Big windows and high ceiling, with radiant heat floors to keep things... More

When I looked online for accomodations in Jemez Springs, I was hoping to find something better than the dismal offerings in the town itself. And I did. The minute I saw the photo and the location of Elk Mountain Lodge, I wanted to stay there. and when I saw a photo of the Aspen suite, there was no question I... More

My husband and I planned a semi-local getaway from Albuquerque over New Year's Day weekend and booked a room at Elk Mountain Lodge. The lodge is located just off of highway 4 driving through the Jemez mountains, but we didn't notice any traffic noise from the near-by roadways at all. Our room was beautifully appointed, with a comfy king bed,... More

My party of two stayed at the Elk, Mt. Lodge on December 17, 2014. We had been very wary of the potential for bad weather and, sure enough, as we approached the Lodge toward dusk light snow began to fall and about 2-3 inches were on the ground by the time we arrived. But, not to worry, the hosts Garth... More

We (three couples on a two week motorcycle trip through New Mexico) stayed there for one night before going on to Taos. Without a doubt we all wished we could have spent more time there.

This lodge was beautiful and very comfortable. The owners, Garth and Robin, went above and beyond to make it an enjoyable time for us this past weekend.

Great place to stay, great company, great food (one of the greatest breakfast burritos made), great air, great pets. Can't say enough nice about this place. The owners are friendly and rather quiet, you can tell why they chose to run a business here. The air is crisp, there are maybe 100 people living within a square mile, and thats... More

What a splendid and serendipitous find for my wife and me. We hiked to McCauley’s Hot Spring in mid-October 2014. The trailhead is between Jemez Springs, NM and the Elk Mountain Lodge, so the lodge was very conveniently located for any activities in Jemez Springs or the Jemez Valley. It was a restful and pleasant overnight. The lodge is situated... More
