We were welcomed by the great hosts and their dogs. We only spent one night but heard of great hikes in the area to hot springs from fellow renters. They provided us with a BBQ grill and a large pot from their kitchen. So bring your own food. The morning surprise was 6" of snow that no one expected. The... More

The master bedroom in Tall Pines Cabin is huge and has four large windows that are high on the walls. You can lie in bed and look up the mountainside through giant ponderosas. There is a kitchenette with sink, mini fridge (turned out to be a mini freezer), microwave and two chairs at a built-in table. The bathroom has a... More

My newlywed husband and I found Elk Mountain Lodge on TripAdvisor and upon arrival knew that it was the right decision! The staff are so friendly and made us feel more like family as opposed to mere guests. The cabin was phenomenal and the private hot tub was amazing, especially under the stars! We had our own private balcony, a... More

We were completely impressed with the staff and location of this quiet little retreat! We were treated more like family instead of guests, which made us feel so comfortable during our stay! We could not have asked for a better place to spend part of our honeymoon! We had the biggest cabin with a private hot tub outside and it... More

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
