Elk Lake is a beautiful setting surrounding by a few of the Adirondack high peaks. Check in and out was easy. Staff were very friendly. The reception area has a nice sitting area with tea, coffee, hot chocolate, treats etc. We stayed in Emerson 1 and found the view from the porch amazing, the rooms clean and comfortable. No TV...

This is a beautiful and serene place to unwind in 10000 acres of high country beauty. It is an old fashioned lodge with small rooms and hearty food. The location and setting are superb. Hiking, boating or just relaxing is what Elk Lake lodge is about, not five star luxury. My wife and hiked up to Sunrise mtn one day... More

I recently went on a biking tour adventure around the Adirondacks. Elk Lake Lodge was my start and finish point. The beauty of the scenery in and around the lodge set the stage for one of my most memorable vacations! The lake and trails are so pristine and inviting! The rustic setting of the lodge promotes a relaxed country living... More

Peace and quiet, incredibly beautiful natural surroundings, good food and a warm welcome. This is true luxury - heading out onto the lake in a canoe or kayak whenever you want to, hiking and not running into anyone, sitting on the dock with a coffee after dinner and listening to the loons. This is my favorite place in America.

The setting is just perfect--like something out of a movie set, the staff are incredibly hard-working and pleasant and fun to be with, and the home-cooked food is better than mom's (sorry, mom!). We have stayed here twice and will be back again and again. If possible we would try to book a cottage that is single occupancy as it... More

My husband has always wanted to stay here since we first drove by the sign 20 years ago. I booked the last room in the lodge in mid July for a stay the end on August. Wow! We had a great time. The lake and surrounding mountains are BEAUTIFUL! Rooms were small but we read that they were. They put... More

We seek lodges where we can park our car and spend days hiking or snow shoeing from the door. At the same time we want pleasant accommodation and meals cooked for us. (See my review earlier this year of the Trapp Family Lodge for our snow shoe experience.) Elk Lake Lodge is located on a privately owned 12,000 acre forest... More

It is hard to find isolation in life, but here you have it with the 7 mile drive in on a rough asphalt road and 2 miles on dusty dirt. Rooms are rustic and reminiscent of a time gone by. We stayed in 'Little Tom' cottage. If we could buy this spot, we would. Me and my hubby alone in... More

This is the second time I've had the pleasure of staying at the Elk Lake Lodge. The rooms are small but perfectly adequate and the bathrooms have recently been updated and renovated. The main room is rustic and so very comfortable. The food is great and the views are amazing...from the huge front porch and deck or the dock or... More

I have stayed here 2 times in the past few years. My friends and I used it as a base camp while hiking the Dix range. I love the ELL but I think it's important to have proper expectations. This is not a luxury resort. The rooms are not fancy. Bathrooms and showers are really small. It is rustic. Having... More
