We did a mini family reunion here last week. My parents, brother, niece, nephew and nephew's girlfriend stayed in one of the cabins while my husband and I stayed in the main lodge. The whole experience was fantastic. There's no cell service, so the kids put down their phones! We hiked and paddled during the day and played games at... More

Deer Flies biting us all the time. it was difficult to enjoy the place because we were being bit all the time. The meals were not that good. The service staff was fine. The lake is fabulous to look at behind a screened in porch

Cabin was small, you could barely dry yourself coming out of the shower in the small bathroom. Very expensive - $450 per night. Gratuity built into charges, but totally ridiculous was gratuity charge put on getting a glass of wine at dinner. Really, what is the difference between the server getting you an ice tea and a glass of wine?... More

This was our 3rd trip to Elk Lake Lodge. We stayed in Little Tom cabin in July 2015. This cabin is perfect for sitting out on the deck and having the incredible Elk Lake view within grasp. No matter what the weather is, this place is stunning. Rustic and romantic for couples. The cabin, however, is desperately in need of... More

What a beautiful, peaceful location! My family of four recently stayed in the Hadley cottage which overlooked the pristine Elk Lake. This is a back to nature's paradise. A great place to unwind , relax and enjoy the company of family and friends. We loved the rustic feel and the delicious meals that were served with a smile. We made... More

Stayed at the Windfall cottage. This is a truly remarkable and beautiful place. The setting has a western feel with its rugged mountains. We ate breakfast watching an eagle in the tree. The brook trout in the stream along the lodge are plentiful. It is a real treat to have so much amazing scenery for just a few people. The... More

Built at the water's edge of a pristine lake surrounded by a private nature preserve. Extensive network of private trails lead to unique and spectacular views of the cirque surrounding Elk Lake. Hummingbirds crowd the feeders outside of the dining room. I still can't figure out why the brown bag lunches are so good (other than perhaps because they are... More

We’ve stayed at Elk Lake Lodge six times in the past seven years, driving there from Virginia. Obviously, we love the place and its intense natural beauty. Perhaps our favorite activity is slowly paddling around the lake, letting it all sink in. The food is high quality, well prepared and served with a smile. Rooms are comfortable if not luxurious....

Just spent 2 nights at Elk Lake. Amazingly peaceful place, set among the high peaks of the adirondacks. There are no tv's or wifi (except in the main lodge), so you really have an opportunity to get away from it all. With all meals included, and only 20 guests at a time, you have no excuse but to relax doing... More
