What an amazing find. We were driving from UT to CO. It was the dead of Winter and we were tired. I had booked the hotel in advance. What a wonderful surprise. The Inn is first rate. All the appointments and the inn itself has been renovated to premiere status. The biggest surprise though was that the owner is a... More

We booked this hotel after being let down by an Airbnb host in Saratoga - so glad we did! This is such a unique and memorable place, packed full of history and character. Our room was incredible, from the ambient birdsong to the fireplace, jacuzzi bath and naughty pics on the walls! The food was fantastic - just wish we... More

Historic Elk Mountain Hotel sits in a tiny community, away from the hustle and bustle of town life. It's a lovely looking building inside and out, with a real country lodge feel - helped by the enormous bison head mounted on the wall of the entrance hall! We were greeted by Susan, the owner/chef, who is British. She showed us... More

The room was wonderful and had a historic flair. The service was great and the hosts came out and spoke with the guests during dinner. They also gave great recommendations for exploring around the area. Excellent food. The best part was the relaxed atmosphere. You could feel the stress roll away!

Pleasant surprise in this very small town. Accomodations very comfortable. We had the downstairs room with the private patio, and wish we had more time to enjoy the relaxed atmosphere. Did take a leisurely, late-afternoon walk around town -- very quiet. Even saw deer playing in the small park. I recommend their dining room.

Glad you liked our little place, we try to do our best with what we have here. Beautiful scenery, wildlife, clean air, and quite a bit of history of the old wild west still accessible. More

We had heard nothing but good things from friends that have stayed there. They were spot on.. The historic Hotel met all our expectations, but the dining was beyond belief. World class chef and a back bar featuring single malt scotch. Cant wait to go back,

My wife and I spent two nights at this lovely historic hotel. It is undoubtedly the cleanest hotel that we have ever stayed in. We stayed in the Nellie Ross room with everything just perfect. The decor of the hotel is marvelous with the largest mounted buffalo head that I have ever seen located in the reading room. This hotel... More

Their website made the hotel sound wonderful, but our impression upon arrival fell so far short of expectations that we elected not to stay. We offered to pay for one night, but they stood firm on their 48-hour cancellation rule and charged us for two nights. We would simply caution others to see the hotel in person before making a...

This reviewer was never a guest at the hotel or the restaurant. He reserved a room for two nights and the confirmation he received stated the cancellation policy of 48 hours quite clearly. We make exceptions for emergencies, closure of the interstate and if we can rent cancelled rooms (a rarity since we are a destination rather than a transient... More

My husband and I spent one night at the Elk Mountain Hotel and have already made reservations to return with another couple in six weeks. The hotel and the diningroom were all that we had hoped and more. Our room, the Louis Armstrong, was comfortable in every way, while preserving the feel of an hotel over 100 years old. Lovely...

If you like historic hotels as I do, this one is an absolute delight. It has been beautifully renovated, each room is decorated differently and each room has its own modern bathroom. The entire hotel is absolutely immaculate and perfectly maintained. The menu in the serene dining room has a great selection and everything we had was absolutely delicious! Best... More
