“Friendly and very comfortable”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2013

Our repeat stays at the Elk Mountain Lodge are never disappointing. We love the comfortable lobby and outdoor adirondack chairs. Cookies and hot tea or espresso in the afternoon are a welcome. Very clean rooms with soft bath towels. This small lodge has a delicious and nutritious breakfast to start your day. The main town street is only a couple of blocks away. The staff is always helpful with good information in the area and will make dinner reservations for you. It just doesn't get any better!

I was on a great two-week road trip from Northern ca., and the best three days were at the Elk Mountain Lodge. The location is great. Once you're there, no need to drive. They give you a bicycle to ride to town or walking is a short jaunt. The staff is the best. They made me feel at home. Don't be afraid to talk to the other guests in the morning. I ended up meeting people and had a blast sharing stories and drinking wine with them. I would highly recommend Elk Mountain to any one of my friends and experience a truly memorable stay.

Stayed at the Elk Mountain Lodge over Labor Day and had a great time! The lodge is rustic, welcoming, homey and comfortable. Rooms are pertty basic and clean. Great location in town, great breakfast. Staff went out of their way to connect with everyone during breakfast, and gave some great suggestions for bike rides and must-see's in the area. Will definitely be back!

We had a wonderful time, the staff is super friendly. This place was originally built to house miners in the early part of the last century. The rooms are decent sizes and though not fancy, it is all quite comfortable. The windows in the room open too! There is a front porch with places to sit and a side yard with additional seats.
This is such a nice feature in a town with such great weather! There are two comfortable lounges to sit in, an indoor hot-tub in the basement.
They provide breakfast which sometimes had eggs or pancakes, but always great bread, yogurt and homemade granola. The coffee is quite decent.

Room Tip: I think any room is good, fancier options with a private balcony are upstairs.

Old miners quarters. We stayed in room 20 which was in the front of the house above the Elk Mountain Lodge sign. There is a balcony which was nice and private.(Needs more comfortable chairs) It gets warm up on the 3rd floor, but we could open our door and get some cooler air. Breakfast was fair. Not many choices. The rooms need a charging unit or more plugs for all the phones, iPads, and other electronics. But this is what a old historic building is about. Convenient to town for all the summer activities.

Within walking distance of everything and anything in Crested Butte. Clean rooms, wholesome breakfast, cooked, coffee and tea, and afternoon drinks. The entire staff is friendly and helpful...Brian is the best itch a late check-in.
