If you're looking for a place with amenities, this is not the place. However, if you want to enjoy primitive Montana then by all means give this place a try. We stayed in the hotel above the restaurant and then price was well worth it. We had lunch and dinner there and the food and service was excellent. Breakfast was... More

A lot of potential here, but in dire need of a make over...pretty rustic, hot springs were good, as was the food. Cabin was clean, but old. Indoor hot spring/sauna was the hottest I've ever experienced. Employees appear overworked (guy power washing the pool was our waiter that evening) but were very pleasant and accommodating. My husband and kids LOVED... More

Do not go here. Do not take family or friends. Do not ever visit. Montana has lots of hot springs to visit that you can go with others and have a great time. Just because this is off the beaten trail, secluded under a canopy of stars at night, surrounded by pine trees and an ambiance that seduces you to... More

The menu and food are like your neighborhood family restaurant (if it had a bar) but this neighborhood is nestled alongside the beautiful Pioneer Mountains Scenic Byway, Polaris, Montana with hot springs and rustic cabins. Plenty of locals blend with tourists, visitors. Don't be in a rush, this is neither fast food nor elegant food -- just darn good fresh... More

I stayed at Elkhorn Hotsprings this week. My mother and I were on a trip through south central Montana. We had a room with two beds in the lodge, our room was clean, and the beds were very comfortablel. The hot springs were just the right temperature, since I do not like them very hot. The food was amazing. If... More

really fun place to hangout at the end of the day. you can bring in drinks, as long as it's not glass, and have a good time with other travelers. 3 different pools with 3 different temperatures so you can always find one that fits you well.

After a day of snowboarding at Maverick Mountain, the Elkhorn Lodge was a welcome surprise! The staff was so friendly and accommodating. The lodge accommodations were very comfortable and inviting...we felt warmth all over first thing walking in the front door. The hot springs were just what our tired muscles were begging for...and the food was awesome. The dinner presentation... More
