We had four nights at this cozy lodge. We were made to feel very welcome and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The service is fantastic and all the recommendations the staff made about crested butte were excellent. We are very happy to recommend this unique property and hope that we can make it back here again in the future. Top location,... More

The Elk Mountain Lodge was clean, comfortable and quiet. It's a great location for experiencing the town of Crested Butte as well as an easy shuttle ride to the mountain for skiing. The shuttle stop is two blocks away as are great restaurants and shops. The breakfast was delicious and wonderful to wake up to every morning. We will definitely... More

We enjoyed the great bar in this beautiful historic lodge. Excellent staff. Well managed. Worth a visit. The town is near Crested Butte, a fantastic ski resort that never seems to get too crowded. We found plenty to do every day we were here. We happened to hit an outstanding week of snow in January which made both downhill and... More

We loved this place. The outside is nice and quaint with a small front porch, nice shady trees and beautiful flowers helping to make it feel more personal and relaxed. The main floor is where the front desk, the bar and the breakfast area is located. This area is nice and spacious with couches and comfy chairs as well as... More

This place was an old boardinghouse built in 1919. Along with the great history, I have to admit I was expecting clanky pipes and poor soundproofing, typical of places built 100 years ago. Elk Mountain Lodge does have the great history but everything functions like it was newly built! Mike has put so much work into renovating and upgrading everything.... More

Well it's getting to the point where I'm a bit concerned about writing these really good ones up, seems like I return and there's no room for me... This place is very nice, small number of rooms, really, really good breakfasts, great location, close to town, as in two blocks over from Elk (Main Street), yet far enough off the... More

This is the second year I've stayed at the Elk Mountain Lodge when traveling through Crested Butte with my mum. The rooms are very clean and comfortable and we've had nice views of the mountains! The breakfast in the morning has been great.There's normally cereals, yogurt, toast bagels, and something hot like pancakes or eggs. One morning there were some... More

Wonderful place to stay in the prettiest town in Colorado. Great friendly, very helpful staff with an awesome breakfast to look forward to in the morning. Right in town. Can go on beautiful hikes and bike rides right from the lodge. Hope to be back again soon.

I stayed for one night on my way to a board retreat. If you want to be in a location where you can work to downtown and be close to hiking, this is a great option. The breakfast is great -- and the main room where you can relax offers a lot of nice spaces. And I think it's great... More
