This is a true hidden gem! We drove our sideXsides 65 miles through the Gravelley Mountains to the remote Elk Lake Resort and spent two nights in one of their cozy, cute and clean cabins. Of course, you can drive in much closer from Henry's Lake, ID or Monida, MT., along the Centennial Mountains and Red Rock Lakes. A delicious homemade breakfast was included each morning... the breakfast items are a wonderful, unique surprise each morning. We fished or took drives during the day then came back for cocktails and a fantastic dinner at the lodge. The lake is beautiful and has swans and ducks talking to you as you use the free paddle boat or canoes. Our friend said he caught a fish so big that he couldn't get it into the boat... so he let it loose!! Jake and Laurel are great hosts and do everything they can to make your stay the most enjoyable event of all! You've got to put a stay at the Elk Lake Resort on your bucket list! Or, make it an annual event like we plan to do.

We loved having our wedding at Elk Lake! It was everything we could have hoped for for our wedding. It really was the perfect space for the two of us and our closest family and friends. The food was amazing and the views are breathtaking!

This is a wonderful place for couples that are just looking to relax and enjoy their surroundings. The fishing looks amazing and I can only imagine what the winter months are like at this place. Extremely peaceful and just a get hidden gem for those that want to reconnect and enjoy nature. Best for couples and not families with young kids or teens.

I married my wife at Elk Lake in 2018 and we couldn't have been happier! We rented the entire resort out for 2 nights in August. From the very beginning the owners were patient, helpful and very accommodating. It gave us enormous peace of mind that all meals, tent set up, and chairs for the ceremony were taken care of beforehand. They also gave us information on where to find extra camping trailers and sound systems. We and our guests enjoyed the cabins. The accommodations are rustic, and hot water for showers ran out in the bigger cabins, but we found them to be clean, well-kept and had charming decor. The beds were comfortable with excellent bedding. There are handicap accessible cabins. It's important to note that there is no cell service on-site, which was an inconvenience for some guests. You can use the land-line in the lodge. We had 2 breakfasts and 2 dinners, and guests were given sack lunches for the day (regular lunches are available though) The quiche, prime rib, salmon, ribs and desserts were excellent, and there was more than enough food for everyone. They were served punctually and the staff accommodated our schedules generously. The scenery around Elk Lake is fantastic, our ceremony had beautiful lakes and mountains in the background with no other people around to distract us. The setting is very romantic! Our guests had a great time hiking, fishing, and boating that Saturday. There is a spacious and well-maintained lawn that we played Frisbee and Badminton on. There is a modestly-sized firepit we had campfires around. People had a great time around the fire, although with ~32 people it was a bit cramped, and it would have been nice to have a bigger firepit. There are 2 kayaks, a paddle boat and some motorboats which were fun. It would have been nice to have some more kayaks or a paddleboard for the guests. Altogether we had a great time. If you want a small, simple wedding or a family reunion I would definitely recommend Elk Lake. My family keeps telling me we will have to have our anniversaries here, I think they're looking for an excuse to come back!

Hi Tim, Thank you for taking the time to write such a thorough review, and thank you for your kind words and for your suggestions for improvement. I do think paddle boards are a great idea since they seems to be all the rage right now! As for a bigger fire pit, a bigger fire pit means a bigger fire and we like to have a bit more control that a smaller pit gives us, living in the woods as we do. But I do understand that 32 is a lot of people to get around a fire! We enjoyed your family and friends so much and loved the laid-back feel of your entire event...you were a delight to host. Thank you for choosing Elk Lake Resort for such an important event and please do come visit again.

Our family has been going to elk lake for many years each summer. Although the kids are no longer young, they still want to go back to elk lake. It is a wonderful get away from the world. Tv, Cell phones and I pads are forgotten and nature, conversation and fun are remembered. The owners are amazing, the food wonderful and the memories priceless.
