We went out west to do "The Grand Circle" of national parks. I am so thankful that we chose Elk Mountain Lodge for a night's stay. The owners were wonderful. They were very sweet and caring. Since we were traveling thousands of miles, we were running a little late on our arrival time. We called and the owners were great.... More

As you drive in the first thing you notice is the detailed landscaping that blends perfectly with the surrounding forest. More than likely you will find the owner busy at work tending to the beautiful surroundings. The cabins have a rustic appearance so you can have the feeling of being in the woods. It is very quiet and peaceful. If... More

There are many positives about this inn. We stayed in the two bedroom cottage which was large. Robin and Garth are friendly and helpful, and I enjoyed the breakfasts. There is a hot tub and plenty of seating on the various outside decks. My main complaint, and reason for the average rating, is because you don't have a true bathroom.... More
