Our fifth stay at Elk Lake took our breaths away as much as the first! This is a place for slow or strenuous hikers and paddlers, or those who just want an Adirondacks chair and good book. The dining room serves all-American fare, from blueberry pancakes to New York strips. Choice of two or three main courses per evening, which... More

What a gorgeous, restful, tranquil, serene (etc., etc.) place. We stayed in Windfall Cottage, which was pricey for just two people but 100% worth it for the incredible views and privacy -- just what we wanted (and needed!) to unwind from the wonderful madness of our wedding. As other people have mentioned, this is not a place to expect culinary... More

We really enjoyed our stay at Elk Lake Lodge. After a six mile drive off the road into Adirondack wilderness, we arrived at a lake surrounded by mountain peaks, stocked with trout, home of loons....the water was pristine and cool, just right for swimming! We loved the water front, with a raft and huge dock and Adirondack style chairs to... More

We did a mini family reunion here last week. My parents, brother, niece, nephew and nephew's girlfriend stayed in one of the cabins while my husband and I stayed in the main lodge. The whole experience was fantastic. There's no cell service, so the kids put down their phones! We hiked and paddled during the day and played games at... More

Deer Flies biting us all the time. it was difficult to enjoy the place because we were being bit all the time. The meals were not that good. The service staff was fine. The lake is fabulous to look at behind a screened in porch

Cabin was small, you could barely dry yourself coming out of the shower in the small bathroom. Very expensive - $450 per night. Gratuity built into charges, but totally ridiculous was gratuity charge put on getting a glass of wine at dinner. Really, what is the difference between the server getting you an ice tea and a glass of wine?... More

This was our 3rd trip to Elk Lake Lodge. We stayed in Little Tom cabin in July 2015. This cabin is perfect for sitting out on the deck and having the incredible Elk Lake view within grasp. No matter what the weather is, this place is stunning. Rustic and romantic for couples. The cabin, however, is desperately in need of... More

A great place to unwind , relax and enjoy the company of family and friends. We loved the rustic feel and the delicious meals that were served with a smile. We made... More

Stayed at the Windfall cottage. This is a truly remarkable and beautiful place. The setting has a western feel with its rugged mountains. We ate breakfast watching an eagle in the tree. The brook trout in the stream along the lodge are plentiful. It is a real treat to have so much amazing scenery for just a few people. The... More

Built at the water's edge of a pristine lake surrounded by a private nature preserve. Extensive network of private trails lead to unique and spectacular views of the cirque surrounding Elk Lake. Hummingbirds crowd the feeders outside of the dining room. I still can't figure out why the brown bag lunches are so good (other than perhaps because they are... More
