We were looking for a unique hotel for a one night stay between Jackson Hole and Denver. What a delightful find the Elk Mountain Hotel was! Our room was very clean and comfortable. We enjoyed before dinner cocktails in the parlor where we had an opportunity to review pictures of the restoration and visit with the owners, Susan and Arthur.... More

Stayed at the Inn for one night. Dinner was superb. Had stuffer fish stuffed with crab and a complied with lobster sauce. Breakfast in the morning was also wonderful. My companions also thoroughly enjoyed their meals.

The craftsmanship of the restoration of this facility is great. The hotel was very clean, comfortable beds and quiet, well appointed rooms. The staff has thought of everything. The food was outstanding. Will certainly return. Great value for the money. Staff cares a lot and is very helpful.

Thanks Tommy, glad you enjoyed your stay, but think you made a typing error as you were in room 11 not 1. The Evans Suite (11), is the only room with a Jacuzzi Tub.

My husband and I had traveled since 3:00 AM ET when we arrived at this lovely hotel. Susan, and her husband Art, greeted us at the door themselves and had us feeling very at home by the time we found our room (The Bridger room, not hard to find, there were just so many lovely things to look at).

Susan Prescott-Havers and her husband Arthur are marvelous hosts. They have owned the hotel for 10 years and seek to make every guest comfortable in a setting dating from 1905. In a nod to the past, the upstairs halls are decorated with posters advertising past events at the hotel such as Les Brown and his Band of Renown. A delightful... More

Clean, beautiful historic inn. Was the perfect get away. Absolutely beautiful. Comfortable beds, really clean everywhere, no dust, not one issue with lodging. No television, which was a refreshing thing.

The bullet holes in the road sign - 2 miles from the hotel - are no indication of the fabulous place you are about to find! The whole Inn is just so inviting with a really warm welcome from the owners, In the lobby is a huge Bison head - Lucky. He keeps an eye on things. There is a... More

Elk Mountain has a tiny population and is perfectly located on the road between Denver and Yellowstone National Park. What a brilliant place to stop, with the most divine breakfast and dinner available - cordon bleu trained chef and owner. It was a real treat to stay here.

To start off – everything was absolutely perfect! The B&B is situated in the town of Elk Mountian, pop. approximately 200. There are a few houses which testify to the fact that people truly live in the community, but we saw no one and the post office and library (yes, there is one) were closed. The tiny church did not...
