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.

Thank you for your kind remarks that I will share with my staff because it is a team effort and they do not always get the feedback. Thank you also for letting us know that our efforts are appreciated, it is what makes the job worthwhile. Susan H. Innkeeper More

I accidentally found this hotel while looking for someplace in the area to stay, so we could explore the mountains. We had such a wonderful time, the food was excellent our room was wonderful, such a relaxing and comfortable place for couples for sure! Susan & Arthur made our anniversary extra special and we can't wait to go back!

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...

We had a great experience staying at the Historic Elk Mountain hotel. The hospitality was superb and the food at the restaurant was of high quality. The room we stayed in was comfortable and very clean. One note - there are no services in the town. No grocery store, no local bar or cafe. Be prepared for the quiet solitude... More

Thanks for your kind remarks Haley. There is no bar, although the hotel has a full license so you can have a drink anywhere on the hotel premises. Although we do not have shops, there is a supermarket in Hanna which is about 14 miles away (next door by Wyoming standards) and there is a café, but it is only... More

My wife and I were taking an 11 day drive around the country for my 50th birthday. Since I made her spend the night in a TiPi up by Devils Tower, I thought she could use some pampering and spoiling.

My husband and I are looking into moving to Wyoming in the near future. We chose Elk Mountain for its beautiful scenery. When we got there the weather was not so great and construction was going on around the Hotel. In spite of that, the couple who own the property, Susan and Arthur were fabulous!!

At the Elk Mountain Hotel you are actually treated like a guest, not merely referred to as one. Arthur and Susan are concerned and thoughtful, two words you wouldn’t usually choose for a hotel staff. They looked up road conditions for us (we were snowed in during part of our stay and had restricted travel.) They provided several other things... More

What an amazing find. We were driving from UT to CO. It was the dead of Winter and we were tired. I had booked the hotel in advance. What a wonderful surprise. The Inn is first rate.
