The Elk Mountain Lodge is an incredible to stay if you are looking for authentic Crested Butte experience, for the building has been so lovingly restored and maintained. The location is terrific! I could walk into town, just 2 blocks away, whenever I wished or take one of the hiking trails just out of town without ever stepping into my car. The service is wonderful from the breakfasts in the morning to their policy of allowing guests to use their refrigerator and microwave. They even have a bar right there in the lodge!

Room Tip: All rooms have great views of the mountains.

What an awesome stay! Lori, our innkeeper couldn't have been more inviting! We liked the history and local flavor. The fresh breakfast was a bonus. Lori provided many insights to what made the town interesting. The room was large and furnished well. Best said, if we return to Crested Butte, we will stay at Elk Mountain Lodge.

My boyfriend and I had an amazing stay at the Elks Mountain Lodge in Crested Butte, CO this past week. The rooms were clean and comfortable with a great view of the 7 ft of fresh snow right outside our window! Each morning we had a complimentary breakfast of coffee, tea, OJ, fresh fruit, assortment of breads, yogurt and granola. They also offered a hot breakfast including cheesy scrambled eggs the first day, and cinnamon french toast with bacon the second. (A great way to start your day when getting ready to hit the slopes!) Don't want to worry about driving to the mountain and find parking?? The Elks Mountain Lodge has you covered. Walking distance to down town, the bus stop to take you to the mountain is located two streets away! After a long day of skiing, the best part was coming back to Elks Mountain Lodge and hitting up their hot tub!! All around one the best trips we have taken and will definitely be back. Thank you Mike and the rest of the staff for all your help and making our Valentines weekend so special!

in trying to make a reservation i was so turned off, we went elsewhere even though friends were staying there. i spoke with a gentleman over the phone after researching online - perhaps someone was having a bad day, but felt like it didn't need to be shifted to anyone else. then again maybe it wasn't meant to be but we never got the chance to see.

the person answering the phone and working the front desk is the frontline of a business and the first impression anyone will have - hope they realize this.

I'm sorry your phone experience did not meet your expectations. Unfortunately we have policies that do not accommodate your needs. Our lodge is Historic and we do not allow 4 young kids in one room out of courtesy to our other guests. Our rooms only hold 2 people and it's more of an adult atmosphere at the Elk Mtn Lodge.

Our second stay at the lodge solidified why we love this town. The owner and staff make you feel like home. The breakfast is excellent as the food is always fresh and delicious. We loved that the breakfast time was flexible and we did not have to be at a table for a set eating time. For the skiers out there, they have a locker on the mountain for ski and boot storage. There were always fresh cookies or cake in the lobby for those wanting a snack during the day.

The location is perfect. It's a short walk to the town and bus stop. The views of the mountain from the room were spectacular. The rooms were clean.

Hopefully this will sum up our stay here...the staff and owner spent time to get tot know us and inform us of all the great things this town has to offer. We even spent a great happy hour with the owner at their bar. What a great evening!

Thanks for a great trip. We can't wait to return to Elk Mountain Lodge and CB SOON!

Room Tip: Second floor rooms are bigger.

We stayed here on a recent visit. Originally booking through hotwires low rate guarantee rooms so we didn't know whet the hotel was until after we paid. We were very happy with the location we got. The rooms were cute, beds comfy, and overall even with a packed house it was quiet. I suggest you request a room that isn't on the top sides because the ceiling are sloped and my husband hit his head numerous times. The staff set the front desk was friendly, and this location was so close to everything, not to mention free parking in a hard to find parking time of year! Great value for the money, definitely would stay here again!

We've been coming to this treasured B&B for the past 10 years during the winter season.
The rooms are comfortable and very clean. We always select the larger rooms to have more space. The breakfast is very good and you'll never go hungry.
The staff is the most teasured aspect of our stay. Coming back yearly has enabled us get to know the staff well and enjoy having conversations with them to learn more about the lifestyle of Crested Butte. This great little town tucked away in the mountains offers a unique experience unlike all the slick ski resorts in Colorado. The Lodge is located in the town only 2 blocks from the main street where there are many great restaurants and the free shuttles to the ski mountain about 10 minutes away.
The Elk Mountain Lodge feels like our home away from home.
