I wish I could have stayed for ever. I will definitely be back. I can't really find words to explain how magical this place is.The cabin was cozy and included EVERYTHING we needed. The hot tub under the stars was all ours whenever we wanted it. The property is amazing- you don't even have to leave. There are firepits all around (bring firewood) and a river and pond on property. The lakes are SORT OF far in comparison to the other lodges but the seclusion is great, trust me. There is no hint of the main road while you are on property. We got locked out of the Prospector cabin in the middle of the night but Scott took care of us immediately. There are hummingbirds and wildflowers everywhere! We also saw an elk down by the stream on property. Our front porch had an amazing view of the mountains. Everything was PERFECT.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- We began as a base camp for miners back in the heyday of Colorado's mining boom and today we are a quiet get-away nestled in National Forest at the base of Colorado's highest peak. Step out of today's hectic world into a quieter time at Mt. Elbert Lodge. We have no TVs, radios or phones in our comfortable housekeeping cabins; we do have a front row seat to the Colorado Rockies. ... more less
