Elk Mountain Lodge is a nice lodging facility located a few miles outside of Jemez. Well maintained.
We were frequent quests for several years and really enjoyed the propery until Terry, the owner, got himself a dog that roams the property unleashed. The dog is very friendly, a little too friendly for our liking and would not leave us alone throughout our stay always jumping on us and our vehicle - leaving numerous stratches. We brought our little (leashed) puppy with us and the owner's dog would not leave our dog alone - we had to load our puppy in the car to take it offsite to relieve himself.
Needless to say we won't be back and it is such a shame that the owner Terry wouldn't keep his dog either leashed or pinned, now we are left with no where to stay when visiting the area. Bummer!
