The Historic Elk Mountain Hotel

Reviewed February 1, 2014

We came across this place as we were on our way to Yellowstone, the fact that the owners were Brits was not why we stayed there, however as Brits ( sorry we are English) the welcome was very very friendly as we arrived early. Susan & Arthur are the best hosts you can find & their history is fascinating & we know only to well why they live away from the old country. Susan's passion for good food is evident in what was on offer & Arthur's laconic wit made the stay an exceptional event. Thanks guys for all that you did for us, broken toes to mention one thing & glasses another, not sure if we will get back to you again, probably to your advantage.

Great stay. Lovely old building, quiet town, great food and accommodation. My girlfriend and I had just graduated from grad school, so we were unaccustomed to being pampered or consuming things besides hastily made spaghetti and reheated coffee. Thus, the Elk Mountain was the perfect change of pace. Finest meal of my short, professional life. We wanted to stay for a week. Felt like royalty--Arthur even gave us some wine as a congratulatory graduation gift. I would recommend it to anyone.

My husband and I were caught in the sudden storm last week (on our way home to Toronto from San Francisco) and someone huddled with us at the gas station trying to wait out the storm told us of the Elk. We made our way there when safe and it was such a refuge in the storm! Susan was gratious and accomodating and even made us a hot tea when we arrived. She is an amazing cook and prepared us a wonderful dinner in her attached restaurant that evening. And we got video of deer on the property. Accomodations were wonderful, comfortable and clean and the common area had a warming fire on for everyone. Breakfast was lovely with unlimited good coffee and pasteries and more! Thank you Susan and Arthur !! Much appreciated!

Room Tip: The king size bed was very comfortable!

We wanted a quiet, stress-free place to get away from our everyday hectic lives, and we found it at the Elk Mountain Hotel in Elk Mountain, Wyoming. This historic hotel is truly a gem. We were treated special from the moment we stepped into the door. The atmosphere is one that encourages you to relax. The rooms are exquisitely decorated, and we were able to enjoy the hotel’s parlor area for further quiet time. We enjoyed amazing meals, prepared by the owner, Susan, and received first class attention and service. We will definitely tell our friends about this wonderful place, and we are already planning our next stay.

As a business traveler who spends several nights a year on the road, the Elk Mtn. Hotel is my favorite place to stay. Susan and Arthur work so hard to ensure that all my needs are met while at the Hotel. The environment is very safe for a woman traveling alone. The food, rooms and owners are beyond words!
The Hotel is my home away from home when I am on the road in Carbon County. Thank you Susan and Arthur for always being there for me.

Room Tip: Room # 10 is my favorite.

Our group of four hunters had an enjoyable stay for four days this past September on our first antelope hunt in Wyoming. This venue was perfect for our needs and the food was very upscale. Susan and her staff went out of their way to make our stay memorable and their flexibility was much appreciated. Fred H.

Great weekend get away. Stayed in the hot tub suite. Very nice bedding, nude photos on wall - odd, no air conditioning, two person jacuzzi tub in bathroom. Continental breakfast included which was nice. You can order a hot breakfast off the menu for additional cost. Dinner is by reservation only and was delicious, quaint atmosphere and the mixed drinks were very strong.
