“We had a great stay at Elk Mountain Lodge! Very cozy and inviting inside…love the decor and all the plants. Friendly and welcoming staff; we appreciated the afternoon cookies, tea, and conversation. The secured bike room and outside bike wash station also made things easy. Hot tub was amazing (it’s always nice when they are functional)! Excellent location, close to everything. We will absolutely be back.”

“The Elk Mountain Lodge is a wonderful place to stay if you find yourself in the Crested Butte area. It’s location, mere blocks from the historic downtown area, is ideal for exploring Crested Butte’s restaurants and coffee shops. The hotel itself definitely retains the historic feel, while still having comfortable beds and clean rooms. The staff were also extraordinarily helpful and knowledgeable about the area. Would definitely stay again!”
