Amazing breakfast, huge hot tub and easy walking distance to the shuttle for skiing. We loved the homey feeling, lots of sitting areas to relax, very kind and flexible staff. Old inn, so expect the rooms and carpet to be dated, and bring ear plugs for thin walls, but the charm and location more than makes up for it. We didn’t have time for a drink at their little bar, I’m looking forward to that next time.

We absolutely loved staying at the Elk Mountain Lodge. All of the employees were wonderful and so helpful. They even helped me find contact solution when I forgot to pack mine. The breakfasts were delicious and they always have hot water and tea out. The rooms were very comfortable and cute and exactly what we needed for a ski weekend. Highly recommend and will definitely be back!

Great Lodge
Amazing lodge! Quiet and comfortable with unbeatable hospitality! Breakfast was good each morning (3 days) even the coffee. Warm feel and the lounge/restaurant areas were welcoming. This is our 2nd straight year here and I would imagine it’s just as amazing in summertime. Thank you Elk Mountain Lodge!!!

Wonderful retreat in Crested Butte!
Elk Mountain Lodge is a gem in Crested Butte! We walked to restaurants and to the various XC ski trails & snow shoe trails. Staff was always friendly and helpful. The breakfasts were different each morning and tasty. My bed and pillows were extremely comfortable and the bathroom impeccably clean. Enjoyed the hot tub!

This was my first time staying at a lodge, and I loved it so much! The staff and atmosphere was so personable, homey, and warm. Matt checked us in and was our bartender the first night and he was great, answered all questions we had and offered suggestions. The hot tub was amazing. Even though their parking lot was full, it was easy to find street parking. I would definitely stay here again.
