Elk Mountain Lodge

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

We stayed here last year during amazing snow during 16-17 season; returned this year at a drier snow season. One constant has been Elk Mountain Lodge. Nice breakfasts, wonderful location, and the bar for a nightcap cannot be beat! Looking forward to another visit 2018-19!

This place, while convenient needs a major makeover. All finishes are stuck in the 80s with extremely uncomfortable pillows and mattress. You have to check in by finding a woman in the back kitchen cutting melon for the next mornings breakfast. The spread in the morning is very underwhelming for what you pay($300+). The furnishings throughout are straight out of a flea market.

Our stay at the Elk Mountain Lodge was excellent. The service was great and friendly, and the rooms were adorable and unique. I recommend this place to any kind of visitor in the area. A good place for families and couple's visiting Crested Butte.

This bed and breakfast has a great location! The rooms were cute and everything was nice and clean. I wanted to know the location of the hot tub and the bar hours ( we weren't given info when we checked in, and there was no one at the front desk when I went to inquire). I found what i needed online... The view was spectacular and the breakfast was good-eggs, biscuits, bagels, granola, etc.

We stayed only one night at this quaint inn, and it was wonderful... comfortable, homey, lovely, (and our room had one of the cleanest bathrooms I've ever experienced). Mark, our host, was so friendly and genuinely interested in our enjoyment of Crested Butte. We also met some fellow guests who provided great conversation. We will stay here again!

We had a nice stay here on our recent trip to Colorado. The room was on the second floor and it was clean and the bed was comfortable. The room is small and there is very little horizontal surface, but it was adequate. We used our own “white noise” app at night since we needed to have the window open to keep the room cool. The heater works well. The breakfast was good with some homemade hot dishes each morning. One of the best things about this place is the location, which let us walk into town each day and enjoy the culture of this town.

This was our fourth visit to CB and our first to the Elk Mountain Lodge. It was remarkably well thought-out: every detail was already taken care of. It was very clean and quite lovely. It's not common to find such nice furnishings in pet-friendly rooms and we appreciated it very much! The staff were friendly and kindly, which helped us relax. The breakfasts were amazing: something different every day and each morning was tasty. Our only complaint: we over-ate at breakfast time! They even have cruiser bikes available for guests to get around town! That was spectacular because CB is not a car kinda town! We look forward to returning to CB and to the Elk Mountain Lodge!

First time at Elk Mountain in the center of the Town of Crested Butte was a wonderful experience great friendly staff, excellent accommodations, quiet and all amenities. location in the heart of the walk to all great dining experiences would certainly return and recommend ample parking nice breakfast.

Although I agree withs some of the other reviews on the charm and great location, the two young women who worked on the two days we were there definitely need a course in customer service. My companion and I both had experiences in which the hosts were borderline rude.

This place is right in the heart of downtown Crested Butte. Well maintained and taken care of. The rooms are small however well take Care of and clean! The bed and sheets/comforter were very comfy. Our room had a balcony and had views of all the mountains! Will return!
