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!

We had an amazing experience at this lodge! Edana was the best host ever and we felt welcome from the second we first walked in the door. Our room was small but very nice and the balcony had amazing views, and breakfast exceeded my expectations! Can't wait to go back :)

Historic Elk Mountain Lodge is delightful, cozy, comfortable! The lodge has been well maintained and updated without losing its charm. The beds and bedding are great, the bathrooms updated and sparkling clean. Enjoy old town Crested Butte and it's great restaurants, just a short walk away. The Lodge serves an ample and healthy breakfast every morning. Relax in the main floor living room, or tuck away in one of the cozy reading nooks. WiFi is strong and free. It's just a great place to stay in Crested Butte!

My husband, son and I stayed here in the fall. It was a perfect room for us with three beds. Beds were good, place was quiet and the food was great! Would definitely stay here again and cannot recommend them enough!

This was our second trip to Crested Butte but our first stay at the Elk Mountain Lodge. It was a spacious lodge with quaint dining in a sunroom or around a large, common dining room table. The breakfasts each morning were delicious. Homemade granola, bagels, yogurt, and fresh fruit for the light eaters accompanied with either blueberry pancakes, egg casseroles, potatoes, sausage, bacon, and bread pudding...different every day! Orange juice, teas, and coffee made it complete. We really enjoyed the quiet alcoves throughout the inn. I even got to play their baby grand piano, which was a real treat. Our room was on the third floor( elevators) and had a beautiful view from our balcony of the mountain. The lodge is only two blocks from the main drag, Elk Avenue. We walked everywhere we wanted to go or took the free bus transportation.

We have stayed here a number of times over the years, and the Elk Mtn Lodge just keeps getting better. Impeccably maintained. Delicious breakfasts. Phenomenal hot tub. Warm and helpful staff. Fabulous location (in town, but just two blocks to the free ski shuttle bus). Comfy bed and pillows. Great common space for happy hour get-togethers with old and new friends.

We spent three nights at the Elk Mountain Lodge in January. It's a wonderful place to stay when you're skiing! The rooms are clean and nicely decorated; the staff is friendly and helpful; and the breakfasts are delicious. We will definitely stay here again!

Got there late, Edana (love that name) was really helpful. Edana even went out side with me to make sure the truck and Sno-Cat I was pulling were parked legally, this was above and beyond! This was my 3rd stay with Elk Mountain, stayed on the 3rd floor this time, #319 was a great room. Great breakfast as usual. This is my go-to place for Crested Butte.
