“Elk Mountain Lodge”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 August 2012

A fun place to stay, nice to get out of commercial properties. The areas of Crested Butte and Mt. Crested Butte are beautiful. The rooms are on the small side, but clean and quiet. If you are a flatlander (like us Michiganders) stay on the 2nd or 1st floor. If you want a good cardio workout stay on the 3rd...not because the building is so high but because the altitude is!! Good breakfasts. This was our second stay at Elk Lodge. I would stay here again.

Room Tip: Ask for 2nd floor.

There were lots of things we liked about this place - the free wifi, bikes they let us use to go around town, ice available, the owner/manager was very available, and an awesome location in the heart of this pretty town. The parking is very limited (but we were lucky), the breakfast was a bit uninspired (although the granola was homemade and delicious), and the rooms are kind of small and could use some updating. There was a little hitch as to whether they were going to charge us twice - we had pre-paid - but the manager took care of it. Would I recommend it to others in Crested Butte? Yes.

Plenty of comfort. Quiet, friendly, well-tended and well-suited decor. We biked downhill, hiked, swam, kayaked, biked uphill, fished and biked. We listened to local mountain-rock Coreshot on main street. We ate at all the best restaurants. Secret Stash, Slogars, Ryce, Maxwells, Teocali Tamale ... Each night we returned with that good-to-be-home feeling, walking the short 2 blocks from main street back to the Lodge. A dependable place. Perfectly located. 7 days and not long enough. Until next year.
(Note- the "Fitness Center" rating is for everything outside, and uphill). The "Swimming Pool" rating was for Meridian Lake, and not for the feint of heart.)

My wife and I enjoyed a great stay last week at Elk Mountain Lodge in Crested Butte. We love coming to Colorado, but had never stayed in that part of the state. The lodge was recommended by a business friend. We trusted in his suggestion and don't regret. An historic building two blocks from the main street. Loved the '60's bikes out front free for use around town. Great breakfast included in room cost. Lodge has homey feel, especially the great room. Front porch and breakfast is a great place to meet other lodgers. We will return!

Room Tip: third floor rooms have great views, but even lugging luggage up to 2nd floor is a tough climb!

Our expectations were high before we arrived due to the reviews here and elsewhere. My wife and I were not disappointed. In fact, I would venture to say that this may be one of the best Hotel/ B&B's we have ever experienced. The entire staff made us feel at home throughout our 4-night stay. It was like visiting relatives or old friends during the holidays. Great location in Crested Butte, excellent breakfast, homemade cookies with coffee and tea in the afternoon and evening. Our 3rd floor balcony room had a beautiful view. We highly recommend Elk Mountain Lodge to anyone wishing to visit Crested Butte.

Room Tip: Most 3rd floor rooms have a balcony and great view of Mt. Crested Butte.
