Historic Luxury In Classic Crested Butte!

Built in 1919 as a miner’s hotel, the Elk Mountain Lodge combines old-world elegance and modern conveniences just blocks away from famous Elk Avenue and the world-class recreation of Crested Butte! After a day on the cool slopes of nearby Mt. Crested Butte Ski Area or kayaking on the Taylor River, return to the lodge for a drink at the The Lodge Bar, a relaxing soak in the hot tub, and peaceful night in your cozy room featuring splendid mountain views. Then, wake up to a breakfast of the lodge's famous homemade granola, peruse the library, and take advantage of discounted lift tickets for another day on the slopes!


Try salmon or trout fishing in the abundant East River, Slate River, Gunnison River, Blue Mesa Reservoir, or Taylor River!


Originally serving as a hotel and boardinghouse for miners working for the Colorado Fuel and Iron Company in 1919, the building was constructed using cinderblocks made from the mine slag piles. At one point, the hotel contained the only public telephone in Crested Butte!


World-class alpine skiing, snowboarding, and nordic skiing are just minutes away at the Crested Butte Mountain Resort, Crested Butte Nordic Center, and the Monarch Ski Area!
