Step into the lobby of the Elk Mountain Lodge and encounter a slower pace of life and extraordinary attention to detail. Built in 1919 as a boardinghouse for miners, this historic hotel has been painstakingly renovated. The rooms are full of light, and the full-service bar is a deep, rich walnut. There's a library and a baby grand piano on which jazz is played every Friday night. An enhanced Continental breakfast is served in a cheerfully trimmed breakfast nook and includes
made-to-order lattes and cappuccinos.
