I accidentally found this hotel while looking for someplace in the area to stay, so we could explore the mountains. We had such a wonderful time, the food was excellent our room was wonderful, such a relaxing and comfortable place for couples for sure! Susan & Arthur made our anniversary extra special and we can't wait to go back!

To start off – everything was absolutely perfect! The B&B is situated in the town of Elk Mountian, pop. approximately 200. There are a few houses which testify to the fact that people truly live in the community, but we saw no one and the post office and library (yes, there is one) were closed. The tiny church did not...

Vielen Dank! It was great to meet you both and practice a little of my rusty German. Hope we get the chance to see you again someday, but anyway, glad we were able to make your stay memorable. Chef Susan

We had a great experience staying at the Historic Elk Mountain hotel. The hospitality was superb and the food at the restaurant was of high quality. The room we stayed in was comfortable and very clean. One note - there are no services in the town. No grocery store, no local bar or cafe. Be prepared for the quiet solitude...

Thanks for your kind remarks Haley. There is no bar, although the hotel has a full license so you can have a drink anywhere on the hotel premises. Although we do not have shops, there is a supermarket in Hanna which is about 14 miles away (next door by Wyoming standards) and there is a café, but it is only...

My wife and I were taking an 11 day drive around the country for my 50th birthday. Since I made her spend the night in a TiPi up by Devils Tower, I thought she could use some pampering and spoiling. I booked the Fremont Suite at the Historic Elk Mountain Hotel. The room FAR exceeded our expectations! It was my...

My husband and I are looking into moving to Wyoming in the near future. We chose Elk Mountain for its beautiful scenery. When we got there the weather was not so great and construction was going on around the Hotel. In spite of that, the couple who own the property, Susan and Arthur were fabulous!! The hotel is very historic....

At the Elk Mountain Hotel you are actually treated like a guest, not merely referred to as one. Arthur and Susan are concerned and thoughtful, two words you wouldn’t usually choose for a hotel staff. They looked up road conditions for us (we were snowed in during part of our stay and had restricted travel.) They provided several other things...

What an amazing find. We were driving from UT to CO. It was the dead of Winter and we were tired. I had booked the hotel in advance. What a wonderful surprise. The Inn is first rate. All the appointments and the inn itself has been renovated to premiere status. The biggest surprise though was that the owner is a...

We booked this hotel after being let down by an Airbnb host in Saratoga - so glad we did! This is such a unique and memorable place, packed full of history and character. Our room was incredible, from the ambient birdsong to the fireplace, jacuzzi bath and naughty pics on the walls! The food was fantastic - just wish we...

Historic Elk Mountain Hotel sits in a tiny community, away from the hustle and bustle of town life. It's a lovely looking building inside and out, with a real country lodge feel - helped by the enormous bison head mounted on the wall of the entrance hall! We were greeted by Susan, the owner/chef, who is British. She showed us...

The room was wonderful and had a historic flair. The service was great and the hosts came out and spoke with the guests during dinner. They also gave great recommendations for exploring around the area. Excellent food. The best part was the relaxed atmosphere. You could feel the stress roll away!

Thanks for the kind remarks. We like to make everyone relxed and comfortable and are always delighted to help guests explore our area, it has alot to offer, but like most of Wyoming, the best parts are hidden away. Come back and see us again sometime.
