This is a charming hotel. The owners are professional, polite and well organized. The rooms are very comfortable. Bathrooms are modern and clean. I enjoyed myself and hope to stay there again in the future.

We spent our 8th anniversary getaway in July. Dinner was phenomenal! The hotel is beautifully decorated and very well kept. The rooms are luxurious and comfortable. The Havers' were generous in making us feel welcomed and at home. It was kind of a time travel back to an earlier age of care-free luxury. We enjoyed the quiet time away from...

We had the best time in this charming hotel. Every attention to details was paid for our girls weekend in June and we couldn't be happier. The hoteliers are experts at making you feel very welcome and he place is clean and well kept and beautifully decorated. A throw back to the past, you can imagine Marshall Dillon walking through...

Great place to relax, the restaurant was wonderful, with many delicious gluten-free options. Well worth the effort to get there. This was our first stay, but certainly will not be our last. Thanks for a great stay.

Quiet, intimate place. Rooms are small, but lovely "parlor" and sitting areas on the first floor and great porches, gazebo and balcony. Incredible restaurant and service. We truly enjoyed our weekend there. Only a little over a 2 hour drive from Casper. We will definitely be returning.

My wife and I spent 1 night at this charming hotel in Elk Mountain. This was a very remote place and a great place to just unwind and relax from the big city stress. The hotel was clean and comfortable. I was a little concerned that it didn't have A/C as it was a hot day but the evening cooled...

This was my fourth stay at the Elk Mountain Hotel. Hands down the best kept secret in Wyoming. I am a native and between the ambiance, the comfy beds and Susan's special touch in the dining room, every stay has met or exceeded my expectations. Step back in time and enjoy the historical lifestyle and elegance at the Elk Mountain...

My husband and I stayed for one night at this historical hotel in Elk Mountain. Prepare to be delightfully surprised and made to feel at home by owners Arthur and Susan. Although a little out of the way ( which adds to this lovely find) you will be charmed with this beautifully restored hotel and it's ghost stories. Make sure...

Restoration and modernization have been mixed in just the right proportions at this 109 year old hotel. Add in meals from the Cordon Bleau trained chef/owner and you've got a unique and wonderful experience. Sitting in my room or on the balcony or walking around the grounds or Elk Mountain's "downtown" it was easy to forget that I-80 was just...

We toured Wyoming staying at hotels, motels and log cabins. Elk Mountain Hotel was not the standard boring hotel. We picked it because it looked different and we were not disappointed. It is a lovely, historic hotel in a great location, but provides very comfortable accommodation - you do not have to put up with any historic discomforts!.
