If you're looking for an authentic Rocky Mountain experience, to bring your friends and family together and have memorable, meaningful interaction, in a historic ranch with privacy, world class skiing close by and dry fly fishing at your doorstep, abundant wildlife, and all the comforts of home or spa, you've found it. Built in 1906, Elk River Lodge is custom furnished with 10 luxurious beds, a magazine quality kitchen, hot tub, New outdoor cedar barrel Sauna!, outdoor grill, and views from every room. The hayloft in the barn is the ultimate place to listen to music and play games. It even has a 17 foot wide projector screen to watch your favorite movies with surround sound! Ideal for family gatherings, world class skiing and dry fly fishing, horseback riding, wildlife viewing, snow mobiling, bike riding, golfing, even bob sledding...the lodge feels as though its in a national park that's all yours! Herds of elk and deer graze across the meadows each day. The property is bordered by the Elk River offering miles of world class dry fly fishing in total privacy and a beautiful spring creek flows next to the lodge. Many other streams full of trout are close by.
We run an authentic working ranch that boards horses and are ideally set up for Bed and Bale as well! Bring your fly rods or skis, camera, hiking boots and even your horses!
There's a large wood stove in the great room with plenty of cut firewood at your disposal, a foosball table and antique style record player with a nice collection of old vinyls, a hidden TV with a collection of movies, and a fire pit outside for roasting marshmallows while listening to the elk bugle.
The lodge is ideally located to take day trips to the surrounding national parks including Banff, Waterton and Glacier, as well as the provincial parks including Elk Lakes and Height of the Rockies.
We can arrange Grizzly bear viewing and horseback flyfishing trips to alpine lakes and pristine tributaries that seldom get fished, in valleys with no roads...along with mountain lion, wolf and linx hunting for the more adventurous...
We manage the property as a sanctuary for wildlife which creates the ideal setting to restore the soul and the lodge is ideal to comfort the body.
Elk River Lodge provides the ultimate way to experience the splendor of the Canadian Rockies, the way Montana used to be 100 years ago, only better.
