Nicely remodeled hotel keeping to its vintage era. Rooms were clean and comfortable. Susan was warm and welcoming. Stayed for the 5 course Mothers Day meal and it was incredibly delicious. Definitely a master chef. I'm sure we will be finding a reason to return.

My wife and I spent a weekend getaway here to celebrate our anniversary. The accommodations were vintage of the era of the hotel's history but with modern conveniences. Susan and Arthur were very pleasing and thoughtful hosts. The food in the restaurant was outstanding, Susan took the time to chat with us about the various dishes. The service was outstanding;...

It was great to arrive here after the hustle and bustle of Denver. Susan and Arthur were extremely welcoming, even though we had turned up early. This hotel wouldn't be everyone's cup of tea because there is literally nothing else around it apart from wide open space and a few houses. Our room was clean and comfortable. Susan offered us...

Totally enjoyed our stay. We were in the "Evans" room. Perfect accommodations for the theme of our stay. The history of the hotel has been preserved and is very interesting. Probably the best thing that I can say about our stay is this: We arrived at 5pm Friday afternoon, left at 10:30am Saturday, but felt like we had been there...

This is definitely a little hidden gem! The rooms are on the smaller side but very comfortable and beautifully decorated in the folk-Victorian era of its hay-day when it was a stop over for the celebrities and entertainers for which the rooms are named. We had dinner reservations at the in-house restaurant; the gourmet meals, prepared by the co-owner and...

Lovely, quiet, clean room with comfortable bed. We needed a relaxing get away and we got more than we ever expected. The owners were attentive and did everything they could to make our stay enjoyable. The gourmet meals were fabulous. We can't wait to return.

This place is an immaculate, comfortable gem in an unlikely location. Beautifully restored historic property doing double duty as a refuge from notorious I-80 closing winter storms. We pulled up late afternoon on the Sunday after Thanksgiving escaping the frightening whiteout blizzard. Elk Mountain Wyoming. Population 109. Really? Lodging here? Crept into an empty snow covered parking lot and a...

This hotel is more like a historic western hotel bed and gourmet food experience. It is in an extremely quite, off the freeway, hotel built in 1905 but with new modern amenities. The gourmet restaurant offers a full gluten free menu. Chef Susan is a magician with foods. The floors squeak a little but for me, a person who loves...

Hotel is a small hotel off the beaten path, but well worth the trip. Furnished with beautiful Victorian antiques, but very comfortable.

We had originally...
