Spread out across 275? acres of lush forest on the Uncompahgre Plateau lies Elk Mountain Resort. The luxurious resort, completed in 2006, was a four-season destination consisting of a main lodge that boasts just under 20,000 square feet of elegant yet rustic accommodations. Just off the large front patio of the lodge is a private fishing lake and attached to the back of the lodge via heated walkways are 21 luxury lodge suites designed for comfort. If it?s a more private setting you want there are 18, 2,400 square foot, 2-story, 3 bed/3 bath cottages spread throughout the pine and aspen forest. Activities at Elk Mountain Resort range from the simplicity of horseback riding, fishing, or enjoying a glass of wine in the Wine Shaft to the excitement of tactical training in the 15,500 square foot indoor shooting facility. If it?s a bit of exercise or relaxation that you are looking for, Elk Mountain Resort has it all. These features include: Wellness Center, dry sauna, tennis and paddle ball courts, rock climbing monolith, high ropes course with zip line, fitness and mountain biking trails. If all of that doesn?t excite you then try riding ATVs and snowmobiles in the terrain park or a round of paintball in the forest. From the majestic views of the San Juan Mountains to the solitude of the surrounding national forest…the luxury of Elk Mountain Resort is truly a work of art.
