Encompassing 226 +/- acres of pristine Colorado woodlands and nestled in the heart of the Uncompahgre National Forest, is the breath-taking Elk Mountain Resort. An all-inclusive four-season retreat, Elk Mountain boasts a 19,384 SF lodge, 19 cottages (2,035 SF, 3-bed/3-bath) and twenty-one luxury suites (416 SF per suite). Amenities are outstanding with a sauna, pickle ball court, tennis facility, three skeet ranges, snowmobile/ATV park, fishing lake, equestrian center, and a quaint mountain chapel. Administrative/maintenance infrastructure is likewise expansive, including: a machine shop, wood shop, office/administration space, a large wine cellar, equipment storage, and water/sewer treatment centers. Surrounded by a pristine forest and built upon a no-expenses-spared philosophy, Elk Mountain Resort is a rose amidst pine trees!  



Elk Mountain is located on the Uncompahgre Plateau, between Montrose and Telluride, Colorado. This expansive feature covers 1.5MM acres, from Unaweep Canyon in the north to the San Juan Mountains in the south. This has been a dream location for outdoorsmen for generations. Much of the plateau is public land, which supports a substantial hunting, fishing, hiking, and trail-riding community. In recent decades, the surrounding towns of Telluride, Ridgway, and Montrose have slowly built up a thriving tourism economy. The fruits of this economy being manifest from the ski slopes in Telluride, to fine dining in Ridgway, and a bustling FBO at Montrose Regional Airport.  Equidistant from each of these towns, Elk Mountain ranch tucked into the heart of western Colorado’s recreation scene. For proof, you need only look at the exclusive, members-only, Jack Nicholas golf course a half a mile down the road!



At the center of Elk Mountain Resort lies the elegantly rustic Main Lodge, which is connected to 21 luxury lodge suites by heated walkways. The great room of the main lodge has an inviting 2-story main lobby styled as a 19th century lodge. It has been characterized with log beam architecture featuring a magnificent 2-sided stone fireplace. This area was designed to be the perfect location to relax and greet guests.

Just off the great room is the main bar and dining area, which provides an elegant setting for 80 diners with a rustic yet refined ambience. Located in the main dining area is a huge, 4-sided stone fireplace that seamlessly connects the dining area to the heated stone patio overlooking the lake. A large commercial kitchen services the dining area.

In addition to vacation housing, the main lodge was also designed to host business retreats through multiple meeting facilities including: two large corporate meeting rooms, two boardrooms and a large patio area. Located on the upper level of the lodge is a cocktail bar, lounge and cigar bar that provides an area to conduct business, relax, and enjoy the beautiful views. The private cigar bar hosts an entire wall of climate-controlled personal humidors and is suitable for cocktail night, wine tasting, private receptions or simply a round of cards and billiards.



Just up from the main lodge is the tactical shooting facility that was designed as an enjoyable and safe place to shoot with realistic settings for firearms training. The tactical shooting facility was created to bring the worlds of Recreational Shooting and Progressive Training together in one location. The goal of the facility was to satisfy a diverse client base by providing unique shooting experiences for all skill levels.
