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 comfort 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.

Best place ever. Horse Holiday! Look no further! by Donna G. 08/05/2019
Myself and 5 friends brought our own horses and stayed 4 nights and rode out from the ranch each day . We have done a girls horse vacation like this for over 20 years and I have got to say ......this is the best accommodations for ourselves and the horses we have ever had. The house is awesome , so much room , beautiful, comfortable and equipped with everything you would ever need . The horse accommodations are fantastic, separate paddocks for our horses , they are safe , clean and convenient. The riding from the ranch is so amazing , you can ride for hours , and days ,beautiful open fields , trails through the forest and plenty of riding along the river . Gorgeous!!!!!!! The care takers Bill and Ty are over the top wonderful ! Can’t say enough good about them !!!! And Jason the owner is so great to deal with ! Beautiful house , amazing property , A one of a kind rental and honestly cannot say enough good things about the whole place , we will be back !
Authentic Lodge Vacation by Robert O. 07/13/2019
Our family of twelve (4 families) recently spent a fantastic week of fun and relaxation at this great retreat in the Canadian Rockies. The lodge has an authentic rustic decor to fit the surrounding mountain setting but with lots of modern updates. The furnishing and cabinets are beautifully hand crafted with beautiful wildlife drawings on the front. It has everything you need. Plenty of space to hang out and a huge dining table. We made use of the hot tub and sauna. Eating s’mores at the outdoor fire pit was a big hit with the kids especially at sunset. The sunrise and sunsets over the mountain are breathtaking. There is also the barn with a huge theatre sized tv screen. Everywhere you look you can see the pride in all the details to make this the perfect mountain retreat. Being from Massachusetts this lodge filled all our wants and wishes with sighting of some wildlife. Lots of places to explore on the property with the Elk River running at the back of the lodge and things to do close by. It was hard to leave. Thanks also to Bill for all his help and recommendations. A five star + experience.Thank you Jason for sharing this beautiful place.
Heaven on Earth for this South Ga bunch by Niel S. 07/05/2019
Words cannot describe the beauty we experienced. When we drove up to the lodge we were greeted by Elk in the yard. We actually saw them everyday while we were there. When we slept we had the windows open so we could fall asleep to the sound of the creek flowing in the back yard. Fishing the Elk river that borders the property was incredible!! Much thanks to Bill also for all he did he topped the trip off especially for my granddaughter. The lodge was roomy, cozy, and beautiful. Thank you Jason for sharing your home with us. God willing we will definitely be back!
