Elk River Guest Ranch

Horseback ride, fish, mountain bike, cross country ski or meander on foot through grand aspen groves and lodge pole pine forests. Rest on a sun-baked rock and listen to the rush of the river, the song of the mountain finch or the bugle of a bull elk. Watch the sun slip behind the mountains making way for the brilliant glory of the starlit sky.

Ideally located just 21 miles North of Steamboat Springs, Colorado, but surrounded by millions of acres of pristine forest, this intimate guest ranch presents everything for a fun and affordable getaway. The Elk River Guest Ranch is an enchanting mountain retreat that offers both solitude and adventure.
We cater to those who want to indulge in a multitude of activities or just relax. The Elk River Guest Ranch is an exquisite setting for weddings, family reunions, business retreats, or private parties. Summer and Winter rates provide comfortable lodging, delicious meals and friendly service.
