Are you an avid birder? Do you have a 4-wheel-drive vehicle? Not afraid of miles of bumpy dirt roads, an isolated location, and more than a few mosquitoes in the region? Then Elk Lake Resort is perfect for you! It's a simple, small, scrupulously clean, rustic, cozy place on the shores of a narrow, quiet mountain lake... and, boy, does it feature really GREAT food and even really great sheets! (Yes, their sheets are super-high-thread-count and so smooth to the touch, and their pillows are puffy and superb.) The three of us stayed in Cabin One, a 2 bedroom, 1 bath rustic place that was perfect for our needs. The shower was good and HOT with excellent water pressure. The beds were perfect with mattresses fitted with a 'temper'-type covering. Smoke alarms and wall heaters in each bedroom. The only thing we'd change about Cabin One was to provide a much bigger wastebasket (!) Owner-Managers Jake and Laurel DeLong are simply superb... so friendly and helpful and accommodating... and the food was out of this world --- huge portions, so fresh and good. We strongly recommend that you only travel in a 4x4 vehicle to Elk Lake Resort and the nearby Red Rock Lakes National Wildlife Refuge --- you'll be glad you did...
