The cabin was perfect. We were there for our son's wedding and both families and the wedding party stayed. Not only did we have our rehearsal dinner in the cabin, but also a New Year's Eve Party! The bedroom were very spacious and made it easy to get away for some privacy if needed. The staff was very accommodating. A+

We had an amazing time at the Big Elk Lodge. Working with Barbara was the best experience. She made it possible and such a pleasure to book the cabin. Our experience lead us as a group to book this cabin yearly for our retreat. The cabin is so spacious, beautiful and clean. It was everything that we wanted and needed. Thank you Barbara for making that possible.

We were upgraded to a bigger cabin due to our original cabin having structural issues. Everyone in my party enjoyed there stay. We stayed in the Mountain top retreat for one night and then moved to the Elk lodge for three days and everything was perfect our whole stay.

We stayed in BIG Elk Lodge for a family reunion. Everyone loved this cabin and it's hard to find a cabin that 45 people all love. We have already booked a cabin for next year's reunion.
