This resort is absolutely amazing. The cabin I stayed in had all the comforts of home, oh yeah, and a killer view! It was like owning a well-appointed log cabin. The property is a true gem as well. Private, swimmable beach, hiking trail, great nooks and crannies to lounge in, pick your favorite --adirondack chair or beach towel --plus a full service bar and restaurant. You'd be forgiven for having low expectations for quality seeing how Elkins is is dead center in practically wilderness, but the staff manage to pull off some damn-good breakfast, lunch, and dinner! This place has been around going on a century because of the property, the amenities, and fostering a culture of excellence! Thank you, Elkins!
After working as a wedding photographer in the Spokane/CDA area for several years, I *finally* got the chance to shoot up at Elkins Resort, and let me tell you. I did NOT want to leave. I could work here every single weekend with no complains. The scenery is second to none, the food is ahMAzing (I still dream about that dinner), and the North Idaho vibes are perfect for that laid-back-but-formal wedding.
If you are considering getting married at Elkins Resort, DO IT. And then hire me to do your photography, because I absolutely *adore* the place.
Elkins Resort was just perfect for us. The resort is so beautiful. The rooms have super comfy beds and have everything you need for the perfect stay. The staff is so friendly and do everything to meet the needs of its clients. Then the food is so good from snacks to dinner. Top chef does fantastic menu options. We were there for a family wedding and they made sure everything was set up just as we wanted. I can't thank the staff enough for making this trip one of the best we have had.
I live at the lake part time and have been going to Elkins since I was born. The service, food and boating facilities are superior. I have had a wedding there, seen three generations of families there and never have a bad experience there. I knew the Elkins and the current owners are carrying on the legacy of the resort in a very high class fashion. It is beautiful and rustic on the outside but full service and professional in every other sense.
I have had a boat slip there for 6 years and used their cabin s and restaurant. Always great friendly service . Always a great value
Love Elkins - "Same Time Next Year" Love Affair Just such a TREAT! Thank you, Elkins. A tradition we wouldn't miss. SEE YOU NEXT YEAR! We were staying at Canoe Point (Huckleberry Bay) and would come over once a week to take care of our cousins' big cabin..just a treat to pop in for breakfast (which was consistently excellent) - or post cleaning huckleberry cocktails. Hamburger was great. BRING BACK IDAHO NACHOS!!! We so look forward to having them!
No matter what season you visit, the views and grounds are spectacular! The staff are phenomenal and treat you like royalty and at the same time like family! The cabins are amazing, we’ve stayed in many different ones and it’s always perfect! The restaurant and bar are beyond incredible, the food is five-star perfection and the drinks are made with love and expert craftsmanship! Tammara, Facebook
Our experience at Elkins Resort was everything we hoped it would be and more! They thought of all the little details, and the accommodations were perfect- clean, updated, and everything in working order. The cabin was cozy, comfortable, and very nice. The entire property is so beautiful, and they did a great job decorating for the Holidays to make it even more welcoming. We’ll be back for sure! Betsy, Google
What a fun spot for a wedding, family reunion, or romantic weekend. The location is perfect. The lake is pristine and the abundance of Adirondack chairs at the water’s edge beckons a nice long sit. The bar is quaint and the service was excellent. Lori, Google
My husband and I just spent 4 days at Elkins Resort. This is our 4th staying here. We stayed in Cabin #3 with a wood-burning fireplace. The cabin was so nice and roomy, great bed, shower, nice kitchen. We snowshoed at Hannah Flats and also at Priest Lame Golf course, perfect and beautiful, quiet. We also walked at sunset on the lakeside of the resort, also beautiful. There was a lot of snow everywhere and extremely gorgeous. Thank You, Elkins Resort for a nice stay. We were here during the week when the restaurant is closed in winter. concertina61, Tripadvisor
We got married there in early May! The venue and particularly the staff were fantastic. The staff was on point, helpful, motivated, and self-starters. The venue itself was delightful, we had the ceremony outside overlooking priest lake and the snow-capped Selkirk mountains. The catering was delicious for the reception dinner, the rehearsal dinner, breakfast, and lunch. If you haven’t visited Priest Lake, make Elkins your home base to explore. I can’t recommend it enough. Alexander, Google
