Reviews

Great Place to stay at Falls Creek

"We (two couples) stayed at Elk this past weekend in Apartment 13. Elk has been beautifully renovated and is in a great location in the heart of the village. Everywhere is a short walk. It's also genuinely ski in ski out. As an added bonus the restaurant downstairs does a great breakfast."

Sensational stay..yet again at Elk

"Third time I have stayed at Elk at Falls and another sensational stay. We stayed in a large 4 bedroom 2 bathroom apartment. The apartments are modern, spotlessly clean and spacious with all essential ammenities. The lodges location provides true ski-in ski-out ability for even our youngest kids in the morning. Great drying room facilities also and amazing view from our apartment. We ate one dinner at Elk restaurant which was awesome also. A nice new touch is a private oversnow vehicle which will pick you up from oversnow terminal with your luggage if you stay 5 or more nights. Thanks Rochelle and Leanne for another great stay"

Best snow trip yet!

"A big thanks to Richelle and the entire team at Elk at Falls for a great stay! With a completely ski in ski out location and fantastic restaurant, Elk really is the best stay on the mountain. The rooms are brand new and have stunning views. The hotel has drying and storage rooms right inside the door so you never have to lug your heavy skis and board too far! By far the most comfortable trip to the snow we’ve ever had. Richelle is so accommodating and we absolutely couldn’t fault her hospitality. Can’t wait to see you all next year!!"

Location, location, location.

"Best location on the mountain. Best service from attentive staff. Ripper restaurant. Breakfast by the fire makes it tempting to stay-in, but the ski-in, ski-out makes it easy to do one or twenty runs. I’m coming back next year!!"
