The mammoth property's amenities include two hot tubs (one said to be the largest in Colorado), a fitness center, and a commercial-grade kitchen with a wood-fired pizza oven. The main lodge boasts luxurious details like leather-wrapped staircase railings and zebrawood floors. Nearby recreational opportunities include hiking, biking, hunting, and cross-country skiing, and the historic ghost town of Ashcroft and the quintessential high-alpine eatery Pine Creek Cookhouse are neighbors. Offering private quarters, the seven cabins surrounding the main lodge are equally comfortable and part of the $80 million package. Three of the property's other houses, while included in the listing, may also be bought separately. One of them, the Crystal Lake House, sits on 21 acres surrounded by ponds stocked with fish. It features a full-size basketball court, an entertainment hall, and two kitc hens, making it perfect for large parties. The house's two wings are connected by a heated interior bridge. The Ashcroft House and the American Lake House are the two "smaller" structures, but like the others, they are exemplars of rustic Western mountain style. Whether its next owner employs it as a family compound or rents it out for corporate retreats, one thing is certain: Elk Mountain Lodge's history is far from over. .
