Once you enter our Elk Hollow getaway you will want to return. Our two bedroom, two bath, cabin is comfortably and sylishly decorated with all the comforts of home. The wrap-around deck is situated among towering trees, and spectacular mountain views. Elk Hollow is located only a few miles from the Village of Cloudcroft, and Ski Cloudcroft. The cabin sits on several lots allowing you plenty of space to watch the abundant wildlife up close. At dawn and dusk, there is a good chance you'll see elk grazing in the hollow beside, and below our cabin.

|ABOUT OUR COMMUNITY AND SNOW PREPARATION
Elk Hollow is located in a private community where the roads are maintained year round. Our community has no steep hills, so driving and walking is a pleasure. It is advisable, however, to use a four-wheel drive vehicle or chains during winter months. If it is not snowing when you get there, it may be snowing when you leave, so you must be prepared. We could get upward of a foot of snow before the plow gets there. If you do not have chains, I can tell you where you can order them, and they will arrive overnight if the order is placed before 4pm (MST). If ordered on Friday, they won't arrive until the following Tuesday.
There is abundant wildlife in the area, especially elk. A variety of birds, and several varieties of hummingbirds make their home in the Southern Rocky Mountains from April through mid-September.
There is a pond just down the road from the cabin where you can feed the fish. At last count there were about eighteen fish. You will find them hungry for bread, rolls, etc., any time of the day. There is a wonderful walking trail just past the pond. The trail wanders through the Lincoln National Forest for several miles.
