“Elk River … is the very best place overall that I know for finding just the right mix of incredible people in the very best facilities….golf, tennis. Hiking, fishing, Equestrian riding and horse boarding and a jetport capable of planes from C150s up to Falcon 50 … Everything you could want.”

From the perspective of a first-time guest: 

“Elk River Club is top of the line and is situated in a gorgeous area. The golf course is pristine and stunning. There is a nice park with a playground and a dog park that is right on the water- beautiful! I didn’t get to enjoy all of the amenities that the Elk River Club offers, but I was very impressed with what I did see.”
