Since its inception in 1993, Elk Ridge Lodge has had a “History of Excellence”

After a $15 million dollar Resort expansion in 2008, the spectacular Elk Ridge Resort Lodge, nestled in the woodlands of the Boreal Forest in Northern Saskatchewan, is a breathtaking property, offering first-rate facilities. If you are considering investing in a resort lifestyle, it doesn’t get much better than this.

Elk Ridge Resort is surrounded by wildlife; lush vegetation; ponds and indigenous trees such as Aspen, Tamarack, and Birch, which each of their 9-hole golf courses were named after. Boasting the 27-hole championship golf course; the Resort is elevated to new heights with the addition of the beautiful Salacia Spa, with indoor salt water pool, hot tub, and exercise room. State-of-the-art Conference Facilities; four (4) Restaurants; and accommodations to suit every person’s needs, including: chalet-style cabins; fairway townhouses; residential lots; a villa community; and fully serviced RV lots, are all part of the reason that the Elk Ridge Resort is consistently ranked among the best in Saskatchewan.

A four-season property and host to many high-profile events…

Elk Ridge Resort offers special activities based on the incredible riches that Mother Nature provides with each season, with the Salacia Spa being a strong draw all year-round.

Of Special Note: The Audubon Society has recognized Elk Ridge for its specialized care and management of the surrounding forest; and

Elk Ridge was honored by the Canadian Professional Golf Association (CPGA) with the “Facility of the Year” award, earning it the reputation of a “Golfer’s Paradise”, from professional and recreational golfers alike.

Winter – Hiking, skating, playing shinny (informal hockey), curling, snowshoeing, tobogganing; and snowmobiling are favorite pass-times; not to mention dog-sledding; the kid’s tube hill; and the indoor water slide.

Spring – Hunting, fishing, bird-watching, nature trails and hikes, cycling, swimming, movies, playgrounds, and restaurants.

Summer – Golfing, nearby boating and fishing, swim and beach in Waskesiu, cycling, hunting, birding, movies, playgrounds, restaurants, and nearby theatres. If you’re a night owl, stay up late and be amazed as you stargaze, or watch the magnificent Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights).

Autumn – The gym, swimming pool, and hot tub are always open, as are the nature trails and many outdoor activities. When you’ve had enough physical exercise, treat yourself to an exquisite experience in the spa, and a culinary delight with a prairie twist, or haute cuisine from one of the four restaurants.
