Elkhorn, established in 1965, as the Elkhorn Lodge, in Clear Lake, Manitoba has a long and proud history of attentive service and cherished memories to last a lifetime for the many thousands of guests it has played host to. We at Elkhorn Vacations fully appreciate the enormous benefits to our health, our family ties and our mental well being that vacations provide and pride ourselves on providing these benefits to our members, year after year. Just like a consistent good night’s sleep, a much needed, restful weekend break away from the daily routine of life, a week on a gorgeous and inviting tropical beach, skiing through a powder filled bowl, a journey through a treasure filled castle in faraway lands, or a leisurely stroll through shop lined streets, a vacation provides us with the release, relaxation and treasured memories we all need and deserve.

We are there to assist you every step of the way with our helpful, dedicated, and knowledgeable fulltime staff. We will gladly attend to all your needs to ensure you and your loved ones have the vacation of a lifetime, year after year, after year!
