I stayed with Elise & Dan for 2 nights in July. I was made to feel very welcome right from the start. The room I had was as close to the track as possible. As a railfan, this was a nice touch! Though if you're a light sleeper, the horn & brake sequel might be a little loud. I enjoyed sitting outside with Dan and chatting over a few beers. The balcony, high speed wifi and ATCS monitor is a great touch. Great fun!

Two wonderful evenings were spent with Elise and Dan Clark. The building dated from the 1920's and had all the charm of that era. The room was inviting, the bed comfortable, and the view of the trains that past carrying coal from the mines that passed across the street. The Clarks treated us more like family than guests showing us around, passing on history of the inn and the area, towns and sites to see in the area. We requested to meet their two dogs and were treated to an experience that rivaled seeing my own pet when we return from work at day. I would have to say the only negative point was the short amount of time we were able to stay.If you love history, a laid back lifestyle, hiking and ATV, this is the place to be.

Room Tip: all the rooms were set up in the same fashion

This hotel is a great place to stay if you are train watching, fishing, hunting or just passing by. The place has many rooms with different views of the area. The hotel is pure classic looking. Fits in with the area. Chef Dan cooks a lot of items, and is recommended to anyone that stays there! I didn't have one problem with my stay back in May of 14. And plan to revisit in the future! A+++++

Room Tip: If you love trains, then request a trackside room, other then that it's your choice.

A friend and I stayed at the Elkhorn Inn in December and it was a fantastic stay. The owners were wonderful, the food was great and the rooms were so nice. We were treated like family. The atmosphere was cozy and warm. We were made to feel we were very special and that our presence was important. I would recommend this inn to everyone. It makes your stay in McDowell County, WV, so much more fun~~

You have to eat at this place even if you don’t stay here. Chef Dan served my wife and me one of the best meals we’ve had, not just during our week long late October jaunt through West Virginia but best meal period. To find this kind of quality four course meal snuggled into southeast West Virginia was a delight. Staying at the inn was unique in itself thanks to Norfolk Southern tracks right next door and the hospitality and insightful experiences that hosts Elisse and Dan bring to their guests. Their affection for the inn (their labor of love and constant work in progress) and West Virginia is apparent. The dinner we were served was beyond any expectation. What a treat. Don’t miss the chance if you are anywhere nearby.

Room Tip: If you like trains stay on the track side, of course.
