Elkhorn Inn is a great place for train watching. I don't think there is anywhere that you could possibly be as close to the tracks. Dan and Elisse are wonderful hosts. We arrived at the Inn much later than we anticipated, but it was not a problem for them. I called that we would be late and Elisse still offered us dinner. This wasn't a little snack it was a full course dinner. We much appreciated their hospitality. Dan does the cooking and it is wonderful. We had full course dinners all three nights which were terrific. Accommodations are comfortable and inviting.
