As an avid railfan, photographer and dirt bike rider, nothing can beat the Elkhorn Inn for location, comfort, service and upscale dining in Southern West Virginia. i have visited here over 20 times since 2010. Each time I never cease to be amazed at the decor, artwork and the eclectic antique furnishings. However, the proprietors, Dan & Elisse really make the place with their warmth, welcoming personalities and plethora of fascinating life experiences for discussion. The custom "Chef Dan" gourmet dinners are fantastic and capture cuisines from around the world such as Vietnamese, African, Indian, Italian, etc. I look forward to my next trip back.

Dan and Elisse do an amazing job with the Elkhorn Inn! I have stayed multiple times (both the Greenbrier room and the Blue room with a private bath) in rooms that provide amazing views to the railroad tracks across from the Inn. The beds are super comfortable! Dan is also a mean chef!! He makes a great Pho which Elisse pairs with her garden fresh authentic Vietnamese herbs! I also can’t forget the Chicken Piccata that he makes with lemon, capers, a white wine sauce, and serves over noodles! It’s always a treat to be able to stay at the Elkhorn inn!

Elkhorn Inn & Theater brought a literary icon and a most famous Military man to McDowell County recently. If you loved the books of Mark Twain this was your weekend! We breakfasted with Mark Twain both mornings as well as dinner (a delicious dinner of some of Mark Twain's favorite foods) with Mark Twain on Friday. Friday evening and Saturday morning were spent with Mr. Twain giving readings and talking about his life and answering questions. He then excused himself to catch up on his correspondence. Saturday afternoon we had the pleasure of meeting General Thomas J. Jackson (aka Stonewall) who told us about the battles he was asked about. His Aide de Campe, Major Riley joined us for dinner since the General did not partake of the foods that were served - our lushious dinner was not the usual fare for the General. With comfortable rooms, EXCELLENT food, and most informative entertainment, this weekend was an excellent value and informative.

The Elkhorn Inn provides a perfect resting stop to experience all the area attractions: train watching, hiking, trout fishing, ATV riding, and more. Dan and Elisse provide their guests with wildly spectacular service throughout the stay. Dan and Elisse greeted us, showed us our rooms (including beautiful quilts!) and shared a glass of wine and wonderful conversation our first night. Dan showed us where to fly fish along the creek running behind the property, even coming down to point out the perfect spots to catch trout! Elisse and Dan were excellent history-tellers of the area, giving a guided tour of the small museum at the Inn, which also includes local and international art. We took their suggestions on day-trips during out stay and were not disappointed. I cannot recommend Dan and Elisse as hosts more exuberantly - they made our stay a success simply because of their friendliness, conversation skills, and willingness to go the extra mile to make our stay wonderful.

We spent a week exploring and photographing the small towns in West Virginia and heard this was a 'must-stay' when in McDowell County. It was very convenient to where we were photographing and we loved being able to return each evening for a terrific meal by Chef Dan. (Note: Dinner was $55/person and we brought our own wine. Seems a bit pricey) You get a real sense of history and there's a great art collection in the Inn - including several photographs by Builder Levy. Elisse warned us when we arrived that because it is old, we would see dirt and bugs. We did but we really didn't mind because we value personality over perfection. Therefore I gave it a 4.
