We chose the Elk River Inn for the location of our wedding. It was an outstanding location for the ceremony and the reception. The owners Mary and Gil have a great wedding package deal there. The staff was great and made the wedding a fine event. For our wedding we had a scenic background, a great reception dinner and lodging... More

I stayed in one of the 5 rooms with private bath located in the Inn. There are other accommodations (5 rooms with shared bath) for more of a group setting located in... More

They have difference types of "nights" reflected in their meal specials. Very nice diversity in the menu. Super environment - rustic elegant. Sometimes an excellent local group plays "Elk River Ramblers". Fabulous chef and hosts are welcoming and friendly.

I used their website to make reservations since this is a seasonal restaurant & the site said they were serving sat July 4th. But I could not get them on the phone to confirm& drove by twice & it looked like their drive was washed out due to the heavy rains, so we ate up in Snowshoe& drove back to... More

3 men shared a cabin with great clean economical accommodations. The place was quiet and clean. There was direct TV, WIFI and a gas pot belly stove that made the place quite toasty. Lots of hot water and a friendly staff.

The restaurant at Elk River never disappoints. On Thursdays there is live music which just makes the whole evening more special. They had an Italian 3-course special which was stuffed cremini mushrooms, seafood pasta and amaretto cheesecake. It looked delicious. Husband had green shrimp and pasta and he practically licked the plate. Boring old me had the trout, I always... More

We've made this an annual tradition, couple of times each ski season, since before 2005. Went last night, made reservations night before, called to give them heads up we were running late, approx. 15 minutes, and told no problem. No problem, seated as soon as we arrived, it was a busy night, restaurant full, didn't have to wait long for... More

I spent 2 winters living/working at Snowshoe. Without a doubt, I can say the best restaurant in the area is Elk River. The owners are great, the servers are wonderful, the chef is amazing. Excellent quality food. Have the trout dip, the mussels, locally raised chicken or pork, stuffed trout, or the specials. (Oh, the specials!) Great for a date... More

In October Elk River Inn is only open on certain weekend nights. We chose to visit during their Caribbean Dinner Special. The service was spot on with our wait staff being there for our every want and need without hovering. The food had excellent flavor and was well presented. I cannot say enough good things about our meal that evening.... More

The food here was the highest quality food that I have eaten in a long time. From the appetizers to the dessert, I couldn't have asked for anything better. The atmosphere was terrific with great service. However, it is quite expensive.
