Great get away from the hustle and bustle. The Inn is not fancy but it is very clean and the owners are extremely attentive. They will make you feel right at home. The breakfast was tasty and filling and if you want seconds they are happy to oblige, you won't leave hungry. You will also find a snack in the early evening, we had fresh baked cookies and access to the kitchen to get an ice cold glass of milk. They also keep a fridge stocked in the common sitting area (same place as breakfast) stocked with water and soda at no additional cost. There isn't much to do in Elsah but you can take a stroll down the street to see beautiful old homes and Grafton isn't much more than 10 minutes away. Grafton has many restuarants and shops.
Great time to see the eagles along the river during winter, we saw 6 and took the Brussels ferry which had no waiting going over or coming back. The Inn also has a small room with collectibles and antiques all reaonably priced. Would we stay here again? You bet!!
