I just got back from a two night stay with Dan and Elysse at the Elkhorn Inn. What a great place to stay at...especially if you are a rail fan. The Norfolk Southern line is right across the street from the Inn and Dan and Elysse have a viewing platform set up complete with a rail scanner. If you like watching and photographing trains, I cannot think of a better place to be at.
Even more impressive than the Inn itself is the hospitality afforded by Dan and Elysse. I literally spent hours speaking to each of them about a wide and diverse array of topics (Israeli art, Vietman, the Southern West Virginia economy, restoration of the inn, Hurricane Katrina, etc.) and learned so much! I could have spent tons more time listening to them. They are so warm and inviting and make you feel so welcome in their home, And so too are their two dogs and two cats!
If you want to get away from it all and spend time in a great inn with two wonderful hosts, by all means try the Elkhorn Inn. You will not be disappointed.
