“We'll be back!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 12, 2013

I found this place when Snowshoe only had expensive three bedroom condos available. My husband, son and I just needed an affordable room for a quick ski trip. I wasn't sure what to expect, but I was pleasantly surprised. We stayed in room 7 in the Inn. The beds were very comfortable and there were plenty of comfy pillows. The room was cute and clean. Breakfast (included) was delicious and filling, perfect for a day on the slopes. The only bummer was that the hot tub was out of order. We will definitely return!

We have stayed at Elk River many times, and are never disappointed. The prices are extremely reasonable - for only an extra 20 minute drive up the mountain to Snowshoe, you can save a ton of money for a weekend stay.
We originally were referred to the place by some locals, and on top of everything you can get a wonderful dinner at their restaurant. They have rooms enough to accomodate a couple or a group of singles, and the breakfast is always good with a few options.
As an added bonus, weather dependent, you can get some cross country skiing in, they have rentals right on their property and trails from their back door. Really like staying here ;o)
They also have cabins for other size groups.

Room Tip: Mary's Birdhouse is a cute little cabin as well...

We needed a place to stay in the area of Cass. ERI provides a nice place to stay and dine all in one spot. The dinner in the dining room was very good food but quite pricy. But given the fact that it must cost more to get food delivered to Slatyfork, I can understand the prices. Breakfast was good as well. I can not imagine a better place to stay and dine in this area.
Dont expect to be waited on here as a B&B guest. They leave you on your own to roam around, rest, relax, have a beer, walk the trails and play cards in one of the lounges. The rooms are clean but need some touch up. The bed was fine and never expected a TV in the room up here. But there was! The drive over to Cass was lovely. Allow extra time though as the road is winding.

Room Tip: Take a room that does not face the road if you have the windows open at night.

My wife and I recently stayed 2 nights at the Inn and found the rooms very clean, the peace and quiet relaxing and the staff very friendly. It is a small, family run business nestled in one of the prettiest parts of WV. There are many attractions nearby, such as Snowshoe ski resort, Cass Railroad, Greenbank Observatory and great trout fishing. I saved the best for last! Their restaurant is one of our favorites, not only in WV, but anywhere! Their chef is renowned and he's a very young man who is very creative! The food can rival any 5 star restaurant. As an added bonus, if you dine on Thursday nights, the Elk River Ramblers( Guitar, mandelin and fiddle) will entertain you with great folk, Irish and bluegrass music. Highly recommend the Inn, Restaurant and the area!

Sit, stay, and enjoy! There is no rush here. Gives the feeling of a manhattan/Chicagoan restaurant in the woods of West Virginia.

The chef has truly created a West Virginia inspired menu with a high class spin. Tastefully combined local produce and meat (farm to table at its best if you ask me) with a very modern element to backwoods southern food. The Mac and cheese is to die for. One qualm: the trout was amazing but would have been just that much better if it was deboned. Wine selection is satisfactory but clearly chosen with purpose for food pairing. Worth every penny.

Atmosphere is cozy cozy cozy. In a farm house beside a creek (almost an over the river and thru the woods senario!). Backyard full of butterflies, flowers, and a fresh garden. Would be a lovely spot for a small romantic wedding. About 5-7 miles from the base of snowshoe mountain so it keeps its quaint charm away from the large skiing/biking hoards. But for those that make the trip off the mountain you won't be disappointed.

Looking forward to bringing my girlfriends here on my next trip!

This was a great little bed & breakfast which ran me about $140/night including a great breakfast. The room was certainly on the small side and a bit dated but was very comfortable and had quite a bit of character. They have one of the best restaurants for dinner in the area as well. The property was beautiful and only took about 10 minutes to get to Snowshoe for some skiing. I'd certainly stay here again.

My family and I stayed at the Inn while on a skiing trip to Snowshoe. The winter price of $95 for the 3 of us provided a cozy room with 2 double beds plus a twin bed and a full breakfast each morning. The drive was about 20 min. up to skiing.
