Rejuvenate yourself ’somewhere in time‘ and experience the serene tranquility that only Mother Nature can inspire. Come enjoy the perfect, Elkhorn Valley getaway, surrounded by the scenic splendor of Cascade Mountains and "ancient" forest where flora and fauna abound.

Not far from the inn, guests can view towering 800+ year old trees, still growing within Opal Creek Wilderness Area. Golfers can enjoy challenging play at Elkhorn Golf Course less than one mile away. Enjoy a delicious "homemade" breakfast served with a breathtaking view from the outside deck or inside where you can feel the warmth of a glowing fire. Later, a variety of small town restaurants and shops are available within a short 3-4 mile drive from the inn over scenic Gates Hill.Watch our video on YouTube, type in elkhorn valley inn bed and breakfast.

Found a new gem - definitely coming back :)

Family-owned and operated, with family pride. I was looking for a retreat space, and this was perfect. This lovely spot is tucked away in a gorgeous, quiet area, with trails and campgrounds (and a golf course) nearby. It is affordable, I could bring my dog, the service (and home-cooked meals) were fantastic, above and beyond. The facilities are absolutely charming and comfortable. Will definitely come back in the future - excited I've found a go-to get-away!

My husband and I spent our one year anniversary at Elkhorn and we have rarely been so impressed. We only stay and Bed and Breakfast's, never hotels so we have a lot of experience of good and bad B&B's and this one is by far my favorite! I am a very picky eater and sleeper but I do not have one complaint, the food was fresh and amazing and the bed was outstanding. If you are looking for breath-taking views, incredibly quiet, awesome innkeepers, the best bacon have found it with Elkhorn!

one night stay.

We were greeted with a smile and warmth from both Robin and Larry. They made us feel right at home. Very quite area and beautiful views. Well worth the drive to the the place. Breakfast was served when you wanted and on time.

Absolutely wonderful. One night was entirely too short!

My husband and I stayed here and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. I have so many food allergies I wasn't sure whether I'd be able to eat much of the breakfast. But Robin and Larry were enthusiastically accommodating, serving us absolutely delicious gluten free pancakes with fresh blueberries, flax milk and a variety of other hypoallergenic foods. We were served out on the back deck next to a crackling fire, with a stunning view of the forested mountains and the soothing sound of the creek down below. It was absolutely lovely. We felt so welcomed and pampered in every way by both of them. It's obvious that they really enjoy hosting their guests. We stayed in "Robin's Nest," a romantic room with a timbered ceiling, gas fireplace, private bath, and a deck with an equally stunning view of mountains, forest, and a meadow where the deer were grazing early in the morning. There is a lovely little common area that we didn't have time to explore, but it's like a cozy library with a gas fireplace, comfy chairs, lots of books, DVD's, games and a computer. There is also a private little cottage that was so romantic... Next time. We can't say enough about this place. We will definitely be back!
