A Very Happy Stay with Friends

5 on November 13, 2013

I loved my stay at the Inn. I found my hosts very charming and willing to make my stay a pleasurable one. I loved the feeling of the rooms being homey and not hotel like. I have some dietary restrictions and my hosts were very accommodating to my diet. I would definitely recommend this Inn to my friends and family. Its not often you can find a five star quality food while rail fanning but this Inn does it well.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you so much for your wonderful review! We are delighted you enjoyed your stay at the Inn and Chef Dan's dinners! Hope to welcome you back to the Inn soon!

Thank you for a wonderful stay!

We had the pleasure of staying with Dan and Elisse for our thirtyfirst wedding anniversary. They are very thoughtful and and wonderful hosts quick to satisfy any need you might have. The inn is amazing with art and sculpture at every corner. While we did not get to enjoy any of Dan's gourmet cooking (we usually were out late exploring) getting to know Dan I am positive it would be delicious! Their breakfasts were ideal and a great way to start the day. We especially enjoyed our many conversations with Dan, Elisse and their close friend Judy. Being railfans our initial draw to the Inn was the trains. What a show! We were serenaded day and night with their sounds. What else can I say? A grand old building, wonderful hosts, good food and trains. It is the perfect combination. We will be back! Thank you Dan, Elisse and Judy for a fantastic weekend. Terry and Bunny

Innkeeper Response

Had the pleasure of staying here for the "Dinner in the Dining Car" Weekend with Railroad Historian & Author James D. Porterfield. Such an interesting evening with a delicious dinner prepared by Chef Dan with comments from Jim Porterfield on origin of the recipes. Not being as big of a railfan as many there that night it was fun to see them rush out with cameras in hand each time a train went by. Wish we could have stayed longer to enjoy the area and the rest of the weekend. We had a lovely drive there although we did get lost trying to find the inn. Anyone interested in trains or coal mines and need a place to stay---this is for you!! They've done a remarkable job.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you so much for your lovely review, and we're so glad you enjoyed "Dinner in the Dining Car" with James Porterfield! Hope to welcome you back to the Elkhorn Inn!

New Years 2011 Stay

I love locations with Character, and you cannot do better on that count than the Elkhorn Inn and Theatre. Moreover, Dan is an amazing chef. I found the Elkhorn Inn on a whim but will be a regular. If you like West Virginia, this is one location that shouldn't be missed! Dirk

Next to Hatfield McCoy Trails, Ashland ATV Resort, the Elkhorn Inn has historic railroad museum, art gallery, books signings by authors who visit, the most imaginative gourmet meals to entice the pallette, antiques, railway goes by Inn several times a day and the Inn offers a great balcony view of the passing trains. Hosts Dan and Elisse Clark are the proprietors and have a wealth of talent between the two. Dan is a gourmet chef, Elisse is an artist. Her gallery has not only her work but paintings from all over the US and overseas. I am so impressed by them. They are awakening LIFE in a sleepy little hid away village!

Innkeeper Response
