A message for our guests:

Elk River Inn & Cabins is open for lodging on a limited basis and outfitting services are open and operating within the Covid 19 guidelines. We will do everything in our power to keep our guests and staff socially distanced so that our guests feel safe, comfortable and at ease. The number of visiting guests will be kept at a safe number. A recent upgrade to a fiber connection allows us to communicate with guests without physical contact.

We are now happy to serve breakfast in the dining room.

We ask that our guests help us to maintain COVID safety measures. Please bring a face covering with you to use when appropriate.
Thank you for your interest in staying with us.
We have enjoyed offering natural outdoor adventure and hospitality for over 40 years.

The Elk River Inn & Cabins has been hosting guests for 40 years. The property consists of 8 guest rooms, 4 cabins, sitting rooms, TV lounge and outfitter's shop. With adjoining decks and beautiful views, Elk River is the perfect location in Snowshoe WV for an outdoor vacation. Our summer temperatures are 5-10 degrees lower than surrounding metro areas, so expect cool nights for sleeping. Air conditioning is available in some rooms. Whether you're a hiker, biker, skier, snowboarder, angler or just a lover of nature, come and enjoy our outdoor playground!
