Historic Interest

Featured on HGTV's "Building Character" & "ReZoned" programs, the "Coal Heritage Trail" Elkhorn Inn was designed by the region's preeminent architect, Alex Mahood, and built in 1922 by Empire Coal and Coke Co. as their "Miner's Clubhouse". The Elkhorn Inn is on West Virginia's "Coal Heritage Trail", and Dan Clark was awarded the 2008 Historic Preservation Award by the Coal Heritage Trail/America's Byways for his saving and restoration of the last surviving historic property in this area.

Romantic Interest

Antique, clawfoot bathtubs (and bubble bath!), the European-style balcony and fireplace lounge, and the fine art, vintage quilts and Italian lighting fixtures decorating the Inn all combine for a lovely, romantic ambiance. Dan and Elisse saved this historic building and lovingly restored it - and if that's not romance, what is?
