The land is on our property, next to the Elkhorn Inn, which is on Route 52, in Landgraff, WV (between the towns of Eckman, and Kimball, WV). The area includes our garden, and is on Elkhorn Creek, and has a view of the passing trains (the Norfolk Southern "Pocahontas" line), which makes it very popular with railfan guests! There is potable drinking water available, and campers may use restroom and shower facilities in the Inn. We are in the mountains of McDowell County, which is known for having the best ATV trails in the eastern USA (there are 100s of miles of FREE trails in our county, as well as the famed "Hatfield-McCoy Trail System trails, and as it is Legal to ride ATVs on the roads here, you can ride your ATV from the Inn right to the trails! There are ramps (a wild garlic-onion beloved of chefs!), to pick in the spring, and wild blackberries to pick in July-August! There is great trout fishing (fly-fishing and regular fishing; we promote "catch-and-release" fishing) on Elkhorn Creek, which runs right behind the Inn and has been called "the best wild trout stream in the USA" by Trout Unlimited members, and world-class railfanning, aka "trainspotting", and photography ops! (The Elkhorn Inn was called "the best legal train-watching location in the USA" in Railfan and Railroad Magazine!) Other area fun includes hiking at a State Park and State Forest, a fun mountain golf course (9 holes and a cart for 2 people is only $22, and you can ride your ATV to the golf course!), two nearby lakes, gorgeous leaf pepping and the Bramwell Oktoberfest in the fall, and numerous historic sites to visit, including the "coal baron mansions" and restored train station museum in Bramwell, Coalwood, of "Rocket Boys" and "Oktober Sky" book and movie fame, Kimball (home of the first and only surviving Memorial Bldg, for Black Soldiers of WWI), Welch, War, Roderfield, Jolo, the Exhibition Coal Mine in Pocahontas, VA, etc. There are several diners and fast-food places nearby, and Dinners at the Inn are available by reservation.
The "Coal Heritage Trail " Elkhorn Inn was built in 1922 by Empire Coal & Coke Company as their "Miner's Clubhouse". The only surviving historic building in the area, it was restored after the floods of 2001/2002 by Dan & Elisse Clark, and we opened our new home as the Elkhorn Inn in 2003. The Inn has been featured on HGTV, Speed Channel, and in other media, and Dan won the Coal Heritage Trail Preservation Award from America's ByWays for his restoration. The land next to the inn once held the Landgraff Coal Mine tipple and approx. 30 coal company houses, all of which were destroyed by the 2001/2002 floods. The land now houses our garden, parking area, and a place for camping. Our property also includes the only copy of Shakespeare's Globe Theatre in West Virginia!
