Not sure about where to stay in Elkins. Things to do would be a short drive down Rt 219 to Rt 66 and over to Snowshoe Mtn. Ski resort in the winter but many activities in the summer. Don't know your plans for elkins but you could possibly get room, condo or cabin at Snowshoe. Hiking, horseback riding, mtn bike riding, golf, ,etc....

Drop over the mountain to Cass Scenic Railroad. Just checked their website. June 17 is a bluegrass/dinner ride on the train.

Look up the Cheat River Inn or Cheat River Lodge. Same place really. About 6 miles out of town. Pretty area and very good food in the restaurant. You'll need reservations. You can stay there but I think its kind of pricy.

The other reply mentioned Cass. That's a neat place in my opinion. You can ride the old logging train to the top of the second highest spot in the state.

I'll post a link to our pictures if you might be interested.

Depending on age and abilities there's lots to see and do in the area. Graceland in at D & E College is another option. I've not stayed there but the historical mansion is worth going to see, possibly eat lunch or dinner.
