Traveling to our Remote Location…
Off I-79, Exit 51, our remote Haven is beyond the Elk River near the Elk River Water trail access point and accessible via a 6 mile rural road that leads to a mountain gravel road into the valley. We are located at the head of the hollow, at the head of Coon Creek. Our private gravel road is gated for guaranteed peace and privacy. Though standard vehicles can traverse the gravel roads with caution, vehicles slightly higher off the ground, 4x4 or all wheel drive vehicles are recommended, particularly during inclement weather. For your convenience, Enterprise Rental Agency is located in Flatwoods Factory Outlet Stores and the nearest airports.
