About

Elk Forge is a beautiful stone manor house built c.1760 nestled on 5 acres of wood and gardens along banks of the Big Elk Creek. We are located between Elkton, Maryland and Newark, Delaware in the serene village of Elk Mills. The area is rich with history and natural beauty and is less than three miles from I-95, twenty minutes to Wilmington Delaware. We are half-way between NYC and DC. We love to host meetings, weddings and receptions here. The property is extremely versatile and would be able to accomodate any other event type you can think of!

Elk Forge

Great place to get away!


Very nice stay, but not what was expected

3.0 on March 23, 2015

The rooms were nice and clean and the house is beautiful. The outdoor hot tub was great on a chilly evening. I was unable to pull up detailed photos of the rooms on the web site so I was quite surprised how small the room was and that the ceiling pitched very low, causing a few head bumps. The jacuzzi tub in the room worked beautifully and was very welcomed after a day of hiking. The only workers we saw there was the maid and someone at breakfast whom we assumed was the owner as she never introduced herself. Everything was self-serve including the small buffet breakfast. But, they were responsive when we called them on the phone with a question about the television. Beds were comfortable. There is a close by train track that features quite a few freight trains going by during the night.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for staying with us and for taking the time to review our Bed and Breakfast. We sincerely apologize that we were not what you were expecting, we strive to make our guests feel like they are staying at a home away from home. As for the pictures of the room, we are in the process of having new pictures taken that will give potential guests a better idea of the room sizes. Since we are a historic location, there are a few rooms that have the odd pitch that you mentioned. We also strive to greet guest when they arrive but sometimes we are unable to do so. So that this doesn't happen again, we are working on hiring new staff which will allow us to greet all of our visitors. In closing, thank you again for reviewing us and we hope that you will visit us again.


Just like home

Elk Forge B&B is fast becoming a "home away from home". It has a bit of everything; history, artistic flair, modern gourmet breakfast, comfortable rooms with a relaxing style. The staff are particularly kind and welcoming.


One Night Stay, Strausburg Room

Stayed for one night with my wife. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Room was clean and quiet and exactly as described. The Romance Package was well worth the extra money and was set up when we arrived. breakfast was good as well. would love to stay in the summer sometime as well.


Perfect getaway weekend!

We had a wonderful weekend at this beautiful B&B!! The dining area was set up so nicely and a lot of options to pick from in the morning for breakfast. The staff were friendly and helpful if you happened to pass them in the house. We also got massages from the spa and Grace did a wonderful job! Felt very relaxed and refreshed after the weekend :)


Elk Forge- a place to escape the business of I-95

4.2 on March 11, 2015

The room was very comfortable and clean. Breakfast was adequate but we had to travel to other restaurants for lunch and dinner. However menus from area restaurants were provided so it was easy to find places to eat. Overall a very pleasant and relaxing stay. Lots of fun exploring the surrounding area.


classic and comfortable

Loved it! The owners and staff were so kind. It's a great place to stay. Will definitely be back.


Outstanding Weekend!!!

5 on February 19, 2015

We arrived 10 minutes before they left the front desk and the attendan was more than helpful!! Gave us a quick tour, showed us our room and that was that. We stayed in the Longwood suite and I have to say, it was the best room we've stayed in in a while. We've been all over the world(Japan, Canada, UK, New Zealand) and although it wasnt "luxury" that's not what this place is. It has a home feel to it yet is still spectacular. Incredibly clean, smelled amazing, HUGE living space, fantastic bed, I mean there is nothing negative to he said. I 100% recommend.


Worth what I paid

3.0 on February 16, 2015

Wanted a few nights away from it all, and using the Groupon, I got what I paid for. We had the most basic room, with no real frills. The room was neat and clean, but very basic. The living areas were warm and friendly, and with no TV's or loud noises, we had our night away from it all. I expected more from the breakfast, but this was my first B&B, so my expectations could have been too high. If I had paid full price, I would have felt like I deserved more. But I do feel like I got what I paid for.
