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!

My husband and I stayed at Elk Forge Bed and Breakfast for our anniversary getaway. We had a wonderful time at the inn. Our room accommodations were so nice, and breakfast each morning was delicious! We also purchased the romance package which was beautifully done. A dozen roses, bottle of wine, chocolates, roses petals throughout the room and a lovely basket which consisted of a candle, chocolates, bath soaps/lotions. We will definitely recommend your inn and hopefully be back in the near future.

My fiance and I were celebrating our last anniversary of dating before we will be celebrating marriage anniversaries, and we decided we just wanted a quiet little stay away from Baltimore. When booking the room online, the pictures of the rooms were just lovely -- but they were even BETTER in person! All staff we interacted with were so helpful, friendly, and went out of their way to make sure we were comfortable. We were even upgraded to the Brandywine suite, which was very romantic (fireplace, whirlpool tub, soft bed). Since we were the only guests that evening on a cold, rainy day, we were even given the option of what time we'd like breakfast. THAT really impressed me, since I used to work in hospitality and am used to the strict breakfast hours. Breakfast had a great selection and was delicious; try the teas they have out! And check out their gift shop, where you can buy tea, teapots, and souvenirs. We took a walk around the grounds down to the stream and through the woods before we left, such a lovely area. Their set up for weddings/events looks really nice as well. Overall, AMAZING experience and we will be back!

We had planned to go back to Cancun to celebrate our 1 year anniversary. Being educators within Baltimore City Public School System just made it hard for both of us to take the time off, this year. So I have a dilemma, where shall I take my wife to celebrate our 1 year? I reviewed the comments and decided RSVP for three days and two nights...... Andrew who was on duty was OUTSANDING!!! The atmosphere, the grounds AND the couple massage was incredible....... Also the sweetheart package was wonderful.... my wife loved it!! I scored some major points this past Memorial Day weekend!!! I highly recommend staying at this Bed and Breakfast if you need to relax and get away..... Christopher and Sherri

After a quick wedding we wanted to stay near our home for the weekend as to not be far away in case of emergencies with the kids. So I picked this B&B north of Elkton. We stayed in the carriage house suite. Very large, nice room. Zero complaints with the suite. We thought the staff was amazing, super friendly, and eager to please. They were fantastic. The only thing I was not a fan of was the breakfast portion of it. It was just meh. Ok I guess, certainly not great. Seemed to me like they were trying to be overly fancy with a spinach quiche when everyone would have been happier with eggs and bacon. "french toast cassarole"?? Again... just scrambled eggs and sausage would be fine. If you are some sorta weird health nut there was plenty of breads, and granola, and fruits. But considering its a "bed and breakfast" I found the breakfast part lacking. Other than that it was a great little 2 day getaway. Would recommend.

It was nice and clean, but nothing spectacular. There was free wifi, but other than that it seemed that nothing else had been updated in the last 20 years or so. We appreciated the flexible eating time for breakfast, but there wasn't an overabundance of food. We felt we has to get to breakfast early on the second morning before they ran out of fruit!

This is a quiet, peaceful spot to stay when you are in the Newark area. The inn was elegant and comfortable. We loved the attention to details. Every corner of the inn's common areas had delightful surprises awaiting -- a chessboard, a beautiful fountain, historic stained glass windows, charming accent pieces. We had a great weekend and are looking forward to visiting again.

We really enjoyed our stay. It was very peaceful and a come as you go approach. For example, when we arrived, our keys were left at the front desk with a letter describing where our room was located and what times breakfast was served along with other important info we needed to know. We liked not having to actually deal with anyone. Of course if someone was needed, they could be reached. We will definitely go back. When we arrived, we were also upgraded to a nicer room, still unsure as to why, but definitely no complaints.

I enjoyed staying at Elk Forge. Check in was a breeze, no forms to fill out or any kind of hassle. We were able to check in early with no penalty and our room was ready. The facility is older but extremely clean. The staff was friendly and non evasive. When we were told we had the run of the place, they meant it. There was no hovering or bothering us all the time. If we needed something the staff was easy to locate and quick to be helpful. Breakfast could have been a little more extensive. An a la carte could be offered to those who wish to have bacon or sausage without having to get the egg casserole provided. Also having more than one waffle maker might be helpful. There was a long wait one morning. Over all I enjoyed our time there and hope to return.

This was my 1st time staying at a bed and breakfast and I enjoyed every moment with my husband. We have 3 kids and the 2 days and 2 nights were very peaceful and relaxing. We did not take advantage of the massage therapy, but we took advantage of the whirlpool inside the room. If you are looking for a close, but secluded place to get away... This is the place to go -- It was an hour away from my home, but far enough from the kids...
