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!

We stayed in the Valley Forge Suite after purchasing a Groupon deal for the property. The room was spacious and clean. The bed was exceptionally comfortable as was the jacuzzi tub, and the gas fireplace kept the room warm and cozy.

We greatly enjoyed our stay at the facility. The Country Club suite was extremely cozy and the breakfast was top notch! We loved the 2 room suite and all it had to offer. The bed was nice, the bathroom was clean. All in all, we had a wonderful, relaxing time. We took a stroll on the grounds which was a nice breath of fresh air. The hospitality we recieved was amazing and everyone on the staff was courteous and kind. I would reccommend Elk Forge to anyone looking for a nice little retreat, 5 stars!

My wife and I had a short weekend honeymoon here, and it was a great experience! This is a renovated colonial mansion, which gives it a very interesting look and unique rooms. It was comfortable and well-maintained - we may come back here sometime!

My husband and I stayed for 2 nights in the Elkton Room with a whirlpool tub. The room has low slanted ceilings over the bed and tub, which could be problematic for tall individuals. It is moderately decorated with a small fireplace for ambiance, but lacks essential space to place your overnight bags. The bed was comfortable with it's soft sheets and the bathroom was very clean. It would have been nice to have a bar of soap or even some makeup remover wipes to give it that extra something. The overall look and feel of the Inn are charming and historic as expected. I only gave it a 3 star rating, because I think it could be amazing if they incorporate some practices that truly make their guests feel pampered. The breakfast was just ok...I didn't mind the buffet style, but I think they could have more variety in what they offer, since they aren't serving each individual. Maybe some homemade muffins, french toast, scones and cookies. Other B&B's I have been too, have some small snacks out for when new guests arrive and that really makes your stay feel extra special. I also think, it would be nice to have a K-cup machine, so guests can have coffee or tea of their choosing at all times. I think it would be a good practice to offer guests a Wifi logon. My husband and I used up 75% of our cell data roaming trying to look for things to do in the area. Stayed December 2015

The room at the Elk Forge was great complete with a fireplace, microwave, fridge, and large tub. Very cozy and comfortable. Service was extremely friendly but hard to find. There wasn't always someone at a main desk to help. The staff did make it clear that if you called the main line someone would always answer but we never used that option. If you are planning a trip to Elk Forge lodge around Christmas time, we would highly recommend calling and asking what is expected during the festival of lights and tour of the Inn. We were not aware ahead of time that we needed to pack our stuff and remove it from our room for several hours on a Saturday night so tourists could view all of the rooms. The festival was enjoyable event but having to pack up our stuff and move it was slightly disruptive and unusual. Other guests felt the same way. The spa/massages were excellent. There really should be two people giving massages for two people as opposed to one person going back and forth. Hot tub was a plus. We enjoyed the breakfast buffets. We would recommend Elk Forge to friends but again, advanced notice of inn tour expectations would have been helpful.

This place was absolutely amazing..... My husband and I enjoyed everything about this B&B aND aother did our daughter ..... we wanted to find a home away from home where we could relax and have fun. The house was lovely and the service was exceptional. We stayed in the brandywine suite that came with the tub that's actually featured on the site and it was everything we hoped for..... If your looking for a B&B that's beautiful, clean, with great views of the surrounding nature this is the place..... They have near by horse stables where u can ride, wine Vineyard, and beautiful hiking trails. I can't wait until we can go back.
