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!

I was skeptical about Elk Forge Bed and Breakfast but once I got in room it was lovely. We stayed in the Brandywine room for our anniversay getaway. I love the atmosphere, the decor and the quaintness. The rooms were clean, but the shower needed some maintenance, because the set up that they tried to put in place I had to do some maneurving to take a shower, thank goodness for the bath. The breakfast was great the first morning, the second morning not sure what they tried to put together but it wasn't nothing to write home about, thank goodness for the cereal and toast. Also the wine selection was nothing as it was listed and we had to settle for something else and it wasn't chilled either. Had to settle for something that they had in stock. We overall enjoyed our stayed but will ensure when we come back we have somethings in place. The staff overall was friendly and nice. I would recommend the Inn to friends and my wife is still talking about our trip.

We live in Philadelphia and just wanted an easy getaway in the middle of the week. It was everything we wanted and more! Everybody was so nice, and the building was so charming. We will definitely be back!

My wife and I spent 2 nights in the middle of October 2014, stayed in the Wilmington room. I felt the room was a little small, but bed was very comfortable and room was clean as was the bathroom. The doors to the bathroom were not snug nor soundproof though. Breakfast was very nice both mornings, only complaint is the coffee is in those over sized thermoses and really didn't hold the heat. This is a very old building and is kept nicely as is the property, the staff is very friendly and engaging, asking you how you slept, what you did that day etc. I would go back if we were spending time in that area again.

Beautiful building, beautiful grounds, overpriced. Sometimes to get a little class you have to pay for it!

I had one of the cottages and it was fabulous. Very spacious and made me feel at home. I love the vaulted ceilings and ceiling fans in every room.

Extremely pleasant stay. Very relaxing and just overall perfect. Only problem I had was that the fireplace wasn't working but since I didn't stay to long it wasn't a very big deal.

First, I must say this is a great place. I was pleasantly surprised to find something so nice this nice close to Elkton. It's also nice that it's only 15 min or so from Christiana mall. I was slightly disappointed with how small our room was because I imagined it slightly larger from the very few pictures online. There are very nice suites but they were sold out, so I settled for one of the third floor rooms. But only slightly disappointed. It was a nice, clean room and had everything we needed for a romantic retreat: bed and hot tub. Something so simple (and with an old tv, with spotty cable, some channels missing sound) could be cheaper, but overall, the whole place is very nice, and I certainly don't apply the cable issue necessarily to the B&B. If one goes to a place like this for the cable, that's kinda sad anyway, but I'd recommend new tvs in the coming months. I read other reviews that criticised the food. they must have remedied this. The food is excellent! It is a continental breakfast with many options, including a delicious homemade granola. I must say that if you are one who enjoys being served scant portions of exotic type, gourmet food and chit chatting with the inn keeper, this is not the place for you. The inn keepers are very hospitable and friendly but since I wasn't there to chat, I liked being left alone too. They have movies and games and very nice sitting areas. Solid 4.5 out of 5. I'd go back .

purchased a package for our anniversary. called ahead as planned so the room could be set up. no one got the message. As a result nothing was done. I went to the front desk to inquire. The attendant was unaware of our package, did not listen to the voice mail that was left. The result was him handing me what should have been in our room and saying sorry, but I did not have the chance to listen to the message that was left. I can get the same this at a La Quinta hotel. I expected a little more for the price of the room. On a whole the Inn was OK, but the cost and below average service does not equal a return visit.

Our room had very interesting decor! Didn't see a rose garden as talked about in other reviews and online site. Exterior needs a little sprucing up. Loved all the little common area sitting rooms. Hot water in carafe was a little brown. I think I might return.

Mid week stay was just what my spouse needed as a break from her work routine. For me a real plus was the putting green just beyond the parking area.
