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!

Outstanding Weekend!!!

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.


Loved it!

My boyfriend saw this on groupon and I've wanted to go to A bed and breakfast forever. This place was a great choice. I loved the old Victorian house, the furniture the paintings and just the whole set up was beautiful. The staff gave just the right amount of help they weren't overbearing, it felt like it was our own house for the 3 days we stayed. A very enjoyable peaceful stay, We will definitely be coming back!


This place is AMAZING!!!

I went to school at the University of Delaware and never heard of this place. Who would've known that it could be so great. Our room was nice and cozy and the Jacuzzi tub put it over the top. Great service as well. I am definitely coming back.


Peaceful R&R

5 on February 11, 2015

It was my fiancé's birthday so I was looking for a nice getaway for the weekend. I stumble after the place and seen all the good reviews so I book it. It was quiet and relaxing, and the staff was very friendly and help with anything we needed. They provided a tasty breakfast every morning. I would definitely stay here again.


Winter Days

3.8 on January 30, 2015

Celebrating our anniversary for a two day stay at the B&B was quiet, warm, comfortable and relaxing. We stayed in the Wilmington Room and although small, the bed was comfortable, the two person whirlpool tub was fabulous and the electric fireplace kept us cozy. A romance package of flowers, goodies, chocolate and wine was set up by staff and well done (candles too). We stayed at the end of January and a bit of snowfall was quite beautiful.....but the grounds would be even better in the spring or fall! Most of all, the quiet nature of the location was peaceful and relaxing.


Quaint place, beautiful location, convenient to everything

3.4 on January 26, 2015

This B&B was a refreshing escape. We enjoyed the scenery, the food was good and the rooms cozy. It's location was secluded yet close to anything you may need.


Great Weekend at Elk Forge!
