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!

As we travel from Boston MA TO Raleigh NC to visit family for a Thanksgiving week, exact halfway is at the Elk Forge B&B! A lovely and welcoming resting spot, where each room is uniquely designed and decorated like a countryside estate. It takes you to a different time and place and they serves the best mix of homemade breakfast treats. The owners of the Inn, Harry and LeAnn Lenderman have thought of everything to consistently make our stay comfortable! Thanks to both of you! Ric and Denise Peterson

My Fiance and I stayed here for her birthday and we had a nice quiet and peaceful stay. We woke up to Scottish breakfast delight's and the blueberry waffles we're magnificent. I took her to dinner on her birthday at a nice pub a couple miles away and I ordered the romantic package. When we returned from dinner the room was layed out in rose pedals and tea candles and the bed was turned down and there was also a surprise gift package on the bed which had chocolate's, sparkling cider and other surprise's. My Fiance and I had a wonderful time and will definitely be returning. My Fiance refered to it as a Hallmark movie. We definitely will visit again!!!

We visited here for our anniversary and were very pleased with our room and the surrounding grounds. Although the breakfast was better than in most hotels, the same dish was prepared for our two mornings and was not replenished on the second morning when it was finished by 8am. Also, sadly, for a bnb with a tea shoppe connected, there was only one type of tea (Earl Grey) on offer at breakfast and apparently nothing else available. Still, we very much enjoyed our stay!

This place is amazing, quaint and lovely. When you first walk in, it feels like you are home. It was surprisingly quiet, i assumed that being a B&B it would be a bit loud with people coming and going but it was actually not that at all. Each room has such character, the breakfast area is perfect, with the sun coming in through the glass windows and doors. You have decks to lounge in, areas where you can pick a book and read or just sit and enjoy "me" time. Everyone there makes you feel like family and no matter how busy they are they still take time and take care of your needs. I am definitely going back.

This Bed and Breakfast was just like the ones that I watch on the Hallmark movie. It was so charming and picturesque. I have taken a lot of pictures, and one of them in particular I used on my desktop background at work, it doesn't even look real , it is too gorgeous !! The room was small but tidy, and the hot tub was just what the doctor ordered.. Staff was friendly, and the service was excellent... It was well worth the drive !

My husband and I truly enjoyed our 3 night stay at Elk Forge. From the moment we arrived we were treated with such kindness. Our room was huge and very comfortable. The breakfast each morning was very good and someone came around to check on us every day. We would definitely recommend this Inn and hope to stay there again soon.

We had a wondeful stay. The building and grounds are beautiful. The breakfast was good. We had a few minor complaints about the tv remote and showerhead, which the innkeeper has responded to and is addressing.
