Elmwood Farms August 2018

5 on August 13, 2018

We rode our bikes from Pgh to DC and stayed at bed and breakfast each day. This was THE BEST place we stayed. We were picked up in town, our bikes were washed by the owner , we had a tour of the property, our clothes were washed and dried and we had a wonderful breakfast. This place is amazing and if you are on the trail, it’s a must stop layover. We already booked a return visit in November for our 1 year anniversary. Highly recommended and the hosts are incredible!!!

Innkeeper Response

An Amazing Gem

5 on April 18, 2018

My first time at a B and B-now I am totally spoiled! We were immediately greeted by Shannon who was super friendly and helpful. The home was wonderfully updated and extremely clean. I love that it is away from town and not surrounded by neighbors-we were really looking forward to the solitude. Very tranquil! Close to the C&O for hiking/biking and close to Hagerstown for a nice dinner in the evening. Thanks Selena and Shannon for making our stay so wonderful.
