We went Nov 11-13 to celebrate 4 years. We had a wonderful time. Our room was clean and when we saw the staff they were kind. Breakfast was meh and the property needs a little upgrading though I think that's part of its charm. We used a Groupon and part of the deal was chocolate...which included 2 kisses and 2... More

My girlfriend and I have stayed at this place around the holidays over the last two years and plan to do so again this year. For us, it's a quiet quaint getaway from the city where we can spend a few days to relax. All the rooms have different themes and price ranges, the staff is very friendly, and they... More

My wife wanted this to be her birthday gift to me. She worked with the reception staff over the phone to make romantic arrangements. Ideas of what is romantic must be different in rural Maryland. Finding the place was easy and it is an impressive building. It is decorated in a relaxing Victorian style, filled with antique furnishings. The ambiance... More

I did not stay at the property just toured the first floor which was quaint but unimpressive and in need of a good uplift as many reviewers have said here. I had an appointment for a massage at the "spa", which was the basement with a massage table in it. It was HORRIBLE. Needless to say, I did not stay... More

After reading several reviews about Elk Forge B&B I planned an end of summer escape weekend. What could go wrong at a spa? I ordered the romance package a few days ahead of time via a phone call. On our arrival day I was told there was no record of the romance package. They had to run out at the... More

What a cool little place. Got to speak with the caretakers of the property while there and learned some really interesting facts about the house. The main house is over 200 years old (the additions were added in 2000 when it was turned into a bed and breakfast). Only 2 owners have held the deed to this property. Seth, one... More

For the money I did not expect: bugs on the window sill mold in the corner dust-laden flower arrangements a broken soap dispenser a broken conditioner dispenser a rancid towel no temperature control of the room a snippy greeter a room so small you could not stand up on one side of the bed.

We've stayed here several times over the years as it's close to family when we visit. Staff are extremely friendly. I've dealt with Seth and Andrew, as well as their Dad. Sorry, can't remember his name. Everyone was great. The B+B is clean and situated in a wooded area. A pool would be nice on the property and maybe a... More

Needed an extra night while we were staying in Chesapeake City and found this place on the internet. Gorgeous old farm house looking inn - out in the middle of nowhere but yet close to Elkton and other towns. Reminds you of being in a European country from the exterior. Innkeeper was lovely, breakfast was fantastic, room on third floor... More

The inn was beautiful, and the grounds were very pretty. We enjoyed the thermos of hot coffee that was available all day. The rooms were comfortable, and the staff was very kind. We only had 1 issue when we were there and it was resolved within 30 minutes. When we arrived there was no one available to check us in.... More
