Extraordinary!! Great attention to detail - for example - brownies waiting for us in the room. And the necessary things too.....the bed was the most comfortable I’ve ever slept in. And QUIET!! One of the very few places in the US that doesn't hum or buzz or whirr. Tim and Deborah are great hosts - as we found over breakfast... More

Your review was extremely kind and we thank you very much. Greeting guests, pampering guests, and feeding guests are all so much fun ... actually getting to sit and chat with our guests with a cup of coffee, the BEST! We love to hear about you ... your travels and your life journey. Elsah is a place that sits perfectly... More

Upon our arrival we were warmly greeted by Deborah. We were shown to our charming and cozy room at the Wash House. Deborah made sure we were settled in for the evening. Our room was clean and the bed very comfortable; we felt right at home. That evening we enjoyed the cool fall weather by the fire pit. The following... More

My sister and I stayed at the Maple Leaf Cottage Inn for our sister get together weekend. The Maple Leaf is lovely. Very quaint and clean. Our room "The Gables" had wonderfully comfortable beds. The real highlight to Maple Leaf, though is the hostess, Deb. She was super attentive and made sure we had everything that we desired. She brought... More

You are very kind and thoughtful. Taking the time to write a message to TripAdvisor is greatly appreciated. We enjoyed having the "sister getaway" with us.

We discovered this quaint little community of Elsah quite by accident. The Maple Leaf Cottage Inn does a wonderful job of entertaining visitors to Elsah by focusing on the details. the food is good, the rooms are comfortable, etc. etc. Good in room coffee, even premium bath tissue.

Thank you for taking the time out of your busy day to write a message to TripAdvisor about your experience. Like many other visitors to Elsah, it was a delightful "accidental" find. Traveling along side the great Mississippi river on the River Road (Route 100), you will pass us by if you aren't looking for us. Once you turn into... More

We absolutely fell in love with this B&B. It is nestled in the quaint, little historic town of Elsah, IL. From the moment we arrived, we were made to feel welcome and pampered. The rooms are beautifully decorated and very comfortable. The bonfire pit was such a great touch when we arrived back in the evenings. It was so nice... More

Wonderful experience, lovely and very walkable little doll house of a town. Deborah Smith treated us like millionaires, told the local history, and was like loving family in hospitality. She offers several kinds of rooms and a delightful garden with so many comforable chairs. I hated to go back to real life.
