It's a charming old house, in a beautiful rural setting, surrounded by lavish green hills, gardens and nature trails. The house was renovated so the accommodations are great. The owners were so friendly and the breakfast was awesome. We would definitely want to come back and recommend this to anyone interested in a quiet, cozy retreat. We were here in... More

From the moment we entered this lovely retreat it was delightful. The coffee and cookies, the classical music, the large public spaces beautifully furnished. This exceeded our expectations. The owner and staff were absolutely charming. We stayed in the FairHill room which was tucked up on the third floor of an enormous landing filled with comfortable furnishings. The grounds are...

The B & B is a quiet property with tons of charm. We stayed in the Country Club Suite, which had a sitting room as well as bedroom. It was very, very comfortable. The suite is handicapped accessible, as well as having direct access to the parking lot. It even has a sleep number bed! The inside of the main... More

Everything was wonderful. The detailing, the outdoor hot tub with no hours restrictions, the small putting green, the trails in the woods. And the antiques. And that staff. We just loved your attention to detail everywhere we looked. Thanks again, will be back :-)

My wife bought me a Groupon for this B&B for Father's Day. We stayed there in the Elkton room for 3 day/2 night. It had a Queen size bed, fair sized bathroom and a private hot tub. The Breakfast choices were a nice selection. There was also a nice selection of activities in the area. The B&B was quaint and... More

It is a shame for this place, at one time I'm sure it was stunning. Things are in desperate need of updating/replacing/repairing. I took my fiancé here for his birthday & was very disappointed. Part of a B&B is suppose to be the wonderful home made breakfast. Nothing of the sort here......pretty much a blah continental breakfast with two choices... More

Positives: Clean, allowed our 2 dogs in the suite, great property to walk and explore with the dogs, and a good breakfast. Negatives: Coach Carriage Suite had a musty smell, the shower was very narrow, made narrower by soap dispensers that could be better placed at the end of the shower. The mattress had a large dip in the center... More

This place has potential if it would become a true B&B. Other than the strong smell of gasoline in our room (built over the maintenance area of the Inn and separate from the other rooms) and the breakfast that was a buffet, the room was nice. If we stay there again, we will select a room in the Main House.

We had a great romantic weekend get away, and even did a spa day. The staff is warm, friendly, and helpful, the room was adorable, and the spa was excellent. Breakfast was good, with much better options than those silly Continental breakfasts; hot and delicious. We booked a dinner and wine tasting hosted by Elk Forge on our first night... More

Wonderful B&B. It was clean and neat -- we once stayed at a B&B where the owner's several cats wandered the rooms and slept on the beds and the sitting room was coated in dust (and cat hair), creating an allergy nightmare. So I was pleased that this place was so well maintained. Everything is very Colonial, which, well, I... More
