We had an amazing time at this beautiful place! The Innkeepers were always very helpful and amicable, Breakfast was always good! Their homemade granola is just delicious; we made sure we got enough of it every morning, ☺️ Our kiddos loved the Conservatory, they had pretty music playing by the fireplace and the running fountain invites you to relax while...

My husband booked this bed and breakfast as a quick surprise for a one night stay. We stayed in the "Philadelphia" room from January 21- 22. The room was nice and spacious. The bed in this room is a King which was a plus. The electric fireplace in the room was a beautiful touch. The house is alittle outdated but...

My husband and I stayed here 3 years ago and loved the quiet, peaceful retreat so we decided to return over the same holiday this year. This time we stayed in the Philadelphia room which was rather spacious with its king-sized bed, two-person table for eating or enjoying a game, electric fireplace, and plenty of room to move around. The...

First time we visited this B&B we went in May 2016 with a gift certificate, given by our son and his wife for our 40th anniversary. We walked into the B&B and no one was around so we stood there at the desk surrounded by a dusty gift shop. Finally a young woman came in and gave us a key...

Once in a great while we have a guest that simply cannot feel at home in our B&B, in spite of all of our efforts. It is unfortunate that both of your check-ins did not go smoothly: once was clearly a communication glitch between housekeeping and the front desk, the second time, a delay beyond our control. In each case...

I came across this bed and breakfast gem through Groupon and booked a 3 day 2 night stay to celebrate my wife's birthday starting on 12/18/16. It seemed like a mixed bag of reviews for Elk Forge, but I am telling you the ones who didn't like it are crazy! This place was awesome! We arrived to a small bag...

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...

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...

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...

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...

I'm sorry you did not find our little Day Spa set up to your taste...it was placed in the Basement largely for the convenience of our overnight guests.

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...
