We stayed in the Surrey Room above the garage. While we never saw any rooms in the main house, the Surrey Room was a dump. Awful moldy smell, rotting door threshold, random, mis-matched Goodwill furniture, broken kitchen drawers, no Kleenex, burnt-out lights, a bathroom door that didn’t close, broken window frame, bugs everywhere. The breakfast was awful. Exactly what you’d expect at a Motel 6 but not at a full-price B&B. A badly neglected property guaranteed to disappoint. Avoid.

Elk Forge Inn has potential to be a great B&B, but the hosts are not very hospitable, the place is looking rather haggard, and the breakfast is really poor quality. It is an expensive Inn, so one would expect a much nicer stay. It's a beautiful old home and nicely furnished in general, but everything is a bit run down. Chipped furniture in the rooms, low quality linens, window treatments sagging, shriveling plants and cheap vinyl tablecloths in the breakfast room. The breakfast was especially bad -- boxed cereal, "hostess" twinkies in their plastic wrapping (I am NOT making this up), no interesting fresh fruit (no melon, berries, etc. just apples, oranges, bananas like a Motel 6!) and most egregious--weak tasteless coffee.

I booked a 75 minute massage treatment and even though the masseuse was excellent I would not go back. I was tempted to ask her if she worked at another spa so I could book her elsewhere. As I walked downstairs to the massage room I was greeted with a pungent smell of damp, musty and moldy odor. I suspect they had some flooding in the spa “basement” and never removed the carpets for cleaning, it was so bad that I told her I couldn’t stay I would have an asthma attack during my massage. She told me her area was further back and it didn’t smell too bad back there. I followed her in the next room and I agreed it wasn’t as bad as the first room, so I stayed, I really felt bad for her having to work under those conditions. How embarrassing! Normally I would have loved the basement feel, it was like being in a cuddle cave. Too bad they didn’t address the flood issue. I won’t be back because I still can’t get that smell out of my nose!!! Honestly, a phone call to me prior to my apt telling me that they had to cancel my apt do to maintenance issues would have been the proper thing to do. So disappointed, it says so much about the establishment. I gave two stars for the masseuse, otherwise the review itself would have been below one.

I imagine this property used to be magnificent. But it hasn’t been kept up. We stayed in the Coach Carriage House with friends. There was such a gap under the front door that bugs kept coming in. And the wooden decks were in disrepair. We were hoping to sit outside but the furniture was covered with mildew. We walked the paths which were nice. No kcups, no soap in the shower, no paper towels in the kitchen. Definite lack of amenities. We never saw an employee while we were there. Hopefully they will bring it back to its former splendor.

My college-aged daughter booked a single nights stay with a spa package. After booking, the owners contacted her and said that the spa was unavailable, so she asked to cancel the reservation. She was then informed that she was within the 10 day refund window. They refunded the spa costs, but would not refund the nights stay ($147). I called to explain that the whole reason for the stay was a couples spa and night out as a birthday gift, and since they couldn’t provide the advertised package, she wanted to go elsewhere. I was even willing to pay the $30 cancellation fee. They did not go, we’re charged the nights stay, and still received the somewhat insulting, automated ‘Thanks for coming, hope you enjoyed your stay” email. So, this is the first negative review I’ve ever written on TripAdvisor, and I don’t want to, but…. I travel a lot, and as a rule, try to stay at the small mom and pop B&Bs. I understand that a cancellation effects them much more than a large chain. But if you advertise a service, which results in a booking, and then can’t provide that service, you should refund the entire booking. Otherwise, this is just false advertising and theft.
