First of all, if you have 15 plus rooms, maybe you should have at least that many parking spots, I paid close to 400 for a two day stay and had to park on the grass while the people who work here park right up by the entrance. The breakfast is ok, its not as fancy as they make it...

A couple things about this place, first when we drove up, it looked very beautiful. I can see why people would get married there. We were greeted by a young man, who checked us in and gave us some information. We looked around the bed and breakfast, it was a beautiful building, looked more like colonial period time and kinda...

We recently had a weekend stay at Elk Forge. We enjoyed our time there. We would not hesitate to return or to recommend the facility to anyone. Although some things in other reviews are correct (roadway, quarry etc.) This was only our second time at a B&B, and it is a different experience than just a hotel room. We traveled...

My husband and I had a wonderful time on our weekend getaway at Elk Forge! It was our first bed & breakfast experience and it exceeded our expectations! We loved the atmosphere, very welcoming and warm yet we were given our own space. My husband said, "It was like staying at a relatives house, without the relatives!" Ha! The fancy...

I read the reviews before staying so I had an idea of what to expect. We stayed for 2 nights and had a nice time - but nothing too memorable. The property is very nice, but close to a road & quarry (which we woke up to the noise from one of the mornings). Our room was spacious, but needed...

We stayed in the Brandywine room & it needs some work... Broken blinds, unfinished drywall patch work in both the bedroom & the sitting room. It could be a great room - with some work. The bed was comfy, but the "shower" in the bathroom is underwhelming. My advice: while charming, get rid of that claw foot tub & put...

We had a wonderful relaxing stay at the Elk Forge B&B and Retreat. Our room was cozy and we enjoyed soaking in the Jacuzzi while watching television!!! The breakfast buffet was outstanding. The dining room and living room were so beautifully decorated, but above all, the warmth of the inn keepers was memorable. P.S. Please give Dubbs (a dog) a...

We loved our time at Elk Forge! It was a wonderful environment and the food was fantastic. It was a quick drive through beautiful country roads to get to Longwood Gardens, which was simply gorgeous. Really enjoyed the peace and quiet at Elk Forge. Thanks for such a great experience!

We stayed here one night with a smartbox gift card. The grounds are beautiful and there is a lot of charm in the large, open, scenic-view dining area and upstairs sitting area. The "Baltimore" room, in which we stayed, however, was small. Though quaintly decorated, the canopy queen size bed (we're used to a king) was quite high off the...
