“UNIQUE & ROMANTIC”
Reviewed 30 August 2012

This historic Inn is along I-95 & very convenient for any travelers between Wilmington, DE & Baltimore, MD. Whoever will decide to stop there will enjoy the quiet & romantic country settings, full buffet breakfast. People are very friendly and helpful.

My wife and had the pleasure of staying for 2 nights. The room is quaint and spacious. The Innkeepers are very nice and friendly. The breakfast was far above the average, The location is near many places to visit including Longwood Gardens and the Willmington Waterfront. We intend on going back for very soon. If you like traveling and Bed and Breakfast places, than this is a must stop!

Room Tip: Any room you choose will be nice. We heard all good things from evryone that was staying the same ti...

Elf Forge has a lovely setting. The grounds, inn and rooms have beautiful decor with great attention to detail. The staff are very friendly and attentive to the needs of the guests. The breakfast offers unique dishes in a quaint environment.

I don't quite understand some of the negative reviews of this B&B. The reviewers seemed as if they were talking about another place. We stayed inexpensively for 2 nights using a Living Social coupon. The Baltimore Room was nicely furnished, clean, roomy & ready upon our arrival. We were promptly greeted and shown to our accomodations. One of the highlights of this B&B is the variety of spacious public areas for sitting and reading. There were computers available for use, although they were very slow. Much better was the wi-fi that we could immediately connect to in our room. Breakfast on both mornings was great, with a hot entree, waffles, fresh fruit, muffins & other breads. No, we did not get to meet the owners, but who cares? The staff we did encounter was friendly & helpful. We even were able to talk to the breakfast chef. Everyone wanted to ensure we were having a pleasant stay. We would not hesitate to return to the Elk Forge B&B.

We stayed in the Brandywine room. It may have been nice @ one time but is far from it now. The ceiling was moldy & the room in need of a good cleaning. The carpet was stained there was dirt, dust & dead bugs all over the place even in the tea room. Their website is misleading in only showing the good part of a room. Skip it. It was a huge disappointment & the breakfast was gross. Who ever heard of coconut & pineapple in eggs.

Room Tip: Stay away there aren't any.

My husband and I visited Elk Forge for our anniversary and stayed in the Brandywine suite. For the price, we were expecting WAY more than what we got. The room was dated...holes in the couch, paint peeling off the jacuzzi, and 12 inch TV's. The bed was comfortable, the water hot, and room spacious. We did not see the owners even once during our stay, which we thought was really odd. Breakfast was a bit pathetic, with not much selection. There is absolutely nothing to do in Elkton, and even Newark, DE was a disappointment. While our stay was comfortable and relaxing, we will not return to this B & B.

The Elk Forge is located in a nice, wooded area with a stream nearby. If you're looking for solitude, this might be for you. If you're visiting family and looking to explore, this is a bit out of the way (really nothing in walking distance, and a decent drive to any sights).
As many of the reviewers have noted, the owners weren't around, so it feels a bit more like a hotel than a B&B. We have several in our party and two of us were in the main house and the rooms were nice, but I wouldn't say spectacular in any way. The wallpaper, carpeting, etc. were dated, and our room had what seemed like too many plugs in an outlet. The TV was "old school" and not very good. The third room we had was above a series of garages, so definitely more like a hotel, and it had a bad smell. Also, for one of our rooms, it wasn't made up on one of the days so we got back late to an unmade bed and dirty towels.
This is a small town, and there are not many options in this area, so while this may not be great, or even very good, it might be better than some of the other options.
