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. They can stay within the same building to receive our wonderful treatments for body and soul. Our staff do not reside on site, but drive to the Inn & Spa to work....

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...

What a cool little place. Got to speak with the caretakers of the property while there and learned some really interesting facts about the house. The main house is over 200 years old (the additions were added in 2000 when it was turned into a bed and breakfast). Only 2 owners have held the deed to this property. Seth, one...

For the money I did not expect: bugs on the window sill mold in the corner dust-laden flower arrangements a broken soap dispenser a broken conditioner dispenser a rancid towel no temperature control of the room a snippy greeter a room so small you could not stand up on one side of the bed.

We've stayed here several times over the years as it's close to family when we visit. Staff are extremely friendly. I've dealt with Seth and Andrew, as well as their Dad. Sorry, can't remember his name. Everyone was great. The B+B is clean and situated in a wooded area. A pool would be nice on the property and maybe a...

Needed an extra night while we were staying in Chesapeake City and found this place on the internet. Gorgeous old farm house looking inn - out in the middle of nowhere but yet close to Elkton and other towns. Reminds you of being in a European country from the exterior. Innkeeper was lovely, breakfast was fantastic, room on third floor...

The inn was beautiful, and the grounds were very pretty. We enjoyed the thermos of hot coffee that was available all day. The rooms were comfortable, and the staff was very kind. We only had 1 issue when we were there and it was resolved within 30 minutes. When we arrived there was no one available to check us in....

We greatly enjoyed our weekend stay at Elk Forge! The house and room were lovely, and everyone was incredibly friendly. We really enjoyed walking around the nature trail on the property and the massages were wonderful! Thank you for making our stay so special. We look forward to future visits!

This is an Inn, with a breakfast buffet and coffee/tea in thermos' on a small sideboard. The property needs some updating but our room was clean and comfortable. It was easily accessible from the interstate and quiet. We would stay there again.

My husband and I stayed here for two nights because we purchased a Groupon that charged us only $100 a night for the Chesapeake room. So for the price, it was a good deal but if we had paid the regular price I'd have been disappointed. Here's why- The original house is from the late 1700s or early 1800s and...
