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... More

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... More

We enjoyed our quick get away to Elk Forge very much. We were able to get a Living Social certificate, which gave us a fairly risk free opportunity to try this nice looking place. There were lots of really good things and lots of little not so good things. Luckily there was only one big not so good thing. Very... More

My husband and I visited this quaint colonial style home for our 14th Wedding Anniversary and we were charmed by the size of the house and all the amenities there were. Our room was clean and comfortable and completely secluded from the rest of the rooms and the nights were quiet and romantic with the whirlpool and fireplace. In the... More

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... More
