There are many things to like about Elk Forge B & B, but unfortunately most of them are outweighed by the things that aren't likable. And the fact that it all is "fixable" and that isn't being done, makes it even more disheartening.. First the good - the main building seems quite impressive as you approach the property. The grounds... More

My husband and I stayed this past weekend at Elk Forge. I had a living social certificate which is how we chose the place originally. We stayed in the Country Club suite which was perfect. It was a large 2 room suite with King bed and fireplace. Also has deck seating out front. Bring your suit and enjoy the outdoor... More

The room was wonderful, the breakfast was very good, the hosts were delightful. We've been to several other B&B's and this one was quiet, nice rooms and a nice breakfast served buffet-style. It is not in the heart of the city, but that is part of the attraction.

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... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

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... More
