Hotel at a Glance: Elk Forge Bed & Breakfast Inn

Elk Forge Bed & Breakfast Inn looks like it was pulled from the pages of a romance novel: set on five wooded acres outside Wilmington, the butter-yellow inn has long white balconies, manicured gardens, and nature trails winding around it. Inside, the place is at once luxurious and homey, with fireplaces and cable TV in each room.

  • Expanded continental breakfasts served each morning.
  • Relax by the fireplace in one of the uniquely decorated rooms or suites, all of which come with plush lounging robes and private bathrooms; some even have jetted tubs.
  • Indulge in a massage or a facial at the onsite spa, Tea Garden Spa.
  • Bond with nature: picturesque woods, lavish gardens, and scenic trails offer opportunities for outdoor recreation.

Elkton, Maryland: Quaint Town Known as “Elopement Capital”

More than just the “city of love,” Elkton, Maryland was the city of marriage—in the 1920s and ’30s it was famous as “the elopement capital of the East Coast.” As other states in the early 20th century were passing restrictive marriage laws, Maryland (Elkton in particular) became notorious as a destination to get married quickly. Thousands of couples have wed in the small, quaint town, including Debbie Reynolds, Willie Mays, and Pat Robertson. The rush slowed in 1938 when a 48-hour waiting period for marriages passed into law in Elkton. Regardless, the town’s reputation precedes itself—there are still multiple wedding chapels in town where people frequently elope.

Shops and local restaurants line nearby downtown Newark, Delaware’s charming Main Street as well. Staying here, you’ll also be close to attractions such as the 5,000-acre Fair Hill Nature Preserve and the Winterthur Museum, Garden & Library, a beautiful 60-acre garden, research library, and 175-room house and art museum. If it’s city lights you’re looking for, Philadelphia is less than an hour’s drive away.

Honestly very nice! The door was locked so the owner swung by and he was incredibly friendly! The directions to our room were simple to follow and it was GORGEOUS! We stayed in Valley Forge and the suite was absolutely massive with a living room, hot tub, bathroom, and bedroom. Two fire places two TVs. I enjoyed the privacy and how we were free to roam the area and house. I highly recommend!

The best thing about being there was Harry and staff. The grounds are beautiful and close to everything you would need. Fuel, stores, beach is very close by. We walked in the woods, took beautiful photos and had a few very relaxing nights in the Hot Tub. It was very nice to sit on the deck and have breakfast. State Parks are close by too. Thank you for your hospitality. We will see you soon Harry.
