The Destination
Once the gritty center of an industrial milling operation—and the site of a few skirmishes between colonists and redcoats—the Elk Forge Bed and Breakfast Inn and Retreat, in Elkton, Maryland, is now the region's most charming, upscale property. Set on five acres of beautiful woods, nature trails, and scenic gardens, this historic retreat just an hour from Baltimore makes the perfect venue for a quick getaway.

The Digs
The restored 18th century property features six themed rooms—the Chesapeake, Wilmington, Elkton, Fair Hill, Baltimore, and Lancaster. Most feature whirlpools, and all are equipped with cozy fireplaces and daydream-worthy beds. Or, unwind in one of five suites—the Country Club, Valley Forge, Coach Carriage, Surrey Carriage, or Brandywine. All are appointed with a sitting room with mahogany furniture, a whirlpool, and a fireplace, and some are equipped with two bedrooms and a full kitchen. Some suites are also pet-friendly. After a breakfast of Belgian waffles, fresh fruit, pastries, and yogurt, explore the inn's nature conservatory, then hike the lush country trails that surround the property.

With your 20-percent discount on spa services, book a Togetherness Massage for two, or purify your pores with a Lavender Flower body polish. Once you've been thoroughly refreshed, lie back in the outdoor hot tub, which is open year-round. Then head for Bunbury's Tea Room & Shop at Elk Forge to shop for baked goods, teas, and other items.

The Diversions
Take a drive to nearby Lancaster County to experience Pennsylvania Dutch Country the way the locals do: on a horse and buggy. Be sure to savor authentic Dutch cuisine, like baked country ham and pepper cabbage, at Good 'N Plenty Restaurant. Or, keep it local with a trip to Chesapeake City, just ten miles south. This one-horse town on the Chesapeake and Delaware Canal claims a spot on the National Register of Historic Places for its Victorian charm, antiques shops, and art galleries.

  • "The house and grounds were incredible—it was like stepping back into Victorian times—and we found the staff friendly and knowledgeable of the rich history of the property and surrounding area."
