Just off the Great River Road, located in the quaint, historic Village of Elsah (which is over 150 years old) you will find the Maple Leaf Cottage Inn. Nestled in a lovely wooded area tucked between the limestone bluffs, the Maple Leaf consists of three main buildings with five charming updated rooms. 

The new innkeeper, Deborah Smith, provides the most unique bed and breakfast experience you will find anywhere. With great pride, they offer clean, comfortable rooms, beautiful views, tasty snacks and homemade breakfasts with a friendly, accommodating staff.

An appreciation of nature's beauty resides in their spectacular gardens. Relaxing on their porches or sitting at the many tables placed throughout the gardens is a past time of many guests. Others have enjoyed hiking, biking and taking a stroll to the Mississippi River. You can also cozy up around the fire pit in the evenings under the stars.

If you are looking for a unique venue, Maple Leaf Cottages can host small weddings and receptions; a romantic getaway; intimate dinners; bridal and baby showers; birthdays and scrap booking parties. The possibilities are endless! The staff is available to help you plan your event big or small.
