The many sides of the Elkridge Furnace Inn

This Howard County historic gem bordering the Patapsco State Park and overlooking Deep Run stream is visually stunning. Circa 1744 the Elkridge Furnace Inn was resurrected by Chef Daniel Wecker when it was a shell of itself back in the 1980s. Since that time the Elkridge Furnace Inn has grown under the keen eye of Chef Wecker.  The restaurant is steeped in French culinary technique utilizing “organically” grown produce from their multiple gardens on their 10 acres.  

Along with the multiple gardens, there are fruit trees and a smokehouse where charcuterie is created by chef’s deft hands. The building itself has been resurrected into formal dining rooms and a small tavern area, each with its own personality and charm.  The linen tablecloths, subdued lighting and service staff who know when and where to be seen create an evening of intimacy – quite romantic.
