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. We are nestled in a lovely wooded area that is tucked between the limestone bluffs. The Maple Leaf consists of three main buildings with five charming updated rooms. Located in the Garden House is our dining room where you will enjoy delicious meals.

The new innkeeper, Deborah Smith, provides the most unique bed and breakfast experience you will find anywhere. With great pride, we offer many amenities with attention to detail. Clean, comfortable rooms, beautiful views, tasty snacks, homemade breakfasts with a friendly, accommodating staff awaits you.

Enjoy a relaxing walk viewing the diverse and unique homes listed on the Elsah National Historic Register. We take pride in our spectacular gardens. An appreciation of nature's beauty resides here. Relaxing on our porches or sitting at the many tables placed throughout our gardens is a past time of many guests. Others have enjoyed hiking, biking and taking a stroll to the Mississippi River. Also, cozy up around our fire pit in the evenings under the stars.

If you are looking for a unique venue we are set up to host: small weddings and receptions; a romantic getaway; intimate dinners; bridal and baby showers; birthdays and scrap booking parties. The possibilities are endless! We are available to help you plan your event big or small. We would love to make your experience at the Maple Leaf Cottage Inn a most memorable one. You will want to come back again and again.
