Brandywine Valley's Best B&B
The Hamanassett B&B in the Brandywine Valley is the perfect location for exploring all the sights in this beautiful part of the country - Winterthur, Longwood Gardens and the Wyeth Museum are worth the trip. Returning each night to this lovely "home away from home" was such fun - Ashley and Glenn have taken this architectural gem and adorned it with fabulous antiques and beautiful works of art. Such style...such elegance...such comfort...they've thought of every little thing from the in-room coffeemakers, to luxurious bathrobes, to a beautiful antique dish full of chalk for the pool-players' hands. Breakfast was yummy - and so plentiful that lunch wasn't necessary. There are so many spots to explore in the house and such wonderful things to look at that I'm sure I'm going to have to return many times just to take it all in. Kudos Ashley and Glenn for a job well done and many thanks for providing such gracious hospitality.
Best of the Brandywine Valley
We had a fabulous time at Hamanassett and would highly recommend it if you are planning a trip to the Brandywine Valley region! It's a beautifully kept historic mansion set on a hilltop and is central to all the area's attractions. We especially enjoyed Longwood Gardens, which really got us in the mood for Spring! Returning to the Inn after a day of touring was a pleasure. Ashley and Glenn have a true talent for making guests feel at home. The breakfast room is particularly stunning, and the stocked guest pantry, billiard table, and movie library were nice touches, too. Bring along a couple of dog biscuits for Gumbo and Regal, two of the sweetest dogs we've ever met!
Brandywine Valley in the middle of the week. It's the only way to go
My partner talked me into taking a couple of sick days to get out of town and a much needed break from alot of recent stress. As the family work-a-holic, it was for my mental health, so it counts!. It was absolutely and utterly amazing. None of the traffic and crowds, no waiting at the restaurants or standing in lines at the attractions. I'm totally convinced that traveling when everyone else is at work it the way to go from now on. And I'm not waiting till retirement to do it again.
We got to Hamanasett early Monday evening. Ashley and Glenn were there to welcome us and truly made us feel right at home, treating us like old friends even though we'd just met. How completely different from the stress and impersonal attitudes we have gotten while traveling to other places. Glenn even showed us a backroads shortcut into the heart of Philly for an afternoon of site-seeing that got us there in less then 30 minutes. I wish I had known about this place when I was in and out of the city on business; it would have totally changed my negative feelings about corporate travel. This was so much like being at home.
Since we weren't there on a busy weekend, we got a personal tour of all the rooms and to really learn the history of this country estate. The owners have done a fabulous job in keeping all of the sense of history, but making sure we had every modern creature comfort we could ask for.
We stayed in the Carriage House which had a great fireplace to curl up in front of with a book, a personal kitchen if anyone would have felt like cooking and plenty of room to spread out in to relax. It was wonderful being able to have our Labrador travel with us. Sitting out on the porch rocking as I scratched her head, it was hard to remember that we were so close to everything that we wanted to do.
Breakfast was an absolute treat. Candlelight, a gorgeous setting and scrumptous food. I had forgotten how wonderful it felt for someone else to pamper us, anticipating our every need and making us feel so comfortable. Ashley was a wonderful hostess, she soon had us talking with the other guests as though we'd known them for years.
When we finally loaded the car to go touring some of the area wineries before heading home, I hated to leave. I feel like I've made new friends and can't wait to get back.
I only have two complaints with the whole trip - that I waited so long to do something so completely for me and that I didn't plan a few more days, there was so much to do and see.
I've already told the boss I'd be taking some more sick time, even if I had to work some Saturdays to make it up. Who needs to fight the crowds when you can have such an intimate place all to yourselves.
As Good as it Gets
This is a splendid B&B! A beautiful home, great food, attentive hosts and all nestled into a beautiful area...what's NOT to love? We will be highly recommending our "new favorite" B&B to all our friends who travel east.
Brandywine Valley Bed and Breakfast...So Romantic!!
EXCELLENT a TEN Plus Plus! The hosts are delightful and graciously attend to one's every need. The property is second to none with great attention to detail. Very fine antiques are abundant and nicely displayed. (Ashley has talent! I would bet that she has some decorating expertise.) ...Just can't say enough about EVERYTHING...soooooooo ROMANTIC!! The common areas are inviting and comfortable, and our guest room was absolutely perfect. Ashley's breakfast is second to none and is served in a beautifully appointed dining room. OH...and the grounds! ...Heaven on earth. Tucked away on top of a hill, this private setting is the perfect place for a relaxing getaway and yet close to restaurants and numerous attractions for the sightseer. There is something here for everyone. And yes, Brandywine Valley does mean that you can find wineries along the Brandywine Valley Wine Trail. Don't pass this one by...A Completely Wonderful B&B, bounding with exceptional hospitality!
A Wonderful Home away from home : )
I have been to this B+B three times and each time I am so impressed with the gracious hospitality of the owners that I hate to leave and can't wait to go back! This large 'estate home' is filled with beautiful antique wood furniture and gorgeous crown molding but never feels like a museum, instead it is inviting and comfortable, with newly renovated bathrooms and beautiful colors throughout. The owners are also very accomodating of dietary restrictions and preferences, and special requests are cheerfully fulfilled. It is also surrounded by many wonderful little towns and just minutes from major highways while maintaining a secluded woodland feel. My husband and I have 'borrowed' many of our favorites from our trips here, from breakfast recipes to decorating ideas. I would highly recommend this property as your Chester County home away from home!
It is such a pleasure to stay at an inn that delivers on the promise of great hospitality. This charming and beautiful B&B certainly does just that. We had a gorgeous room, impeccably clean with thoughtful amenities, to celebrate our anniversary. The food was excellent and Ashley is the perfect hostess. I am
happy to recommend this delightful B&B to all.
Wow! What a Great B&B!
This is a wonderfully romantic and beautiful inn. The hosts are omnipresent, always going the extra mile to make sure that everything is perfect. We felt pampered. Breakfast was perfect too...much more than one can expect and beautifully presented. I am sure that we will be back again and again.
Perfectly delightful in Every Way
My husband and I really loved this delightful inn. The rooms were elegant and comfortable, the hospitality was warm and welcoming, the food was beautiful and delicious. I feel proud to recommend it to all, 100%.
It was a pleasure staying at Hamanassett B&B during the holiday season. The Christmas decorations were beautiful. The accommodations were outstanding, the atmosphere superb, the breakfast and other goodies delightful, but it is the warmth and caring of the innkeepers that makes this B&B so special. Our only regret, not being able to spend another night.

Two adventures in two days! My kind of weekend! ...actually, I scheduled this "Go Ape" adventure before I found out about the rafting trip..... I survived both, but I need another day before I go back to work.

... friends understood, and can be bad for you or good for you in ways not enumerated before.
All that is true, but then the question is this: Why aren’t more people doing the same with sex?
For here we come to the most fascinating turn of all. One cannot answer the question by arguing that there is no such empirical news about indiscriminately pursued sex and how it can be good or bad for you; to the contrary, there is, and lots of it. After ...
Today had a little something for each of us. We got up early and found a parking lot closer to the beach, unloaded our bikes and headed for the boardwalk. We biked several miles passing stores, restaurants, casinos, and walking piers to the beach. Along the way we passed the neatest thing. It was the World Cup sand sculpting site. Sculptors from all over the world had created original designs and each had been judged. The designs were so intricate ...
... beauty of the island.
Historians will love what the island has to offer. Santo Domingo boasts the largest number of museums in the Caribbean and historical sites rivaling any throughout the Caribbean (as the Colonial City in Santo Domingo is the oldest city of the New World). There are also many historical sites connected to Christopher Columbus and his family in Santo Domingo, including but not limited to the Alcazar de Colon (Columbus ...
... to many Amish farms and Amish communities – it’s very rural and is very interesting to see the Amish go about their daily life (working the fields, driving a horse and buggy etc). We chilled out at their house for the rest of the day and caught up with Diane and Brian (and their little Puggle Harley).
The next day Diane and Brian dropped us off at the small local train station where we took an hour long train ...
