June 17 (Day 48) DC-New Market, MD-Annapolis, MD We were supposed to travel to New Market for an overnight stay at a small antiquing town northwest of Baltimore, as we drove north from DC, the rains began to fall more steadily and the prospect of a rainy day trapped in a small B&B with nothing but antique shops nearby sounded less appealing, so …
... I couldn't get to Ohio from Portland instead I had to go to Philadelphia to get there. So I stopped off in Philadelphia long enough for a Philly cheese steak roll - surprisingly good considering the ingredients are cheapest cuts of a cow you can get away with calling steak and a liquid version of the plastic cheese you put in burgers. Then I headed off to Akron, ...
... I guess I waited about an hour and finally shared a cab with two other guys and then the driver took me to my hotel. I met Larry, my roommate, who drove down from Atlanta and arrived shortly after I did. I had a Pizza, yes a whole Pizza, at the bar of the Hotel and then went to bed as we were to start the Cruise the next day. Ok, that is all ...
... themselves upon while taking in all the wonderful architecture around them. Within the confines of the yard, the inner walls of City Hall was almost as miraculous as the outside. Six or seven stories of windows and columns and small statues surrounded us from all directions, looking down upon us sternly. A giant compass of gold, white, and black was paint on the floor. I had read that there once was a bronze compass sitting upon the grounds ...
... and I thank her for it, all the while noticing a few sly smiles on the faces of the other passengers.
The bus passes through more districts filled with restaurants and other assorted small stores. Start going into a more industrialized area, but it nonetheless still filled with people and some nightlife, just less than South Street. We reach Girard Street and then Frankford. I get off at the Frankford stop, right next to "Johnny Branda's" a ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Inn at Montchanin Village
Great place for small meetings
My college sorority reunion had a marvelous stay at the inn recently. The food, service, and accomodations were excellent.
We Loved Inn at Montchanin Village
The staff and ambience at Inn was great. The staff at the Krazy Kat restaurant was great and did everything to make me and my fiance happy. We had a superior suite with a private garden,private porch, fireplace, refrigerator, dinnerware, jacuzzi and stand up shower. If you want to get a superior suite without spending the $375; purchase a suite at $239 and then ask for an upgrade when you reach inn to a superior suite if available. I would highly recommend for couples
Just recently stayed over the Labor Day weekend. Had a very nice time and found the staff helpful. The grounds are beautiful, very peaceful and quiet. Had dinner and breakfast at Krazy Kats and it was top notch! The food was excellent and the service for dinner was better then breakfast.
Not a very good stay
Very disappointed in the property and the service. Not at all what I was expecting from reputable organization such as Small Luxury. Would never recommend or return which is a shame due to the proximity to Winterthur. Truly a shame...
I recently stayed at the Inn at Montchanin in conjunction with business in the greater Wilmington area: I had once previously dined at the property's Krazy Kats restaurant, so I was familiar with the Inn's beautiful facilities and anticipated a great stay. What a disappointment. While this may be a great get-away spot for the leisure traveler, it is nearly impossible to conduct any business while staying there. Clearly the proprietors of the Inn have not embraced 21st century technology: no high-speed internet on the property, slow fax service, no reliable business services, not to mention a web site that does not take reservations. The one positive experience was the gracious and professional assistance I received from the Krazy Kats young restaurant manager who knocked himself out to keep my business associates happy. So, if you stay at the Inn, leave your laptop and cell phones behind: otherwise you will be frustrated.
This is a great Inn
My husband and I spent a night in Dec. at this inn and we were delighted with our accommodations. Our room was large and comfortable and had a fireplace and a snack kitchen. Both breakfast and dinner at the Crazy Cat Restaurant were excellent.
My husband just spent our fourth anniversary at the Inn at Montchanin Village. It was an incredible experience. Our suite was perfect - we loved the fireplace! Our package included champagne and chocolates. It also included breakfast at their restaurant, Krazy Kats. I ate the most incredible Grand Marnier, Raspberry, White Chocolate French Toast. The service was friendly and helpful, and the tea and coffee in the lobby were lovely. We hope to return as soon as we possibly can!
My wife and I have stayed at the Inn twice. Both times it was a fantastic, relaxing experience. The grounds are beautifully landscaped. The staff is super friendly and efficient. The rooms are comfortable, spacious and nicely decorated. Their restaurant, Krazy Kat's, is a wonderful place to eat.
My husband I stayed here just this past weekend on the night of our wedding. This is a true gem of a place with unique, tasteful furnishings and ALL amenities. This inn is run very well and they don't miss any details. The value is high. Wish we could have stayed longer and we are already talking about when we can return. Loved it!
Relaxing, and the little things made the difference
My husband and I stayed at the Montchanin Inn last year, and I we are about to make reservations to stay there again. Many of the buildings on the property used to be part of a village (hence the name).
Everything is custom and special - custom (delicious) chocolates on the pillow, custom tile in the marble bathroom in our room, unique furniture in each room. Great, efficient, polite service. The Inn is a good deal for the money, also. I have paid more for accommodations that were nowhere near this nice. I am really looking forward to staying there again.
