tep back to the unhurried pace of the past while enjoying the modern
conveniences of today in a Brandywine Valley Bed and Breakfast. The Brandywine Valley region is an important piece
of our nation's history. In fact, many of our member B&B's are located
on property that was part of a land grant from William Penn, the founder of
The Brandywine with its fields, woodlands,
and waterpower, is a unique place that has fostered natural and human
On this land battles were fought, and
fortunes were made. Out of those fortunes and a commitment to stewardship
have sprung some of the world's most fascinating attractions and large
tracts of preserved open spaces. We have four seasons of breathtaking
gardens, elaborate mansions, world-class museums, scenic beauty and many
cultural points of interest along the way.
Aside from our close proximity to such
world-class attractions as Longwood
Gardens and Winterthur
Museum, the Brandywine Valley
innkeepers offer an experience unlike any other in the valley. Sip
afternoon tea on a quiet verandah, sleep in an antique bed, curl up with a
cozy quilt, relax in front of a warm fireplace, soak in a luxurious jacuzzi
bath, take an evening stroll through fragrant gardens, and indulge in a
hearty breakfast. Choose from a variety of architecturally styled homes
that have been lovingly restored to welcome you. We have federal style
mansions, farmhouses, Victorian homes and Georgian manor houses.
We'll help to make your stay in the
valley a pleasurable and memorable experience as you enjoy the personalized
service that an innkeeper provides. After an uplifting and fun day
exploring the valley, we can recommend
restaurants that cater to your tastes and preferences. Whether you want a
gourmet restaurant or a casual local favorite, you'll find it within reach
of your B&B.
