On your first visit to the area, you’d be excused for thinking that traveling into Pennsylvania’s Brandywine Valley is like stepping into the past. Rolling green hills and lush pastures dotted with villages, vineyards, and private estates are the primary feature. In between, you’ll find upscale museums, fine dining, and historical attractions. Right in the middle of it all is this fantastic Pennsylvania Inn for sale, one of the finest in the region.
Originally built as an estate home in the early 1800s, this gorgeous Inn combines historical elegance with all the modern touches guests expect. Upon arriving, your guests will first notice the Main House’s elegant décor and period architecture, which has only been minimally changed over the years – so little, in fact, that the inn is registered on the National Register of Historic Places.
Plenty of comfort is afforded in all of the Inn’s 13 guest rooms: five in the main house, four in the Springhouse, and four more in the Carriage House, or either of the two Carriage House suites. Every room has a private bath, and many of the rooms have private decks and patios overlooking the Inn’s five-acre property. Some rooms also feature fireplaces for the colder months, and every room comes with private heat and A/C, wireless Internet access, and satellite TV.
The surrounding area’s wineries, historic sites, fine restaurants, and cultural attractions speak to the diversity of entertainment visitors enjoy in the Brandywine Valley. The region’s vineyards are some of the most popular tourist destinations – with more than a dozen local vineyards and winemakers to visit, your guests could embark on a wine tour weekend with your Inn as a central home base. Chaddsford Winery and Penns Woods Winery are a few of the most popular.
If a break from wine tasting is needed, your guests can also visit the Valley’s museums and historical attractions, including the renowned Winterthur (pronounced “winter-tour”) Museum and Garden, featuring an amazing collection of American décor and antiques; and the gorgeous Brandywine River Museum, which showcases the art of the Wyeth family of artists.
Outdoor-oriented guests can also plan adventures on the river the region is named after, the Brandywine. Canoes, kayaks, and inner tubes are all available for rent, for floating or paddling the river. Along the river, paddlers will see interesting sights with histories dating back to the Revolutionary War and, more likely than not, wildlife.
At the end of the day your guests can wind down in one of the area’s many fine restaurants, such as Brandywine Prime, a steak and sea house that is a favorite with the locals, or the whimsically decorated Krazy Kat’s, which serves contemporary American and French cuisine just across the Pennsylvania-Delaware border.
Thanks to its pleasant surroundings and proximity to urban areas, this Pennsylvania Inn for sale is popular for weekend getaways and mid-week business travel. If it has charmed you, too, contact Inn Partners today to learn more about this Inn or our other Inns for sale across the country.
