My wife and I were driving west from New Jersey and decided to stop at the last minute. We called BrandyWine just in time for our exit from the expressway... and are so glad we did. George and Katie were the most gracious and friendly of hosts greeting us with smiles and a warm welcome. The house is lovely and our room comfortable over looking the falls. Breakfast... leisurely and delicious. We recommend Brandywine highly.

The setting of the Inn at Brandywine Falls is fantastic. The Falls themself can be heard outside our bedroom window and our favorite part of the day was a morning walk to view the Falls. You can't get any closer to a true National Park experience! But we were disturbed by the seemingly inhumane treatment of the Innkeepers' goats who had great big wheels tied to their necks as a means of keeping them inside a fenced area so they wouldn't eat the landscaping around the Inn. One night they bleated pitiously and I was very sad. The amount if fencing and the gate you must get out of the car to open (it was dark and rainy when we arrived) is also unsettling. We did not get the kind of "welcome home" feel we so often enjoy and look forward to when choosing to stay at a Bed and Breakfast. Sorry, but we will not be back again even though we pass that way quite often and it is a convenient stop off the Interstate.
Animal lovers can relax. Our goats are pets. They are not raised as food for humans. Like all goats, they are escape artists and the thin plywood discs they sometimes wear to keep them off the highways are carefully sized to their stature so they roll as the goat walks or runs. They are decorated as pinwheels so observers may imagine they are moved by the wind. They do not complain about the discs, but they often complain about where they are. We have 3 "salad bars" (pastures) for them, and they regularly complain about being in whichever pasture they are in. So go figure. Oh, the gate. Yes, one must open it and close it after. The purpose is to keep our dog and goats off the road and an estimated 1200 white tail deer outside our oasis.

George and Katie are wonderful Inn Keepers, very helpful in suggesting places for dinner and things to do around the park. The Granary was truely a wonderful private place to stay for the night. We had plenty, of time to explore the falls arcross the yard. Its is also close enough that i could get up before breakfast and go for a 4 mile hike. I was looking for the huge snake!!! lol you'll have to ask George to explain that over your breakfast. He LOVES to tell the story.

We had an amazing stay in the Granary. George and Katie are very gracious hosts. The breakfast was very good and we met some very nice people. You can socialize and still have time to yourself. It is evident that George and Katie truly do enjoy being hosts of there B and B. This was a very relaxing and great place to get away from the hustle of the everyday worrd. The Cuyahoga Valley National Park is a very beautifull place.
