Our 1734 Manor home is perched on the crest of a 50 acre farm and is part of an original land grant from William Penn. Conveniently located 30 miniutes southwest of Philadelphia, in the heart of the historic Brandywine Vally, Sweetwater Farm features 14 guest rooms - three in the original 1734 Quaker Farmhouse and 4 in the more formal 1815 Georgian wing with fireplaces and canopied beds. There are also 7 guest cottages which are pet & child friendly. In-ground pool, jacuzzi and fitness center are on property.

The people who run this bed and breakfast are absolutely friendly and accommodating. However, I asked for a sheet and towel change and asked them to come as soon as possible since we'd be out of the room -- but when we got back (about 50-60 minutes later), nothing had been changed. I went to ask the same thing again, left for the same amount of time, came back and nothing was changed. About 10 minutes later, the cleaning people came -- so I left the room for 20 minutes. That whole scenario was kind of ridiculous. The food and wine they serve is fresh, organic, and delicious! The bathroom was really nice but the TV, remote, and phone were less than ideal. We didn't care so much about watching television but we did try to use the phone to call them about changing sheets and towels, and the phone just didn't work at all. They apologized for it and we got it all sorted out (as I said before, they were very friendly and kind) but it was still slightly annoying. Aside from the negatives, the property is absolutely stunning -- my wife and I took several walks around the place during our stay and it was very refreshing. Highly recommend this bed and breakfast.

We visited friends who were celebrating their wedding anniversary. We had lunch, swam in the delightful pool, enjoyed the flowers, gardens, wine, and lunch. What a place! clean and calming!

Lovely property, well maintained and pleasant helpful staff. My room was well appointed and large. The bed was one I wished to take home with me, very comfortable. Great location, near many attractions in this beautiful countryside. Loved having the honor system for our nightly wine sojourn and having drinks on the large covered porch evoked memories of a Southern novel. Hope to return in the near future.

Sweetwater Farm is a lovely B&B. It is set in a gorgeous property. The view from the breakfast room of the beautiful fields with horses is stunning. The room I stayed in was stylish and comfortable. The breakfasts were delicious.

My wife and I received a friendly welcome from all the people we met at Sweetwater. Everybody treated us as most welcome guests and the accommodation and dining exceeded our expectations. We were recommended to stay at the Farm by family and we would certainly recommend Sweetwater to all our friends. We hope that the people at Sweetwater continue to do well as they offer an outstanding service and value.

I was blown away by the beauty, quality, and attention to detail of the decor. As a design professional, I marveled at the clever and comfortable uses of unique spaces and the well-chosen antiques. Sweetwater Farm is a tribute to talented and passionate innkeepers.

Stayed at SWF for a long weekend and enjoyed the comfort, quiet, and atmosphere of this fine B&B. Breakfasts were made to order and excellent. We'd definitely come back.

We had an outstanding stay at the Sweetwater Farm. We arrived late, and the innkeeper was very accomodating in leaving the key and directions to our room. The room was in great condition, very clean and comfortable. The only issue we had was that we didn't know where breakfast was served the first morning! It all worked out fine though - and the food was excellent. The wines were excellent and everyone we talked to were very friendly! All in all, an excellent place to stay!
