My husband and I spent our anniversary weekend here. Glen, Ashley and Corinne were fabulous. We stayed in the Windsor room which was extremely nice. The building and grounds are beautiful and welcoming and close enough to many sites such as Longwood Gardens and Winterthur. Breakfast was a culinary treat and my husband thoroughly enjoyed the homemade chocolate cookies each day. Looking forward to returning to this lovely B&B.

For the last two weeks in May we had the great fortune to stay in the Meadows Cottage at the Hamanassett Bed and Breakfast near Media, PA. We needed to find a furnished rental/lease that would accommodate two adults and two older yellow labradors. Ashley and Glenn Mon go out of their way to attend to the needs of all guests. On a few occasions, B&B staff member Corine was made available to feed and walk our dogs. One day, yours truly allowed his wife to take off in the running Sienna without the key for the keyless ignition. A simple inquiry to Glenn evolved quickly into Glenn providing me with the keys to his LR3 Land Rover. Glenn didn’t even give it a second thought. There are many sights and wonderful place to eat in the Brandywine Valley. Glenn and Ashley are on top of them all and enjoy special relationships with many of the locations. Our time was otherwise occupied but we’ll look to them for help the next trip up. The cable TV and WiFi worked perfectly. There wasn’t any appliance, pot, pan or kitchen utensil we could think of that they didn’t have. Just bring groceries and you’re good to go. My one disappointment was that we only managed to make it up to the main B&B twice for breakfast. A reviewer from the New York Times had highlighted their breakfast and he was right on. Our last Sunday there we enjoyed fresh waffles with melted butter and Pecan Bourbon Maple Syrup. Ashley gave us the recipe. Hamanassett is a perfect place to come for a romantic weekend getaway from New England or Washington DC. Glenn and Ashley host special getaway packages that with room and board included are a steal. Periodically they have cooking classes run by a professional chef. We will definitely go back again, with or without the dogs. And if your travels take you to the greater Philadelphia area and you’re looking for fully furnished accommodations why on earth would you go to a Residence Inn or one of those suite hotels?!

I had the most wonderful night and was blown away by the attention to detail. Ashley and Glenn Mon have certainly taken the fine art of hosting to a higher level. Hamanassett is located close to many wonderful sites and attractions, but we choose to spend the evening on our balcony enjoy the quiet splendor of the evening sun, and the view of a lovely garden and coy fish pond. The food was wonderful, and when you take into account everything that you get as a guest of Hamanassett, the price is truly a steal.

We celebrated our 50th wedding anniversary at Hamanassett. Ashley and glenn could not have been more gracious or more helpful. Our room was beautiful, breakfast was fantastic, and we enjoyed the game room and the grounds. We have stayed at a number of very nice B&Bs in the past, but this was truly exceptional.

This is the time to visit the Brandywine Valley. Weather will be nice this weekend and you can visit the only US exhibit of the Costumes of Downton Abbey at Winterthur before it is booked up.

We have different priced rooms but all are discounted this weekend. This special may not be used with any other special or with gift certificates.
Hamanassett has been named one of the most romantic B&Bs in North America by a leading travel magazine so we definitely know how set the tone for your special getaway. Our package includes a bottle of champagne, white or red wine or nonalcoholic champagne, a dozen roses in a vase to keep, a box of handmade Swiss chocolate truffles, two souvenir Hamanassett champagne glasses to take home, and your bed turned down and strewn with silk rose petals.
