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.

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!

The warmth of the historic home was soothing, the rooms were beautiful, cozy and the gas fireplace warmed the room. I loved seeing the flames and the shadows of the lights from the flames illuminated on the walls. The staff was kind, warm, welcoming and happy. You feel like a part of the family. My husband and I played scrabble in the kitchen at night, we played pool in the parlor and I played the piano. I had a hectic 2 months on long island and this weekend vacation allowed us to decompress, calm down and be happy surrounded by a utopia and many interesting things to do not far from the B&B. We sat on the lovely grand terrace while watching young adults sitting in the adirondack chairs on the property around the fire pit. Laughs and conversation were heard and the cool breeze swept through the property and the flames of the fire pit blew in the breeze and looked like fireflies in flight. I have booked several cottages and rooms in the main house for Labor Day weekend for my family and friends to come. My husband and I truly love Sweatwater Farm and its staff and thank them so much for making our stay a memorable and special one. The vineyards on the property were beautiful and lush, and the wine tasting was fun! The staff explained with knowledge, the types of wines that we tasted and we bought a bottle back to the house with us and drank in the privacy of our warm room. Thank you Thank you!!!

Susan and Roger from Boston, MA were delighted with the accommodations at Sweetwater Farms. Would highly recommend this spot if you want a tranquil experience.

I stayed here three nights as part of a work conference and long getaway weekend, and the entire grounds are absolutely charming -- definitely off the beaten path but has everything I needed. The bed and linens were amazing, the room was immaculate -- with a working gas fireplace! -- and breakfast each morning was delicious (eggs benedict, pear pancakes, and waffles, made to order!). The only thing I would change is the rain showerhead, but that's a personal preference (I like more water pressure). They graciously accommodated my late arrival, and I will definitely be returning for another long weekend.
