The B&B Innkeeper was very professional, courteous, kind, and helpful. You can have as much or as little interaction with her and the guests as you'd like. Media, PA is beautiful! Great restaurants, town, and state park near by. Highly recommended.

During our travels from FL to PA last month, my husband surprised me with one of the most beautiful bed and breakfasts I have ever laid my eyes upon! We had the opportunity to stay in the cottage for 4 nights, and I wish we were still there. The property is gorgeous with beautiful gardens and stone walkways. We enjoyed the cool nights sitting outside on our private patio overlooking PA woods. The cottage itself is clean and marvolus with a home style/romantic feeling; and the bed is so comfortable that we even bought the same mattress when wee returned to FL! The main house where breakfast is served is truley enchanting; from the history of the home to the decor, every detail down to the tableware . Judy is the most wonderful host and AMAZING COOK! Thank you for opening your home to us! Vielen Dank für Ihre wunderbare Gastfreundscaft!

I recently stayed at Alpenhof (Media, PA) for a three night stay while attending a friend's wedding. Roland and Judy are the consumate hosts - as others have mentioned, the gardens are spectacular and and decor amazing. This 1700's barn turned into a charming little private get away is warm and inviting; a peaceful retreat! Judy helped in every possible way from getting me to various wedding places as well as wonderful eateries. She is a delightful hostess and was simply a joy! By the way, she makes a wonderful veggie omlet!! Of course, one of my favorite - Clyde and Abbey, the canine hosts...If you want to spend time for a simple get away or for a special event, let Alpenhof take you away!

Someone has gone to a lot of trouble to provide a thoughtful, comfortable, charming, and different place to stay. Our room, the master suite, was large, with comfy bed and linens, and well equipped with all sorts of comforts to make our one-night stay pleasant. The grounds of the home is beautifully landscaped, and the pool looks quite inviting. Breakfast was delicious and the home-baked cinnamon buns were a real treat. My only caveat was that our room (and it appeared to be only our room) had a very strong industrial air freshener type of scent throughout, including the bathroom. When I stepped out of our room, the scent disappeared. I could not figure out where the air freshener scent was coming from, but kinda assumed that it must have been masking up a mold/water leak odor, or some other unavoidable situation. The scent gave me a big headache from the moment I stepped into the room. The scent was quite strong and even when I returned home, our bags and clothing still had the scent lingering in them. I'm sorry to say that I would have found Alpenhof to be wonderful, but this put a damper on what would otherwise have been a lovely night.
To Whom it may concern: We want to thank you for your stay at Alpenhof. I wish to apologize for the "Strong Air Freshener Smell" that was in fact the bathroom cleaner known as "FABULOSO". We use this product for its all-purpose cleaning versatility and effectiveness. We especially like this cleaner because once the bathroom is used, the scent usually disappears. We recommend that if individuals are sensitive to industrial cleaners to tell us at the time of their reservation and we will gladly switch to a vinegar and baking soda solution for cleaning with little or no smell. We are sorry for the headache you said you had because of the smell; but want to assure you that it was not a masking scented air freshener to cover mold or mildew. I handle all the cleaning and care of the rooms here and I assure you of that!!! Please....next time...."air" your complaint to us in person first....so we can help before you express yourself in a review with false information.
