A Peaceful Visit

5 on May 14, 2014

We stayed in the Grand Master Suite. The view from the room was so many trees and wonderful flowers to boot. There is even access to a sundeck which adjoins an area with a table and chairs to sit at and enjoy the serenity, overlooking a wonderful swimming pool. The bed was super comfortable and the accommodations were spacious. The décor is a mix of antique and eclectic which blended nicely. The breakfasts were scrumptious, offering fresh fruit salad bowls, fresh baked goods and eggs cooked anyway you want along with great bacon and sausage available to boot. On Sundays, they have a delicious eggs benedict offered up. They even had homemade gravlax with bagels, cream cheese, tomatoes and red onion. For us, the best part of Alpenhof are the people who run it, Judy, Roland and Roland's wife Anh who helps with the breakfasts. I felt as comfortable there, as I do at home. You won't meet kinder, warmer and more helpful people. They truly care about your comfort and your needs. They make it very difficult to leave, because we wanted to stay longer. We feel that it's a great value for the money and we will be coming back again and again to enjoy the B&B as well as Philadelphia.

Alpenhof B&B is a Treat!

Fantastic and Romantic B&B

4.0 on December 06, 2013

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.

Love this place!

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!

Best Bed and Breakfast!!! Don't miss a stay here!

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!
