This place is amazing... the staff, the owner, the grounds, the room, the food, the wine and so on... My wife and I celebrated our 12th anniversary here and we were greeted as if we were family here... We met some other couples that were staying there as well and just felt right at home... We have been planning our next trip and stay already... This is a must on your list of vineyards and B&B's... AAA+++
we chose the inn at grace winery to serve as our "getting ready" room for the bride, bridesmaids, and moms. we also wanted to stay here on our wedding night to have a little space from our guests who were all at a hotel 10 minutes away. we chose the brandywine cottage for its calming blue and white decor and loads of natural light. unfortunately, the AC unit in our room started leaking on friday night (our wedding was saturday evening). we had all started getting ready for an hour or two before they had someone come take a look. the AC was broken and they had to turn it off. it was going to get toasty in there with 10 ladies in total plus the curling iron and all lights on for makeup. they offered to move us next door to a room with working AC (hemphill), which we agreed to b/c what choice did we have? this room was nice but the colors were a homely tan and red and there was only one window in the front of the room. the room was much smaller than the brandywine so we were all a bit cramped. it was really unfortunate that we didn't get to take our getting ready photos in the room that i had picked out and we had not as great lighting for our hair and makeup as i had hoped. my husband was confused as well b/c we were in a different room than the one he'd woken up in. i think my husband (yay!) has been in contact with them regarding our woes and hopefully we'll be able to work something out. the property is REALLY lovely and tranquil and we had actually contemplated canceling our Philly hotel and extending our stay here but I was just so saddened by the change of rooms. i'd love to go back just to hang out (it was such a whirlwind weekend) and enjoy the main house and common areas. i never made it to breakfast but my husband said the homemade pastries were very tasty.
This is just a beautiful place! The grounds are well kept, easy to traverse, and spectacular in the fall. The rooms are very comfortable, spotless, and cozy. The food is amazing. Turkey stew with root vegetables was a perfect lunch on a cold, rainy day. There are so many breakfast options, eggs, pastries, dairy, and breads. The staff is knowledgeable, friendly, courteous , and helpful. Wholeheartedly recommend The Inn at Grace Winery
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.
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.
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!!!
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.
We were so thrilled to find this gem, and it was less than 15 minutes from home! This is the second holiday we've spent at Sweetwater, and what a joy it is to be out on the farm! Farrell and Sean, as well as Alex and Christopher and the entire staff, are exceptional, always happy to see you, and help make your stay memorable. The grounds are so beautiful - we took a walk around the vineyards, fed the horses, enjoyed a tasting in the winery - there's nothing like nature to bring you peace of mind and slow it all down. The daily breakfast is fantastic, with a new scrumptious baked good each morning, and a delightfully new entree each day. For Easter Sunday, we had breakfast delivered to our room, and what a treat that was! Be sure to make time to visit the well-appointed library and cozy up in the window seat to enjoy the terrific selection. Don't hesitate to stay at Sweetwater if you find yourself in the area - you won't be disappointed!
My girlfriend and I really enjoyed our stay and are planning on returning in the future. We did the wine tasting at Grace Winery on our first night before heading out to dinner. Everyone was very knowledgeable and willing to answer questions about the property and the history of the winery. The B&B was very nicely decorated and maintained. The staff was very friendly and breakfast was great. The room was clean and well appointed.
We stayed in the Gardener's Cottage - has a gas fireplace. Fantastic stay. Relaxed in record time. The owner and staff are wonderful. Setting is lovely. You will not be disappointed! We loved the animals - dogs, horses, and sheep. Do yourself a favor and visit Sweetwater Farm.
Sweetwater Farm offers its guests an idyllic setting, complete with winery on site, grazing farm animals, swimming pool. Although you can stay in the inn and have breakfast on the patio, you can also stay in one of the separate cottages. We value our privacy, so we rented a cottage. We wished it had come with a refrig, but we easily walked up to the inn to get ice. We chose to eat our breakfasts in town, but the breakfasts being served looked delicious.
This place was much better than we expected. Friendly innkeepers and service was outstanding. The area is beautiful filled with a lot of history, great parks and museums. The area also has great restaurants. I defitnately recommend this place for anyone! Before we left we were already planning our next trip there.
From the welcome note (we had arrived fairly late in the day), to the four kinds of homemade cookies waiting for us, to the pre-warmed bedroom we felt welcomed and pampered throughout our entire stay. Breakfast with fresh juice, coffee, scones, salmon and much more was filling and delicious. Judi, one of the many wonderful staff there, was extremely help and pleasant in discussing sites to see, the facilities at Sweetwater Farm, and people to get to know. The grounds include wonderful facilities for a wedding (Nancy and I are part time photographers). There is ample room in the very updated barn (central air conditioning and an elevator!) for very large celebrations. We enjoyed the various rolling hill views which included ponds, vineyards, and even Bishop, the beautiful horse used for carriage rides, as he breathed clouds of vapor in the beautiful morning sunlight. Quiet and restful, yet invigorating. Chris & Nancy Cameronia.com
We've come back to Sweetwater four times during the past few years and will continue to do so. The ambience of the Inn, the beautiful setting, and the companion Grace Winery are simply delightful. The staff is professional, yet always welcoming, gracious and friendly. The family history associated with the Inn just adds to its charm. Breakfast (like the Lemon Ricotta Pancakes) are great! Sweetwater is highly recommended.
Sweetwater is beautiful, relaxing and a fantastic place to get away from it all. It has a great location as well, there are wineries nearby, great places to eat among recreational things to do like longwood gardens or the visiting the nearby mansion. I've lost count how many times I've been there and will continue to return! Sean and Farrell also great. Love this place!!
