Elegant place, perfect location, wonderful food

5 on September 05, 2017

We drove up from Annapolis specifically to spend some time at the Brandywine Valley Art Museum to visit the Wyeth displays, homes and studios. This B&B was just 10 minutes from the museum and we gave it a shot based on the reviews and we are so glad we did. Historic and elegant home, in a setting that seems farther away from civilization than it really is. We had the large room with the antique 10-foot bed and a nice "balcony" overlooking the woods on which we had wine and a snack upon arrival, then played some pool and sipped a sherry. Stayed two nights, both nights the innkeepers took care of reservations (they know everyone), the first night at Brandywine Prime, a fantastic steak place, and a very nice Italian restaurant the second night. The innkeepers own a horse farm right next door so if you choose you can feed them or play with them or I suppose ride I'm not sure. And being a B&B of course breakfast was featured and what breakfasts they were, delicious ... first was a poached pear with cheese and cream, then a nice omelet and sides; second was blueberry upside down pancakes, a new one on me but so delicious. Next time we are within 30 minutes of Hamanassett we will definitely stay again.

We highly recommend staying at the Hamanassett B&B

4.0 on January 22, 2017

We stayed at Hamanassett from January 19-23, 2017 for the first time and do plan to return for more visits. I was searching for a B&B in the area and am delighted to find this Old English Manor style B&B here. It is huge, gorgeous, exquisitely appointed. The rooms are all beautiful with attached baths. The main house has three levels by staircase (very elegant). There are separate cottages, as well. And a horse barn and pasture. Its magical. The rooms are large, very well appointed and stocked with the finest linens and toiletries. The innkeepers are a delight and went out of their way to accommodate all of our needs. The staff is unobtrusive and delightful. Breakfast is gourmet and to die for. We received a surprise upgrade on our room when they found out it was a celebration visit. The innkeepers, Ashley and Glenn, could not have gone out of their way for us any more than they did. Our stay felt like home and I don't look forward to leaving. I highly recommend Hamanassett, especially if you are looking for this style B&B. It is PERFECT for an entire wedding or corporate stay (I am a former meeting planner). Don't miss this magical place.

Intimate Wedding Package and Family Weekend Stay

5 on June 29, 2014

My family and I had an amazing stay at Hamanassett. My new husband and I arranged to get married there through their intimate wedding package option and with that took the opportunity for most of our family to stay on site with us. The accommodation was lovely, the beds were comfortable, the breakfasts were divine and the service was exceptional. We felt that Ashley and Glenn were very accommodating and made our wedding day very memorable. The grounds were beautiful and even though we live close by we feel we were truly transported somewhere else. The small touches add to the stay as well and I know we will be going back routinely.

Fabulous Experience

5 on December 11, 2013

Luxurious accommodations, warm welcoming hosts, elegant home and grounds. Accommodated special dietary needs with no problem, perfect balance of helpfulness and respecting privacy. A perfect choice for those looking for a rejuvenating getaway.

Can't wait to return

5 on August 30, 2013

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.

The Place in Greater Philadelphia

5 on August 01, 2012

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?!

Attention to Detail

5 on June 18, 2012

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.

Exceptional place to stay

5 on September 19, 2011

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.

Wonderful way to spend our 30th Anniversary!

5 on April 26, 2011

We treated each other to a romantic getaway at this amazing bed and breakfast as our 30th Wedding Anniversary just so happened to be Easter Sunday this year. A very warm "thank you" to Glenn and Ashley and to their staff who are just as wonderful. The house is clean and inviting and the breakfasts are made with love. There is so much to see and do in the area and coming home to our beautifully appointed room where fresh baked cookies and a nice cup of coffee awaited was a very much appreciated bonus. We are sure to be back and will bring our friends with us.

Great Weekend Retreat!

4.0 on April 09, 2011

My husband and I recently spent two wonderful evenings at Hamanassett B & B. We had planned on visiting the orchid show at Longwood Gardens, and the proximity of this inn to the Gardens made it very convenient. Upon arrival, we were met by Glenn, who gave us a tour of the inn, explained the few basic rules, and made sure we were comfortably entrenched in our gorgeous room (with one of the largest bathrooms I have ever experienced in a B&B!). He gave us some great recommendations for dining, attractions to visit, and directions to same. The next morning we met Ashley, who served amazing choices of breakfast. We dined family style with the other guests, and had the opportunity to meet some very pleasant and interesting folks. Glenn and Ashley couldn't have been any more helpful, and we certainly plan on keeping their Inn at the top of our to-do-again list!
