We just celebrated my husband's birthday- he had an wonderful in room massage when we arrived- prearranged by Louisa when I called for our reservation with champagne-then off to a casual delicious dinner 2 minutes down the road at Bowman's Tavern- where there is live music every night! Loved our Pond View room with French doors to the back of the Inn-serene private setting (it was winter-I'm the view is even more beautiful in full bloom). Breakfast in our room the next morning was delicious & special! Lots of sides & you could tell the eggs were fresh! I even took a bubble bath in the big jacuzzi tub- everything was very clean & comfortable. We checked out & went touring around the area settling in New Hope for a late lunch. The perfect getaway & we only live 40 minutes away! We will return.
My wife and I stayed here in February. It was beautiful, even in the winter (although you could tell that the place must be gorgeous in the summer). We stayed in the Pond Vista room. We had planned to stay for two nights but decided to stay an extra because we wanted to have more time in the room and on the grounds. The whole stay was very romantic. We loved our room, but also felt like we weren't bound to it and found many beautiful places in the common areas to hang out, play board games, soak in nature, etc. Louisa and Mike were so welcoming. The food was amazing both for breakfast at the Inn and down the road at the Tavern. It was just a short drive into New Hope, Lambertville or Peddler's Village so there was plenty to do and lots of great places to eat—but we found ourselves wanting to spend most of our time at the beautiful Inn. Other places in the area are a bit cheaper, but we felt like the Inn was worth every penny! We highly recommend the Inn to anyone who wants a nice romantic getaway.
We celebrated my husbands birthday weekend at The Inn at Bowmans Hill. From the moment we pulled up to the front gates to the time we left was amazing !! Our hosts couldn't do enough for us and we're VERY accommodating. They truly helped make this an unforgettable weekend. We stayed in " the tower suite" it was amazing and worth every $. Dinner was down the road at " Bowmans tavern " it was a great restaurant, very cozy. Food was delicious. They even have live music 7 nights a week We will definitely be going back to both places !!!
I stayed at the Wayne B&B while I was at company training for a week since I wanted a more homey experience, and that was exactly what I got! Bob and Traudi were so incredibly warm! The house is gorgeous, the surrounding neighborhood lovely, and the hospitality at the Wayne B&B was unparalleled! I highly recommend it!
My partner and I recently stayed at the lovely b&b The Candle House. The friendliness of Denise was so genuine. She and her husband have a very classy establishment. Love all the charm of Texas throughout the Inn. Highly recommend it for a wonderful stay. We'll be back..
Found this little charmer last minute when needing a room close to the Philadelphia Marathon. Hotel rooms were overpriced and found this "best kept secret" in Germantown area of Philly. Our hostess was gracious , intelligent and recommended several modes of transportation to get to the marathon. I would definitely stay here every time I would need a place to stay anywhere near Philly!
As sophisticated travelers we sought a perfect inn near Bryn Mawr, and we found it in the Wayne B&B Inn. Innkeeper Bob Thomason could not be more welcoming, warm, competent or thoughtful, and "our" room, the Wicker Room, is a haven of peace that feels like a dreamy return to a country house with gardens and comfort in a time gone by. Furnished in white with cozy touches and an enormous, downy king bed, the room has two walls of almost floor to ceiling windows looking out on gardens in which birds sing. Spring in that room, with a blooming mature pink magnolia bursting right outside the window, alone is worth a trip. The Inn is beautiful, furnished carefully with antiques and conveniences with an eye towards comfort and welcome for its guests. Max, the rotund English bulldog whose bed is in front of the fireplace and who sports pajamas on occasion, is always ready to chase sticks with delight or lean in for pets and lovin'. Breakfast is gracious and Bob is happy to accommodate any request. The Inn is 20 minutes from Bryn Mawr and 25 minutes from downtown Philadelphia. Wayne is choc-o-bloc with cute local restaurants (try the Diner for a blast from the past!) and stores. Welcome home.
Fairville Inn stands apart for its numerous strengths. We are looking forward to our fourth stay there in just a few weeks. The Inn's bucolic setting is quiet and relaxing, yet it sits within easy driving distance of all the most popular Brandywine Valley attractions. The accommodations are comfortable and well-appointed; the Inn offers an excellent breakfast and afternoon tea; and most importantly, owners Laura and Rick Carro and their always-helpful staff are a dedicated team.
We enjoyed relaxing at this inn for 3 nights while touring the Brandywine Valley. Room was cozy with a nice view of the property and cleaned fully each day. Breakfast had three nice options each day and was served in a lovely dining area in the historic house, however the staff could use a bit of training.
We stayed in the regent room for 2 nights. The room was spacious and the beds were very comfortable. The breakfasts were good served buffet style. The owners were friendly and offered help. This is a residential neighborhood. There are restaurants 2 blocks away. The trolley passes right in front of the inn so you can park your car and take it downtown. Very convenient. Overall the stay was great.
We loved it here. It was a beautiful old mansion with two adorable cats and and great morning conversation with the hostess and guests. All the breakfast fruit, preservatives, and delicious breads was also great.
We went to visit our son who attends Rowan University about 15 min from The Candle House Inn. The room was large and clean and modern. The property was on a farm with horses grazing and it was a very bucolic setting. They served breakfast in the morning which was delicious. The Inn keepers Denice and Tom are lovely people and we will be going back again.
Once again we were visiting this lovely place. There is a special atmosphere and friendliness in this house. We just wanted to visit the hosts again. And it was again a fantastic experience. We can only recommend to visit this lovely and cozy house with very very nice rooms. And a delicious breakfast. We came from Denmark.
Marney was very nice and gave us a warm welcome by introducing the area and the city. She prepared a wonderful breakfast every morning and talked a lot about her life and the neighbourhood. The room was small but very nice with lovely furniture and sweet decoration. We really enjoyed our stay at Marneys :)
It is a beautiful old house with so many decorations such old vases, pictures and lamps. The owner is a gentleman and the breakfast was typical American style. It was a very precious experience to stay in such a house.
This is our second stay at the the Gables. The property is well-managed and also well appointed with a fabulous collection of 19th and early 20th century antique furniture, glassware, lamps, and silver pieces. Breakfast was home-cooked and tasty. Location on a quiet street not far from Univ of Penn and only a $8 Uber ride to downtown was excellent. There are also many restaurants in the area. And there's an intelligent poodle should you wish some canine companionship.
Everything was wonderful! The room was beautiful and clean. Our host and hostess were so kind and welcoming! The food was delicious! My daughter and I enjoyed our stay so much! I highly recommend!
What a lovely B&B owned by friendly and gracious hosts who are knowledgeable about the area, and enjoy being helpful. We stayed during the hot summer and the pool was refreshing, the gardens delightful. Please listen to Bob & Trudy's dining suggestions; they really know the best spots. And don't miss Chanticleer Gardens; an unusual treasure. Oh, and another great thing: they went out of their way to accommodate my dietary restrictions. We plan to return . T&T
The Fairville Inn is simply gorgeous and it is ensconced in a beautiful, sylvan corner of Delaware...close to Winterthur, Nemours, the Brandywine Museum and Longwood Gardens. The carpet and bathroom in our room could use a little updating, but those details won't keep us from returning to Fairville.
I had the pleasure of staying at Bob and Traudi's B&B at the end of July for several days, and I must admit that I enjoyed it more than any previous extended stay experience I have had in the last ten years. I have stayed at several four and five star hotels, but absolutely nothing compares to the comforts of home that one can find at Wayne B&B. Bob and Traudi were very accommodating! I cannot wait to visit them again!
A neighborhood in transition, this house is real and honest. A lovely owner/host, who's knowledge of Philly is well worth the visit. A remarkable home, more than just a B&B; I am looking forward to going back and bring my family and friends with me for a stay and view of this historic area.
If you ever were looking for a place to stay in this wonderful area of south Jersey, this is it. It's like finding the needle in a haystack. The Candle House is a true gem. Denise and Tom, the proprietors, are a warm and wonderful couple. They go beyond the usual "breakfast" of a "bed & breakfast" by providing snacks and coffee/tea all day long. The room was very comfortable. But book early as there are only 3 rooms here.
This is a lovely and tranquil place to stay. The location, grounds, house, Innkeepers and four-legged companion all are just warm and welcoming. The tlc and graciousness are very apparent from the moment one arrives. We had a absolutely wonderful stay at this beautiful B and B. We just loved it!
