Hamanassett is a grand 1856 English Country house which sits on 7 acres in the Brandywine Valley.  Let us help you plan your Pennsylvania visit.  We are near all major attractions  such as Winterthur, Longwood Gardens, Nemours, Hagley, and the Brandywine River Museum.   Philadelphia with The Barnes Foundation  and Wilmington, De., are each only a 30 minute drive and we are an hour's drive from Lancaster County where you can enjoy Amish country.   We are also near  universities such as Swarthmore, Villanova, Bryn Mawr, and Haverford.   We may not be as close as other Pennsylvania bed and breakfasts in the area but we think our seclusion and peacefulness make it worth driving an extra 10 minutes.

There are five spacious bedrooms and two suites with either a king or queen bed at our  bed and breakfast near Chadds Ford, West Chester, and Media.  All rooms have large private attached baths.  For those traveling with young children age 6 and up or who just desire more privacy, there are two 2-story two bedroom fully equipped houses which are also available for long term bookings...  Both cottages and one room in the main house are dog-friendly. We have no restriction on size or weight of our dog guests.   Picture yourself sitting on the front porch and watching the horses grazing in the meadow or enjoying the sound of the waterfall cascading into the pond stocked with koi or watching deer or foxes run by.  Please note, we are actually in the little borough of Chester Heights which is 4 miles from Chadds Ford.  Other amenities our guests enjoy are the book lined living room with a baby grand piano just waiting for your touch.  On the second floor you will find a 24 hour guest pantry with an ice machine, refrigerator stocked with soft drinks and juices, complimentary snacks, a tea kettle with all supplies, and a Keurig coffee maker.  In your room is your own coffee maker with supplies to get you started in the morning.

More about our rooms

No buffet here; we delight in making and serving breakfasts fit for a king or queen.  The New York Times wrote, "The elaborate breakfasts are a highlight", and we take that to heart.  Our breakfasts start with a special fruit course which changes daily.  This is followed by an entree accompanied by several sides.  We serve LaColombe coffee, roasted locally and served by all the premier restaurants in Philadelphia.  You may also choose from a large selection of teas as well as orange, grapefruit, or cranberry juice.    A sample breakfast could start with a poached pear with raspberry coulis, followed by our cheese and spinach roulade with sausage and baked tomato.  Or it could be a cold blueberry brulee followed by an upside down banana pancake served with scrambled eggs and bacon.  No matter what we choose to make, we guarantee you will leave our table satisfied and full.  Most of our guests tell us they don't need to stop for lunch because our breakfasts are so bountiful.  Special diets are happily accommodated with 24 hours notice.  Need to leave early?  Please give us 24 hours notice and we'll make you a to go breakfast.
