The SpaceGuests love this room because it is quiet, private, very clean and has the most comfortable bed you can imagine. Two large south facing windows let in beautiful light - and have black out blinds if you want to sleep late.
The room has a small faux fireplace to add heat and ambiance. The en suite WC is very cute with a small sink and toilet. There are two large closets with plenty of hangers. We even have a suitcase stand, so you don't need to keep your suitcase on the floor. There are guest bathrobes for you to enjoy - they get washed after each visitor, wether they look used or not.
All linens, robes and towels are 100% natural fiber and of high quality.
If you want to rent another room for additional guests, please contact us. We are in the process of turning a second, adjacent, room in to a guest room. We can also offer an inflatable bed that is regular bed height for an extra guest or two.
There is plenty of space to park your car. Motorcycles can be accommodated in the garage if you give us a heads up.
Our home is on a cul de sac street, so it is very nice and quiet here. We live in a development but all lots are at least 2 acres and it feels like country side.
Bit has a background in luxury hospitality and a knack for making people comfortable. Greg, as a former bartender in a high end club, also knows how to be a great host.
We have three cats. They do roam the entire house, but are generally not allowed in the guest bedroom. Your pets are very welcome if they stay in your room, and are house broken. Calm cat friendly dogs can use common areas if they don't chase the cats. Guest AccessYou are welcome to make your own coffee, tea, breakfast or meals in the kitchen. Coffee, a vast selection of teas, milk or cream and a variety of sugars and sweeteners is always available. Let us know if there is anything in particular you want to have for breakfast, and we can make sure to be stocked up. It is an older kitchen, but nice and large and very well equipped (Bit is a gourmet cook). It is not always tidy, but it is always very clean.
Weather permitting you can enjoy the huge deck overlooking the pool and the 2 acre property. We have two propane heating lamps out there. It is a lovely place to watch the stars at night.
You can walk out the back of the property straight on to a very nice walking path through the nature preserve.
In the summer time you can enjoy fresh vegetables, lettuces and herbs from our large garden. Interaction with GuestsAt least one of us will be around pretty close to 24/7. We will leave you alone and give you space, but are always happy to sit down and share ideas and thoughts, tell you about the area etc. The NeighborhoodA quiet neighborhood, yet close to so much!
There are several very high end restaurants with innovative cuisines within 10 minutes from our house. There are also lots of family restaurants and other places to eat. Many of our local restaurants are BYOB, which will save you some money and allow you to drink your favorite wines for a small corkage fee. Both Pennsylvania and Delaware restaurants allow you to take opened bottles home.
A very cute little town, only ten minutes away, with small stores, nice walking, good restaurants and quaint buildings. We will put information about this and other local attractions in your room.
Longwood Gardens, one of the foremost botanical gardens in the US. Mount Cuba is another amazing place if you are interested in plants.
Winterthur is a gorgeous estate that has some very interesting areas for the gardener. Other great estates in the area include Hagley and Nemours.
If you are interested in arts, don't miss the Brandywine River Museum where you can see generations of Wyeth art. The Delaware Art Museum in Wilmington has an impressive collection for a relatively small city, and is well worth a visit.
We live close to many Amish farms, as well as some nice stores. From May until Thanksgiving you can join us in going to our wonderful local farmers markets on Fridays and Saturdays where you can buy directly from Amish farmers.
