The SpaceThe holiday season is fast approaching and because many people are turning their attention to shopping we thought you should know that we are located between two major shopping centers. The second largest retail shopping mall in the United States with a diverse merchant mix of over 400 stores is 30.1 miles from our home and a major brand Outlet Center with 60 designer and fashion outlet stores is 21.1 miles away. Whatever your reason for coming to Chester County, Pennsylvania our home is conveniently located and it provides a comfortable environment year round. We offer a spacious private bedroom with Black Walnut hardwood floors and sleeping capacity for up to two people on a top quality memory foam mattress known as a Tempur-Pedic (swedish designed) mattress. You may store staples such as milk, soda/pop, yogurt, fruit, wine, beer, and cheese in the refrigerator in our kitchen. If you's prefer to have full use of a kitchen we also have a private one bedroom apartment with a kitchen in our home that you can book. "Centrally located in Chester County" – 1 bedroom apartment: https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/11096675?checkin=11%2F14%2F2016&checkout=11%2F17%2F2016&guests=2&s=p_a7_muj&sug=51 Depending on your preference we can leave the king size bed as one bed or split it into two-single beds. Either way you should experience a restful night's sleep. (Our one bedroom apartment has a Termpur-pedic memory foam queen-sized mattress as well.) Next to the bedroom there is a large private bathroom with a whirlpool bathtub, and a Maytag washer (laundry soap provided)/ dryer for your added convenience at no additional cost. The controls for an Air-to_Air heat Exchanger for fresh air is located in the hallway just outside the bedroom. The proprietary energy efficient design and construction of our home eliminates costly, uncomfortable drafts and air leaks. Because our home is tight cooking and other odors are much more noticeable. Turn the dial on the Air-to-Air heat Exchanger and that usually removes the odor in just a few minutes. It also works wonders on removing bathroom moisture after a shower. Our home is a historically significant structure made from a hardwood post and beam "Bank Barn" dating back to 1886. We restored the hand hewn post and beams into a 21st Century, one of a kind, technologically advanced, State of the Art “Green”, energy efficient, 2.5 story with lofts, 4291 sq. ft. home. It won’t matter whether your visit is in the heat and humidity of the summer or the frigid cold in the winter the environment is balanced and comfortable year-round. We are located in S. Chester County which is known for its beautiful landscapes filled with green lush vegetation and rolling hills. Specifically, the scenic route to Longwood Gardens from our home as described by Tom our guest “was an enthralling experience”. In our opinion, there isn’t a big enough incentive to stay some place closer to Longwood gardens and miss out on the breath taking landscape that exists along the route to Longwood Gardens from our home. Are you’re looking for a "NON-tourist" shopping experience in PA Dutch Country? Our home is located near the county line that boarders with Pennsylvania Dutch Country. We shop where the "Locals" shop and if you are looking for something specific chances are we will have at least one recommendation to offer. Fran in her review summed up exactly how we feel about our location. Fran wrote: “A good base to go lots of places in Chester and Lancaster counties…great for exploring the surrounding areas”. We are extremely close to numerous horse farms & horse training centers. Just this past May 2016 our guest, Sandeep “volunteered at the nearby horse trails” for a weekend event and Louisa spent many nights with us while training horses to jump at a farm within walking distance of our home. Last fall Danni stayed with us because her daughter was participating in a National lacrosse tournament at the U.S. Sports Complex. In Danni’s review she remarked that- “my daughter loved the jetted tub after a day of lacrosse”. Many visitors chose to stay with us because of the very close proximity (1.2 miles walking distance) to the Mazar of M. R. Bawa Muhaiyaddeen. We are near major corporate business centers/parks located in Valley Forge; King of Prussia; Chesterbrook; Great Valley; Malvern; Paoli; the Mainline; Frazer; Exton; Glenmoore; Downingtown; Chester springs; and Limerick.

There is 24 hour police protection in our community that can be reached by calling 911. Even though we are located in a rural community there are essential services available such as an urgent care center ( 4-5 miles away), pharmacies, as well as a regional airport. Other Things to NoteYou may check in anytime at or after 3 PM on the day your reservation begins and check out is no later than 11 AM on the day your reservation ends . We have a lock box like the ones used by real estate agents at the entry door. After your reservation is confirmed we will send you the pass code to unlock the lock box containing the key. AirBnb's system is not set up to handle sending out the pass code for a lock box key system once a reservation is confirmed, at least not yet. Guests in Pennsylvania are required to pay tax on their AirBnb stay. At the time of booking the 6% tax is added to the total room charge. AirBnb handles the administration of the room tax on behalf of hosts and guests. A final note: The Airbnb system asks guests and hosts to rate value, location, accuracy, communication, observance of house rules, and cleanliness. Since becoming an AirBnb host we have earned 5 stars 99% of the time for cleanliness from every guest. Maintaining a clean environment is our highest priority for your health and for ours.

The SpaceIt’s the little things we don't think about until we need them, such as: 1) A continuous supply of hot water on-demand so you can take your shower without waiting for a hot water tank to refill; 2) Overhead lighting with wall switches in every room so you're not groping around in the dark; 3) a Tempurpedic “Swedish” memory foam mattress for a great night's sleep; 4) Executive massage chair that soothes tired, tense muscles that also heats up; 5) Radiant floor heat in the winter so you don't need to pack your slippers; 6) TV with Netflix and Hulu; & more......... Note: Hosts are residents on the property. We attempt to think about what a guest would like or need and we provide the following comforts: •Tissues in bedroom(s) and bathroom •An Air-to_Air heat Exchanger for fresh air. The proprietary energy efficient design and construction of our home eliminates costly, uncomfortable drafts and air leaks. Because our home is tight cooking and other odors are much more noticeable. Turn the dial on the Air-to-Air heat Exchanger and that usually removes the odor in just a few minutes. It also works wonders on removing bathroom moisture after a shower. •Feminine hygiene supplies kept in the bathroom (Plastic bags provided for disposal) •Thermostat setting at 74 degrees for Air Conditioning and we'll set it even cooler if you prefer. •Thermostat setting at 71 degrees for Heating and we'll set it even warmer if you prefer. •Weather permitting, freshly laundered and sanitized sheets and towels are hung outside on the clothes line to dry in the UV rays of the sun. •Ceramic and marble tiling on floors easily reveals dirt that carpeting hides and makes it easy to keep the hard surfaces noticeably clean. •Well water with an "in-line" filter located at the kitchen sink •Plenty of pillows and blankets •Entirely wheelchair accessible including a 4' X 4' marble roll in shower •Corner design computer desk with ample work space and drawers, lamp, executive desk chair, stapler, and tape. •Ground coffee and filters to go with the coffee maker •Large casement windows let in lots of natural light, fresh air, unlock and crank open easily, and seal tightly to prevent drafts •A “Firefly sanctuary”, aka lighting bugs, in our garden. World renowned artist Lucy Sikes in a painting captured the fireflies in our garden at dusk during her stay. (See photograph of her painting in the listing photos.) •Consistent 5-star reviews for cleanliness since becoming hosts in April 2015 •Super hosts with hospitality industry knowledge for a quality “home away from home” experience. The garden level apartment opens out directly into a large grassy meadow filled with tall graceful walnut trees. Fran during her stay took the photograph (shown in the listing photos) of a visiting duck just outside her window. For a more in depth description continue reading- The master bedroom is spacious (see photos) with two (2) large casement windows on the east side and two (2) large casement windows on the south side that let in lots of light and fresh air in spring and fall. The Queen Size bed with Tempurpedic “Swedish” memory foam mattress sleeps two comfortably and the executive massage chair heats up for added comfort. There is a large corner design desk with an executive chair and ample natural and lamp lighting. There is a Queen sized brass bed in the second bedroom with three (3) large casement windows. This bedroom also has a work desk (standard size) with desk chair and a comfortable reading chair with a lamp. The entire 2-bedroom apartment is wheel chair accessible starting at the secluded off street parking area to the 4’ x 4’ shower with a sit- down chair. The very large (9’ X 16’, 144 sq. ft.) bathroom/laundry area is shared with only the members of your party. For your added convenience there is a Maytag stacking washer & dryer with laundry soap (no additional charge) and a large counter top next to the washer/dryer for folding clothes or as a changing table for a young child. The kitchen is equipped with a refrigerator, microwave, stove/oven, toaster, dishes, and silverware. We restored a hand hewn post and beam barn into a 21st Century, one of a kind, technologically advanced, State of the Art “Green", energy efficient, 3-story, 4291 sq. ft. home. The only way to describe comfort is by describing (the lack of comfort) discomfort, such as cold feet and ankles, hot and cold rooms, sticky humid rooms, cold drafts, delays in hot water supply, etc. It won't matter whether your visit is in the heat and humidity of the summer or the frigid cold in the winter the environment is balanced, comfortable year-round, and draft free. Our entire home is equipped with radiant floor heat. Walking bare foot in the house on cold winter days feels the same as walking barefoot in the house during the summertime. Once you've stayed in our “EcoBuilt Efficient Building" you'll want to return again and again to re-experience the comfort only an “EcoBuilt” structure provides. Please come and spend a night, weekend, week or month (See extended stay rates). Free Wi-fi is available at all levels in the house and the pass code is provided through the AirBnb reservation system when your reservation is confirmed. Guest AccessParking is private and off from the main road. The entrance to the living area is a short walk from the private parking area. There are no steps to climb for access into the home. Interaction with GuestsWe have fairly flexible schedules. We are involved in various activities but we enjoy interacting with our guests as time permits. It is important that your privacy be maintained so room keys are available should you wish to lock your room. The NeighborhoodWe are nestled in a tall walnut tree grove in a cool, breezy slight valley off the main road in a rural (country) area of Chester County, (also known as the historical "Brandywine Valley") PA. Our home is not visible from the main road. When the windows are open, weather permitting you will hear crickets at night and birds chirping during the day. It is common to see: red headed woodpeckers, doves, blue birds, and most recently visiting mallard ducks (see photograph). Deer and rabbits roam around our property, and on occasion a fox, blue heron or even an owl can be seen. Bald Eagles have also been spotted in South Chester County and are known to have a local nesting place. There are nearly 50,000 acres of land preserved in Chester County under Chester County’s Open Space Preservation landmark program and we are less than 1.5 miles to what was once known as the King Ranch. This area has more than 1,000 acres of lush green pastures where cattle and horses can be seen grazing. Almost daily from early spring to late fall people can be seen riding bikes, walking along the Brandywine Greenway Trails, cannoning down the Brandywine River, and “Leaf Peeking”. If you're looking for a peaceful, quiet setting, our unique home (physically built by our family) is a memorable place to stay. There are many places of interest in Chester County for you to visit and you will need your own form of transportation to get there. The following is a list of some places that guests has mentioned they really enjoyed visiting: Laurels Preserve is just Five (5) miles from our home. "Native Americans once fished the streams that are now called Buck and Doe runs. Mill workers harnessed the water for gristmills and a steel rolling mill during the late 18th and early 19th centuries. For decades in the 20th century, the King Ranch grazed cattle in lush pastures adjacent to the streams.” The Laurels Preserve is made up of an original 5,367 acres plus an additional 771 acres protected today by conservation easements. Visitors need to register as members in advance of their visit. Some visitors chose to stay here because of the very close proximity (1.2 miles walking distance) to the Mazar of the Sufi Saint, M.R. Bawa Muhaiyaddeen. Travelers from all over the world come to visit the Mazar seven days a week from sunrise to sunset. It is the only Mazar in North America. There is a lush garden area that begins blooming in early spring and continues through the fall and a welcome center for visitors to meet local residents and talk with students of M.R. Bawa Muhaiyaddeen". The United Sports Complex, a youth and adult sports center is located on 100 acres of land in Downingtown, PA ( a western suburb of Philadelphia) and just minutes from our home off the Route 30 Bypass. There is a 127,000 square-foot indoor facility and a 60-acre outdoor sports complex. Pennsylvania Dutch Country is 15-20 minutes away by car where you can visit a train museum and ride on a train with a real steam engine. From spring to fall you'll find different varieties of produce starting with snow peas, asparagus, and strawberries to assortments of hard winter squash come the fall harvest. In addition to being close to the Pennsylvania Dutch Community there are many other places to visit: Multiple Equestrian Centers are located throughout Chester County and are within a few miles of our home in Cochranville, Unionville, and Honeybrook. Services and events include horse boarding, horse shows, fox hunts, tough mudder events, etc. The Brandywine Conservancy & Museum of Art is 17 miles away in Chadds Ford, PA. The Museum is open daily from 9:30 AM to 5 PM and features tours of Andrew Wyeth's Studio, America’s best-known twentieth-century artist. Getting AroundWe drive for LYFT and can provide for your transportation needs during your stay in a Volvo S80. There are local car rental agencies as well. Millennium Car and Limo Service is a local company that operates 24-7 if you need transportation for more than 4 people at a time. We have two local Amtrak train stations, one in Parkesburg and the other in Coatesville with service to Philadelphia, Washington, New York, Lancaster and Harrisburg.
