S


tep back to the unhurried pace of the past while enjoying the modern conveniences of today in a Brandywine Valley Bed and Breakfast. The Brandywine Valley region is an important piece of our nation's history. In fact, many of our member B&B's are located on property that was part of a land grant from William Penn, the founder of Pennsylvania. The Brandywine with its fields, woodlands, and waterpower, is a unique place that has fostered natural and human achievement.

On this land battles were fought, and fortunes were made. Out of those fortunes and a commitment to stewardship have sprung some of the world's most fascinating attractions and large tracts of preserved open spaces. We have four seasons of breathtaking gardens, elaborate mansions, world-class museums, scenic beauty and many cultural points of interest along the way.

Aside from our close proximity to such world-class attractions as Longwood Gardens and Winterthur Museum, the Brandywine Valley innkeepers offer an experience unlike any other in the valley. Sip afternoon tea on a quiet verandah, sleep in an antique bed, curl up with a cozy quilt, relax in front of a warm fireplace, soak in a luxurious jacuzzi bath, take an evening stroll through fragrant gardens, and indulge in a hearty breakfast. Choose from a variety of architecturally styled homes that have been lovingly restored to welcome you. We have federal style mansions, farmhouses, Victorian homes and Georgian manor houses.

We'll help to make your stay in the valley a pleasurable and memorable experience as you enjoy the personalized service that an innkeeper provides. After an uplifting and fun day exploring the valley, we can recommend restaurants that cater to your tastes and preferences. Whether you want a gourmet restaurant or a casual local favorite, you'll find it within reach of your B&B.

There’s a wonderful feeling as you walk outside. The fragrance, clean, crisp, and slightly perfumed air...

It's “SPRING” in the Brandywine Valley. Wow!
March arrives and there’s no holding back. Now the flowers are jumping up, all over. There’s not enough time in the day to attend everything that the Brandywine Valley has to offer. 
 

Longwood’s landscape comes alive in spring with months of flowering trees, shrubs, and bulbs throughout over 1000 acres. Enjoy Spring Blooms from April through May. The 4 acres of indoor conservatories bring sights and fragrances to behold, and the fountain displays begin in April.  Let Your Inner Child come out in the Indoor children’s garden & playground & Nature’s Castles “tree houses” daily. There are all kinds of instrumental & vocal concerts. Many events require advance tickets so check the website, www.longwoodgardens.org. This is not to mention all of the educational classes, lectures, and tours etc. that go on continually. Looking ahead- plan on attending the Wine & Jazz Festival in June, on multiple stages and garden wide, and the returning Nightscape: A Light and Sound Experience- an evening journey with moving imagery and light set to original music, on view July through October.

The dazzling beauty of Winterthur’s glorious 60-acre garden is ever changing, ever more beautiful. The narrated tram tour allows you to ride through acres of gardens  or you can take the walking paths to saunter amid breath-taking scenes in Spring. The March Bank and East Terrace are bursting with Spring blooms, which will progress throughout the garden. As the year unfolds, the beauty unfurls. An Introductory or family tour is included with admission (other “focus” tours are available for a modest charge) . Spend hours viewing the ever-changing Galleries exhibits.  Children are not forgotten here, wonder at the magic of Winterthur's famous fairy-tale children's garden, Enchanted Woods, and enjoy hands-on learning in the Touch-It Room.  The “Point to Point” Steeplechase coincides with the Kenturky Derby on the first Sunday in May, with tailgate picnicking, antique carriages, historic autos, and more.

Take in the Brandywine River Museum www.brandywine.org, exploring the incredible three generations of Wyeth family creations, as well as works by other Brandywine School artists and beyond.  If this appeals to you, check out The Andrew Wyeth Studio, NC Wyeth House & Studio and the Keurner Farm tours (geneally open April 1 through the day before Thanksgiving.  Don't forget Music on the Brandywine – Spring, Summer & Fall.
The Annual Wildflower and Native Plant Sale on Mother’s Day weekend is a complete education on native plants. Then the Antique Show on Memorial Day weekend & the Annual Bonsai Show at the end of May are outstanding.

Don't forget the Hagley Museum (the Gunpowder works that began the DuPont empire), Nemours Estate and Gardens (the gardens are considered the finest example of French gardens this side of the pond), and the historic Brandywine Battlefield (where George Washington and Lafayette battled the British before retreating to spend the winter at Valley Forge).

  The Brandywine Valley truly has it all. Be sure to ask your innkeeper about the “Brandywine Treasures Passport” that offers admission to about a dozen attractions at a significant discount from Memorial Day through Labor Day.

See Summer in the Brandywine
