haded under huge old trees, 1732 Folke Stone Bed and Breakfast, founded in 1995, provides a perfect setting for a romantic and relaxing getaway. This charming beautifully restored stone manor house with its open beam ceilings, random width floors, and walk-in fireplaces, creates an ambience reminiscent of yesteryear; at the same time providing the amenities expected by our discriminating guests.
This 1732 William Penn land grant home was built by Abiah Taylor as a wedding gift for his daughter and son-in-law, Daniel Hoopes. Folke Stone was a safe haven for the Underground Railroad in the 1800s. Due to its historical significance and family antiques, this home was open for the annual Chester County Day House Tour.
One can read and relax, play the Steinway piano and view the beauty of nature when walking along the nearby trail. Enjoy early morning coffee, while sitting on the side porch. A delicious gourmet breakfast is served graciously in the Great Room by candlelight amidst lots of great conversation. On warm days breakfast can be served on the patio, an idyllic setting overlooking the pond and graceful swans.
Folke Stone is a five minute drive to historical West Chester with its cute shops and great restaurants. This location provides a close getaway to the Brandywine Valley attractions, such as Longwood Gardens and the Brandywine River Museum. In less than an hour one can find themselves among the Amish or taking in the sights of historical Philadelphia.
The inviting guest rooms vary in décor from the French provincial furniture of the King Louis room to the cozy spindle queen bed in the Jenny Lind room to the pretty romantic Rose room. We warmly welcome you to our home - your home away from home!!
