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 and Wilmington, De., are each only a 30 minute drive and we are an hour's drive from Lancaster County known as 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 bedrooms fully equipped houses which are also available for short term as well as long term bookings...  Both cottages and one room in the main house are dog-friendly.  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 north of Chadds Ford.  Hamanassett is the way your getaway should be.
