WASHINGTON, June 15, 2013 — Picturesque Brandywine offers many wonderful options for accommodation to enhance your stay in the area.

Whether making your way into the area to experience the amazing history, or just looking for a chance to slow down and enjoy the beauty of your surroundings, choosing a place to stay in Brandywine could not be easier. You will find options ranging from familiar hotel brands to wonderful historic inns.

A bed and breakfast is usually a small establishment that offers a place to sleep as well as breakfast in the morning, but usually no other meals. The custom of opening one’s home to travelers dates back the earliest day of Colonial America.

Many people who have never stayed in a B&B still think of shared bathrooms and communal eating. Although there are still some establishments which follow these guidelines, most provide a much higher level of privacy.

If you have never stayed at a bed and breakfast hotel, the Brandywine Valley is the perfect place to start with so many fantastic options, to suit any taste.

Inn at Whitewing Farm

This Inn is one of the most beautiful farms in Chester County, Pennsylvania. Whitewing farm is hidden off a quiet country road, yet just minutes from many of the major sights of the area such as Longwood Gardens and Brandywine River Museum.

The grounds are a wonderful destination themselves, with a fully stocked pond, beautiful trees and flowers. You might also be lucky enough to spot deer, groundhogs or the resident heron on the property.

The rooms are large and immaculate, each with its own private upscale bathroom. Many of the rooms also have fully stocked bookshelves and a gas fireplace to sit next to in order to enjoy one of the books. Some of them even have their own fenced off garden area with furniture to sit out and enjoy the peaceful evenings.

Lance and Sandy Shortt, along with their two young adult children, do their best to truly provide a home away from home. The main house is where they whip up a delicious breakfast every morning; Lance and Sandy also run a restaurant so they do this very well. Lance is also always available to guests looking for help or a friendly conversation. They also keep a coffee maker on the counter at all times for the guests to use, as well as a refrigerator stocked with drinks and a few snacks out on the counters.

Lance was overheard talking recently about their location being so close to Longwood Gardens that on nights when the Gardens has fireworks, he has set guests up at the Inn with snacks while they watch the fireworks.

The Inn at Whitewing Farm consistently gets the highest rating from guests, and with reasonable pricing it is always worth a stay. But you will never want to leave.

All of the Brandywine B&Bs are worth the 2 hour trip from Washington D.C. themselves. Hospitality which is such a large part of the charm of the entire area is doubled at these Inns. Almost all of them ask about any dietary restrictions at check in and will do their best to accommodate your needs.

If Bed and Breakfasts are not what you are interested on there are also plenty of convieniently located chain hotels if you are looking for a place to just get a good night’s sleep and quickly head out to see the sights.

Hampton Inn, Comfort Inn, Days Hotel, Fairfield and Sheraton all have accommodations located in the Brandywine Valley.
