My wife and I have stayed at dozens of B&Bs and this is one of the best. The rooms and common facilities are excellent. The owner Roland was very helpful. The breakfast was high quality. Our granddaughter is at Swarthmore. We are recommending it to other members of our family who may be visiting her.

What a hidden gem! I grew up just a few miles from this place, and back then it was a barn/home that was greatly admired. When my niece became engaged 18 months ago, I quickly got on the internet to find somewhere to stay, since I moved to Chicago 32 years ag0. There is no where to stay in Media,... More

This was the second time my husband and I stayed at the Alpenhof. We were coming for a family event in Swarthmore which is about 20 minutes away. The home itself is absolutely lovely- set in a neighborhood of homes tucked away in forested hills. The main rooms are decorated with local artists work, very comfortable to sit in. There... More

After staying here, I have to question, why would I ever want to stay at another Philly hotel again? This B&B is such an escape and so magical. I was so relaxed and content here. No hassles checking in, no parking, no lines all set in a beautiful, manicured garden filled property. There's even a brook running behnd the B&B... More

The experience was simply magical. The decor was unique and I feel in love with many of their pieces of art. The hosts were incredibly friendly and kind, and yet provided us with great privacy. The room was beyond comfortable and I felt as if I stayed in a castle. Breakfast was delicious, filling and served on one of a... More

Every year we stay at the Alpenhof as it is close to the location of a Black Tie affair we attend in December. It has become one of our favorite destinations. At Christmas the the Alpenhof is decorated with a fresh tree, lights and a grand piano that we use to get into a festive mood. We have always met... More

As much as I would like to keep this hidden gem a secret -- I wanted Roland and Judy to know what a lovely bed and breakfast Alpenhof is. I have visited twice - to visit friends in the area as well as to support my daughter's running of the Philly Marathon. Nestled near Ridley Creek Park - this home... More

We just came back from a wonderful weekend stay at Alpenhof. We were there for a wedding nearby, came across this B&B on tripadvisor, and could not have been happier. Because of some tight scheduling (due to a nearby Parent's weekend) we ended up staying in two different rooms, but both were quite lovely. The B&B is in an old... More

This is a lovely renovated barn building. We had a suite which was large, comfortable and clean with balcony overlooking the swimming pool and ravine below. The bathroom was huge, double sinks, two shower nozzles. Breakfast was in a common room on a lovely split board table. You sit with other guests while the host takes your order for home... More

We had a very enjoyable stay at this Bed and Breakfast in Media. It is clear that the owners put time and effort into meeting their guests needs. We stayed in the Otto Room upstairs. The room was small and a bit dark but did have a desk which was important to us. It also had plenty of outlets for... More
