My girlfriend and I stayed at the Alpenhof a year ago and loved it. When we decided to go back to the Phila area to see everything we missed last year we went right back to Alpenhof Bed and Breakfast. Once again we chose the Rock Garden Cottage because we love the peace and serenity that it offers. Staying in... More

This fabulous inn is breathtaking! The decor and gardens were lovely...a true find! Close to Riddley Creek Park, Chaddsford and Kennett Square. Pool was great with lots of butterflies! Looking forward to breakfast tomorrow after reading all of the reviews. Wish we had a few more days to stay...we'll be back!!

He's crazy like a genius is crazy. The decorating is superb. Unusual and bold, but inviting and holds you interest. Bravo Roland. The property is terrific. We stayed in the Grand Master. Huge, high ceilings, great view, a super modern luxurious bathroom with an elegant walk into shower and a huge rain head. Heated floors. Judy does a fine breakfast:... More

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
