We have stayed at quite a few B&Bs and thought this one would be unique. It certainly was! A very old house, a very interesting history but a very dirty, dusty and dark place. There was just so much stuff everywhere too. I tried to sleep but was not able to because the moldy atmosphere was causing my throat to... More

This is not quaint nor historically romantic. This is an old, dingy, dusty, creepy inn. It needs a complete renovation and deep clean. We did not find the place charming, rather mildewy. With so many other great places to stay in this area, do no pay for a stay here.

We planned a visit to Valley Forge to see some revolutionary war sites and decided to stay in one of the oldest homes in the area which is now an inn. The house is unique and situated on 5+ acres. It has its own swimming pool and a few acres to tramp through. The room we stayed in was large... More

Pattye Benson has been running her B&B for over 30 years and that experience translates to comfortable, well-appointed accommodations and delicious breakfasts for her guests. She also is a wealth of information on the local history. The Great Valley House is loaded with history. Its original building (where you'll eat breakfast and check out the amazing 12-foot walk-in fireplace and... More

I should begin by saying that I have stayed in dozens of B & Bs around the country, so I have some experience. I strongly urge travelers to avoid the Great Valley House. Here is a list of some of its deficiencies: *There is no common indoor space (living room, for example) for guests to read or chat. I had... More

We thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of our stay at Great Valley House. Hosts were friendly, helpful, personable, and a wealth of knowledge. They have a great respect for the history of the home and the surrounding area, as evidenced in every corner of the home, via antique overload. In fact, we were told that this is the oldest home in... More

The Great Valley House is an wonderful and interesting place to stay while visiting Valley Forge National Park. Our innkeeper, Pattye, was very friendly and hospitable and was prepared to give us so much information on the area - everything from directions to points of interest to recommendations for great restaurants. Guest rooms, although quirky, are quite large. Breakfast was... More

The Great Valley House was a historic place to stay. One of the oldest houses in PA built around 1671 and packed full of antiques, quilts and interesting artifacts. The owner Pattye Benson is extremely knowledgeable about the property and also the area. Breakfasts were delightful and always included good conversations. The John Wilson Room was spacious as was the... More

I had read the bad reviews about this place on TripAdvisor, so I knew it would be not-so-hot. But, I was traveling to that area during the U.S. Open Golf Tournament, which was in the same area, so, there were no other rooms available! I took the chance. It is an old, old house, and has "the bones" to be... More

We stayed at this B&B in May 2012. Our first encounter with Pattye was not pleasant: there was a problem with the reservation and the number of rooms we had requested and we ended up paying for all the rooms, but the home seemed charming enough to make the best of the situation. Sadly, the home's charms could not compensate... More
