We are Philadelphians and on occasion need to just get away. This place is a convenient drive - maybe an hour and a half max.
The Inn at the Canal is a wonderful old home. It is the quintessential B & B. It is a beautiful old home that was converted. It is well kept and has a fascinating history. It is also along the canal which also offers interesting views of passing ships and barges. The bathrooms were clean, the bed was comfortable.
The owners are terrific. They treat you like family while leaving you alone as well. As a special bonus, one of the owners is a professional chef. Breakfast is great!
I usually don't take time to write these...so I am definitely impressed. All in all, a great experience. Well worth it.
