Reviewed May 2, 2013

Stayed one night in the Gardner's cottage which allows a small pet (a bowl, blanket and mat were placed in a basket for our puppy). Room was very clean, cozy and quaint. Bed was super comfortable as was the leather couch. Very nice, updated bathroom. Grounds are very well kept and beautiful. Lovely to walk around ot just sit outside. Breakfast was delicious and the innkeepers provided such warm, friendly service. Great restaurants nearby and also a lovely trail for a jog or a hike. Very relaxing, very private feel.

I stayed in the small "Herb" cottage on the grounds near the main house for 3 nights, and was thoroughly charmed by the countryside and the whole experience. There were horses and goats grazing in the field below the cottage, the room was warm and comfortable, the breakfast was perfect every morning - and stories seeped from every corner of the living rooms of that old house... War of Independence British soldiers had visited the house in September 1777 after the nearby battle of Brandywine, tended their horses, and stole whiskey from the cellar. Interested to find that the charming owner Chris Kelly is the late-Princess Grace Kelly's nephew. And the PHL airport is a useful 30 minutes drive away. I did also stay downtown in a name hotel ...and this was way nicer.

Ever experience a great spot while away for a business conference that you wanted to return to for a relaxing get away for you and your spouse? Sweetwater Farm certainly came to mind for me when I visited earlier this week. The main house where I stayed had seven rooms, three in the old 1700's wing and another four in the newer 1815 addition, both sides accessible from extensive living room, dining room, kitchen, parlor and and lounge areas (with a lovely antique billiards table that got a lot of use from me). Eight additional rooms are located in attractive cottages near the manor house. There is a renovated barn with now houses meeting space and a winery with tastings on weekends of the six wines they produce from a five acre vineyard on the farm. There are horses, family dogs and a cheerful staff that add to the get-away experience.

Rooms are beautifully appointed, each with separate bath, and beds very comfortable after a long business meeting or confortable day touring the many attractions nearby. Breakfast was blueberry/banana pancakes with sausage during our overnight, which made for a great start to the day.

There is an outdoor pool which we did not see in January, during a very cold two days, but the in-room gas fireplaces warmed us well, and showers were always hot.

All in all, a great place for a small business meeting and a wonderful spot to come back to on your own.

Room Tip: I prefer the main house for ease in coming down to breakfast and the wonderful common rooms.

We were three girlfriends on a three-day road trip to the Brandywine Valley to visit the duPont Mansions and gardens. A friend living in the area recommended the Sweetwater B&B and it was just right. The mansions, museums, and even QVC are all a relatively short drive away.

Sweetwater is a working farm with a barn, storage, an ice house (used as the farm’s offices – set half below ground, it looks like a hobbit lodging), a manor house (a Quaker farmhouse dating to the 1700‘s and expanded in the 1800s), and guest cottages scattered around the property. It even has dogs, horses and goats, completing the idyllic and picturesque setting. Located on about 50 acres, its owner is the nephew of the late Princess Grace of Monaco, explaining why its 5 acre vineyard is named Grace Winery.

Three of us shared the Greenhouse, a two-bedroom cottage with a large, open living room, high ceilings, a working fireplace, a large digital TV, comfortable leather armchairs, and an efficiency kitchen, French doors that open to a patio, and a large bathroom with Jacuzzi tub and stall shower with rain showerhead. It was comfortable and decorated in a lovely, contemporary country style. We built a nice, cracking fire one evening using a wonderful product called EZlite Fire Starter - just place a packet on the wood, light a corner, and watch it go to work.

Breakfast was in the dining room of the Manor House. It was delicious with a slightly different combination of fresh fruit, baked items and cooked dishes each day we were there. You helped yourself to coffee, juices and a basket of homemade muffins, scones, or mini-danish on a sideboard. Cooked dishes were served individually but portions are on the small side. The first day we had rosemary pancakes, the second day we had eggs and Canadian bacon. Service was efficient but robotic. No small talk, a request for ketchup for the eggs was simply ignored, and a question for the innkeeper went unanswered.

Room Tip: The Greenhouse is described as family-friendly. But its bedrooms are furnished with queen-sized beds...

This place is amazing and is truly a hidden gem. A perfect place to go and relax and unplugg. If you are in need of a BB in the PA area, this is the place to stay!

While I was here for business it is most certainly a place I want to go back to stay with my husband.

After a long drive from Boston and its horrendous traffic, we couldn't dream of a better place to stay. Coming from Europe, I would say it's an ideal place to stay; it's closed to Philadelphia and there is a interesting places to visit : Longwood Gardens, Winterthur, etc. A few "chic" restaurants around the hotel, and as a foreigner I preferred the Texas Steak House and it's very colorful atmosphere.
Rooms in the main building are beautiful and comfortable. We really felt like home. After 2 days, we were ready to stay at least a week,so peaceful.

My husband and I were invited by friends to visit Longwood Gardens in Kennett Square, PA and were encouraged to try our overnight stay at Sweetwater Farm. It's an idyllic B&B set against a 50 acre background of farmland, vineyards, and rolling hills. We chose to stay in one of the little cottages on the property as opposed to the main house which dates back to the 1700's but has been updated. The cottage had it's own little front porch surrounded by wine vines a very adequate bedroom and a lovely updated bath with a shower and separate tub. It's a very peaceful and pet friendly accomodation and a nice breakfast is included out on the back porch overlooking the pool. We will definitely try it again on another visit to Longwood Gardens.

Room Tip: You can go on line to see the features of each of the rooms. Our friends chose to stay in the main...
