The Inn at Grace Winery
Ranked #1 of 1 Glen Mills B&B and Inns
Reviewed December 29, 2013

We have stayed at Sweetwater 8 times in the past 4 years, and unfortunately we may have had our last visit. They have done a lot of remodeling which has frankly detracted from the charm of the property. The winery on site has taken much of the establishment's focus and the bed and breakfast seems to be built around getting folks to drink there. I wish they would have focused their efforts into making the walls more sound proofed, as you can literally hear everything someone says from one room to the next, especially in the attached cottages. I didn't sleep more than 3 hours on my last visit. And the breakfasts leave a lot to be desired. Maybe it's our bad luck, but we have been served eggs every time we have been there. Pancakes or other entree choices would be nice for a change. It's a shame, really, because we had some great stays early on, but at $300 a night it isn't worth it any longer.

I just spent a mid-week getway @ this most quiet, relaxing bed & breakfast.Grounds are very elegant, with it's own winery on site, adirondack chairs with fire pits to be found for relaxing enjoying the peace of it all. One evening staff set us a fire so we could enjoy a glass of wine watching the sunset. Breakfast each morning each morning on enclosed patio with a view of the grounds. Staff greeted you with Hot Coffee or Tea , fresh baked muffins or danish. Which they gave enough time to slowly awake to the day. Breakfast was a choice of something different everyday eggs of some sort/ and or pancakes waffles etc. Brogan the in resident dog would stop by each table. Brogan also will be your guide for a hike of the grounds if you ask him.
On a negative note, stayed in the Greenhouse which could use some up dating. Curtains in common area of Greenhouse where in need of washing or a change. We had a bee problem in the room, When asking at desk to have someone do something. Where told they would get right on it. Never did; killed bees myself. House keeping never seemed to swept floors as dead bees remind on floor for our entire stay. We where not there to stay in our room so I would have say this would not stop me from returning or recommending to others. But would like to see improvement.

This was our second trip to Sweetwater Farm, but the first was brief and seven years ago. They have improved the property a lot since then -- including opening a winery on the premises. The grounds are expansive enough that you can find plenty of privacy. They have creatively placed seating groups (adirondack chairs, porches, etc) in little nooks so that you can enjoy the outdoor grounds without being on top of the other guests. Breakfast was very good, enhanced by getting to enjoy it while watching horses and goats graze together in their pasture. The pool is outstanding. While many B&B's provide a good jumping off point for exploring the surrounding area, this one is rich enough that you can have a wonderful weekend while barely leaving the property.

Room Tip: The Brandywine room may not be their most charming room, but the bathroom is huge, and there is plen...

We live in the DC area and had a wedding in Villanova, PA. We were looking for a place for a 2 night get away and found Sweetwater Farm. It was PERFECT! It was very quaint, handsomely decorated, quiet and peaceful. The main farmhouse had wonderful rooms you could lounge in, from the pool table room, to a sitting area. I loved the porch that overlooked the vineyard. They are adding a bar room that looks great. Their new indoor/outdoor breakfast porch is so well done - you can tell the owners took great care in picking everything from the floor to the ceiling - it was a charming room overlooking the pool horse area, cottage and vineyard.

We relaxed at the pool, sat in rocking chairs out front our cottage, took a hike in the woods, shared a bottle of wine on the porch in the evening, went to a wine tasting, and enjoyed breakfast. I would love to go back. We felt worlds away and came back rested.

Began our two night stay in the Gardener's Cottage. A/C was pumping frigid. Various helpers tried to regulate, but that night was spent shivering under Duvets. Switched the next day to Innkeepers Cottage. Vast improvement. Breakfast in the Winery Building charming. Much reno going on lowered the serenity rating.
Hope to return when all completed.

We went to a wedding here. The property is beautiful, the rooms charming, the breakfast delicious. All the staff are friendly and helpful. We stayed in the dormer suite which is large and inviting - loved hte quaint makeup table! There is a pool, hot tub and winery on the property. Lots of comfy chairs to relax on the porch and read your book. The ampitheater for a wedding is beautiful as is the barn for a reception.

My husband and I took a 2 1/2 hour drive to this beautiful property in the hills of Pennsylvania. We loved the historical home, the welcoming and charming staff, the wonderful animals on the property and the wine tasting at the beautiful barn on the property. We were lucky to escape the torrents of rain on long Island to arrive in Glenn Mills Pennsylvania to spend 3 glorious sunny days and nights during the Memorial Weekend. We loved the sun streaming through the property trees and the gentle breezes that swept through as if to visit and then go. The metal fire pits on the property were a gathering place in the cool evening for young couples enjoying their evening chatting, laughing and drinking fine wine produced from the vineyard. The flickering flames were seen by my husband and I from the rear home porch and the sparks looked like fireflies in the distance. I truly loved the gas fire place in our cozy and wonderful room. The bed was so soft I didn't want to get out of it!!! The breakfast was amazing and the staff worked hard to cook and plate the delectable, healthy and tasty food for us to eat. The inn keeper's son was charming and the family dogs were so well behaved and didn't mind me hugging and kissing them. Don't tell anyone but I gave them bits of my sausage!!! shhhhh! We enjoyed all the recommended attractions and loved the horse show in Devon! We loved it soooo much that we set aside cottages and rooms for Labor Day Weekend for family fun. We will be celebrating my grandchildren's 1st birthday and both my daughter's birthdays!!! We can't wait to visit again!! Thank you to the staff at our new favorite B&B. We hoped off the roller coaster of demands put upon us on a day to day basis on long island and found Sweatwater Farm very calming. We were very happy!!!
