Absolute Perfection! We did a two-night stay beginning on the first day of summer, and we were welcomed like it was our own home. I visited this beautiful estate in Glen Mills, PA with someone who has intimate knowledge of the area, but it was her [and my] first time there. And the visit was unforgettable! The main house is stunning, in an old, comfortable way, sprinkled throughout with mementos and photographs of John Kelly, the Philadelphia contractor and champion rower who was Grace Kelly's father. We stayed in one of the outbuilding cottages, complete with fireplace, jacuzzi and all the modern amenities. Breakfast was outstanding, served on an outdoor patio with a view of the farm's horses, sheep and goats. You must like dogs to stay there, as the two resident hounds make their rounds through all visitors, and sometimes accompany you as you stroll the grounds. You can even bring your own dog there and stay if you choose. Of note this time of year - there is a swimming pool that's open at all times for a quick dip. It's worth the trip to spend some time in a relaxed, easy-going atmosphere. Just to sit under the stars ... to dream ... and be enchanted.
