About the Property

House, 2 Bedrooms, 1.5 Baths (Sleeps 4) Dog Friendly

This two bedroom, one and a half bath cottage is pure country charm located in the charming burrough of Chester Heights which is 5 miles south of Media.. Tucked into the woods in the back of a seven acre Brandywine Valley estate, it is our most private accommodation. It is ideal for those traveling with children age 8 and up or dogs or those who just want a little more privacy.

First floor has a large fully stocked and equipped kitchen. There is also a stackable washer/dryer. The living room is furnished with an L-shaped sofa, and a TV with cable and DVD player. A lovely Dimplex fireplace gives you all the warmth and romance of a real fire without the hassle. Free WIFI is included. There is also a dining room and a large bedroom with 1/2 bath. The bed can be either a king or twins. There is a $20.00 service charge to convert the king to twin beds.

Upstairs is a queen bedroom wirh a large hall bathroom with tub and shower. Please see our web site at for more pictures. As a self catered vacation rental you will be provided with enough amenities such as coffee, toilet tissue, paper towels, etc. to get you through your first night. After that you are on your own.

Please note this house is for leisure travel only. Absolutely no commercial use or use for parties is allowed unless discussed in advance with owner. Additional fees will be charged.

Dogs are welcome for an additional fee of $25 per night per dog up to a total of $100 for your entire stay. There is a small fenced in yard to allow your dogs freedom to play. Philadelphia is only 30 minutes away or you can easily do a day trip to Lancaster County which is only 1 hour west of us. Wilmington, De. is 30 minutes south. We are close to all major attractions such as Longwood Gardens, Winterthur, Nemours, Brandywine River Museum and Hagley.
