Overview

About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

This two bedroom, two and a half bath carriage house which sleeps four is 1100 square feet of English Country charm tucked into the woods behind Hamanassett Bed and Breakfast on a seven acre Brandywine Valley estate. It is ideal for those traveling with children age 6 and up or dogs or those who just want a little more privacy.

First floor has a large fully stocked and equipped kitchen, right down to cloth napkins and table cloths. The dining room is furnished with a large dining table. The living room is furnished with a sofa, two wing back chairs, and a corner unit which holds the TV with DVD player, expanded cable, and fireplace. Although not a real wood burning fireplace, it fools the most discerning eyes and offers all the ambiance and romance of a fire (with or without the heat so can be used year round) without the muss and fuss. There is also a powder room and a laundry area with full-size washer and dryer just off the kitchen. The kitchen is fully equipped with full size appliances as well as microwave oven and dishwasher. All kitchen utensils as well as dishes, glasses, and wine glasses are providedl. We live on the property so if you have a special need that we missed, just ask us.

Upstairs you will find two bedrooms. The front bedroom has a queen bed with lace canopy and a private hall bath. The back bedroom has a king bed with a huge private en-suite bathroom which has a claw foot slipper tub and separate large walk in shower. Some DVD movies are provided in the carriage house. There is a user friendly front porch where you can rock away your stresses and there is also a gas barbecue and outside table and chairs. We also offer free Wifi throughout the property. Smoking is permitted outside only.

The back yard is fenced so your four legged friend can enjoy the property as well. Only a quarter mile away is Darlington Walking trail where walks of four to five miles can be taken. We are also near all the major Brandywine Valley attractions such as Longwood Gardens, Winterthur, Brandywine River Museum (Wyeth museum), Nemours, Hagley Museum, and the Barnes Foundation. Ridley Creek Park is a short 10 minute drive. Philadelphia is only 35 minutes away or you can easily do a day trip to Lancaster County which is only 1 hour west of us. Wilmington, De. is approximately 20-25 minutes.

NOTE; RE TAXES - When you book through VRBO state and lodging taxes (9% total) are not included but will be collected when you check in. Collecting tax is required by law. Bookings of 30 days or longer are considered rentals and no tax is added.

What makes this house unique

Near major attractions but off the beaten track so you will experience a quiet haven after your day of sight seeing. Quiet 7 acre estate with horses close enough to the main house if you need help but far enough away for privacy.

Delightful Early Fall Week

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I, plus our dog, enjoyed a wonderful week at the Meadow Cottage in early fall. The Cottage was comfortable and well equipped for everything we needed for a week's stay. We loved the quiet spot looking out and visiting with the neighbor's friendly horses. The Inn owners answered all of our questions ahead of time and offered suggestions for dining out and other area attractions. The location in a residential area was peaceful, yet convenient to shopping areas and major highways.

Ultimate retreat

The owners are most accommodating and the location and property are great. Pictures and description are accurate. This provided the perfect solution for us, visiting in an area that we were familiar with, and giving us the flexibility we needed.
