A great, if somewhat isolated place to stay. The beds are comfortable - three doubles. All tiled floors - bring slippers:-) nice to find eggs and bread and butter and coffee awaiting. Thanks so much Bonnie. The kitchen is fully equipped and there is plenty of room to dine at table and then relax in the living area. I advise an arrival in daylight. Chadds Ford is fabulous. Terrific restaurants. About 30 minute drive from the house to the Brandywine Museum and studio tours. A BRILLIANT way to spend the day.

This place was great! The huge bedrooms and family room were fantastic. We appreciated the full kitchen and the host providing breakfast fixings for us that first day. The only small improvement we would make is to put a mirror in every bedroom. 5 adults trying to get ready for a wedding with only one mirror made it tense at times. We would definitely stay here again!!

It is a great and quiet place. Although it is a little bit to find, they sent us a note in detail on the direction. The rooms are quite big. And the kitchen has everything we need.

AirBnB recommends that both hosts and guests create a personal profile about themselves. We’ve created this message so that you will know a little more about our passion and lifetime commitment.

First and foremost we believe a home should feel comfortable. For years we've heard the saying “A home is where the heart is”—a place of love, acceptance, and nourishment. How can you feel nourished when you are freezing or burning up? How can you provide a loving environment for yourself and others if you are too busy fighting the elements?

Our EcoBuilt Efficient Building design retains the best environment for living while minimizing the consumption and waste of energy. Over the past three decades we have proven over and over that our energy efficient methods and systems work better and are more cost-effective to operate than conventionally built structures.

It is baffling to know that people will go out of their way to save a few pennies on a gallon of gasoline and at the same time live in a home that is wasting as much as 50% or more of the energy it consumes every year.

Being a host is very rewarding. We get satisfaction from knowing that our guests are experiencing comfort inside a building in a way they’ve probably never experienced before. It is our life’s mission to show people that it’s possible to profit from the power of efficiency.
