Open a hidden door behind a painting in the living room to enter your Private Bedroom & Bath located in the original 1699 section of this renovated home located near the Brandywine River Museum, Winterthur, Longwood Gardens, & more! Shared spaces include a large living room with gas fireplace, sun room with beautiful garden views, kitchen & dining room.
Once you type in the code that unlocks the front door, you enter a space where there's something interesting to look at everywhere you turn your head. It started as a cottage that was built in 1699 (which is now your bedroom!) and since then some additions have been added on. The original exterior sidings of the cottage are now interior walls! It's pretty neat! The living room comes with a high ceiling, a beautiful gold chandelier and a gas fireplace. It's the perfect seating area for a couple of people or plus some. There's art pieces in the home that the owner, Francie Chalfant, has created herself as well as some pieces she's collected over the years and there's even art displayed on the FLOOR (you'll see what I mean).
In your bedroom, there is a private bathroom and closet that is ONLY accessible through your room. It comes complete with a walk-in shower, washer and dryer.
It's a pretty open space but still presents a comfortable environment.
Please Take Full Advantage Of:
-- Your bedroom and all that it supplies: the bathroom, walk-in shower, the washer and dryer, etc.
-- the living room (gas fireplace is easy to access with a touch of a button!)
-- the kitchen (refreshments are in the fridge, fridge also has a built-in filtered water/ice dispenser, keurig is also on sight free for guests to use)
-- the dining room (fireplace in here as well)
-- outside patio(s) and backyard
Where Guests Should Refrain From Going:
-- the down DOWNstairs (this will make sense when you arrive, there is a tenant that lives in the bottom space below and are entitled to their private quarters without any disturbances, THANK YOU!)
-- the third floor/attic -- this is Emily's (your host, housemate, roommate, etc) bedroom and guests should refrain from going up the stairs
-- the garage
There is so much to explore on this property without having to go into these areas that the guests will still find much comfort staying here!
Interaction with guests
Emily is a 23 year old, Penn State graduate who lives on the premises and will be on the property when guests stay. She is there to be a host and an outlet if guests have any questions to the best of her ability about the property or surrounding area. Emily does have a full time job as well as a part time job so it is possible she may not be on the property for a good portion of your stay.
