From the second you pull into the beautifully landscaped grounds of this regal mansion, you are immediately greeted with outstanding hospitality and warmth from the owners, Ashely and Glen Mon. Then you walk into the doors of this gracious mansion amd are in awe of the antiques and collectables. The excitment does not stop there, Glen takes you on a fabulous tour, with history included, of the mansion, and then you are welcome to roam the floors and partake of the complimentary Sherry and Port that are contained in antique crystal decanters and beautifully arranged and served on a silver platter with antique cordials.
We happened to come across the Hamanessett while conducting a last minute internet search for Inns/B&B's in the Brandywine country. I initially felt very disappotinted when making reservations as Ashely proceeded to inform me that there were no restaurants in the area that had reservations left for Christmas Eve, however, when she called me back to extend a VIP invitation to join she and Glen for dinner, I was overwhelmed. Here a lady that I just met was inviting us to dinner. That is true 'Southern hospitality' (by the way, Ashley is a southern belle through and through). The dinner was spectaular, and a wonderful Christmas present! We are no strangers to Inns and B&B's, and like many enthusiasts know a great place when we are lucky enough to find it. We hope that you will treat yourself to the great hospitality and ambiance that we were fortunate enough to come across at the Hamanassett.
