If you are looking for a perfect Bed & Breakfast experience, make an immediate reservation at the Hamanassett! We stayed only one night, to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary, but yearned to stay longer and will certainly return! Ashley and Glenn Mon were warm and eager to welcome us to their beautifully restored and gorgeously decorated home and made us feel immediately relaxed. Our room was fresh, clean and luxuriously appointed with high end bedding and bath linens. Our stay included many complimentary extras...freshly baked cookies put out each afternoon, port in the library in the evenings, and a "help yourself snack pantry", filled to the brim with assorted packaged snacks, drinks, bottled water, Senseo coffee, etc.
We opted for the additional Enchanted Evening package which included a dozen gorgeous, fresh red roses in our room upon arrival, and when we returned to our room after dinner there were silk rose petals on our turned down bed, romantic CDs to pop into the bedside CD player, champagne, truffles, and a delicious homemade chocolate cake. Wonderful!!!!
Our breakfast was a gourmet delight. We started with fresh, perfectly ripe bananas drizzled with a warm, homemade caramel sauce, followed by a delicious artichoke fritatta, bacon and croissants.This was served with an assortment of juices, fresh coffee or tea. Breakfast was at a comfortable pace with Glenn and Ashley serving us and chatting happily while they worked.
The goal for this brief visit was to remove my husband from his non-stop work demands in NYC and relax and savor our life together in a pleasurable environment. This visit did the trick and we plan to return again and again to celebrate other happy occasions, as well as, take advantage of all the amusements that the Brandywine Valley has to offer.
