A Little Known Place In Delaware That’s Perfect To Get Away From It All
The best getaway in Delaware is right outside of Wilmington, nestled in the state’s Brandywine Valley, or “Chateau Country.” This historic estate was once a small hamlet attached to the enormous Winterthur estate, but now it has been completely restored and turned into a stunning, charming escape for when you want to get away from it all.
During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.
The Inn at Montchanin Village is the perfect winter getaway in Delaware.
The Village itself was 19th-century hamlet, once part of the Winterthur estate. Of course it was a DuPont Property! Now, 11 restored buildings host with 28 guest rooms, spread out across the beautiful, ornate gardens that wind through the land.
The Main building hosts a Great Room with a fireplace, which is perfect for warming up.
Curl up by the fire and make friends with guests, or enjoy some reading time on your own. It's amazing to think this was once the small estate of a DuPont relative.
Each room boasts all of the boutique luxury you would expect from the charming exteriors.
Many of the suites have their own private gardens out front, and a fireplace to warm your toes. The rooms are ornate and cozy, which is a unique combination that makes the Inn at Montchanin an idea retreat for yourself and your partner, or even your friends.
Of course, each room has a stunning marble bath.
It's like having a mini-spa in your own room. Put on some music, fill the jacuzzi with hot water, and relax your troubles and stresses away.
When the snow is falling outside, there's no better place to be.
The Inn at Montchanin Village will impress you every time you visit, from the restore rooms and period furniture, to the incredibly accommodating staff. This will become your yearly go-to retreat.
The Spa is a newer addition to the Village, and it is one of the best in the area.
