First off, after our first night, we decided to check out and spend time staying with family in the area. Pattye, our hostess allowed us to pay for just two nights instead of the three we had reserved.
That said, we found this lovely home to be creepy, dark, overcrowded with way too much clutter and also dirty. What a shame-- it has endless potential but needs a thorough emptying and cleaning. The beds were old and uncomfortable as well. We also found it strange to have to pay for water and other beverages from a small refrigerator on the third floor. The breakfast was ok but not amazing. I have to agree with the other negative reviews about this one. Will not be staying here again.

Room Tip: Steer clear of this one.

We have stayed at quite a few B&Bs and thought this one would be unique. It certainly was! A very old house, a very interesting history but a very dirty, dusty and dark place. There was just so much stuff everywhere too. I tried to sleep but was not able to because the moldy atmosphere was causing my throat to close on me. The kitchen was so dark and everything seemed so dirty that I did not have an appetite. The coffee was terrible too. I am not leaving this review to be mean, I just want to warn others so this does not happen to them! Oh, and there was no curtain on the bathroom window!

This is not quaint nor historically romantic. This is an old, dingy, dusty, creepy inn. It needs a complete renovation and deep clean. We did not find the place charming, rather mildewy. With so many other great places to stay in this area, do no pay for a stay here.

Room Tip: You want a good room? Go somewhere else.

We planned a visit to Valley Forge to see some revolutionary war sites and decided to stay in one of the oldest homes in the area which is now an inn. The house is unique and situated on 5+ acres. It has its own swimming pool and a few acres to tramp through.

The room we stayed in was large but very dark. It was only in the bright sunshine of the morning that you could see well the layout. The bed is a double bed with iron railings that is good if you are 6 feet tall or less. Unfortunately, I am two inches over the limit and it made for part of the discomfort. The bed itself was indeed from a different century and not very comfortable.

The room is filled with throw pillows and some quilts. We stacked the pillows to one side but enjoyed looking at the quilts. In the downstairs parlor and formal dining rooms that are quilts and dresses from earlier periods. Again, you can see them only in the bright sunlight of morning. The bathroom in out the hall next door, but it is a private bathroom that was quite adequate.

The morning breakfast is not in the formal dining room but through a how passage way to the oldest part of the house that dates to 1690's.The room is low ceilinged with roughhewn beams and a large cook in fire place. The room itself was a delightful treat to feel like it was in the revolutionary period.

Our hostess was inquisitive of our story but not forth coming on her own. The conversation was somewhat strained but pleasant enough. Our host was spotted one morning pulling weeds but otherwise was not evident.

A once in a lifetime experience.

Pattye Benson has been running her B&B for over 30 years and that experience translates to comfortable, well-appointed accommodations and delicious breakfasts for her guests. She also is a wealth of information on the local history.

The Great Valley House is loaded with history. Its original building (where you'll eat breakfast and check out the amazing 12-foot walk-in fireplace and stone sink) was constructed in the 1690s. Additions in 1740 and 1790 complete the three-story home, whose walls and floorboards could definitely tell tales of yesteryear.

Pattye has decorated the inn with period pieces and a collection of quilts that add to the historic feel. She also has a wonderful collection of period clothing on display. And the house has several acres of land that you're invited to enjoy, and a common fridge for guests to use that includes complimentary beverages. The inn is also well-situated on a main road that is close to all local sights/sites -- Valley Forge National Park (3 miles), General Warren Inne (2 to 3 miles), and Paoli Battlefield and General Wayne's birthplace (within 5 to 10 miles) to name a few.

But the biggest draw has to be Pattye's breakfasts. Ample servings of meals that take into account food allergies and preferences, served at the time you indicate (within a range Pattye discusses with you). Each breakfast begins with coffee or tea and a fruit cup or fruit and yogurt, and is followed by the main dish. Day one was a baked egg and sausage dish; day two were delightful Danish pancake balls, served with a side of sausage.

If you'll be traveling in/around Philly or to see Valley Forge, the Great Valley House is a great place to rest and replenish yourself as you take in the history that awaits in the area.

Room Tip: Since all guests must be able to climb stairs, it may not be suitable to elderly or others who have difficulty walking.
