HARRISBURG, Pa. (September 11, 2020) – Bed & Breakfasts near Longwood Gardens are adopting new policies to enhance already rigorous cleaning protocols in light of COVID-19. While B&B’s already provide safer lodgings due to increased cleanliness and diminished crowds, local inns are now offering sanitation procedures and food service modifications as intentionally individualized as their unique buildings and histories.
In addition to meticulously conforming to all federal, state, and local directives, many innkeepers have adopted “The Bed & Breakfast Inns Promise” to protect the safety of their guests, ensuring scrupulous sterilization practices and the conscientious serving of breakfast. Various inns will also be offering contactless payment and check-in, limited table capacity, and flexible refund policies.
“This is a place that encourages rest, because rest is the key to inspiring love,” said Lori Zytkowicz, owner of Faunbrook Bed & Breakfast. “In light of COVID-19, we encourage our guests to rest knowing that we are taking extensive measures to protect their heath.”
Within the stunning, hilltop estate of Faunbrook Inn, every picturesque nook invites one’s camera and eyes to take it all in, just as the Victorian styled rooms invite one to stay in.
Wild Wisteria Bed & Breakfast, built in 1714 as part of the John Hope plantation, offers several expansive and serene common areas, as well as eight acres of lush flora and trees, fountains, and a goldfish-filled pond for guests to wander through and enjoy. At the Fairville Inn, you’ll feel miles away from reality amidst century old trees in the heart of the Brandywine Valley.
When staying at a local B&B, travelers can also take advantage of risk-free attractions, including visiting the celebrated Longwood Gardens, an 86-acre meadow garden which provides trails to discover its rolling fields, verdant wetlands, and wide variety of local flora and fauna. Several local parks and preserves, such as Brandywine Creek State Park, Marsh Creek State Park, and the White Clay Creek Preserve, deliver opportunities to observe wildlife and improve one’s fitness. For a more romantic outing, visitors can plan to visit one—or all—of the fourteen covered bridges in the area.
With new safety protocols, guests can continue to receive the personalized atmosphere and local expertise they have come to expect from B&B’s near Longwood Gardens, but they can also be assured that they are enjoying the safest amenities and attractions available.
