Bala Farm Cottage is a wonderfully cozy stone cottage, located less than 3 miles from the center of West Chester, on a hilltop in a quiet neighborhood. It has a charming study downstairs with a bay window looking out towards majestic trees, and an entry hall that ends with a wet bar, equipped with a refrigerator, coffee machine, toaster oven and microwave. The original curved staircase leads to the upstairs bedroom with queen bed and a spacious bathroom. You'll love your stay in the Cottage!

Le logement
Bala Farm Cottage, located 2 miles from the center of West Chester, was built around 1850 to serve as a "library" (1800's version of a man cave, we think) at a time when the main Bala Farm house (built in 1759) was being used as a boarding school for boys. It's undoubtedly been employed in a variety of functions since then, and when we bought the property we thought it would make a perfect guest cottage.

We've made a few changes to give the cottage some of the comforts that help make a very enjoyable stay. The kitchenette has a small refrigerator and microwave, in addition to a Keurig coffee machine with complimentary pods provided, a small oven, toaster and a kettle. Combined with a comfortable queen bed in the upstairs bedroom and a charming study downstairs with a bay window looking out towards a beautiful, majestic Ginkgo tree (one of the biggest in PA!), Bala Farm Cottage is the perfect place to spend a relaxing weekend in West Chester.

There is a large stone fire pit just steps from the cottage that guests are welcome to use, with adirondack chairs and picnic table nearby, that you may find perfect for enjoying an evening glass of wine or cold beer outdoors.

Please note that the house and cottage are within a small development. However, we are on top of a hill at the end of a cul de sac and surrounded by trees, so there is a private feel and you hardly notice when you are on the property and in the cottage, but you will notice when you drive into the neighborhood.

We look forward to welcoming you for your stay at Bala Farm Cottage!

West Chester, Pennsylvanie, États-Unis

The cottage is only a 5 minute drive from the center of West Chester, and history abounds in the area. In fact, Bala Farm is located just off Birmingham Road, considered the "spine" of the Battle of Brandywine, and which British Troops marched down in September of 1777. Battlefield sites are just minutes away, as are multiple historic locations...some noted for their role in the battle, and others for their longevity and beauty.

If natural beauty is your cup of tea, then you've got plenty of options. The world-renowned Longwood Gardens is only a scenic 15 minute drive away, and highly recommended. Downtown Kennett Square is just five minutes further from Longwood Gardens. You may also opt to venture further south towards Wilmington to visit some of the other gardens and estates established by the du Pont family Winterthur, Nemours, Hagley Museum & Library). There are miles of hiking trails at the Stroud Nature Preserve (5 minutes away) and at various spots along the Brandywine River in addition to the battlefield sites. Ridley Creek State park is a little further away (20 minutes), but is another highly recommended option with even more miles of hiking trails. Or, just sit outside the cottage and enjoy the beautiful trees on the grounds!

If you're coming to West Chester to visit a student at the university, it's only 5 minutes away, and there are no shortage of establishments at which to feed hungry students. There are over 65 restaurants in the borough with enough variety to satisfy just about any request, and plenty of drinking establishments as well. We'll be happy to make some recommendations!

Further from West Chester, you can head east to enjoy the world class city of Philadelphia, or head west and venture through Amish farmlands. Again, the options are many!
