Why We Like This Place

• This 1740 farmhouse played a role in the American Revolution. Situated at the edge of what is now Valley Forge National Historical Park, it hosted Louis Duportail, a French general and the army’s chief engineer, who designed fortifications here that enabled Washington’s troops to hold off an attack.

• The bucolic grounds offer the perfect setting. Three woodsy acres feature a charming wooden bridge, old-growth trees, large lawns and a gazebo—all excellent backdrops for your ceremony, cocktail reception and photos.

• You can celebrate inside the gracious farmhouse as well. Invite your guests for dinner and dancing on the Federal-styled first floor or try a more intimate reception in the second-story sitting room. And take advantage of the lovely patio that can be tented.
