Welcome, to The Inn at Grace Winery

A historic Brandywine valley

The Inn at Grace Winery is a tranquil haven situated on thirty five acres in the historic Brandywine Valley. Our original Quaker farmhouse dates to 1734 and the Hemphill family added a magnificent Georgian addition in 1815. The Inn housed the British after the battle of the Brandywine in 1777, was a safe house for the underground railroad and the farmhouse’s third floor was a civil war infirmary. The estate vineyard is just off the Manor House. The side porch is the perfect location to watch the sun sink behind the vineyard while enjoying your favorite Grace Winery vintage.

Very cool winery. Friendly, helpful staff and a great location. Will happily visit again!

Ivan S. Winery Customer

The staff could not be friendlier, nicer, more helpful. The grounds are breathtaking. The garden room wasn’t extremely large but beautiful and spotless. My partner and I celebrated 3 years together here and I can’t wait to come back! Maria at the tasting room was funny and sweet. Deanna checked us in and was so nice too! Little basket of baked goods was delicious and perfect. Breakfast was great! Wine and beer, delicious!! I was nervous with other reviews I read but I am so glad we came anyway. Do yourself a favor and come see for yourself. Don’t let bad reviews deter you! Oh and there are horses and alpacas, a pool and hot tub, and a large, beautiful porch! ♥️ This place is PERFECT! If they also had dinner, there would be no need to leave the property!!

Bernice C. Garden Room Visitor

I stayed with my husband for 1 night and I did not want to leave. It was so peaceful and pleasant. There were 2 girls named Cassandra that were so sweet and helpful, also a Maria or Marie I believe. Overall, I will be returning. Favorite part was the open bar from 5-6 while my husband and I played pool.

Tisha T. Winery and Overnight Visitor

We arrived on Friday August 2nd and Kaitlyn greeted us and made us feel so welcomed. My husband and I celebrated our 2 year anniversary at the inn for 2 nights. We stayed in the Herb room which was perfect for the both of us. We had food at the barn but the bartender was not friendly. I feel as though guests should be able to get some complimentary wine tastings. The food was excellent. We then enjoyed Happy Hour and were happy to meet and chat with the owner. We enjoyed the grounds, the staff, the pool and hot tub and the animals on the grounds. We highly recommend this place for a weekend getaway.
