Whitewing Exteriors 02 M >A New Start for The Inn at Whitewing Farm Inn

We were very excited when we got a call from the new owners at The Inn at Whitewing Farm in Kennett Square, PA this winter. The Inn had been closed for several years and now was under new ownership. Mark and I used to sneak away to this property adjacent to Longwood Gardens when we owned The Woolverton Inn to shop the area for furnishings for our new cottages…and to recharge our batteries away from the Inn. We fell in love with the Brandywine Valley area on those trips. On a recent trip, eating at our favorite local restaurant, Sovana Bistro just down from the road from the Inn, we got to know some of the neighbors when they sat next to us–none other than Joe and Jill Biden! Off topic here, but pretty funny!

Congratulations to new Innkeeper/Owners Lance and Sandy Shortt on this exciting new venture. They have years of experience running a VERY successful local restaurant so I know they can handle this. These guys are energetic and incredibly warm people and I can’t wait to see how the first year goes. It is a spectacular property.

The Inn also just launched a new site, designed by local Brandywine web guru, Seth Fox at Unica Multimedia. Some of the photos on the new site will be replaced when we visit again sometime this summer or fall.
