There is something magical about the setting. This historic inn set by Wissahickon on a biking, hiking and riding trail provides a sense of life lived more slowly. On a recent trip, the people who sat near us on the porch had come on horseback. As we enjoyed the scenery and excellent food, someone came up the trail leading a horse. Their ride had worked his way out of his hitching knot and was being returned by a friendly hiker. Now where else would you have that kind of experience. In winter months, you literally forget what century you are in. With a fire in the grate and the slightly musty sense of history enveloping you - good food and warm beverages provide an instant time travel experience, particularly if you emerge and show has covered the path that leads to the parking lot.
Pros: Quiet tranquil setting
Cons: You do need to know how to get here... it's hidden away
