Inn at Barley Sheaf Farm

5281 York Rd., Holicong, Pennsylvania, 18928, USA

Once the home of playwright George S. Kaufman, this remarkable country retreat has a staff that takes a devilish delight in the details. Suites, all named for Kaufman works, are exquisitely furnished with pieces like the ornate carved East Asian canopy bed in the Seven Lively Arts Suite. The 19th-century barn has original touches like wood beams and ladders, while the Manor House, whose original section dates to 1740, features exposed stone walls. Tastefully chosen art and crafts—Mercer tiles, stained glass, luscious textiles, and hand-painted murals—are sprinkled throughout. Pleasing the senses doesn't stop with the eye, however. Wine and cheese are delivered to your door when you arrive, gas fireplaces and whirlpool tubs keep you feeling toasty warm, and the on-site spa (which uses all-natural, organic products) lets you pamper yourself. A delicious breakfast is served in the glass-walled conservatory dining room, where you can also enjoy BYO dinner from Wednesday to Saturday (and brunch on weekends).
