This luxurious lodging includes 11 painstakingly restored 19th-century cottages that once housed workers from the nearby Du Pont powder mills. Each elegant room is decorated with oil paintings, reproductions of antique furniture, and four-poster or canopy beds covered with Frette linens. All have kitchenettes and marble baths; some have porches with wicker rockers. The great room, where evening hors d'oeuvres are served, has overstuffed chairs, game tables, and a stone
hearth that stretches from floor to ceiling. The inn is nestled in a series of peaceful gardens intersected with landscaped walkways.
