The holidays are finally here, which means lots of food, shopping, and time spent with your loved ones—and all the stress that comes with that. We don’t know about you, but once January rolls around, we’re ready for a proper vacation.
Images of wintry wonderlands make us all want to venture away to Vermont, or even as far as the beautiful vistas of Colorado. But travelling that distance is time-consuming, and not to mention plenty expensive. What if there was a way to take a quick winter getaway near Cherry Hill? You’re in luck because Philadelphia is just a short drive away, and is filled with idyllic inns that are perfect for a wintry weekend away from home. Here are our top picks for inns for a winter getaway near Cherry Hill.
Cornerstone Bed & Breakfast
If you’re a total history buff, taking a weekend trip to Philadelphia is the perfect way to get away this winter. The Cornerstone Bed & Breakfast was built in 1865 as a private residence and has since been converted to accommodate many people at once. The elegant carpentry and Victorian flourishes, like the original hardwood flooring, transport you back to the 19th century, but walk outside and you’re right near the hustle and bustle of contemporary Philadelphia. It’s also a convenient location for parents of students at Drexel University!
La Reserve Bed & Breakfast
Yet another quaint inn in Philadelphia, La Reserve B&B is located right in the center of the historic district. The inn is composed of two converted town homes dating back to 1850, so you can experience urban American living as it was nearly two hundred years ago. There are even discounts available if you are looking for somewhere to book for an extended stay. Also, the manual keys are not only a throwback—they make the inn an accommodating place for those who observe the Sabbath!
Manayunk Chambers Guest House
If you are looking for a full-service boutique hotel experience, look no further. Manayunk Chambers Guest House is located in historic Philadelphia, and is just a 17 minute train ride from the busy downtown district. The three rooms available are each themed and completely unique, ensuring you’ll get an experience tailored to your tastes.
Philadelphia Bella Vista Bed & Breakfast
Bella Vista is known as the most “convenient” neighborhood in central Philly, and with the short walk to the Avenue of the Arts, Convention Center, and Central Business District, we know you’ll agree. The Philadelphia Bella Vista Bed & Breakfast is the perfect winter getaway near Cherry Hill for those looking to experience truly eclectic design in a stately, historic townhome. You’ll wake up in the morning and smell the aromas beckoning you from the Italian Market, just a short walk down the street.
