Give as a Gift

Historic Inn with Award-Winning Restaurant

Joseph Ambler Inn can trace its origins all the way back to William Penn, the founder of Pennsylvania and one of America’s elder statesmen. Penn granted the land on which the Joseph Ambler Inn currently stands to the estate’s first owner. In the early 18th century, the estate owner built a farmhouse on 12 acres of rolling eastern Pennsylvania countryside. Today this land contains five historic buildings, including the original farmhouse, that collectively tell the story of the inn.

Many additions have come within the last 30 years. Present-day owner Richard Allman has modernized the property while keeping history at the forefront of the inn experience. Standard and deluxe rooms feature a mix of period antiques and upscale amenities, such as cable TV and WiFi.

A complimentary full country breakfast is prepared each morning. Later in the day, you can return to Joseph Ambler Inn's restaurant to use your dinner credit toward pan-roasted chilean sea bass, seared venison, and pheasant milanese. The restaurant has an elegant atmosphere and is decked out with random-width hardwood floors, handcrafted cherry-wood tables, and original exposed-stone walls. While you’re here, try a glass or bottle from the extensive wine list, winner of a 2013 Wine Spectator Award of Excellence.

North Wales, Pennsylvania: Rolling Countryside Close to Philadelphia

The village of North Wales is located less than an hour north of the bright lights of Philadelphia, close to Valley Forge National Historic Park. It was there that General George Washington engineered his Continental Army during a winter encampment in 1777. Today a welcome center at the site of the historic location features artifacts, exhibits, and a short film.

For a nice day trip, head to nearby Lambertville, New Jersey, where you can browse the storefronts of more than 40 vendors selling antique furniture, vintage clothing, costume jewelry, or rare kewpie dolls resembling Grover Cleveland. Or hit the Montgomery County Wine Trail to enjoy tastings and picnics at Pennsylvania's underrated vineyards.
