Built by a father for his son, the Mount Joy Historic House in Pennsylvania – also known as the Peter Legaux Mansion – retains much of the homely cosiness that a family property should. For your visit to this 1730’s house, listed on the National Register of Historic Places, book your stay nearby with Culture Trip.

Hanging out on the outskirts of Philadelphia, the Mount Joy Historic House was built around 1735 by Peter Legaux, a gristmill owner who also established the first commercial vineyard in the country. The Peter Legaux Mansion is just one of the many charming colonial buildings constructed around the City of Brotherly Love. See centuries-old history surrounded by a burgeoning food scene when you stay at these hotels near the Mount Joy Historic House.

Since Wm. Mulherin’s Sons is operating out of a century-old whiskey bottling facility, it feels like every inch of every suite is aged to perfection. From the custom-made furniture to vintage rugs and hand-picked artwork, the four uniquely curated rooms are nearly as exceptional as the craft cocktails at their street-level restaurant. We suggest taking it to your room because wood-fired pizza just seems to taste better surrounded by hardwood floors, exposed brick walls and soapstone countertops.
