Accommodations Amenities Food Bar/Lounge Service Attractions Dining Nightlife Weather Tips

Accommodations

The inn has only one accommodation. If you are looking for privacy and/or peace and quiet, Triple Creek only rents to one party at a time. The suite is spacious and cozy at the same time. The main living area consists of a very comfortable Murphy bed, a sitting area with TV, sofa and coffee table, a table and chairs, a kitchenette with microwave and refrigerator. There is lots of wood and the walls are painted a soothing green color, reminiscent of the innkeeper’s Celtic heritage. The main attraction is a stunning sun room with beautiful hardwood floors, a gas fireplace, vaulted ceilings, glass-topped wicker table and chairs, lots of plants, and a two-person hot tub. The sun room is adjacent to the main accommodation and is accessible via French doors. There are also French doors from the sunroom to the outside. A bathroom with shower is located just off the sunroom. Plenty of fresh towels are provided. The hot tub made it a special luxury, yet it was very comfortable and felt like home.

Inn Amenities

The main amenity for guests is their own private sunroom with the hot tub!

Inn Food

Mary Hegarty, the innkeeper had made some wonderful fresh cookies and left an entire container of them for us. They were light-textured pizzelle-like creations that tasted like “more.” In the morning, she made breakfast for us (pre-ordered by sliding our selections under the door the night before). She prides herself on making whatever you ask for. Keith requested poached eggs, and she executed beautifully. Lori decided to take it a bit easier, and had scrambled eggs. The toast was fresh, the breakfast meats were savory, and the fruit was delicious. She brews tea the European way.

Inn Bar/Lounge

This is a small inn and does not have a bar.

Inn People/Service

Mary is a sweet person who clearly enjoys hosting people in her home. We were there for Lori’s birthday, and when Mary greeted Lori, she hugged her warmly. We had requested a bottle of champagne, and she brought out several for Lori to choose from. In lieu of chocolate (we told her we were eating healthy), she served up a plate of fruit, cheese, and crackers that was perfect. We felt welcomed and comfortable in her home.

Area/Attractions

Malvern is located in the far reaches of the Main Line (the western suburbs of Philadelphia). We were only spending one winter evening, and our plans were simply to relax in the hot tub and go out to dinner. There is a large variety of shops, museums, and restaurants nearby.

Dining

General Warren Inne - Old Lancaster Highway, Malvern, PA 610-296-3637
General Warren Inne's Home Page
The Inne is located in Malvern just a very short distance from where we were staying. The Inne has been catering to travelers since the mid-1700s. Today it is a fine dining establishment that serves lunch and dinner every day except for Sundays. Reservations are recommended, especially on weekends. While jackets are not required, we dressed up a bit. The candlelit Inne remains true to its roots, with antiques and period furniture throughout. The style is more country than formal. We had reserved early and had a nice table in one of the quieter dining rooms by a window. We had been there before (separately) for lunch, but never for dinner. The Inne is known for its fine cuisine and exquisite service.

We were seated promptly by a friendly host and had the pleasure of an extremely friendly and knowledgeable server. Lori had a shrimp appetizer and Keith had a salad. For our entrees, Lori chose some lobster ravioli (a special that evening), and Steak Au Poivre – filet mignon with three peppercorn sauce that was flambéed tableside. Since it was Lori’s birthday, we had some dessert (Lori can never pass up a pecan pie, and thankfully, this one sat low like a tart and wasn’t as decadent as it could have been). Keith is always happy with anything chocolate.

Nightlife

There are plenty of bars with entertainment in the area. We stopped for a bit at Maddie’s, along Lancaster Avenue (Route 30) in Malvern. It was a Friday evening and they had a live band playing at the large bar area in back, which was covered with canvas for winter (and is opened up in the summer). After sipping a couple drinks, we realized we were overdressed and – after being entertained by older men trying to get the attention of 20-something women – we decided to go back to our private hot tub at the inn.

Weather

Southeast Pennsylvania is in the Mid-Atlantic region and gets all four seasons. We visited the inn in January, which can be snowy. There was actually a warm snap and the weather was slightly rainy and in the 40s that day.

Tips/Suggestions

This is a great place to visit for privacy and relaxation. We strongly recommend the General Warren Inne – a bit of culinary excellence that is right around the corner. If you go, be sure to talk to Mary. She is charming and has a beautiful accent!
