About Eric B.
Digital Marketing Sales Executive. Entrepreneur. Adventurer. Writer. I spent many years living abroad in Puerto Rico, Los Angeles, Amsterdam, San Francisco and Bend, OR. I once attended a royal wedding in Cuernavaca, Mexico... it's a great story, ask me about it... I have two amazing sons -- both are living on the west coast. I raised them here and they loved the adventures in the woods! Great memories in this place with many more to be made. I enjoy meeting new people and inviting you into the Lodge... it is a blessing to be able to share my little slice of heaven! I look forward to meeting you upon arrival if schedules permit. Love Life!
Eric B. purchased this House in 2004
Why Eric B. chose West Chester
Because there is nothing else like the Lodge! "Lodgelivin" is the only way... Located in historic Chester county, this location offers the best of both worlds. The Brandywine Valley countryside is only minutes away, with beautiful rolling hills and amazing vistas. The borough of West Chester is close by, with amazing shopping, restaurants and bars. The property is quiet and private and provides many opportunities for inspiration -- wildlife is everywhere. It is also close to civilization and easy to access many upscale amenities. Secluded and private, the house is built to entertain, while also providing many spaces to relax and rejuvenate. Inspired by mid-century modern architecture and built in 1979, the decor has been curated over many years. It is unique and difficult to describe in words. Many guests have told me that the pictures on this site don't do enough to adequately describe the space. If you choose to stay, I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!
What makes this House unique
Amazing views from the large decks and screened in porch. Two warm fireplaces to enjoy during the colder months. Firepits for S'mores... and a hot tub for relaxing under the stars with a glass of wine and good friends! Chef's kitchen to prepare amazing meals. Open floor plan for entertaining... many rooms to allow for relaxation and privacy. Antique Brunswick regulation size pool table and air hockey too! There are five bedrooms (2 kings, 2 queens and 2 twins) plus an additional private room with a queen bed -- 12 people can sleep in comfortable beds! I invite up to 16 to sleep over, but I do make exceptions for additional fees. I have hosted many wonderful guests, as well as special events, including corporate retreats, birthday parties, bachelor(ette) parties, family reunions, murder mysteries, and many more! I look forward to hosting your special event here at the Lodge!

Beautiful, perfectly maintained house on a gorgeous piece of property. We held my husband’s 40th birthday party here and couldn’t have been happier.
Thank you so much for your kind review! Great to hear the 40th birthday was a memorable one.
Please come back again anytime!
Perfect location for going to a Longwood Gardens!
This was a great house. Wish we could have stayed longer. I plan on going back with a group of ladies in the future and making sure to get some fire pit and hot tub time in as well as really use the amazing kitchen!!!
Our whole group slept well.
It was just delightful.
Thank you so much DrueAnne! I enjoyed meeting and hosting you and your family. All the best!
Perfect for our family gathering - impressive property! Decor, layout, amenities, location - nothing could have been improved upon.

Lovely family getaway
This is a great home to escape with a large group. There is room for everyone to feel comfortable and have fun.
Thank you Christine! It was a pleasure to host you and your family during the holidays! All the best, Eric
This place is awesome!
I rented Eric’s house for my annual staff retreat, it could not have been more perfect! It’s spacious and very well decorated but cozy at the same time. It’s the perfect place to host an intimate gathering and Eric is an excellent host. Highly recommended.
Fantastic 80th Birthday venue!
We threw our Dad an 80th birthday party in Erics home and it was wonderful! Lots of room to spread out, views from every room, lots of fun for the kids as well. We made memories for a life time, thank you Eric!
Thank you so much Lauren! Great to hear you enjoyed it and looking forward to hosting the 81st celebration!
