  • Introduction

    Harlan Log House

    The Harlan Log House is an 18th Century Quaker homestead in the Brandywine Valley of Chadds Ford, Chester County, Pennsylvania.

    Nestled on five serene acres, The Harlan Log House features canopy beds, woodburning fireplaces, a water garden, and a sitting porch with rustic rockers. The porch overlooks the 1814 stone springhouse and the water garden's fountain.

    The Harlan Log House is located three miles from Longwood Gardens, Winterthur Museum, the Brandywine River Museum and the Chadds Ford Winery.

    The Harlan Log House has been standing on its Chester County, Pennsylvania for over 250 years. The original acreage was purchased by Quaker George Harlan in 1710 and deeded to his son Joshua "in consideration of Fatherly love and affection." Now listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the tranquil five acre setting on a quiet road welcomes travelers. There are two suites on separate floors each featuring a bedroom with woodburning fireplace, private bath with tub and tile shower, and a sitting room.
