The Buck School was originally built in 1840. In 2005 it was reconstructed as the Buck School Inn, a completely new architectural masterpiece. The Inn is now a private, peaceful retreat with three elegant guest rooms and comfortable, spacious public areas. It features a lush, landscaped sculpture garden that visitors can explore. The Buck School Inn is located in the scenic and historic Brandywine Valley near museums, restaurants, the Longwood Gardens, and America’s Number 2 Scenic Drive.
When I discovered the Buck School, something inspired me to take on this project. The building had been abandoned and was derelict for 20 years. The trees were so overgrown it was hardly visible from the street. I suppose my keen appreciation of architecture and history piqued my interest. The renovation took two painstaking years. Every detail was a complex undertaking that challenged my patience to its limits. Yes, friends and family questioned my sanity! But I persevered knowing the end result was worth the effort. Take a look at the progress photographs. Now, my team and I work diligently to improve the physical property and the guest experience. In addition to this aspect of my life as an innkeeper, I own an organic landscape company. On my free time, I enjoy organic cooking, cycling, sailing, hiking, and traveling.
