PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — There’s a vanishing breed of romantic getaway lodging. KYW’s Jay Lloyd laments the loss of another small country hotel and suggests a stay at those remaining, before it’s too late.

Broadway musical giant Richards Rogers wrote an ode to a small hotel at the Stockton Inn not far from New Hope. Sadly the iconic Inn closed last month, a victim of the times. But there are a few vintage small hotels around our area that still exude the charm of the past for a relaxing getaway. Among my favorites is the Inn at St. Peters Village in Chester County where guests can find a clear rushing stream at the back door.

In nearby Berks County, the Yellow House Hotel near Douglasville had been a stop on the stagecoach route. It still offers period furnished rooms, a well populated dining room and a bar that evokes a country gathering spot.
