Exciting things are coming to Historic Dilworthtown!

Painter House Suites, LLC
is happy to announce that the unique, historic property which for generations has served as a gathering spot for locals and visitors alike is getting a new lease on life … a 21st century vision for an 18th century treasure!

The buildings formerly known as the Dilworthtown Inn, the Blue Pear Bistro, and the Inn Keeper’s Kitchen – and their surrounding outbuildings and property – are under new ownership. Our mission is to utilize the outbuildings to accommodate small business owners that, combined with the restaurants, will create a working and leisure destination for generations to come.

UPDATE: Ground Provisions is Now Open in the former Inn Keeper’s Kitchen location (McCarthy House). See our News & Updates section on this page for more details. Click Here for a view of our Campus Map.

Our goal is to maintain the charm, elegance, and character of the property, while offering our small business community spaces for their restaurants, specialty retail, luxury services, office spaces, and much more. We are partnering with contractors who share our vision and are committed to preserving these beautiful buildings.

If you are a restaurateur or a small business owner interested in leasing space, you can contact our realtor, Anthony Nanni of BHHS Fox & Roach, at 215.915.9967 or email anthony.nanni@foxroach.com.
