has listed Hummelstown’s The Inn at Westwynd Farm to its Top 10 U.S. Bed & Breakfast list.

“It’s a true honor to be chosen for the Top 10 U.S. B&B’s award, and we are thrilled that our hard work and that our staff has set us apart,” says Carolyn Troxell, innkeeper., an international B&B reservation website, began honoring 10 B&Bs each November across the country. Finalists were chosen based on an analysis of traveler reviews, and winners were selected by guest judges including Michael Franco, travel writer for TravelMag; Stirling Kelso, freelance travel writer, Travel + Leisure; Carol Morse, features editor, SmarterTravel; and Laura Motta, director of publishing, Shermans Travel.

“These award-winning inns like The Inn at Westwynd Farm really showcase bed-and-breakfasts and inns that often become a destination to discover and not just a place to stay, says Matt Laessig, general manager, “Travelers select bed-and-breakfasts because they enjoy staying in a one-of-a-kind place that offers not only character, special amenities and unmatched hospitality, but also enables them to discover new experiences.”

The Inn at Westwynd Farm is located on an equestrian farm that allows guests to watch horses roam through the pastures. Amenities include antiques, fireplaces, Jacuzzis and more. Other inns on the list include the Inn at Harbor Hill Marina in Niantic, Conn., and The Provincetown Hotel at Gabriel’s in Provincetown, Mass.
