The mansion at the Inn at Villanova

Many of you—since we can only imagine the amount of Nova-alum readers we’ve got!—might be familiar with the Villanova Conference Center and Montrose Mansion on Villanova’s campus right off the Main Line. Although the spaces were always owned by the university (and functioned as a kind of combo event space), they were run by Aramark—until the school decided to take all operations in-house this past fall.

Soon after, in late November, renovations began—and by June, the new space will be up and running as The Inn at Villanova University (the mansion has not been officially renamed yet).

PW Reader Ring: Kierstin & Jeff!

Kierstin's ring!

Kierstin’s ring!

The couple: Kierstin Levan and Jeff Hildebrand, from Pottstown.

The ring: Jeff and I never went ring shopping together, but he knew of a few requests: I love rose gold and really wanted an oval cut stone. Well, I’m a lucky girl because he designed my ring with both in mind! He even added his own touches with seven side stones in the front and back. It jazzes up the bling, since the band is solid rose gold.

He asked one of my best friends to go with him to local jeweler, E.G. Landis in Boyertown and the rest is history. He did a fabulous job and the ring is everything I could have imagined.
