History

In the late 1600s, William Penn owned the property. In 1711, 50 acres were purchased by William Morgan, who built part of the farmhouse. After William Morgan's death, Joseph Ambler bought the land. It stayed within his family until John Roberts, who married an Ambler daughter, acquired the land in 1825. He added a living room and dining room to the farmhouse. In 1983, more than 100 years and many owners later, Richard Allman bought 12 acres of the property. He is the current owner of Joseph Ambler Inn.

Location

Philadelphia is 40 minutes from the inn. It is 40 minutes from Philadelphia International Airport, 16 minutes from Doylestown and 26 minutes from King of Prussia.

    Kratz Wedding 3/15/19

    We chose our wedding venue to be at the Joseph Ambler Inn because it was the rustic and romantic venue we had been looking for. The staff was amazing, and the food was out of this world! The venue is amazing for pictures, and when the sun is beginning to set, the whole venue glows. We are so thankful we chose this venue. The bridal suite is incredible, as well as the rooms for staying overnight. We stayed in the Allman(honeymoon) suite and it did cost a little extra but was so, so worth it. They have complimentary breakfast the next day too! Our guests loved the fact that they could just walk Back to their rooms when the wedding was over instead of having to drive home. We will continue to go back here for our anniversaries!

    Every time we are asked to create flowers for an event at JAI -we jump at the chance. The incredibly lovely venue, coupled with the extraordinary staff members-make it one of our very favorite "field trips". Every season shines on their beautiful "oasis" in the middle of Montgomeryville- you're close to everything but feel as though you have taken a step back in time- to a place where the simple pleasures can be savored and enjoyed. We at An Enchanted Florist at Skippack Village highly endorse the Joseph Ambler Inn as one of the premier venues in our area and look forward to our next wedding there :) Jill and the entire Enchanted Team in Skippack
