Now that it's fall, we're done leaving the house. Between football Sundays and a looming (but joyful!) descent into the holiday season, it's time to get your entertaining space in order. These three homes offer fabulous spaces to entertain guests or just kick back yourself.

1850 Chautauqua Trail, Malvern
Monthly taxes: $1,780
Tell me all about it: This Malvern log and timber home is closer to a mountain retreat than a Main Line family home. It's surrounded by more than 5 acres of woods. Not only is the great room enormous and complete with soaring ceilings, the property boasts a private theater, a large wet bar, and a large, wrap-around deck.

330 Leopard Road, Berwyn
Monthly taxes: $3,825
Tell me all about it: The outdoor entertaining spaces in this six-bedroom Berwyn home are fabulous, including a beautiful in-ground pool and hot tub. Inside, your guests will enjoy a large gaming room with bar, wine room, theater, gym and a full bath. Bonus: The master suite is the perfect getaway for when you've just about had it with the company.

3202 Saint Davids Road, Newtown Square 
Monthly taxes: $5,207 
Tell me all about it: This stunning four-bedroom home was once the carriage house of the 150-acre Dunminning Estate. It retains many of the charms from its building in 1887 (think: diamond-mullioned windows, soaring ceilings and an amazing great room) along with modern upgrades such as a gourmet kitchen featuring granite counters and stainless steel appliances alongside a butler's pantry. Guests will love the wide-open floor plan when you're entertaining; the space includes space for a living room, a piano, billiards and a full bar.
