My fiance and I stayed at Faunbrook in May 2014. We had a lovely time. The grounds are beautiful. The restored historic house was elegant, clean, and comfortable. The B&B owner and staff were friendly and professional. The location is perfect; there is a beautiful and easy 5 - 10 minute walk into the center of town. We would definitely recommend this B&B.

I was in West Chester for a short conference, and was not interested in staying at the two hotels in town recommended by the conference, so I stayed at Faunbrook instead - what a great decision that was! My room (Isabel) was beautiful, and made me feel like a queen. It had a big, comfy canopy bed, lots of space and pretty details, and a wonderful, claw foot tub in the bathroom. There is a soap/bath products store in town - Silvanus - where I purchased some wonderful lavender bubble bath to use for my evening bubble bath. The breakfast was wonderful, too. The first morning, we had fabulous raspberry pancakes and a veggie frittata (I don't eat meat). The second morning, I they made me another kind of veggie frittata along with delicious scones. The coffee was great, too! The owner is very friendly, and the downstairs area inviting with lots of books, including a photo album with photos and articles about the Darlington family and past owners of Faunbrook - not to be missed! Faunbrook is also an easy walk into West Chester, so I walked back and forth to the conference one day as well. All, in all, a perfect stay at the Faunbook and visit to West Chester.

This is the second time my wife and I have stayed here. The quality, friendliness and value make this place great. We plan on coming back.

Longwood Gardens are a must. West Chester and Kennett Square are nice towns to walk around.

My husband and I stayed here in early October, visiting our daughter at her boarding school nearby. The B&B itself is gorgeous: the big yard, giving a feeling of being out in the country, the lovingly restored and maintained historic house, and the beautiful, luxuriously-appointed guest rooms. But the icing on the cake (literally) was the extra effort our hosts went to for us. It was our daughter's birthday, and they let us stage a little celebration for her in the dining room that night; we brought the cake and candles, and they supplied plates, napkins, forks, cake server, etc, and cleaned up afterwards. It was her first birthday away from home, and it really helped to be able to celebrate it in a beautiful, home-like setting. Then they got up quite early the next morning, to serve us breakfast before we had to leave for the Parents' Day activities. Thank you so much!

After the big event at Kings Mill, this is the perfect getaway. We arrived late and all was prepared for our arrival. Our car and luggage were delivered early in the day prior to our wedding. When we arrived, champagne was ready, bed was ready and next morning, breakfast was ready!!! Life is great!!!

Thank you for the great hospitality. We had work to do that afternoon and loved the open space to spread things out. Great service and wonderful historic place!

My husband and I were married at the Faunbrook in October, 2008 and it was just the most perfect, personal, warm atmosphere to celebrate with our friends and family. We originally had booked with the previous innkeeper whom was just a wonderful woman and a big part of our reason for booking, shortly after the inn changed management and we were very pleasantly reassured by the current innkeepers Lori and Steve who helped make our day special and unique. We then again stayed on our wedding anniversary in 2011 which was a surprise by my husband, whom did not remember the name of the room we had stayed in. There must have been some confusion because all rooms were previously booked under our names so Lori did the best she could from memory. When we arrived my husband was devastated that it was not the same room and although I was still so happy just to be back there, he wanted to make this special as we were expecting our first baby at the time. He mentioned it to Lori to see if we could switch the rooms, and unfortunately it had been booked for sometime. This did not at all ruin the wonderful memories we were able to share and Lori was such a wonderful hostess she comped the room entirely for the misunderstanding! The rooms and detail of this location are absolutely beautiful, it is extremely clean and breakfast is always wonderful. We had an amazing breakfast the day after our wedding with our entire family and it was just as memorable during our revisit. Thanks again Lori and Steve for being such gracious hosts!

The Faunbrook Inn is in a great location, close to West Chester University, Winterthur, Longwood Gardens and downdown West Chester's many restaurants. The Inn is lovely, full of antiques and comfortable rooms. The bathrooms are modern and very nice. Laurie is a great cook and she prepares a wonderful breakfast every morning.

Not wanting to spend Christmas in a hotel room, my husband, daughter and I decided to book rooms at Faunbrook. Best decision we ever made! Faunbrook was gloriously decorated inside and out and was a wonderful place to bring family & friends to spend time in the many living spaces on the first floor. Very warm and welcoming! The rooms were comfortable and spacious, all with full private bathrooms. Steve & Lori were wonderful hosts. We liked the fact that the breakfasts were made with farm-fresh eggs and meats. The cinnamon bread was to die for and we highly recommend Lori's pastries....AWESOME! Anytime we come back to the West Chester, PA area, we will be making reservations at Faunbrook. For the value and the comfort (and the best Bananas Foster French Toast that I have ever had), we highly recommend it.

We stayed at Faunbrook B&B this weekend. The B&B is full of history. It is a beautiful property. Lori and Steve were great hosts. Lori is also a great cook. The breakfast both days was awsome! I highly recommend this B&B to anyone looking for a nice place to get away.

We were married at Faunbrook B&B last Saturday, 8/13/11 amid our dearest friends and family. Lori and Steve were so easy to work with, and very flexible for meetings and walkthroughs with our photographer, caterer, and my future in-laws. We had guests staying there Wed~Sunday nights, and had rented the whole B&B for Friday and Saturday nights, for the ceremony and catered reception to be held there. I really don't know where to begin in complimenting/reviewing them, and if you would like to speak to us directly, ask Lori or Steve for our phone number. Whilst the B&B has lovely period furnishings, we did do some decorating and they were very easy to work with in our ideas. The photos from our stay and the ceremony/reception showcased the lovely environment very nicely. Lori is an amazing chef -- the lemon scones are really to die for! And both Lori and Steve are very friendly, hospitable, professional, and checked in just enough with us to know that they were there if we needed them, and they were not at all intrusive in any way, at any time. We live literally 5 blocks away from Faunbrook and we will be singing its high praises to all our friends and family. Two of our wedding party have already booked their own weekend getaway having enjoyed the experience so much! I am hoping to snag a couple of rooms last minute for a mini-Junior High reunion over Labor Day weekend since our wedding was so micro -- 14 people total including the officiant, photographer, and flutist -- I couldn't invite two of my best friends. Lori and Steve also worked well with our caterer (Olive Branch of West Chester), Bob Wood Photography, and Officiant, Taya Shepard of AlteredVows -- each and all of whom I also highly recommend. Thank you Lori and Steve for making our special day even more so! Everyone loved your space and you! Valerie & Kyle

What a wonderful and welcoming stay. Owner Lori was accomodaring beyond compare. From not sweating it when I arrived three hours before check in to finding me an old towel I could take with me to an outdoor event where rain was expected, she was incredibly service oriented. The room was beautiful and the bathroom contained a HUGE bathtub that was impossible to resist. I'm only sorry I couldn't stay longer.

I truley enjoyed my stay in the "Darlington" suite at Faunbrook B&B! Steve & Lori provided an excellent service from the delicious breakfast to great tid-bits about local "hot spots" to visit while in town.

Beautiful grounds and building and we were made to feel right at home. Sitting in front of a cozy fire in the sitting room was just the perfect way to spend a rainy evening, after a delicious dinner out.

The innkeepers were very friendly and offered lots of good advice for our fall weekend. We highly recommend it.

I would have to say that we had a terrific time at Faunbrook! It was a beautiful place and the love and care that Lori and Steve put into the place is quite evident. Neither are rich Barons or seated royalty. Their labor of love for the mansion is one that allows the world to glimpse a view of the past and enjoy such! This couple is wonderful with a smile of fun and caring. As a former White House Chef and Camp David Resort Manager, I enjoyed the baked quiche dish with Mornay sauce, for breakfast. Since we also own the #1 ranked B&B for history, we evaluated Faunbrook from a keen eye and found lots of love, tons of care and plenty of smiles! We also were extremely jealous over the beautiful pieces of furniture in the rooms, WOW! What special antiques they have. Martin CJ Mongiello The Inn of the Patriots B & B

We stayed at the Faunbrook B&B during the annual bicycle race in West Chester. Lori & Steve are very friendly and were happy to give us a tour of their historic Bed and Breakfast. We walked to West Chester (a little more than 1 mile) and had a great stay. The breakfast was delicious and portions were more than ample. We liked the dog too!

I had the opportunity to stay at Faunbrook on an extended business trip recently and I could not have asked for a more comfortable stay or better hosts than Steve & Lori. They are both excellent authorities on local restaurants and attractions and newcomers to the area will not be disappointed with their recommendations. The inn itself is a delightful combination of historically authentic architecture that they have made warm & inviting. Those who feel that elegant bathrooms are an important part of a stay away from home will not be disappointed. Faunbrook has several rooms with baths that are sinfully sensuous. Although my stay this time was for business I would not hesitate to return for a weekend of fun. George Ryan Alpharetta, GA

My stay at Faunbrook was disappointing to say the least. First, the breakfast had skimpy proportions. We also did not like how their dog came up to the tables while we were eating. The rooms was somewhat clean, but we saw what appeared to be animal paw print stains on the carpet, something we did not see when another proprietor owned the B&B a few years ago. We also did not appreciate the fact that the proprietors did not make themselves available during an event we had there along with showing attitude to our guests when making requests. There was also a lack of communication of when we had to check out of our rooms making us feel rushed. The bottom line is, we are the customer and if you cannot provide a service then you have no business having a business.

Faunbrook B&B is run by its newest owners, Lori and Steve, a younger couple who really have their heart in the business. When we arrived they offered us a variety of local wines which we enjoyed as we strolled the grounds stopping at several water features and admiring the historic 1850 mansion. Lori gave us a tour of the many rooms, each just as elegant as the website had shown. The breakfasts were excellent and filling. While there, QVC video-taped a future show displaying oriental carpets; QVC frequently tapes shows at Faunbrook where a Victorian setting is the preferred backdrop. The taping did not interfere with our stay but added some interesting variety. Both Lori and Steve made us feel at home and made suggestions regarding places to eat and local attractions.

My work takes me to many locales and for accomodations I usually seek out small inns. For years I have been privileged to stay in many fine establishments. I recently stayed at Faunbrook (1/27 & 1/28/09). This historic B&B offers character, comfort, charm, and luxurious rooms. Lori & Steve, Faunbrook's hosts, could not be more helpful or welcoming. This is one of those places where you can be more productive simply being there. I highly recommend it.

I attended my cousins wedding there last week and I was extremely impressed! My husband and I love B&B's and have stayed in many. This B&B is MAGNIFICANT in appearance. My cousin and his new wife took us on a tour of the bedrooms and everyone in it's own way was BEAUTIFUL. As for the wedding itself, the bride came down an elaborate staircase while her groom waited for her in a beautiful living room with a grand piano and a fireplace. It was so moving and elegant to say the least. Our brunch took place on the property's porch and the view was gorgeous!! I am hoping to get back there for a weekend getaway so I can enjoy comfort in one of those beautiful rooms. If you are looking to get away for a nice romantic weekend or if you are having a wedding/party, this B&B is the place for it.

I was so fortunate to have selected Faunbrook B&B for my overnight business stay in West Chester last week. The proprietors - Lori & Steve - were just as nice as they could be. The property is beautiful, well appointed, and so historic! Steve gave me a great tour of the place and the background on it's history, and then was kind enough to suggest a wonderful restaurant for dinner and then call and make a reservation for me! I will definitely be going back again to stay again when I have business in the area. In fact, I'm really looking forward to it! It's one of the nicest B&B's I've stayed in.

Wow, this place was amazing. Beautiful property, absolutely fantastic food, and wonder hostess (Pat). Everything was wonderful. Can't wait to come back!
