About

The Pennsbury Inn's five sitting rooms, seven bedrooms, dining rooms and eight acres of landscaped grounds comfortably blend colonial heritage with casual elegance.A study done a few years ago by a well known historical architect and six Penn grad students, reveals much of the Inn's past. The inn is a large but cozy retreat with uneven floorboards, slanted doorways, winding staircases and walk-in fireplaces. On acreage purchased from William Penn's Commissioners, the Inn's original dwelling house was erected in 1714. It was enlarged mid-century by a stone and brick addition and in the 19th century with a clapboard extension. Until recently a private home, owners Cheryl and Chip Grono have returned the structure to its 1800's role as a country inn. Let Cheryl turn down your covers and leave a home baked goody on your pillow and start you off the next morning with a sumptuous breakfast on your next special trip to the romantic Brandywine Valley. All the rooms have feather beds, modern baths, phones, computer modems & wireless, as well as cable TV.

Great Time

5 on October 08, 2013

Even the proximity to the road didn't bother our stay. We had a wonderful room overlooking the beautiful garden. Everything in the room was tasteful and clean.The breakfasts were outstanding. We walked through the garden. Directions and information about local restaurants and attractions was appreciated. We had a wonderful time.

This is truly the best bed and breakfast I have ever had the pleasure of staying at. Chip and Cheryl go above and beyond to make the stay an unforgettable and pleasurable one. Every detail is paid attention to and nothing goes overlooked. I was astounded at everything. I would highly recommend this bed and breakfast to anyone!!!


Enjoyable experience in Chadd's Ford.

We spent a pleasant two days at the Pennsbury Inn. Our hosts were gracious and helpful, our room comfortable and pleasant, and the gardens were beautiful. I would definitely return if ever in that part of PA again.


Great Stay at Pennsbury Inn

The Pennsbury Inn is in a perfect location for viewing the Brandywine River Valley. So close to the gardens, homes and art of the area. The hosts are most welcoming and there are so many great details in the home and the beautiful garden.


Outstanding bed and breakfast!
