The Kennett House Bed & Breakfast offers guests the casual elegance of a magnificent granite four square mansion in Kennett Square, PA. This Brandywine Valley bed & breakfast built in 1910 is nestled in the historic borough of Kennett Square, PA and features beautiful chestnut and rosewood woodwork, antique furnishings, and oriental rugs. The Kennett House is within walking distance of art galleries, specialty shops, and fine dining. It is minutes from all of the Brandywine Valley attractions and 3 miles from Longwood Gardens, the world's premier horticultural display garden.

We stayed here for four nights while visiting the DuPont Gardens, and other area attractions. It had great reviews, and deserves them. We stayed in the Longwood Suite which was spacious, attractive, comfortable, and clean. Gilja was very helpful with anything we needed; and is an excellent breakfast chef. It was an easy walk to downtown restaurants in Kennett Square, and short drives to all the Brandywine River Valley attractions. Kennett House is also a great building. So glad we chose it.

Need to walk stairs but rooms and open areas have amenities not normally provided. Breakfast was good but not overstuffing. Appreciated that! Convenient location to fabulous downtown stores. Relatively quiet despite location. Nice touches to interior, great sitting porch and an outstanding wireless internet connection.

We enjoyed three nights at Gilja's wonderful B and B! The room had an alcove for computer and tv use. Gilja kept the house nice and cool during the hot weather. (An old house, but has central air!) And talk about the breakfasts! Wonderful stay!

Very convenient to downtown. Just a short walk. I was going to a show at The Kennett Flash and wanted to stay overnight. Charming house in pristine condition and wonderful host.

The inn is located within walking distance of downtown Kennett Square, with several restaurants and shops only 0.3 miles away. It is 11-20 minutes driving time to Longwood Gardens or Winterthur, and less than an hour to the Philadelphia Airport. The inn is quiet, and there is not a lot of street noise. The rooms are very clean and pleasant. The breakfasts are very good. I would stay there again.

The inn is lovely, and we felt truly welcomed! Gilja is a wonderful hostess and a delicious cook. It's nice to be close to restaurants in Kennett Square, as well as an easy drive to the Gardens. We will be back!

This is our second time at Kennett House B&B, and we can't imagine staying any place else in the area. The Delaware Room is cozy and has all the amenities you could ask for. Bottled water and simple snacks are always available. Gilja's breakfasts are outstanding. Her helpfulness and warmth make this an ideal place to stay while in the area. We will come back!

We plan on returning to this wonderful home. The Innkeeper was very helpful in accommodating our late-night arrival by providing instructions. Don't let my room rating sway you - the room itself was outstanding but we selected a room with a detached bathroom. Our fault. The Innkeeper was willing to move us to a room with a private bathroom but, since we were only there for a weekend, decided to stay in the room. The Innkeeper's breakfast was just right to get us going in the morning.
