The proprietor allowed us early entry and was very welcoming. The location and B&B were perfect. We were very comfortable & enjoyed the siting room as well as the porch.

In our travels we generally stay at B&B's. Kennett House is an aesthetically pleasing, very well maintained, relaxing environment. The Hostess is very accommodating and cordial. The food, prepared by the hostess, is excellent.

Great location for this typical Pennsylvania stone house. Close to town. Easy to find. Rooms are not large. Bed was way too soft. Breakfast was very good. Everything fresh. Our host was cheerful and helpful.

Five Stars B&B!

In celebration of our 46th anniversary we had the privilege of staying at the Kennett House. We experienced incredible hospitality by Gilja from our arrival through our departure. She prepared a beautiful and most delicious breakfast. Our room was a peaceful retreat which had everything we needed. Did I mention "QUIET"? It was delightful. We took a late afternoon ride through Amish country and returned to enjoy the evening in rocking chairs on the front porch. Now we need to return to explore the town of Kennett Square....just steps away. Thank you, Gilja!
