My fiancé and I had the opportunity to stay at the Kennett House Oct 24-26, and we were very pleased with the accommodations which were very quaint and more than adequate. The real treat was Gilja, the owner of the B&B. She maintains the rooms and home with meticulous cleanliness. Moreover, she has absolutely mastered the "breakfast" piece of "B&B". The meals we had the privilege of enjoying during our stay were extremely well orchestrated. Everything from the fruit salad to the mushroom omelet and French toast was created with a very clear focus on the finer details of meal preparation and timing, making breakfast an experience we eagerly anticipated. We enjoyed our stay in the Kennett area immensely and intend to return to Kennett House B&B with our families for a holiday season visit to the Garden. Highly recommended!

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.

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!

Great accommodations and wonderful proprietor. Weather was not good for us, but the host, facility, and location left nothing to be desired.
