Terrific Breakfast, and bed

4.6 on June 27, 2014

Stayed 2 nights, had 2 great breakfasts! Comfortable room and very convenient to downtown and Longwood Gardens, our destination.

I don't believe you could ask for anything better. Everything was superb.

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!

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

Very nice room and a good location. But the breakfast was nothing special, just eggs, a few pieces of bacon and one slice of toast.

A Lovely Stay in Kennett Square

4.6 on May 11, 2014

The Kennett Square B&B has all of the amenities for a relaxing stay. It is conveniently close to many nice restaurants in town, as well as Longwood Gardens and Winterthur. Gilja, our hostess, was very helpful and provided us with dscount tickets to Longwood Gardens, as well as delicious breakfasts. We stayed in the Brandywine Room-not our first choice but all of the other rooms were booked. It has private bath, but the bath is not connected to the bedroom. I was worried that might be inconvenient, but the bathroom was close enough to the bedreoom that it didn't bother us.

A wonderful place to stay!

The house is beautifully maintained, and Gilja is very hospitable - and a great cook!
