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.

The Kennet House was a terrific bed and breakfast. Walking distance to town, outstanding breakfasts and Gilja couldn't be a nicer host. If we come back in the Spring, we will be sure to book again.

Reserved the Brandywine Room for New Year's Eve into New Years Day. Everything, from the service to the room itself, was great! The bed was especially comfortable and the heated bathroom floor was a nice touch. I would definitely recommend this bed and breakfast to others!

We recently stayed at this Inn. The house is attractive and the owner is thoughtful. She makes a nice breakfast and that morning experience was quite pleasant. There was plenty of hot water. The negative was the mattress in our room was a bit soft for my taste as I prefer a firmer one. The other negative was that there was a funky smell in my room like heavy dust or mildew. I woke with puffy eyes. We had to keep the windows open after that. Note that sometimes you can smell the mushroom operations in Kennett Square. That is not what was bugging my eyes. I'm a stickler from clean places and this one seemed clean. I didn't find hairs in the shower or anything like that.

With warm greetings and customized breakfasts, my husband and I enjoyed a lovely four-day stay over the Christmas holiday. We look forward to return visits in the future. The Lees

We had a wonderful overnight stay at the Kennett House. Beds, linens, amenities were luxurious. Gilja is very hospitable. The only negative was the sausage accompanying French toast when we had specified "Heart Healthy" under dietary restrictions. However, the first course of artfully presented fresh fruit was outstanding. Overall, a great place; would definitely return if in the area. Recommend "The Longwood Suite".

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!

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.
