We enjoyed our stay at Folke Stone. Marcy and Walter were very helpful with ideas and suggestions about what to do in the area. The breakfasts were outstanding! We highly recommend this B and B to everyone.

In this fast paced world we live in, it's nice to find a place you can call home when traveling. This for us is 1732 Folke Stone Bed and Breakfast. Found in charming West Chester Pa and very close to Longwood Gardens and the various DuPont estates, and Brandywine Valley attractions, this B&B is just above all the rest in value and service. Overseen by it's hosts, Marcy and Walter Schmoll, the B&B is packed with it's own history. An informative history of Folke Stone comes with your stay. The hosts make it a special place to relax. The rooms though small, are comfortable and clean. The bathrooms are across the hall from your room, but robes are provided. If you are booking the Jenny Lind room, just know that it's bath is very small. The breakfasts are so special here. Marcy makes each one deliciously different with healthy ingredients that fill you right up. Walter will light a lovely fire in the diningroom fireplace each morning for your enjoyment and warmth in the winter. We have come back to Folke Stone again and again and have had a wonderful visit each time. We concider Marcy and Walter our dear friends and Folke Stone our home away from home.

We recently visited West Chester, PA for our sons family weekend at WCU and stayed at this wonderfully cozy bed and breakfast. What a gem! The rooms were lovely and clean, the location was just about six minutes from the hub of West Chester and the hosts, Marcy & Walter, were so welcoming. They provided us with delicious breakfasts' consisting of homemade breads, fresh fruit and egg stratas with sausage and pancakes. They joined us at the table each morning and spent time telling us about the area and its history and answering any questions we had. They were so warm and friendly. During my sons next four year stay at the University, we will have many opportunities to visit and I know we will be staying at the Folke Stone B&B for those visits. The beautiful rooms, wonderful food and gracious hospitality is a winner! Don't miss this place!

What a wonderful place to spend a few days.This 18th century home delights the senses with Marcy and Walt's wonderful hospitality, delicious breakfasts and interesting fellow travelers. It was easy to visit two of our favorite sites: Longwood Gardens and The Brandywine River Museum. We will surely return soon.

We picked Folke Stone for its convenient location and received so much more. Walter met us and took good care of us until Marcy arrived. The rooms were great and the private bath across the hall was spotless. What breakfasts!! Marcy is a gourmet cook. The house itself is historic and we took wonderful walks in this beautiful neighborhood that has a rural feel to it but is close to everything. A great choice on our part.
