Romantic and Relaxing

Another lovely, relaxing stay at Faunbrook! Lori, the innkeeper is so wonderful, and made us feel so at home. Even though Faunbrook is so close to the city of West Chester, we had a very quiet night of sleep, and the breakfast was delicious!


It is THE place to stay in West Chester

Faunbrook is not the least expensive place to stay in the area but it is the best value. This historic building is a treat inside and out, close to town, also 20 minutes to Longwood Gardens outside Kennett Square. Breakfasts are chummy, other guests we've encountered have all been hip to Faunbrook as THE place to stay in West Chester. Amiable, comfortable, well-appointed.


Valentine's Getaway

Our weekend away at Faunbrook Bed and Breakfast was wonderful and incredibly relaxing. The rooms are beautiful and very clean. The history of the house is preserved, but you have all the modern accommodations. The common areas each have a fireplace, and Lori and Steve provided us with wine, so that we could relax and enjoy sitting by the fire. Lori made an amazing brunch on Sunday morning. We would definitely go back! Thanks for a great weekend!


Great little find

We recently planned a staycation to Westchester and after many excellent reviews we settled on Faunbrook. We are so glad we did. The rooms are cozy with a fireplace and private bathroom. The breakfast is outstanding and very filling :) I would definitely recommend this bed and breakfast!

Un gran viaje al pasado! Excelente ambiente

Tuvimos una estadía muy agradable. Estar en Faunbrook fue como un viaje al pasado que nos ayudo a comprender la historia y el encanto de la zona. La habitacion nos resultó muy cómoda y encantadora la cama con dosel. Lo mismo el baño. Lo mejor, la hospitalidad de Laurie y el abundante desayuno, hecho y servido por ella. Pudimos tomarnos un buen vino tinto de su bar. Preciosa vista del otoño.


Not to be missed
