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.

Amazing weekend getaway

The house was historic and absolutely gorgeous. The owner, Lori, keeps the place in great shape and was a wonderful host. The breakfast was wonderful as well, the highlight being a peach pancake. Can't wait to return.

We spent 2 days at Faunbrook. It was a great location for touring the DuPont properties, Winterthur and The Hagley Museum. The house is lovely, beautifully furnished with antiques. Breakfasts were awesome and we pretty much had the run of the place as it was early in the week and no other guests were present. The room we had chosen was a little small. We could have used a 2nd comfortable chair. Wi-Fi was provided, however finding outlets for electronic devices in need of recharging was a challenge. I suppose this made me aware of the dusty corners and baseboards in the room. Overall a nice stay, only next time , one of the larger rooms would be preferable. Host and helpers were very gracious and friendly.


Great bed and breakfast!

My husband and I stayed over a long holiday weekend. The room was beautiful, (Darlington) and the food was excellent! Ask for the creme brûlée French toast! It seems like a great place to host a party or small wedding, as there were a few celebrations going on during our stay. The owner is lovely and welcoming!


Excellent

The inn is in a residential neighborhood, but is quiet and beautifully landscaped. Lovely outdoor seating in wraparound porch. The breakfast was delicious and very filling. The innkeeper was very friendly and very accommodating. Plan to return soon!
