Faunbrook Bed and Breakfast

3.8 on June 03, 2015

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!


Beautiful Place and Excellent Respite

4.6 on May 13, 2015

Faunbrook is a picture perfect Victorian home nestled just down the road from the bustle of downtown West Chester. The place is beautifully preserved and offers a place of true relaxation and respite. Lori is the innkeeper and she serves up absolutely delicious breakfast spreads that have been carefully crafted and thought out. From breakfast I could retire back to Edith's Room, which feels like home except that it has an exquisite bathroom behind French doors that I could only dream of having in my own house. The luxurious tub is fit for a queen and boy did I feel like one here. I also had a brunch here the morning after my wedding and it was just wonderful. I couldn't have imagined a better place to have it and my guests agreed. Simply perfect. I would heartily recommend Faunbrook to anyone looking for a quiet, beautiful refuge from the hectic day to day we all know so well. It really is worth every penny.


Beautiful historic house with wonderful service

We stayed when a film we were working on rented the entire establishment for a night shoot. The location is AMAZING, the inn is full of historic charm, modern amenities and the nicest owner ever. My husband and I are already coming up with reasons to return. The food was delicious, we had both dinner and breakfast, and it was tastiest hotel I've eaten at in years. I can't wait to go back. We stayed in the Isabel room and it's my first choice for our next trip. I loved the canopy bed, the claw foot bath tub and the corner view. Can't wait to come again!


Another lovely stay at Faunbrook B&B

5 on April 27, 2015

My daughter attends school in West Chester, so when I visit her for Parents' Day or other occasions, I stay at Faunbrook B&B. Last week was my 4th or 5th stay, and it included all the features that keep me coming back: a gorgeous home, a gorgeous room with all the appointments I need, and a really delicious vegetarian breakfast. The process of booking a room online, and paying, are straightforward and streamlined. What a haven, after a day of traveling, to stay here.
