Stayed only 1 night wish we had stayed a few more days. Lori was delightful, room was wonderful and breakfast scrumptious. Lori directed us to dinner in downtown West Chester which was very quaint with many shops and really nice restaurants. Bruce and Dora

Lovely facility. Gracious innkeeper. Convenient location. Breakfast generous and made with local meats and produce but not very creative. Have had better at other B&Bs.

Faunbrook was even more charming than the pictures on the web promised. I was so delighted to stay there. I wholeheartedly recommend.

My wife and I stayed at the Faunbrook B & B this past weekend and had a wonderful experience. The home was beautiful and the rooms were decorated to match the home. Our room had a claw foot tub. This is a major draw for my wife. We will be sure to stay there again when we go back to that area of PA. We have also decided to ensure that we stay in B & B's whenever we travel. The owners were wonderful to us. We enjoy reading the history of the home. That always adds to the experience. The morning meals were great as we'll. Dennis Mecum

This was our first B&B. What a beautiful old house, with updated, clean rooms and bathrooms.

We had a wonderful stay at the Faunbrook Bed & Breakfast. The rooms were lovely and the staff and owners were so nice and welcoming. We would surely come back again whenever we were in the area.

My fiance and I stayed at Faunbrook in May 2014. We had a lovely time. The grounds are beautiful. The restored historic house was elegant, clean, and comfortable. The B&B owner and staff were friendly and professional. The location is perfect; there is a beautiful and easy 5 - 10 minute walk into the center of town. We would definitely recommend this B&B.

I was in West Chester for a short conference, and was not interested in staying at the two hotels in town recommended by the conference, so I stayed at Faunbrook instead - what a great decision that was! My room (Isabel) was beautiful, and made me feel like a queen. It had a big, comfy canopy bed, lots of space and pretty details, and a wonderful, claw foot tub in the bathroom. There is a soap/bath products store in town - Silvanus - where I purchased some wonderful lavender bubble bath to use for my evening bubble bath. The breakfast was wonderful, too. The first morning, we had fabulous raspberry pancakes and a veggie frittata (I don't eat meat). The second morning, I they made me another kind of veggie frittata along with delicious scones. The coffee was great, too! The owner is very friendly, and the downstairs area inviting with lots of books, including a photo album with photos and articles about the Darlington family and past owners of Faunbrook - not to be missed! Faunbrook is also an easy walk into West Chester, so I walked back and forth to the conference one day as well. All, in all, a perfect stay at the Faunbook and visit to West Chester.

This is the second time my wife and I have stayed here. The quality, friendliness and value make this place great. We plan on coming back.
