The Kennett House Bed & Breakfast offers guests the casual elegance of a magnificent granite four square mansion in Kennett Square, PA. This Brandywine Valley bed & breakfast built in 1910 is nestled in the historic borough of Kennett Square, PA and features beautiful chestnut and rosewood woodwork, antique furnishings, and oriental rugs. The Kennett House is within walking distance of art galleries, specialty shops, and fine dining. It is minutes from all of the Brandywine Valley attractions and 3 miles from Longwood Gardens, the world's premier horticultural display garden.

Such a nice, historic inn. The owner is so thoughtful. She provides the rooms with many small amenities. We will always go back. She is also a good cook. She serves real maple syrup with her fantastic French toast.

A charming B&B was the ideal location for a few rainy days in the early spring. My partner and I love Kennett Brewing Company (amazing beer and food) so this little vacation allowed us to be in walking distance of our favorite place while also giving us the chance to explore other parts of the Mushroom Capital (we endorse visiting Philter and Lily Asian Cuisine). After a day of adventures, this B&B was the best place to come back to with its cozy atmosphere (always a must in my book), charming innkeeper, and delicious breakfast. Regardless of the time of year, it encapsulates all the warm and happy feelings one may associate with a magical holiday, such as Christmas. We would definitely love to return in the future and stay a little longer!

Breakfasts were artistically presented and delicious. Classical music enhanced the the morning dining experience. My husband and I have made Kennett House our home away from home, whenever we're in the area. The inn keeper now welcomes us as extended family.

Our host, Gilija, was outstanding! Friendly and what a fabulous chef. I had food limitations and she met those with ease preparing delicious alternatives. The oriental appointments throughout Kennett House are beautiful as are all the furnishings. The house is maintained with love and care -- as are the guests!

Very good overall. Bathroom could use some updating. Sink did not drain properly.

Great location but the service and atmosphere sold us. The place was spotless and the meals were outstanding. Our stay could not have been any better! Looking forward to a return trip in the spring.

We always have a restful and wonderfully quiet stay at Kennett House. Gilja manages it all so well and hospitably, with comfortable beds in spotless rooms, help with sightseeing, lovely decorating in tune with the impressive Arts and Crafts house, attention to temperature during the swing seasons, considerate touches like bottled water in the guests' common fridge and snacks for midnight munchies, and delicious breakfasts beautifully presented. Thank you again!

We enjoyed the architecture and décor and the wealth of information and books about the area. We were glad of good advice about places to eat and visit during our stay.

Our stay at the Kennett House was lovely. The host is absolutely delightful. She treated us like family. The breakfast each day was fantastic. We stayed in the Deleware room and it was cozy and we loved it! I would highly recommend a stay at the Kennett House! You won't regret it!
