Christmas visit

5 on January 12, 2018

Faunbrook B&B host Lori is delightful, thoughtful, and clearly passionate about her work. We loved staying for several nights at Christmastime. We lit the fireplace in our room Christmas morning to exchange gifts before heading to a family gathering, and Lori's fabulous decorating throughout the mansion and her scrumptious breakfasts made the holidays extra special for us this year. We're already planning our return for Christmas 2018.


Love this B&B

5 on January 04, 2018

This was our second year staying at this B&B. The 1st of the year is our anniversary and we like going to Longwood Gardens to see the Christmas set up so with this B&B being close by it’s perfect. Lori and her staff are great. She makes us feel at home. Breakfast is the bomb. Oh and them preparing some of it the night before smells amazing. It make me want to leave my room and raid the kitchen. All in all great place.


Adore the Faunbrook

5 on December 08, 2017

I'm a repeat stayer. Love the Faunbrook. Keeper Lori is wonderful. We've stayed here about 6 times. There are B&B's closer to my relatives , but this one is the best so we stay here. You wont be disappointed. Rooms are beautiful. Breakfast is wonderful . Wine is left out for guest as well. The house has so much history and is kept up with really impeccably. Love it .


Lovely, lovely place.

The hospitality was wonderful and they accommodated my need for an early check-in. The breakfast was superb, the coffee strong, and the room was perfect. Period furnishings, a super comfortable (and warm!) bed ... I was 100% happy with Faunbrook, and would return in a heartbeat!


Excellent Getaway Spot!

Delicious pumpkin pancakes, beautiful house and rooms, the tub and features in the Edith room were perfect! Thank you for making my Grandma's 88th birthday a special experience!


Cozy & Private B&B

4.8 on October 10, 2017

My boyfriend and I stayed at Faunbrook for just one night while visiting the east coast. I wanted a night out of the city and a place we could recover from a long day of plane travel. Everyone at Faunbrook was extremely hospitable, the B&B is charming as can be, and the rooms were beautiful. They even made a gluten-free version of breakfast (bananas foster) to accommodate our unique eating habits. Will definitely be coming back!


Charming room and beautiful bathroom

5 on October 06, 2017

Faunbrook is a lovely old house in a pretty setting. I especially loved the large bright bathroom with soaking tub and separate shower.


Second stay and looking forward to a third

4.6 on September 04, 2017

Stayed here twice on a last-minute whim and will be back. Priced just right and charmingly historic. This is not a snobby place with a ton of bells and whistles which suits us nicely. Very old home so no central a/c or heat. Would like to see some small details such as lotions, soaps and toiletries rather than what seems like leftovers. But truly a small issue for a great location, great hospitality and excellent breakfast.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for staying again at Faunbrook B&B! Just to clarify on a couple of your comments, there is central a/c in the guest rooms and central heat throughout the inn. The a/c is housed in a unit on the roof which is then pumped through feeds in the ceiling. This may be why you did not notice it. The heat and a/c are managed by innkeeper from two separate units in the inn. As for toiletries, in order to maintain our eco-friendly environment, we keep one large bath wash, shampoo and conditioner in each shower to avoid waste from many unused or partially used mini plastic containers. These are Arbonne products which are botanical products. Each room also has hand wash by the sink and a bar soap. We are happy to accommodate if you prefer brand new products in the rooms, and/or need to adjust room temperatures. We're glad you enjoyed your stay and hope to see you again!

Wonderful stay! Perfectly appointed room and most delicious breakfast

5 on July 27, 2017

I have stayed here twice before for work and each time is better than the last. The ambiance is perfect: quiet and peaceful but not too stuffy. The hosts are gracious and easy-going and everyone who works here is very friendly and helpful. The breakfast is always a highlight, as well as the complimentary wine! I can't say enough about this perfect gem in West Chester, PA. I hope to stay there again. Thanks for Lori, Steve, and the whole crew.


Great anniversary get-away!

4.8 on July 12, 2017

We loved our 2-day stay at Faunbrook for our wedding anniversary. The room was the bridal suite...deep soaking tub and separate shower! The meals were delicious...all farm-to-table ingredients. It was nicely located not far from Longwood Gardens where we listened to a concert and saw the dancing giant fountains.
