An amazing anniversary getaway!

5 on March 30, 2017

We had an absolutely wonderful time on our anniversary getaway! Our check-in was flawless, our room was beautiful (we stayed in the Elizabeth), brunch was delicious and we enjoyed the dinner recommendations and the history/photo albums in the living room. We loved everything to do in the surrounding area and would love to come back here for another weekend getaway. If I could live in the Faunbrook Bed and Breakfast I would!


Cozy and welcoming stay in West Chester, PA

4.8 on March 28, 2017

Upon arrival I was welcomed into the B&B and given a tour of the common areas. After my return from dinner with colleagues I enjoyed a glass of wine in front of the fire, while reading about the house's intriguing history. My room was cozy and warm on a chilly morning in March and I was treated to a delicious homemade breakfast frittata, fresh coffee, fruit salad, and banana-chocolate chip bread (wow!) - the fragrance of which wafted up the stairs as I awoke that morning. What a great stay, and for a sweet price! I travel for work quite frequently and this was by far one of the best accommodations I have experienced in awhile. Thank you to Lori and Steve and the rest of the staff (Glen and Tyler). I hope to return again soon.


Wonderful B&B

We stayed here for our anniversary as a mini-getaway. It was January and quite cold outside- but very comfortable inside! We had a fireplace in our room which was wonderful and kept our room quite warm. The bed was very comfortable. The staff was amazingly friendly. And the breakfast was absolutely delicious! We'll be back for sure!


Lovely last minute stay

We always choose a B&B whenever possible and Faunbrook truly did not disappoint. A couple of tiny things- I found the room uncomfortably cold and while we had a fireplace it was definitely only for ambiance. No privacy shades on the stunning bedroom windows allowed us to watch the sunrise but let in cold and, well, didn't provide privacy. Not deal breakers either one. Great location, beautiful antiques and decor, lovely host. Can accommodate a one-night weekend stay which is a must.


A Wonderful Christmas Eve/Day

My wife and I returned to the Faunbrook B&B for the second time. It was as wonderful as the first time. Decorated for Christmas and complete with complimentary Christmas cookies and wine, we woke up to Eggnog French Toast and a full meal. It was a wonderful time, and I recommend Faunbrook to anyone!


a relaxing stay

We came for an overnight stay after visiting Longwood Gardens. Fanubrooks decorations were lovely, we felt like we were traveling back in time. Hope to visit again


Faunbrook Christmas Getaway

4.6 on December 26, 2016

The house was decorated beautifully for Christmas. When we arrived we received a tour of the house and got a seat by the fireplace with some complimentary wine. All the rooms and bathrooms were very clean. Breakfast the next morning was amazing and adjustments were made for guests with dietary restrictions...would love to come back next Christmas!


A PERFECT GETAWAY

AMAZING

I had my bridal party book rooms at Faunbrook B&B and am SO happy I did. From the time I booked until we left the Inn, Lori was so helpful and attentive. I wanted to use the common areas of the Inn to have my bridesmaids and I get ready in and Lori made sure everything I needed was handled. She worked around our schedule for changing the rooms over, and the breakfast she served was PHENOMENAL and there was sooo much of it- everyone talked about how delicious it was for days. I can't thank Lori and the staff at Faunbrook enough for all of their help, they truly made the weekend so enjoyable!
