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!

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.

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!

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

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!

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!

Stayed for a wedding and we had almost the entire B&B booked. I was lucky and got to see many of the rooms, all of which are gorgeous! The owner was wonderful and made delicious breakfasts for us both mornings we were there. The greatest of which was the pumpkin pancakes! I live nearby but I would definitely stay again just for a weekend getaway sometime! Highly recommended!

Seven years ago we chose Faunbrook as the site of our wedding and dinner reception. We visited a dozen possible venues in PA and DE, and when we had seen them all we looked at each other and said, "There are many good choices, but only one perfect choice." And that was Faunbrook. We returned this year to celebrate our 7th anniversary and in every corner of this evocative 19th century property wonderful memories of romance and family flooded over us. Whether you are seeking a weekend getaway or a wedding site that everyone in your party will love, our experience is that Lori and her assistant innkeepers will make certain everything is perfect.
