Lovely Chester County historic BB

4.4 on April 16, 2018

This is a lovely B&B tucked away in beautiful chester county. The rooms were clean and neat and the beds were comfortable. If you can arrange to meet Up with Inn Keeper, do ask him about the renovation of this historic school - wonderful story!. Highly recommend.

Not Impressed

1.8 on May 17, 2017

We were not impressed by our stay at the Buck School Inn. Our bathroom was a bit dirty and the room was not as described. It was much closer to the rest of the rooms than it sounded in the description and the tub in the bathroom was not as described (even though that was a big reason we chose this inn). However, the host was very nice and accommodating.
