No doubt it’s cute in a 1950s, Beaver Cleaver sort of way. But let’s be real, this place needs gutted and, even then, is not for business travelers or those who might arrive without a car (e.g. Uber).

Let’s start with the basics: lug your luggage up to the second floor to check in (nice front desk people) and then you are directed to what could be a several hundred yards to your building, which contains your suite. A courtesy shuttle would be nice, especially in the cold or inclement weather. And, that distance to the main building and absence of nearby dining alternatives, leaves room service as the only real option. Inside the room, welcome to your grandma’s house, with old plaid couches, floral print drapes, an old Black & Decker microwave, TV trays (remember those?) and the cutest little TVs that were too old and too small 15+ years ago. The cheap cable package means a poor picture quality at any rate. Don’t expect to be blown away by the free Internet (I’d pay for fast internet). Bottom line is that this is anything but ideal for business travelers and best when visited only during “good” weather.

Loved this Inn. Friendly staff; historic architecture; clever art; wide variety of rooms; fireplaces; towel heaters; stocked mini-fridge (non-alcoholic beverages).

Wonderful food service at the Krazy Kat restaurant. Dinner and brunch (weekends). Good wine list. Imaginative chefs.

We have stayed at the Inn at Montchanin Village several times over the past few years and it is always a welcoming experience. The staff is knowledgeable and helpful. Our room was perfect with wonderful amenities. The location is excellant for visiting Longwood Gardens, Winterthur, Nemours, The Brandywine Museum and more. We always enjoy our meals at Krazy Kat’s restaurant and the breakfast is fabulous. We look forward to returning again and again.

Its not your boutique hotel experience as this is a historic inn and a step back into time . . . so takes what comes with that statement. I am usually a fan of artsy boutique hotels, but could not resist the temptation to stay somewhere historic that is deeply rooted into the history of the Du Pont family and the Winterthur Estate.

It was a dreary rainy day on our arrival, but we were greeted with pleasantries, hot coffee and pounds of chocolate, literally it sits on a big scale, in the lobby of the main house. Early upon arrival, our room was not ready, so we indulged in a game of cards in the reception hall whilst we waited. Although grand and inviting, the room could use some updating to add warmth and comfort. No music made for a very uncomfortable environment, so we asked the attendant at the reception desk if they could turn on some music. She stated that although they did not have a sound system, she could turn on the self played piano. I was perplexed, because they had speakers attached to the walls, but she said they were for events and she did not have access to them - so piano music was the only option. After a round of cards, our rooms became available at the allotted time 3p.m. and we were checked in promptly. Since it was raining, the attendant offered to escort us by cart to our bungalow so that we did not get soaked from car to room; I found this very gracious and hospitable of them. The Rooms - keeping in mind that this is an Inn and not modern hotel - the rooms were VERY large, comfortable and clean. Since it was raining, we opened the windows to hear the drops hit the garden outside our window. I do wish however that we would have been offered a room with a porch or somewhere to sit and watch the rain shower as it delayed our visit to Longwood Garden, so we might as well relaxed and enjoyed its tranquility. Our room was equipped with a mini-fridge, microwave, table utensils and other equipment one might need to feed a family or extended stay. The bathroom was very spacious, nicely decorated and added touch of fresh flowers. The Restaurant - KRAZY KATS is AMAZING. We only had breakfast there upon our departure, but the food was Krazy good and made me wish we had dined there for dinner. All in all, we had a lovely stay. My only feedback to management would be to look at their main reception area with a fine eye. The look is not quite historic, but not modern either - its a bit in limbo. Either go all the way historic and pay respect to the heritage of the Inn or go more cozy comfortable with a cohesive lodge aesthetic. Either way, definitely invest in an sound system to pipe in soothing music to greet guests and make for a more inviting atmosphere to hang out and play some games.

My husband and I stayed during an anniversary getaway. Looked the historic and history to this place. It is beautiful and staff so friendly. We stayed in the Colonel, a deluxe King room. We looked the private little porch with 2 rockers and enjoyed part of the afternoon here. The room was very clean with a kitchenette, sitting area, fireplace and bed on the opposite side. The bathroom was beautiful with a soaking tub and separate walk in shower. Our one call to room service for ice for answered within minutes. Location is close to so many places.

I don't think so, but many cottages have 2 rooms inside, maybe one on first floor and one on second, each with their own bath,, so that might work for you. Best to call and discuss this with the Inn.
