Deservedly the Tripadvisor Number 1 B&B in Kennett Square. Gilja is a fantastic host and prepares breakfast treats to die for. The house and its rooms are generously proportioned. We chose the Delaware Room that faces to the rear as I was uncertain about traffic noise at the front: but, having visited, I am sure that this can be discounted... More

The house is a beautiful mansion from the turn of the century with period furnishings. The woodwork is gorgeous. The owner is gracious and a wonderful cook, charming and helpful. I recommend highly. Can walk to Kennett restaurants.

The accommodations are in beautiful Kennett Square and B&B is within walking distance to the charming down town. The host was welcoming and very helpful with any queries. The rooms/ suites are beautifully appointed (THE HOUSE ITSELF IS A LANDMARK) and the gardens and wrap around porch allow you to linger outside, Breakfast was excellent. Book early because it is...

From the comfort of the bed, amenities in the room, breakfast, and hospitality of Gilja, you'll never find another like it! We were not able to eat in the town due to a celebration, but the area is quiet and peaceful for walking around the house and has quite a few local establishments in the downtown area. Discounted tickets for... More

The Kennett House is serene, and walkable, through the square. The home is beautiful and Gilja is an amazing host. I stayed for five days during Christmas. The Deleware room was charming and cozy. Breakfast was bountiful with mushroom omelettes, french toast and fresh fruit. I would like to return in the summer and enjoy the wrap around porch. I... More
