My wife and I have stayed here twice, in April 2012 and again in April 2013. We prefer B & B's when we travel and have stayed in many across the U.S. This B & B is one of the nicest! Not only are the rooms immaculately cared for, with many special touches you don't usually find at a B... More

This was our 3rd stay at Kennett House. Each time, there was a new owner. The high standard of a warm welcome, comfortable room, made-to-order breakfast, and attention to detail is still being maintained.

Our stay at the Kennett House B&B was the perfect way to celebrate my 50th birthday. Gilja is a wonderful innkeeper and we love her laugh! We booked the Longwood Suite. It's a beautiful room and the bed is like sleeping on a cloud-so comfy! The location is ideal for seeing the local attractions. Gilja makes a killer mushroom omelet... More

We had a wonderful getaway to the Kennett House Bed & Breakfast. The house is beautiful and so peaceful and quiet. Our room was the Brandywine which had a really comfortable bed. The private bathroom that is adjacent to the room had all the amenities you could wish for, including a nice big bathtub for a relaxing soak. Gilja is... More

What a beautiful stay. Spent my 50th birthday with the most charming, calming, lovely lady who made a killer breakfast. She does everything right. Her home becomes yours and is absolutely magnificent and impeccably spotless. The bed was the best!

Pros: Good location for sightseeing in the Brandywine Valley Good breakfast,hostess goes out of her way to satisfy your tastes. Cons: Beware: the Brandywine bedroom does not have direct access to its own bathroom which is"adjacent"meaning you have to go out in the hall to get there. At $160 a night(2nights minimum) this in my view is unacceptable. Since the... More

The beautifully-cared for 1912 home is an excellent choice for visiting the Brandywine Valley. A few blocks from Kennett Square's town center it offers easy access to the town's shops and restaurants and, more importantly, to the area's fabulous sites, Longwood Garden, Hagley and Winterthur to name just a few of interesting, and beautiful, places in the area. The Delaware... More

Beautiful house in walking distance from centre of town. The downstairs area has lovely reception rooms available to guests and all are framed in warm chestnut (floors, doors, windows etc) from when the house was built over 100 years ago. The upstairs had a small sitting area with fridge (comp drinks) and great books on Winterthur and the Wyeths (Brandywine).... More

This historic house is beautifully restored and full of period furnishings. The Longwood Suite was incredibly comfortable - lots of pillows, a separate sitting room with sofa, soft chairs in the bedroom, bathrobes, nicely stocked bathroom. Gilja, the innkeeper, is a sweet, highly intelligent person who warmly greets you and makes you feel at home. She cooks a wonderful breakfast!

Lovely, perfectly located stone house full of beautiful oak woodwork with a nice shady wrap around porch. Gilja, the inkeeper, is very thoughtful and warm, the breakfast was delicious and our room was both immaculate and tastefully decorated. The house is set back from the street behind a screen of large trees so there is no noise even in the... More
