We had a pleasant stay at the Kennett House. I booked the Brandywine room without realizing that its private bath is in the hallway. It was fine because robes were supplied by Gilja, Very convenient to everything and walking distance to town.

My husband & I arrived at Kennett Square after travelling from Brussels where my husband had had his wallet stolen, which included his drivers license. Gilja was wonderful, couldn't have been more helpful & insisted on being our chauffer until a replacement license was received. Gilja is like a friend & treats everyone as an honoured guest.

She is the ultimate B&B owner. Lovely rooms, spotless, large front porch. Breakfast was a delight each morning. The fresh fruit was beautifully presented and she gave... More
