“Lovely B & B in Kennett Square”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 May 2010

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Kennett House. Gilja, the innkeeper, was a very gracious host. The breakfasts were amazing. Just enough food. The house was immaculate and the room cozy and inviting. The Kennett Square historic district is just one third mile away. Beautiful shops and boutiques. Don't miss the Farmer's Market on Fridays. Everyone was very friendly. Kennett House is just minutes from Longwood Gardens. We stayed in the Wyeth Room which has a private bath. Lovely porch to sit on a rocking chair and just relax. We'll be back.

This well-maintained B&B is conveniently located near Brandywine Valley attractions (Longwood Gardens, Brandywine River Museum). Our hostess Gilja was cheerful, eager to please, and served a lovely breakfast. Pay attention, however if you are booking a room with a private, but "adjacent" bathroom. That means the bathroom is yours only, but you walk out into the hall to get to it. Gilja provides robes in the closet to make that easier. But if you were planning on stumbling to the bathroom in your underwear, think again. Gilja provides good restaurant recommendations. We had a great dinner at Catherine's. Sound from the street and other guests was noticeable, but not enough for us to turn on the provided white noise machine. The entrance is actually on N. Garfield street, so don't be alarmed if your GPS directs you to a barren rock wall on State Street.

My husband and I were very pleased with our stay at Kennett House Inn B & B in Kennett Square, Pa. Our room had lots of thoughtful extras: robes, high quality linens, well-placed lamps, and it was spotless. The host Gilja took great pride in her breakfast, as well she should. Good food, perfectly served. Comfortable and friendly.

Gilja does a fantastic job of maintaining this grand old Arts and Crafts style home and of taking care of her guests. We thought the breakfasts were great---I can't imagine needing more or better, and she was a lovely host. My husband and I like B&B's and would highly recommend this one to fellow travelers. It is a great place from which to explore the beautiful Brandywine Valley (highly recommend Longwood and the Brandywine Museum---we enjoyed both shuttle tours out of Brandywine...fantastic tour guides)

Not a fan of B&Bs but none the less have stayed in many throughout the U.S & Europe. The Kennett House is spectacular--- more like a boutique inn with its quality ammenities & tasteful decor. No detail is overlooked. The breakfasts are gourmet made with the freshest ingredients. Gilja is a hostess par excellence. We stayed in the Delaware Room, very private, very quiet. The Kennett House location is perfect. We walked to the Kennet Inn(just a restaurant-no rooms despite the name) & enjoyed lovely dinners outside on 2 consecutive evenings. A very short drive & we were at The Hagley, Winterthur, Longwood Gardens, Brandywine Museum, & wine tasdting at the winery. Leaving the Kennett House was painful after our luxurious stay. Gilja felt like a dear, dear friend.
