We really enjoyed our two nights at Pennsbury Inn. They were very accommodating to our party of six and fed us delicious breakfasts. We were there during winter, but the grounds look to be beautiful in the warmer months. During the winter, though, you can enjoy sitting by the fire of the kitchen hearth. The Inn is lovely and historic,... More

Julie, we are so glad that we have five parlors so that a group like yours can take over one of them and not feel like they're putting any other guests out. You definitely should have another reunion, here, sometime between April and September, when my 4 acres of gardens are in full bloom. By the way, it's easy to... More

First time staying at a B&B. Hesitant when we first entered, very nice welcome reception from Cheryl who showed us room and amenities which never stopped coming. Room was warm,cozy and very clean. Breakfast served by Chip prepared by Cheryl was delicious with a variety each day. Tucker added to the warmth of this very enjoyable stay. Highly recommend

Tucker, our friendly Havanese, is a feature in many our reviews. He loves everyone and guests respond to that happily. I'm so happy that you were pleased with your first B&B visit and wish you many more. We hope you'll visit here again as well, as every season, brings new treasures to investigate. More

The Pennsbury Inn - Every comfortably-furnished room is extensively decorated for Christmas by the innkeepers, Chip & Cheryl, reflecting their love of the Season. Great attention to the smallest of details (bedtime treats, cozy bathrobes, morning newspapers, canine concierge Tucker's warm greetings); the friendly homey surroundings; local tips/suggestions by the amiable innkeepers; and the delicious homemade breakfasts all made our...

We were upgraded to the Winterthur room w/ the beautiful Palladian window overlooking the lovely garden. Unfortunately, it was raining, so we didn't explore the outside, but everything was very comfortable. Cheryl brought us delicious homemade cookies in the evening. I turned the electric fire on in the morning to dress by--very cozy. Nice breakfast, including cappuccino, if requested. Good... More

I'm so glad that you were pleased with your upgrade to the Winterthur Suite, nicknamed by many as the "ooo/ahhhh" suite. I'm sure that you can imagine what a spectacular view that window affords, on a sunny or even snowy day. I'm sure you understand that your next visit will need to be longer, with so many activities and attractions... More

Chip and Cheryl were wonderful hosts to our wedding. We booked the entire inn for the weekend as I had many bridal party guests coming from out of town. Our family loved all the rooms and found them quite comfortable. The inn and grounds are highly memorable. Chip and Cheryl met with me multiple times at varying stages of wedding... More

It was a true delight, sharing Annie & Jarred's wedding day. It was so beautifully planned and having the bride and groom's friends and family here for the weekend, allowed a good deal of relaxing and fun. We're so glad that they found our "gem" and that they remember to return for those all-important, anniversary celebrations. More

The inn is well-maintained and clean, owners helpful with tips on dining. However, when we arrived one a half hour ahead of time and instead of a friendly greeting welcoming us to their BandB, got a talking to from Cherl about how "you know checkin time isn't until 3" and she was not dressed to receive us, and we caught...

Here is my ‘Beware!’ note. I contacted this place to reserve a 2-3-night stay in September 2015. When asked about a senior discount, a manager/owner said he would be able to provide a discount but would contact us the next day with the exact rate. I advanced my cc information and gave him my e-mail and cell phone number. I... More

Upon taking his reservation Chip explained that he would email a confirmation of his 3-night reservation.

Friend and I headed to beautiful Pennsylvania for her birthday and garden hopping. Loved Longwood Garden and terrific Brandywine Museum. Not so much Pennsbury Inn. Felt like it needed some serious updating. Nice garden, average breakfast. Could have used a bit more air conditioning in our room and the location on a busy street might affect some folks sleep.

I so wish that Lynn had shared some insight on how to update a c.1714 inn without destroying its history, because I feel that we have to be very cautious in that regard. Part of its history is the location on the "road to Baltimore:, which has always been a busy road, hence the many buffers and the "sound" machine... More
