My mother and I had a lovely stay at the Pennsbury Inn in July. Cheryl and Chip were extremely helpful and went out of their way to provide me with a breakfast that met my dietary needs. The room was very comfortable, and they appeared to have anticipated every need. And the gardens were particularly lovely. I was initially concerned... More

From the moment I researched this place, as we were visiting the Longwood Gardens, Chip and Cheryl, the Innkeepers, could not have been nicer. We had a stunning, super comfortable, totally filled with whatever you could need..room! Coffee is served in the afternoon, goodies to eat, espresso for breakfast, gorgeous grounds filled with many stunning artifacts. And, Tucker, the sweetest... More

We had a delightful stay at the Pennsbury Inn and Gardens recently when visiting friends in Chadds Ford, Kennett Square and Wilmington. Innkeepers and owners, Cheryl and Chip, greeted us warmly and responded to our every request. While Chip has taken over breakfast duties, Cheryl is still up late to ensure a fresh baked treat is waiting in your room... More

We stayed at the inn while visiting Winterthur and the Brandywine Valley Museum. It was a great location for all the attractions in the area. Chip and Cheryl were wonderful hosts - telling us all about the history of the inn and giving us great directions to all the attractions. Breakfast was wonderful with special touches. Snacks were always available... More

The mornings started with an early walk in the garden. accompanied by Tucker. I even got a glimpse of the resident fox. Breakfast met our needs - the "foodie" in our group was satisfied, and the least adventuresome was not out of her comfort zone. Before dinner, we worked on hand projects in the garden while sipping wine. After dinner,... More

What could be better than a review that ends with a promise to return? Looking forward to having all of you again and Tucker is as well, of course. Thank you for the offer to accompany you on your next trip. However I think my Pennsbury Inn guests would miss me a bit, don't you? More

Pennsbury Inn is an old house that has had several additions, so it has a number of sitting areas and 3 staircases to get you up to the bedrooms. Our room faced the garden in the back, but to reach it you had to climb a narrow spiral-type staircase, using the hand rails for balance. This made it difficult to... More

Thank you for appreciating my gardens. Indeed the cicadas, frogs and other neighbors can be noisy, which is why we provide ear plugs, fans and sound machines, for anyone that needs them. I'm sorry that you did not take advantage of that service. More

Everything was fine here. The inn and the room were as pictured and everything was clean. Breakfast was a great start to the day. Chip was dealing with a medical issue, but didn't let it interfere with being a wonderful host. Very knowledgeable and helpful. Their little dog, Tucker, is adorable and very well behaved. Perfect location for the sights... More

The Pennsbury Inn has some challenges. While we were there, one of the innkeepers was suffering from a physical issue, that impacted his mobility. Never the less, there were some things that were just not up to expectations for the price. Hopefully, as the innkeeper feels better, the inn will be able to improve. The breakfast was not well prepared.... More

The Pennsbury Inn is an intimate, cozy and historic inn. Enjoy the wide plank floors and multiple fireplaces in the various public rooms - each with its own personality.

How sweet of you to take the time to write a review. As you've pointed out so nicely, we do not just provide a comfortable bed and yummy breakfast, but want to also make sure that our guests take full advantage and enjoy all that the Brandywine Valley has to offer, as comfortably, economically and efficiently, as possible.

My husband and I spent two nights at the Pennsbury Inn. The oldest part was built in 1714, and it is very nicely appointed in keeping with its history. The grounds were a wonderful surprise; although it's on a main road and very convenient to local attractions (Winterthur, Brandywine River Art Museum, Longwood Gardens), there are 4 or so acres...

How nice to have someone point out those little extras, that if you need them make your stay so much more pleasant. I also appreciate hearing about anything else that will make the Pennsbbury Inn your favorite, hideaway. More
