I just came back from a visit to Longwood Gardens. I stayed at the Pennsbury Inn, which is about 4 miles away from Longwood. It is located in Chadds Ford on Baltimore Pike. Chip is a great host, and Cheryl, his wife does an amazing job with her garden. A mini Longwood! So many places to sit and relax and... More

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. Owners... More

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

This was our second time to stay at the Pennsbury Inn -this time with our 10 year old granddaughter. Our stay at the inn was like experiencing a living history lesson, and the expansive grounds and Tucker, the dog, were wonderful attractions for her. The location is perfect for visits to the many famous gardens and historical homes, antique shops... More

This was a lovely historic house that was very quaint...if you could see it. There was a stuffed animal or object in every corner and on top of every surface. Too much furniture to appreciate the lines of its own architecture. There was no visual freedom when you walked through. The kitchen was so cluttered, it was hard to see... More

From Cheryl: I wish I could please everyone but as tastes vary so much- it's impossible. Some, find my decor, warm, comfy and inviting and others messy and cluttered. There is an advantage in looking at our website pictures, before making a reservation, so that you know what the decor is like, My kitchen is very cluttered at this time... More

We stayed in the suite, addressed as the "Honeymoon Suite". Nice enough, rose petals on the bed and floor, chocolates. Special therapedic adjustable mattress didn't work, no a/c, just two windows would open in this top floor A-frame room, and we asked for extra soaps, etc. in the bathroom that we didn't receive. All for $230 a night...and then we... More

FROM Chip: I must have tried some humor that went awry and I’m sorry that I did not pick up on any feedback to tell me I was overstepping. I often play with guests and tell them that I can guess what their question is before they ask it. I went too far this time and I’m sorry I did.... More

Our recent stay has blown away all my original expectations of this establishment. Having stayed in the Pennsbury Inn made us feel truly priviledged. Everything from the exceptional service to the rustic atmosphere of the three-century old house with all its historic artifacts were an attraction in themselves, in my opinion. The room was cozy and the beds comfy. Fresh... More

Only able to spend one night, but wish we could have stayed longer. Innkeepers are friendly and very helpful. The home is cozy, comfortable, and filled with interesting things. Excellent breakfast, very personalized. Hope to return!

The Pennsbury Inn in the Brandywine Valley is a lovely historic inn built in the 1700's. The Innkeepers, Cheryl and Chip, are so sweet!
