Innkeeper Gilja Kusano owns and operates a beautiful historic B&B within easy walking distance of the town center. The home is beautiful inside and out. The woodwork is exquisite. The furniture and decor complement the home. We stayed in the Longwood Suite for four days. That offers a bedroom, separate sitting room and ensuite bathroom. The king size bed has... More

Deservedly the Tripadvisor Number 1 B&B in Kennett Square. Gilja is a fantastic host and prepares breakfast treats to die for. The house and its rooms are generously proportioned. We chose the Delaware Room that faces to the rear as I was uncertain about traffic noise at the front: but, having visited, I am sure that this can be discounted... More

The house is a beautiful mansion from the turn of the century with period furnishings. The woodwork is gorgeous. The owner is gracious and a wonderful cook, charming and helpful. I recommend highly. Can walk to Kennett restaurants.

The Inn had a lovely porch with chairs for sitting outside in the nice weather months and two different sitting areas within the... More

The accommodations are in beautiful Kennett Square and B&B is within walking distance to the charming down town. The host was welcoming and very helpful with any queries. The rooms/ suites are beautifully appointed (THE HOUSE ITSELF IS A LANDMARK) and the gardens and wrap around porch allow you to linger outside, Breakfast was excellent. Book early because it is...

My sisters and I spent a delightful week-end at Kennett House. Gilja was the perfect host. Helpful and attentive. The breakfasts were wonderful and we all hated to leave! We would definitely stay here again and enjoy all the area has to offer.

From the comfort of the bed, amenities in the room, breakfast, and hospitality of Gilja, you'll never find another like it! We were not able to eat in the town due to a celebration, but the area is quiet and peaceful for walking around the house and has quite a few local establishments in the downtown area. Discounted tickets for... More
