My husband and I took a trip to Longwood Gardens. Based on recommendations, we booked a room at the Kennent House Bed and Breakfast. We were delighted to be greeted with a warm, friendly welcome from the proprietor, Gilja. We stayed in the Delaware room which boasted a new bathroom. The room was spotless! The updated facilities added to 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...

We stayed in the Longwood Suite for 2 nights while visiting Longwood Gardens.. From our arrival to departure, our stay was fantastic.. while, checking in, Gilja gave us many sightseeing and dining ideas.. She even had discount non-timed tickets to Longwood Gardens and discount tickets to the Brandywine River Museum. We were able to walk the few blocks into Kennett... More

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

The Kennett House is serene, and walkable, through the square. The home is beautiful and Gilja is an amazing host. I stayed for five days during Christmas. The Deleware room was charming and cozy. Breakfast was bountiful with mushroom omelettes, french toast and fresh fruit. I would like to return in the summer and enjoy the wrap around porch. I... More

This is a very nice BnB in a neat little town that we visited after touring Winterthur. We stayed in the large Longwood Suite. Very good king bed with a cute, but small bathroom. I suspect the size of the bathroom was dictated by the conversion to a BnB from an early 1900s home. Of course, there are lots of... More

We stayed there two nights in October--terrific location, just 2-3 blocks from Kennett Square, PA, which a story in itself. Kennett House B&B is a well constructed "fortress", a model of early 1900 built-to-last construction. We stayed in the Delaware Room, which had its own sitting room, very roomy, yet cozy and comfortable. Gilja, the owner, is very warm, welcoming,... More

This lovely restored property is a short walk to the town center and very close to Longwood Gardens, just up the main road. Gilja is a wonderful hostess and prepared delicious French toast and mushroom omelets. The room was cozy and quiet and with room to put our "stuff" without compromising charm. Highly recommend!

Gilja is the most welcoming owner! She greets you warmly and treats you as family. The rooms are spacious and priced well for the area. You can walk to several nearby restaurants and shops. Great stay for the Kennett Brew Fest (October 11). You can walk to the Brew Fest and to town after. Saved the Best for last: your... More
