The Kennett House Bed and Breakfast is just the sort of place you expect to find in the country only this is located close enough to walk to the quaint town of Kennett Square. The magnificent wood adorning this historic and beautiful building make a stay just right. It is homey, the owner is charming, and a stay is just... More

This us a wonderful example if the Pennsylvania stone house- thick walls, big porch, many small rooms for living space, fireplaces, very straightforward in design. It's in- town location is a blessing (walk to restaurants and shops) and curse (traffic noise from street). They did provide a noise-blocking devise that was helpful. We had French toast made with French bread... More

Gilja provided the warmest of hospitality, not to mention a most delicious breakfast! This was by far the cleanest and best equipped B&B we've ever stayed at. Everything we needed was there....but best of all was the quiet and... More

We stayed at Kennett House for two days while visiting Longwood Gardens. It is a beautiful old home converted to a B&B. It has been beautifully preserved and modernized without compromising its charm and grace. The hostess was as nice and helpful as one could possibly expect, the breakfasts were delicious and nutritious and the room was spacious, comfortable and... More

My husband and I recently enjoyed an amazing oasis of calm and quiet in a marvelous 1910 home when we stayed with Gilja over Easter. The bed was sooo comfortable and the sheets were fabulous! The breakfasts were a work of art. It was a short walk to an excellent dinner at Byrsa Bistro (BYOB was nice to know from... More

The Inn is on a corner on the main street through town but our rooms was still very quiet and restful. The breakfast that is prepared each morning is sooo good. The fruit was... More

This is a lovely place in Kennett Square, the small town near Longwood Gardens -- clean, comfortable, very good breakfast and accommodating owner/hostess. Would definitely stop there again when visiting Longwood.

we are a mature couple who visited Kennett Square from Boston to see the gardens and mansions near by- we had the Longwood Suite for 2 nights mid-week so very quiet- breakfast was superb as Gilja is an excellent cook- she helped us with restaurant suggestions- ate at Le Verona, an excellent Italian place- downtown a very short walk- home...
